(Re-)Apprende Français

Bonjour Chéries,

I'm currently planning to go back to university in february and finish my studies, and in order to be finally fluent in french (such a beautiful language), I decided to attend a college in the french-speaking part of Switzerland.
And as a preparation, I'm re-learning French now. See, I had 8 years of French classes during my school career, so it's almost embarrassing to say that I'm nowhere near speaking it fluently. Reading is fine, but I just don't use it enough to be able to express myself. But I thought, hey, learning languages can actually be fun too!
So now I'm reading Harry Potter and watching The Addams Family, both in French.

I made also a new decoration for the kitchen table. Winter is approaching fast, and so is Advent. We had these three blue candles lying around at home, so I thought I'd build something nice around it. I love candles in the winter time!
But man, was it hard to find something to match! I like silver better with blue, but the whole Christmas decorations that are sold now seemed to be golden (>.<)
But I'm quite happy with the result:

Isn't the deer adorable?
Lately, I've been quite addicted to deer, stag, reindeer, moose, fawn... you know, these animals living in the woods, sometimes with antlers, sometimes with cute white dots. I couldn't tell all the differences between the various species, but I still love them!

Snow is coming! Can't wait!

Sewing & Sewing

Hi dolls!

In the past few days, I've been sewing a lot, mostly for my etsy shop, Medusa Couture.
As I design what I like best (obviously), I wouldn't mind to wear the clothes by myself... so I'd like to show you what I've been making so far:

Princesse jsk in black (more pictures)

Princesse jsk in lavender (more pictures)

Poppy skirt in black/pink (more pictures)

I hope you like it! (^.^)
There are some Lolita events coming up, so maybe I'll sew something new for that... we'll see!

So You Think You Can Sew?

Hi dolls,

I can finally make the big announcement I've been looking forward to for quite some time (^.^).

I opened my own etsy shop! It's called Medusa Couture and you can find it here.

As I've always wanted to be a fashion designer, I decided to become a wanna-be fashion designer.
No, seriously, I've dreamed about this for a long time and thought, I'd finally make a step and try it. I'll be selling some accessoires, but mostly I'll focus on Lolita clothing, such as dresses and skirts.
I hope my designs will be appreciated, as all the items are handmade with love. Each item is unique or produced in a very small edition.
I would be honoured if you would follow me on the facebook page or on the Medusa Couture blog.

By the way, the artwork is made by the amazing Meri from Tentaclething!
