I ♡ Handmade

My favorite thing about Barcelona is all the unique handmade things you find all over.. all the little corners of handmade stores I run into and dieeeee of happiness when I'm inside! so pretty!! Another thing I love is that here I can find handmade workshops everywhere- amigurumi, knitting, embroidery, punch needle, stamp carving- you name it, they have it! ^^

On the weekend I discovered a cute little store on facebook.. so my bf and I went yesterday: I Love Kutchi store.. and OHH man.. it was lovely ♡ It inspired me a lot and I went home a very happy girl with a unicorn pin and a some lovely hair pins! :)

Sponsor Love ♡

My name is Gabriella! I'm 20, a history major, in her sophomore year. I dabble in all crafts, but actually stay afloat in needle crafts. In my shop I sell everything from extra supplies, to my creations, Which include everything from scarves, to hair bobbins! I plan on taking as many driving lessons as possible so I can get my license before school starts for me in January. I write about everything from music, to my latest fail/success, to my latest makeup tutorial. A Jackstress of all trades I write about whats important to me. My lifetime goal would be to get my phd in Ancient Civilizations and become head curator for the Smithsonian or the Cairo Museum of ancient history.
