DIY Christmas cards / Uradi sam božične čestitke
this one is still work in progress/ ova još nije gotova
The great thing about making your own Christmas cards (or any cards for that matter) is that you don't need to buy any supplies or materials (no need to run down to a hobby shop) , take any classes or participate in any workshops to be able to do it. You may use whatever you like, cut an image from some magazine, a piece of fabric or paper napkin and just glue it to a paper or cardboard. You might use old Christmas decorations, make up or nail-polish, anything really. I think that the most important thing is to make them personal and I believe that the person you give it to or send it to will appreciate the special effort you took to make them.
To me it made sense to use my own illustrations as well as to make some new ones (but you may use whatever you like). In addition, I used other things I found in my home, such as cardboard (from used packaging) , make up supplies (cotton pads or cotton balls to be more precise), glue and paper napkins (these bird printed paper napkins I bought in DM with DIY agenda in mind and have used them in many DIY projects so I can say they really payed off).
I might do another post like this one, with more ideas, so if you're up for that don't forget to write so in the comments.
Odlična stvar kod pravljenja svojih vlastitih božičnih čestitki (ili bilo kakvih čestitki što se toga tiče) je da ne morate kupovati nikakve materijale ( ne morate trčati do hobby prodavaonice) niti pohađati neke sate ili radionice da biste to mogli napraviti. Možete koristiti što god želite, izrezati sliku iz nekog časopisa, komad tkanine ili salvete i jednostavo to zaljepiti na papir ili karton. Možete koristiti stare božične dekoracije, šminku, lak za nokte, bilo što zaista. Mislim da je najvažnija stvar učiniti ih posebnim i vjerujem da će osoba kojoj ih date ili pošaljete cijeniti poseban trud koji ste uložili da ih napravite.
Meni se činilo logičnim koristiti vlastite ilustracije kao i napraviti neke nove. Osim toga, koristila sam stvari koje sam pronašla doma, kao što je karton ( s nekih pakiranja), pamučne blazinice (ili jastučiće kako tko već kaže mada su ovo više pamučne kuglice), ljepilo i salvete (ove salvete s uzorkom ptičica sam kupila u DM-u, imajući na umu baš ovakve uradi sam projekte, dosta sam ih koristila, preslatke su i baš su mi se isplatile.)
Mogla bih napisati još jedan ovakav post, s još više ideja, pa ako vam to zanima, ne zaboravite to napisati u komentarima.
What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway.
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets.
1. START WITH ACCESSORIES
If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…
I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
