Fimo-skulls

Fimo is the name of a german brand of polymer clay. It can be baked in the oven to have hard, lasting beads. Because I want to spin Artyarn occasionally, and because I took part in an artyarn add-on-swap, I made some fimo skulls. I have worked with fimo before, but that was when I was 15 or 16, and that was 20 years ago.

The material is strange, it's softer than natural clay, but it retains its consistency for a long, long time, one doesn't have to worry about the work drying out.

Most of the skull beads were sent off with the swap package, but I also kept some for myself.

There is even Fimo that glows in the dark!

And last but not least... in fact it's a real big change in my life... the neighbour of a friend of mine had saved a little kitty who was found motherless in the countryside. But it turned out she felt a bit overwhelmed with the constantly active wild kitty and looked for a new home for her.. now she's here with us and it's great to have a cat again!

And.. now comes the time when I quit smoking.. two years ago! This is a photo I took on the first day of my decision to quit.. I was the last day I smoked cigarettes.

I'm glad I did. The process isn't even over now.. I mean, I don't think about smoking or cigarettes now, they have become totally irrelevant for me. I have put on some weight and dropped it again.. I mean the process of redefining myself. I'm still not finished discovering the personality that's me - without the crutch of an addiction. Which is interesting, but not easy sometimes.

That's what I'm using my breath for now. And I have to learn to read sheet music. I can read some notes, and I can play some notes from the sheet, but not yet tell their name.
