"Santa's Christmas sleighs" with Graphic 45

Hi my dear crafty friends,

I haven't been arround much lately, I haven't been in my best place and not feeling to well. But I still find time to play a bit with my beloved Graphic 45 papers, while preparing for my next workshop. Sleighs are made from two pieces of 2-dimensional chipboards and I added some cardboard in between to form a middle part of the sleighs, this way I recreated 3D piece from 2D piece of chipboards. Of course I used my favourite Deep rectangle Matchbook box from Graphic 45 to put my sleighs on and I dressed it in one of my favourite Graphic 45 past Christmas collections - Twas the night Before Christmas. I also used the same papers to dress up my gifts on the Santa's sleighs. You can also use some of the newest Graphic 45 Christmas collections, like for example "Joy to the world" classic or patterned paper pad - it has beautiful and quite similar patterns.

"A Dream is a Wish your Heart makes" altered box

Hello dear Dusty Attic fans,

I'm so happy to be here with you on the blog today again. I fell in love with this month's gorgeous Moodboard and its soft and bright colors. 


I decided to go with a magical sea and mermaid theme and I altered this lovely keepsake box. I hope you'll like it.

"Don’t let time define your heart" altered Scale for Finnabair

Have you ever thought of how we live in a “funny” little world? Last week I went to my first international workshop in a beautiful Ireland. I was so excited to go, but few days before the departure my heart started getting pretty anxious and restless. There were so many doubts going on in my mind... it was the first time I was leaving my kids home without tucking them in bed at night, … When I was leaving on a plane and my kids were crying “mommy don’t go” and between desperately trying to held back my tears and calming them down by letting them know we will soon be together again, I said to my husband: “This is totally out of my comfort zone in so many ways.” You know what?! My kids survived! They had a great time home alone with their dad and I had such an amazing time and such an amazing experience in Ireland that I can’t wait to repeat some of my workshops again in the future! By stepping totally out of my comfort zone I allowed myself and my family to make a big step and grow so much in so many different ways.

Routines and habits are a big part of our lives. They provide stability in our lives and reduce anxiety. We write our appointments and our schedules down in our notebooks, sometimes down to the last minute of the day. We feel it is important, so we can get more things done and achieve more goals that we set for ourselves and sometimes also our dear ones. I believe some planning is actually pretty good and quite necessary to have in our lives. But did you feel at any point in your life that sometimes these habits, routines and patterns of our everyday lives take over and we find ourselves at the position when our lives are running us? Between job, family obligations and chores we forget to enjoy our time with our dear ones, we don’t take time for our hobbies anymore, sometimes we don’t even take time to sit and listen to ourselves, listen to our hearts and think about important things in life. We sometimes give up on dreams just because of the time it will take to make them happen. But we don’t realize that the time will pass anyway. And life is not about passing of the time. It is about enjoying those amazing moments in time, it is about collecting beautiful memories throughout our journey. Like they say - Life is not measured by the number of Breaths we take, but by the moments that take our Breath away. So don’t forget to stop, listen, think, enjoy and dream. Don’t let time be more important than the precious moments in time.

Mixed media Phone Booth "Travel the World"

Hi dear friends,

Hope you are doing great and you are enjoying your Autumn days. I just received this gorgeous 3D Phone Booth from Scrapiniec not long ago and I had it colored in white waiting on my desk for my inspiration. When I was traveling to Dublin where I was teaching workshops I got the idea how I want this gorgeous chipboard piece to look. I decided to dress it into beautiful Wanderlust Mintay papers and add some beautiful mixed media touches. I felt it fitted perfectly. I'm realy realy happy with the result and I hope you'll like it too.

"Leap of Faith" Dreamcatcher for Finnabair


One of my favourites from the amazing selection of gorgeous Prima-Finnabair products is definitely resist canvas. It gives such exciting opportunities to play with. So, I decided to use it today for the background in making a beautiful soft vintage Dreamcatcher. I dressed it into gorgeous combination of blue and gold-brown colors. I love making Dreamcatchers lately. I love the idea of letting yourself go, dream big and being excited for your Dreams to come true.

Find Joy in the ordinary day and open doors to new adventures

I hope you are spending your first September days as lovely as possible. With the start of September here in Slovenia school also started after two months long summer vacations. My three kiddos went back to 5th, 3rd and 2nd grade of 9 year long elementary school. It's been a busy and quite stressfull week as we are all trying to again get used of all the morning and daily routins and obligations that come with it. 

But as always there is some excitement in the air as they are stepping on a new journey, opening some new doors in their lives. I tried to encourage them and offer them some advices as mothers usually do and of the most important ones was to embrace the journey and to rejoice over the small things that happen to them on this journey. So this was also my inspiration for today's post with gorgeous 49 and Market products.

"Believe in Yourself" mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello hello my dear crafty friends. I'm back again with you here on the blog sharing some fresh summerish inspiration with amazing Dusty Attic chipies, inspired by the gorgeous summer Moodboard here on the Dusty Attic blog. I adore previous month's colors! They are perfect to me with these soft pastel vibes. My mind immediatelly traveled to breathtaking peacock feathers chipies in Dusty Attic store and I decided to do something with it. I arranged it in the middle of the composition with various other stunning chipboard pieces, some Mitform castings embellishments and some beautiful Prima flowers. Of course I couldn't go without tons of my favourite Finnabair supplies. I hope you'll like the outcome as much as I do.
