one of my most favourite things to do is making gifts.

this week i’ve occupied myself making a baby mobile for a pregnant friend


work in progress. and if you’r wondering it’s dinosaurs


then decided my baby needs some sort of mobile too and the quickest way to get one is by making this decoration…emm….thingy from a bunch of thin cardboard packaging boxes




it’s blurred cause i gave it a spin. it kept spinning for quite a long time afterwards actually and the background is blurred because…..because i know my photoshop and thought a radial blur effect would be appropriate…


the flower printed segment of the decoration thingy was once a packaging box of some cheapish pantyliners. not sure why i’m telling you this.
anyways take a good look at it cause i’m switching to reusable ones for good. yes, i’m making them myself.

bottom line: making this paper mobile wasn’t too time consuming, i got to use some of my paper junk and baby thinks it’s fascinating. maybe she thinks it’s a UFO.

dinosaurs and pantyliners……could be a good start to a story (no, it couldn’t)…   you see, when i was little, my dad being a poet and passionate about all things russian language, played a bunch of language related games with me, one of them was just take too things completely unrelated whatsoever and make up a story about them. not so easy as it seems 🙂


until next time.

go make some handmade gifts for your loved ones 😉
