First Anniversary!!! Whoa!

So exciting! ❀

I can’t believe that it has been a year since I have opened my first “New Post” page and written an intro into something I knew then it would last. I had that feeling of “everything is ready”. πŸ™‚

My mother called me Ivančica (Daisy) when I was a kid πŸ™‚ It is strange that there is no translation for “Tratinčica” (my sister nickname), those are the same flower except daisy is bigger and has bigger flowers – like i was the older sister.

In past I had two blogs, but both were for the sole purpose of passing my exams on college and I have never thought of having a blog, let alone writing on English!

It just clicked together, I just knew I wanted to share and make, and just “go with the flow”… But something happened when I started blogging.

I discovered my love for photography. I saw how much of a truly creative person I am… You think I would know, but I didn’t! I guess putting it black on white made it easier for me to realize it.

I discovered that I like experimenting with food! (Something everyone was surprised/ shocked about. πŸ˜€ ) I pull together courage and showed a little poet that I know is in me. But, I didn’t expect this…this community, this connections I made… Connections that really filled me up with happiness, that were very important to me a couple of times… I am so glad I chose WordPress and not local blogging site, because I was am able to spread my wings across the whole world… There is a sense of sweet freedom in that thought. πŸ™‚ I also become aware of “agenda” and “numbers” and “followers”, “views”. I still claim that I don’t care about boosting my numbers, but of course that I care about being read, about you who comment and make my day, about my little baby blog being viewed a lot…

Thank you! For being here, reading, commenting, sharing, inspiring me and letting me inspire you… Giving me awards what made me very proud. πŸ™‚ I got a lot of more stuff in store for this part of my life I can’t imagine my life without now. Weird, right?

I didn’t know where this journey of mine is going to take me, but ironically, by sharing and opening up to the world I got to know myself better…

Also, if you would like to browse through my post history, except for the Random Post Bob you have a Calendar in the sidebar with all my posts marked, you can get lost if you want or maybe check out what did I write before you followed me. πŸ™‚

Makin’ it on my own

It is not a long ago I realised I was very creative. I mean, I knew it, but never act on it.

I blamed the lack of time, the situation.. I haven’t really thought about it. And then, when I made a decision at first in no correlation to my creativity and self-expression – it happened.

I wanted to learn how to sew, on a sewing machine. So I did.

I wanted to learn how to make stuff. So I did.

I wanted to take photographs. So I did. And they turned out pretty great.

I wanted to open a blog. So I did. πŸ™‚

I think I am more aware of the power of my will and ideas than I were a year ago. Screw it, less than a year ago. I am learning, as I said in my “About page”, we all learn our entire lives. I am learning more technical stuff about photography, I am learning more technical stuff about blogging platform and internet coding… But the most important thing is, that I want to learn those things and I study them when I feel like to. No pressure is the key.

There are many things I want to learn and experience… Maybe today is not the day I make that happen, but I can promise you that that day will come. πŸ™‚

I invite you to surf a little through my “Do It Yourself” category to see what I sew and made from different materials so far. Some things are not on blog yet, but they will be.

Enjoy your day, and don’t let no worry get you away from feeling ok. ❀
