When you get a rich, red henna color stain, it’s supposed to symbolize love in your life. When brides get their bridal mehndi done, its best to sleep with the henna paste on the skin to ensure that deep red henna color. That red color is a traditional way to show the world how much her husband-to-be and in-laws love her. In life, I like to think of red always representing love because I try to only focus on the positive in life! <3 To spread positive vibes, here are some handmade items for you to enjoy that are just lovely
When I had my son, he loved to be held snuggly and close. This deep garnet red ring sling from BabyEtte is superwide for extra close snuggles (and security). I always preferred this sling design and I would suggest this one to any mom-to-be.. plus, how cute is this picture?!?
When we try to be more eco-friendly and walk to the farmer’s market, the store, post office etc. its always best to have the perfect backpack to put all your goodies in. That’s where ottobags come in! A sea foam-green waxed canvas bag with a perfect red strap accent is light enough to carry around everywhere but study enough to tote your special things.
Handmade red flower statement earrings by Sysimust are ideal to add a FABULOUS flair to your day! I just love the different mediums used : fabric, bronze and beads! What’s not to adore?
Glasshouse Designs brings us these cute beaded bobby pins that can take your simple, everyday hairstyle up a notch with incredible ease! Place this pins in your hair and you’ve amped up your look without taking a lot of time. .. because we can use all the extra time we can get.
Another great way to jazz up your everyday look is this rockabilly hair bow by Oh Honey Hush. The red and white striped design is just one of the dozens of designs available. I think I love them all.
This necklace by Dawning Light has a Moroccan henna design that is ornate and terrific. The design is really inspiring to me as a henna artist! Makes me want to get out a cone and do a detailed Moroccan pattern. She also added a “black diamond” bead to give it more drama.(and awesomeness)
A medium I have never been able to become skilled with is clay. I think we all have considered a clay hobby after that certain scene in Dirty Dancing *sigh*……… anyways….
I cannot form clay into anything other than a big squishy ball which makes me have a real admiration for very talented sculptors like Clay Lick Creek Pottery . This hand thrown bowl is made with red earthenware clay and dipped into a homemade majolica glaze. Its hand painted, glazed and fired in a kiln over and over until something like this perfect red poppy is created. wow..
Hope these red and lovely items fueled some creativity in your life today as they have in mine!
