Monica's DIY Blog
I am a hardcore crafter at heart. I've been dabbling with arts and crafts for almost a decade now, and over the years it has still remained one of my favorite activities ever. I've tried different techniques and materials, but I've fallen hard for the beauty of paper and quilling. Lately, I'm trying newer things, like making DIY lamps, recording video tutorials or making candles and bath bombs with my very own lavender flowers.

My client wanted to gift these cards for a Romanian spring holiday, the equivalent of the International Mother's Day and the butterfly became a symbol of fragility and beauty, happiness and hope.
I had so much fun making paper flowers this spring - they were actually therapeutic at a time when I was feeling overwhelmed by what was going on with the world. So for a couple of weeks, I began my day making mandalas with paper flowers. Some were so pretty I just had to save them for later. Some became posters, other became puzzles.
