[ DIY ] Pen And Pencil Holder

For All Things Creative [ craft ]

Every new season we start with the new craft project, and recently we discovered that we own a mini stationary store, I mean the amount of pen and pencils we got in the past years has gotten beyond the control. As we are planning to pursue graphic projects in the upcoming months, and hopefully be using pen and pencils on a regular basis, so we urgently needed to organize all that stationary. Using waterproof paint we decorated tin cans and glass jars, using blacks and whites, since this season we've been inspired by monochrome theme. In fact, the creative process on making these was so much fun, so we decorated vases too, because we love to be surrounded by the flowers. This way, we didn't spend even a penny, but using only materials we had. This project reminded us of the value of recycling and reusing, about waste and consumption even at this small scale.

Tall Ship Festival

Tall Ship Festival

Londoners had a chance to watch all of the Tall Ships that have come to Royal Greenwich for the Tall Ships Festival on 5-9 September 2014  (almost 50 Tall Ships attended the festival).  

You were able to view the ships all along the Thames from Maritime Greenwich to Woolwich and farther east. 5 days of festival allowed everyone to have a chance to see ships, and some of them almost 100 years old.

A source for inspiration

A source for inspiration

The Old Spitalfields Market in London has over 350 years of history and continues its story today. Every Thursday it hosts Antique Market theme- antique furniture, vases and other pieces of decoration, vinyl, hats, jewelry, old photo cameras and lots of other stuff. You can even find used watercolor palette here! Old Spitalfields antique market has always been a source of inspiration to me. Amongst tones of antique objects piled on top of each other and next to each other, it feels impossible to see it all, it is truly a place of discovery.
