Hi guys! I haven't been around much lately, so I just wanted to write a quick message to all my friends in the blogger world. I hope you still remember me. :))
First of all, I would like to wish you a very happy New Year! May all your lovely dreams and plans come true! I would love to hear from you! What's new in your creative lives? Come, share some good news with me, I really need them. ;)
For past several months I've been going through some rough times in my personal life. Dealing with a loss of someone is never easy, especially if you have never actually given a chance to get to know them. It's been hard, but I'm trying to get myself together.
So, as you might have already noticed, I've decided to have a fresh start. I've arranged my workroom, given the blog a new look, scheduled an appointment with a hairdresser and finally made peace with myself. Time cures everything. I just need to give time time.

Hope you'll stick with me. The content of my bog might be a bit different from now on, as I still don't have much inspiration for beading. But I promise to share with you all the fun and useful things that I come across.

Much love from Finland,

Hi Jana! :)
It's nice to see you again!!!
Tough times in our lives are hard to get through... but we learn so many things about ourselves in the process, and in the end we emerge stronger and more mature.
BIG HUGS to you, dear Jana, and may it be a beautiful year for you, bringing you light, love, happiness and peace!!!

Turies, Janniņ! Prieks redzēt, ka sāc atkal darboties!

Anna, thank you so much, sweetie! I absolutely agree with you, I have learned so much about myself and the world around me over these past several months. It's so good to be back and to think positive again. xoxo

Ritiņ, mīļš paldies! xoxo

It was nice to see a post from you.

I have lost and grieved. I learned a few things. First, grieve as you must, cry when you need to, laugh when you can, yell and scream and have a fit at the world when nothing else will do... in time you will find your feet on a new path and the pain will dull and the love and those small joyful moments will be what you remember most.

The second and third thing I learned is: love is what matters not just who you love but who loves you.

Take your time. I for one will be here.

Hello Jana,

I am one of your Etsy fans and I was wondering why you didn't post new beautiful items... So I searched helmitarha in Google and I found you here.
I am deeply sorry for your loss. I, too, lost someone in september, and it was very difficult too because he was so young, and so distant in the last months, I kept thinking I could have done more. But we didn't see him change.
I think the most difficult part was to accept to get back to normal life. I didn't want to forget anything, I wanted to think about him every minute, but that's not how life should be. Like you, time helped me.
My heart is with you and I hope you will feel better soon.
I send you love from Paris, France !

Blandine, thank you for remembering me! It's so nice! And I am so sorry for your loss!
This year just has to be better than the last one!
Sending you all my love!
