Gypsy Dreams

Hello and Welcome!  If you’ve stumbled here by chance, this Gypsy Dreams Blog Party originated here.  Thank you to Celia for organizing this event!

My Gypsy Dreams started a long time ago when I was a little girl.  I’ve always had a love of travel, forests, and handmade goods.  And I have a restless spirit.  I love to make things, too.  I make costumes just about every year for people going to the local renaissance festival.  One of my dreams would be to travel with a fair.  Anyway…

I’m not particularly good at drawing, but I drew a picture of what I would want my vardo to look like…

I also love music.(it’s playing in the background if you didn’t notice already)  Another dream of mine is to return to belly dancing.  I started to learn how a few years ago, but I didn’t get very far, so I’d really like to go back to it.

I just have a couple more things to show you.  I made this card recently and I just felt like she was waiting for this party.:)

She’s from Sassy Studio Designs.

And here are a couple of bracelets I made…

If you like them you can enter below with the inlinkz thingy for a chance to have one.  I’ll use random.org to draw two winners for them.  (bracelets are approx. 7 1/2 inches long)  Just put a 1 by your name if you want the left one, or a 2 by your name if you want the right one.:)

Sorry I didn’t have more to show you.  I’ve been a bit under the weather recently. 

Thank you for stopping by and letting me share some of my dreams with you!

hugs,

Laura
