this and that and turning 30…

+++some new items in the shop, a bracelet in the style of the duizendbloem series, with big round silver links and glass beads dangling from them…and a new necklace of cornflower millefiore! 😀

dewy grass bracelet

+++ …and there’s another bracelet in the making in shades of a forest pond and I’ve made some other colour collections in beads, waiting to become bracelets! Also half a necklace of daisy millefiore beads & silver hoops, and I’ve been running around with this ring idea of silverplate, stone and silverwire in my head for a couple of months now, just need the time (and energy…) to get it out…
And I still haven’t told about The Project. Still gonna. Here’s a little teaser…

+++I turned 30 two weeks ago. Yay! It actually made me quite happy knowing I survived my slightly insane and confusing twenties, and came out at the other end knowing and accepting myself…a bit of phoenix thing. Although celebration has been postponed a bit: treating myself to a full 2-day migraine attack on the day itself, and receiving a visit from rheumatism in my right hand/arm since then. I wondered why my hand and wrist was so stiff and wouldn’t warm up the last month until my arm muscles started smarting and there were jolts of pain in my wrist and shoulder, and I started feeling feverish and tired…Grrr.
Oh well, at least I know now and am taking care of it. Mostly by tea, as usual, and showers, and resting…
Still, it’s a step up from last year when I had the flu on my birthday. I should seriously consider having my birthday officially on a healthier day, or move south or to Australia… :-p

+++what I did do on my birthday before the migraine kicked in, was going to this movie, aanrijding in Moscou, a Flemish movie that plays in Gent, in my neighbourhood! Hilarious. And very educational for a non-Ghentian like me. The buildings I pass nearly every day! The dialect (accent really, it was still quite decent…)! The food (bloedworst, stoverij en waterzooi…)! :-p Have a look at the trailer even if you don’t speak Dutch…

+++and I saw a documentary last week about wildlife photographer and film maker Simon King whose work touched me profoundly. He has a way with animals (and people) that’s incredible, like at one point he had to care for two orphaned cheetah cubs and get them ready to survive in the wild, showing they all lived together, the purring cheetahs (then almost fully grown, big cats!) & him lazily hanging around in the reservation… his love and respect for the animals (and nature, and people) is quite contagious. I think we should clone him, we could use more of him in this world! :-p
