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 […]

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

[:en]
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 […]

Purple Beads

Purple Beads

A long time ago I made these paper beads but painted them in a hedious color and they’ve been collecting dust until recently I decided to cover them with some decoupage napkins to finally use them. And they became this: Há muito tempo atrás fiz […]

Caixinha de Inspiração

Caixinha de Inspiração

[:en]Everyday I see writing prompts and one day I found so many of them that I decided to print a few and make a little box with them. I used a old coffee jar and changed it a little bit. I really liked the result but it’s a shame that we can see glue in one of the sides but I was in one of those days where I didn’t care much about being a perfeccionist. I hope I can fill my “little box” of prompts to use it whenever I can =)

I saw this little poem in the net and I decided to use it, I find it truly beautiful and totally true.

What about you also make a box full of suggestions for those days without inspiration? Sometimes there are days or even weeks that we don’t have a single drop of inspiration and we need a little push. These prompts are great to reflect about certain aspects in our life or to imagine ourselves in a complete different world. Try it!
[:pt]Todos os dias vejo várias sugestões de escrita e um dia destes eram tantas que decidi imprimir algumas e fazer uma caixinha para elas. Usei um antigo frasco de café e mudei-o um pouco. Gostei bastante do resultado só é pena notar-se a cola num dos lados mas ‘tava num daqueles dias em que não queria ser muito perfeccionista. Espero é poder encher a minha “caixinha” de sugestões para usar sempre que poder =)

Vi este pequeno poema na net e decidi usá-lo, achei-o simplesmente lindo e totalmente verdadeiro.

E que tal fazeres tu também uma caixa cheia de sugestões para aqueles dias sem inspiração? Às vezes existem dias ou semanas inteiras sem conseguirmos ter uma réstia de inspiração e que precisamos de um empurrão. As sugestões são óptimas para reflectirmos sobre certos aspectos da nossa vida ou para nos fazer imaginar um sítio totalmente irreal. Experimenta!

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

I’m back 🙂 I was thinking if I don’t come back now I never will. I don’t have many things to show you because most of them are almost completed. And the truth is that I haven’t been doing much. I’m leaving home and I’m […]
