Just stepping by for a Happy Halloween! We’re at the carving our pumpkins stage right now! A skull for us πŸ™‚ 
Hope you are having a wonderful time you guys! It’s 4:50 pm here we’ve eaten so much already and there just so much to go. In case you are wondering what i’m dressed, i had an identity crisis and wanted to be a queen, a zombie and a killer. So i just went with queen of hearts, you can spot a small heart on my butt πŸ˜›

How could that line contain so many emotions? “In the house in a Heartbeat”. The terror..

I was never one to be up to horror movies. Like in NO way. Like if i saw one, which i would never they would leave me for weeks of terror. Constant terror. I would be mostly afraid of zombies. Oh man, the way they walk.. what they do. I couldn’t make myself handle the thought. Somehow, truly awkwardly, i have grown up to have an obsession with the fear of them. This is so weird. I swear i can’t explain it. 
Maybe it was when i saw how serious and -not stupid how most films show- a zombie invasion could be in the 28 days later. The music, become my life’s soundtrack – that’s how much i love it. I have an enormous passion about music that hits you to the core of your soul. That EPIC music. I usually get that with lots violins, orchestra and discordant notes. I’m so glad i just sat down and gather all that music that gives me chills, not because i’m afraid, but because i’m in awe. That is so strong, like terror. John Murphy, totally knows what i mean. The guys is just epic

Could i be more excited to present you this week’s featured Etsy seller? Nope, i couldn’t! People like Vasiliki, just make me proud.

Could i be more excited to present you this week’s featured Etsy seller? Nope, i couldn’t! People like Vasiliki, just make me proud. Unfortunately i don’t always find so many awesome Greek etsy shop owners or bloggers. They are somehow not quite into those things. But when i found Plexida on Etsy, firstly i was taken by how beautifully made are her goods, the quality, the style are all so well made! It kinda reminded me oysho, which is like my favourite shop ever. But when i saw that Plexida, belonged to Vasiliki from Greece, that was a whole another level of excitement!  

A little bit from Vasiliki… 
My name is Vasiliki and I am from Greece. I was born in Kozani, a small town in Northern Greece, where I quietly spent my childhood. I’ve been living there since. I now have a loving family, my husband Panos and two amazing daughters.


and a little bit about her work…

I’ve been knitting by hand for over 30 years. It all started at primary school, when my loving teacher, Mrs Mary, teached me how to hold the needles. All my other classmates thought it was a chore – I loved it instead. I remember spending my spare time trying to knit small gifts for my best friends.

I haven’t stopped knitting ever since. The last 3 years I’ve been working at a local yarn store, I’m surrounded by yarns and colors every day. Some time last year I decided to start sharing my creations online, not only with my beloved ones. I’m glad I took that decision because since that time I feel very fulfilled doing what I love.

Can you believe it? We’re already just 3 days away from Halloween! I for once, don’t! With that weather outside, people going to the beach it makes it hard to believe that October is already ending. Have been feeling so nostalgic for the days that we started to have the temperature drop! 
But i’m most definitely certain that i’m excited for my first Halloween! Spent almost all weekend searching DIYs, decorations and recipes. It’s not going to be a big thing, just me, hubby and our two best friends. Will carve my very first pumpkin (we’re doing a contest, with a prize!) will be eating lots of candy, and we’ll watch a horror movie. For the sake of celebration i made some invitations as well! Wanted to keep them simple, dark and funny. I used the Pirates Two dingbats for the skulls, the glorious Black Family for the main font and the ornament from Ornamenta Monumenta. I just printed the invitation in a half of A4 plain paper, and glued on a water-colour black painted piece of Bristol. 
My absolutely favourite of them all, are the black baby’s breath! Just some black hand spray and they definitely look spooky! What i would do of course if i didn’t have my spooky list to write all the recipes, decorations i need to craft and shopping list? Here are a few that’s on now, and are to be made for the Halloween party: 
1. Sprite and Grenadine Vampire Drinks
2. Ghost Balloons on the ceiling 
3. Flying Ghosts for the balcony 
4. Witches’ Broom appetisers
5. Evil eyes for the corners in the dark
6. Dark Chocolate graveyard mousse 
7. Mummy Candles 
9. Personalised packages with treats and jellies 
10. and i already made a silly halloween wreath

After waiting for those more than a month, they finally arrived a couple of days ago! I’m pretty much excited with how they turned out, although there were a few minor mistakes, like the paper type.

After waiting for those more than a month, they finally arrived a couple of days ago! I’m pretty much excited with how they turned out, although there were a few minor mistakes, like the paper type. I just can’t take my eyes from that golden logo! 
It was high time i designed new business cards and i really wanted to focus a representing design. So i aimed on having something simple with that dusty pink i adore lately, and the golden detail. With the back being even more simple in just black and white. Thankfully it will take a lot of time getting rid of those 1000 pieces! Hope you enjoy a lovely and restful weekend πŸ™‚

I’m always bombarded with so many ideas for the blog, that i haven’t posted any mood boards for quite a few months! Projects have come and gone, but i hope i’ll post most of them in the future. My latest project has been for a lovely photographer, whom work i admire very much. 
The project: We’re aiming for something light, dreamy and clean, with lots of use of watercolour and calligraphy. As you already know, i’ve been quite obsessed with water colour lately, so this project has given me a lot of freedom, creativity and practise. Can’t wait to share with you our final work!

I’ve had the pleasure working with my water-colour and calligraphy for the past two weeks on a client project working on now. A couple of days, i couldn’t help myself but play with some colours and blend them together. As you know, i’m not pretty fond of colours unless it’s July, but after writing yesterday’s post, i realised how often i say to my self “Cheer up. You’re unique” and it really calms me down. 
Because i know you’re not all like me, waiting for some dark clouds to come out i thought i should brighten up your day, well at least those who want a little bit of sunlight at least!
