Holiday preparations

Today I spend all day in the kitchen,and girls decorated the tree and windows.
I'm so tired of cooking and baking and making cookies for holidays.I have no time for anything else creative.
Well cooking is kinda creative but it is also boring sometimes (like now).
I made 7 different kind of cookies(not all of them today),I had to make lot of cookies because girls are going on New Year party with their friends and everybody have to bring something-so they are bringing cookies.
I definitely will not going to cook for few days after this because I made SARMA-our national meal,and I made A LOT of it (I can feed small village somewhere in Africa with all the food I made).
Marko (my DH) will bring roast pork from his job (he's a butcher),and I'm going to make a delicious side dish with mushrooms,eggs and hard cheese.There will be also a salad that we call Russian salad-with cooked vegetables chicken,eggs and mayo,and also sour cabbage salad.

Also have to make a birthday cake for Tamara (on January 2nd).
My B-day is just after hers on January 3rd,but no cake I hope that there will be enough cookies.
Yes we are having company for New Year party.
My sister Maja,her boyfriend,his sister and nice,my husband's brother with his wife and my sister's friend,with me and Marko it is 9 persons.
Hope that it will be fun.
P.S. Maja is preparing more food to bring for dinner.
If I survive all this food -will write in next few days.
Happy New Year to everybody.

My house and the neighborhood

This first picture was taken from my bedroom window,it's first snow this season.

Someone once asked me how my neighborhood looks like,and I promised to send the pictures.
Here it is-my house and neighborhoods across the street in the valley (my house is on the hill).

Of course there is lot of regular looking houses near me.

Altered suitcase

I have finished this old suitcase,you know I posted pictures how it looked before.
Well after all things that I did to HIM,here is how it looks now.

more art

So I said that I will upload few more "art pieces",and here they are.
I will cut them out and collage them on journal pages or made them into cards or paper dolls or...or...
I'm still learning...

Mama made me a new dress

Well all young ladies need a dress so I made one for Milica.I saw something like this on some website about dog's clothes.
I also made her a collar and the leash,but she still refuses to wear it.
So I was doing something...
Now I want to make her a jacket because it is cold in here.

Art journal

I was surfing the net in last few days and find lot
of interesting websites and albums with beautiful
journal pages.

I had to try doing this and here are my results.
I have also find few You tube movies with different instructions for making journals (links are added in “you tube favorites” on the bottom right).
I can’t buy moleskine in here so I decided to make one but this is still in progress so I will upload the pictures when it is done.
In the meantime I’m drawing in regular journal.

Our new baby - Milica

Here is our new baby.
Her name is Milica,and she is our new toy.
She likes to cuddle and sleep.
I have to be careful when I walk because she is always somewhere around me.
Can you beleive that she sleeps like this?

Here she sleeps on Ivana's slippers.

First night she was sleeping in the box.

Look how smol she is.

I'm back

OK I haven’t posted for a while but I have a reason for this.
Well first I was sick than after 3 weeks doctors find out what is the matter with me and I started taking pills.Now I’m OK-well almost.
Second thing is that we have a new family member –baby kooker spaniel girl who goes all around the house doing you know what and I’m going after her cleaning you know what. She still can’t make it on the newspaper (she did it somewhere in this area).


Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company's Christmas Party. Jack is not normally a drinker, but the drinks didn't taste like alcohol at all. He didn't even remember how he got home from the party. He wondered if he did something wrong.
Jack had to force himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table.
And, next to them, a single red rose! Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house.

He takes the aspirins, cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror. Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick: 'Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian'
> He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table eating.
Jack asks, 'Son, what happened last night?'
'Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then got ill in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.'

Confused, he asked his son, 'So, why is everything in such perfect order and so clean? I have a rose, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me??'
> His son replies, 'Oh THAT! ... Mum dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, 'Leave me alone, I'm married!!'
