So off to Athens and follow how Maria from HeartshapedCreations.etsy.com
spends her day. She, by the way creates the most cute polymer clay characters and she is open for custom orders too. Lovely (Christmas) gift ideas to your lovelies *wink wink*
A Sunny day in Athens
09:10 I’m still snoring under my bed’s covers as my sister is having way too much fun t
aking shots of me while I try to get up :-D
09:45 Hmmm… someone seems to enjoy his sleep a little longer! Meet Leo my Siamese
10:00 Ok! Now that everyone’s up, we’re getting ready to have breakfast.
I can’t say that we are “breakfast people” in my family,
which means that we usually have a very simple breakfast
(I know, not a very good way to start a day).
I usually have some cookies and a cup of coffee (what I usually call: “my fuel”!)
11:00 This is our balcony. I know the view is not the best (except from the flowers!),
but this is one –amongst many- of the drawbacks that living in a big city has.
I wish I could see some trees instead of the grey buildings across the street. Sigh…
11:30 After changing several sleeping spots in the house,
someone finally decided to wake up for good! Yaaaaaawn!
11:45 I head to the library to I check my emails and of course visit Etsy!
Yes, you can tell that I’m very happy when I’m in front of my pc :-D
12:45 Oh my, it’s already noon!
I gotta rush for my daily errands and then head downtown to get supplies.
Fortunately the centre of the city is not very far from my house
(if I don’t get stuck in the traffic that is!).
15:00 Pheww! Finally home! Here are some shots of Athens that I’d like to share with you
Also I found a surprise waiting for me in my room…
I’m super excited it finally arrived!!! Leo is happy as well and claimed the box already! :-D
I just love anything that has to do with fantasy art, fairies and magic. Is it obvious?!
15:30 I’m hungry as a wolf, so I’d better go and eat!
My lunch for today is spinach pie, salad and some olives. Yummy!!!
16:30 One of my favourites parts before I start creating is choosing what music I will be listening to.
This is the kind of music I’m generally fond of
But the music I listen to when crafting is far more different.
I tend to listen to the mesmerising and calming voice of Lorrenna McKennit
or the soothing music of bands like Secret Garden and Artesia.
He, he, he and this is me creating!
20:00 I usually get so caught up with making my little creations, that I don’t know when time passes.
A little pain on my back is the warning that I have to call it a day!
However, it’s the pain of creation so I could say
that it’s the sweetest discomfort I would ever think of! :-D
20:00 I drop by the internet again and snoop around in Etsy
and see what everybody has been up too.
22:00 Now it’s time to have my dinner and watch a dvd if the tv doesn’t have a decent movie
…hmmm which one should I choose?
24:00 Yaaaawn! I think it’s time for me to go to sleep.
Lights are out! Sweet dreams everyone!
