Friday is my day: Fattidame

Hello dear fellows! Happy New Year to all of you :) We are back (so sorry about last week's missed post, I am sure I put it somewhere :D) with a fresh series of European Artists sharing their Fridays. Today we start the New Year with Paola from Alessandria, Italy once more. We love this country :) Enjoy!

Hello! I’m Paola from Fattidame!

Giorgio the octopus

I live with my soulmate Filippo and our three terrible cats in a nice village north of Italy. We live in the countryside, not far from the town Alessandria. I’m very lucky because I work at home for my husband's building enterprise and I can deal with my etsy shop part time! Now here is my typical Friday... 

It’s time to wake up! The alarm rings at 7:30 a.m and for me is always a blow...

But three hungry wild animals are waiting in the kitchen for their breakfast ;) They are Natalino, Chicca and Virgola. If I want  to have my breakfast, I must feed them before it!!

My husband’s already at work, so I get my breakfast alone with a cup of “lattee caffè” and some biscuits. I try to organize my day, but I’d like the day to last 48 hours ;)

It’s time to go to the office... It is not a long way, I just go up in the attic of my house and dive into the paperwork ;)

I prepare lunch for me and Filippo. Just a plate of pasta, some vegetables and a good coffee. We talk about work, but also about our day. Then Filippo goes back to work.

After lunch I can spend a couple of hours on my pc! I check my on-line etsy shop, blog, emails, I think about some new ideas for my shop and I draw inspiration from my puppies sleeping all day!
If It’s a sunny day I can take pictures of my new items.

Almost every day, I go for walking in the countryside near my home. I love this moment because walking makes my body feel good, but above all my mind. I love to walk near nature!

After a warm shower I take out my sewing box, threads, needles, fabrics and I watch what is being born from my hands and my creative mess! It’s always a surprise: A camel, a mouse, a cat, a dog or a pig...

It’s time for cooking! Filippo arrives at home and while I’m cooking we talk about our day.
After supper we watch a film, read a magazine or a book.

But the bed calls me... another day is over.
So Good Night!

Thank you Paola! As for all of you lovely readers stay tunned for our next week's guest!
Until then, have a great weekend and be creative :)
