Paper Craft

I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself lately. This is because I have had so many hobbies which I loved and was good at but never improved them. Some started when I was really young, at school like drawing. I was a good one in this according to people who saw my drawings, especially my art teachers. However, for some reason I seem to have been easily affected by outside inhibitors, who would say I am clever in school studies and should only focus on that. At that time I thought it was the right decision, but I know now that it never was.

Hobbies are what keep us sane. They drift us away from the daily busy routine, they are passion for a thing you are good at.

Anyway, I have done this lately and thought I would share it with you. I got the idea of the flowers a very long time ago. Unfortunately I can’t remember where I saw it. The photos are clear and shows what you need and the steps:

Asalamu aliakuam sis <3

Jazaki Allah for visiting me in my blog :D Very sweet of you, <3

You know? I've got some friends from Oman and they tell me that it's a beautiful country. My aunt also visited it and said that it was really nice, mashaAllah.

Anyways, this post was really bittersweet to me. I wish that you had been able to keep nurturing your hobby- it sounds to me that it was more than a hobby. Sounds like you were a growing talented artist.

But, I think you can STILl do it. I do! Don't give up yet, cause then in another 15 years, inshaAllah, you're gonna be like "man, I could have done it :("

Also, I like what you came up with! It's pwetty!
