דברים שעושים לי את זה: שאבי שיק, תמונות להשראה shabby chic

רויטל, איזה יופי של פוסט. רק לפעם הבאה אני חושבת שיהיה יותר מגניב אם תשתמשי בתמונות שונות לעברית ולאנגלית.
תודה על ההשראה :)

Swap what? SWAP-BOT

I'm a member in swap-bot for quite a while now, and I love it!!! I love happy mail day, when I'm coming home and I have some packages waiting for me! It is so much fun to open and see what other people did for me and how they deiced to spoil me. I will honest, I never been flacked by any one but few times I got some 'lets put some cheep staff together and send it away'... and some time I got beautiful staff that I was left with words of thanks!

And why I tell you all about it? Because there is a great give away on swap bot. The glitter give away, and I love glitter on my Christmas staff, so, here I am spreading the word about swap bot and about this great give away... Take a look, you might fall in love as well :-)

It is my favorite time of the year. I love the fall.

Love the crisp air, the leaves that changing from green to bright red, orange, yellow and even purple! Ahh, autumn. if you could stay forever :-)

So, when I heard about the 'Autumn swap' in 'Frida and Numa' you bet I joined right away :-)

Need some inspiration?

Some time we have lots of inspiration to craft and work, some time the Muse going for a vacation leaving us behind... In 'Frida and Numa' we had an inspiration swap. We were asked to make something that will inspire our partner. I know I always get inspired by a good word... So, I went
'quote hunting'. I found this quote on a card and I fell in love with the wise words:

"Happiness is like a butterfly,
the more you chase it, the more it will elude you,
but if you turn your attention to other things,
it will come and sit softly on your shoulder..." (Thrneau)

I bought the card and cut it to strips, paint the canvas blue and using 'Tim Holtz' mask I added some interest. Using an old book I got from the second hand shop I cut a flower. For the center I used a big circle brad and a flower brad over a black card stock. I stamped some butterflies and used a glitter black embossing powder to give them a shine.

Hope my partner will find it inspirational as I did.

What do you have in your pockets???

Ever since I've seen the magnetic board Keren-Parparim made I knew that some day I'll make something like that!

Well, this day came few weeks ago when I signed in to a 'pockets' swap. I thought first to make a board using a pink-green combination but after visiting the west side of Canada I came up with the cowgirl look... I really enjoy making the board and making the flower was real fun. For the center of the flowers I cut some circles and used white buttons.

I got a message saying that my partner really liked the pocket-board... :-)

Summer.. I'm not a real summer person. I can't take the heat too well... Yes, I know. I grew up in Israel which is a very hot place, I should LOVE the heat... but I don't. I love summer food, summer colors and I love the sun... but I don't like the heat at all! I prefer -40 C and not +40C...

We had a summer swap in 'Frida and Numa'. In Israel every one are going to the beach (mostly on the weekend but you can see people during the week as well). I love going to the beach (early in the morning or late in the after noon - just not in the heat of the day!) and just be there, enjoy the warm water, the warm sand and the beautiful sun sets!

I made a beach bag for my partner. I used a heavy duty fabric for the outside, which have a bright color to it and lined it with a cotton fabric. On the out side I've sewn a big pocket to put extra staff in. Miri, who got my bag sent me a message telling me she loved it and really happy with the swap.

Here some pictures for you to enjoy...

Are you a summer person? What do you like or dislike about Summer?
