Hi. How was your week? As you know I was in Valencia and I'll tell you all about it a bit later, first I have to tell you about ARTish.

ARTish is a lot more than just another Fair. ARTish is a place where people can rest their eyes on beautiful pieces made by Slovenian artists and is a place for a chat, a place to share ideas and used clothes and learn something new in lots of creativity workshops.

I'm very very happy to be a part of next ARTish which will take place tomorrow in Ljubljana's Gornji trg between 9 AM and 8 PM. More HERE and HERE

I hope to see you tomorrow! Have a great wekend! It's going to be hot in Ljubljana.

Destination: Valencia

This was a last minute decision and those are the best, don't you think? I have no turist guides, no plans. Only yesterday I found out that it's going to be F1 in Valencia's port this weekend and of course it's also football and Spain is playing. Great for all sports enthusiasts, which I'm not! 

I do have a bit of problem what to pack. I always say I'm not taking a lot of stuff, but then end up taking a lot more that I need. Sounds familiar? 

I'll be back on June the 27th. Until then, have a great time!

Hot summer day

Today the summer has officialy started. It has been very hot for about a week now here with temperatures up to 34 degrees Celsius (93,2 Farenheit)! Hot, hot, hot. Today I took my Irish for a bit of refreshment in the river. She definitely enjoyed it!

At one point the ball sank into the bottom and Flora said she is not a fish. So a girl has to do, what a girl has to do to save a ball :)) This is what my trousers look liked afterwards. 

Note to myself: next time take a ball that floats! This was not the first time I was rescuing this ball. Once I almost left my boots in the muddy river. I guess I'm getting older, my memory is not what it used to be. Who am I kidding, my memory was never any good!

So, tell me what do you do in those hot summer days? What works for you? Do you have any pets? How do they bear heat?

Happy summer to all!

Photo shooting & modeling

I have used Ljubljana's old part of town for shooting photos of my bags many times. I feel that bags look more interesting if the background is not white. Don't get me wrong, I love white background, it look so profesional, but I don't have much space and light for making good photos.

Last Saturday was so sunny I decided to go out into the city center and make a few shoots.

All along I knew that if I sell bags, I need photos wearing them. It's not enough if the description says hight is so and so in cms, width is so in so in cms, no, there need to be photos wearing them as well. I was very reluntant to be the model, but hey, someone has to do it :) So, here goes. Thanx Mojca for photographing.

I totaly forgot that there will be an Art Market, so there was a lot of people. I met Anja again. Do you know Anja Slapničar's pottery? It's absolutely beautiful! I had to have one of her cups. Here's one idea how to use pottery :)

Have a nice week!

Ikea shopping

I'm not blogging as I would like to. There is so many things going on, I just don't have time. This time I would like to show you a few things I bought at Ikea.

I needed free standing lamp for reading in bed. This is what I bought

I would like to have wall of frames. I already have some great prints I bought at Etsy and they are finally framed. Still not on the wall though.

A few plastic bins, so practical. I wish I bought more!

And finally this step stool. At the moment it is in one corner of the living room, but I know it will come handy someday ;)

Have a great time!

Terrific week

It was an amazing, terrific week or should I say past few days. Fist I was a part of wonderful Art fair in local park on Thursday afternoon. It rained twice, but we weren't discouraged.

Actually it was so many of us, we had to share stalls. I shared mine with wonderful Ajda from P!ka.Za piko na i

I finally had a chance to met Anja, who makes lovely pottery

It was such a nice afternoon. A lot of people, nice energy, a few sales. At the end of the day I was tired, but extremly happy. If you missed it, don't worry, next Art Fair in park Tabor will be held first Saturdays in July, August and September.

On Friday morning when I took a look if anything is new in my Etsy shop, I was thrilled to found out I made two sales! In next 6 hours I made another one. And this morning I made another two. That's 5 sales in 24 hours! Amazing!! I opened my Etsy shop about a year ago and for one straight year I didn't make a single sale. At the end of May I was thinking how happy it would make me if I could make at least 1 sale per week. Well, the start of June was above all expectations.

Enough of bragging, I have so many things to do. Fist on the list is cutom made cell phone bag, order some material, list new items to my Etsy shop... Before I leave, let me show you what I made this morning. A few mini frame purses. They're so cute, aren't they? Cute as a cupcake :)

Until next time, have a nice time!
