my sister recently returned from a 5 week trip with my mom visiting laos and thailand, I havn't been back since we immigrated to canada, they had a great time. I always wonder that if we never came to canada would I still me a maker. I'm not sure how much your life paths changes what's inside, I know that I was making since I was a kid and I knew I always wanted my own business, I still remember making beaded jewellery and friendship bracelets and trying to come up with a company name and dreamt about the logo design. my sister brought back some beautiful textiles and other goodies, the top piece is a simple tote bag and the bottom piece is a shawl, the middle piece is a fabric that I'm thinking of making into pillows.
I also wanted to show you a close up photo of a new ring j bought me from the flea on sunday and the brass ring I wear as my wedding band. my original engagement ring was something that resembles a branch with buds designed by anne sportun, and our wedding bands match and was made by leif benner. I got the brass ring when I was visiting geninne in mexico. it's funny how your style changes and these two rings are so me right now.
