Alere Modern

alere modern home page

At the very beginning of this month, Alere Modern was opened. More than a year ago, I had a pleasure to chat with it's founder, adorable Caitlin when she said: "I found your work today and just love your animal and snowflake cut-outs. They're so beautiful. I am imagining having a house full of the snowflakes in the winter. It would be wonderful!"

Well, for those dreaming about White Christmas, I think that my snowflakes cuts can contribute in creating the magic:)
Here is my page at Alere Modern site
There are many fantastic artists featured there, please take a look:)))

Last year, we didn't make it in time to decorate the Supermarket concept store Window, creating a bit of magic with my snowflakes, but hopefully this year we can try to do it:)
Of course, if that happen, I'll do the pics and let you know:))

That time of the year

bambi snowflake

My poor, neglected blog.....it is hard to believe that I've been away from blogging for almost 2 weeks, but I was extremely busy with so many different things, always trying to push myself too much in so many directions....
With Xmas and Holidays season, I had so many orders that I needed to take care of and we also had a huge studio move and I am still thinking about where and how to settle my printing press, as I really want to make some more prints with it in the future:)
I found so many drawings from elementary and secondary school and it made me think about the years and things behind.

In 2 days I will be one year older and I somehow just hate the fact that the time flies so fast....but, on the other hand to celebrate it, I will be doing next post as a Giveaway, including some of my ornaments;)

And talking about the ornaments, in my IwannaBE etsy shop, you can find this lovely new addition, Bambi whirlwind snowflake.

DOILY love

doily cushion

21I had a thing for doilies.
For those following my work, it is well known:)
I have blogged about some doily inspiration a few times here and almost all of my work within the home decor field is based on the doily love as an immense source of the inspiration.
Also, being great fan of Tord Boontje's work and Marcel Wanders work, since the students days, I was easily taken with all the doily inspiration and dreams about what can be created using the doily, artistically and aesthetically.

Unfortunately, some dreams, ideas and plans in the pocket, can't be fulfilled so fast and easily, as the time to do things, in my case is very limited and I am giving my best to harmonize my time, being divided with professional and private obligations. And therefore, many ideas and plans are only slowly coming to life and here are a few waiting for so long to be finally realized...all having the doily somehow in common:)
