Maybe you'll be nearby and like to visit …?!?

Have a wonderful relaxing weekend,

PEtra *extremely happy*


During last week I had a training for my volunteering and enjoyed all the new insights ... I felt close to myself and thought "... this is what you are...".

I also had some new experiences in the dark while most of the city was sleeping. We had full moon and I decided to take a walk in the park ... let the dog stroll around and my mind wander. I was thrilled and scared about the unknown ... the strength I got to stretch myself ... and felt "... close to you ...".

You are invited to celebrate a beautiful period in my life ...!



I know where I want to go ... but how do I get there ...?!

I've noticed that sometimes when I feel creatively lost, I'm on my way to discover something good, something new, something different ... just to believe in myself is the tricky part ...

I tell myself to keep moving, keep my eyes open ... although fear is kissing me ... hoping that it will push me ... in order to grow.

Today is my first post here ... I feel a bit lost ... but hopefully you guys will find me here in OuTeRsPaCe ... and drop me a line from time to time ... as it would make me really happy ...

I decided to share a special bead with you called "PSYCHOTIC.BRAINCRASHER". When I created it in October 2007 I felt creatively lost ...

Today you can find it in the permanent glass exhibition: Musée d'Opale-Sud (France).

It's also on the cover of the latest issue of "The Glass Bead" - a magazine of the ISGB - which features an artist's spotlight of me.

OK --- ... I better get going ...

Thanks, for being around & don't forget to believe in yourself ...!
