Happy New Year

Hi my dear friend!

I'm so sorry if you were waiting for my Monday blog post. To be honest, I forgot which day is today :DDD as I'm on my vacation surrounded with our families and friends and I'm not paying any attention to time...


2013 was a great year for me. I hope 2014 will bring more beautiful surprises and adventures and I'm really looking forward to it.

I wish you the most beautiful and successful 2014, happiness and  joy, love and health!

Happy New Year!

With love and big smile,
Dominika

Time for peace and quiet

Hello my dear friend and welcome to my newest Monday blog post.

I'm having a blast in Croatia surrounded with my family and fiends.
Happiness is all around me :D

What I've been doing since I've arrived?
I had a little bit of time to visit artOmat - market where Croatian artists and designers sell their latest work. I can say that most all of them have products of great quality and design, I was truly impressed.

There are also few locations in the city center with outdoor arts and crafts markets. I didn't have time to take photos except at Advent na Zrinjevcu located in park Zrinjevac, 2 minutes walking distance from Zagreb main square.

I also made one cute painting for little girl Marija.

Now it's time for little bit of peace and quiet, for hugs and kisses, for beautiful food, for Christmas tree and gifts :D

I wish you all Merry Merry Christmas and happy and blessed Holidays!

Hi my dear friend and welcome to my new Monday blog post!

I'm getting ready for my vacation to Croatia, so lots of shopping, packing and finishing your custom orders.

On Monday I met with my group International Artists Doha at our regular ARTogether, this time with artist and curator at Msheireb Arts Center Ben Barbour. We all had an amazing time drawing with calligraphy pen.

I've been also busy with organizing a party for my group and handmade community called QatART along with other board members. It went really well and I'm so happy that we managed to create such a lovely group here in Qatar.

Weekend was for relaxing and exploring new things in Qatar. My hubby and I visited Al Zubarah Archaeological Site,  the first site in Qatar inscribed onto Unesco’s World Heritage List. During the weekend there was event with different activities. There was a famous pearl diver telling us story from his past, I tried making a basket and got lots of inspirations for my paintings :D
