I FEEL GOOD!

A new day and a new experience: My first blogging and I am very excited. I have to thank to my friends from European Street Team (EST) of Etsy; since if the weekly challenge did not exist, I would not be here.
Last week's challenge theme was Native Tribes by Psarokokalo. I crocheted a tribal bracelet and I was declared as winner of the week. The real thing began after this: now I'm responsible for the new theme during a week and I hope my friends will enjoy both the challenge theme and to be hosted by me (Ebru) in Febystan.
Challenge theme of the week : BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD*
*Personal and no limits for your memories, feelings and unforgettable moments
and now the Challenge Theme Items (CTI) from my friends :

Pink and Blue Elephant Necklace by kraplap

















"This necklace is inspired by several aspects of my childhood: buttons, colours and elephants. The buttons I got from my grandmother who kept hundreds of them in a big box that I was parked with on Sunday afternoons to keep me under control. Colours have always fascinated me, as they do so many other children; I like them in a wide range of different nuances like in this item, and other times also in a more subtle combination. Elephants played an important role in my life because when the button box did not feature in the afternoon, we would often visit the local zoo, and the elephants there never failed to impress me with their gentle yet massive stature." kraplap
*******

"One of the memories which stay with me all the time is how my dad patiently made endless origami creations for me, I was very exciting, well to see him making those lovely tulips, balls, frogs, swan you name it! As long as he have the book in front of him he can made everything I want:)Now, he stop making those origami for me but continue to make them for my daughter who love them very much too." iragrant
