me and my mom
“It all began almost ten years ago, when concerts and festivals became my favorite pastime. Marketplaces where handmade products were sold, mainly dream catchers, were common there. I fell in love with these decorations, found them interesting and fun. I really wanted to have a dream catcher in my bedroom to give it a bohemian vibe.
My mother always surprised me with her creativity and talent for handicrafts. She is versatile: she sews, paints, crochets, she can literally create something out of nothing! So I told her about this mystical dream catcher: a wooden or metal hoop, a filling with a fancy pattern, and the beautiful decorations that makes the dream catcher so special – strings, lace, beads, feathers… She liked the idea so much that she immediately started to work. She came up with a crocheted filling. And she was right! When the hoop was ready, I decorated the dream catcher with the materials we already had at home. It decorated my bedroom. Our guests liked it a lot, they also wanted their own dream catcher. We gave it as a gift to family and friends, which always turned out to be a great gift.
Now we continue our work, it’s something that connects us, despite such a huge distance – a common hobby that makes us stay together all the time. Even though I live in London now”.
