In the down of the first day of the year, the young peasants cross the villages wishing and singing for bearings and health.
they are dressed in the their traditional clothes and they carry a whip to hit the earth for good crops and a “bunch of flowers” called Sorcova. The flowers are paper made and are very colorful. They sing wishes songs and bless the audience with the flowers. It is a good fortune sign to have a Sorcova in house and to received the waits.
I wanted to make myself such a Sorcova and I used folding paper techniques to create it. As I am in love with Origami art from my childhood I used it to create my flowers. I made them in this Japanesse way and I attached them on a wooden stick as they are in Romania. Here you are my original mixed cultures Sorcova. I hope you like it.

This week seems to be by one hand – a holiday and by the other hand – hard working week.
After we were waiting for Santa all the night we were lazy next day enjoying the presents and telling bout nigth miracles.
Admiring the Christmas tree, looking at the biking lights, we felt a deep warm and joy, a moment of “return” to childhood. That memory popped up the Christmas preparation when I was young.
I remembered the wreath embellished with paper flowers. That time I used Origami art to decorate the house, now I used silk an beads to create red flowers for Christmas time.So this week is busy with decoration work. For the entrance door i created a wreath and for the living a ball t hand from the ceiling,
Enjoy this hard working week of preparation.

Hello and Marry Christmas for all of you!
I hope you spent a nice Christmas time and you found many presents under the Christmas tree.
This year our tree is tall and thin, so we called it the “little ballerina” as those who are dancing on a music box. Usually our Christmas tree were rich in lower branches and looked old and impressive. This one looks young and “fresh” and dynamic. It brings a new feeling, something new, although this is an old tradition this time it happened something different, like a “young generation” is leading the holiday .
I am admiring it shinning from its little lights clock and it really seems a new beginning, an announcement for the New Year Eve.
Inspired by its brightness I beaded a delicate earrings pair, a winter jewelry for the New Year Eve celebration.
Have a good time!
The Christmas day is approaching but the snows hasn’t fallen yet. Last-minute shopping are done in a hurry and then we go to look for the Christmas tree. In the car we hear on the radio a try nice idea: ECO presents.
Let me tell you about this because i found it very interesting, very clever and really ECO.
This guy makes an one minute broadcasting about ECO stuff and he really is a involved in the matter. Each times says the boring things in a funny way, giving solution to avoid wasting the energy, the resources and so on.
This time he suggested to buy those you care after something useful, nice and healthy as a subscription for a spa complex, or for a gym club, or for those who prefer music, a ticket for a concert.
The imagination can explore farther in this are and i believe the idea is very good. Is spares the receiver to say a convenient “thank you” and the offerer to answer the same.
Have a Christmas full of nice present you like!
