Love is patient

Details of handmade vintage notecard hanger with Hollyhock flowers

Hello there!

I’m lost for words but my heart is full of love and I wish I could tell you all that I know is going to happen!
I can’t do it here as it’s simply too much and I can only do so in person. I hate to open my heart on social media and platforms like even my own website. I am a REAL person, not a VIRTUAL reality. The internet has brought so much pain and destruct in my life, that it’s even a miracle that i’m still here sharing. That’s only because I know God has a plan for me and he doesn’t want me to give up, ever. He also has a plan for you, and that’s my message for you today….. live your life to the fullest with everything that comes your way, the pain, the laughter, the beauty, the disasters, just anything! At the end of the storm there’s a golden sky! Come to Jesus and live! Soon he will come!
You can count on that! Good things come to those who wait! Hallelujah!
The Trumpets will sound, work on Earth will be suspended and we will all bow on our knees for the King!

Believe and you’ll receive

What you focus on increases

Boy, how much i’ve focussed and focus and believed and belief on what I love to see manifesting in my life.
It’s still not there, but almost, i’m sure. It was worth all the waiting, tears and pain.
I can already see the real signs of my dreams. For God never lets me down!
We are in for thousands of miracles! Through the tears we’ll see the light!
I’ve added some great music in between my artwork for today.
From my heart to you! I love to speak to you through music and art!!!💖

Four pinks

Hello there!

A quiet morning here in my surroundings. I’m on a roll with my beads again. Still so much on the ‘to share’-shelf! Today i’m sharing these bright pink bracelets that I created. My favorite one is the wave bracelets with the coral red superduo and dark purple bicone beads. I love the color combination of that one. So vibrant and happy! I created that one from a pattern from Beadesire jewelry which I found on Etsy. The other two bracelets are patterns from aroundthebeadingtable.com. Coïncidently I saw yesterday that I did my first pattern with superduo beads one year ago! It’s amazing how fast one can learn beadweaving in only a year! It’s simply keep on trying and making mistakes and learn from them, just like with all things is the case. Never give up! In the beginning I struggled with different needle sizes, sorts of threads etc. After I while I found out that most beaders experienced the same, haha. Funny how we invent ‘our own wheel’! Now i’m completely addicted to using all kinds of beads and am not hesitant anymore on trying new kinds of beads and patterns. It’s all a magical path in which I grow and learn more and more.

Another thing i’ve started again is playing music on the ukelele. I played ukelele when I was young. The photo on the left is me playing a gospel song at the wedding of my niece Maureen. I’ll never forget those moments. So precious! Later, when I was married I gave my beloved ukelele to our grandson when he was young. Lately I started missing playing the ukelele and decided to buy a new one. I gave my husband a guitar for his birthday a couple of years ago, and tried to play that one myself, but it’s too hard on my fingers. So…. a new ukelele it should be then.

Ukelele’s are not that expensive, so it was easy to pick one. I bought a tenor ukelele, instead of a soprano ukelele this time, which is a tiny little bit bigger and has a darker sound. I’ve grown up, so the size had to match as well 😂😂 And oh what fun it is to play ukelele again! It’s as if I never had quit! I’m already playing Elvis’ songs within a couple of days, haha! And even am learning the newest ABBA song ‘Don’t shut me down’, but that’s a bit more difficult. Anyway, long story short…… the more you learn the better you become, and the things you’ve learned will never part from you somehow.

I hope you like my eyecandy for today! I’m going to ‘string’ some more beads or shall I take the ukelele, as I can string that one too?!😍

Blessings,

Ingeborg

Details of handmade blue pink Regency ladies card with white flowers and bling bling stones

I am very fond of Victorian and Regency ladies styles as you might have noticed in my mixed media art pieces. So this is yet another handmade greeting card with Regency ladies added. And of course tons of flowers, glitter and glamour. This card has a pocket on the backside with some fun tags. On the inside there’s a pocket as well for a little gift or additional note, tickets or whatever. I also love to add some wordart, or expressions often. This time I chose this one:

Laughter is the closest distance between two people

Laughter…… something so important! Humor is my main weapon in life. I cannot do without. Me and my husband laugh day in and out, no matter what circumstances. Even in the most difficult hours we laughed and joked. I swear it’s so healing and so uplifting. It’s truly a medicin, in my humble opinion. So when things get tough, simply smile and/or tell a joke and it will break the tension! It’s true! Just try it! And did you know that when you only even lift up your mouth into a smiling position that that already generates good vibes and chemicals from your belly into your body?! So make sure to keep on smiling, no matter what ok!

That’s my message for today.

Blessings & Smiles
