Oscar de la Renta.....

His designs are truly a dream and since yesterday the fashion world lost a beautiful soul. Designer Oscar de la Renta had always a special place in my heart. His designs made me smile. Oscar showed his love for handmade and crochet in almost every collection.
RIP, Oscar you gave us a beautiful world and made every fashion season and red carpet a pleasure. Your creations will live forever....

I would like to celebrate his style and designs with a special illustration and his last collection.

Enjoy  and celebrate his designs!

Introducing MoirasArt .... Polymer Clay Jewellery and my Crochet hook

I am exited to introduce to all of you a wonderful brand MoirasArt. I discovered this wonderful brand while creating a treasury on Etsy and was fascinated by the jewellery pieces in the shop. After a few conversations and emails I decided to order something for the shop that is custom made.

Like you all know I use my crochet hook every day. I had a hook that belonged to my great grandmother and I was never really able to use it for a long time because it;s so thin. It was time to make this hook work and the only solution was to have it custom made. I love my vintage JMRA hook and now I can use it!  The time was right to have it revived.

I explained the issue and Moira suggested to create a polymer clay crochet hook holder for me. If you want to try to create a crochet hook holder for your hook Moira has a beautiful tutorial. It is inspired by Gustav Klimt and a touch of retro. I am in love with my custom hook.

And since Christmas is around the corner, please visit MoirasStudio and discover cute ornaments ready for your tree or perfect as a gift.

Thank you Moira for creating something so special to me and making it into a piece of art. 

Please check her Facebook and Twitter
Be social and share the love! 

Stay tuned coz I have another surprise for you!

In the mornings...

When it comes to morning job rituals, I try to keep it simple. Checking emails and answering phone calls, is one and after that the game of social media can start.....

Do you have any morning rituals, when it comes to your job?
While drinking my coffee or tea, I try to upload images with new products, introducing new designs to my beloved followers on Instagram ,  Twitter and of course let's not forget the Romanian Point Lace Facebook and the Illustration Fashionista Art Facebook fans.

Keep in on touch and showing the little pleasures in life like a great Nespresso Coffee, is a little thank you to all of you who, follow, ask and are interested in my work. 

Are you a lover of Nespresso? If yes, what is your favourite?
I am truly a sucker for Livanto and the new limited edition Cubania. 
You have to try it, before it's gone! 

The same goes for my illustrations.... keeping my dear followers in touch with the latest illustrations, is a pleasure and a must! I have to admit that my monthly newsletters for both Romanian Point Lace and Fashionista Art are slightly late. I try my best to keep up with everything and sometimes, it just slips away form me.  

How do you keep up with the social media madness and everything else?

Carpe Diem and a Great Weekend!

Colour trends for 2015

When it comes to colours I like them all and I am fascinated by all. You probably see it in my Illustrations  that I use a lot of colours. When it comes to my Accessories yes I follow some trends and do some items on request with specific colours. 

Do you follow the colour trends every season? 

If yes, what do you follow, the whole  palette for the season  or just a few ?

I am glad to see that lime is back on the trend palette for 2015. 
I am in love with this colour this year!
