Canvas bag

Since I carry this plain canvas bag around, I have many ideas how to decorate it. So I started with the simplest one - I made a  bow, add some lace and attached to the bag. Now I just have to buy more bags...

Earth day is here to remind us about importance of preserving our natural environment. This year´s theme "A Billion Acts of Green" should point that every little act of an individual is important contribution to that goal. Here´s 10 little things we can all do. Also, we should not forget to recycle, reuse and re-purpose when doing our craft projects.


Easter baskets

There are many ways to make paper Easter basket, but this time I decided to make it very simple. I used thick scrapbooking paper to make small, round baskets. Then, I decorated them with paper lace tape and paper flowers and put some painted eggs, chocolate eggs and small candies inside. It might be a good idea to hang them on the Easter tree.

An Exhibition

Two weeks ago I visited a philatelic exhibition named "Japan Philatelic Week". In addition to stamps, the exhibition hosted some origami artists, who displayed traditional as well as their own origami pieces. During the exhibition, a donations for Japan earthquake and tsunami victims were collected. Each donator received an origami crane in returm. The stamps and origami were beautiful, but, unfortunately, I didn´t take my camera, so to illustrate how beautiful Japanese stamps could be, I took some from Post Japan website:

Photos of origami displays belong to this lady. Her work is also displayed at the exhibition, and she is, by the way, a member of British Origami Society. 
Thank you, Sanja!

When I get home, I was inspired to make this origami basket.

Polka dots

I like polka dots on my mugs, pillows, underwear and even shoes. I like to store stuff in small round boxes. And, I just got an idea how to apply polka dot pattern on the boxes, easy way. All you need is to buy a sheet of circular labels in office supplies store in desired size and color (or, you can buy white ones and paint them in any color) and stick it to the box.

Here´s how to make it:

1. paint the box with acrylic paint
2. paint dots in desired color
3. place dots on the box
4. finish with mate varnish

Also, I made this birdie house with my little girl. We found the idea to make it out of wooden laundry clips in some old book, but I didn´t like the way the clips were assembled, so we made it our own way. We painted it in acrylic paint, stick the dots and, finally, put a birdie inside (who, I´m afraid, needs some improvement).

Some more polka-dotted stuff I like:

1. melamine popcorn bowl, Kaboodle
2. coffee mugs, Amazon
3. muffin paper cups, Splatcooking
4. paper plate, Platesandnapkins

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I´ve been following and admiring a lot of great blogs, and finally, I just managed to start mine.
I plan to post on all things that inspire me, from fashion to art, crafts, handmade, illustration, travel, interior design and a bit about my life in Zageb, Croatia. I also want to show off my little crafty projects. 
Also, I hope this blog will help me to join a community of relative thinkers.
I´ve chosen to write in English to reach out for more people, so please, forgive me for mistakes.
