About Me

Hi, I am an artist/crafter from Czech Republic.

In most cases international mail may take between 2-3 weeks to arrive overseas, one week within Europe.

I work full time at a social rehabilitation for people with disabilities. We help them to develop day-to-day skills like shopping, cooking, taking care of their home. We also try to give them a chance to participate in social life by organizing group activities. We also do a lot of art and work therapy and work on their reading, writing and counting skills.

I do all my crafting in my free time. Painting, drawing, making collages, notebooks and journals, hand carving stamps and much more. Also love making wire decorations and handmade jewelry.

In my free time - except of crafting - i like to read, watch movies and nature documentaries, go for walks and play board games with my family and friends.

Last summer I got a furry friend - kitty named Mia. She is now 10 months old. love of my life :)

cat

Top 3 recently read books: A Man Called Ove, The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden, All the Lights We Cannot See

I like:

  • bakers twine
  • washi tape
  • paper clips - fun shapes like animals, stars, bicycle, lightbulb etc.
  • birds, cats, foxes, bicycles, typewriters (motive, illustration, patterned paper...)
  • cards, stationery, stickers (no Disney, Barbie Hello Kitty or Diddl, Kawaii etc stuff please)
  • animals and nature illustrations
  • clear stamps
  • letter writing papers
  • notebooks (handmade or store bought)

Tea: Chai tea, lemon grass tea, vanilla flavoured tea, green tea. Not a huge fan of fruity teas.

Colors - love turquoise, white, brown combination. Polka dots. I like any color really, but don´t like pink.

I love:

  • scrapbook paper, even the small bits

  • project life cards

  • brown craft paper,

  • postal stamps with animals and flowers

I love all kinds of mail art, seeing what people can create is always fun. But I am not a huge fan of ATC's or zines. ATC's are just too small for me.

I love much more handmade postcards (4x6 inch or bigger) and decorated envelopes

Postcards: Illustrated ones, absolutely in love with Marie-Anne Foucart postcards! Receiving one of her cards would make me happy for ages!

I love Daphne's Diary magazine, Frankie magazine and Flow magazine and Flow books for paper lovers. I also love to use in my collages images from Anthropologie catalogs and adore any pictures from Somerset Studio magazines. So any pages or bits from those would really make me happy!

My cat likes small toys with feathers and smell of Valerian. She loves cat treats Dreamies (Temptations)

I like and can´t get in Czech

  • sharpie pens and ultra fine sharpie markers
  • composition books (grid paper)
  • any craft or planner goodies from Michael's and Target

  • Reese's Pieces and Peanut Butter Cups

  • Maple flavor (for baking cookies)
  • Yogi Kava Stress Relief Tea
  • Tazo Chai tea

I Don´t like:

  • Badges and pins
  • Make-up, face care, nail-polish or nail-things
  • Disney, Barbie Hello Kitty or Diddl, Kawaii etc stuff.

Comment: Thanks for that adorable No. 1 vintage mini pocket letter! :) The floral paper matches great to the washi. It's not overembelished at all. Also thanks for adding some DIY rosettes, they look pretty interesting.
