Summer craft marathon 2016 - Week #2

A couple of days ago, on a warm summer night, my balcony was transformed into a little worshop. Our craft partner Veronika came over and despite the fact that we had soooo many ideas about this week's assignment for In My Closet's summer craft marathon, we have decided to stick in just one craft project per person.
So, we proudly present this week's participations. 
Bon voyage! 

Upcycle #1
An old glass presse-papier that was resting on the library for so many years now, was transformed into a brand new one, ready to travel us around the globe!
Over Caucasus particularly!
All Veronika needed was a lot of torn pieces of map, some school glue and lots of patience (ok and some gossip in between!) 







Upcycle #2
I am not the one to collect e v e r y  s i n g l e  t h i n g  in a box/closet/drawer, in case i might need it in the future... I usually throw away objects that I find useless. Luckily, I did not throw away these ruined clay plates (that were supposed to become coasters...) and they were used in this project, saving us money and time.
And time flew pleasantly while shooting the breeze and suddenly we saw all those torn pieces of map transforming into a wall hanging mobile!
Greek islands Tilos, Kasos and Nisyros are on our bucket list as you can see.




*Don't forget, you still have time to subcribe and catch the fourth week's challenge.

*Believe it or not, since that night we keep tearing maps apart on our free time :)



Have a nice & creative day!

Summer craft marathon 2016 - Week #1

This summer, Anna, that restless crafty girl from InMyCloset has decided to keep us busy, as she usually does.
On a weekly basis, she will be proposing a new craft challenge, 12 in total!
Last week I could not help attending her as the challenge was quite appealing: we had to take an old piece of clothing or accessory and transform it into something new.
Unfortunately, the unworn and ready-to-throw-away garments and accessories were way more than I originally thought and there was only one week in order to complete the task. Big trouble.
Thankfully, I was not alone in this creative adventure!
My good friend Veronika -who also happens to be very artistic and crafty and a true handywoman- invited me over her place in order to deliberate for this solemn purpose: giving life to a bunch of old t-shirts, stuck in our closets for many many years now.
Scissors and fabrics and yarns and trims and needles were all over the working table on a sunny Friday afternoon, which turned out to be a super fun one!
Upcycling at its best!

And while a picture is worth a thousand words, here is a glimpse on what we have accomplished together for this first week's challenge!


Upcycle #1
A plain black tshirt is transformed to an haute-couture piece, featuring a pair of angel's wings on the back! Cutting them out was a hassle but a glass of fresh homemade lemonade was a real consolation - well, ok and those extra tiny hands!





Upcycle #2
This white vest top has been brought back to life just by replacing the old twinkly necklace with a new removable fringe necklace, consisting of colorful tshirt yarns (made out of old unworn polo men tshirts). Easy yet graceful!





Upcycle #3 by Aggelina
As you can see creativity and inspiration were thriving and what's more, Veronika's daughter was our little helper, our summer elf: not only did she contributed to our task's completion; she even remodelled her own t-shirt by adding a bright pompom fringe on the shirt's neckline and a little cute detail on the back.
Look at her, deservedly proud of her accomplishment!


The world is your playground girl!


Upcycle #4
(out of competition)
An old v-neck black tshirt, not particularly interesting, has been transformed in just a few steps into this fresh ooak blouse!
Veronika skillfully made this cute flower embellishment, using various fabrics, felt pieces and bell beads and Aggelina attached it onto the tshirt's neckline in a few stitches.
A really versatile piece of clothing took the place of that bland tshirt, don't you think so?






After all this crafting overdose, the time has come for us to sit back and shout "Whoopee! Summer Craft Marathon, week #1: Mission accomplished!".
And now off to week #2 where a new intriguing task is awaiting!
Thank you Anna for challenging us in such a creative way!

*In case you liked this blue-sky mess and you want to join us, you still have time to subcribe and catch the third week's challenge.

Have a nice & creative day!

Martis bracelets vol. 2








According to Greek tradition, wearing a braided bracelet from red and white string on the first day of March, is considered to help protect the wearer's skin from the strong Greek sun. The traditional bracelet is called "Martis", meaning March in Greek. As soon as March ends, wearer can remove the bracelet from his/her wrist and place it on a bush or tree. Tradition says that swallows will use the bracelet to create their nest. 

These our own versions of Martis bracelets. See them on our fb page and contact us directly to make one yours!
