Say “I Love You” to Yoursef

Approaching the day of the lovers. Actually, it is a day of the love messages.
Do you love yourself?

Here is a small creative assignment – write a love message to yourself.

Probably, it is easier you to write to a loved one than to yourself but let’s try.

It would be good to share it because it can be helpful to another. Yes, that’s right – your message to yourself can be instructive to another.

Let’s try to be kind to yourself, and explain your own love to yourself!

That is healthy act, let’s learn to do it!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

With love to myself and to you,

Iva

Christmas is knocking on the door

Christmas is a wonderful time. I love it ! 🙂
People express the best of themselves around Christmas. It’s time to create different things. What did Iva’s Art House ?

I like to use recycled materials. They are a great inspiration for me. I used recycled and new materials, and made ​​unconventional, but very nice Christmas stockings . The Christmas stocking is the most popular symbol after the Christmas tree.

A part of them

Table runners and placemates are part of the Christmas decorations in your home. Iva’s Art made ​​a small collection of them :

I’m proud of wall hanging art quilt “Christmas Night“. It is a wonderful wall decoration .

Wall Hanging "Christmas Night"

The new non-traditional item by Iva’s Art is a sweet surprise for your loved ones. It is a special wall hanging Christmas decorations.

Non-Traditional Christmas Decoration

There are several ideas on how to use these pockets:

1) If you have two children at home, you can put in the pockets some candies or small present some days before Christmas (for 24 or less) as a sign from Santa that he is coming soon. This had become a tradition for my children that they follow-up to this day as adults with their kids. It is fun and brings the Christmas spirit to your home in morning.

2) You can write the name of your partner in life – husband, wife, girl- or boyfriend or fiance. Every day before Christmas, you can show your love with small present or simply a written message, such as:

You are the best thing that had ever happened to me!
I can’t imagine life without you!
You are the most important person to me.
You make me happy.
Thank you about your care!
…. Or all that your heart feels.

These thoughtful ideas can warm-up every soul and make the day special in the Christmas spirit.

This season you can buy also Christmas wine bottle costume.

Christmas - Cover of Wine BottleSome bags for Christmas candy are available too.

Thank you!

What is “Baba Marta”?

It is a very interesting Bulgarian holiday and I want to explain it.

This holiday called  is”Baba Marta“. In English, this means – old lady Marta. The Bulgarian name for the month of March is Mart because the old lady’s name is Marta. She is like Santa but brings martenitsa. There is different stories to Baba Marta and her symbols but I will describe them shortly.

What is martenitsa?
On first of March, the Bulgarians tie on their hands or on the clothes, knitted from white and red wool yarn amulets. This called is martenitsa. The wool yarn is a symbol of work and prosperity. The red color symbolizes the love and life. The white color is a symbol of the wisdom and peace. The Bulgarians belive that martenitsa brings health and luck, and that is good sign before spring.
When the Spring comes, the people tie martenitsa on a fruit tree in bloom.

You can buy martenitsa from e-shop, if you want to share the Bulgarian tradition. It is for health and good luck and it is fun.

Happy Baba Marta and  Happy Spring !

… and candy for you!
