Ef Zin In My Hands

Efzin in my hands by ioanna papanikolaou CSC_1149

I think I’ve made thousand of outfits with this small cute cross made by EfzinCreations. You can see them all in my Polyvore page. I have this romantic view about handmade items; that they carry a piece of their creator inside. And, Zina confirms that with the best way as she is one of the amazing people I had the chance to meet through blogging. Reading her blog and following her crafts and DIY tutorials, it was easy to fall in love in many of her creations, not to say all of them. So, I use these small items not only because they are pretty cute, but they also carry the energy of their creator: generous, joyful and gentle. Moreover, they have this magic name that in ancient Greek means well-being, to live (“ζην<ζω”) well (“ευ”).


Last Friday was my birthday and this was the small gift to myself. I can’t resist not mentioning the random symbolism it creates. There is no better wish than this I think; to live well. And, it’s a pity that this photograph can’t carry the sound of this moment. To hear the laugh of my four-year-old boy when I was photographing his hands. It’s a miracle that I succeeded one clear photo.
