Box of stamps...

Back from college today and got text from my mama that a little parcel arrived for me. Went to get it and was pleasantly surprised. Finally got my box with rubber stamps inside. Was wanting it for ages, and now I have it! Very very happy!
Now be loads of pictures... :)

Box contains 70 wooden/rubber stamps (small alphabet, big alphabet, numbers and few punctuation signs stamps). Got this lovely box from Ebay for only 9 euro and free delivery from China. Happy days!
Cant wait to get ink pad tomorrow in the local shop and try them!
And here is my favorite cup ever, got it for my birthday from my sister and her boyfriend! Love it! Elvis forever! As John Lennon said before: "Before Elvis there was nothing..." Totally agree with that!
Hope everyone keeping themselves cozy and warm 
this cold evening!
Always yours,

Art Journal Cover

Made myself a art journal cover from scrap piece of fabric I had for ages in my stash. Decorated with old lace. Absolutely happy with the result. Its not perfect since I'm not very big fan of sewing, but perfect for my needs, because its going to travel with me everywhere.
More pictures:

Cillian approving my work

 Keep yourself warm this cold weather,

Post about Ceramic Brief

Finally manage myself to write this post. Promised to do it - here it is. So...
My drawing object was Nutmeg. So I did my 20 A1's and then got ceramic brief, and it asked us to do design based on them 20 A1 drawings, not on object. So here where is started:

Retro Water Bottle Cozy

Was so bored of my old water bottle, so decided to give it a new look! Much better now, and just in time for cold weather, we supposed to have snow in few days(can not wait, miss snow so much!) 
I used this great tutorial to make cover for my water bottle. Nice and simple!

By the way, background in pictures is my Grand Ripple Blanket, which I love so much, and which is proudly lying in my bedroom on my bed!
Be back very soon, still have to do art post! :)

Holden Shawlette

Holden Shawlette

Amazing pattern and amazing result, says me not being shy at all! :)
Was quick too, took me only about week, even less. The most annoying part was the last picot row.
Yarn is sock yarn from Lidl, didn't know it going to turn into a shawl. But I'm very happy with the result and can not wait to wear it proudly!
Took few pictures today in college straight after finishing, my good friend Aisling gladly agreed to model it for me:

Now its all washed, pinned and drying!

Don't know why I'm putting this here, but maybe 
someone will find this information useful:
Yarn: 'Nina' Sock Yarn from Lidl
Amount of yarn used: Around 2 balls and
a bit of third one
Knitting Needles: Bamboo in size 4mm
Pattern: Holden Shawlette from Raverly by Mindy Wilkes

Me happily wearing my shawl today (15.01.2013)
Was sooo cold today, everything was frozen
Thanks for visiting my blog,
