Floral embellished handbag

Good day to you!

Hopefully you are doing well!? I am not, but I have to keep my chin up. I am intensely sad these days. Don’t know why….. I guess because of the dark days that the world is going through. The country i’m living in is slowly being teared apart. We are in bad weather, that’s for sure! Anyway, I thought it was a good moment to share this flower power handbag with you. A couple of years ago I bought this handbag from someone in the USA. I loved it so much, but I thought it needed more embellishments. So when I bought it I had in mind to add florals myself. When it came it was like the picture below. This is how I bought it. Only a piece of white Venice lace and a couple of buttons. The straps where a bit too short for me as well, as I want to wear it crossed over my body. And as i’m a plus size, it needed a little bit of extension. I embroidered a lot of seed beads, sequins, flower beads and also added some of my handmade crochet flowers made of acrylic yarns. And of course some extra buttons and such. I took lots of photos, as you can see below. I hope you like the eyecandy for today!
Have a blessed weekend and please pray for peace!

A bunch of bracelets

Handmade memory wire bracelets in purple pink and red by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Hi there!

I’m ‘throwing in’ a bunch of bracelets today, 😀.
I don’t know what’s happening with me, but i’m creating soooooo much these days, I can hardly keep up with my own pace. 🐌Do you know what I mean? It’s crazy how many cards, earrings, tags, bracelets, hangers and such I still have laying there on my desk to be photographed and shared. But that is good. At least i’m not bored and try to spend my days as well as I can. I have had some very painful health issues to deal with lately, and so it feels good to digest all that bad matter through creativity. I feel a bit of a relief now, thank God. One of those issues is an inflammation in my foot due to which I cannot walk anymore. It’s now more than 5 months on a row that that’s really bugging me, and i’m so done with it, if you know what I mean. I now have special shoes 👞 and inlays to cope with the matter, and that seems to give some relief . I’m on a good path again. Like I said in my biography, being creative is my therapy, my life line, my life elixer, my everything! It keeps me above the surface and makes me feel alive. Anyway…… here is a ‘pile of bracelets’ I created recently. Some purple ones and a red/gold bracelet. The red gold one is the most special one as that’s a prayer bracelet with pretty gold toned religious charms like a cross, a heart and an anchor.
