SPRING...

 
… has finally reached the middle of Europe, too!

So, may I introduce you to our big apricot tree: 


 It was the only tree we could rescue while building our house… it is very old and taller than the house now…


This tree makes me happy in spring, when it is in full bloom and in summer, when the fruits ripen.

So, how did I get inspired by this beauty?!

apricot tree inspiration + ring base + fabric flower + big rhinestone = fashion jewelry


... and ...
 
apricot tree inspiration + designer paper in vernal colors + embellishments = another one of my “beloved” sticky-notes-booklets :-)


 ... and the inside ...


Have a great week and thanks for stopping by saying hello!

  1. Beautiful tree Uli! So glad you got to keep it. Spring is my favorite time of the year! I love all the beautiful flowering trees. We have dogwoods blooming right now, and I love them. Your book is gorgeous too! Love the colors and the feathers and butterfly!

  3. Wow! This is fantastic Uli and soooo beautiful. You really do make some gorgeous projects. That is such a lovely book. Do you print your own note paper up, or have it printed? I would be willing to say that you should make one of the top three at Creative Inspirations Paint for April with this. Hugs, dj

  5. Ulina, Both of these projects are simply awesome. The softness of such a statement piece (the ring) and the pure joy anyone would experience to open those notes daily... A.W.E.S.O.M.E.
    Cheers!
