New Year, New You {no, really :) }

Happy (relatively) new year! Yes we are already two months in but it’s still appropriate to wish y’all! This year, despite the lingering uncertainty that Covid-19 brings, has started well. New prospects, new ventures and new ideas are blossoming. I’m working on new interior design objects, travel plans that will hopefully kick off by the Fall, new skills and classes to master and fundraising efforts for both my labels.

My first yarn globe light project for the year. After watching several yarn globe making videos on Youtube, I combined a few methods and created this hanging lamp using acrylic yarn (160m long), PVA glue, corn starch and water. Came out better than expected. I have since started experimenting with different types of yarn and other materials.

My traveling plans include going back to Greece~starting with Athens and then to a few Islands including Santorini, Crete, Mykonos, Ionian islands and Meganisi. Then Croatia and Malta. I haven’t traveled in so long, especially on my own so I am going all out if I am able to get the chance (as in Covid is virtually non-existent).

The skills I would like to work on this year include coding and guitar playing :). Life is short, so I would like to get back to doing interesting things that are of value to me and others.

My blog posts will be a bit sporadic but I will strive to make them meaningful :). Thank you for taking this journey with me. Here’s to a fabulous rest of March!

  1. Hello exceptional blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a massive amount
    work? I’ve absolutely no expertise in coding but I was
    hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off topic however I simply wanted to ask.
    Thanks!

    1. Hello!

      Thank you for your comment and apologies for the late response. I didn’t get a notification for your message as I am still working on the blog and thought it was offline :/. To answer your questions, it depends on what the blog topic(s) are about. Some research and information gathering for blog posts can take you anywhere between 1hr – 5hrs at a time. Doing it through WordPress makes it simple and you wouldn’t need coding knowledge (although it does not hurt to learn coding eventually for some added expertise 馃檪 ). The advice I have (which I give to myself also) is research ahead of time for the blog post you wish to do, invest or make use of newsletter marketing to promote your blog and get subscribers/buyers for your pieces (if you are selling something that is) and keep it brief so readers are not scrolling for too long. I hope these help! I’ll be submitting some more blog posts soon so you can look out for those. Thanks for the support!

  2. I am really impressed together with your writing skills and also with
    the layout for your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to peer a
    nice blog like this one these days..

    1. Hello! Apologies for the delay in response, I was not getting notifications for some reason. Thank you for your compliments. Yes I did do the layout and came up with the material myself. I will working on more blog articles this year so you can look out for that in the near future. Thank you and have a blessed and prosperous new year!

  3. After I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    from now on every time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Cheers!

    1. Hello! Apologies for the late response. I believe you have to take the notification off from your end. It鈥檚 not controlled from my side as it鈥檚 a personal choice/selection.
