Quilled number for Valentine

First I`ve made this "card" as a table number, last summer. This winter I saw how great it fits for a Valentine card, since TWO means couple.
Of course, a couple with a baby is THREE and so on...
We are only TWO so this is our Valentine number :)

Am facut "felicitarea" aceasta ca numar de masa, vara trecuta. Acum am vazut ce bine se potriveste ca felicitare de Sf Valentin, din moment ce DOI inseamna cuplu.
Bineinteles, un cuplu cu un copil ar fi TREI si asa mai departe...
Noi suntem doar DOI asa ca acesta e numarul nostru de Sf Valentin :)

This table number it`s a beauty, so romantic... As a guest I`d be thrilled to have something like this in front of my eyes while enjoying the party. Here are some details.
E o frumusete numarul acesta de masa, atat de romantic... Ca invitat la o nunta as fi in extaz sa vad pe masa o altfel de minunatie cat ma bucur de petrecere.Iata si cateva detalii.

This, with other colors, would be a great project for the no red/pink/hearts Valentine challenge from Pritesh` blog. But... I have some others projects I work on so... maybe you`ll try this idea.
Creatia aceasta, dar cu alte culori ar fi un proiect super pentru provocarea cu tema de Sf Valentin, dar fara rosu/roz/inimi de pe blogul Pritesh` blog. Dar... am alte proiecte la care lucrez, asa ca poate incercati voi ideea asta.

A lot of snow!

E o gramada de zapada afara, frumoasa si stralucitoare. Ati observat ce frumos stralucesc fulgii de zapada in lumina? Ador frumusetea lor! Ieri cand m-am trezit si i-am vazut mi-am zis ca neaprat trebuie sa mai postez cel putin inca o felicitare cu fulgi.
There`s a lot of snow outside, beautiful and sparkling. Have you noticed the way snoflakes shine when falling down from the sky? Oh I just love these beauty! Yesterday mornig when I woke up and saw them I told myself I have to post at least one more card with snowflakes.

Pe acceasta am facut-o din fulgii aceia mici albastri (va amintiti de ei, ii puteti vedea aici). Am asa o senzatie placuta ca dincolo de vremea friguroasa si de intunecimea zilelor prea scurte din timpul iernii zapada vine ca un dar ca sa ne faca iarna mai placuta daca tot exista anotimpuri...
This one I`ve made from those little blue ones (do you remember them, here they are).I have such a great feeling that beyond cold weather and short days snow is a great gift to make our winter more pleasent, since we have seasons...

Cum v-am spus, o GRAMADA de zapada (nu m-am putut abtine sa nu va arat macar poza asta din cele pe care le-am facut).
As I told you - a LOT of snow (I just couldn`t help myself from showing you this picture)

Aveti zapada acolo unde locuiti acum?
Do you have snow where you live right now?

Valentine quilling card

Of course, I prepared some red hearts for this year Valentine, such a clichee but yet such a big demand. And for these one I added some feathers too... so let me know what you think :)
Clar, am pregatit inimi rosii pentru Valentine-ul de anul acesta, un cliseu dar totodata si un detaliu care are multa cerere. Si acestor inimi le-am adaugat si niste pene... asa ca vreau sa stiu ce credeti.

Feathers are delicate and make me think of Cupidon.
Penele sunt delicate si ma fac sa ma gandesc la Cupidon.

Yesterday I cleaned up some folders with pictures from last year and by mistake I deleted some. I beleieve having a blog is sometimes a good archive for me. Even so I don`t feel safe...
Ieri faceam curat in niste foldere cu poze de anul trecut si din greseala le-am sters pe unele. De aceea cred ca blogul e o metoda buna de arhivare, desi nu ma simt in siguranta nici cu asta...

Quilled cat and roses

He he! Here is this cat and the roses from the wall behind her (for me a cat is she, not it). They make such a great couple.
I couldn`t help myself and wanted to show you this card even if I used this cat over and over again.

There are things in quilling I can`t get enough from. Quilled snoflakes, quilled flowers, cakes, teapots and cats.

And of course the stamps I used you with. These roses make me dream of a room and an armchair... with a soft vintage feeling.

Now, that`s all for today... Hope you`ll love my cat,

For somenone special

This is a quick post, I decided to show this album for which I used three little quilled flowers. Love their shape even if being so small and tight are not so fast.
Pentru azi un post scurt in care am hotarat sa va arat acest album pentru care am folosit trei floricele quilling. Ador aceasta forma, acest tip de floare chiar daca din cauza ca sunt asa de mici si de stranse imi ia mai mult timp sa le fac.

Albumul e pentru o fetita de 10 ani foarte speciala (ati ghicit! Sandra), culoarea ei preferata e rosul, asa ca mi-a fost usor sa aleg culorile. Albumul e cu poze din cei doi ani pe care Sandra i-a petrecut la Zana Buna - centrul de care m-am ocupat eu.
The album is for a very special 10 years old little girl (of course! Sandra), her favourite color being red it wasn`t too hard for me to choose the colors I used. The album contains pictures from the two years that Sandra spent with us at Good Fairy - the after-school and summer centre I worked at.

Albumul ii apartine acum. Am facut pozele pe fuga, inainte de a plecam inspre familia ei si nu sunt chiar cele mai grozave...
The album belongs to her now. I took the pictures in a hurry before we leave so they are not the best...

Have a wonderful week,
Va doresc o saptaman minunata,

Quilled cake

Because here it`s winter time we had some snowflakes and a cup of tea. Now I invite to taste a slice of cake. I love the colors and the stamps used for the background of this card. The color of the card reminds me of cinnamon so let`s imagine the cake it`s chocolate and cinnamon.
La noi e iarna asa ca bineinteles am avut felicitari cu fulgi si o ceasca de ceai. Acum va invit la o felie de tort. Ador culorile si stampilele pe care le-am folosit pentru felicitarea aceasta. Culoarea cartonului ma face sa ma gandesc la scortisoara asa ca... haideti sa ne imaginam ca tortul e cu ciocolata si scortisoara.

I made a cake like this last year, in the same period between Christmas and Valentine, you can see it here. This time of the year is not so dark as we could believe, since Jesus was born, Light defeated the Darkness and from that moment day and night are equal, with time day becomes bigger and bigger.
Am facut un astfel de tort anul trecut in aceeasi perioada dintre Craciun si Valentines, il puteti vedea aici. Aceasta perioada a anului nu e chiar asa de intunecata cum am putea crede, din momentul in care s-a nascut Iisus Lumina a invins Intunericul si de atunci ziua a devenit egala cu noaptea, apoi ziua devine tot mai mare.

So, this was my post, smelling so good... like cinnamon and spreading the news about light.
Asadar, acesta a fost postul meu cu un miros imbietor de scortisoara si raspandind vestea despre lumina.

Quilled Snowflakes and Lace 2

Priveam pe geam cum vantul zapacea o frunza inca prinsa de o crenguta. Ningea usor si campurile erau albe in jur. Asta azi. Cu starea aceasta de visare am furat putin din Narnia 3 (programat sa-l vedem in seara aceasta) si am inteles de ce creez.

I was looking at a leaf, the wind was blowing. It was snowing slowly and the fields were white, all around. This morning. Dreaming like this I took a sneak peek to Narnia 3 (should wait until evening to watch with my husband). It was in that moment I understood WHY I love making cards, WHI I love to create.

Creez pentru ca prin creatiile mele ofer o scanteie de magie, o varianta de altfel, pentru care oamenii se bucura. Iar eu nu stiu sa traiesc altfel decat cu un strop de magie in viata. Si-atunci iau elemente din natura (precum un fulg sau floare) si le combin cu materiale si culori care asociate le fac sa para fermecate. Asa visez si eu, viseaza si doamna de la magazin, viseaza si cel care daruieste si cel care primeste. O clipa de visare si scufundare in alta lume. Si privindu-ne lucrarile unii altora, visam cu totii.

Well... I create because through my works I give to the world a sparkle from something something magic, another being of things, something that brings joy to people. And I don`t know living differently but with a little bit of magic in my life. So I take something (like a snowflake for instance) and I associate it with lace, or with feathers, or with unusual colors and so things appear to be charmed. From here come my dreams but also the seller from the shop the person who gives or receives the card have the opportunity to dream. A moment of reverie and immersion in another world. And looking at our creations from a corner of this planet to another, we all dream and feel moments of magic.

O felicitare simpla - am pus un fulg pe visiniu si un pic de dantela. Totusi are un aer special.
Quite simple this card, I put a snowflake on burgundy, a little bit of lace. Even so it has something special.

Va salut din lumea mea magica, de poveste,
I say Hello to you from my magic world, a fairytale world,

Quilled tea pot card si marturisiri

Uneori cand lucrez intens si ma scufund in munca, in dorinte, in stradania de a reusi ma intreb de ce fac toate acestea. Poate unele stiti deja ca am avut o operatie care m-a determinat sa stau acasa o vreme, asa ca acum lucrez pentru ca imi prinde bine si in plus sunt genul care are o minte ce proiecteaza mereu tot felul. Dar eu si scriu si am cateva proiecte incepute care asteapta sa fie duse la capat. Cu toate acestea ma innebuneste lumea aceasta a handmade-ului, nu ma pot opri din creat, din a vrea mai mult, mai intens, mai profesional, mai... mai... Oh! Uneori e asa de obositor si ma intreb ~De ce?~ Sotul meu spune ~Pentru ca iti face placere. Punct.~
Lucrez la o serie de felicitari intre Craciun si Valentine, am lansat anul trecut aceasta perioada. Am creat vreo 25 de felicitari, iata azi una dintre ele.

Sometimes, when I work hard and dive into work, in desires, in the effort to succeed I wonder why all these. Maybe some already know that I had a surgery that led me to stay home for a while, I think this is a good opportunity to create. But I also enjoy writing and I have several projects waiting to be brought to an end. Between these two fields making cards drives me crazy, I can`t stop from wanting more and more and more... Oh! Sometimes it's so tiring and I ask ~Why?~ My husband says ~Because it pleases you. Point.~
These days I`ve made around 25 cards, with this theme Between Christmas and Valentine. Here is one of them.

In timp ce scriu, ascult muzica la casti, e tarziu, sotul meu doarme langa mine. Intrand pe youtube sa schimb melodia am vazut o imagine care m-a facut sa simt ce caut... caut sa ma exprim pe mine. Asta am cautat mereu... dar devin prea personala.
Continui cu felicitarea (care Da!, ma reprezinta si pot spune ca e stilul meu!).

It's late and as I write, I listen to music on headphones, my husband sleeps next to me. Going to change the song on youtube I saw a picture that made me feel what I am looking for... I`m looking to express myself through my creations. Now this post is going to be too personal so I`ll go on with this green card.

Ador stampilele si acum le-am folosit cat am vrut eu. Initial nuanta aceasta de verde mi-a fots incomoda, si iata ca am ales sa o public prima. Mi-a cazut tare draga.

I just love, love so much stamps and now I`ve used them as much as I wanted to. In the begining I didn`t enjoy too much this shade of green, it was uncomfortable, but here it is the first you`ll see. Now I`m in love with it.

Pentru ca va spuneam cum si anul trecut in perioada aceasta am creat pe tema Intre Craciun si Valentine puteti intra aici sa vedeti primele mele ceainice (nu cu mult diferite, zic eu) si aceeasi obsesie pentru stampile - acum am mai multe!

I was telling you about this time after Christmas and Valentine and last year, around this period I made my first quilled tea pots. Here they are.

Asa ca mi-ar placea sa stiu ce credeti, mi-ar place sa vorbim despre culori, despre cele care va sunt comode si incomode...
So I would love to hear what you think, I would love to talk with you about colors, about the ones that are comfortable and the ones that are uncomfortable for you...

A Brand New Happy Year

All around bloggers are writing about this new year. It`s so inspiring! Here is this sunflower table number, number 12... like year 2012.

I begin this New Year with a lot of plans and dreams and all I wish during this year is to remember that I am the one who choses to do or not to do those things. Sometimes I work so hard that I forget the way everything started - having fun. I started quilling only to have fun. It`s the same with my dreams and plans - they come from my wish and from my choices, they come from my desire to make this journey on Earth even more fantastic than it is.

May we all have a fabulous and beautiful and healthy and happy and peaceful year!
