Today we visit Sandra in Belgium. She creates gorgeous and unique jewelry, which you can see at zsazsazsu1963.etsy.com. Enjoy and happy Friday!
Hi I am Sandra and I spend about 4 days a week at the travelagency where I work since 25 years. The rest of my free time is shared with my family, 3 cats and lots of beads!
Around 6 o’clock I am jumping out of my bed. Days are already very short, so I like to make the most of it. Can’t leave the house without a shower and a daily hairwash.
I get up earlier then I should, just to be able to have a healthy breakfast, blog, read mails and when time is left, surf.
On working days you can find me from 9am till 6pm at the travelagency. Here we have the principle of "clean desk"... On these days I am the lucky one that goes and have lunch at my mothers home, she really spoils me with good food, every day.
On my day off at work I like to do the groceries, wash, iron, clean in the morning and spend the afternoon on creating, crocheting, knitting etc...
Creating jewelry can’t be done on a clean desk , I need it rather messy, that gives me the most of inspiration. I always have a real fan that needs a lot of attention, and sometimes really sits on the work I am working on. Say hello to Minou, the cat we brought home from our travel to the Provence.
My creations are made with beads, threads and materials out of nature.
I live the the Northsea so every now and then I take a walk to find some materials such as stones and driftwood at the shores.
Today I am making labels for my packaging out of shrinking paper.
Around 6pm I start making dinner. Try to make it healthy with lots of vegetables.
At the end of the day I love to sit in the couch, my 3 cats nearby and a crochet work. It’s a pity I don’t see very well, that’s why I wear 2 pairs of glasses.
I am an early riser, but I go to bed early too... around 9pm my eyes are getting heavy already.
