Attacus Atlas, Part II

So, they came to our house in February. Following the instruction we stored the pupae in the refrigerator until April. Then they were place in a special corner, we cared for a proper humidity and temperature. And waited. Waited. Waited... The spring ended. We still waited... The summer was almost gone, and finally, in the very end of August two of them came out. Finally!

So.... Here it is - a beautiful female. Though her wings have not spread enough, she is so impressive!
These wonderful creatures are so fragile... And so huge... And so beautiful! Even with broken wings. Don't you think so?

Attacus Atlas, Part I

Last Christmas my son wanted just one gift. And it was quite special. Attacus Atlas, the largest moths in the world. Just it! So... They came to our house only this year, in February. They looked just like this:

Pay It Forward 2011

This year I participate in one inspiring project - Pay it forward 2011. The project takes its place on Facebook and the rules are:
"I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They in turn must post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011."
So... All the five gifts are already sent!
And here is one of them - my work for Cristina Pacciani

I'm Back

I've been here long ago... Alas. This spring was quite a difficult one. With lots of events, lots of work, etc. New theory course - algorithms, flowcharts, Matlab.. Really time consuming work. My grandmother died on the 17th of March. My father is in the hospital for a month waiting for the operation - his heart... Just not enough time, not enough strength, not enough capability for the creative part of my life.  But.. The life must go on. Always. So - I'm back.

Don't Worry Be Happy ;)

Can you imagine? Bobby McFerring is coming to Lithuania! Just can't wait to hear him singing on the 1st of May here, in Kaunas Jazz Festival!
And here goes his old old song....

"In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy......"

More Arm Warmers and.... Stylish Blogger Award

Some more arm warmers: this time - warm, cozy, soft -G- version. And the earrings. With real vintage buttons that were found among my grandmother's "treasuries" :)




I have to tell that I had a huge surprise several days ago - I have been given the Stylish Blogger Award by Sandra Rosa, aka azuleterra!
Thank you sooooo much, Sandra! I love your work - absolutely! (You can check beautiful Sandra's jewelry and pottery at her Etsy shop )

The Stylish Blogger Award is passed from one blogger to another. It works just like this - you have to:
  • thank and link back to the person who awarded you;
  • share seven things about yourself;
  • pass this award to other 15 blogs you like;
  • contact these persons about the award.

So.... Seven things about myself...

  1. I love diversity. In everything. Even my education is quite a strange mix :)
  2. I don't know what is boredom, tedium or however you call this strange feeling.
  3. Felting is my passion and this passion grows constantly...
  4. I must confess - I have too much passions, and felting is not the only one :)
  5. I try to live slow. As much as I can.
  6. Neutral, earthy, natural colors are my favorites.
  7. And I'm definitely not a writer :)
And here are some very stylish blogs I love:
