Green fun - Urban jungle bloggers

I'm a big plant lover. All the kind of plants: succulents, flowers, trees, veggies, soil, it's all so very mine. So straight away after discovering I joined an amuzing Urban Jungle Bloggers community.

Founded by Judith and Igor Urban Jungles Bloggers proposes a monthly topic and you can post on the theme or not - something very relaxed, just for me! They also blog about everything plants related 

February topic is hanging planters!

So I made a shoot to my handmade hanging ceramic planters! (I had to wash the window for the occasion lol) *BLUSHING*






hello there! :)

January

January was beautiful first of all because I had my holidays at work!
*I planned some travels which happend and everything went    smoothly.
*I travelled to Frankfurt to visit a friend, but about this travel I'll     tell more in the next blog post.
*Later, I went to Barcelona and joined KeumBoo workshop      (attaching pure gold to silver) at Arnald Climent  jewelry school.   I was pleased so much to know Arnald in person!
*I spent time with a very special friend who took me to Sebasiao    Salgado photography exhibition.
   After my trips I felt renewed and inspired by my friends and      events.
*I worked in the studio on both pottery and silversmith projects.
*I had to prepare pieces for KeumBoo workshop thing that forced me to start sawing metal. I had all the instruments already but couldn't find a rigth moment to start (sincerely I didn't feel comfortable to go out of my confort zone, but finally did it!). I made some exciting to me pieces, then finished with gold.
*I prepared and tested some glazes. 
*I made a plan for the month for my pottery projects which I didn't complete, but I'll catch up in February.
*I met with friends and more friends and I spent more time with my kids!
*I enjoyed cooking a lot yummy food for my family and friends



Studio time - wheelthrowng, trying new clay body

Veeeery exciting - I joined Keum-Boo workshop at Kum Boo silversmith school in Barcelona

We had much fun! :)
I was happy to meet  Eva and Mercè (two ladies on my right side) who were so sweet and also made very beautiful organic pieces. 
Arnald was so friendly, I wouldn't mind to join another workshop with him one day! Here is Kum Boo school web page  and Arnald's page.
