Ship modeling

Hello people! This article is dedicated to one of my friends, but he’s not actually a real friend, he’s a virtual one (I met him only on Facebook and no worries, my husband knows him :)). Although I didn’t meet him personally, I know he’s very responsible, ambitious and very, very talented! Talented because he’s building ships! Real ships only on a smaller scale. You should see those ships, they’re absolutely amazing! The idea came to my friend long time ago, when his father was the captain of a ship. At that time he probably felt attracted by ships and like he said: “With a good will and some skills, everything is possible”! If working hard, every day, it can take  up to 3 months to finish a ship! 3 months of daily work!!! Unbelievable how big fans of their hobbies people can be! I wish we would have more people like him, this planet would bloom immediately! :)

Here are some of his works and I really hope there will be more of them:

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow…

Hey everyone! I was just thinking couple days ago, it’s already middle of December and I still didn’t see snow…What is happening with our world?! Where are those huge snow hills? Where is the winter that we were having when we were kids?! For these questions I didn’t find answers, but I finally saw snow today!!! It was snowing all day long, snowflakes everywhere! I love this! Though I need to confess I don’t really like when it’s cold outside, snowflakes are making me melt and I don’t feel anymore that it’s cold, I just see the magic of the winter, the charming spirit of Christmas and New Year and I become happy at once!!!

So, actually snowflakes are not just small pieces of ice that we can see, they’re much more, each of them has its own world, it’s own texture and shape. And may be they seem so tiny, but they’re beautiful, because they’re all different and now I’ll prove this to you!

These are snowflakes if checked closely, with macro photography. Never thought they can be so beautiful!!!

And these are pictures which my husband took today, isn’t this gorgeous?!

Hand embroidery

My mother-in-law is doing hand embroidery. I was truly amazed when I saw her works for the first time, you need to be big fan of hand embroidery to do this. And my mother-in-law is a big fan! Recently I found out that this skill is inheritated from her mother, who is also doing hand embroidery, then I understood why she loves to do this. The only thing that I still don’t understand is why she’s not showing to the world her talent, she has a lot of marvelous embroidered articles and she’s keeping them in boxes. I felt sorry for the embroidery, I think it deserves more than this.

I would like you to appreciate this too.

This is only a small part of all her talent, I even created a site for her, I want so much to make her embroideries known by people, I’m sure everybody would love them! Soon, she’s having an exhibition and who knows, maybe after that the world will appreciate her hard, but fabulous work.
