Хомячок challenge

Новый блог Хомячок challenge разыгрывает конфетку:

до 1-го июля.

А еще у них проходит набор в дизайн-команду по квиллингу: вот здесь.

Надо показать свои квиллинговые работы, пусть у меня будет эта:

Это такая загадка: в негативе там в цветочном круге выложено имя Аня. Издалека или в уменьшенном варианте читается проще. ;)
Другие еще можно посмотреть в блоге по тэгу quilling.

4th wedding anniversary card

Yesterday my husband and I were celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary. Each anniversary usually has a name, this one is not very popular, but turned out to have three names: linen/flax, wax and silk.
Recently I've been interested in the idea of making a card according to the anniversary title (even wrote an article about that: Открытки к важным датам - sorry folks, Russian only, but can translate with no problem if someone cares =) )
So, I had a wonderful opportunity to experiment with my own anniversary.
That's a linen-wax-silk card I made for my husband:

Used lilac color because we had a lilac wedding, lilacs are like a symbol for us.
So, the card's covered with a piece of linen, embellished with lilac silk hem stitching (God, I practiced it when I was in pre-school for the last time =))) ) - and another symbol: each stitch wraps 4 threads ;)

Two hearts outlined with wax paint and flax seeds are cut outs. And in between the hem stitches I inserted a piece of real wax. Painted with wax paint a little too. It can be taken out and rolled in a candle. Didn't have a chance to do it so far, but I'll show you what it looks like when it comes to rolling =)
So, with this card I'm entering a challenge:

Thanks for looking!

Mexican cuisine ATC

Hi all!
First of all, ladies, I need some support, being nervous lately. Last weekend had to call an emergency for my doggie, and today we are just back home from the surgery. She's a strong little old lady, she's almost 16 now, but so far she feels good sleeping on my lap. Poor little thing, I'll have to perform a lot of manipulations to her tonight... Send us some smiles, please, we need it for recovery!

And now to the post subject. I had two ATCs: Italian cuisine and French cuisine. And I'm going to continue the series.
I found a challenge
Нашла челленж, хочу поучаствовать: Challenge for clay/ - #4, food miniature, till the 20th of May.

I thought it would be a great try!!! I used clay for creating three traditional mexican dishes.
Использовала полимерную глину (флер-груп) для создания трех мексиканских блюд

To whom it may concern

Lately I've been p*ssed off by my livejournal: can't view the friends' updates, can't open up any "cuts", can't post, can't comment - just because it's always down and I was mad at that "Zero sized reply" message I got 100 times a day! So, ok, I thought, hell with you, LJ, I'll stay at my blog here.. "Ha-ha, - said Google, - wanna more freedom? Be free!" - and threw me away from this damn blogger. And closed my google-account. Thus I could neither write anything, nor view my own blog, nor find any blogs I followed, and of course couldn't comment and lead my normal life of some blogs co-author. Hardly got it back today morning.
Sorry about that, guys!
But there's little I could do about it =( And I have no fine idea whether these problems will be back, when and how, and what to do %\ So, on one beautiful day I'll probably move to some other place - where everything depends on me and not some f*cking stupid service like this google-account.
Thank you for understanding!!!
And sorry for swearing ;)

Для тех, кто интересовался, что случилось с моим блогом. Гугл решил, что я произвожу "нетипичную активность", и вырубил на фиг мой аккаунт, в следствие чего - ни посмотреть, ни написать, ни прокомментировать, ни отредактировать - вообще ничего и никак, даже зайти не могу, заодно и блог вынес к чертям. С трудом восстановила сегодня утром. Будет ли это безобразие повторяться - понятия не имею, не от меня зависит. Служба поддержки, как все знают, на блоггере отсутствует в принципе. Так что если что - извиняйте, не моя вина %\
Вообще задолбало уже, комменты писать не могу, ЖЖ вечно падает, найду место поприличнее - уйду туда... %-Е
