Our weekend was full of food and culture :)! We were at the cinema and theatre and at home we watched The Weeds serie (hate the addiction on series :D).. Yesterday we were making SUSHI (some vegetarian with cucumber and some with smoked fish) and GIMBAP - korean sushi (with cucumber, ham and egg omelette) - for the first time :)! It was quite fun and also tasty, but I'm not sure about the taste of nori because of its fishy odour..
And as a desert we had some korean fruit looks like half apple half pear (the right one on the pic).. I don't remember how it names, but i have to find out, because the taste of it was
a little bit weird, but cool :)) and I want to try it again..
So look and tell me, what do you think ... .)
And how was your weekend .)?

new things for my fler.cz shop.

I've created a new rubber stamps for my fler.cz shop (something like etsy, but for Czechs and Slovaks) - one with squared panda and one with the title "hand made by PANDY." (PANDY. is my nickname on this webside), so I had to use it also for some creating :)... I made some new paper things - stationery set with colour envelopes and a a set of envelopes with hand painted funny pandas.. and some textile things - a tote bag and a maxi t-shirt with a little panda.. here it is :)..

I was drawing all evening and here it is, my first pics in my moleskine :)... I just love it!
I know I'm not the first one with the concept "What I was wearing today.." but still,
I wanted to try it too :) and I think I was doing quite well, some people told me, that she really looks like me, so I think I'll continue with this concept :)! (yeah, the right one is much much better, that black marker sucks, B pencils rocks! .))

..yesterday I made my oral exam of Che zech Lexikology.. then I went to my boyfrined's place, but I was so tired, that I slept almost all afternoon.. and today, when I should start to prepaire for my latin test? I still have some sore throat and sooo lazy, I haven't even look at it.. but for the other side, I practised my english, haha.. by watching a beautiful movie La Belle Personne in french but with the english subtitles, because czech subtitles for this movie doesn't even exist :D.. I think my love for chamber romantic french films from the The Sleapers' era is back .)! Love those beautiful people, envolving of their characters, interesting web of their relations, that specific colours, which I can't named ..and of course that lovely french language! I really recomment you this movie!.. here's one screenshot I made at least.. but watch it all ;)!

..and there's another lovely thing of today! in the morning I got an envelope with these beauties :)! they're pincushions made by one skilfull lady from fler.cz :).. aren't they too pretty for the needles? so I desided to use the blue one as the pincushion and the second one as a decoration .) ... hope you like it as much as I do .)!

..I just finally ordered two pretty moleskine notebooks... actually one of them is a sketchbook.. yeah, Dennie will draw with her favourite 6 and 8 B pencils and cool black liners :D..
