Cruise Dress Scuptures

I really didn't post about the cruise I recently took with hubby during the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.   The cruise was shorten by three days because the ship, The Allure of the Seas, stayed out of harms way in the ocean for three extra days for the safety of the passengers that were already on board. Our itinerary was also changed to a destination we had been to many times before - Nassau.  We enjoy cruising and try to take advantage of any opportunity to cruise that comes our way.   But I must say, those four days were very relaxing and the ship, and everything about it, became the nicest cruise we have ever been on. The Allure of the Seas can hold six thousand passengers, but there were only a little less than two thousand on board with more crew members than passengers for this cruise. It was as if we were the only ones there at times. What luck!

I won't bore you with pictures of our adventure, but as a craft blogger I do want to share with you this extraordinary artwork that was on the ship. Nestled in the aft glass elevator shaft starting on the lower deck level and expanding up to the seventeenth deck where our loft suite was located were 34 floating dress sculpture forms of paper-wrapped wire and crystal beadwork.

Absolutely amazing and very impressive! 

The artwork, titled "Dreams of Utopia," belongs to a Korean artist by the name of Keysook Geum, a very creative and talented lady, indeed!

I think if I could knit or crochet, I would try to create something like this!
Ha!  That's wishful thinking!

Our next cruise is already booked for the original destinations. Here's hoping for another inspiring adventure!

Thanks for stopping by
and take a little time to enjoy,

Happy Crafting!


  1. These are absolutely stunning! I am sure they were much better in person. I love that this was on your cruise ship. I don't think I would have spent much time anywhere else. I could look at art work all day, especially this kind of art meaning girly Is this a carnival cruise ship? What was your original destination? I will have to check into this one. Hubby loves going on cruises. I would just rather get to my destination by flying but I love the thrill of the ships as well. We generally take ours in late January or early February to avoid the hurricane season. I really love that time of year as the heat isn't as intense and there are less people too.

    1. Thanks McGypsy9! It was a Royal Caribbean cruise ship and we were suppose to go to Cozumel, Jamaica and Haiti. We've been to those places before but I wanted to do the zip line over the water in Haiti. It looks like so much fun! We usually go in December, January or February, too, but the prices were unreal for a suite and the hurricanes have not been as bad before this year. Luckily, the cruise line gave enough credit for another cruise and more!

  2. WOW! How stunning those dresses are! So very pretty. I would love to hear about your cruise. Hugs and blessings to you. Cindy

    1. Thanks so much, Cindy! Maybe I'll write about the next one we take in December.

  3. So sorry to hear about your cruise being cut short. It is better that way, to keep everyone safe. Sometimes Mother Nature is unpredictable and one must be aware. Those dresses are gorgeous. I am so glad you shared these creative beautiful dresses. Here's to another wonderful cruise and complete calm.
