New abilities

I've always wanted to be able to draw. People, dogs and cats. And today I was asked to sketch a doll. I thought it would be hard for me, but, for my surprise it wasn't. I did exactly what I imagined. 

Take a look at my sketch. 

Two dolls on their way. Also my paper work for bachelors degree and lots of other ideas. Do not mention  two children, husband, cat and dog. Oh, busy me!

My Finds

It's Sunday again, and I'd like to write about two wonderful creators. I found them couple of years ago and I adore their works since then. I'm amazed how creative they are, how many new forms they have found through the years I follow them.
First I woud like to tell about Maria aka Kjoo from Portugal. I found her amazing jewelry on her Flickr page. I remember my first impression , I was fascinated, just watched again and again, picture after picture. Also Maria has her Etsy shop kjoo on Etsy. Till now I love all tiny details, all original ideas and I wish all the best luck for this fabulous artist.

The second artist I'm presenting today is Laura aka Lupin from Bugs and Fishes by Lupin; this fabulous girl made me fall in love with bright colors and things from felt. I like her bright, original, sometimes funny designs and her attitude to tea. She has Etsy shop where you can find her felt brooches, headbands, masks and felt squares for your own projects. 

The day, when I decided to write about Lupin, I found that she has a giveaway in her blog, chek it out and participate, maybe you'll be the lucky one.  

I have to confess, I tried to make something like these creative girls, I even wear some of those items, but I know, that this is not my thing. What I know is that their success and creative way is a big inspiration for me.

My Etsy Finds

I spend a lot of time surfing Etsy. Wonderful and most important - useful place, full of articles, lots of fabulous items, creators and inspiration. I think it would be a shame not to post some items, which I find on Etsy, in my blog. I hope it'll become tradition and I post my finds every week.
Today I begin from flying mobiles. I have few of them in my Etsy Favorites list, so today, I'll start from them.
First is this wonderful mobile called Seed from EdenLand. I found this item very inspirational in lots of ways.

I love all colorful bears from ememem, but Three Bear Feathery Mobile In Blue is fantastic! In my opinion, this is wonderful gift for a newborn, or even bigger kid. And I'd love to have one in my children's room.

One more item. One more flying mobile. It's Altered Art Leather Mobile Mini Air Balloon Summer Breeze from pushok1983. I think it would look great in our living room, I love texture of air balloon and this air balloon reminds me about summer, when we watch air balloons flying by our house.

I enjoyed while I wrote this entry and I really hope, that I'm going to write about my Etsy finds every week. 
Have a nice Sunday the sun is shining finally!
