Praznimo zaloge


Ja, zveni kot reklama katere od trgovin s pohištvom. In izgleda tudi, kot da jih res praznim. Meni pa je samo kombinacija gumbov in trakcev z papirjem na teh beležkah (ja, pa še Prima rožic sem našla nekaj v ustreznih barvah!) tako všeč, da se ne morem ustaviti pri treh ali štirih...


Obe beležki gresta za darilo - ena danes, druga čez nekaj dni.


(... zalog pa še zdaleč ni konec...)


EMPTYING THE STOCKS

Yes, it sounds like a commercial for a furniture store. And it also looks like I'm actually getting rid of my stocks. But I just like the combination of buttons and ribbons and paper on these booklets (yes, I even found some Prima flowers in matching colours!) so much that I cannot stop at three or four of them.


Both these booklets will be given away as presents - one today and another one in a few days' time.


(... and the stocks are not empty yet - not by far...)

Poletje ljubi guganje

SUMMER LOVES SWINGING


Tako kot tale dva navihanca. Na voščilnici za eno gospodičnico, ki danes praznuje svoj četrti rojstni dan.
/ Just like these two little guys. On a card for a little missy who celebrates her fourth birthday today.


Voščilnice nisem preveč krancljala, sem pa z veliko razcepko naredila to, da se gugalnica premika.
/ I tried not to put too many embellishments on it, but using a large brad, I managed to make the seesaw move up and down.


Vse najboljše, pikica!
/ Happy birthday, sweetie!



* * *

(Se mi niti ne zdi slabo, glede na to, da sploh ne vem več, kdaj sem naredila zadnjo...
/ (It's not even that bad, I think, considering that I don't know when I last made one...)

Dvanajst in sedem



Toliko rožic sem si še pripravila za zadnjo rundo - odtisnila, izrezala, nekatere pobarvala in naredila luknjice za obročke. Samo še "popihat" in "naobeskat" jih moram, potem jih pa še enkrat pokažem. (Aja, pa še nekaj črk me čaka...)

Številki pa sem v bistvu izbrala še zaradi nečesa.

Prva, dvanajstica, je za nagradici.



V zadnjih dnevih sem ju dobila od petih blog-prijateljic - pa ravno pet jih je na sliki :)

BojaMoja, Suzy, Kreal, Alenka in Snowflake

Vsem petim ju s prisrčno zahvalo in veseljem vračam, poleg tega pa ju predajam še naslednjim:

- kraljici popotovanj in albumov in evropskih stojnic Urški in kraljici sivke in vsega vijoličnega Dodo, za kateri sem srečna za trikrat okrog sveta, da sem ju spoznala

- kraljicam poligline Maji, Majdi in Kristini, za katere upam, da jih bom kdaj srečala v živo

- kraljicama pisane besede in risanja in slikanja in oh in sploh Kitty in Poloni, za kateri že komaj čakam, da ju spoznam

* * *

Druga, sedmica, je za seznamček, ki ga takrat, ko je bilo aktualno, nisem utegnila napisat:

Sedem stvari, ki jih obožujem

1. Moja družinica - Mravljinček in moji zlati deklici. Naši skupni trenutki, sprehodi, pustolovščine in crkljanje.

2. Moji sorodniki - ko bi le uspeli najti še več možnosti, da bi skupaj lahko preživeli več časa.

3. Moje ustvarjanje in moje nove sestrice, ki sem jih našla na Otoku zakladov - nikoli si nisem mislila, da imam toliko sorodnih duš in vse tako blizu, v naši mali Sloveniji

4. Morje. Zrak z vonjem po soli. Zlati odsev sonca na večerni gladini. Hlad prve stopinje v jutranje "ogledalo". Okroglo šumenje obračajočih se kamenčkov. Toplota od korakov zglajenih kamnov. Škržati v vročem opoldnevu. Galebi. Bele pene ob boku trajekta. Modrina.

5. Vijolična barva. Že dolga leta moja najljubša. Ne vem, zakaj.

6. Jesen. Barve odtehtajo hlad in mokroto.

7. V zadnji košarici jih je še kar nekaj. Sivka in spominčice. Moje delo. Harry Potter. London. Pohorje. Jugo muzika. In še vse tisto in vsi tisti, ki se niso ujeli v katero od teh sedmih točk, a vseeno imajo svoj prostor v delčku mojega srca.


TWELVE AND SEVEN

That is the number of flowers I've prepared for the last round - I stamped them, cut them out, coloured some of them, punched little holes for the rings. Now I only need to heat them and add the rings and then I'll show them once again. (Oh and yes, I've got some more letters to make...)

But the numbers were also chosen for another reason.

The first one, twelve, is for the prizes.

I recieved them over the last few days from five of my blog buddies - and there is exactly five ladies in the picture :)

BojaMoja, Suzy, Kreal, Alenka and Snowflake

Thank you, girls, and I'm sending them back to you - with my appreciation and good wishes.

And I'd like to give them to seven more bloggers:

- to the queen of travel and scrapbooks and stalls in the European village Urška and the queen of lavender and everything purple Dodo - I'm happy three times around the world to know you two

- the queens of polyclay Maja, Majda and Kristina - I hope I'll have a chance of meeting the three of you some day

- the queens of writing and drawing and painting and more and more Kitty and Polona - I can't wait to meet both of you

* * *

The second number, seven, is for the list that was a topic of a game some time ago, but I didn't get to write it them:

Seven things I love

1. My little family - my hubby and my two little girls. Our moments together, walks, adventures and cuddling.

2. My relatives - I wish we could find even more opportunities to spend some more time together.

3. My crafting hobby and my new sisters I've found at the Treasure Island - I never thought there were so many people who do and like the same things as me, and not even far away.

4. The sea. The air with the scent of salt. A golden reflection of the sun in the evening. The first step in the coolness of the morning "mirror". Round rustle of turning pebbles. The warmth of smooth stones. Heat and cicadas at noon. Seagulls. White foams by the side of a ferry. The blue endlessness.

5. Purple colour. Been my favourite for years. Don't know why.

6. Autumn. The colours prevail over the coldness and wetness.

7. There are quite some more in the last basket. Lavender and forget-me-nots. My work. Harry Potter. London. Pohorje. "Jugo muzika". And everything and all those that didn't fit in any of these categories and yet they have their own place in my heart.

Skrčka (3)

Še eno stvar sem preizkusila:
/ I tried out one more thing:

Natisnila sem si precej velike črke
/ I printed some pretty large letters


jih izrezala (tako, da je preostali del ostal v enem kosu)
/ and cut them out (I managed to keep the remaining part in one piece)


izrez sem položila na folijo in natisnila srčkast vzorec s Penny Black štampiljko
/ I placed the cut-out piece on the shrink plastic and stamped the heart pattern using a Penny Black stamp



občrtala z debelejšim črnim flomastrom
/ drew a line around them with a thicker black marker


pobarvala
/ coloured


in segrela
/ and heated


Preden sem očistila in pospravila štampiljko, sem "posrčkala" še nekaj kljukic :)
/ Before I cleaned the stamp and put it away, I "heart-stamped" some clothes-pegs :)

Skrčka


Pa ne tista iz šolske telovadnice izpred... khm let, ampak tista zabavna, na katero se riše, štemplja, barva, potem pa se na toploti skrči na manjši, bolj skoncentriran motivček - ravno prav za mojo obsedenost s pomanjševanjem :)

In tako sem jaz danes, na najbolj vroč dan v letu, izbrala ustvarjanje, pri katerem sem potrebovala najbolj vroče orodje iz moje "delavnice"... No, saj samo segrevanje je trajalo zelo malo časa, vse ostalo pa je bilo tako čisto pravo poletno igračkanje.


Moji Penny Black motivi so se spremenili v take srčkane žetončke, najverjetneje pa bodo šli od hiše kot obeski za ključe ali telefon.

Prvo rundo sem pustila nepobarvano, tiste še neskrčene pa bom mogoče pred segrevanjem pobarvala, čeprav nisem čisto prepričana, ker so mi črno-beli skoraj preveč všeč.



SHRINKIES

Made of shrink plastic - it is so much fun to draw, stamp and colour it, and is, when heated, shrunk to a smaller, more concentrated motive; just the right thing for my obsession with reducing things :)

So today, on the hottest day of the year, I chose the crafting where I needed the hottest tool from my "tool-shed"... Well, the heating itself didn't take much time, and the rest of it was just plain summer playtime.


My Penny Black motives turned into these little cuties, and most probably they will be made into key rings or mobile phone dangles.

I left the first round uncoloured. I might colour those that are not yet shrunk, but I am not totally sure because I like black and white ones almost too much.

Kot otrok...


... sem že cel dan vzhičena nad tem, kar me je danes čakalo v nabiralniku.

Zdaj vem, kako izgleda kila perlic v živo.

In zdaj bi morala na ebayu najti samo še kako ugodno ponudbo vzporednega časa :)


I've been thrilled like a child all day long over today's contents of the post box.

Now I know how a kilo of beads looks like in nature.

And now I would only have to browse ebay for some good offer of parallel time :)

Popolnoma logično


Popolnoma logično je, da nisem ostala pri eni beležki.
/ It is only logical that I had to made another one.

Popolnoma logično je, da sem uporabila barve, ki so mi ljube. In gumbe. In trakce.
/ It is only logical that I used the colours I like. And buttons. And ribbons.


Popolnoma logično je, da je beležka manjša od prejšnje.
/ It is only logical that I made this one smaller than the first one.


In popolnoma logično je, da sem šla včeraj v kino.
/ And it is only logical that I went to the cinema yesterday.

Kovačeva kobila


Ob vseh škatlah, albumih in knjižicah, ki sem jih naredila zadnje čase, je bilo že kar malo čudno (smešno, skoraj neverjetno), da sem svoje ideje pisala na listke in jih puščala vsepovsod, namesto da bi jih lepo in urejeno imela zbrane v eni beležki.

Zato sem šla malo pobrskat po kupu starih zvezkov. Moja prva ugotovitev je bila, da sem bila hrčkarica že takrat, ko še sploh nisem vedela, da se temu tako reče. Upam si celo trditi, da izraz še sploh ni obstajal. Moja druga ugotovitev je bila, da sem si skozi leta iz najrazličnejših virov (beri: trgovin, knjigarn, podstrešij...) nabrala prav krasno zbirko zvezkov in beležk z različnimi debelinami, teksturami, vzorci papirjev.


Vzela sem od vsakega nekaj strani in jih narezala na velikost 14 x 9,5 cm - tako sem imela najboljši izkoristek. Luknje sem naredila kar z navadnim luknjačem.


Liste sem zložila tako, da je vsak naslednji list drugačen od prejšnjega (saj vem, da mi ne bi bilo treba), dodala platnice iz kartona in jih spela z dvema obročkoma.


Za platnice sem se kar nekaj časa odločala, ali hočem imeti beležko bolj sončno ali bolj nočno.


Zmagalo je sonce.

Mravljinček mi je rekel, naj ne pretiravam z okraševanjem, zato sem dodala samo napis, pa malo sem si dala duška s trakci.


Zdaj moram pa samo še vse tiste listke najti... :)


COBBLER'S CHILDREN GO BAREFOOT

Considering the number of boxes, albums and booklets I've made recenlty, it was already a bit strange (funny, almost incredible) that I kept jotting down my own ideas on various pieces of paper and leaving them scattered around, instead of having them - nice and neatly - gathered in one notebook.

So I went searching through a pile of old notebooks. First of all, I found out that I was an obsessed gatherer even when I had no idea that there is an expression for it. And second of all, I found out that throughout the years, I managed to collect from various sources (as in shops, bookstores, attics...) a great collection of notebooks and papers with a great variety in thickness, textures, patterns.

I took a few pages of each paper and cut them to the size 14 x 9.5 cm - this way I got the most of it. I punched out the holes with my ordinary office puncher. I assembled the papers by taking one from each pile at a time, so no two adjacent papers are the same (I know I wouldn't have to), added two pieces of cardboard for the front and the back cover and put everything together using two book rings.

I spent quite some time deciding whether I want my notebook to have a sunny or more nightish look.

The Sun prevailed.

My DH said I shouldn't overdo it with decorations, so I only added the title, and I went a bit "wild" with ribbons.

And now I only have to find all those scribblings of mine... :)

Še nekaj jih bo


Pretežno modrih.
Črnih perlic za "hm, jaz bi jo tudi rabila" je še nekaj v škatlicah :)
Pa zlatih, pa belih, pa prozornih...

Pa za na žico


Poletje bo prekratko...


THERE WILL BE A FEW MORE

Mostly blue ones.
There are some more black beads for "hm, I would need one, too", still in their boxes :)
And golden, and white, and transparent ones...

And for the wire

Summer will be too short...

Sivka in čipka


Na današnjem kofetkanju naše "triperesne deteljice" sta me Urška in Lidija razveselili z darili za rojstni dan: Lidija mi je naredila krasen klekljan obesek iz žičke in s kristalčki, Urška pa mi je s svojega zadnjega potovanja v najbolj vijolično francosko pokrajino prinesla koledar za naslednje leto. Šopek na fotki je pridelek z vrta mravljinčkove mame.



Lavender and lace

Our "three-leaf clover" met today for coffee and Urška and Lidija brought me presents for my birthday: Lidija made a wonderful wire lace pendant with crystals, and Urška brought me, from her last trip to the purplest French region, a calendar for next year. The bouquet in the photo is from the garden of my hubby's mom.
