❤️❤️❤️ Hello Everyone! My name is Marta and I would love to warmly welcome you at my blog. I’m a mum and a wife, who is a passionate card-maker. I will be sharing with you my projects and I hope this will give you some inspiration. I also hope that my work will bring you a drop of sunshine, which will brighten up your day. Thank you so much for visiting my page and I hope to see you again. ❤️❤️❤️

Busy of being busy…

It’s been some time my friends since I’ve posted anything here. This supposed to be my blog – the diary of my passion and my everyday artwork. At least that was my goal when I was starting this blog.

My studio got messy and cluttered the same as my schedule. Some days I feel like a dog spinning around trying to catch his own tail. I feel like I’m busy but not feeling as productive as I wish to. Today I read the very important thing that:

BEING BUSY AND BEING PRODUCTIVE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS!

So I’ve decided to make some changes and shift my focus onto things, which has a true matter to me and keeping my blog is one of them. I need to reorganize my working space. I need to declutter my desk and shift my focus onto my priorities rather than running constantly and being active on a hundred groups, spreading myself thin and trying to pull all the strings, which really doesn’t move me in any direction…

My dream, my goal, my desire and my life passion is to become a full-time artist and designer. I want to share my love for handmade crafts with the world and bring some sunshine. I want to spread kindness and love and make this world a happy place…

There is a lot to be changed but the main change always starts from the inside. I had some time to rethink my objectives and to decide which patch to choose. And I hope that returning to my blogging and recording my daily work will be the tool which helps me to improve myself and to make that step toward my dreams.

Thank you and wishing you all the best. Stay blessed. Marta

The project I’ve created a year ago to remind myself all the values I want my Drop of Sunshine to be and represent.

Saving my birthday card!

Good morning my friends!!!

If you are crafting you definitely had some oopsies. I had mine while creating this card, but as my dear friend Elizabeth has commented bellow my tutorial: “in card making there’s never a mistake, only happy accidents!

So I’ve made sure I turned this oopsie into my happy accident:

Today I’ve created this lovely card with good vibe on it. The sentiments are in Polish and they say: time for break, relax, catch a moment and the biggest one: enjoy life. Wishing you all fabulous weekend 😘😘😘

Autumn outside, spring on the table

Today i just woke up to the grey rainy sky and I though that day like this deserves a little bit of springish touch… I had a few pieces leftover strips, so I’ve turned them into this lovely card

All papers are from Spring Morning Dreams collection from Craft O’Clock, I only add a little ribbon, few gold pearls and pale blue stamens, plus this sentiment is die-cut from Spellbinders die. The card is in DL size.

Hope you enjoyed my today’s inspiration and I’m wishing you all a wonderful day. Stay blessed. Marta <3<3<3

Today I want to share with you a very special project, which I’ve made for myself to memorialize this very important time in my life and this huge life opportunity I was given.
