Last weekend I had the priviledge to participate in the Story Moja Hay Festival and right next to my stand was this amazing rhino :) Well not a real one but see for yourself :)
The most beautiful thing that happened in relation to the rhino was the translation children had of it. One said it was a tortoise while the most amazing was this little girl who held her white Cinderella dress high to avoid tripping and ran towards her brother pointing at the rhino shouting at the top of her voice, "NG'OMBE! NG'OMBE! NG'OMBE!" Translation: "A COW! A COW! A COW!" Bless her soul for placing a smile on my face :)))
The image shows smaller images with rhinos that have been killed... *sob* And the Kenyan blankie on it shows the Kenyan support in protecting the rhino.

While looking for accessory inspiration. I came across this video that just got me thinking about how creative one can get by pushing the limits and stretching out from the norm.
The artist responsible is Daniel Proulx who was born in Montreal and spent a considerable time traveling the world before returning to his artistic roots, becoming an independent artist in 2008. He has found great inspiration in the steam era and now makes Steampunk jewelry with metal wire, gemstones, vintage clock parts and other unusual components. He loves creating organic shapes from wire and developing intricate designs with a mechanical/industrial feel.
When Daniel was little he used to daydream about fantastic imaginary worlds. He would draw monsters, invent stories about magical items, or role-play with friends. Now he brings his art to life with stories from a distant parallel Steampunk universe. He uses his creations to share his passion for the world of Steampunk with the rest of us.
