Like I told you guys before I'm kind of a DIY artist.
I love making my own things and this goes for everything, from the food I eat to the art I display in my house and everything in between.
So, a few years back, outraged with the prices of accessories I decided to make my own necklaces, earrings, keychains, etc ... They were quite a success and I started to make them for sale, I was doing pretty good but then life got in the way, time was short, I wasn't capable of responding to the requests so I gradually stopped my little business.
A while ago, I started to miss those moments when my creativity was lost in the beads and I just did whatever came to my mind so I decided to make them again.
I even made a Facebook page for my small business, and even tough I don't post everyday, not even close to it, I still manage to have jewelry requests and I get things done, even tough most of the times I forget to take pictures of the requests and then I don't post them.
Either way it's moving along slowly but moving and I am my biggest customer because I want everything I make ;), some times it's really hard for me to part with a piece, but I still do it.
I'll leave with pictures of some of my work and if you're interested you can check them at A Pint of Love Facebook page.

Altough the day wasn't great because I broke the lock on one of my favourite bags, it was still a pretty great day.
We had some visitors so we strolled around the city showing them the views.
It doesn't seem that way because I only remembered to take my #OOTD pictures when we were already at the train station ready to say goodbye to our visitors.
Still it was a day well spent!

Today I'm wearing a very very old T-shirt, I've had it for around 12 years now, it was one of my first buys when I started working because I was obsessed with the brand.
It had super graphic designs, with great prints and awesome materials.
The brand is Religion and sadly I can't find it anywhere nowadays but I still have some very cherished item's.
Hope you like it. Happy Easter everyone!

I find that a great and cheap way to make my dream house come true it's to DIY some art and even furniture that was given to me or that other people just don't want.
Rearranging old pieces of furniture, painting them and giving them a new look it's a great way to have exactly what you want without spending to much money.
The same goes for the art you place around your house.
I'm not a very experienced DIYer but I try and I get better every time I do it.
I wanted some simple, black and goldish paintings to hang in my room, but I just couldn't find anything that fitted into my taste or my budget.
They either fitted one or the other but never both, so I decided to buy two small canvas (2€ a piece) , I already had some oil paint and spray paint that my mother had given me and a old doilly that was good for the trash can.
I painted one canvas black and the other golden, then when they were dryed I placed the doilly on them and filled the spaces with the opposite colour.
In result I now have two lovely, soft paintings to hang.
Exactly what I wanted for only 4€, I know that if I had to buy the paint it would be a little more, but even then it wouldn't be more than 10€ for both paintings.
I'll leave you with the pictures and when they're totally dryed out I'll show you them hanged up.
