The Crochet Guild Australia

Hello beautiful people!


What to know what happend this Saturday at the Crochet Guild Australia? I hope you all had a great weekend, We just returned from the Sunshine Coast and it was a lot of fun! I was invited to teach Romanian Point Lace at this conference and to participate in the fashion

The teaching was a lot of fun and very challenging at the same time. I never had to teach a whole day! I made them learn a new pattern, a gorgeous Orchid, in Orange. The pattern is to be found HERE. I pre-made the cord so we can focus on fillings. Sadly the lighting is always an issue in every venue we get the opportunity to teach. I guess for the future I have to invest in lamps myself and bring those to teach workshops!


Also if you are after cord and this is the true reason, you could never get yourself to start an RPL pattern, I got you covered! Check it out HERE, you can preorder the cord now in the color you like!


Have a great Sunday!





My 2020

My 2020


My 2020

There is much to say, indeed! This year I became a mother for the second time to a gorgeous little boy. Now the family is complete. Never crossed my mind, that this is the year where we live a pandemic, give birth and almost lose my life almost. This year changed me…. It will never be the same again.

So if you ask me about my highlights…. Here they are in these two pictures…. This year made me happy and sad. This year, will be remembered for sure.
If you are interested to see my work highlights, yes biz is slowly growing. I’m able to help people, heal and create, but that’s not all…. Smile, survive….. Live!

For those who tried to put me down, did not treat me right, I might forgive, but never forget. I have no time to spend with you! I can see how miserable you are! Your energy speaks for you! You know who you are…..

Let’s hope for a better 2021! What is more to say,but #welcome2021 !




Pantone 2021

Pantone 2021

Are you ready for Pantones colour sellection for 2021? I’m beyond ready and love the combo.

Pantone 2021

We are dealing with Ultimate Grey and Illumination. I find that after such crazy year we all need some illumination and Pantone picked the right tone for it!

Ultimate Grey is such a calming, gorgeous colour and goes fabulous with the bright and vibrant yellow.

Pantone colour 2021

So if you love the combo, You are not Alone like Jason Naylor painted. Check out his IG  HERE

AAlso if you are interested in the deck that I’m using it’s from Inna Segal and it’s called The secret Language of colour. I use this deck special when I work on new colour combos for my art or lace jewellery pieces. This deck has fantastic vibes.

Lemon yellow is a colour of inspiration and warmth. This colour is so fun and vibrant, it can boost your memory and can help you in reading, writing and learning. It can you also help being creative and will give you a boost of energy. Try holding a lemon in your hand or something yellow and see what happens. Add yellow flowers to your desk and let the good vibes flow.

Silver! A gorgeous colour of peace. It calmes the nerves and its strong at the same time. Silver grey flushes toxines from the body and helps healing.

Agate necklace

Românofir thread

These shades of yellow are available in the thread section of the store!



Ps: just a few more weeks and this crazy year is over!

If you use crystals have an yellow crystal like Citrine, Amber Yellow, calcite or yellow Aventurine, etc…. And as far as silver/ultimate grey crystals you can use hématite, silver quartz, shungite, silver pyrite, or Herderite.


Night of the Wolves Romanian Halloween

Night of the Wolves Romanian Halloween

November 30th …. It’s a special day in my culture. Covered under the hat of Christianity they call it Saint Andrews but oh it’s so not! Romanian Mythology is dark and heavy…. It’s a night of the full moon, a night of highest intensity and full of magical rituals. It’s Halloween Romanian Style!

night of the wolves

The Night of the Wolves is crazy! Everybody is on the edge, nobody sleeps, garlic galore…. If you are in Romanian at the end of November and you plan to stay in December… You better buy garlic in advance… trust me you will not find one single garlic bulb left!

The Dacians used to celebrate this special day and it was the so-called Sântandrei, the Master of the Wolves. This day marks, the end of fall and the beginning of the hard, harsh winter, the days when the wolves formed packs of twelve in order to hunt.

On this special night, there are some rules to follow, like not calling the wolves, not even saying the word wolf ( LUP – in the Romanian language). If a child was born on that night it has to be given a name that represents the wolf, like LUP for a boy and Lupina or Luna if it’s a girl.

It’s also a night where the gate is open between the dead and the living. For protection people in the villages, rub garlic on the doors or hang garlic around the windows and prepare garlic dishes. It ends up like a party THE GUARDING OF THE GARLIC. Each girl brings a garlic dish and brings three garlic bulbs to be put in the vase.

While the young people dance and enjoy the time together an older lady in the village guards the garlic. In the end, they all get to take one garlic bulb home and have to keep it in a sacred place, like an altar or near the door.

Once, the dead arrives in the living world and the demons, cross over, evil spirits look for the living to catch on back to life. People have to face, the MOROI< STRIGOI , VARCOLACI and PRISCOLICI … Now if you wonder what the hack???!!! Like one type was not enough you deal with Moroi ( undead vampires) Strigoi, ( living vampires) , Varcolaci (werewolf) and priscolici (similar to wolves)… It’s a tensed night and full of mystery. A night where the energy is high, the Hunter’s moon is watching it all.

I’m still looking for the right crystal wolf, but in the meantime, simply breath and let it go.

The energy of the full moon is still very high 24hr after, so its plenty of time to create moon water, and book a Reiki session.

It does not matter where you are…. When you meditate and focus your mind can be in any location….

Beath and howl to the moon….

Have you ever wondered how it all started? Humans were taking bath since the Stone Age. Waterfalls and hot springs, were the places, to go!

Today marks a special day on the southern hemisphere. It’s Ostara day, an ancient event with germanic roots.  Ostara welcomes Spring in our lives. She is the goddess of Spring.

I love this season, a it’s always celebrated with so much joy. Its really simple if you want to do it as well!

Turn to the sun and say thank you for the warmth, the energy and the life it provides.

Ground yourself by walking in grass, give blessings to the soil by watering your garden or plant seeds and let them grow, revive the earth.

In Germany large fire bonds are created along with trees fully decorated with eggs. The egg is the symbol of fertility and spring, and it is also Ostaras symbols. In almost every tarot deck you will find Ostara holding a bunny or bunnies with eggs.

Ostaras tree is the Birch. Use a candle with that smell to waken up the senses. Smudge yourself, your space and crystals. Take a flower bath and create a grid.

This is how you welcome Ostara in your life. If you use healing crystals during this time, make sure to use the right one, like Tiger’s eye, Carnelian, Rhodoronsite, Apatite, Green aventurine, rose quartz, clear quartz of course and thd sunstone.

If you celebrate Ostara, let me know with a comment below!
