Charity bazaar

IWAK’s Spring charity arts and crafts bazaar

As you may know, joining the International Women's Association in Krakow - IWAK, made it living here much easier. Besides meeting and making friends with so many lovely ladies from around the world, I also had the opportunity to lead the art group for the association as well to organize the annual charity arts and crafts bazaars.

Yesterday, at the association's May coffee morning at Sheraton hotel, I organized and participated in my last charity bazaar together with seven IWAK members. 

I am really grateful for this opportunity IWAK provided for us 3rd year in a row and this year, same as the last one, we donated 10% of each sale to the IWAK’s charity fund. 

Here are few photos from the bazaar taken by talented photographer Anna Spiridonova.

 

And now off to a new adventure and a new chapter of our life. Please keep in touch and keep following me for the updates.

Merry Christmas and a blessed 2016!!!

CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY COLLECTION 2015

Earlier this month, I showed you my Christmas/Holiday illustrations. Then I was blessed to find a great printing company here in Cracow which produced a little collection for me - art prints, greetings cards, gift tags and bookmarks.  Everything looks great. Here are some photos and more you can find on my Facebook Page.

So….I just want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU, for all your likes and comments about these illustrations on social media and in messages. Also a big thank you to Make Art That Sells blog for featuring my "Santa is a girl!" collection.

There was also a giveaway on my Instagram and Facebook and four lucky ladies won my Christmas/Holiday cards. Thank you all who participated. There are still few cards, gift tags, bookmarks and prints left so let me know if you are interested by sending me an email to cherubins3@gmail.com

HANDPAINTED TOYS/DECOR

I am not sure if I told you that I joined the workshop at Slow Fashion Cafe organized by Slow Fashion Design IWAK group (International Women Association Krakow)? So, I am going there once a week and I am sewing my creations. 

So far I've made five toys, two pillows and a play mat/bag (which has not been at the photo shooting yet so I will show you the mat in my next blog post).

TWO SHOWS

Last weekend I was participating in two shows together with two amazing artisans from Cracow Ewa of Blue Dot and Iza of Nacotopocoto. On Saturday at kids design market called Krakow ŁAŁ at FORUM Przestrzenie and on Sunday at Art&Food Bazar at Pauza in Garden. It was an interesting experience to hear and see the reactions at my work, to meet my potential clients and to interact with other vendors. I had a lovely time at both shows.

My plans for holidays include lots of traveling so unfortunately I won't be able to write my blog posts every two weeks. See you again next year and until then follow me on Instagram or Facebook!

I wish you a very very merry Christmas and a blessed and full of joy and happiness 2016!!!

Sending you my smile with lots of love!

Time for a treat

Finally a little break :D
March was a really busy month for me. I've done 3 markets, 1 group exhibition and I have participated in a robot workshop at the Tasmeem - art and design conference. There were also some custom orders I was working on and some are still in progress.

It was a perfect timing to celebrate all that and treat our self so hubby and I went on a day trip to Banana Island in Qatar on Saturday. It was beautiful and we spent a perfect day with an amazing food from arabic restaurant and a great massage at the Anantara Spa. I could spend there every weekend!

And here are few photos from my last market at Katara which might be my last market before the summer break so if you are interested in my artworks and products please contact me

As I was busy with all the events I was participating in, I didn't have much time to create but I painted two custom ordered paintings, few hand painted pillows and a cute hand painted elephant toy which has already found a new home. I was also asked to do hand painted metal tins for one famous restaurant/cafe in Doha :D
