Wow! I reached a milestone in my blogging career. 100 posts! I feel like I should bake a cake with the number 100 in chocolate frosting. How about a little retrospective on my crafting instead?

It all started some six years ago, when I stumbled onto Craftster. Amazed with all the projects that other people posted, I decided to try some of them out for myself. The very first thing I tried was sewing - there was a great tutorial for a Jordy Bag. I sewed mine by hand. From an old t-shirt and corduroy pants. It didn't look like much, but I was proud of the fact that I basically made something from otherwise useless stuff. That's a great feeling - the one you get when you finish a project. Practically the next day I went and bought a sewing machine.

The sewing bug had me for a while, but then I sort of abandoned the hobby when a new and shinier one presented itself.

So over the last 6 years, I've dabbled in
almost every crafty activity there is. Here's a list, if you're interested : stenciling, bag sewing, jewelly making, Polymer clay, knitting, bookmaking and paper crafts, crochet (tried and failed miserably), embroidery, cross stitch. Lately everyday life kept me too busy to craft, but I feel the bug again. After all, I need to have something to blog about in the next 100 posts.

Thank you for reading! ;-)


  1. Prekrasna retrospektiva! Naročito kad sam ugledala stvari izrađene od tkanina koje i ja posjedujem!
    Samo tako i dalje, uz napomenu da bi ti postovi mogli biti i češči!

  2. Congrats on post n° 100!
    Your work is very creative and it is good that you try so dfferent things.

  3. Thank YOU for having this blog and posting about all the wonderful things you have made. The retrospective reminded me of some of them that I've forgotte, especially the polymer clay stuff, which is absolutely stunning!

  4. Čestitke, i da te dalje čitamo i gledamo sve te lepote koje stvaraš!
