Hi Dear Friends and Hi to you coming to Evilla's cove for the first time!
After a while crafting watching and hanging around, I seem to have found my way.
Maybe the story is not exactly like I told you at the beginning of this post, but I really have found my way as a "boxes whisperer".
When I buy the boxes they are plane and they seem to be sleeping, but when I put them in front of me on the table they begin telling me stories and suggesting to me what they want to become.
CALL IT INSPIRATION (since we all grown ups do not believe in magic!!! =^_^=)
I hope this is my way and I hope to be finally able to "grow in" something.
Decorating boxes will give me the chance to use all the materials I love and it can be so various that I will not have time for getting bored!
(*_* please, bear with me and my silly writings! ^_^)
Here below some old and new works in progress (....yes...I still didn't finish anything!!!!!)
The "Oak genie story box" is going forward...little spoiler: in the inside part of the lid I will write his story or a story with a oak as a main character
"the koi's" box (still have something with fishes anyway!)
the fishes still have to be finished and I have made this a little bit special: at the bottom of the lid there is a ZEN thought of HUANCHU DAOREN (it's in Dutch just because I was reading the Zen book in Dutch *_*)
here the translation:
As fishes dart through water, they are forgetful of the water; as birds fly on the breeze, they are not conscious that there is a breeze. Discern this, and you can transcend the burden of things and enjoy natural potential.
(lots more here: daoren)
I hope you like these updates and I will try to have some finished stuff soon!
this is not really "well made" the wall paper (fabric) is cut badly and badly glued to the wall
...but I like it and I am waiting for it to tell me its story..maybe there will be some "reorganization", we'll see...
MY BEETLE EGG!!!!
there was a woman selling eggs that she painted with acrylics (mostly miniatures)(mostly animals)...the great fun is her husband was cleaning kind of "sandblasting" and varnishing the eggs for her. That was really romantic! <3_<3>
there were very big ostrich eggs and very small ones like the one I have bought (I forgot to ask her on which egg it was made) she just doesn't use chicken eggs (that wouldn't be so élitaire...*_*)
have a look now...isn't it great?
Mémé Slegers lives in Genk and if any of you is interested in her works...I have her phone number :-)
with this little treasures I SAY GOOD NIGHT and I am off to bed!
dreamy hugs to all of you
