* bookend magic *

I love books. I absolutely LOVE books. 
I love how they smell, I love how they feel ...(weirdo) I love that magical world that they create when you read them. 
With all that said I have lots of books, I mean a LOT. 
Having lots of books on your bookshelf can be a little bit boring so I wanted an easy way to dress it up. 
I was looking on Pintreset ( where else?! ) and these were my favorite  ideas : 

1. 2. 3. 4.  
After all the researching I decided to be CREATIVE and make my own bookends. 
You need to know two things about me: 
 1.  I am obsessed with maps, airplanes... basically everything with traveling.
 2. I love collecting things ... " Don't throw away that "amazing" tissue box/toilet paper roll/ container, we can use it for something..." 

So here is what I came up with :

A-Z, here it is. I hope you liked it, and you'll be creative this weekend! 
Don't forget to RECYCLE

Be yourself, be happy, be creative,

* Make someone happy *

Making someone happy is really easy, so why not do it with some homemade little gift cards? 
I've recently mailed off some packages for my family and friends in Hungary. 
I wanted to make something thoughtful for them, but I needed something flat and small to fit in the packages, so I decided on making unique 3D cards for them. 

They are easy to make ( as always) so use your creativity and make someone HAPPY today! 

Be yourself, be happy, be creative,

* You can do it *

1.  2.  3.  4.  

Valentine's Day is really hard if you are in a long distance relationship. It's important to make your loved one happy. That's what my husband did. He painted me a super cute clothespin, just like the one on my inspiration board. (4.) It was one of the sweetest things he made me during our long distance stage. 
So when I started to plan our Hungarian wedding, I looked at that little clothespin, and decided to make our wedding favors just like the one HE made me. 

They are cheap and easy to make, and I think they are amazing gifts cause everyone will know that you made each and every one of them.  
Here is how I managed to make them by hand for all of the guests for our wedding. 
P.S.: If you have an insane amount of guests you might need some help from your friends and family to make them :) 

For my wedding I painted the back like a rainbow, and on the sides, I put our names and the date. I think everyone loved them, and I hope I could help you with this little project. 

Be yourself, be happy, be creative,

*Hungarian doughnuts*

February was the Carnival season in Hungary. I remember when I was a kid and my parents and grandparents were busy making those yummy round doughnuts for the carnival. My most favorite ones were not the ones everyone thinks of when they hear the word "doughnut". 
They are crispier and have a different shape, and if you ask me, I'd tell you that they are much better than the regular ones. 

I hope you will try it, they are so delicious!

Have a wonderful day!
Be yourself, be happy, be creative,

* wonderlust *

I had a long distance relationship with my husband for almost 3 years. I live with him now, in the United States, so now I am doing long distance with my parents. It is not easy, but it has made me love everything related to traveling. I love maps. I love globes. I love them because they remind me of my family, all the things we have been through, and all the adventures that are ahead of us. I love looking at them and thinking about my past and our future. 
That's the reason I started collecting globes, atlases, maps, and I am having some success finding them in thrift stores. They are super cheap, and you can use them in so many different ways to decorate your home.

Today I am going to show you how to make a nice picture out of cute little map planes. 

Be yourself, be happy, be creative,

* Easy peasy painting *

I absolutely love painting, and for a long time I really wanted to be an artist (I still think about it sometimes ).
All that being said, I know that not everyone has the talent to paint something amazing.
Today I would like to share with you a super easy way to create a piece of art for your home.
I was inspired by our bedding set because our room needed some art. 
Let’s get started!
