Why I do that?

Because my hands never rest.

More precisely – they rest when they do something.

Then my hands talk between themselves and with me.

You can see the results of these conversations, here or on etsy.com


Because I am never bored. How about you? πŸ˜‰

Because life is art.

Be creator of yours.



Cheerful Lady’s Backpack

I made this backpack for me. The reason was family summer trip to the west coast in the states of Washington and Oregon.

Cheerful backpack

It is similar to a purse, but the most convenient to use for vacation activities. I also use it for a walk in the park or a picnic somewhere.
For this project I used 99% recycled materials – jeans, stretch cotton pants, cotton sheets, handles, zipper, buttons. Only thread, velcro and batting are the new materials.

It was fun to completed all these materials and create the design. The realization of this project was relaxation time for me.
In backpack, there is a special room for a bottle of water because water is a very important thing for our health. It should be with us everywhere.Β Here are some details of the backpack:

Picnic and shopping bag

Here, I show you a project, part of my recycle art . I used denim, cotton sheets, burlap, cotton T-shirt, buttons and polyester batting. Design is a result of my imagination and my experience to organize luggage for easy moving and use. There are many great pockets on the lining.

Wreath “Baba Marta” – A Strange Project

Do you remember the Bulgarian tradition “Baba Marta“? You can read it again if you forgot.
This is a beautiful and fun tradition for health and happiness.

To decorate with a wreath is not typical, but I love it. This year I made a project “Baba Marta Wreath.”

Here’s how it started.

the beginningTwo weeks ago I made both dolls from yarn. They are a characteristic symbol of tradition. Their names are Pijo (for the man – white doll) and Penda (for the woman – red doll).

Pijo and Penda

I wanted the wreath to brings spring mood and to looks fresh. That was the reason to used plastic flowers resembling snowdrop.

Why is it lovely to have a pillow cover with a picture?

Pillows are an important part of our home decor and our rest at home. But they can be a wonderful memory about people, places and events. It will remember you about this matter every time when you see the pillow if you have it somewhere at home. Also, it is an unusual way to give this memory as a gift to someone. It means that this person, place or event is very important for you. Often these gifts are a great surprise because it is so exciting to see yourself or the memory on the pillow.
Here are some pillow covers by Iva’s Art House and their stories.

These pillow covers were make for Christmas gifts.
