有关模板

最近总是看这个博客模板不顺眼,换了好几次。

终于折腾成现在这个样子,我想很长一段时间里不会改了。

这个模板让我最开心的是,可以把类别放在顶端像菜单一样,想看哪个主题点就可以了,不像以前都在旁边,总是看不到。

这个模板有一点不好,图片没法放很大,横边不能超过700,超过的部分就“咔嚓”截掉了,晕死。

我想每一个免费的模板,都会有这种那种的缺陷,然后大家终有一天会受不了然后就去付款定制一个了吧。

我看我能忍到什么时候……

Recent project: Dark Angel

 

Using Panchang Knot, I made this bracelet “Dark Angel”.

It’s only one black cord of about 2.5 meters. I sewed the beads on but later I realized it’s possible to add another thin cord to bead.

So this bracelet becomes my pilot study.

生活小轶事

常常用这里用作中国结的园地,都差点忘记其实自己的生活也该记录一点什么。

有一天偶尔翻到程先生说梦话那一篇,我们俩都笑得前仰后合,居然我们都忘记了这么有趣的事情。

看来年纪大了,有什么还是要写下来。

我要记下最近让我大笑不止的一件事。

某周日下午,我瞌睡虫袭来,爬到床上去想睡一会。

交代程先生把一碗红豆粥吃掉,因为是早饭剩下的就一小碗。

他喜欢吃甜的,于是就放了好多白糖进去粥里拌一下再吃。

结果……吃了一口,他就急匆匆奔到厨房去吐出来了。

我睡眼惺忪的看到他手里拿着的罐子……

是盐罐!!!!

我笑了肯定不止一分钟……

New etsy listing-Latte Art

https://www.etsy.com/listing/165435392/ebook-latte-art-a-tutorial-to-chinese?utm_source=OpenGraph&utm_medium=ConnectedShop&utm_campaign=Share

 

I thought this simple bracelet will not cost much time to make a tutorial.

But I was wrong.

I can’t afford a whole day to sit in in front of the computer to edit the pictures.

So just bit by bit I finish this tutorial.

It is great to make a new design at the first time. But when it comes to edit the tutorial, it’s just another story.

Now I can quite understand why Sherlock Holmes complains “Life is bored.” The unknown keeps my curious mind activated.

Anyway, life can never be perfect.

 

Chinese Knotting of Basic Level-Cross Knot

Here comes No. 7, Cross Knot. It has different facet on each side. On one side, it has a cross (picture on the right) but on the other, a square (picture on the left).

Here’s the tutorial:

I think I should shoot the pictures for this when I have time.

My project Chinese knot bracelet-lotus root

I don’t know why I keep thinking of lotus roots when I made this bracelet.

Sometimes I just want to make something as my thought flows. Never care about whether it can sell. Never care about whether others like the design. This is a problem for me since I started to commercialize my handmade things. I spent more time thinking how to boom the business but less time to create the nice little things I love.
