The Postcards appeared in my store! Now is not a lot of cards but I'm in the process!
I loved to draw cards!
This is completely handmade. I cut the paper with my hands, cover it coffee, draw a picture.
I try to do my cards maximum close to natural. Use an acid free coffee paper. No printing on postcards, I do not use the printer at all!
Finished cards smell the coffee so enticing! I used the coffee paper before - the smell persists for a long time!
I thought up that all my cards will both cards and miniature paintings. They are a standard size 5"x7" and therefore can be easily put in a frame. I plan to paint more in this cozy coffee style. I hope that will be an excellent collection!
I love the story of this card - simple, homely and eternal. The steps to the house, where a table is covered. Gathered the whole family.
I wish you to be with your family on the Christmas! This is so important!
And a few more

Not long is left before Christmas. And I was wondering about the Christmas decor for the home.
Each year, for me the most difficult is Christmas wreath on the front door. It certainly can be easy to buy, but so nice to do it with my own hands.
I collected a lot of ideas on the Pintereste. You are using the Pinterest? I recently rated it as an invaluable storage of useful information in pictures. Simple and clear.
My collection of Christmas wreaths is here Christmas wreath

Lotus is the symbol of wisdom and spiritual opening. Also lotus symbolizes the Cosmos.
The roots of the lotus grows in the mud. Stems are immersed in water. Flower rises above everything and revealed in the sun.
So out of the mud of materialism, through the water of experience, the soul comes under the rays of enlightenment.
This is a beautiful and wise idea, is n't it?
And I found the idea of how to talk about our feelings in elegant and beautiful way.

A great idea, mmm ?
Mother and daughter create these gorgeous origami lotus flowers.
Here's what they write about their flowers:

Two months ago, I visited the city of George Town. It is a huge multi-million city on the island of Penang, Malaysia.
The city struck me with its diversity. The skyscrapers, dilapidated houses of Chinatown, new luxury villas, colorful townhouses ordinary Malays - all of that jast stand near.
Painted his house in crimson, bright blue or lemon yellow is not a problem for these people! They like bright coloures!

I want to share with you my passion for the last month. I discovered the site Etsy.com.
I'm amazed how many talented people from all over the world gathered there! Amazingly beautiful Collage collected from goods on the site. It's just like a quick sets for purchase.
I did not resist and opened a shop for myself. The shop is called MarinaVita, which means marine life. In it, I put my watercolors.
Of course it is not so easy. At the start - zero of sales , zero feedback too, I hope yet. :) But etsy-life captured me entirely!
I'll try under "the history of newbie" to tell how my business in the shop - my steps on etsy . Hopefully this will be an interesting experience.
Oh, yes - that's my store MarinaVita
I hope you enjoy!

Hi! This is my first post in this blog.
I am Marina Vita. The Artist. The Creator. The woman.
My family lives in a journey, now we are staying in Thailand. Thailand inspiring. My beloved husband and my little daughter Anna helping to create.
I am interested in different kinds of art. Now, I enjoy watercolor painting. Later I'll tell you about my other talents may be ;)
English is not my native language. I study it, and sometimes make mistakes. I will be really grateful if you point me to my mistakes.
In the blog I plan to write about women creators.
About the women that create beauty and harmony.
About crafters, hand maders and their works.
There will be interviews with successful women and stories of their career.
Hand Made ideas and inspiration.
Here I am . WELCOME!
Your Marina Vita.
