All the pretty little things that make me happy

I’m publishing this post in hope that next time when I open my boxes to make some paper craft or when I sit in front of my sewing machine I won’t be lazy to take some snaps. (Bizarre is the thing that I have boyfriend who is professional photographer but that is probably an explanation for laziness and for disorder where I always have to show  photos to him first which additionally complicates the situation.) Next time I’ll try to post the making of but this time I decided to show to my dear readers all the things I made lately
Here they are;
Decoupage jewelry box… painted old jewelry box with acrylic paint and glued little bird and flowers (from paper napkins)
Wall art…made of old plywood, white paint, cutouts from Vogue Paris (I just adore their font)
Mood board and to-do-board in mint...Since I am still seriously obsessed with mint, I painted frames and embellished with few flowers made of tissue paper. Dress repair… I bought a dress in thrift store and made mini from maxi.
Wall art with heart…again made of old plywood, acrylic paint, dried petals of almond flowers and violets.
Newspaper table…I painted old newspaper table in mint. (oh what a surprise) Embellished old jars… I adore old jars everywhere; as lanterns in garden, in kitchen, in room, as storage of little things or candleholders. Usually I am using decoupage technique or lace. The one at photo was a gift for friend. Pearl collar…I sewed pearls onto collar of old blue shirt (but I actually don’t wear it) Bags….I sewed a lot of shoe bags/lingerie bags from old fabrics that I use for organizing of my closet.

NOTE:You don’t have to be an artist to make the pretty little things. All you need is creativity and enthusiasm, just like in life.

Wow, you are really creative!! I love the line at the end, you have inspired a very uncreative young lady to try and make some things too :)

Beautiful post! You really do make a lot of pretty things and are quite talented! I love what you did with the pearl collar and the jewelry box is so gorgeous. I'll have to try and get crafty at some point. I can be so lazy.

so artistic and so beautiful. We are so alike on the "not-taking-photos-of-the-making-of". When i work i dont want to get distracted by pauses for snapping purposes...lol!
