Things I have made!

Hello everyone!
I know I have not been a very good blogger lately but unfortunately there is too much to be done and the end of May and June are the worst as far as work is concerned.
Today, June the 3rd, I must say that many of my school work obligations are over. I handed in my grades, I handed in my self-evaluation school unit reports, I have also finished the University Students Practice and their evaluation. So now there are only a couple of days left teaching till the 15th and it is fun especially with the younger pupils who are now learning everything in the summer holidays and the sea themes.And we teachers will be going to school till the 21st!For the last time!Because from next year we will be going to school till the 30th June!!!!But that's another story!
On the other hand we are still having the anxiety of my son's Entrance University exams which are till the 21st and some more last minute Drama Club performances on the 15th, 18th and 19th.
And of course the preparation for our dream trip this July is in its final steps. So you can imagine how busy I am.
Still the last couple of months I have made a couple of handmade things so I thought of showing them to you.
First a stone that my dear friend Dawn in the States wanted.Here's the stone along with some olive oil soap and some Greek beach finds for her!
Then two purple stones. I made one for my friend Stella of StellaCreations who wanted one.And the other was the one won at a giveaway by Evdokia of have a ko(o)kie blog.
Then a red one for Mary, my Drama Club friend.
Then I made this sea glass pendant for Nopi.
I also made this red bead and wooden pendant for my friend Evi.
I have also been making masks for the roleplay of my 3rd Graders.The cricket and the ant is this pair and I have made lots more!
This blue sea glass felted stone of mine was won by a lady on Mykonos island who didn't even bother to thank me for winning it. She hasn't even told me that she received it. I posted it registered.She won it in another blog whose blogger asked me to cooperate and make a gift for her readers to win and that would be advertising for me! I obliged. I sent the gift but no news!Disappointing!
These too are other little gifts I made. The lego cross stitch brooch was for Julocka in Denmark. She blogs on moments of perfect clarity and I really like her blog.It was a thank you gift for her generosity to send me a lovely lego mermaid some time ago!The pattern was free on the net.

Then I made this birthday gift for my friend Christina of the egst. She loves anything Japanese and so I made this keyring, again from a free cross stitch pattern on the net.Christina has a lovely shop on etsy celdeconail.

I also made this felted stone as a gift for my friend Dora who lives in Mytilene.
And this as a gift for my handicraft teacher Maria, at the handicraft course at the local library last year.
And this last one as a goodbye gift for my colleague Yioula who is retiring! Of course Barca wanted to see it.

I also made these two bead pendants for the two University students who did their practice with me to have something to remember me with.

I have also been cross stitching like crazy for gifts for my trip meetings but those won't be shown till after the trip!

If I ever won one of your pieces of art I would make sure that as soon as I recieved it I would thank you for it. some people don't realize what it takes to sit down and make something special for someone and not a thank you. That's just plain rude. Hugs from Lynda

Oh my gosh, you have indeed been really busy!!! My favourites are the pieces made for Dora & Maria. They are beautiful :) It's not nice to not have heard from the winner of the giveaway. The list that she could have done is acknowledge receipt & send her thanks... Well done, these little gems are pure work of art xxx

Such beautiful things you make! I too dream of the sea when I look at your photos. I have never been to Greece, but I would love to go there (and also Italy), Maybe I will get touch the sea at the end of Summer when I go to visit my family.

I am ooohhhing and aaahhhing over all of the felted stones with shells and sea glass. I love your beautiful creations my friend! They are each one so unique and wonderful. I appreciate your information on the black sea glass we found. I looked up more online and it was so interesting...a rare find as it turns out! I'm catching up on your blog today. Somehow you have not been updating on my favorites list but I have re entered your blog. I don't want to miss another post! Happy weekend! Hugs!
