One more little notebook for our friends. Very simple because it is going to be used on a boat, where they spend their quality time. In June 2006 we were invited to spend with them weekend and we had really great time sailing for 2 days.

Hope you had great Saturday! I had. I can say I was resting. No cleaning ( I only run dishwasher), no cooking - yesterday I made one of my husband's favourite dishes: crepes with mushrooms, spinach and Alfredo sauce - so we had some leftovers for dinner today! I only baked a quick cake with strawberries and whipped cream ( real whipped cream ). I didn't want to use strawberries from store, because they are not real - they grow in green houses and they taste the same all year round, so I went to Linvilla Orchards to get "real" ones. Linvilla is farm dedicated to agriculture, entertainment and education. They raise they own fresh fruits and vegetables that you can pick yourself or purchase in our Farm Market. Their bakery makes delicious pull-apart bread which we love. There is a great playground and additionally children can feed chickens, ducks and see a horse or a goat.
I love plants. Both indoor and outdoor. Because of traveling a lot I can't have to many indoor ones: I only have zamioculcas ( it is great for people who forget to water plants) and 2 weeks ago I bought my first orchid. I hope it will survive and rebloom in the future.
There is a different story with my garden. I love having blooming plants outside. After living in a block of flats for 26 years now I have my own little garden. Every year I buy annuals my husband plants tomatoes and basil. Next year we are going to build a planting box to start growing more vegetables.
This is a picture of my front yard.
My lavender. This picture is especially for Kasia - szkieuka.
And some color on my front steps.

Have a great Sunday!

These are my first notebooks. I made them about 2 weeks ago. I have 3 more but i can't show them to you, before they get to the new owners. One more thing to avoid drama among my scrapbookig friends: I don't have ZUTTER! But it doesn't change the fact that I would like to have one! For this projects I was using simple blank little books and I only decorated the covers.
Have a great weekend!

Dostalam go od Renaty.
Baaaaaardzo mi sie podoba!!!
Kolory super - lubie delikatne i neutralne barwy.
Bardzo chcialam dostac biscornu i dostalam.
Od jakiegos czasu fascynowal mnie jego ksztalt
oraz metoda wykonania.
Na blogu Renaty mozna tez znalezc
kilka ciekawych linkow jak zrobic biscornu.

Renatko dziekuje bardzo!


W kwietniu bralam udzial w wymianie igielnikow u Edy.
Kasia - moja partnerka w zabawie dostala juz igielnik
wykonany przeze mnie.
Bardzo mnie cieszy, ze jej sie podoba.
Zdjecia igielnika pozwolilam sobie
skopiowac z jej bloga.

Last Saturday I met with girls at the big crop
I had fun and I also got inspired
so last two evenings
I was making these cards.
I am content how they turned out.
I used flowers which I bought in Poland,
my new stamps from Close to my Heart,
of course MS punch and some paper
which I had for at least last 2 years.

In the end of May I found a great tutorial how to make this flower.
If you would like to try go to Nichole Heady's blog.
You will also find some ideas for cheap embellishments
(home and hand made).
It is realy easy to make if you can crochet.
For me the hardest was the transition
between small and big flower.
In the result of that my first flower is missing
one petal in a big flower.
This a card which I made for my husband's niece.
Last week she graduated from middle school.

These are some older cards.I am going to give them away to my friends,
so before I do it I decided to show you them.

And this card I made last week for
one of challenges on Polish Scrappasion forum.

I hope you had a great weekend.
