Dance is taking over my life! For the next ten days I will be dancing a minimum of an hour a day, usually more. So, this is just to say that I probably won't be able to post much. But I promise to take lots of pictures and do a very big post about my lengthy week once it's all over okay?

This is my bosom friend Kristen, I thought I would introduce you and also show you what the top of the mazurka costumes look like. There will be better pictures eventually, would you mind if some time this week I just post some dance pictures and a tiny bit of words? I might be able to manage that.
I've been working on fixing up some clothes, here's one of my most recent completed projects, I just added the little collar/trim. Right now I'm hoping to finish up a nice backpack style bag, I carry so much stuff around that my typical hobo style purses are really messing my back and neck up, so hopefully my the backpack will fix that problem.

Christmas is coming too! This Saturday I'm going to watch the Nutcracker and I can hardly wait, I haven't seen it for seven years and I now that I know so much more about ballet I feel like I'll appreciate it better too. Eight years ago I was in it as a little elf at the beginning, I had so much fun. Well I really want to post this tonight because I won't have another chance for quite a while. So I hope you all have a marvelous weekend I love you all and will hopefully be back next week.

Eskimo kisses,

Clara :)
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog post. I was having an extremely hard time and your words were a comfort that no amount of realism could have provided. It means so much to me, thank you, you are an angel! :)

Your post reminds me so much of this chapter from A Little Princess, 'She had been learning a new, delightful dance in which she had been skimming and flying around in the room, like a large butterfly...'

You are so lucky to be able to dance, it is such an elegant past-time. Is 'masurka' something specific to where you live? I'm not sure it's done in Britain. :)

Anyway, I do hope your Advent is absolutely lovely and sparkle-filled!

much, much love,

That sounds like a lot of fun! I've never been a dancer but I like watching other people. :)

I like the collar/trim on your shirt! That's so cool that you can do that.

you get to be in the Nutcracker, how lucky! I so wish I could be, but they stopped doing it where I dance...
My favorite winter was when I got to dance the Arabian coffee part in the Land of Sweets- do you know that one?

also, sorry, abrupt question: what kind of pointe shoes do you use?
