How was your Easter party?

Here in Russia Easter is celebrated on the 12 of April, 2015.
Last weekend we had a class on making Easter garnishes. At the class I taught how to carve spring flowers out of vegetables and how to make Easter bunny with fruits.

We arranged some branches in a vase and decorated them with soap carving eggs, paper eggs and mini plants in the egg's shell.

On the photos you see my ideas of eggs dyeing. They were fun to do with kids. I liked the chicks and the kids liked to do the Minions ))

Soap carving New Year decoration

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.
