Fashion of Spring 2012 - PASTA earrings!!!!

Well, we only have the winter started and it is still 2011...but I saw the other day on the news the new fashion show from Dolce & Gabbana for Spring 2012...and loved the idea!!!

What was the idea?!?!?!

Well you must definitely google it to see the accessories and the clothes of the show!!! It was ALL about Italian food!!!! And what is the first you think when you hear Italian food...but PASTA of course. They were on the ears of Dolce & Gabbanna models at the Milan fashion show. The earrings were enameled farfalle ornamented with jewels and finished with a shiny miniature aubergine. It was in recognition of Italian beauty.
So here are a pair of earrings from the show:

..and here is my idea!!!!

I think that those of the show are too much decorated and they are probably not very comfortable and of course will probably cost a fortune!!!! But mine are very lightweight, more minimal and cost almost nothing!!!

The best comment I got for those was the one from my boyfriend, who was wondering whether we had farfalle at home or not, cause he thought that I had actually used the real pasta!!!
Cool huh?!?!? and for the record...they are 100% of polymer clay ;-)

If you are gonna copy them, PLEASE at least use you own decoration!!!
If you are interested on purchasing them you can find them in my dawanda shop!!!!

It's official summer and I scream for ice cream!!!

Oh!!! how I love summer and especially all the things that comes with it... great mood, sun, warm, sea, sunbathe, long walks, summer clothes, fruits, so much more and of course ice scream!!!

I love ice cream and if I didn't gained weight so much easily I could eat only ice cream and sweets!! Maybe that is the reason that I mostly make miniature sweets :-) Through years I am strongly convinced that I suppress my overweight-me with a lot of struggle and sacrifices!!!

Anyway, after this short prologue, I want to show you my new summery creations!!! Can you imagine what could it be??? But of course ICE CREAM in many flavors and sizes. The great thing about them is that you can order your favorite flavor just like you would in a real ice cream store!

So here is my new mini ice cream counter!!!!

And here are some of the studs in different sizes I have made so far. (notice the squares in the cone in order to understand the size difference ;-)

I haven't listed any ice cream in my shops yet but if you are interested you can contact me in order to do so!!! Furthermore it would be great to "like" me on Facebook where I upload new items more often!!!

Oh!!! And more thing!!!!
What is your favorite ice cream flavor or combination?????
It would really help me to create new minis!!!!! :-)

And last but not least I would like to THANK all my new followers!!! It was a great surprise to see so many people!!! Thank you...thank you...thank you.... :-)

Hope to hear from you!!!!
Mini greek hugs!:-)

Are you a no-reply blogger?!?!?

Do you love blogging or even better leaving comments on others posts?!? Then maybe it is time to question yourself whether you are a no-reply blogger or not?!?!?

What is a no-reply blogger after all? All comments made on every blog are automatically emailed to the blog's administrator, and if you have the correct settings in your Blogger profile, your email address comes with it, allowing the administrator to reply directly to you via email. If your settings aren't correct, you are a no-reply blogger, and there is no way of contacting you.

So if you want to be found here's how to fix it:

  1. In, click on Dashboard.
  2. Select Edit Profile.
  3. Check the box for "Show my Email Address."
  4. Save changes.
Piece of cake huh?!? :-)

New Look!!!

When I started my online shops I really had no idea what was the best way to show off my products. I have read several articles regarding advices and tutorials on how to take the best pictures.
At the beginning I started by using colored backgrounds, but some people told me that it will be best to use white background because it would make the products pop up!!! I tried that too...But now after a long time of experimenting I decided that the white background does indeed help the products to pop up but it gives them a cool look. So, now I use colored backgrounds and favourite stuffs from around the house...I even dig up my childhood's toys in order to accomplish some of my creations. These two photos show you the before and after of the necklace that I've sold too many times and hopefully will continue to sell!!!

So what do you think? Which one do you find most tempting? What is your opinion regarding the photos of your products?!
Just for your information, the second photo is taken at a sunny day in my balcony and it is a bit photoshoped!!!
I really appreciate and looking forward to your comments and opinions!!!

Cheers!!! :-)
