My creative space

One summer day I found this walking in the countryside in the neighbourhood. I was blown away by the beauty of these fragile poppies pods. I undestood I have to do somethning with this.
poppies
The idea converted into these pieces...brooches, and ring pieces in white-red and black-red.
glazing
I had to glaze them twice because the first time I put not enough glaze and it was a fallure.
Fallure - after first glazing

But now, I love them. Smooth and white and lovely.

Also these pieces are just perfect to participate in European Street team challenge hosted on Zsazsazsu Blog, the theme is Seeds and Pods.

Japan relief

I heard about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan while driving the car and I couldn't imagine how destructive it were untill I saw the heartbreaking images on the TV.... all those people who couldn't save their lives and so much people who lost their home.... Every night when I go to sleep I think - how lucky I'am to sleep in my bed now under my roof....
Inspired by KoideStudio I decided to donate 50% of some items in my shop to devastating Japan. Probably it wont be too much, but it'll be my little help.
Look for "Japan relief" in my shop and in global Etsy search to find more sellers who also donate to this cause.

Yummy moments - Kitchen experiments

I always thought I'm not a great cook. But really may be I just need to practice more?
Following this video I prepared a very yummy orange cake!

Try it too!
You'll just need:
1 Orange
70ml of Oil (2.36 oz)
250 gr of Sugar (0.55 lb)
3 Eggs
170 gr of Flour (0.37 lb)
Baking powder 1 bag

Bake it at 180Cº (356Fº) during 35-40 min.

Just follow the video, it's so easy and very yummy! :P
P.S: In the video she uses rafinated sunflower oil and white sugar. I used Virgen Extra Olive oil and brown sugar and it was fine as well.

Here is a picture of my cake as a prove :D
