visiting Dagmara

The life took over and a thick layer of dust covered the blog… I like to stay busy, but not too busy.
Today, I thought that I’ll finally share a new place in the blogging world –>> Dagmara’s (Daga’s) blog about Norway. She can take you for awesome trips and teach you Norwegian.
We met 15 years ago, when we were still little kids. We were on a 2 week trip in the Polish mountains. We stayed in touch every now and then, and then, around a year ago or so we reconnected again.
Now, she’s tempting me with her blog to visit her in Norway, her new home.

I znowu życie wzięło górę a blog obrósł grubym kożuchem z kurzu… Nie potrafię siedzieć bezczynnie, ale brak czasu na “kartkowanie” zaczyna mnie powoli wykańczać…
Od jakiegoś czasu odwiedzam w sieci nowe miejsce i planowałam się z Wami podzielić ale jakoś  nigdy nie było okazji. Otóż, taka jedna Dagmara, zaczęła się dzielić swoim nowym domem, który znalazła w Norwegii. Z Dagą znamy się już prawie 15 lat i dawniej utrzymywałyśmy kontakt od czasu do czasu. Gdzieś około rok temu odświeżyłyśmy naszą znajomość i pozostajemy w kontakcie. Teraz ona kusi mnie ślicznymi fotkami na blogu do odwiedzenia jej w Norwegii. Co ja tu się bedę tu rozczulać, sami zobaczcie –>> Dagmara w Norwegii.
Może wy albo ktoś z waszych znajomych wybiera się do Norwegii. Bardzo polecam :)

clay play and other stories…

Sorry, no Halloween cards :( Since I’m Polish I kind of don’t get this holiday. For us it’s a quiet, grave time.
Instead of making Halloween cards I decided to take some photos. I thought the light was pretty ok so I set my “studio” on the dining table :) Before I really wanted to shoot my cards in the light tent, but I kind of don’t like that final, “artificial” look that I’m getting :( I think I’m not doing it completely right so I decided to stick to the dining table :)
Sometimes ago I’ve mentioned that I made cute buttons out of polymer clay. After the first round I was wondering…hmm, what should I do now?…but the second round came out quite pretty :)

I treated them with some pearl pigment and then sprayed a glossy coat. Hope you can see it better below

I’m so ready to use them on my cards!
so, speaking (I mean writing :) ) about the cards, here is another one to share:


love the heart charm hiding close to the flowers, I think I got the whole pack from a party store, but not sure.
hope I didn’t bore you too much :)

come back

It’s hard to come back here after two weeks. It’s seems like ages…
I’ve made a few new things but my camera and I don’t like each other lately. Photos are so crappy. Every time when I try to shoot, it feels to me like I would hold the camera the first time  :( Tomorrow I’ll try to put something new. Hope the photos I took today are not as bad…

The Last Song

It’s been over a week now since I can’t make anything, but that’s a long story… But there is a good side of having time off from crafting :)
I got the chance to watch some movies. Nothing new, but good. One day I watched “The Notebook”. It was a great movie, but pretty sad though :( I would definitely recommend it if you haven’t watched it yet :) And today I just finished watching “The Last Song”. Another sad movie but also worth watching. I won’t write too much about the movies. It’s card time :)

I still have some photos which need photoshop, so here is a card that was lucky last time :)

On the background some of my handmade paper. It’s much nicer in real, the photo doesn’t show its beauty :(

I also marked the photo with my name but it seems to me a bit too big. However I can’t change it since I’ve deleted the original (upsss:))
I’ll make it small next time. What do you think?
