Longing….My Love, My Life, My Art

My Love, My Life, My Art

I long to write every single time I stop by my blog. And if it’s any help, I stop by every. single. day.

I think it gives me some sense of accomplishment that I haven’t given up on my dreams and that soon, I’ll be reunited with Koltureshoq again.

So, just so you know, I think about you everyday. Every. Single. Day.

All my love,


DIY Magazine Clutch Purse

Remember this clutch I made last year? Well, I just saw some pictures on my iPad and decided to give you guys a picture tutorial. Lazy me….hehehehe.


I had just ordered my first set of Mod Podge from Amazon and was so excited. Dug out my old clutch purse which I had mentally reserved for a makeover and did some Mod Podge Magic.

You’ll need:
An old clutch purse
Magazine with beautiful colored pictures (or not)
Mod Podge
Bristle or foam brushes

So here goes….







I had fun with this one and I hope you do too.

Hit me up in the comments section if you have a question. I’ll be more than willing to answer. And remember to share this post with your friends…thanks 😉

Have a great week guys.



What Happened This Week – My DIY Rope Bracelet Was Featured!

So I get a message from Amy @ Delineate Your Dwelling saying that my DIY Rope Bracelet was being featured from the Link It or Lump It link party. I was so elated! But I have not had the time of day to blog and so I decided to share this today. Here’s where I’m wearing my ‘I was featured’ badge proudly 🙂


Stop by the Amy’s spot to see the other projects that were featured and to see other awesome projects by so many creative folks.



The PINcentive Blog Hop: Week 16 (Koltureshoq is Featured!)

I feel like I’m on a magical adventure in blog land. My DIY Zipper and Chain was featured on the PINcentive Blog Hop this week which means that my project gets pinned 31 times by the pinners of the Pinterest Incentive Program as well as all those who are linking up this week. I also get to co-host the link party this week and get priority seating at the party. If that’s not a magic carpet ride, I don’t know what is.

I’m pretty new to link parties, much less how to co-host one. So I’ll hand you over to Elena to tell you how it works…..


Guess what?  We’re baaaaaaaaaaaaaccck!  Did you miss us?  We missed you!  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  Mostly, though, we hope you are ready to get your party on!
Welcome to the sixteenth week of the blog hop!  As always, a BIG THANK YOU is in order to everyone that has been linking up.  More so for making it EXTREMELY difficult for our co-hosts to choose winners each week and providing us with such great recipes, crafts, tips, parenting advice, tutorials, (you name it)!  Your content has truly been a pleasure to read, and it keeps getting better each week!

If this is your first time linking up; WELCOME!  I am extremely excited to provide this link up for you today and the opportunity for you to increase your traffic, followers, and improve your page rank!

Arm Candy Update + I Was Featured AGAIN! on Two It Yourself Link It or Lump It Link Party

Arm Candy by Koltureshoq 4

Here’s an update on my Arm Candy by Koltureshoq project. I totally love how they how they turned out. What do you think? I’d really love to hear from you.

In other not-really-related-but-certainly-relevant-and-exciting news.

I can hardly believe my luck. I’ve only been blogging a couple of months now (hope I don’t sound like a broken record already) and I’ve already been featured on the Two It Yourself Link It or Lump It Link Party. TWICE! Yup. I got a message from Melissa @ Two It Yourself saying that my DIY Zipper and Chain Bracelet was featured at the last link party.

It’s such a great feeling doing what you love and having people appreciate your work. And its such an honor to get the opportunity to link up with so many creative people through link parties such as the Two It Yourself Link It or Lump It Link Party.

The Two It Yourself Link It or Lump It Link Party is hosted by 3 awesome and creative geniuses – Melissa from Two It Yourself, Allison from Dream A Little Bigger and Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling. Please do well to drop by their blogs to see their really great projects and get inspiration to try out a few. By the way, my first feature was my DIY Seed Beads & Metal Necklace and I also proudly present my ‘I was featured’ badge (crowd screaming in delight…….lol).


Lots of love,


I was featured on Two It Yourself

I haven’t been able to stop saying that all day…….”I was featured on Two It Yourself”. I’ve only started blogging and my work, the DIY Seed Bead and Metal Necklace was one of those featured of all the wonderful, unbelievable projects by some really creative geniuses who linked up at the Two It Yourself link party. If that’s not an ego booster, I don’t know what is. I’m just so excited and encouraged, my fingers are just itching to have a go at another interesting project (apart from my Arm Candy by Koltureshoq project though). Here’s my official ‘I was featured’ badge;
