Illustration of the day (Hope) / Ilustracija dana (Nada)

The place to look for hope is deep inside of us
Nadu treba tražiti u dubini vlastitog bića. U nekim stvarima se ne smijemo oslanjati na druge. Svatko od nas je odgovaran za sebe. Nada ne ovisi o vanjskim okolnostima, ona nas može pratiti i u najmračnijim vremenima i kada smo posve sami. No, moramo nadi otvoriti vrata, moramo je pozvati u svoj život da bismo je mogli naći u srcu i duši. Moramo shvatiti da nada ne mora uvijek imati smisla. Ponekad se osjećaj nade pojavljuje u najapsurdnijim tradegijama, ali možda je to zbog toga što nam je tada najviše potreban.  Logika je ipak samo početak mudrosti, a racionalnim ne bismo nikad trebali gušiti nadu. Nadi je potreban zrak, a taj zrak je tiho povjerenje, slično onom koje postoji između starih prijatelja koji se razumiju bez riječi.

We should look for hope within the dept of our own being. When it comes to certain things, it is better not to lean on others. Each and every one of us is responsible for ourselves. Hope doesn't depend on circumstances and facts of life. We can be accompanied by hope even in the darkest times and the most lonely hours of our life. However, we must invite hope into our lives to be able to find it in our heart and soul. We must accept that hope will not always make sense. Sometimes the feeling of hope appears in the most absurd of tragedies, but that may be because that is when we need it the most.  Logic is only the beginning of wisdom.  Rationalism should never suffocate hope. Hope needs air to breathe and that air is in fact a silent trust, the kind of trust that exists between old friends who can understand one another without uttering a single word.

  10. Hope ... seems a very complicated word, I agree with you that the ideal place to find it is in it ourselves, but our Christian Jew education, at least in Mexico is what prevails, and the mistake is that hope is sought in religion ... I will stop my anti-religion speech. I loved the picture, thanks for sharing.

    1. No religion can claim to have the monopoly on hope, there are pleanty of people in this world who aren't religious at all but are still hopeful and have a developed sense of ethics that some religious people lack...so there are no rules.

  14. Hope is best found in....PIZZA!!! :) Ah but really, dear, nice writing. I stay hopeful, too hopeful. I am constantly imagining situations and settings where the best outcome takes place and surprised when it does not. It is very frustrating because people are so confused and random, but the thinking of these things is so fun I would hate to give it up.

  16. Such a lovely drawing with full of emotions and meaning :)
    There comes a time in our lives that we lose hope for something-- i think we need to stand brave and face the fact that we need to move on with our lives.

    Love this inspirational post

  22. Divno rečeno. Sećam se i sama nekih baš ružnih situacija i perioda. Nada je čudo koje ne očekuješ tada, ali se ipak pojavi.
    Crtež je takođe prelep, sviđa mi se kako si napravila kosu od cvetića :)

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.

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…
