Jewel box "Birch grove"

Finally I finished this box. I started it at summer and I was not sure about sides. Then I thought to paint them. I am not an artist but it seems I managed it well.

Summer creations. Part 2

These boxes were created at the summer. The temperature was about 40C. The varnish was drying quickly and leaving stripes at the top. But I won it and the top of boxes shines. See the second box below.

Plate "Girl with a duck toy"

I found this picture inside of my napkins. It's an old postcard I printed last Easter to decorate some cutting boards. There were three such pictures. I remember I coudn't turn them out. I spent two pictures for tests and one of them remained. I forgot it completely and I found it now. Suddenly I got an idea for a new plate. I inspired from another plate I saw during surfing the net.

Basket for cosmetics

A neighbour asked me to decorate this basket. She took it as a gift. It was completely white. She likes flowers and romantic style. I just tried it to not be so boring

Gift for my friend's birthday

My new friend is dancer. She had a birthday at June. The first idea I had was to decorate a plate with dancers. Then I thought it will be boring to take a gift with your job you do all day. I know she likes gardering and has got a lot of plants at her balcony. One day I visited IKEA and saw new watering cans they bring. I liked them. I bought one. The second problem was to choose a napkin for decorating. I spent about an hour or two to see all napkins I have. The result you can see below

Romantic candles

Last Easter I've decorated some candles by napkin technique for the first time. There were some eastern canles for my friends to go to the church that night. My friends loved them and said me that they had never got so beautiful eastern candles before. I was inspired and create some new candles. This time in romantic style

Plate with Rosine Weihtmeister's cats

I should to be honest I didn't like theese cats when I saw them at the first time. It was a small store at the city center where they sold porcelain cats by Rosine Weihtmeister. But now I understand the secret (if you've seen "The secret" movie). The more you hate something the more you think about it. And it takes your mind. Now I like cats of Rosine Weihtmeister. Wait for another creation in this style

Glass plate "Cat's family"

My son adores this plate. He took it to his room. He is afraid that I can sell it.

Another cock

Since I bought theese napkins with cocks they catch me. I decorated three objects with them and I don't want to stop. After creating two first cutting boards I remembered I have another one napkin with cock (from exchange with other crafters). So another cock started its walk.

Cutting board "Cock walks"

I am sorry for poor photography. I took him five minutes before selling with previous two cutting boards

Greek New Year

Greeks break a ripe pomegranate to a house threshold at the 1st of January. The more it reveal, the richer coming year will be. Therefore a pomegranate - one of symbols of New Year's celebrations in Greece.

I found some nice Christmas jewellery from Dana. See theese earrings. In her blog she shows new creations and books writing by herself
