Moving forward

There are a million reasons why you shouldn't, but you'll never know unless you try.

This is obvious for many, but I feel it's a lesson I've forgotten a lot along the way. I'm trying to take more risks and try new things -- this is why I now have a blog. It's funny how when I actually put myself out there, I have so much fun. 

Last week I started improv classes; so fun and funny! I'm really gonna have to think quickly while listening at the same time and be hilarious. Working on my bravery in this challenging class.

My friends and I put together a proposal for a new theatre festival. Keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get in and be able to create our French children's play.

I've been playing volleyball for a couple of months now, something which I didn't realize how much I missed. Thank you to my sister for getting me out on the court and introducing me to her lovely team! 
I love the excitement when things start to fall into place: the ball is now rolling. It's a rugged ball that can conquer any bumps. Can't wait to see what comes next in this period of transition.

Pinecone pompom

I finally crafted yesterday. Here's my pinecone pompom. I followed the tutorial at resurrection fern. I absolutely love this blog; it's my daily escape from the city. I can't get enough of the early morning nature photography and how well her projects blend into the forest.

Two days left of the One of a Kind Show and I just wanted to give you a heads-up on one of my favourites. Incredibly beautiful jewelry full of charm, vintage pieces and bakelite!! Here's some of the pieces, see the rest of the moonrox designs or shop etsy. Check out moonrox blog for a One of a Kind coupon and proceed to booth Z-15.

Holiday Parols

Was over at beautiful inspiring blog musings & tidbits and fell in love with parols; Christmas lanterns in the Phillippines.




I'm drawn to the more neutral coloured images I found. For the ambitious crafters out there, I found this tutorial. I'm going to visit some nearby Filipino shops and see if I can bring a parol home. I'll let you know.
