Taking Advice


Nikki reminded me earlier this week that it's important to just make something beautiful for oneself.

It's something that I don't seem to do very often. I usually only keep dodgy test pieces and prototypes for me...... then Steph double dared me to actually use one of the sparkly things that I bought this week.

I needed to make this thisafternoon. Some days start out OK, and then something crappy happens. I'm so glad that I can distract myself by just making something.

Nothing better than something sparkly to cheer you up, eh?

I hope everything is ok and that you'll feel better again soon!

Absolutely, in the mass production for market that is going on in my studio, i stopped to make myself a fruit bowl patchwork liner, like a retro mini table cloth, i'm thrilled. Makes me smile, love Posie

You should always make the best thing for yourself, then the doggy copies for others haha. Hope today was ok, I'm around if you want to catch up over the weekend or Monday.

Good on you Cam. Though all your work is beautiful. The piece you have made for yourself is fittingly gorgeous. xx

Nikki Cardigan said...

I'm very proud of you Cam. You get my 'Student of the Week' award!

Hoep everything is OK.. and that you are OK. xxx

Your flower is very pretty. Crafting is the best distraction or sometimes chocolate!

Sarah said...

Hey Cam,

Hang in there - you are so super strong.

I hope the day has got better. So good you made something for yourself... I WANT to do the same this weekend.

Tania said...

Cripes Cam, if ever there was a 'you' brooch! I know you didn't purposely set out to co-ordinate it with your blog header...and so I rest my case.

Hope tomorrow is a bigger, better day.

Copper Patch said...

Stunning work Cam. Can't wait to see you wearing it!
I hope whatever happened gets better/unhappens/fixes. Take care,
Ab

it is so important to make something for oneself :) it can do wonders for a persons state of mind

Kellie Christie said...

I totally love this one too!! It's nice to have a little bling bling :-) I usually do the same thing and keep to dodgy pieces for myself.

Leni and Rose said...

I'm so glad you made something for yourself - it's just gorgeous.

Melanie said...

Making something with your own hands for yourself is self medicating the good ol' healthy way and some times we need to bump up our dose. I think I need some good ol' medicine too at the moment so I think I shall take that advise too:)
