DIY cloud pouch

Yay! First time sewing a zippered pouch! It's cute though :D


If you take a look at my CO+K entry you'll find the tutorial to make one. Not cloud shaped, but oh well, it's rather simple to draw a cloud out of an half circle XD
I made this little pouch for a swap:

The first of the year I took a walk on the beach and I saw this: a carpet of dead starfishes.

#3 photography post - Pink tree

Finally some serious posting again :D
I took the photo in a public garden in Salerno.
During Christmas period every corner of the city is embellished with awesome illuminations related to different themes.
The photo kinda sucks but the subject is very nice. Imagine to walk in a garden where trees, animals, flowers and plants are made of shiny, colorful little lights. Very suggestive!

Happy new year!!

I was looking for interesting shops in London few days ago and while researching I found an amazing site:



It's an online retailer to distribute fashion products from Asia. I don't know half of the brands there but I'm learning XD
So while browsing this piece of awesomeness I stumbled upon a very cute wallet and I remembered that I still had to make a xmas present to myself (lame excuse) so I bought this:



Isn't it cool 8D ?!
I found a lot more stuff that land up directly in my wish list XD

Talking about it I finally put my hands on a book I've wanted to read since forever. Well, I'd easily find it in a bookshop in Italy but I red the first volume in English and "A million little pieces" is the very first book I've ever red in English, so, apart from the fact that I loved it, I'm fond of it somehow and I wanted to continue to read the story in the original language.
So my awesome uncle who was in London for the New year's Eve bought it for me 8D



I'd like to gather all the useful links I know here, so I'm going to make a link page soon. Any advice about where you'd find cool stuff is always more that welcomed :D

Oks that's all for now. Happy new year everyone!!
