Fale sempre a verdade, mesmo que isso o leve a morte ..... proteja os indefesos que não podem defender-se por si ..... não cometa erros ... ame as pequenas criaturas de Deus em forma de animais, são pequenos anjos" ..... (São Francisco de Assis)

 

Temos muito o que aprender com estes seres especiais, para começar Perdão e Amor incondicional. "Os animais dividem conosco o privilégio de terem uma alma". (Pitágoras)

3D Decoupage

One of my very first hobbies that I made was decoupage.
Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluingcolored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects,gold leaf and so on. Commonly an object like a small box, ostrich eggs or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers. Each layer is sealed with varnishes (often multiple coats) until the "stuck on" appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work. The traditional technique used 30-40 layers of varnish which were then sanded to a polished finish. This was known in 18th century England as The Art of Japanning after its presumed origins. 




Reborn Dolls

The craft of making reborn dolls was started in the United States in the 1990s. A reborn doll is a transformed vinyl play doll which looks exactly like a human child. The cost of one reborn doll runs into hundreds and thousands of euros, depending upon the craftsmanship put into it. The dolltakes days or even weeks to create . I order all my dolls and paints etc from América. Making reborn dolls for me is an extension to my collection of porcelain dolls that I also made. 

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
