2014...

... mi je bila daleko najstresnija godina mog života, zasada.
...was the most stressful year of my life, so far.




Promijenili smo svoj život.
We have changed our lives.




Neke navike.
Some habits.




Preuzeli smo veću odgovornost.
We took more responsibility.




Izgubili smo nešto, nešto smo sami stvorili.
We have lost something, we have created something new.




Radili smo puno.
We have worked hard. 




Nismo imali vremena za blagdane, rođendane, slobodne dane.
We had no time for holidays, birthdays, some leisure time.




A 2014. je bila puna raznih događaja, baš u inat!
- 18. rođendan, maturalni ples, matura, upis na fakultet, seljenje u drugu grad,
- upis u srednju školu, krizma,
- prva pričest, škola u prirodi...

And 2014 was full of various events, just in spite of it!
- 18th birthday, senior prom, graduation, admission to college, moving to another city,
- secondary school enrollment, Holy Confirmation,
- First Communion, a School in Nature ...




Nije bilo vremena niti prilike sve to kvalitetno popratiti,
znam da se ti događaji neće više nikad ponoviti,
ali, što je - tu je...

There was no time or opportunity to  accompany all this by quality,
I know that these events will never happen again,
but, what is - there is ...




Tako da, ako biram projekt koji me je najviše okupirao u 2014. godini, 
to je definitivno Pansion Rade.
Ako budete imali vremena, pogledajte!

So, if I get to  choose a project that I was most occupied in 2014,
it's definitely Pansion Rade.
If you have time, take a look!




Za sebe i svoju obitelj u 2015. godini želim zdravlje, 
a za sve ostalo ćemo se sami pobrinuti.

In 2015. year, I wish upon health for my family and myself,
and for other wishes, we will provide ourselves.




A vama želim sve ono što si sami želite,

jedino  što JA želim od vas je što više inspirativnih postova,
kreativne energije,
pozitivnih misli 
koje nam svima obogaćuju naše svakdašnje živote!


I wish to you the very same wishes you have for yourselves,

but the only wish I have from you
is more inspiring posts,
creative energy,
positive thoughts
that enrich ours everyday lives!


Sretna nova godina svima!
Happy New Year everybody!

Marine Inspired Christmas Mantel / Božićni vjenčić inspiriran morem

božićni vjenčić inspiriran morem
Marine Inspired Christmas Mantel

Pokazala sam vam prije 10tak dana kako sam napravila
Kako sam za taj projekt radila ukrase od gipsa
(a ostalo mi je dosta toga),
odlučila sam od ostatka napraviti još jedan vjenčić za zid (ili vrata).

I had showed you some 10 days ago my
I decorated it with plaster molds,
and because I had many leftovers,
I decided to make another Christmas wreath to hang on the wall (or door).





Upotrijebila sam vjenčić od svježeg zelenila,
također već predstavljenog u tom postu.
I vruće ljepilo i cvjećarsku žicu.


I used my DIY fresh greenery wreath,
that I had presented in that post, too.
And some hot glue and florist wire.




Osim gipsanih morskih zvjezda, pužića i školjkica,
koristila sam još neke ukrase koje sam imala kod kuće.
I ove male božićne kuglice u srebrenoj, tamnosivoj i svjetlosivoj nijansi,
skoro svjetloplavoj.

Beside plaster forms of starfish, winkle and little shells,
I used another decor I had handy.
And some small Christmas balls in silver, darkgrey and lighgray shade,
almost pale blue.





Gipsane  oblike sam zaljepila vrućim ljepilom za zelenilo,
ali nisam htjela ovaj brodić uništiti ljepilom,
pa sam ga zakačila cvjećarskom žicom.

I glued plaster forms with hot glue to the greenery,
but I didn't want to ruin this pretty little boat,
so I pinned it with some wire.





Kuglice sam isto zakačila žicom.

I attached these balls with wire, too.





"Sad, kad sam vjenčić objesila na zid,
mogla bih još maaaalo ukrasiti ...   :) "

"Now, when I have placed wreath on the wall,
I could decorate ooooone bit more...   :) "










"Možda još maaaaalo...."


"Perhaps a little bit more... "

Red Christmas Wreath / Crveni božićni vjenčić



Crvena je za mene boja Božića!

Red color equals Christmas!




Prošli tjedan sam radila adventske vjenčiće,
jedan crveni i jedan bijeli.
Od istog zelenila sam  još jedan vjenčić, ali za zid.
Postupak izrade vjenčića je isti, a pošto će ovaj ipak visiti,
dobro bi bilo neposlušne grane dodatno pričvrstiti cvjećarskom (ili nekom drugom) žicom
da ne popadaju.

Last week I had made some Advent Corollas,
one red and one white one.
I used very same greenery to make this wreath.
Process of making it is the same as I have described in my previous post,
but since I am about to hang this one, 
I suggest you to pin some branches down so they don't fall off.





Ideju sam dobila sa interneta, a pošto nemam orginalni link,
opisati ću svoj proces izrade.
Potrebna je žica savinuta u kružnicu.
Promjer moga budućeg vjenčića je 29 cm, tako je slučajno ispalo.
Potrebne su vrpce za izradu mašni.
Ove sam kupila u Narodnim novinama, svaka vrsta je duga 2 m,
a ukupno sam iskoristila 10 m.
Da je bilo još trake, ne bi smetalo :)

I got this idea from the Internet, of course,
but since I don't have link to original source,
I will describe my own process.
You need some wire bended into circle.
This wreath has 29 cm diameter.
You will be needing some ribbon, too.
I used 10 meters of ribbon for this project,
but it could handle some more, too :)




Izrezala sam trakice na 33 cm duljine,
dakle od jednog pakiranja sam dobila 6 mašni.
U orginalnoj ideji su se mašnice vezale oko žice,
ali to bi mi oduzelo previše materijala,
pa sam se odlučila na drukčiji način.
Trakice sam učvrstila za žicu sa 3 boda iglom i koncem
(gornja slika),
tada sam konac prebacila u dijagonalu dva puta sa jedne strane
 i dva puta sa druge strane formirajući slovo X,
stegla konac i dobila još ljepšu mašnu nego što bi dobila vezivanjem.
Naravno, konac mora biti u boji vrpce, da se posebno ne ističe.

I cut ribbon 33 cm long,
so I got 6 bows from one package of ribbon.
In original idea, all bows were tied up around wire,
but I had realized that would take more ribbon that I got at the moment,
so I decided to do it my way.
I attached ribbon to the wire with three simple hand stitch
(look at the photo above),
placed the thread diagonally 
and wrapped around the ribbon twice around one side 
and twice around opposite side forming letter X,
then pulled the thread to get even better looking bow!
Thread must be similar color as ribbon.





I nakon nekog vremena i  nekih 30 mašni,
dobije se lijepi žičani vjenčić.
Njega sam na zeleni pričvrstila sa cvjećarskom žicom i objesila na zid.

And, after a while and some 30 bows,
you get pretty wire wreath.
I placed it on my green wreath and pinned it down to it
and hanged it on the wall. 





Mašne se lijepo rašire da se nigdje ne vidi žica.

Spread bows nicely so the wire can't be seen.




Prednost ovog žičanog vjenčića je ta što se može koristiti i samostalno
ili u nekim drugim kombinacijama,
može se staviti i na vrata,
a trajati će godinama.

This wire wreath has lots of adventages;
it can be used on its own or in other combinations,
as door wreath, too
and it will last for years.





Sad samo čekamo da i vrijeme odluči da je Božić.
Malo se nadamo i snijegu :)

If only weather would realize that is almost Christmas.
We are hoping for some snow, 
even though snow is not common for our region :)
