work in progress
checked yet another project off of my to do list
my partner modeling
i love textile jewelry
i badly wanted to buy a piece from this amazing etsy shop for my mom who is a real sucker for all things colorful (good thing she doesn’t know about this blog otherwise i’d be ruining the surprise) but totally couldn’t afford it.
so i had no choice but to make it myself. or that’s what i told myself deciding to skip cooking a proper dinner the other night…
other than that i returned to work from my maternity leave
and keep being inventive with various household devices on zero budget and environmental awareness in mind:
maybe looks weird but is quite efficient
on a random note: being introvert is exhausting, remind me not to go on these saturday picnics with 15 little children covered in mud running around with sharp branches….
and happy christmas to you all

hello!!! long time no see!! i missed u!
how’s life treating u all? i’m pretty fine thanks, nothing much to complain about.
been stitching and sewing some gifts to some of my pregnant friends. and also altering loads of second hand bought clothes.
cause i only shop in thrift/second hand stores. cause it’s cheap. it doesn’t hurt that it’s more eco-friendly. but mostly it’s cheap.
here’s some of the baby rattles and other stuff i made lately. all from upcycled clothes/fabrics
if u shake them they make a noise of wooden beads hitting the tiny plastic box from inside. was a little worried that the noise is annoying but my partner says it’s ok….
aaaaaand this gift kit that took me like 2 months to complete. it is really more complicated to make than it looks. also i shot myself in the leg multiple times in the process while making these little puffs 4 the baby rag
other than that i’ve been vigorously trying to be a better cook mostly for my hard working partner’s sake. not working out so well just yet. but it will, it will in the end…… 🙂 i keep telling myself i have no choice, we have to eat, right? so we might as well eat something tasty and healthy…. the fact that we have an absolute opposite taste in food complicates it a bit though…. one of the few things we both love is fried or boiled potatoes. russians, right? although technically he is a former ukranian and i am tatar and there’s a difference. but we won’t get into that right now.
also been up to some other stuff which i tell u all about in the posts to come.
happy and fuitful spring cleaning to you all people!
p.s on a random note, one of the admittedly few good things my life experience tought me it that u never know who has an unexpected gift 4 u. like the most unlikely people been sharing some interesting recepies with me, and other life advices. u just have to put some thought into picking the good ones… 🙂
p.p.s. my word of the day is integrity. picked it from ‘true detective’ . and no, i don’t have it. but i wish i did.
