Shhh… Can I tell you a secret?

With Valentine’s Day close I want to talk about it. OK, write about it. ☺

If you didn’t know that Valentine’s Day is this Saturday you probably haven’t open any online media or social network, they tend to go more and more hyper about this day as it approaches. I’m not gonna go in the “hate it or love it” debate, neither I’m gonna say that whether single or in a relationship you don’t need a day to appreciate people you love, and most definitely I won’t say that you as a person are so incredible and enough and whole even tho I mean it. Ops, I said it. πŸ˜‰

I’m just gonna say something.

Valentine’s Day is like Santa for adults.

It’s made by companies to make us buy moreΒ shit stuff.

Lets be honest, if companies could make 10 more “holidays” just to sell specific items – they would do it! They would. Like in that song…

“What’s love gotta do with it, gotta do with it…”

Almost nothing. The thing that is good from it that it is a reminder not to take our loved ones for granted. And also, we all love getting stuff. I know I do. πŸ˜€

If you have zero balance on your account but still want to give something to your loved one(s), I will share the pillow I made for my friend’s baby girl. It was the first time I tried this specific sewing method so it turned out GREAT. You can use any fabric you want, as long as it is easy to sew… Oh, and you’re gonna need to cut open a few of your stuffed animals. You’re gonna feel sorry (At least I did) but it’s for the greater good. πŸ˜‰

I took a red cotton shirt and cut out the edges. Then I wrote her name following the lines I placed with thin black marker. Then I made the shape of a heart inside out and sew it that way, it just looks better when you do it that way. In the bag next to it on the third photo is my “stuffing”. I left the bottom open, turn the heart on the right side, place the stuffing and then sew the end by hand.

Finished! πŸ™‚ The baby body next to it was the other part of my gift. I decoupaged the lines from my friend’s favorite show The Big Bang Theory. πŸ™‚

Do It Yourself: Earrings!

Do It Yourself: Earrings!

Hiya! πŸ™‚

I have started to make ideas that were piling up in my head in actual items… And gathering all the stuff I need for the pre – Christmas projects and decorations. Yaaay! πŸ˜€

I made this earrings in my head first, I knew exactly how i wanted them to look like. Then in my luck, I have found awesome girl who helped me in finding all the specific parts, some of what she already had because she makes jewelry on her own. Beautiful jewelry if I can add. I think she ships only in Croatia but if you want to check her work out, go on this link: Le Chic.

I made this Christmas earrings – that’s how I call them – in about an hour, not calculating the time i thought I can add something with nail polishing the pendants… but that was a mistake. :mrgreen: Except for a strong glue (I use glue for wood) I didn’t need really nothing else. I removed the hooks from earrings I will not use and glue zircons on the metallic/silver base. I put the big heart and small heart as a pendants – I made sure that will be possible when I was putting the zircons. The last step was to glue the hooks behind and voila! my Christmas earrings are done. I love them πŸ™‚

What do you think? They will go perfectly with a sweater I bought which is blue and has big white heart from fake furΒ in the middle. It is hand-made and absolutely amazing. So, I’m going in the hand-made zone more and more, I ain’t even glancing behind… πŸ˜€
