exciting march

What an amazing way this month has started… my good friend and fab artist Amanda Hiller has been featured in Period Living magazine. Amanda’s work is so lovely and when I first heard about the news of this article, I didn’t realise the scale of it… Amazing!! Getting my copy tomorrow!!

But the other exciting thing about this article is that some of my photos are featured in it as well 😀 So happy! Its a great way of showing off our continuous cooperation.

Here are a few photos I took of Amanda, her work and her studio.

Enjoy

spring is just the best

Spring is great, if I could I would move around in different countries to enjoy spring at least two or three times a year and maybe have one summer. Yeah, I could do with that 🙂

Here are a few photos from the last couple of weeks

Also, I have been nominated for this ‘Sunshine Award’, for which I’m really grateful, I just didn’t have time to sort my act out out do what this nomination requires. I promise I’ll do my best to answer questions and stuff and show you my new collection of bags too.

Until then go and enjoy a bit of spring sun 🙂

spring is in the air

Ever happened to you that you are doing something for a period of time and although you are giving it your 100% it just doesn’t want to work… and then one day it just falls into place and it works. Its hard to explain because I feel in the world of “art” (please don’t think I’m big headed) and craft there are very few rules as to what you need to do… it all come down to whether it “works” or not. And sometimes pieces go against all or most rules and they still “work”.

I feel like I have been taking photographs for the last few weeks and non of them felt too good… I just felt like there wasn’t anything that I liked about them. Been to the Birmingham Photography Show  and there was a fab little garden set up and I really enjoyed taking photos of the succulents there, but it was more of a “lets fight me being so self conscious” thing, I think I haven’t even looked at the images I took.

But today for some reason, after 6 hours of walking these images just feel like they sing to me… An amazing photographer said this recently and I really like the phrase. My photos are just aspiring shadows compared to hers, I feel like I want to take photos like these when I grow up 🙂 or when I finally manage to save up for a 50mm lens at least :-p

But in the mean time, here are today’s glimpse in the spring sunshine

I just recently uploaded these photos to my Facebook page, all this bla bla of art and effort of taking a good photo and guess which photo people like the most? Well the one with dog of course… this dog is stealing my photographic glory 🙂

Je veux more creative and productive days! :)

I have been on and off about spring lately… but it just makes me so so happy to see all this sunshine.

Today I went outside, inhaled all the warmth and dug out a gorgeous vintage canvas fabric, I bought ages ago and started making… and here it is, a spring bag!!!

It is far from perfect but it is my absolute favorite so far… I used a D-ring to make the shoulder strap adjustable and also a green satin ribbon and a hand made, light pink, ceramic button to close it. And I even tested it 😉 – didn’t wanted be miss-lead by the flowery look. The result – definitely sturdy!

Thank you for dropping by, see you next time, but until then, listed to her!

easy Tuesday mornings…

Last week I made this bag… still stock with the raspberry colored linen 🙂 and with this song :). I think they both match eachother and perfectly accompany this lovely spring sunshine and warm smells that is happening right outside my window.

So people, if you have the chance even for five minutes, just enjoy the warmth and use the creativity of the light that is spreading everywhere!

Also, started crocheting a top, inspired by Maggie… and I was ever so impressed, as I managed to follow a pattern without difficulty… gosh, I felt invincible 🙂 Will post it as soon as I’m finished!

Until next time, happy sunny Tuesday everyone!
