Flickr favorites - life

Life as we know it...

1. Balatonalmádi II., 2. 365 Day 279. Clerkenwell., 3. Little Singer, 4. Árvácskák

Created with fd's Flickr Toys.

This week I just chose random black and white pictures what catched my eye but at the end they made a really nice an meaningful mosaic.

The first picture with the sailing boat is made on the beach I spent all my summer holidays as a kid.

The second is a self portait of Miss Bunny, a wonderful English artists.

The third is just a great photo I found.

And the last one I think just speaks for itself :)

Customer appreciation

I've been thinking a lot lately how can I add a little something extra to my packages, a little freebee or something to send to my buyers with their purchase and make them a little more happy when they open the envelope.

Finally I decided that I will order magnets with my tulip logo. After long research on etsy I found the coolest magnet seller ever, Ali, alias Buttonhead. Not only she makes really funny and cool magnets, buttons, but she will fulfill all of your wishes (we are talking customized buttons and magnets people!) helps you with your logo, gives little helping tips etc.
She is also a member of the Indie 5 Collective on youtube, you can find more then 200 very helpful videos for etsy sellers, cool tutorials or just very funny ones like this about esty addiction HERE.

And back to my little customer appreciation project, I made little sachets out of unbleached cotton, added my logo with transfer paper, and put the magnets inside:

Audrey Hepburn and my flickr favorites

Last week the theme of the weekly EST challenge was Audrey Hepburn. I chose her famous black and white outfit from the movie My Fair Lady as an inspiration, and I made a lovely fabric cuff. I used a silk embroidered white lightweight fabric and a black satin ribbon with floral motives.

And because it's Tuesday, of course my flickr favorites, to balance the elegant black and white I chose bright colors this time:

1. Untitled, 2. the field - fore !, 3. Mass Ascension Balloons, 4. Ladybug on a peony 2

Flickr favorites - travelling

Summer, holiday, travel - they go together like horses and carriages. (By the way talk about carrigies, did you know that the word coach comaes from the Hungarian word "kocsi"? Well, I know, I am pretty predictable for finding a Hungarian everywhere, haha)

So, the question is, what are your plans for this summer, where do you travel next time and which place would you really visit before you die?

Flickr favorites - people

Created with fd's Flickr Toys.

The inspiration for this mosaic came from that amazing shot from a young Hungarian photographer, Viktor Baumgartner, the girl with the hat (I have something with Hungarian talents, I wonder why? Haha!). I found his work on flickr and I immediately added him as contact. There is something in his work what I like so much, I cannot really get an exact grip on it - not that I have to :)-, are those light or the colors, the compositions?

The other pictures are also Hungarian realted (surprise!): the handsome guy with his book is János Gábor Varga, who makes amazing original, never seen before jewelry under the name Blindspotjewellery. The book in his hand - his book! - it's about something else, it's a nonfictional literary work on health and hygiene. Wow.

The lovely lady with the beautiful smile is Judit Wild, who is a multi talent, she is a sociologist, specialized in media reserach, she also studied photo journalism, and now she is making very unique, lovely jewelry. You can find her jewelry work under her brand name, Vadjutka.

And last but not least one of the hats of my dear friends, Kriszrina, aka Kankalinhats. I already blogged about her :)
