Sketch and DIY of the day / Skica i DIY dana

We always think we know better, but what is there to do but believe that someday we will really know better.
Uvijek mislimo kako znamo bolje, ali zaista što nam preostaje nego vjerovati da ćemo jednog dana zaista i znati bolje.

Hello! Today I'm sharing one sketch that is accompanied by a message and a DIY. The message on the sketch is pretty self explanatory. We often think we know better but then we realize that we don't. However, life is all about learning from our mistakes so there is nothing else to do but to try again and believe that some day we'll truly know better.

As far as DIY goes, it's pretty simple. I  have sewn these little hearts onto this striped top yesterday because I wanted to cover up little holes that were beginning to form on it. You know when you manage to find a cotton t-shirt that is really made from cotton and then you wash it a few times only to discover those annoying little holes forming? Well, here is a solution for it. A solution that is very low cost and not time consuming at all...In fact, all you need is a needle, thread, a bit of material and about five minutes of your time.

Zdravo! Danas s vama dijelim jednu skicu praćenu s porukom i uradi sam projektom. Poruka na skici je dosta jasna sama od sebe. Često mislimo kako znamo bolje ali onda shvatimo da nije tako. Međutim u životu učimo od pogrješaka tako da nemamo zapravo drugo rješenje nego pokušati ponovo i vjerovati da ćemo jednog dana doista znati bolje.

Što se tiče uradi sam projekta, jako je jednostavan. Jučer sam ušila ova mala srca na prugastu majicu jer sam željela pokriti rupice koje su se počele formirati na majici. Znate kada uspijete pronaći pamučnu majicu koja je stvarno pamučna i onda je operete par put samo da biste otkrili te iritirajuće rupice. Evo rješenja! Rješenje koje je vrlo povoljno i ne oduzima puno vremena. Zapravo sve što vam treba je igla, konac, malo materijala i oko pet minuta vašeg vremena. 


  1. I love the DIY, very creative. I have been thinking of doing something similar lately. I want to sew a huge heart onto a jumper. The illustration is very meaningful.

  26. Your sketch is very cool and I will take your message even deeper because I like it. What if, before we are born, we are allowed to give out future selves challenges in life in hopes they teach us what we need to know. Too deep for the comment section? Sounds like me :)

    All Things Bright and Lovely

  27. Your DIY is not only an excellent way to cover holes, but it's a great personal touch even without holes. It's not easy to get better.

  28. Majica izgleda predobro! Sviđa mi se kombinacija prugica i jedva je čekam vidjeti na tebi! :) Poruka dana mi se sviđa također, istina...

    Pusa Ivek!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
