Artist's Trading Card Swap "Getting Away From It All"

As some of you might know, I am participating in Artist's Trading Card Swap organised by Ali of VeryBerryHandmade. This is the fourth swap, the third one for me and the theme this time around is "Getting Away From It All". When I got all the information regarding the swap and especially the theme, the first thing that I thought of was knitting. I knew exactly what I was going to make and I am quite happy that it looks almost, if not even better, like the idea I had on my mind.

A Small Gift For Someone Special

An extra pair of hot pot holders is alway useful in the busy kitchen. Right? Especially if you enjoy cooking and baking, and having big family gatherings. Well, a very special Lady just celebrated her birthday and I made a small gift especially for her. Hope she likes it.

Lacy Zipper + Pretty Fabric

What do you get when you put together a piece of pretty fabric and a lacy zipper? Of course a pretty little pencil case!

Work in Progress: ATCs

Getting Away From it All... What comes to your mind? Holidays at your favourite destination, a quiet walk through morning woods, maybe a stroll along a beach at sunset or maybe for you getting away from everything is simply spending some time creating - sewing, knitting, drawing... or maybe simply being with your family?

It's ATC Swap Time!

How exciting! I just love the Artist Trading Cards swaps Ali at VeryBerryHandmade organises throughout the year. The theme for the last swap was "Spring". This time around it's "Getting Away From it All". A theme that you can really interpret in any way you like.

Sounds interesting? I think so. I am sure all the participants are going to come up with amazing and very creative cards. Some of the girls have already published photos of their "work in progress" and some finished cards. Don't be shy, check out the Flickr Group. It's truly inspiring and creative. I am getting really excited and can't wait to share my work in progress with you soon. Larisa xox

Asked to Make

My not so Little Son got a present recently - a Boogie Board eWriter. It's a great tool for making notes, writing To-Do lists, making calculations or drawing sketches that you can easily save on your computer. Lucky boy! I might borrow it sometimes for some silly scribbling time. Well, the tablet came without a cover and for my greatest surprise, my son asked me to make him something. Yay!

Making Little Pretty Things

That's what I was busy with before we left on our trip. Making little, hopefully useful, but definitely pretty things. I made stamped linen ribbons with pink and red running stitches. So easy to make but really satisfying, especially when you don't have much time but feel like crafting a bit. They are great for making tags or adding it as it is to any project.
