my dearests, sales are over and it has been a lot of fun!
You cannot imagine how thrilled it makes me feel to start working again and delight you with new creations over at my Jasmin Blanc Boutique! Also, while I was away from my workshop over in England, left without all my materials, not able to fully let go of my creative activities I learned (in fact I should say practiced) how to crochet. My grandma did teach me when I was just a little girl, but I had to look up all the stitches in English again to be able to read the patterns. Blessed be youtube for that!
Changing the subject, I want to share with you some pictures from last weekend.
There is a huge flea market type of event at Negreni each October, and normally we attend it not just because it is fun (and I get to eat a lot of sweet traditional cakes and cookies), but also because my grandmother sells traditional clothes (she is a dress maker in her own domain) to folk-dancers and everyone who is interested.
Bottom like is, we spent our Saturday there, I enjoyed it a lot, lots of junk as well, but it is always nicer for me to find the treasures underneath the silliness. Needless to say, I found two beautiful pairs of leather gloves and took lots of mental pictures observing the many -really- different people interacting! And last but not least I ate a lot of Kurtos kalacs with coconuts and sugar icing and enjoyed the day with my family.
As I said the other day, my first re-opening surprise to you is an incredible 5-day SALES over at Jasmin Blanc Boutiqe. And when I say incredible, I mean INCREDIBLE!
All you have to do is head over to Jasmin Blanc Boutique, select your favorite creations, all specially made by me, and then send me your order. The purchases made from 9 - 13 October will automatically benefit from this amazing sales.
-the 50% will be reduced from the sum total of all products ordered.
My posts have been quite scarce in these past months and along the way I blogged about my plans for the next year. I was about to leave to India to do development work there. I have spent the past 6 months in a "preparatory" college (those who have been there understand the reason for which I used quotation marks), where I met the wonderful person, who has been by my side in my best and worst moments over the past 3 months and still is.
What I would like to say first of all is how thankful I am for all the amazing people I met during these months, people who made me laugh, who made me cry, who pissed me off, who taught me a lot, who warmed my heard, who laughed and screamed together with me and who will stay in my heart forever!
A bit more than 2 weeks ago Gaspar and me, not all of a sudden, but through careful listening to our hearts, we decided to continue on our life-journey, this time seeking together all that we have been seeking separately until then. I feel that it was a good moment, it was our moment...
So presently we are in Romania, trying to quiet down are hearts of the unnecessary emotions and listen to what there is deep within. I truly believe this is everyone's truest guidance. This is what I did until now. Listing to my heart, I believe God speaks to me through her. And He guided me to this program where I met the amazing person I share my life with. Now He guided me back home. And the joy lies in the mysteries of the daily life!
I don't wish to make long explanations or speeches with great philosophies about anything. What I wish to say to you there is, don't let people, who are not even able to raise their own questions, drown you in the answers and advises they have found for your life.
Yet, not meaning to bore you with the story of my life, what is relevant here, is, that as for now Jasmin Blanc Boutique is more alive than ever, soon delighting you with new creations. But first I have two surprises. A mind blowing week of sales starting this Sunday, 9 October. And wrapping this up, a stunning giveaway will follow, featuring a ceramic kitten! Not to miss out on these events, don't forget to visit me here again!!!
