Who needs a colorless life ?
My name is Helena and would like to tell you a bit more about my passion for crafting.
I started quite early, as a little girl making stuff for my dolls then clothes for myself from Burda patterns which was tricky. Because I could only find them in German I had to figure out the instructions and I couldn't speak German at all.
As for sewing itself, i was taught by my grandmother using a Singer machine and this is how I found my passion for fabric.
Well, life went on...
I did a degree in International Relations (political branch). Though I don't regret my choice of studies I soon found that a whole working life confined to "a box" isn't what drives me in life!
I had a few full time jobs, met some nice people too but 'COLOR' was definitely always missing from my life.
From the moment I wake I'm always in search of COLOR...I need to see colourful buttons, fabrics, blogs...then I have breakfast which follows by making things,lots of colorful things.
So to keep my craftsanity it was while I was working full time that I decided to brand my craft work.
"Microbio" (Microbe) sounded perfect to me as it implies the spread of things, good things as mine are begnine, cute, made with love and care! Microbio is all about spreading color and fun :)
I've also started a blog sometime ago that its more of a digital notebook to me at this time as i don't have the time to keep it updated as i wished to ... and while i was venturing into this handmade world, making a bit of this and a bit of that, i discovered I LOVE making bags.
And it's funny you know, i began to realize that my bags have a distint modern retro style and i just love it.
I also like to go beyond fabric and experiment new (or recycled!), innovative materials to work with and exploring all the possibilities in bag making.
See why I really don't need a colorless life in an "office box" ?
What really drives me in life is being able to make beautiful things by my own hands, run a small business and have a simple life with perhaps less money but much happier and fulfilled.
