I just started with a home decorating. The exhibition took all my time the last weeks and gave me no chance for shopping. But it did not stop me. I got an idea for these adorable soap carving new year decorations.

The decorations are made very easy. The simple soap carving details are attached to a transparent file cover with a super glue. I am in love with the weightless design, the ornaments look so nice on my table new year tree. Do these ornaments sound homey and vintage? And tasty? :-)

"Four Seasons. Frozen Moment" Exhibition Dec 2014 - Jan 2015

I have really great news, my friends. WE HAVE DONE IT! My friend Marina and me are having a personal exhibition at Sakhalin Art Museum this month.

Four Seasons. Frozen Moment.

This exhibition is a result of the partnership with a painter and a crafting person and my friend Marina Puzik. Four seasons are reflected with the paintings and installations made of various natural materials. The exhibition opened on December 23, 2014 and will last till January 26, 2015.

I presented long term fruit and vegetable installations and soap carving artworks. Some fruit details will be changed during the exposition time. I am going to surprise visitors with the variability of the display.

Here are the photos of the opening. Just would like to notice that none of trees was killed, we collected broken wood after a hurricane.

In the next articles I will share the soap carving pictures.

Breakfast with a witch

Are you curious to know what a city witch has for a breakfast? Then you are invited to my home.

Today I have some fingers and aliens to treat you my dears. And a cool refreshing green potion.

Welcome to my kitchen. You will learn a super-easy method of cookie's decorating that you can use for making Halloween treats.
On the pictures you see ginger cookies in the shape of fingers (do you like the nail style?) and green alien's skulls.

Halloween cookie decorating

I used a ginger cookie recipe to make the Halloween cookies as on the pictures. This time I designed  aliens, candy corn flowers, owl, mushroom, pumpkin and evil hearts.
What makes the cookies look bright is the glaze icing of yelk.

Glaze icing recipe:

You need 1 egg. Separate the yellow yelk from the white yelk. We need the yellow part.
Add few drops of food coloring into the yellow yelk and mix well.
If you need glaze icing in more colors just divide the yelk in several plates.
