Recycling and nostalgia

 I'm not the kind of person to accumulate just anything. Usually ,I don't get attached to things such as clothes, furniture or even my own paintings.
On the contrary,the rejoicing of throwing is more like me.
I love making room for new stuff, my strategy here is trying not to get too nostalgic no matter what!
Beautiful work of Ester Venger ,my mother's aunt, made with different types of seeds

Although, there are moments when I think: maybe I can use this lamp for decorating the kids' room. Maybe this shirt will look great if I just cut off the sleeves...
that's when I know the recycling freak that within me is coming out! therefore, I have to lie down for a moment and let it go a way.
Here's an object that survived my Memories elimination lust.
A picture I made of  FIMO ,for my grandmother

A picture I made of fimo ,for my grandmother when I was a young girl.
That's the nature of old stuff. they keep on bringing up old memories, and maybe it isn't so bad after all.

Over the years I've succeeded to develop quite an impressive ability to improvise.
Some would call this creativity, but the way I see it, it's the end result of my being a disorganized person.
Lack of planning for the long run causes the need for major improvisation.
Last week my son was "suddenly" invited to a friend's birthday. 
luckily, I found a present that was left deep Inside my closet.
I didn't have any wrapping paper handy, so:
1. I took Cellophane paper and drew strips right on it in two different color markers (holding them all together).
2. Underneath the Cellophane paper I placed a white paper . Than I added  one of  my son's drawings  and  another layer of Cellophane ( this is where it gets more interesting and creative) and wrapped the present with them all.

Playing around with it can be a lot of fun, don't you think?
Well... here I am, talking to myself again... Oh well, good night.

Friday morning in Jerusalem (just another memorable day)

Taking a little break from Tel Aviv, the "city of lights", my husband and I are heading to the holy land of dispute, Jerusalem.
It's early in the morning now, just the perfect time for wandering around the alleys of Jerusalem. Everything is quiet , but

don't be mislead by the silence of the stones around.
The "Sabbath" is coming (Saturday.The Holy Day of the Jewish people) and there are plenty of preparations
that need to be done.
People are rushing to the "Mahane Yehuda Market",and so are we .
Escaping the massive crowd, fascinating scenes and authentic scents, we find a little quiet cafe within the market.
The only seats left are on  the bar. there are small charming hooks for hanging bags, underneath the blue bar.
What a cool idea!
Where do I put my precious bag? on the floor or on my knees? that common problem which usually irritates most women in cafes,
finely gets a reasonable answer.

Simplicity everywhere. Simple design and delicious fresh food. A place that's not trying too hard to impress anyone. How refreshing!
..We could have stayed here all day but, the clock is ticking, and we should hurry back to pick up the kids.
This is definitely a place to come back to!

How do you tie a ribbon bow? you simply don't

There's an old saying that goes like this "Don't judge a book by it's cover". Well, most of the time this could be true, but when it comes to packaging, I want a package that sells.

Sometimes I get into a store and buy something that I really don't need or even understand what it's for, but it just has such an amazing packaging, that I just can't  resist.
Apparently, the most common way to deal with wrapping a present, is to tie a ribbon bow.
How do you to tie a ribbon bow around a gift box? 
This question bothers many people. I've never actually seen anyone do it right.
That's when I thought, if tying the bow is so difficult why not have it printed right on the wrapping paper?


Just print and wrap!
The file is formatted as PDF file. A4 size. 
One page is perfect for wrapping a disc. Two for a book.
Four for... and so on ...
(Don't forget to write your name and your sweethearts names inside the printed greeting card).
I'd love to hear how it goes.
keep in touch,

How to make a wine basket from egg tray

 Wine basket
Homemade wine basket

 The great thing about making your own wine basket is that you can put what ever you want inside. The egg trey keeps the bottle and glasses from breaking, leaving plenty of room for chocolates, CD's and other cool things.
