I lived up to my expectations: I made exactly 12 headbands, here in nice blue shades. Funny detail in this picture: The prints on the wall reflecting in the glass counter. The talented artist is Lea Bolvig, a friend of mine and Brinja‘s brother‘s girlfriend.
Here is me showing off a yellow headband. Love that color. Should you wonder why I’m back with my old glasses: I’m kinda experiencing some problems with the new pair. Not so clear after all…
Here you can see a finished flower headband. I found the picture on Brinja’s blog under the category shop! So many good things to find there =)
I’m already behind the sewing machine again. Another 12 headbands is my goal for today.
Note: the machine smells of basil, very distracting… ;-)
This is what I’ve been doing today:To understand the awesomeness of this picture people need to know that I never even attached a button to a shirt or anything else that has to do with sewing. When joining Brinja’s boutique I really wanted to learn how to sew the flowers for the amazing headbands Brinja makes. So after 30 seconds of trying to sew on a straight line I just started making flowers. Brinja could instantly see that I’m a natural ;-) Today I made 12 flowers in different colors. It took about 3 hours (Brinja makes 12 in like 30 minutes). It was a fight but I love looking at the result. It feels amazing to do something crafty, something where you see a difference by the end of the day.
Ever since I started working in Brinja’s boutique, I’ve felt more obligated to wear nice things – in a good way. I own quite a number of dresses, but I never really wear them. But being in the boutique, I feel a bit more fashionable (if that makes any sense).
When cleaning out my closet, I (re)discovered this black and white tube dress by only. Trying to take pictures of myself in it, I realized how impossible it is to take a good shot of yourself. So to all the people out there with the ability of taking great self portraits – you deserve my respect!
Here’s some of my desperate tries:
Today has been a nice day:
- I enjoyed the sun that has finally come back to Denmark
- I handed in my paper
- I felt good about my workout
- I had a fun time at Brinja‘s butik
- I had a bagel for dinner
- I got a long massage
- I planned a three course meal
- I went shoe-shopping
Today I went out shopping – more or less successfully. My mission was to get shoes – I came home with bags full of workout gear… You gotta look good working out! Try to guess what my favorite brand is ;-)
Morten really doesn’t enjoy shopping – which is not a problem, ’cause he got me as his very own personal shopper. Let’s hope he likes the things I picked out!
