Today however the sun is absent and the sky is really grey and gloomy, but I kind of like that sort of weather too. My plans for today are to sit inside and to be creative in small ways. I'm knotting classic childish friendship-bracelets and I'm loving it. It's so simple and you get cute jewelry almost instantly. I can't really wear normal jewelry because I use my arms so much and I can't stand having something hard or cold against my skin. I wish I could buy loads of earrings, necklaces and bracelets but it would be useless because I never wear them. What looks amazing on others feel like a costume on me. But friendship-bracelets are so soft and discreet that you almost don't notice that you´re wearing them until you see them on your arm and then they make you smile.
Of course the whole idea of them is to share them with others. Me and J share friendship-bracelets now, pale pink ones. He told me I can't make that color for anyone else since it's our color now. I find that very cute. Today I have three new colors to play with. Dirty yellow, greenish-brown and reddish-brown. Very autumn.
I can feel the stress and pressure from myself but also from reading too many "how to become a success on Etsy"-threads on forums and blogs. They are very good and useful, but it makes me feel as if I need to do a bunch of stuff very fast and work super-hard and I want to keep this feeling of creating for the sake of my own happiness, not for sales, comments or popularity. It's difficult though, since this world revolves around money in a sick and stupid way.. But let's not talk about that because it will make me even more stressed out.
