New year`s resolution :)

I`ve been really busy these days. Didn`t even have time to write a post or two. So I`ll post everything I did next year. :)

I hope you`ll have fun today and every day of new year. I`m off to a mountain cabin today where we will have party. Can`t wait. This year was great for me and I hope the next one will be too. So my new year`s resolution is to have fun every day of year 2009. :) I think I can handle that.

Have fun! Happy NEW YEAR!


oh my tree and Friday sketchers ...

I finally made card for last week. It seems I don`t have time for anything these days. I work and when I come home I just go to bed. What a waste of time. :) But I did manage to make this card for Friday sketchers ...

I still need some more cards ... I have to send it to my friends. Especially to those I don`t see much. Anyway, this card was made from some paper prom my old stash, gold pencile and some felt. Easy easy. I like making cards if I have a sketch to follow.

And ... I missed last weeks cute card thursday ... but only because I was making my christmas tree. :) And this is proof:
Isn`t this tree sweet. :) But I`m gonna try harder for this weeks card.


Why not another challenge ... Cute card thursday ...

So I had time and I decided I`m gonna do another challange. This week Cute card thursdays card is all about hearts. And here are mine ... :)
I used some paper from my old stash and some new paper. The red one with hearts is new. It is from a collection of papers that my sister gave me (thank you :)). It`s Paper touch - papers from all over the world fom Claire Fontaine. Love it. Oh, and I made snowlakes with my new puncher. :)
Anyway, I made a very simple card for this thursday.

St. Nicolas day ...

Love it love it love it ... When we were little we put the biggest pot we could find in the halway ... so that St. Nicolas would give us a lot of gifts. :) Now I usually just wish to get some socks or something like that. :) Well and sweets too. :) So this year I got some really great mittens. They are sooooo cute. I love them!
My mum made them. I think I got red mittens with blue stripes for St. Nicolas day two years ago. And they are really poorly-looking things now. So It`s great that I got new ones, because I really need them. Aren`t they great or what??!! And thay came together with ... yes, you guessed ... with sweets and tangerins (they are really necessary for St. Nicolas day ... it wouldn`t be the same without that sweet tangerine smell.) :)Oh, and when I`m at it ... I sould share this with you. :) I`ve got this flower in my room ... It`s white rose. And it`s still there ... so why is this strange? Because I have it for almost a month now and it looks the same as when I got it. And it is not a plastic flower. :D Maybe it will last till the end of december. :)

This is going to be a loooong post :)

I decided I`m only gonna have one blog fore everything ... :) One is hard enough to keep up with. Anyway ... since I`m gonna delete my other blog I`ll coppy-paste those posts that are worth to see. :)

So here are posts with great pictures. :)

It was snowing today. :) I went to work at 7:30 and first snowflakes were falling down. When I wanted to go home 8 hours later ... I found this waiting for me:
It took another 30 minutes before I cleaned this. :) Pictures are taken with my phone so they are not really good. But I think you can see everything it needs to be seen. :)

And all I could see while driving home was ... snow:
I love snow ...

We went for a walk yesterday. On a hill near my b-friends home. It was one of those great sunny sundays in fall. :) We were catching the last glimps of sun. It was beautiful.
After that we went to a turistical farm (our friends family has this farm) to have something to eat. This pictures were taken 100 meters away from this farm. It is really great view. (pictures were taken with my cell phone, so quality is not really great ... sorry)

Anyway ... it was a great day. Now we are just hoping that it will get colder and that december will be white. I love winter evenings. Snow outside and me inside under a warm blanket. :) mmmmm

Me and my boyfriend went to Ljubljana two days ago. We had real fun shopping, walking around and pretending that we are tourists. :) Taking pictures of everything. Fun fun fun! It was raining at home and storm was comming really fast over Ljubljana too. Here are some pictures of our trip.

We went to get a cup of coffie in this sweet cafe ... la petit cafe ...
As I said there was rain at home. And this was the result: River near our house got huuuge. :) And really dirty brown. (this is view from my balcony)
Lake in nearby town was brown too. Usually it has really nice colour.

And this is how the road looked like when I was going home from my boyfriends home. Leaves everywhere. Water was overflowing the road (wich is really narrow).

Anyway, I like fall even in rain ... fall always has great colours. :)

I finally have some time to put promised pictures in here ... :)

First there was a vineyard ...

Hailstone did a lot of damage this year ...
But there was still enough grapes for four containers like this (and they aren`t small) ... :) We will drink wine this year too.

Ghost in wine cellar ... :) Let`s just hope it won`t drink all this years wine ...


Friday Sketchers Sketch Number 30

It is friday again :). Today I didn`t have to go to work. So I`m at home, looking through windows, waiting for snow. :) It is suppose to be snowing today again. Yipiiiiiii! :)

Anyway, because it`s friday again it is time for Friday Sketchers too. It is a very simple sketch, leaving us free hands. This is what I did:I made a very very simple card. I`m not completely satisfied with it. I think it looks a bit plain. But then again I do like simple cards the most. :) I just can`t decide on this one.

This week I used some left-over felts I had (The one I used for decorating my car) and again some glitter glue. :) I love that.


Friday Sketchers Sketch number 29

Ok ... Here is my card for this week. It was a great sketch. This week I used some glitter glue (by UHU) and silver pen by edding.

So, here it is ...
I`m quite happy about how it turned out. :) And what do you think?


Finally stamps ...

I bought my first set of stamps. Finally. :) It is "O tannenbaum" (Oh christmas tree) set from Variostempel. I love it. I can`t wait till friday to get new sketch from Friday sketchers so I can try them. :)
Sweeeeeet! :) I wish it would be xmas already. :)

Friday Sketchers Sketch number 28

So, here it is this week card ... Hope you`ll like it ... bit even if you don`t just post your comment. Good or bad I will read it all. :)
I chose colors from golden to red. I used some colored paper from my stash (I think I have this paper from my highschool ... :)) I did picture by myself - again. :) I used my watercolor pencils.

And again text is in slovenian language. It means HAPPY HOLIDAY.

Friday Sketchers Sketch number 27

I did FS card last week too, but I didn`t have time to post it. :( Although it`s too late I decided I will post it this week. Just so that you can coment. :) Well, here it is now.
Picture was done by me. I did some embossing (shablon from Rayher hobbykunst). Paper was mostly from my origami paper collection.



Friday sketchers challenge nr 26

This is my card for this friday.
I bought the red paper for card this week, when I went to Ljubljana. It is MAJESTIC emperor red. It`s a bit shiny. I bought some silver and golden paper too. Green paper for tree and shiny paper for ornaments and bands is KYOWA origami paper. I bought that one in Tokyo last year. It is great for things like this. Picture was drawn by me and colored with my watercolor penciles by Faber-castell. Everybody knows the agony of getting tree lights ready ... They get knotted again and again every year :).



And I shouldn`t forget this one ...

You have to make some effort to get this blog candy. :) Love it! The one that will get this candy will absolutely earn it. It`s a tough guess. I wonder who will get it.


Another blog candy ... A lot of people is giving away goods this days. And we all love it. Don`t we? So, here is another one: Scrapping away !


My first FS entry

I came acros this great blog called Friday Sketchers. So I`m gonny try a bit of my creativity. :) So, this is my first card ...I really think I`m gonna have to try better next time. :) (But in my defence ... I`m really sick right now :( )

My "forever yours" card (picture is a bit smudgy I think ... sorry for that. I have to find a way how to take a picture of this cards ... I think scaning them is not really good idea because they could get squashed :)) :

Well, this is it ... I`m waiting for next friday. I just hope I`m gonna get over this flue (or whatever it is) so that I`m gonna have more energy to do this :).


Everybody wants free stuf ...

... even me. :) But even if I don`t get it ... it doesn`t matter. I get inspiration from THIS blog. It is worth checking out. AND Leonie is giving blog candy for 10000 hits. Congrats!!

Anyway ... you can find her blog in my blog list too. :)


I was wondering ... is anybody out there? :)

Anyway ... it will soon be december ... and all the holidays ... So it`s probably time for me to make some Xmas cards. Every year I say I`m gonna make them myself ... but I never really got to that. :) Time speeds up in october every year. And - again and again - december always surprises me. So I send cards that I buy. But not this year!

It was/is a great year for me. So much happened to me. So why not push my luck a bit more. :) This year I`m gonna make Xmas cards. :) And I`m gonna start right now.

Come back for update. :)


I have been busy

I have been doing some things ... But lately I really don`t have much time. So, what did I do last two weeks? Work most of the time. But I did find few minutes here and there to do some sewing.

First project was finishing my res skirt ... It was giving me a lot of problems. But I finally did finish it. Although it did not came out the way I wanted to. But it still looks ok. I got pattern form an old sewing book we have at home. I think I`m gonna stick to Burda modemagazin from now on ... Because sizes in this book were a bit strange. :)

Zipper foot ... aaaaa ... I love it. :) It makes thing so much easyer.
My next project was toiletry bag. I made it very quickly. I did try to follow this pattern ... but I must admit I was improvising a lot. :) At the end it looks quite ok.

Then it was another party comming up ... My friend just graduated. So we went out for a few drinks. He is now a criminalist. We didn`t know what to give him. So we wanted to give him the best partner for work. :) It was soooo much fun. We gave him Rex. Not the real one. I made the inscription on the back: "REX KRIMINALPOLIZEI". :) Our friend loved it. He is gonny put it on the back shelf of his car.I finished my last project today. It was a top from very cute fabric. :) With small cats on it. Pattern is from Burda modemagazin 2/2008. Pattern no. 122. Very easy to make.

And that is it ... I think I`m gona try to make shirt next. :) We`ll see ...


Finally something new

It was my friends B-day and I wanted to give her something made by me. I always like to have small bags in my bag ... so that everything is well organized. I remembered this great tutorial for small bags. Thank you Javajem! :)

I got this really great fabric. White with red print on it. And one red material for inner parts of bags.My friend was very pleased with the present. And of course I was very happy about it. :)
