Something for myself and about finding my power again

As an artist I'm constantly working on some new design, art or simply sketching up ideas about future projects. During these years since I started my business I noticed that I hardly make anything for myself.

Recently I had an idea to crochet a granny square blanket just for me. I have no intention of selling it (strange feeling), and even though I can crochet I never ever made any sort of garment with this technique. And it's very likely that after this huge project will be done I'll not crochet for at least 20 years. ;)

But the feeling it gives me right now it's difficult to express. My living room needed some happy colours and I can't believe it's been in front of me daily and I only just realized that this is the change I was looking for. My Instagram feed is full of pretty crochet projects and I love looking at them so much. I'm the happiest person in the world right now, because I will soon have a beautiful blanket.

During this project I discovered something about myself. I kind of knew this before but seems like I forgot. It's that I really am able to do ANYTHING!

And here I'm not talking about my multi-talented self that starts all sorts of projects and enjoys them without limits, then can't decide which one to continue with. Which is very disturbing at times, but also satisfying as I never get bored. ;)

BUT, I'm talking about my abilities to create the life I desire, to make my dreams come true. I now feel it again that it is possible and I am determined to make it happen.

I'm not sure where I lost it. But I'm so glad I found it again.

Do you believe in your dream creating abilities? If your answer is "not yet", try to think of a project you would love to do but feels very scary to start. (I never thought I'd finish a granny blanket ever) And be determined to show it for yourself that you can do it! It will help you believe in yourself! Do let me know how you are getting on, I would love to hear about your success. :)


  1. This is a stunning creation and a very thought-provoking post...
    There truly is 'something' going on deeply inside our being when we create, isn't there? I can attest to, but can't always articulate, the wonderful thrill of discovering what I can do left-handed (having lost the use of my right side after my stroke 6 years ago). And I think the reason this year has been so exceptional for me has been my growing confidence in left-handed me... I no longer feel half a person (though the right side is still defunked!) Thank you for this, and you now have created a real family heirloom to treasure and enjoy :)

    1. Thanks so much for your comment Claire!
      That's wonderful that you started to feel confident about your left hand. :)
      Have a lovely weekend!
      Take care,

    2. Wow, those are certainly happy colours! How vibrant! My mother used to crochet me little waistcoats like this when I was very young - she kept one of them for me, and my daughter will be wearing it in a year or two. I do love your blanket, it's very uplifting :-D
