I have a fascination for architecture, and every time I pass this building, I slow down and stare at its decorative façade, imagining what purpose it would have served back in its day and what secrets it holds. Like the movie “Midnight in Paris”, I sometimes dream of being transported to a time gone by. I would for sure select either the 1920s or the late 1950s-early 1960s, for their technological advances, innovations and fashion.
While boutique hopping, I discovered a gorgeous braided shawl. While the price was quite excessive, I vowed to recreate it for a fraction of the cost. I must admit that although I pride myself in being artistic and detail-oriented, promoting the hand-made and seeing concepts through from start to finish, I have absolutely no patience for knitting. From the stitch-counting to the resulting unevenness between rows, it is more of a source of frustration than relaxation for me.
I can, however appreciate a well-crafted scarf or sweater and applaud all those who stick with this craft.
New year, new portfolio, new blog. Welcome to this exposé of my art, both old and new, journaling my passion and creativity.
