Baby elephant - Handmade felt bookmark part 3

Good evening everyone,
I had another great day, thanks to the God Sun and thanks to another fact: I have tickets to go to Italy in 2 months for my birthday! I can't wait to get a proper summer day. My birthday happens to be also my parents' anniversary, it's gonna be 33 years together this year, sweet.

Speaking of sweetness...I love animals and one of my favourite is the elephant, unfortunately though, I have never seen one live because I have never been to a zoo in my life (and I never will), but who knows, maybe next year I'll go to Kenya or somewhere else where I will see a real elephant, that would be amazing! Anyway, they inspired me in making these super cute bookmarks :)

Homemade bread!

It's Wednesday evening, which means: half of the week is gone already :)

This week, I carried on with my bookmarks (I know, again, but I really love them!) but I didn't have the time to take pictures....sorry!

I've been particularly happy the past two days because of the beautiful sky and sun (oh my God, did I really say two? Yes, it was only two days of sun, as sad as it is....I can't wait to move back to sunny Italy <3).
I started to go to the gym, I am taking it more seriously than I have ever done and I am very proud of it!

This is the view on the way back from the gym; I get to walk through the beautiful Brockwell park, which is my favourite spot in London.

So, S. started to bake homemade bread and I am very happy because I am well aware that the sliced bread we were used to buy is very unhealthy, full of preservatives and God knows what else. 
He now bakes bread almost every night and it's delicious! We took the recipe from the internet and the result is great, perfect for breakfast or lunch.
These are some pictures I took. Some days he puts olives or makes other experiments, it's always nice, but I have to say that for me there's nothing like a delicious loaf of plain bread.

I am trying to start as a freelance translator, mainly in Czech republic, it's not easy because working full time doesn't give me a lot of time for freelancing, but I'll try my best, I really want to go away from London as soon as possible, I need the sun, I need it for more than 2 days every 2 weeks.
S. was thinking of going to Brazil for 3 months and get work experience there. This would be doable if I get to translate while I am there, so that I can have an income and save a bit of money, even if Brazil is expensive....we'll see, who knows. For now, I hope in more sunny days :)
Good night,

Handmade felt bookmark - part 2

Hello hello!
I am back from Italy and I have a new job, a bit boring but still better than waking up at 5 am... This is why I didn't have time to post anything this week. I guess I still have to get use to my new timetable :)
This is a picture of one of the amazing places where we have been, so beautiful....
Italia, Cinque Terre

Anyway, few weeks before going to Italy, I went to the unique Makers Market in Brixton. Instead of the usual Saturday Market, there are several stalls of makers, creative people who make and sell everything, from purses and hair accessories to pillow and brooches, all handmade. Some of these creations were beautiful and the people were just amazing, so keen on speaking to you and have a chat, I even had a cup of tea in a stall where you could tell you opinion on how to improve Brixton.

I can't wait to go again!

Unfortunately my sewing machine is still broken :( so I am still doing felt bookmarks and brooches, very beautiful, but I miss making my little purses!
