ART & CRAFTS: Simple jewellery making

JEWELLERY MAKING is another of my passion and hobbies.
These were meant to be mine and my husband's wedding rings eheh I really loved the combination of colours and design.
I'm not someone attached to big juicy diamond rings. I prefer simplicity and design eheh. I don't care about expansive things.
I prefer trinkets or bigiotteria as we say it in Italy. If I need to wear something I prefer the handmade ones because Imma lose that shit in less than a week πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚.
I don't wanna lose a expansive ring. I would never forgive myself. Not because I care about the stupid ring but because I will feel really guilty to have wasted the money of my husband like that. He was the one that liked to present real jewellery to me. After I had a talk with him tho, I made him change his mind and save the money for something more useful or to just keep in the back. 😜

Btw I'm talking about me here, ok? My opinion for myself ONLY. Please dont take offense in any ways, ok? Ahahahah

I hope you all will have a great day 😊❀️

I wish I could've someone like the cat sometimes eheh 🀣😊❀️

I don't really like to be alone. Noone does I think, right?
I'm an introvert, asocial and pretty difficult to get near to, type of person. I have exceptions tho eheh. If sense worthy people (rare), that have a hidden gem in them, I open up and become more comfortable.
I used to love my alone time but to be alone now make me feel empty and scared. Fear is ok. I can manage that but I really hate feeling empty. It make me feel like the last bit of humanity I have is slipping away.
I have few friends here that I absolutely adore but they all live kinda far and I can't meet them often because I don't drive here. People here are really wilde on the road 😨.
Literally: "rules of the road what?? Nahhh. I wanna cause an incident today". At times I think they think that way πŸ˜‚.
I love my friends and they love me too so, when I feel alone, I remind myself that and I feel better. I send a msg to them whenever I miss them too much but I never talk about it XD ahahahahah I just ask how they are, what they are doing or I just send them a random hugs and hearts eheh.

Most of time I'm the cat in the picture πŸ˜… but to be honest sometimes I really wish to just be the dog and have my own cat to just stay with me. But who would I call? Let's be sincere πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ ahahah. They are all busy and I respect that. I know life is never easy for anyone so I text them nice and funny things to make them smile instead of talking about me. Wrong I know (I shouldn't keep things in) but also GOOD because seeing them smile and be the confort they need make me happy eheh. I work weirdly I know ahahahaha but I love my weirdness.
I love myself 😊❀️ and those are some words I never thought I would ever be able to say about myself in the past. LOVE + MYSELF? Me? Hahaha.
Life have interesting turns πŸ˜„πŸ€£πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ.
Kinda curious to see what happens next so I will keep living for now eheh

Trying to use colours more. This is one of my older draws. Flowers=colours, right? XD ahah

I remember that when I draw this I use it and stress relief. That's why the paper is super full eheh.
I'm always trying to use colours more. I love to draw but I can't seem to do well with colours. I love colours but can seem to create a good combination. It's a interesting challenge for me tho eheh.
The flowers that I drew are random so I don't know if they are similar to real flowers ahahah.

I hope you all are having a good day my fellow artist and art lovers.

Mostly can use the things for free (and you can do lot of things) but, of course, if you want more specific brushes or colour palettes you can decide to pay for the app.
I still use them for FREE 🀣😜

They are really nice and good apps.

So true 😊. What is the meaning of beauty for you? Do you agree with this statement?

Being yourself can be easy and very hard at the same time. When I stopped the masquerade everyone disappeared like smoke. I lost many but I also found some hidden gems that made my life shine again. I'm really grateful and I treasure their friendship.
Today I met up with my friend Jojo in a game online and it was super nice and fun eheh
I asked him: "Do you know that you are actually really sweet Jojo? I'm really happy to have you as my friend. You are awesome eheh".
His response was confusion 🀣 ahahah (I love him ahahah). He is on the scale of autism and he really can't understand emotions or socialize in person. Compliments for him are confusing things and he don't know what to say when I say things like that but he knows I mean it so he replied with 2 hugs emojis 😊 ( he knows those make me smile).
We have been friends for a year plus now and I'm super happy I found another gem πŸ’Ž. He can be himself with me and I can be fully myself with him. He accepts me as I am and this is rare for me eheh.

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see it". (Confucius)

Self-care and self love are vital on the path of healing.

Do you all practice this?
When is the last time you guys show love to yourselves? In which way?
Do you have a favourite things to do or eat?

I bought my favourite delivery food and a dessert I love the last time I remember.
There are not much things I do for myself actually. I'm a foodie tho 😜 so I love to have cheat days now and then as prise for my good work. You need to reward yourself sometimes. It's a healthy thing to do.
The last time I bought something, not essential, for myself was when I bought 20 special markers for colour my illustrations. There was a good offert and I couldn't resist. That was at list 3 years ago I think πŸ€”πŸ˜….

Feeling heavy and drained? This is one of the techniques I use to get back some energy and calm.

This is a mix between a meditating focus and a technique my psychology taught me in Italy. It requires a bit of concentration and the hot water of a shower.

1) Get in the shower.

2) On the hot water. Let it flow for a bit.

3) Close your eyes and try to focus only on the flow of the water. Picture the water in your mind. Listen to the sound of it. So constant and calming. Feel the warmth of the it on your body. It flow so smoothly and easily right?

4) All the bad staff happened during your day are heavy on you like you are covered in mud and mud can be cleaned away.
Now picture that in your mind and start to use a sponge/cloth with soup and start slowly to clean the "mud" away.
I want you to picture it in your mind. Look all the heavy mud grow tinner and tinner and then disappear totally.

5) Now picture in your mind (keep your eyes closed) the drain and all that mud going down it. Hear the sound of the black water slowly disappearing in the drain until is gone and you can see (in your mind) only clean water. Now close the water.

6) Ok now SLOWLY open your eyes. Allow yourself to feel lighter and see everything around you brighter.

7) Now take a deep breath.
Count to 5 when you INHALE.
Keep it in for 5. Now count to 5 while you EXHALE.

8) Now smile. Get out of the bathroom and dress yourself and go on with your day.

I usually do this in the morning or if I really feel low on energy.
I usually recite my mantras while doing this but you can say prayers or even just do the procedure only. Up to you.
I hope this can be helpful for someone. It works for me eheh 😊❀️
I hope you all will have a great day! Stay strong, love yourself and remember always that you are a gem πŸ’Ž. πŸ€—πŸ’ŸπŸ’ͺ😁

This is my take on the prompt: " draw a rat/hamster as a gangster" challenge 😁

I'm sorry I'm late but today was really not a good day for me. Anyway I chose to draw the gangster more on a chill family day vibe.
I really love how the rats came out in this draw eheh. I never drew a rat before and it took me awhile to figure it out yesterday 🀣.

Yesterday my prompt of the day was: "draw a curious old man" and this is my take on it.

At first I wanted to use draw the classic OLD stereotype but then I changed my mind. There are so much beautiful examples of "old" in our world. All have their beauty and story so I drew fashionable, well taken care and younged soul "old" man instead.
I think if you feel alive in your soul you will be always evergreen just like if you are very young but you feel like an old soul inside the you will act old more than an actual "old" person.

Ahahah it's a fun and interesting thing to me.

What do you think? What do you feel?
Old? Young? Middle?
What do you think of the gentleman I drew? I think he is cool 😊❀️

THE DUALITY IN MY MIND My art prompt of the day was: "Draw your corrent mental state as a person".

Meet the twins everyone! 😊❀️
Momo and Sunnie are two cute sisters that live together in a house call Mind. They are the total opposite of eachother but they are united by a magical bond.

MOMO: pretty child like. She is a smart but blurry sleeping beauty that love good food, sleeping and close herself in her bubble. She doesn't like to socialize and she is not really bothered by time or what it's around her. She like to live in her own world and often uses her abilities to change the world around her to fit more her selfish needs.
Warning: be very careful around her because you might end up lost in her way of living pretty easily πŸ˜…. The ability to change the reality that she lives in can often create a mess and make you trap in a dream like state.

SUNNIE: she is the mature one of the two. She is driven by discipline, passion and will power. She is a hardworking badass girl that bows down to noone and keep the place organized and healthy. Sunnie work in collaboration with the "Persona Alliance". A group of sentient beings that keep her strong and help her to deal with any kind of issues. They also help to clean up the mess that Momo creates sometimes.
Warning: she is a good influence but often push herself too hard and forget that resting in not a weakness. When that happens Momo will collaborate with the "Persona Alliance" and help her sister to chill and take it slow until she will be able to get back on her feet.
As soon as Sunnie goes back up the "Persona Alliance" will cut Momo out for precaution. Ahahah they don't trust her.

CONCLUSION: Momo represents my foggy and depressive state of mind. Sunnie represents my will power to get better and work on myself. They will collide now and then along the path like sisters that fight. Sometimes one will prevail and some other time the other one will. Both can create a mess but there will be time where their collaboration will be vital for have balance.
The "Persona Alliance" are the voices of self-love, self care, the desire to get better, the love for life, the love for God if you are religious and many others that are the reasons for keep going towards a better future and a happier self.

I like to give a story at the characters I draw so yah eheh

Have a nice day everyone πŸ˜Šβ€οΈπŸ€—πŸ˜‰β€οΈ
