Hand made cross stitched art is unique and affordable wall art.
For a long time people were embellishing their clothes and household items with hand embroideries.



Another sample of my work is about 11 years old and pattern was found in special edition magazine by “Burda”.

I agree, that cross stitching is time consuming craft, but it give you a surcease in your everyday crazy life.
I found this free and fun cross stitch text generator at Magic Robot Cross Stitch website.

So sit, stitch and enjoy!

Powder Room

Before renovation walls were covered with very dated wallpaper. But it wasn’t the problem.

Problem was that wallpaper was glued directly to the drywall panels. While removing the wallpaper walls were damaged and it was hard to make them smooth again, all imperfections were visible.
To hide that problem, we used a faux paint technique and it worked perfectly.

New tiles, counter top and light fixture were added to finish the look.

Roman Shades November 11, 2007


Roman shades are one of the most stylish and very efficient and practical way to add a touch of elegance to all of your windows.

Roman shades can be used as a standalone window treatment fitted outside the window or fitted inside the window recess and combined with curtains and top treatments for a layered look.

You can order Roman Shades to be custom made or you can do it yourself. I found very usable information:
Making Roman Blinds Instructions
on this website:

I hope it will help you to make your own Roman Blinds.




I found this book in Winners store, it was on sale for only $3.00, so I decided to add the book to my collection of books about sewing and decor.

Book contain nine projects for absolute beginners with step-by-step photos to help you sew decorative pillows, table linens, bed covers and more.

I am a self taught artist. Sometimes I have desire to express myself in paintings.
