Finally I managed to get some kind of customized design uploaded to this blog! I'm such a newbie at blogging and I've never worked with custom css so it took me a while to understand what I was doing.
My old blog design was pre-defined and although it was cute, I really wanted to get some of my own stuff in there.
I'm happy that at least I managed to get my own background and banner up! Another project in the works.. (or work in progress :)) Happy me!
I just wanted to share my poofy ball with ya'll ^^. His actual name is Coco, but he really only responds to the name "Peachy" (I found out only about 2 years ago - and I'm not sure how) and I really don't know why! Now I think: "It fits him more really.. His forehead is kind of peach-colored.." Usually he really does not like my creative projects.. He wants attention, and if he's not getting it he will try to demolish whatever is keeping him from that.
However a little while ago we did a little project for him, the stubborn old lovebird.. We hung a rope right in front of the window and added a little bell.. He loves it! We have restored the peace in our house..
Etsy is what I've been missing my whole life. I've always loved to shop but I always hated it so much to find out that many many many more people had the same clothes/shoes/bags etc! Same with IKEA... I'm not saying I don't like their stuff, because I do and it's cheap so.. But if you have more than three or four items from them in your house.... Once I went into a friend's home and I remembered recognizing all their furniture being from IKEA. Again, I'm not saying it wasn't a pretty house, but just not special. Empty, without a story..
I'm taking the Taste Test now.. very fun to do and appearantly I have expensive taste.. Dresses over $600 dollars?!
The one little thing I love most was this lovely vintage style necklace for only $ 11.50.
What is a mandala?
The meaning of mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning "circle." Even though it may be dominated by squares or triangles, a mandala has a concentric structure. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The meanings of individual mandalas is usually different and unique to each mandala. The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolizes cosmic and psychic order.
The meaning of mandala and everything around it seems a bit too hazy for me personally, but a friend told me it was fun so I thought why not try it? And actually it was fun! Will I do it again? Dunno, but I did get a bit hazy myself when making it! ^_^
Oooooh I love the fact that it's spring!!! Makes me so happy! A few days ago I went and started crocheting flowers.. And I mean non-stop. Cuz they were so easy and quick to make, oh and did I mention that it's spring and I love love love it?
But now the next thing to do is finding a purpose for them.. Will I stick them on a purse, will I stick them in my hair?
One thing I am quite happy about is the necklace I made, was fun to do actually. And it's quite nice to wear..
Hope you like it!
When browsing (maybe more shopping ^^) today, I found this welcome mat which I thought had a great quote:
I thought: what a nice thing to do for yourself if you buy a welcome mat like that! But since I already have a welcome mat, I thought: hmmm can I come up with something else.. Maybe I can... .... ....
Taadaaa!!! I have this chalkboard thingy in my hall and so I took some crayons and "borrowed" the quote!
Okay, so it's not my very own quote, but it still makes me happy everytime I enter my home or just pass by it going from one room into another! Maybe I will go and still get that welcome mat.. (available at H&M online shop)
Other Happiness Quotes I found inspirational:
Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy! - Anne Frank
To live happily is an inward power of the soul. - Aristotle
Being happy doesn't mean you're perfect. It just means you've decided to look beyond the imperfections. - K.B Indiana (age 14)
