  1. silk painting is an idea but from your list this time there isn't one that really stand out for me ( perhaps it's too hot to think crafting)

    1. It's not just you, my dear! In this heat picking up my knitting needles (or generally attempting anything crafty) would also give me heat stroke.

  2. The origami jewelry is gorgeous! I've tried to do some folding, but I'm not very good at it, still it's a fantastic idea for jewelry!

    1. It looks beautiful, doesn't it? And I'm not really good with origami myself - I once tried to fold a frog which is pretty much the easiest animal to do, but it looked like a truck had run over it.
