Little girl playing on the yard - special day with a special person

Little girl dreamy portret
I got a great chance to photograph my niece. Look how brilliant she is! I like these pictures in black and white more, but I've also attached few in color.
Her face is full of joy, her eyes are full of hope, world around her is miracle and fairy tale. This is why I like to stay with kids, for some time you recall this feeling of wonder and curiosity which we loose in our life routine. <3

DIY cups for succulent or other plants - my small window garden is getting bigger!

  As far as my little succulent friends are still alive (why it could be opposite - read here :)) I've decided to make them look even more cool on my window.
  First of all - I took the simple and the cheapest plastic cup, PVA glue and pretty thick garden twine. All you have to do is spread the glue over the cup and roll the twine over it. Wait 15 min till its dry and this is it! 
  Next - I've put some decorative drainage into the glasses, pots with the flowers are standing right on this drainage. What you have to remember - is to make few little holes in the bottom of the plastic glass so it wouldn't moisture and condensate.
  Also I've taken an old wooden wine box, cleaned it and painted with white acrylic paint - now it serves as a great decoration to my window!

  Another small decorative tip - you can take small stones, decorative one in any color and different sizes and put it over the soil. It serves 2 goals: first of all it's beautiful and the second - the stones will prevent soil from drying and being covered with a dry crust.
  You must have noticed that I got one more small succulent plant - little aloe. It was sold with one leaf damaged but I think I'll cure it soon..if it won't make surprise to me and die (to understand this creepy joke read again this post). 
The third spot in the wine box is waiting for new succulent plant in my house!

P.S. All the materials for such DIY lesson you can buy in construction materials store, planting store or store with home decor stuff.
Hope it was useful and you enjoyed!

Giveaway - Love is in the air Pillow!

Well, last month I had a wholesale order for the pillows with my design. And I've got the last one pillow which I've left for myself.
Few days ago I decided to give it away to someone who will like it as much as I do, simply share the small piece of my modest art with the World.
So please take part in this #giveaway if you like the pillow and want to spread some Love :) Follow the link to the Grain Pixels facebook group where the giveaway takes place!

I'd like to tell the story that's standing behind one of my pillows.
You see, I have a friend, she is an artist. Asya has always been very supportive and very devoted friend when talking about my art. She is one of the people who inspires you when you feel exhausted, who shares creative ideas and good mood when you need it and loves to make small gifts. Once I had a thought that it would be cool to make her a small gift back so I simply presented her one of my pillows. The same day she had a hard time to get home from #Maidan (if you know about the last events in #Ukraine), caught the car which was going her way. That girl who was driving really helped Asya out so as a gift of gratefulness she presented my pillow to the girl. She told her that someone really special presented this pillow to her and now she presents this pillow to that girl so it would bring happiness to her home.
This is how people share love and warmth, this is what I want to participate in.

May be you are the next one?

P.S. The photograph of birds on wire was taken in November'13 in Goa, India - the most peaceful place I've ever been yet. So may it brink peace in your home too.
