>MY CREATIVE SPACE…

by izabela

>I don’t normally make things on Thursday as it is one of my days working out… day-time job or proper job or whatever you want to call it… but sometime I find a little time and do some crafting…

so this is my creative space today – my laps, watching some tv which isn’t really interesting, but not too bad, making simple fingerless mittens… relaxing…

to see more spaces by creative souls, go here to Kootoyoo and you will be charmed…

>THOSE HAPPY MOMENTS…

by izabela

>on our lovely handmade Crafteroo forum we just talked – how happy we are craft wise (if I can say that this way)

na naszym bardzo milym i przyjaznym forum Crafteroo wlasnie rozmawialismy – jak bardzo czujemy sie zadowoleni (czy tez szczesliwi) jesli chodzi o tworzenie (kraftowanie – nie wiem czy tak moge to powiedziec)

and I have to say I am very happy, I can do what I want now, create, experiment, can make some of this and later some of those, I get bored I make totally different thing… this is me happy crafter and discoverer (or it is only my wishful thinking but I always wanted to call myself that name 😉 ), but is it enough for a crafter? because money wise is not worth it… people always will look for low price not high quality and I don`t get any profit from my creating (yet!) but going to exhibit at craft fairs and having on-line shops give enough money to buy more materials and tools and to make more and thanks that be happy 😉 so I am…

i musze powiedziec ze ja pod tym wzgledem czuje sie w pelni zadowolona, moge teraz robic to co lubie, tworzyc, eksperymentowac, troche zrobic tego, troche tamtego, jak sie znudze to zajme sie znowu czyms innym… to ja jestem – zadowolona z zycia krafterka i odkrywca (albo tak sobie tylko siebie nazywam bo zawsze sobie marze o odkrywaniu nowosci 😉 ), ale czy to wystarczy? bo jesli chodzi o pieniadze to tak naprawde totalni mi sie to nie oplaca… ludzie zawsze szukaja niskich cen a nie wysokiej jakosci i nie mam zadnego profitu z tego co robie (na razie!) ale jezdzenie na kiermasze i te sklepiki on-line daja mi przynajmniej te troche pieniazkow zeby kupic wiecej materialow i narzedzi zeby dalej tworzyc co cieszy mnie jeszcze bardziej i jestem szczesliwa…

and I just received another totally awesome email from my latest customer telling me how happy she was and this is it – I am so lucky because I get those lovely people buying from me and thanks those emails I know that some of things I created made someone else feel special… that makes me even more happy…

i wlasnie dostalam cudowny email od jednej z ostatnich moich klientek mowiacy jak bardzo jej pasuje to co kupila i jak bardzo si epodoba i w ogole… mam chyba jakies takie szczescie do klientow kupujacych ode mnie ze zawsze sa mili i zadowoleni i wysyalaja mi takie mile emaile ze przynajmniej wiem ze cos co stworzylam sprawia ze ktos czuje sie wyjatkowo… i to sprawia ze jestem jeszcze bardziej szczesliwa…

ok enough of this sweetness, let`s see what I was up to recently…

no ale dosyc tego slodzenia, zobaczmy co to sie ostatnio u mnie dzialo…

I am glad I went to Winchester but this time I didn`t sell much… well what do I expect that on such a lovely and hot day people will come and buy crochet items… anyway I met lovely new people and spent great day with Ania…

bardzo sie ciesze ze pojechalam do Winchester mimo ze tym razem za wiele nie sprzedalam… zreszta czego tu oczekiwac ze w taki upal ludzie przyjda i beda kupowac szydelkowe welniane rzeczy? ale za to poznalam pare nowych bardzo milych ludzi i spedzilam super dzien z Ania…

I do have great news to share as well…

mam dwie dobre wiadomosci do podzielenia sie…

First I finally I have left some of my jewellery to the local craft shop where I wish to have my little space… I was really afraid to do this and this is my debut (actually not quite, because ages ago my friend had a lovely little shop and she had some of my creations there, but this is different)

pierwsza dobra wiadomosc to w koncu zanioslam swoja bizuterie do lokalnego sklepu z artykulami do roznych sztuk rekodzielniczych (craft shop)… a bardzo sie tego obawialam i jest to moj debiut (no prawie, bo lata temu znajoma miala taki fajny maly sklepik i pare rzeczy moich tam wystawiala, ale to zupelnie cos innego)

and other news is I just started making a tutorial for a website (I will put a link when it is ready and published) for a Pencil Case and here is a little preview of it…

i nastepna dobra wiadomosc to wlasnie jestem w trakcie robienia tutorialu dla pewnej strony (dam link jak juz bedzie gotowy i opublikowany) na piornik szydelkowy a tutaj maly podglad…

and last night I got so crazy creative and made this: (soon it is going to listed in my new shop)

a wczoraj mialam napad szalonej tworczosci i wypocilam takie cos: (niedlugo wystawie do sklepu)

oh and one thing more – I have decided to set up a new etsy shop because people know me as Blue Fish Handmade I named my new shop this way and now it is going to be much easier for everyone to find me…

a i jeszcze jedno postanowilam zalozyc sobie nowy sklep ze wzgledu na nazwe, wszyscy znaja mnie tu jako Blue Fish Handmade (a stary sklep “jezzabell13” no nadalam ta nazwe nie myslac wcale) wiec bedzie teraz wszystkim latwiej mnie znalezc…

I promised you a photo of the finished Corset Top I made recently… so here it is:

>SUMMER IS HERE…

by izabela

>if you like granny squares – I have to say that I love them for their simplicity (but you could make very complicated ones as well) – one of my blogging friends – Hannah has set up a Granny Square Swap on her blog and I joined, too and I would like to invite all interested to join as well because it is going to be fun… but if you are worried that you don`t really know how to make a granny square Hannah found some good tutorials to learn so there is nothing to be afraid of… come and join!

jesli lubicie motywy (babcine kwadraty) – a ja lubie je bardzo za ich prostote (chociaz mozna tez wydziergac tak samo i bardzo skomplikowane) – jedna z moich blogujacych znajomych – Hannah oglosila Wymianke Babcinych Kwadratow na swoim blogu i ja tam sie zapisalam, i chcialabym wszystkich chetnych do zabawy zaprosic, a bedzie pyszna… ale jesli ktos sie obawia, ze nie potrafi takowego zrobic hannah znalazla dobre tutoriale do nauki wiec nie ma czego sie bac… zapisywac sie prosze”

summer is here so not too much time for blogging then and having my mum staying with us for few days last week didn`t really help my blog, but I am still here, busy but still making things… my top from Blueprint Crochet is almost ready and fits very well, I have to say that I love the pattern and the way this is book is written so I am definitely planning on next project from there…

…lato juz jest, wiec na blogowanie za duzo czasu nie zostaje, a jeszcze mialam u siebie mame przez kilka dni w zeszlym tygodniu wiec to wcale nie pomoglo mojemu blogowi, ale nadal tu jestem i robie rzeczy… top z ksiazki Blueprint Crochet jest prawie gotowy i pasuje swietnie, i musze powiedziec ze bardzo lubie ten wzor i sposob w jaki ksiazka zostala napisana i juz planuje co nastepnego z niej wydziergac…

anyway my mum told me that she used to love to crochet edges on handkerchiefs with very fine cotton thread and I was wondering why fine crochet makes me so happy 🙂

just finished little green necklace and almost finished new longer orange flower necklace… if you will be quick enough you may get them in my shop, but probably they won`t stay there too long as they are really gorgeous…

moja mama powiedziala mi ze bardzo lubila dziergac brzegi chusteczek do nosa na szydelku wlasnie takim cieniutkim kordonkiem, a ja sie zastanawialam dlaczego tak mnie takie cieniutkie dzierganie tak bardzo cieszy 🙂

wlasnie skonczylam maly zielony naszyjnik i prawie skonczylam pomaranczowy dluzszy… jak sie pospieszycie to znajdziecie je w moim sklepie niedlugo, tylko raczej nie zostana tam na dlugo bo naprawde sa przeurocze (nie jestem za skromna przypadkiem?)

>CRAFT GUERRILLA…

by izabela

>I won the “competition” from East London Craft Guerrilla blog, the blog is followed by me for quite a long time now because I would really like to be there if not every month so at least every other month on their crafty nights… this sounds like fantastic time to me… but as I don`t live in London (only 37 minutes by train to Paddington, ha) and I don`t have no support from my family (my husband – I meant) so I am only planning to go… but well if don`t live too far from their lovely handcrafted events I am sure this are not to be missed… check here for updates on what is going on…

but of course about my prize – it is one year of free feature on their featured sellers site (coming soon) and you can be featured as well – just go on their website for details… East London Craft Guerrilla

***

and about my creating – my two tops (one is going to be a tunic) they are so close to be finished and it is going to be next week with ready photos…

maly update w szydelkowaniu – dwa topy (jeden to bedzie tunika) sa tak blisko skonczenia ze pewnie w przyszlym tygodniu bede mogla je pokazac…

orange top from Blueprint Crochet book by Robyn Chachula

pomaranczowy top z Blueprint Crochet – Robyn Chachula:


purple tunic by me (me!)

fioletowa tunika – calkowicie moja!


and just started little black bolero

wlasnie zaczete male czarne bolerko


and new nature inspired necklace (my beloved tiny crochet hook and very fine crochet yarn)

i nowa szydelkowa kolia zainspirowana natura (moje ulubione malenkie szydelko i bardzo cienka wloczka)

and what I am practicing for some time now, I am rather not putting photos of ready things on this blog (maybe sometimes) because I want to keep it in all life and crafting and children and whatever comes theme and finished objects are going to my blog which is like portfolio of my work and you can find it here

a i co wprowadzilam juz w zycie juz jakis czas temu to to ze zdjec ukonczonych raczej nie pokazuje tutaj na tym blogu (no moze czasami) bo chce go utrzymac jako taki bardziej zyciowy blog a za to staram sie je pokazywac na biezaco na moim blogu ktory sluzy mi jako takie male portfolio a znajdziecie go tutaj

but this one is my first necklace made from very fine crochet yarn and some people say that would be great if I made it with beads but this yarn is so thin that I think it may not be a very good idea… perhaps some seed beads would work better?

a to wlasnie jedna z moich skonczonych rzeczy, pierwsza kolia (naszyjnik, ale kolia brzmi dumniej) wyszydelkowana malenkim szydelkiem, niektorzy ludzie komentuja ze ladnie by wygladala z dodanymi koralikami, ale troche sie obawiam bo jest to napraawde cienka wloczka… moze te najdrobniejsze koraliki sie sprawdza – zobacze…

>CROCHET UPDATES…

by izabela

>I have started a top recently which supposed to be my own design (no pattern, straight from my head) and is coming out good but not perfect yet… and actually first it was top and now I decided to make a tunic… well I see later how it is going to look 😉

ostatnio zaczelam taki top, niby wlasny projekt (bez zadnego wzoru tak sobie z glowy) i nawet niezle wychodzi ale niestety nie perfekcyjnie… i wlasciwie na poczatku mial byc to top teraz stwierdzilam ze bedzie to tunika, ale jak naprawde bedzie wygladac to sie dopiero okaze…

I am making another top but this one is from the book Blueprint Crochet by Robyn Chachula (hmm I am actually reading the pattern and following almost blindly all instructions) and the progress is a bit quicker than my own one…

dziergam sobie tez bluzeczke z ksiazki Blueprint Crochet pani Robyn Chachula (i nawet czytam wzor i podazam za instrukcjami prawie slepo) a dzierga sie ja bardzo szybko, duzo szybciej niz moja wlasna…

but to not get too bored with long crocheting, today, while babysitting my sister`s baby again, I made this cuff I – love it, but already listed in my etsy shop, as I don`t go anywhere where I could wear it 😦

a zeby nie znudzic sie za bardzo dlugim szydelkowaniem, to zajmujac sie znowu coreczka siostry zrobilam taki mankiet (czy tez bransoletke, jak kto woli) – bardzo mi sie podoba tyklo nie chodze nigdzie wiec nie mialabym kiedy jej nosic, wiec od razu wstawilam do sklepu 😦

the lovely button is made by Gill from HollingdaleDesigns, which I really love and I was there shopping again…

guzik jest zrobiony przez Gill z Hollingdale Designs – jest piekny jak dla mnie i znowu zrobilam u niej zakupy…

>TIME TO RELAX…

by izabela

>now after Handm@de Cambridge is over I can sit and relax, but my sitting and relaxing is just again making things, can`t stop, ha…

teraz kiedy cakle zamieszanie wokol Handm@de Cambridge sie skonczylo moge sobie usiasc i odpoczac, no ale u mnie siedzenie i relaksowanie sie rowna sie robieniu czegos znowu, ha…

it was a great venue, but of course I would love sell more, I can`t say I didn`t do well because I did make some profit and this keeps me happy, but I had many things I would love to exchange for money and they had to go back home with me…

oczywiscie podobalo mi sie bardzo chociaz chcialabym sprzedac wiecej, nie moge jednak powiedziec ze bylo az tak zle, bo nawet udalo mi sie jakies pieniazki zarobic i to mnie cieszy, tylko ze tyle rzeczy moglo zostac wymienione na pieniadze, a musialo wrocic ze mna do domu…

I did take any photo of the stall me and Ania had set up, but my daughter has taken this one

nie zrobilam zadnych zdjec naszego stolu, ale moja corka pstrykla miedzy innymi to

I know it is late and I should be in bed but tomorrow I am baby sitting again so no time to write a word… and there is something I would love to show you… I just started a very nice top from the ready pattern, I hate making things from patterns but I bought this book in London Stitch & Craft show and I so want to crochet this and the pattern is great because it is diagram and I love diagrams and when do not have to follow just a river of words I can just have a look on the diagram and I know everything (we`ll see if really everything when I will be done with it, ha) I was missing knitting needles so much that I had to start something knitted and this is a sweater from Yarn Forward magazine but I don`t think I will ever finish that because this is me – knitting needles always end up in the box hidden in the cupboard, unfortunately (but I am still hoping this time this is not going to be true ;])

wiem tez ze jest bardzo pozno i powinnam juz grzecznie lezec w lozeczku, tym bardziej ze jutro ponownie bawie sie w nianie, ale tez nie bedzie czasu nawet na napisanie krotkiego slowka… a mam cos chcialabym pokazac… wlasnie zaczelam sliczny top z gotowego wzoru, nie cierpie dziergac ze wzoru, ale kupilam ta ksiazke na targach w Londynie i od razu stwierdzilam ze te oto bluzeczke wydziergam, dodam jeszcze ze wzor jest swietny bo sa schematy a ja kocham schematy a nie cierpie podazac za potokiem slow, na schemat to sobie tylko spojrze i juz wiem wszystko (to znaczy to sie jeszcze okaze, czy rzeczywiscie wszystko, jak top skoncze, ha) i stesknilam sie za drutami tak bardzo ze musialam cos zaczac – sweterek z gazetki Yarn Forward tylko ze watpie ze kiedykolwiek go skoncze, bo u mnie to druty zawsze laduja w pudle gdzies na dnie szafy, niestety (ale wciaz zywie nadzieje, ze tym razem bedzie inaczej ;])


oh and something from some time ago, look what Ali sent me for our Time For Tea swap, when I just opened the box the biscuits dissapeared in one moment, there where so yummy, good I do not have to share my tea because its great, I got lovely yummy wooly yarn, some buttons and beads and a very colorful coasters, thank you so much Ali! it has been good to be your swap partner 🙂
