1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Jam jar on: July 28, 2015 11:14:05 AM
I've always loved how some people make these old-styled jam jars.. and this summer we made loooooads of various jams.. so I decided it was time to turn some of them into gifts. This is how I started. If you have ani tips or ideas, I'll be glad to hear them! Thanks Smiley

(This one is jostaberry - limited edition! Cheesy)
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Monarch butterfly bookmark on: July 28, 2015 11:04:00 AM
I made this one for my friend's birthday.

It's monarch butterfly, a species very unique for it's ethology. It migrates so far that its life isn't long enough for such a journey - so it takes several generations of these butterflies to finish it!

 Also it seasonally tends to gather, so the trees are then covered in thousands, millions of these butterflies! I just love it Smiley

I came home today and so I could pick up the package from whenindoubtsew! And it's beautiful, I don't know how to thank you, Kylie. I'm sorry for the quality of the photos but I forgot my camera in Prague and it's already dark here.
Last autumn Riki came back from Sweden with a pretty ribbon on her flagella. I didn't believe it would stay there after all her adventures in Australia. Not only it did, Riki arrived with another, Australian ribbon Smiley !And! with two new friends. Kylie, did you craft them? Because these are the coolest stuffies I've ever seen, they are fantastic and I totally love them!!! So cute and original Smiley I'm taking them to my dormitory room so there's at least something nice Smiley And Riki too, of course. I can't wait to show her my university (I'm sure she will be popular especially at the parasitology course Cheesy )

The rest of the things. Some chocolate, nature-themed postcards (great as bookmarks for the loads of biology textbooks I must read now Smiley ), a woven bookmark, the album, a cool stamp with koala at one side and koala footprints at the other one. A kangaroo shaped charm (I've attached it on my school bag Smiley), an Australian travel bug (I can't wait to release it!!), stickers and a cute jar with pieces of Australian nature. The biologist in me is delighted Smiley And! Two wonderful scarves. I love scarves. They both are great but it's too dark here to catch their awesomeness so I'll try to take better pictures tomorrow.

 This is one of them:

The other one has the text of the poem My Country on it.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!

It's so beautiful it makes my eyes wet (I've always had weakness for these things..) although I've never been to Australia. I'm now listening to this poem as a song. Thanks for showing it to me, Kylie.
It reminded me a masterpiece of one of our greatest composers, Bedřich Smetana, who wrote a work called "M vlast"- My Homeland. This is the most famous part, Vltava (the river that runs thought Prague): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdtLuyWuPDs . It gives me the same feelings as reading your poem.

And this is the stamp Smiley

And the jar:

Kylie, thank you so much- for all the places and things (and fauna and flora!) you showed me and Riki and for all these wonderful things. I'm amazed Smiley
Riki will now spend a month with me in Prague and then she will travel with a friend of mine- he's also a biologist- to Cuba. Then we plan to visit Iceland and if I study well and get scholarship we should join an entomology expedition in Thailand next summer/autumn. All the adventures will, of course, be tracked at Riki's blog Smiley
I hope Aussie is well and will have many more adventures and experience in future- I will stalk his travels in the future rounds of this swap Smiley
Thanks once more.

Hey Kylie, sorry for such a late reaction- I usually come back to the dormitory late in the evening, totally exhausted and then I have to read some textbooks so I haven't had much time lately.
I'm superhappy to see you liked the package and whole Aussie's holiday Smiley Thanks for all the nice words! You were a great swap partner as well and I'm so happy Riki could have visited you and Australia- the country I've always dreamed of visiting (maybe I'll once get for some conference Smiley )
If you ever go to Prague you should visit all the places mentioned on your bag Wink
The biscuits are traditional spa wafers, one of popular Czech souvenirs (and my favourite sweets  Roll Eyes ) We eat them as they are, there is sweet powder inside. In winter there are many stalls where you can buy a warm one. But if you prefer them with some ice-cream, why not Smiley Did they survive? I like to give them because they look so elegant, but I suppose they are not so pretty after a trip over half a planet Cheesy
Věda nestrne = Science doesn't get old. It's the bracelet from the science fair in Brno, Moravia Smiley It glows in dark ^^

I moved to Prague today! Smiley And I love it here. Pics from today's walk:

Prague astronomical clock. One of the coolest things we have here (the list of what it can do + a legend about it on Aussie's blog: http://aussie-in-bohemia.blogspot.cz/2013/09/old-town-square.html)

The statue of Jan Hus at Old Town Square.

The Church of Our Lady (Prague Notre-dame Wink )

Oh, Prague, my love Smiley
And tomorrow it is my first day at the university!

I uploaded the rest of the pictures from umava. There are loads.

Venison goulash in a loaf of bread- yummy!!

Čertovo jezero- it is said there was a hole to hell. Nowadays there's just a haunted lake Wink (details here: http://aussie-in-bohemia.blogspot.cz/2013/09/np-sumava-lakes-etc.html )

Amazing caf

With amazing marzipan cakes *_*

Old forgotten Jewish cemetery.

How great memories, I loved this holiday! Smiley

So... my big exciting thing that I was excited to bring Clyde to was wedding dress shopping, which we did today... and in all the excitement of trying on and buying my wedding dress, I totally skipped the part where I was supposed to bring Clyde out and take photos with him!!! I was pretty sad about that. (Still happy, because hey, I have a wedding dress ordered... but still, oops.)

Sooo, will you show us your new wedding dress? Smiley
