Happy holydays!

I wish happy holydays to everyone! Hope you are having a great time!
Now I want to show you what I made last week. As a decoration for the Christmas table I decorated a new candle with decoupage technique. I used a napkin with Christmas motif.
I also made a Christmas card with crocheted gift on it. This card is traveling in Belgrade and maybe is already there. Hope they will like it.
I made some Christmas gifts for my friends, but for now I’m showing you just this one. It’s a mobile pouch. I made two of them, one for me and one for a friend.
In the back side I sewed a button.

And this is mine pouch:

Cards with Christmas Tree Motif

Few years ago on Ravelry I found a pattern for Christmas Tree Motif and made couple of them. They seemed small to me and I changed the pattern for a bigger Christmas Tree Motif. I used the Christmas Trees as an ornaments attached on a curtain. 
Now I made two Christmas tree with thin thread to attach on a paper card. I decorate the card with a ribbon and glitter glue. The height of these trees is 6 cm. You can see the pattern for a bigger tree below the photos.

Here Is the pattern for a bigger Christmas Tree:

Wine card collection

I made the first two cards this winter for Valentines Day. I made the third one for our neighbor's saint's day: A few days ago a friend from our neighborhood came in our house for some coffee & gossip chat. She said that she likes my decoupage candle and that she would like to have something made with decoupage technique. I decided to make a card for her and here it is (the third one). Maybe I will change the present because I have time till their saint's day to buy a candle holder and candle and decoupage it.

Christmas cards 2

When I finished the candle I continued to work with decoupage technique. Always when New Year is on the doorstep I'm saying to myself that I should have made Christmas cards :) That's why I started to make them earlier. First I made one, but after that I made a whole collection :) I used parts from one napkin and a glitter glue at the end. I left the cards dry so I can take a photo of them. And here they are :D

Decoupage Candle

Tomorrow is our saint's day and everybody in the house is occupied with the preparations. Yesterday was a sunny day and I was cleaning the house. After the hard work, while I was resting I got an idea how to decorate the candle that I bought before a month. I was tired, but then I forgot about the tiredness and started to craft. I started to browse in my napkins and I chose one that matched with the candle holder. 
I like the final product and I think that I will buy more candles to decorate them for all ocassions :)

Blue afghan

This weekend I got some new blue yarn from drenka and had to try it. I found a beautiful bolero on ravelry, but on the page with the pattern  there were a lot of similar patterns. I found the one that I liked and started to crochet. After few rounds of crocheting I noticed that I started a wrong pattern :)) Then I found the right one and finished it. I plan to use this afghan as a decoration on a sew bag or I will make more afghans like this and make something nice.
I hope that you will see my new bolero soon ;)

Gordeliciousstudio 2

You don't have to be patient any more. I finished the third image, but the girl on the fashion runway  isn't me :)) This evening I planed to crochet something, but I changed the plan and started to draw :) I made this image more different than the others, maybe because of the time distance... 
So I like to finish my unfinished things and I like how it turned out.

Gordeliciousstudio 1

Three years ago I got an inspiration from some vladstudio wallpapers with "The two". I loved them and started to make a similar image. During my work, while I was making the first image I got another idea and I couldn't wait to do it. Here are both images. The girl in them is me, knitting with my own yarn :)) 
have a third image also, but it's not finished yet, you must be patient. ;)

Heart cards

Lately I'm making paper cards and when I go to a bookstore I always look for new things that I don't have. A month ago I bought new purple cardboard, but I didn't use it and now was the perfect time for that. Yesterday while I was enjoying the beginning of the weekend I got a desire to make a new card. I thought of the purple cardboard and started to work. First I chose the colours of the materials, then planed out how the card will look like and then started to work. At the end I put a silver glitter glue. Now I can't stop staring at my new cards. :)

Blue box

First I have to tell you all, thank you for your advices, I used them on my blue box and I am so happy because I loooove how it turned. Now I have a desire to buy plenty boxes and to design them.
This night while I was doing nothing I decided to design the last box that I had and to use your advices. I didn't regret.
First I opened my box with napkins and at once I found the real napkin for my box. I cut it, I put a little bit of decoupage glue on the box with a paintbrush, and than I put the napkin on it. I was doing that piece by piece and at the end I put a glue on the box where I didn't had a napkin. After that I put a glue over the napkin and in that moment I felt like a magician. The napkin wasn't moving, it wasn't furrowed, I didn't got bubbles and white parts, it was all blue. :)
I feel great! I think I am on the right way!!! :)) Thanks!!!

New decoupage gift boxes

I was very satisfied how my first box came out, so I decide to make a new one. I bought few boxes with  different colour and I was thinking what to put on them. I was looking over my napkins and finally found the perfect ones. The napkin was moving and at the end I got some bubbles. After all I'm satisfied how they look like and I hope that in the future I will make them even better.

Crocheted cards

This summer I was invited to a wedding celebration. My friend was getting married, and I wanted to make him a beautiful, special, cool, unique card. First I made one card, but it was not good enough  for him, it wasn't HIM. Then I made another, but again I had the same thought. The third card that I imagined in my mind was perfect for him. It was the first card that I made with a crocheted clothes. I must tell you that they liked my card, they said that it is original... I was so happy! :D 
After a few weeks I was invited at a birthday party for a little girl that turned one year. For this occasion I made a similar card. They liked the card, they sad that it was the best card that she got. :D

Green decoupage box

This is the first box that I made with decoupage technique. It all started when I went to the new mall, full with new things and there saw this little green box .Than the idea came to me, I thought of my napkins with camels and I said to my self: that's it!
The dimension of the box is 8,5 x 8,5cm. I' am satisfied how I made it. I don't like that the top of the box is little furrowed, but that is because of the great winds that are coming from northwest :)
