What is your favorite fictional character?

We have a great fave thing to scrap at the TAAFOMFT: favorite fictional character. Noooo doubts for me here: The polar expres crew: I simply adore this animation and I love the story, all the time immerged in magic but still just a pinch scary, just enough to drive children's (and I'm one of them :-)) immagination and feelings deep in this fantastic jouney!!! I think I've watched it thousands of times and that music and story still surprise me everytime I enjoy it! The pocket watch was the perfect background, always showing something to midnight....

And we are changing things up a bit around FAVE THINGS!!! We are now going to choose our winner by using Random.org so everyoneb that plays along have a chance to win and we will now be showing all the lo's/projects on a slideshow when we announce the winner! Isn't this great!
And don't forget that this time there is a 20$ gift certificate that is waiting for the winner!!!!

Altered halloween boxes

I have to admit that this year I feel a huge inpiration for halloween stuff (you already noticed that, huh?). Yesterday I altered this three containers and they will join the other halloween decor.

I bought once some medication in this tiny bottle and I loved the shape of it so I've kept it and it finally got the right alternation....
One side...

And the other side....

The next one is an altered chipboard metal box. I've colored the front with distress crackle paint. Usually I play with purple, orange and brown for halloween but this year my creations have to contain even a bit of green because I think they get a lot more of dimension. In this case I used green ribbon. The Tattered angels corners are neccesary for a lielle bit of shabby chic look.

I actually recycled and I used part of the packaging of the Tattered angels Glimmer glass album to make the front tag. I used an orange wooden piece for the little pumpkin, I draw a face on it and glued some super tiny leaves and stalk.

The next one is a simple black chipboard box. The main idea of it is the tattered angels Frame which is used as a pumpkin - I looove it!!!

Now I have to find some pumpkins to carve... I enjoy making original ones and the whole family just can't see the time to make them!
Have a wonderful autumn!!!!

Halloween wreath

I felt inspired to make some halloween colored paper roses and I made them a lot and so I decided to incorporate them in a paper halloween wreath. I made two types of paper flowers. the The first one is the Tim Holtz paper flower but I decided to use different patterned papers in one flower. The choice was good because in the end I had plenty of different halloween roses with the right mood: not too serious but still a little bit elegant. The second paper flower I decided to make is from the recipe I found on the internet. They are soooo easy to do and have a greatb impact! i added some glittery leaves and some glossy black elements...

Have a great day and don't forget to have fun!

What's your favorite poem?

Do you have a fave poem? The current challege on the TAAFOMFT is really something special. Yes, I know this is a difficult decision to make because there so much different aspects to consider and for me poetry preferences are mostly related to my State of mind and heart. But I have a favorite one. My mom used to read to me this poem again and again and we still read it together, loudly. And every time we get the tears in our eyes. I just love it!! It's Be The Best of Whatever You Are by Douglas Malloch.

For this occasion I created a mega tag and you can understand that was a perfect gift for my mom, just to let her know again how much I love her.

And here is the text:
If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill
Be a scrub in the valley--but be
The best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush if you can't be a tree.
If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass,
And some highway some happier make;
If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass--
But the liveliest bass in the lake!
We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew,
There's something for all of us here.
There's big work to do and there's lesser to do,
And the task we must do is the near.
If you can't be a highway then just be a trail,
If you can't be the sun be a star;
It isn't by size that you win or you fail--
Be the best of whatever you are!

And I'm proud we have a beatiful slovene version:
Če biti ne moreš borovec vrh grička,
pač bodi le grm v dolini-
najlepši grmiček na bregu potočka,
če nisi drevo na višini.
Če nisi grmiček, pač bodi le bilka
in cesto okrasi samotno...
Če nisi za bobra pa bodi vsaj ščuka,
gladino razburkaj tihotno...
Je dosti posadke, en sam kapitan,
za vsakogar prostor se najde.
Če složni smo skupaj , ni delo zaman,
že barka pred ciljem se znajde...
Če nisi kot cesta pač bodi le steza...
in zvezda, ko sonce zaspi...
Velikost ne odloča, kdo vzpne se, pogreza....
A bodi najboljši, karkoli že si...

And there is another thing to share. My friend Tanya, a very talented girl and is celebrating.... I invite you to go on her blog and have a look into her fantastic world and to look what a fantastic candy she prepared. This candy is surley deliscious, isn't it????

I have to admit that I'm already expecting halloween. I love this harvest time and I love the start of the decoration time. From halloween to spring there is always something to celebrate and always a way to enhance the joy of living with deliscious food, marvelous decorations and festive atmosphere. It's seems to me that in this way is just easier to say goodbye to summer and to make the pause to the next one a great time...

Have a wonderful autumn!!!

Canvas Love Letters mini

So today is the 4th of September abd thet means that I have to choose the two future tag owners. The reason why I decided to reveal them today is because today is Matej's and mine anniversary: 14 years together!!!!!OMG, this time just flows so quickly and it seems yesterday we started our story. But I'm grateful because the time that passes gives me the opportunity to know my special person better and better and to try to create a tiny special universe.
Of course the gift for the anniversary have to be special (acctually we started on the 4th of September and after 14 years we still celebrate every 4th of the month with a tiny gift - an attention that matters) and it was just a perfect occassion for the LOVE LETTERS MINI.
I made special canvas envelopes and each one contains a special letter: past, present, future and the thank you letter.

I made some dew on this envelope with the glue gun and it seems like real!

I acctually put the envelope in my old typewritter and typed some love quotes that I like the most....

Every envelope has a special note when you open it.....
..and a special card that treasures the message....
And now to the tags. I used random generator and the result is:
The first tag goes to: Alenka
The second tag goes to: Renata
Please e-mail me your address so I can send them to you and thanks again to everybody that stops here!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
