Hand painted baby bodysuits

One of my favorite thing is when clients ask me to make something for newborns. I love creating something cute and gentle. Sindy asked me to paint baby bodysuits for 3 arriving babies and they are planing to take a photo for Christmas with babies wearing them. Can't wait to see those photos.







I have to admit I am a bit disorganized and I think the reason why is that I am all the time traveling. After that I need couple of days to settle down and get in a creative mood again. My last short trip was from 8th - 11th September, we went to our dear friends wedding to Cyprus. The celebration was in a small village on the hill called Lofou where we were also accommodated in a beautiful traditional guest house Apokryfo. We had the best 4 days there surrounded by friends and couple's families.




Cheers!

I am back, baby!

I am back from my long vacation and have already started working on commissions. My vacation started with the road trip in California. We traveled from Cracow to San Jose and than San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Santa Barbara and LA. We took Highway 1 from SF to LA and that was amazing, the view is so beautiful. We made few stops to see it better, one was at Ano Nuevo State Park where we saw elephant seals chilling on the beach. 




All the cities we saw were special and nice but our trip was too short for fully experiencing California so we need to come back ;)

Second part of our vacation was in Croatia where we spent a week in our town Zagreb and than about 10 days on island Murter. Few days before we left the island we went on a little boat trip to Kornati, that made my vacation magical!

Personalized gifts

Hi my dear friend!

It was so busy these days over at my studio. I left a big mess which I need to clean now because I am closing the studio for a long holiday season. I know I won't be able to just lay down and do nothing but with lots of traveling I probably won't be able to do much. That is why I had to finish a lot of personalized commissions and I am so happy with all of them.
