Archives for the month of: April, 2011

I was so inspired during few days so finished this collection which started creating a while ago…

Yesterday I made 2 pairs and today took photos. Really like them (:

  

  

  

I also started making other earrings which I hope to show you soon. Hope this inspires ((:

And I wish all of you to have a nice Saturday evening  !!

I really don’t much like hair accessories except simple black hair band… But bows are something sweet. I had an old sweater:

which I had recycled before month or more and had many lefts which I didn’t throw away. I wanted to make something but didn’t know what. And one day I was inspired by hair bows. It’s something what I think to be cute but I don’t like wearing it on myself…

  

  

I like it as it’s different from other bows which I had or still have.. If you are interested in making bows I offer to visit this site . I really like it, got many new ideas and I liked photo explanations ((:

Also I’m very happy that finally the weather is absolutely beautiful, it’s really a taste of summer. Hope you also really enjoy your spring and all the mix of colors ((:

This is a very very very old project, I made it maybe one year ago or more.. I was so hooked by decoupage technique so decided to try it in decorating clothes. Had an old T-shirt tried it.

  

  

I also had to narrow it as hips part was too loose. I think it’s quite easy, fast  and cheap way in decorating and making from old stuff new one. It only takes time thinking about what exactly should be glued up, also it takes time while it becomes dried. The last step is ironing. I like these special glue as it’s even possible to wash in the washing machine. I made another shirt but my ‘decor paint’ had a little accident but still I like it. Maybe one day will show you (((:

So beautiful morning and day… Since very early childhood I knew that this day is special- it’s spirit, all traditions, games which we played. I remember how with brothers, cousins and friends we went asking ‘gifts’ in neighbourhood, games with eggs, all cuisine and that feeling of already come in spring (((:

Today we celebrated quite calm, only as always my parents made a revolution in the kitchen: prepared too many dishes ((: Here are few pictures from today’s table (which was really big): mom baked 2 pies, I like them very much, every time she uses different ingredients (berries, fruits, apples, etc..). Also we painted traditionally eggs with herbs. And I really wanted to try to make something new, so.. made tiramisu (really love it !!)  

 

  

I found it’s recipe here, it’s a pity here it’s in Lithuanian but as it’s really traditional, surely in net there are plenty of them ((:

Hope you also enjoy your Easter, time which you can spend with very important persons ((:

     

  

  

  

  

Today I’ve searched an inspiration how to paint Easter eggs.. I really liked these ((: Also I love these Jelly eggs:

  

I remember that in my childhood mom was doing these without this special form: she blew out ”egg” and left it’s scale filling in it jell. Remember once she made a joke: the jell was white and inside of it was a piece of peach so it really looked like an egg (as firstly it was with normal scale). So, it was big surprise to find it being a dessert ((:

And here are more ideas which I liked for the Easter ((:

 

  

So here’s time to prepare cakes.. I’m going to prepare Tiramisu first time in my life (I know it’s not a special Easter cuisine part but.. I want it).. (:

   

   

  

  

  

If…  If one  day I’ll have a tattoo , it will be one of these, for sure  (((:

I had made them before few months and only now have made photos… This is really easy pattern which I found in burdastyle . I found many examples which really inspired me:

    

So, as I like so much recycling idea I decided to try to make one by myself. I didn’t want to buy some material just for a try as I had one idea in my head. So I used my old clothes: knitted dress, some old material and the lining material was part from my bedding. also I added 2 extra pockets inside of it. Also made from carton some ‘side parts’ –> right now my bag has a shape ((: Here’s the result:

  

I liked this one so much that decided to make another one :DD Also recycled from some already left materials. For lining part used my grandma’s old pants. Also made extra pocket inside and another one (brown which you can see) outside and made the same ”carton shape” as in previous bag but this time only for the bottom part. And added some decor parts, still don’t know if they were necessary but I  didn’t like only grey.. Here’s it:

  


Like this bag as it’s quite easy to make and there I can put almost hole my stuff :DD Really practical item ((:

I enjoyed so much changing T-shirts so here is my (actually this one was first one, but I post it as second) second experiment !! Originally it were a very simple T-shirt:

So I removed the neck, and cut out the back part. I wanted to have something opened as I got my new shorts which I love !!! So, here’s the result:

  

  

Still I have to wear it with high waist skirts/shorts as the simple bottom part of T-shirt doesn’t look very nice… There are still one T-shirt left to change, but.. Will rest for few days :DD Right now I’m very inspired about changing colors, will try to remake one old shirt, hope that experiment will be successful ((:

Yes, finally the weather is quite good and I am able to make photos of my really latest works !!! So.. in my wardrobe found few T-shirts which were new, but.. I don’t like wearing them. I took really big one (size L), so soft material !! But in the back side was very big publicity note :

  

So I decided to cut out it.. I made opened back, removed sleeves and changed the front part. And made something new what right now I just love !!!

  

  

Hope this inspires.. (: I’m also very glad that today is so sunny !! And.. First time in my life my younger brother so easily helped me when I asked him to make photos :DD So really… miracles happens (:

Another taste of summer…  I was quite lucky to find a very cheap bikini. Unfortunately, the bottom part was too big for me.. Still I bought it as I loved the material- navy and dots !!! So I decided to try to resize it. I cut the long of the bottom and also narrowed it. As I didn’t like the top, I used something from my old bikini to make it more solid:

Here’s how it looked before and now:

I like the result how it looks now !! Interesting was that I have navy with white dots material and was searching for an inspiration to sew a new dress, one of my previous posts was about it !! Still I plan to make it but the funniest part was that after publishing this inspiration post I bought this bikini.. And finally today I have resewed it, quite easy way to make something nicer for summer  ((:
