I drew this back when I was about 12years old to try describing how I felt. This was my intake on pain as I felt it. I found it while going through some pictures and papers.
Wedding Cake Topper
A couple of my friends are getting married soon and they asked me to make their cake topper. I was overjoyed and gladly accepted, even more so since I won't be present at their wedding and it truly saddens me. It was the first time I ever made anything like this and I am quite happy with how it turned out. :)
I heard from my friends today and they said they liked it, so I am relieved and happier than I've been in weeks. :)

The long chair was made with wood, the figurines with polymer clay and micro beads, the groom's hat was made with jute.
Chair Makeover
I inherited that chair from my grandfather when he passed eleven days ago. For as long as I can remember, that chair has always been in my grandparents' living room.
My grandfather was an upholster. Let me explain some of the process I went through.

That is what it looked like when I inherited it. Grandpa had covered it with that pink velvet to fit the look in my grandparents' living room back in the 90's. I removed that velvet to see what was underneath, because I remembered it to be another color. Mom and i think he also redid it back then because he missed working as a professional upholster.

Yep, I was right, it was indeed another color...and another shape entirely. Grandpa had changed the curve with some sort of cotton balls. It worked, but I really want to keep that awesome shape...but not the original color!

My bedroom furniture was painted that deep gray (which was named Penguin Back) and that turquoise-ish color (which doesn't look the same on the picture than it does in real life) is my accent color for my room. I took out the upholstery tools I inherited from grandpa and worked really hard to redo that chair. It was the very first time I attempted anything like that and, I must say, I am thrilled with how it turned out! The fabric's a nice velvet, in case you wonder what I used.

As I worked, I kept wondering if my beloved grandpa would be proud of me or not... What do you think?

That picture of me there shows me as a 3 year old (maybe a little younger even) who doesn't want to sleep and wants to do craft! I began pretty young! lol

What you need to know about me is that I'm in love with anything miniature! I love writing also! Love soundtracks and Viggo Mortensen's work (not only his acting, but his poems and photographs).

Favorite movies are; LOTR trilogy, Dune, Restoration (with Robert Downey Jr, a must see)!
Yesterday, another big part of us has passed away. My grandfather, my mother's father and our guardian angel for so long, has departed. One year and two months after his wife, my grandmother, my grandfather fell in his room at the retiring home, broke his hipbone. The very next day he was gone. You have to know it was discovered at the hospital that he also had pneumonia and influenza.
He will be sorely missed by my mother, my sister and myself. The Patriarch of our small family has gone forever. Rest in Peace grandpa! I love you! <3
