so i’ve been feeling a little under motivated and all in all in different levels of blah lately, what with all the latest events in kiev, ukraine where my partner’s relatives live
but! i made this little collage as a gift to my partner’s semi-trailer-driver friend who is also a passionate jeep trips enthusiast.
most of my partner’s buddies are semi trailer drivers. so if for some reason u r guessing what he does for a living – u guessed it right.
u can’t imagine how much russian cursing i hear when he takes a work related call from his colleagues. but that’s ok. as long as u don’t tell my dad (a children poet) nothing about it. 🙂
it’s a view from a wind shield of a car. used old map, postcards, some fabric scraps. and it looks prettier in real life.
and then i made this little flower brooch for a colleague at work, an older eccentric Romanian lady notorious for telling dirty jokes. not that i’m a fan. hearing a dirty joke from an elderly woman brings a whole new level of weirdness to it, i think.
so she always wears this beanie (indoors) and i thought it was missing a little embellishment.
she seemed pretty happy with the brooch, kissed me on both cheeks and put it on her beanie right away where it proudly stayed all day. 🙂
and lastly as it happens i might be the only one who knows how to tie a tie at my department (props and costumes) at work (local theatre)
as u all know (lol) the dress code concept is almost nonexistent in my part of the globe. white collar job people rarely actually wear white collars. or ties. or long pants for that matter. so when i was asked if i knew how to tie a tie i astonished myself and the company present and…tied a tie! last time i did it was maybe 20 years ago in my early teens.
i guess, u just never know when and which seemingly useless knowledge could be helpful in life. or something.
i leave u with this ‘naglaya morda’ (‘brazen face’) as we call him who deliberately chooses wrong times and places to take his nap
