How to make jewelry out of old cookies?/ Kako napraviti nakit od starih kolača?

step no.1: paint the cookies with a paint of your choice  (I've used acrylic colours and nail polish ) /obojite kolačiće, ja sam koristila akrilne boje i lak za nokte

I don't need to mention you have to let them dry, do I? ...and the fact they must be hard cookies?/ Ne moram spominjati da ih treba ostaviti da se osuše, zar ne? kao i činjenicu da ovo mora biti tvrda vrsta kolača?

Step number 3- Having pierced the cookie with a needle, you should put a thread through it and improvise a necklace. You can make it from the thread or use a satin cord, or use a combination of the two (as I have). Let your imagination run wild. I've included plenty of photos of necklaces that I have been making lately to give you some inspiration. I'm thinking about making another post about this eco-friendly technique of making jewelry that I have just came up with....we'll see. As always, thank you for reading.

Korak broj tri....dakle, kada ste probušili kolač, stavite konac kroz njega i napravite ogrlicu za njega kakvu želite. Možete koristiti konac ili kao ja kombinaciju konca i satenske trake (ili što god vam se nađe pri ruci) Pustite mašti na volju. Ja sam uključila dosta fotografija ogrlica koje sam pravila u zadnje vrijeme...ako imate nekih pitanja, ostavite ih u komentarima...Možda napravim još koji post o ovoj ekološkoj tehnici izrade koju sam izmislila, vidjeti ćemo. Kao i uvijek, hvala na čitanju.


  1. This is so creative! You better pinterst these gems so everyone can appreciate your talent

  2. You're a genius! <3 And a princess too... so beautiful :D Dear friend... you're my favourite artist, and these jewels are original!! <3 kisses and hugs

  3. Zanimljivo, pogodno za "na brzinu" kad nam treba detalj u nekoj boji ili određenog oblika. Podseća me na liciderska srca koja su pravljena od testa i koja mogu da se nose i oko vrata.

    1. sad kad si to spomenula, možda sam tako (od licitarskih srca) i dobila ideju.

  4. Ovo je baš zanimljiva ideja i veoma kreativno :)
    Pratim nazad preko gfc, g+ i blogovin. xx

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
