I have a bad habit and it’s the fact that i always get my inspirations too late. Never had the time to do it, ON time! Now, all the Christmas decorations are up, but at least i know what i want for next year, because i know that next year i won’t have the time either!
There’s nothing more beautiful to the eye than simplicity and natural colors. I always loved the combination of craft paper, some green and some black. It doesn’t get better than this! I’m even so inspired i might even use this as inspiration to wrap my shop packages! 
Each year, in my whole life, since i was a kid and lived with my parents till today i am a married woman, our Christmas tree was a traditional one. Yes, with lots of toys, red and gold ornaments, huge and completely full! I’m not complaining, my husband and i love the traditional Christmas decorations but for once, i’d love to try something more simple. Stay to wooden, beige and white simple decorations. Maybe next year (hubby already approved!) 
And with less decoration, i’d love a smaller but natural tree in a pot! We have a huge one, which is, trust me, huge! But it’s fake. I long for the day we have a natural one, i missed the smell of that Christmas tree waking up in the morning with a hot chocolate. 
Tried them this year too, you might remember from this post and sprayed them white, but with some random life events (moving out again) i wasn’t in the mood to do anything more with them than just place them on the table. I liked these, that are still so natural as a garland. I’ll definitely try them next year. 
But if you’re trying it this year, let me share a little tip i found out: When we gathered the pine cones, my husband had the brilliant idea to wash them. So after a couple of hours we found them all closed! They somehow do that yeah. I believe that you should wash them, because that way you’ll take away all the dust but after, just put them in the oven! Just like you would do with the chicken. In a high temperature and wrap them in a foil if you want to. Just remember to leave some space between them because they’ll open up a lot!
Golden is till my favorite. Gold and sparkles! Yes, i should make a note to myself that next year, i should get out and found me some of these lovely golden decorations. The glass element on this ones, is my favorite actually!  
I made some yarn pom poms for my wedding this year. You can see the DIY here, but with moving in to a new house and now trying to move out again, i couldn’t keep my mind in my head and think of doing this so amazing idea! Pom pom wreath! It looks like little snow flakes doesn’t it? Welcome to my next year list!

It was a great few months with my shop, i couldn’t even imagine all the support i had and that it would be such a success! I decided to close my shop in a few days for vacation. Yes to rest, and because all of my items are out of stock. Will be coming back with some great new and old items! SHOP NOW!

Have been a little obsessed with the new Throw Pillows from Society6 lately. Were to find a better place and range for some really cool pillows if not by your favorite artists? I went in for some “Christmas Shopping” today and it was really difficult to find one favorite. So at least i made a… Read more »

Have been a little obsessed with the new Throw Pillows from Society6 lately. Were to find a better place and range for some really cool pillows if not by your favorite artists? I went in for some “Christmas Shopping” today and it was really difficult to find one favorite. So at least i made a Top 8 of favorites! In the end i only realized that all of them were black & whites. Oh well, i guess i should embrace the fact that i’m too much into black! 
And of course, i couldn’t resist some cute pillows that would be a great choice for a future baby room maybe? At least for now, they are a great Christmas present! 

I was going to make a quickie  inspiration post today, but instead i take the time and slow a bit down to catch up with you guys!

I was going to make a quickie  inspiration post today, but instead i take the time and slow a bit down to catch up with you guys! Remember the how i talked about the Animal Rescue in Kefalonia (the island we’re living now)? Well, my husband and i, been working like crazy all week preparing some nice things for it! Hubs is building a new website for them, making a new Facebook Page and i made a poster and some cards for the upcoming Christmas bazaar we’re having in order to raise some money for the homeless dogs and cats. 
We’re dreaming very big, because hubby and i are preparing a universal donation (and a Etsy donation on my shop) to try and raise as much as week. Soon, i’ll make a video too, and i’m sure you’ll all understand why we all work so hard. And i’, really counting on you for your help and support. It is crucial our voices to be heard all over the world. 
Our week also included a lot of Christmasy mood too! We put up our Christmas tree and i made some special Christmas packaging on my Christmas orders (they look so cheerful!) And of course, our cat Shrek couldn’t resist but climbing on it, on the very first night! Thankfully he no longer pays any attention to it! 
As any of you who follows me on Instagram, you’ll probably have already understood my weakness to it. It is weird but in a way there are many people i consider be friends of mine, and it truly makes my day learning about how they’re doing. So as Holidays have arrived, i thought about making a gift to my friends and followers by having a special Giveaway
So, the story goes like this: 
Once, i reach 2013 followers on Instagram, (currently 1997) i’ll announce the beginning of the Giveaway! All you have to do, is to follow me (if you’re already a follower, then Thank you!), like and leave a message below, so i know that you want to participate! 
What’s the prize?

It’s a very special statement necklace from my shop, actually one of a kind, which isn’t in the shop and will never be! Yes it’s braided, and the color is nude beige, my best seller and at the moment out of stock!  
How long will the Giveaway last? 
24 hours! Yes it’s a quickie, i can’t wait too long to see who wins it!

Happy December and Happy Holidays! One of my favorite tradition as a kid, was of course writing my letter to Mr. Santa! I even remember when i woke up and saw the exact gift i had asked him under the tree, oh i was so happy! That’s why i thought it would be nice to design a printable letter for you, and a unique way kids will love it! They always want to look older right? Now they can fill their own form / letter and letting you know, what presents they want! 
I’ve also tried to translate them (with the help of Google Translate) to random languages. Now, if you print it and see any mistakes in your language, please you can send me an email and i’ll correct it and will immediately upload it. Enjoy!! 

I can’t believe it’s already December! I’ve been so busy all this time with random stuff and i’m sure you’ll all understand. But i’m back this happy month with many holiday freebies and projects that you and your kids will love. I’ll be on some maintenance today, since i finally got the time to update… Read more »

I can’t believe it’s already December! I’ve been so busy all this time with random stuff and i’m sure you’ll all understand. But i’m back this happy month with many holiday freebies and projects that you and your kids will love. I’ll be on some maintenance today, since i finally got the time to update my blog and portfolio. 
And, we’ll be decorating our Christmas tree today! Watching that video we made a year ago i can’t believe how many things have changed since then. I’m so blessed for all the things that have happened, getting married, moving to a beautiful island and all the wonderful things i have accomplished. 
One thing i’m also grateful, is for being part of Natasha’s Blog in the “How did you do it?” series. You should definitely check out her blog, she’s so close to what my style is and i totally relate to all her posts. You can read my interview right here
And also, here’s a treat for you, just right in time for the Holiday! You can use the coupon HOLIDAY12 in my shop on the checkout. 
I also decided today to upload the “It’s in the Stars” i had made on my in  Society6. To be honest i really liked the outcome! They also added pillows in their products which is kinda my favorite. Would you consider me too full of myself if i told you that i’m totally in love with the grey version for the iphone case
