The weather is against me. I need some pine cones for my Christmas decor, but it's too wet to gather them. This is why there's no blog post about my creative space today. I'm just waiting for the rain to stop.

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!

Let it snow

Wednesday, 25 November 2009

It's time for window shopping on Etsy. I wish these snowflakes on my blog could turn into some real snow on the ground. Will keep fingers crossed.

I'm much better today - herbs, honey and cranberries are doing their job well and I think treasury making is helping a little too. This one just had to be Latvian ('smukums' means prettiness):

Have a nice weekend!

My creative space

Thursday, 19 November 2009

My creative space isn't very creative this week. I've got cold. Herb infusion, honey and cranberries have become my best friends. Nevertheless I've been scribbling in my notebook now and then. This is one of those times when dizzy head makes me feel like finding a secret drawer full of forgotten things. Not sure whether I'll implement any of these ideas, but it's fun (and perhaps has some therapeutic effect too).

To play along and see more creative places visit kirsty.

I'm off to make another mug of herb infusion.

Stars and lobsters

I missed treasuries several times, so this one was stuck in the poster sketch for a few days. However yesterday I managed to catch treasury west. Yay! Inspired by the window shopping from last week.

Featured shops: kittyrogers, RedWineDesign, stuffbykate, IstanbulDesigns, belleslettres, BagatellesAndCo, pelpa, RageoftheAge, adornbyamysingley, TheLoudLion, KnotOriginal, Londonfinery

Happy birthday Latvia!

My creative space

Thursday, 12 November 2009

Today I'm struggling with photography. It feels like a struggle sometimes, especially when you're trying to shoot by natural light and heavy clouds full of snow are wondering in the sky waiting to burst open. Tried different backgrounds, changed rooms... Almost gave up... And then my eyes were caught by that mother of pearl - one of those beautiful things you keep just because they are beautiful. Haven't finished the shooting and editing yet, but it looks like I might end up with some good enough photos.

Art Nouveau

Wednesday, 11 November 2009

It's time for window shopping and this week I want to show you some beautiful Art Nouveau inspired creations. I've always had a soft spot for this style, its motives and palettes, the era in general and I'm glad there are so many Etsy artists who do the same.

And - this should be mentioned - Riga is famous for its beautiful Art Nouveau architecture, so if you happen to be in the capital of Latvia take a stroll through the old town, but don't forget to look for some Art Nouveau as well.

Today is OK

Shabby chic hearts

Saturday, 7 November 2009

These are the finished Christmas ornaments I posted about on Thursday. Already listed in my shop.

Paldies, Alise!

A few days ago my Happy white necklace was featured on Etsy front page thanks to sweet Alise from XauXau. Her shop is closed at the moment, but I can't wait to see her back on Etsy with new creations inspired by the time spent in the Netherlands. Etsy is an addiction, isn't it? Thank you Alise! Paldies!

My creative space

Thursday, 5 November 2009

This morning the ground was covered with snow again. Not much, but enough to brighten up the day and make me count how many days there are left until Christmas. 50! My creative space this week is the whole house which I've turned into little factory of Christmas ornaments. Today on the list is some sanding of polymer clay hearts in my living room.
