resolutions, I know I'm a bit late


Hello!
For me it's that moment of the year when I start thinking about what I would like to change in my life. Nothing too serious, but small things that make our life a bit easier and happier.

I would like to have more time for reading books, at the moment I'm reading a super interesting book called "1421 the year China discovered the world" by Gavin Menzies. I love history books (I studied Modern History in college!) and I also really like anything that has to do with explorations.

I would like to make more time for making pasta from scratch. My husband a couple of years ago got me a pasta machine, I've only used it 4/5 times. To tell the truth I think sometimes I'm just too lazy!

I would like to work on new projects more often. Last week I went back to the studio and I started working on a few new things, you can see one of my new wooden magnets/brooches below.

I would love learning new techniques, such as weaving. This weekend I'm going to try this DIY loom I found on Etsy blog, it looks gorgeous, doesn't it?

Any resolutions for this year? Any new crafts you want to try?

  1. Mirta la spillina è stupenda. Sai rendere raffinato anche il neon! Anch'io vorrei imparare a tessere e ho provato qualcosa simile al tutorial che hai postato. Vedrai che sarà molto divertente!

  2. I love the neon touch :-) and I thought about weaving just a couple of days ago, used to do that as a kid! I love fresh pasta, my friend has a machine. It's quite a bit of work, but the result is worth it. Looking forward to seeing more of your creations in the new year!

  4. I also am working on new projects and would like to learn some new skills and relearn some things I've forgotten. I also am trying to read more. I used to read so much, and then last year I felt like I was always too busy or tired to read. Must change that. Also, I love your brooch. :)
