How to Make a Posh Present with the Cheapest Soap

Standard

I bought the cheapest soap and all I use was plaid decoupage finish, laser printed paper, the cheapest ribbon and scissors. The soap transformed in to very posh presents… I painted the soap all over with decoupage finish. Therefore, it will be so resistant to the water.

Visiting İstanbul for first Family&Friends, second EuroLeague Women 2012 Final Eight

Standard

We went to İstanbul for the weekend. It was so beautiful… I am not that arrogant to write about İstanbul. Everybody needs to see İstanbul, it is so unique, so crowded, so lonely, all the positive things, all the passionate things, something always growing, it is always changing and it is always same… and I am not capable enough to explain this beautiful phenomenon. Please, enjoy my short photo-story…

In İstanbul as a tourist, you never feel disappointed, you can feel like ‘I never felt this way’ in a positive way…

You can feel lonely and you can be happy about that in İstanbul…

İstanbul has every colour…

I love you İstanbul…

I do not know Basketball but it was so cool to watch Basketball. Yes, I know a very small majority like women Basketball but believe me it was much much better than you think. We love it:)

I really liked the referees after I see her dancing 🙂 Beside, we were not the guest not the home so we found the referees so fair hihi.

Both, Ros Casares and Rivas Ecopolis team were so great. However, we wanted Ros Casares to win, personally I found number 6 so talented-nice and if you know her name please write here, I could not find:)

Yes, you can see cheerleader in women Basketball too, and they are not male, isn’t it ironic? They are Efes Kızları – Efes Girls and they were so good!

They were sympathetic in a very serious way!

Yeah, it was fair, both team were so successful. Congratulations, Ros Casares and Rivas Ecopolis:)

Yes, back to the airport and home. İstanbul is awesome and Ankara is not bad as well…

Yes, now I do not know, shall I stop here or shall I put more things like dots, little hearts or whatever? Have an idea:)

P.S. It is written something like; Home Sweet Home in Turkish; Evim Canım Evim…

After I publishes this post my sister told me to put dotes, as you see I just added them in seconds hihi:)

Sailing Tray

Standard

This tray had not nice edges so I used wood paste to have a smooth surface and then I loved the aging view, just kept it like that… The decoupage pages are from an old National Geographic magazine which I do not really appreciate due to their attitude how showing people like aliens sometimes. Like, they are normal and civilized and others not…

Anyway, this is a new technique; wood aging with wood paste, and hope you like it…

Lovely Pillow

Standard

This lovely illustration made by my niece. I loved it!!! This is her portrait with my husband… There is also red written question; ‘Aunty, I love you so much, do you love me’? Yes, I LOVE YOU!!!:)

With fabric transfer finish I made this lovely pillow. You need to photocopy of the original art work on the mirror view. It takes two days to dry out. I am not patient so it was a good lesson to learn how to be patient. My mom sewed it, thanks to mommy and my beautiful niece…

A Present

I wanted to prepare a present for my brother in law, he is a professor designing robots and attending Robocup since I know him.

I found a beautiful smart cartoon at Alex Noriega Sketchblog. I was so excited and just could wait to ask Alex to use it but I hope he will be happy to know, lots of serious professors and science students will have a look at it…
