Christmas Brooch Sale



Odločila sem se za rahlo decembrsko presenečenje. Letos me ne boste našli na nobenem sejmu, bi vas pa vseeno rada obdarila, vse tiste ki si želite nekaj posebnega in unikatnega. Verjetno že poznate moje broške. Za vsak motiv je najprej narejena ilustracija v akvarelu, ki jo kasneje natisnem na blago, skrbno zašijem in naredim broško.
Vse broške, ki so na razpolago lahko vidite v moji Etsy trgovini. Broške bodo cel december po znižani ceni. Lahko mi pišete tudi na moj elektronski naslov mateja.lukezic@gmail.com.
Vesela bom vsakega vašega pisma.

To Be On Creative Live - Sell More With Instagram with Sue B Zimmerman

Niti v sanjah si nisem predstavljala, da bom bila nekoč del izobraževalnega programa velike ameriške platforme kot je Creative Live. V tistem tednu pred nastopom niti nisem veliko razmišljala o tem kaj vse to zame pomeni zaradi vsega adrenalina, ki je preplavljal moje telo. Začel se je nov teden, prah se je polegel, ampak moji občutki so še močnejši in čutim neizmerno hvaležnost. Hvaležna sem Sue B Zimmerman, ki me je opazila, verjela vame, me podpirala in na koncu povabila da lahko predstavim svoje delo in povem svojo zgodbo. Hvaležna sem Creative Live, ne samo zaradi tega ker sem bila del njihovega izobraževanja, ampak predvsem zato, ker sem se iz njihovih predavanj ogromno naučila. Profesionalna ekipa, izjemnih ljudi. 
Hvaležna sem za vse niti prijateljstva, ki so se spletle. Spoznala sem čudovite, ustvarjalne ljudi. Predvsem sem hvaležna, da kljub temu, da sedim doma, za svojo mizo, nisem ujeta v tem malem prostoru, ki jo premore Slovenija. Čez veliko lužo sem sklenila vezi, ki me ohranjajo, da ostanem ustvarjalna in delam to kar imam rada. In komaj čakam, da tja tudi odpotujem. 

Spodnjo sliko mene na Cretive Live je naredil avstralec Johnny (na Instagramu ga najdete pod @chocolatejohnny), ki je bil gost v studiu in dela izjemne čokolade.

I never imagined, not even in my dreams, that I will be once part of the educational program of major US platform as Creative Live. In the same week I did not think much about what this means for me because of all the adrenaline I had in my body. Now the course is over, but my feelings are getting stronger and I feel so grateful. I am grateful to Sue B Zimmerman, who spotted me, believed in me, supported me and finally invited me to present my work and tell my story. I am grateful Creative Live, not only because I was part of their course,  but mainly because I learned so much from them. They offer so much. They are professional team and exceptional people.
I am grateful for all the friends that I got in the last months. I met wonderful, creative people. I am particularly grateful that despite the fact that I'm sitting at home at my desk, I'm not trapped in this small area of Slovenia. Over the sea  I've made a lot of ties that keep me to stay creative and doing what I love. And I can not wait to get to US.

On the bottom you see photo of me and Sue on Cretive Live, captured by Australian Johnny (on Instagramu you can find it under @chocolatejohnny), who was a guest in the studio and he makes exceptional chocolate.

Fall In Love


Jesen je pokazala svoje prečudovite barve. Po mesecu lepega vremena je prišel tudi dež. Nič hudega, letos je zares bila radodarna. Upam le, da dež ne bo predolgo trajal, vseeno sem še polna planov. Jesen je eden izmed ljubših letnih časov, kar pa ni bilo od nekdaj. V šolskih dneh se semptembra nikoli nisem veselila in takrat mi je jesen pomenila le začetek šole. Tokrat je drugače. Navdaja je me z mirnostjo, ob lepih vremenih me sonce nežno boža in barve jeseni so najlepše, še posebej za fotografijo.

Moja nova ilustracija je zato igra besed. Jesen in ljubezen. Ljubezen do jeseni. Ilustracija je že na volji v Etsy trgovini.

Autumn has shown beautiful colours. After a month of good weather came the rain. Nevermind, this year has been really generous. I just hope that the rain will not last too long, I have still so much plans. Autumn is one of the favorite seasons, but this was not always. In school days September was never happy month and It meant to me only the beginning of school. This time is different. It fills me with calmnes, on the beautiful weather sun gently caress me and the autumn colors are beautiful, especially for a photography. 

My new illustration is therefore a play of words. Autumn (Fall) and love. The love of autumn. Illustration is already in my Etsy shop.

Portugal

Močno smo že zakorakali v jesen in jaz sem naivno mislila kako bom imela veliko več časa za blog in kako zelo sem se motila. Upam, da mi niste še vsi pobegnili, ampak zadnji mesec je bilo noro. Na začetku me je obsedel neki nori virus in se me držal več tednov. Onemogočil mi je normalno delo in tako je tudi za blog ostalo manj časa. Kmalu zatem je prišlo potovanje na Portugalsko, ki sem se ga izredno veselila, čeprav sem imela slabo vest zaradi vsega nedokončanega dela. Osem dni na Portugalskem je minilo kot bi mignil in ko sem že mislila, da me je virus zdaj zares popolnoma zapustil, sem se dobro zmotila. Ponovno sem obležala, sedaj zares. Visoka vročina, boleče grlo, prehlad, kihanje in kašlanje, da mu ni konca. Vmes mi je uspelo se kot krpa odvleči do delovne mize in opraviti zares nujne stvari in potem nadaljevati na kavču ali postelji. Danes je končno bolje. Nisem še čisto svoja, ampak pomembno je, da krivulja raste v pozitivno smer.

Z vami mi rada delila nekaj fotografij iz Portugalske. Z partnerjem sva se podala na ta 8 dnevni izlet precej spontano, brez hudih planiranj. Začela sva v Portu, kjer sva rentala avto in se podala v smer Lizbone. Vmes sva se ustavila kjer naju je bila volja in kamor je pokazal prst na zemljevidu. V Lizbono sva prišla dva dni pred odhodom, ravno toliko da sva začutila utrip velikega mesta. Spremljale so naju različne dogodivščine, katerim se zdaj nasmejiva. Vseh fotografij mi še ni uspelo pregledati, tukaj pa je nekaj za pokušino.

*
We are already stepped into autumn and I naively thought how I would have more time for a blog. How wrong I was. I hope that someone is still here. The last mont it was crazy. At the beginning I was possessed by some crazy virus and held me for several weeks. I was disabled to work normaly and the same happened with blog. Shortly afterwards there was a trip to Portugal, which I wes very excited, even though I had a guilty conscience about all the unfinished work. Eight days in Portugal is passed in a jiffy, and when I thought the virus finally leave me, I was wrong again. Again I'm lying in the bed. High fever, sore throat, colds, sneezing and coughing. In the meantime, I managed to drag myself to the table and do necessary things and then continue on a couch or bed. Today is finally better. I'm not almost good, but it is important that the curve is growing in a positive direction. 

I want to share with you some photos from Portugal. With my husband we went on this 8 day trip quite spontaneously, without serious planning. We started in Porto, where we rent a car and headed in the direction of Lisbon. In the meantime, we stopped where we want and where the finger on the map lead us. In Lisbon we arrived two days before departure, just as we felt the pulse of a big city. We had variety of adventures, and now we can laugh about that. I can't manage to sort all of the photos, but here are some few, to feel Portugal.

Mushroom pattern


September naj bi bil mesec ko zaviham rokave in se lotim svojih projektov. Otroci so v šoli in jaz imam več časa, da se posvetim delu. Predvsem imam več miru. Seveda pa vedno ne gre vse po planu in tudi tokrat ni nič drugače. Že drugi teden se borim z virozo, ki se me še kar drži. Največja težava je, da si ne vzamem dovolj časa in odležim. 

Vseeno pa mi je uspelo začeti z delom z mojimi dolgo pričakovanimi voščilnicami in h krati sem se začela poigravati z vzorci. Poleg kartic so vzorci nekaj kar že dolgo planiram. Tokrat so malo bolj jesensko obarvani. vse je še v nastajanju in že veselim se končnega izdelka. 

Ilustracija lisice in volka (brez napisa) sta še veno na voljo v moji Etsy trgovini.  

*
September would be the month when I roll up my sleeves and do my projects. Children are at school and I have more time for my work. Above all, I have more peace. Of course, not always everything goes according to plan, and this time is no different. For the second week I fight with virosis. The biggest problem is that I do not take enough time for rest. 

However, I was able to start working with my long-awaited greeting cards and also I started playing around with the pattern. Cards and pattern are something I plan for a long time. This time they are a little more autumn-colored. everything is still in progress and I look forward to the finished work. 

Illustration of fox and wolf (with no caption) are still available in my Etsy shop.

Children Creative Workshop Mini poletje



Večina poletnih nedelj sem preživela na Ljubljanskem gradu, pred Mini teatrom. Vsako nedeljo so nas z otroci združile kreativne otroške delavnice pod mojim vodstvom. Premagali smo muhasto vreme, nekajkrat celo bežali v varno zavetje gledališča. Delavnice nam je popestril tudi veter, tako da nismo bili samo ustvarjalni, ampak smo se razgibali ko smo lovili svoje izdelke. Presenetili so me otroci, vsakokrat so ostali do konca delavnice in izdelali več izdelkov. Nekateri so se na delavnice vračali. 
Kljub temu, da je bilo poletje delovno, sem ga preživela v prijetni in ustvarjalni družbi. 
Na naše veliko veselje so nas obiskali z revije Mladina in nekaj o nas si lahko tudi preberete v članku.

*Otroške kreativne delavnice so bile v sklopu Mini poletja (z Mini teatrom) v sodelovanju s Sezamom, združenje mladih, staršev in otrok.

Most summer Sundays I spent at Ljubljana Castle, at the Mini teater. I had Creative Workshop for children and we do different things each time. We beat the moody weather, sometimes we even escape in the safe place of theater. Workshops diversify the wind, so we were not only creative, but we exercise when we chased our products. Children surprised me, they stay until the end of the workshop and made several products. Some also have returned to the workshop.
Despite the fact that it was working summer, I spent a pleasant and creative society.
To our great joy we were visited by the journal Mladina.

* Children's creative workshops were part of the Mini poletja (with Mini teater) in collaboration with Sezam, an association of young people, parents and children.

Ben Again

Vem... spet Ben. Kup novih stvari je, ki vam jih želim pokazati, ampak čakajo, da jih uredim preden jih objavim. Glede na to, da je Ben moja velika inspiracija sem se tudi tokrat odločila, da ga delim z vami. Tokrat objavljam drugačne slike, ki ste jih navajeni. Malo sva se igrala z belim ozadjem in mislim, da ni je prav dobro izpadlo.

It's been awhile

Minilo je že nekaj časa od zadnje objave. Nekako mi ne uspe narediti vsega začrtanega. Poletne počitnice, kar pomeni da zna biti delo od doma precejšen izziv, ko imaš polno hišo otrok. Potem je tukaj še ostalo delo, ki je vezano na poletje in na koncu ostane precej malo časa za blog. Na sploh ko moraš slalomirati med vsemi temi stvarmi, ukvarjati se z vsemi socialnimi omrežji. Planirala sem, da bo poletje čas za moj osebni projekt. To sem bila v zmoti! Ni mi hudega in nikoli mi ni grozno, da se plani spremenijo, važno je le da se kolo vrti naprej.

It's been awhile since the last post. Somehow I fail to do everything I want to. Summer holidays, which means that it can be work from home quite a challenge when you have a house full of children. Then there's the rest of the work, which is linked to the summer and in the end remains quite a bit of time to blog. In general, when you have do all these things, deal with all the social networks and the others things. I was planning to summer time for my personal project. I was wrong! I'm ok and for me it is never terribly when plans change, what matters is only that the wheel rotates forward.

Playfull Nautical Story With A Purpose


Ilustracija je natala na pobudo Sue B. Zimmerman. Se jo še spominjate? Spoznali sva se preko predavanja o Instagramu, ki ga je vodila. Opazila je moje delo in navezala kontakt z mano. Od takrat naprej sva neprestano v stiku. Sue je vedno polno enkratnih idej in ena izmed mnogih je tudi ta. Prišla je do ideje, da naredim ilustracijo z nautičnimi elementi, otroki in labradorcem za skupni projekt. Kaj več o tem izveste kasneje ko bo stvar pripeljana do konca.

Po slikah lahko vidite kako je ilustracija nastajala, od skice do končnega dela.

*
The illustration was created at the initiative of Sue B. Zimmerman. Do you still remember her? We met through classes on Instagramu. She noticed my work, and then she contact with me. From then on, we are staying in touch. Sue is always full of great ideas and this is one of the many. She came up with the idea to do an illustration with nautical elements, children and Labrador for a project. More about that I will tell you when we were finnished.

You can see a little process how illustration grow, from the sketch to final work.
