Some Updates

Hello lovely people!

First of all, I want to apologize to my blogging friends for not commenting on their blog posts enough (if at all). My Internet activities came down to my Etsy shop and a bit of Facebook. That is all I can do right now. It’s because I have no patience for long reads, or any reading except books, because I am ill. I have Cervical Cancer. I found about that around Christmas and since then my life has turned up side down. There have been days of despair and sobbing, but most of the time I have been and I am ok. Right now I am waiting for the treatment to start, Chemo and Radiation therapy, which should be in about a week. Yay. 😦

But, I have to do what I have to do and life goes on. I, thankfully, have a ton of things to do and a ton of things to make, I have been busy with my shop, and most importantly, I have my wonderful supporting husband and our two dogs to make me smile every day.

So that is why I wanted to apologize to you my friends, I am thinking of you, I hope you won’t forget me, I just need to go through all this the best way I can and know how, and hopefully I will be able to welcome Spring Cancer free and with a smile on my face.

But enough about that crap. Here is what I’ve been doing lately.

My studio is jam packed with all kinds of materials and supplies! I have been hording things for years, and even though I work and create and make all kinds of things, I still buy yarn and fabrics and paint, I still get things from people, things they don’t want and I DO want, I still recycle (even more), and I simply don’t have enough space for all those fabulous materials. That is why I decided to offer some of my treasures to other people so that they can use them and make fabulous creations with them. 🙂 Here are the kits that are in my shop (and I have many more prepared ).

The Black and White kit:


You have the link above in the name of the kit, so I won’t explain the contents here, I will just say that I construct all my kits with great care, I try to make them big and filled with different things that buyers can use in several projects.

I also have a Blue and Green Kit in the shop:


Again, a ton of things to play with!

There is also a Valentines Kit:


Then this great Masculine Kit:


You can’t see very well in these photos, but there are so many vintage pieces in these kits, some great papers, old or vintage embellishments, book pages, fabrics, yarn, I mean, I love them! I already decided that if they don’t sell for some reason, I will use them as they are and make some fabulous journals and small bags, tags, oh so many things!

Ok. I got a bit distracted. 🙂

There are also some smaller supplies/kits:

My Handmade Paper:


Then another type of Handmade Paper:


A small Blue/Green Embellishment kit:


Small Red Embellishment Kit:


And this lovely Pink and White Small Kit:


This one was recently sold:


As well as this kit:


But there is so much more! I have more kits to add to my shop, but let me show you this gorgeous, (mostly) White Kit that I will hopefully add to the shop in a day or two:






What I especially love to do is to use my handmade unfinished tags and book page bags to pack all these small pieces and yarns into. That way a buyer can use them in a project also, and I get a chance to recycle and help this planet a bit.

Anyway, I have been in and out of the hospital for the past twenty days or so, and I have a week before the treatment starts, so I am trying to work as much as I can and to stock up my shop. I will (hopefully) be home for the weekends in the next couple of months, and my husband will also help me with shipping the packages to buyers, so the shop will work normally. I do need that type of work/fun/amusement/thought distraction now. 🙂

I wish you all great day/night!


Good News

I am very lucky to be given the opportunity to sell my albums and other pretty things in the best part of Belgrade – the “Skadarlia Street” or often called “Bohemian Street”. If you’re looking for traditional Serbian food, galleries full of amazing art, beautiful cafes, and just great atmosphere, you should come to Skadarlia Street. A lovely and very talented lady is opening a shop in a few days, and she asked me if I would like to sell my stuff there. I mean, how could I refuse an offer like that! 🙂

So, I have been busy making albums, and they are all inspired by Spring! Bright colors, flowers, glitter, feathers…I am having so much fun! In fact, the “look” of my new albums is maybe even too bright and romantic than what I usually make, but I couldn’t help it. Blame the sunshine and blooming trees,lol!

Here is the first one, and I’ll post photos of other albums some other day because it would be just too much for one post. 🙂

And that’s the first one. I hope you like it. 🙂

Weekend Fun

Spending time with my hubby, enjoying a warm weather, making waffles and salads, taking a nap…Great weekend! But I also made a bunch of flowers while watching TV in the evening. It’s Spring, so it’s flower time! 🙂

Organza and satin:

Crocheted flowers:

They will look great in my journals and albums, maybe on a poncho or a scarf, or I could make a brooch with them. I love making my own embellishments, and to tell you the truth, I just learned how to crochet these! Thank you YouTube (and my patience)! lol!

I also made some fabric tags a few days ago, and I love them! 🙂

Can you see the crochet flower in the top right? 🙂

Have a great day everyone!

Play Day

It’s weekend, so it’s the perfect time to play, right?

It all started yesterday…

I pulled out my paper scraps, which were starting to take over every inch of free space around and on my desk and so had to be dealt with.

So I decided to make some tags and cards. You know that I don’t like to throw away anything. 🙂

That was fun! And I have more scraps to use, so there will be more fun for me!

After that I had to play a bit in my Art Journal, you know, to have even more fun,LOL! I decided to use crayons, just to see what happens…

At first, these pages were very different, but then I realized that didn’t look good, kinda distracting, so I made some changes to the page on the right to make it a bit like it was my intention for the whole spread to look like this, hehehe. Successful or not, I like it. Crayons, acrylic paint, gluing, stamping, scraping, oh such a lovely mess!

But then I thought I would make another spread, because, you know, it was fun! 🙂

Simple, but I’m happy with it! And it also made me discover something about my self – I like circles! 🙂

Have a wonderful day!
