Need Luck?

This weeks Europeanstreetteam challenge theme is Cheap but gorgeous, hosted by my Latvian friend Rita alias Alatvian. As I have lot's of projects to work on, I created very fast and simple earrings fit for chinese princess or funky city girl. There is mix of plastic and glass beads and even svarovski crystals, and on the top of it are chinese cinnabar pentagons inscribed with symbols of good luck and long life.

And while I was writing this, luck came to me as etsy admin FP ! Don't believe it LOL

Moms are Heroes

Previous was hard week for me. Lots of unfinished local projects and bills, bills, bills in the mailbox made me depressed and angry. As a result here are my two treasuries -

...want to scream...

and ...strings and wings...
Then came mothers day..
I made treasury thinking of my mom and her favorite grey and blues. admin choose it to be on FP on monday morning. When my mom came, I showed her the list, and her absolute favorite was Iris the Optimist by yourdoll. Just what I needed - a little drop of optimism and love from my family and mom.

And now - have to continue crafting and hope for the better times :)

And thank you for those who included my items in their treasuries. It is good to feel support and big shoulder of your team behind :)
