Happy Easter

Happy Easter

[:en]I don’t give Easter a special attention to be honest, Christmas is truly my favorite holiday. But last year I started to have an idea about inspiring people during Easter. Then I saw a tutorial and everything connected. I decided that I’d put quotes inside […]

[:en]Today I’m going to show my latest project! It was on my head for a while and when I went home I sewed it! I told myself to leave it to Christmas but I couldn’t resist. It’s a fast project to make and I didn’t […]

A new journal for the broke student

A new journal for the broke student

[:en]So what happens when I’m a broke college student and you need a new journal? You make one yourself! Actually it was one of summer goals but I wasn’t thinking in doing it since my classes start next Monday. In reality lots of these goals weren’t accomplished, most of them lack of money but I don’t have any problems with that. There are so many other things that I did this Summer and never planned that were equally awesome, so no regrets!
Anyway the reason I’m posting today is to show off my new journal. I love it! I painted the cover (actually thinking about doing a tutorial about it soon) and I can’t wait to start writing. I wanted a new journal because I want to challenge myself to write 30 days in a row. Will you be interested that every week I post how this challenge has been? Please let me know 🙂 I think it’d be good to write it on my blog, it’ll give me more motivation to finish it!

Here’s me with it, the photograph is a little bit out of focus…
[:pt]O que acontece quando uma estudante tesa precisa de um novo caderno? Ela decide fazê-lo! Na verdade até era um dos meus objectivos para este verão mas nem estava a contar fazê-lo porque as minhas aulas começam na Segunda. Na verdade muitos destes objectivos não foram cumpridos, a maioria por falta de dinheiro mas não tenho problemas nenhuns com isso. Fiz tantas coisas este Verão que não foram planeadas e que foram igualmente espectaculares, por isso não tenho arrependimentos!
Bem a razão por eu estar a postar hoje é porque vos queria mostrar o meu novo caderno. Adoro-o! Pintei a capa (acho que até vou fazer um tutorial sobre isso brevemente) e mal posso esperar para o estrear. Queria um novo caderno porque estou a pensar desafiar-me em escrever durante 30 dias seguidos. Estão interessados num post todas as semanas para vos dizer como está a correr? Por favor digam-me 🙂 Acho que se escrever o meu desempenho no meu blog, vou ter mais motivação para completar o desafio!

Aqui estou eu com o meu novo caderno, a fotografia está um bocadinho desfocada…

Washer Necklaces

Washer Necklaces

[:en]This is one of those things that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. It’s seen everywhere and it’s so simple to make! These two washers: Became these necklaces: Seriously, no need for tutorials. Just sand a washer a little bit and decoupage […]

Bedsheet Dress

Bedsheet Dress

[:en] When I saw this tutorial I knew I had to make something like this. I love all the hippie look, the maxi dresses, the headband and this was the perfect opportunity to see how I looked in one. This is a bedsheet (I actually […]

Kai no Kuchi

Kai no Kuchi

Yesterday I spent most of my afternoon (with some breaks and if you’re a fast hand sewer you’ll finish this in no time) doing this:


Really like it, it’s definately not perfect, stitches can be seen, it’s not exactly very well aligned but I like it 🙂 I followed this tutorial and it’s a perfect way to not spending any money doing crafts, my fabric was an old shirt sleeve of my brother’s (when he was 6, amazing how little fabric this uses) and the idea of using a yogurt lid to achieve this effect is genius.[:pt]
Ontem passei a tarde (com vários intervalos e se coses à mão rapidamente acabarás isto num instante) a fazer isto:


Gosto bastante. Definitivamente não perfeita, os pontos podem ver-se, não está exactamente bem alinhada mas gosto bastante dela 🙂 Segui este tutorial e é uma óptima forma de não gastar nenhum dinheiro a fazer trabalhos manuais, o tecido era uma manga de uma antiga camisa do meu irmão (quando ele tinha 6 anos, incrível quão pouco tecido utilizei nisto) e usar uma tampa de iogurte pa ter este efeito é genial.[:]

Drawing Notebook

Drawing Notebook

[:en] One of my summer goals is to draw and what more than a beautiful notebook to make myself motivated? I used one notebook that I didn’t want to get rid of and just collaged it, my inspiration is this, the blog owner is such […]

Doodle Dress

Doodle Dress

[:en]Lately I’ve been super inspired by people who doodle a lot, check this and this. They’re super talented and inspired me a lot to experiment with my doodles. So I cut up a huge t-shirt and made it a dress (well I wear shorts when […]

A Capa Colorida

A Capa Colorida

[:en]Lately it’s been crazy! Lots of works to deliver, staying up late to do them (some times several times in a row), programming, programming, it’s all I’ve been doing. Today it was my first exam and I still got 4 left. I’ve been really busy around here, but thinking that I’m going to France in the holidays always makes me happy 🙂
Last week when I went home, tired of everything, I decided to give myself a morning of vacation. I had a work to deliver later that day but it’s was almost done I decided that I deserved that. I didn’t stop that week. So what did I do? I saw an old folder in the house and decided that it was perfect to carry my study sheets.
From this awful green:

To this:

I loved the result to be honest 🙂 It’s a shame I didn’t have any ribbon to match the folder and it end up staying with the old one. I’ll probably trade it to a prettier one when I’ve some time.
Well I’ve to go. I’m going to bed early to rest and be ready for tomorrow study! I think my posts these weeks will only be from the section “Let Music Give You…” and maybe I right some posts about my plans for my trip to France, I don’t have much time but I’ll see if I can write them :)[:pt]Ultimamente tem sido impossível! Imensos trabalhos a entregar, a ficar até à madrugada a fazê-los (muitas vezes várias noites seguidas), programar, programar, é o que tenho feito. Hoje tive o meu primeiro exame e ainda me faltam 4. Tenho andado muito ocupada por estes lados, a minha motivação é que vou a França nas férias e isso deixa-me super contente 🙂
A semana passada quando fui a casa, esgotada de muitos trabalhos, dei-me a mim mesma uma manhã de férias. Tinha um trabalho para entregar nesse dia mas como estava adientado decidi que merecia. Não tinha parado nessa semana. Por isso o que é que eu fiz? Vi uma pasta antiga lá em casa e decidi que era perfeita para andar com as minhas folhas de estudo.
Passou deste verde horrível:

Para isto:

Adorei o resultado para ser sincera 🙂 Só é pena não ter uma fita para condizer com a capa e acabou por ficar com a antiga. Provavelmente mais tarde irei trocar a fita para uma mais bonita.
Bem, e assim me despeço. Vou deitar-me cedo para descansar-me e preparar-me para o estudo de amanhã! Acho que os meus posts nestas semanas vão ser apenas do “Let Music Give You…” e talvez escreva alguns posts de planos para a minha viagem em França, não tenho tempo para nada mas vou ver o que posso fazer :)[:]

(Almost) Marble Magnets

(Almost) Marble Magnets

[:en]One of the things that I decided on spring break was not buy any craft materials. First I didn’t have much time to do much and second I’ve lots of material to use so why would I spend more money? I made these magnets with […]
