A little touch of magic by WizardsCave

It's so pleasure to introduce new and so magic shop :) Just opened but very successful and they are from Etsy Lithuania Team too.
Here is the WizardsCave shop and them story...
 We know that even greatest magic can hide in the smallest things.
We are couple that loves creating and exploring new things. Most of our inspiration comes from nature: Wild forests, beaches, rivers, ancient myths and magic. We use different techniques and materials to make our products. Most of our goods are collected from sandy beaches of Baltic sea, deep and dark forests in Lithuania, or recycled from other things to give them second life.
Items we make is unique and there will be no same item in the world, our shop is small and it is because we do not make huge amount of things. Each little piece first created in head, then drafted on paper and finally made by hands using lots of love and skills, such as pyrography, carving wood, engraving stone, leather working, flint knapping and more. 
 We put lot of consideration and love in our packaging, we use all recycled materials and make boxes ourselfs so no packaging is the same:) If you would like to see how it might look like, please check our instagram account.

Stitch Leather Goods

We would like to share one of our team members with a great desire :) Here is Mindaugas story and his wonderful leather products in StitchLeatherGoods SHOP.
Stitch Leather Goods started in early 2015 from a desire to create a quality physical product. I've been looking for an outlet to my creative ideas for a very long time. My day job and the product I made were mostly intellectual, with nothing physical to show, touch, and hold in hands. One morning I decided that enough is enough and I want to follow my dream of having a handmade goods business. Leather seemed like a natural choice and thus Stitch Leather Goods was born. The initial reception was so good and rewarding, that I decided to quit my job and focus 100% on building a business that will prosper.
 Every item is produced by hand, with no two items being identical. I measure the leather, I cut the leather, I punch the leather, I sew the leather. I do everything myself, by hand, in my atelier. You can see a lot of my "making of" videos on Instagram and Facebook.
All designs are made by me. I start with a prototype that I use myself before pushing it into production. I source my materials from all over Europe. Only the highest quality leathers are used in my products – I don't deal with genuine leather – my goods are made from full-grain leather and will last many many years, they will age beautifully and you'll be able to pass them on to you children on their wedding day. It's the best kind of investment you can make.
 When you run a small business by yourself, you never really stop thinking about it, even after the office hours. Thus I sometimes find myself working late at night, researching, planning, making sure that everything is perfect. But when I'm not, you can usually find me in a local skate park (Fælledparken), grilling or taking a jog around the neighborhood I live in. Living in Copenhagen has been rewarding on so many levels and I love every second of it.

Do you know - How to take care of your wool items?

WoolenClogs are sharing a great care instruction for wool items. Visit their BLOG to read more great information.
All of you have probably at some point looked at a sweater/another wool item taken from the washer and wondered whose it is as the size did not match your clothes :)
Yes, wool shrinks when agitated with a detergent in changing temperature. Washing it even with all the newfangled detergents that are made for wool can be a hit or miss affair. Here's a few things that might help you to put that washing day further and when it comes -- to get the best result. Read on!

Good news is that wool naturally repels dirt and moisture, so it takes a lot longer to get your woolen sweater in need of a wash than say a cotton one. Airing a woolen item is a good way of getting rid of odours and giving it a few more days or weeks of wear.
Brushing it with a soft brush to get rid of anything stuck is also good. Spot cleaning is advised instead of washing the whole item.

Using a vacuum cleaner is another good way to bring your woolen clogs or shoes back to their clean state.

Finally, when you have exhausted all the other options and do not want to or cannot get your wool item dry cleaned it is time for the wash.
The delicate woolen items such as thin felt scarves, light nuno-felted blouses and similar are better washed by hand in only slightly tepid water with wool detergent. Do not rub or agitate the wool too much -- just let it soak and gently squeeze it to get the sudsy water inside, then rise out and dry your items flat, no hanging!
Other things can go into the washing machine -- be careful to choose the wool cycle and wool detergent, also -- never use a dryer, dry your items flat on an adsorbent surface. If the item is not flat, like slippers or a cat cave, shape it to the desired form by putting it on your feet (for slippers) or using your hands to give it shape.

Happy wearing/using! Do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions about wool or woolen items.

Art dolls with a story to tell by AdelePo

This time we would like to introduce you Adelė, doll maker and artist in her twenties, living in Lithuania – the land of possibilities where she can create dolls and make a living from it! 
And here is her story...

Almost 4 years ago I became a part of the magical world of art dolls. My journey began in Vilnius art academy where I studied set design and puppet theatre. While studying was a great adventure, in real life after a few plays as a set designer, I knew that this path is not for me so I plunged myself into interior dolls. At that time I couldn’t imagine how my life will change after this decision. And here I am, talking to you as a full time artist, who’s building her career from ground up. I guess anything is possible, huh?
My dolls are more than just a decoration, because everyone of them have a story to tell. I bring a unique tale in a little creature. Every costume, every lock of hair, every tiny detail is telling you how special and exclusive this art doll is. I love the feeling when the doll is completed, wrapped up with a ribbon and a hand written story. It’s like another page added to my creation journey. I hope that you can see and feel the same passion, joy and love for life in my dolls like I do.

Stay around if you’re interested in uncommon art of dolls!

DIY: How to make refrigerator magnets

 We are happy to share Art by Asta blog post ablout DYI refrigerator magnets! You can also visit her SHOP and buy anything you want.

Even if it may sound a bit weird, but when I visit others’ kitchen I always take a look at the refrigerator. Some of them are totally clear, some have few fridge magnets with some notes, photos or kids’ paintings, but most of them have lots of funny souvenir magnets from foreign countries. I also always buying magnets from countries I visit for my Mom. She loves them!
Then I started to travel more and more I realized that people really love small little gifts and souvenirs. That is why I started to sell handmade refrigerator magnets a couple of years ago. People really want to have some funny tiny paintings or phrases on their fridges. Original hand painted fridge magnet is also a great little gift for the family members or friends (I know that many of my customers use them as Christmas stocking gifts. It is never too late or too earlier for Christmas shopping, isn’t it? :)
There are many fun and easy ways to make creative magnets. Almost anything can be turned into a refrigerator magnet with two magic things: a little bit of glue and a magnet. Oh and the third thing - creativity :). This article will show you how to make a few simple magnets from stones and wooden blocks like I do.

For this refrigerator magnet craft project, all you need is:

1. Small, lightweight stone or wooden block that is flat on one side. I used rocks that were found on the beach.

2. A magnet that fits your stone or wooden block. I use round button magnet. Remember - pick the right size as you really don't want to see the magnet from the other side.

3. Very strong glue.

First of all, you need to clean the stone / rock. If your object is very dirty, the glue may not stick to it.

Now it is time to create a design for your fridge magnet. It can be a phrase or a little painting. Let your imagination go! Check what I have created.

When your front part is ready, glue the magnet on the back side. If your object is large, consider gluing two small button magnets to the back: one at the top, and one at the bottom. The final step is to wait until the glue dries.

Then your artwork is ready to get a place on the fridge!

Jewelry, Accessories, Candles, Wax melts by MiLiCrafts

Migle love using nature creations in her handicrafts! So here is her story and Shop ;)
Since I was little girl I loved handicrafts, because my grandmother and grandfather were very handy people. They taught me different techniques of creating beautiful things. My grandmother showed me how to knit, sew, crochet and lots of other different things. My grandfather loves working with wood, so had an opportunity to learn from him. All of their life they learn new things and taught me and others. 

As a child I spend all of my summers at the country side where I learn to love nature and use gifts of it for my handicrafts. I liked playing with wood branches, reed canes and grass stems.
As an adult I searched myself for a long time where I belong, what should I be and what should I work. And one day I decided that I want to develop the knowledge and skills given me by my grandparents and open my handicraft shop on Etsy. From that day I make hand-crafted items filled with love and inspired by nature.

Unique jewellery art by DovileJewellery

It's a pleasure to introduce very unique artist DovileJewellery. Here is her story and SHOP.

Hello lovely people!
My name is Dovile. I am Lithuanian jewellery artist currently living and working in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, United Kingdom.

I have studied jewellery and smithery in Vilnius Academy of Arts (Telsiai, Lithuania), Escola Massana (Barcelona, Spain). 
Past three years I was responsible for running the jewellery studio/workshop in Vilnius, tutored jewellery basics.
I'm actively participating in contemporary jewellery projects and exhibitions.

In the process of working, I approach the different materials with the intention to establish a form of dialogue with it. I am trying to find shapes which have no predictable meaning of jewellery being. Mostly I look through painter‘s and sculpture‘s eye rather than jewellers. At the same time, the leading role in materials takes the metal or wood.
The combination of fragile and monumental materials interacts into the pieces I made. Furthermore, the values which have not depended on cultural or time changes for me are essential in contrast with human fragility, soul‘s aches.


Thank you for visiting!

Handcrafted iPad Cases, MacBook felt Cases, Handmade by CitySheepStore

Our story unfolds far away from urban noise, crowded areas and active city life. It takes its start in calm and boundless fields somewhere in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa where finest wool merino sheep graze.
Wool felt - one of the oldest man made textiles - hits the streets again these days.
Our accessories are intended for you - active, free and curious people, open to novelties and a little wild. That’s why we focus our efforts on life facilitating functionality, world saving beauty and pure authenticity.
Every CITYSHEEP item is a distinctive creation made of natural materials and inspired by minimalism and urban aesthetics. 
 And everything started with a wish to lend a new value to old authentic items and transfer some of that value to our modern times. The idea of creating casual felt accessories came by chance, as we discovered merino wool felt intended for products of design. This material is very durable, yet soft, mild and colour saturated. A perfect choice for sophisticated interior, clothing and accessory solutions. We delved into the study of history of this material and its functional characteristics, and simply couldn’t refrain from trying our hands at it. After receiving our first roll of felt we started to experiment.

At first we didn’t have the slightest idea neither of felt, nor of its technological characteristics or ease of working. But we had a vision that our items should be different than usual, aesthetic, functional, high-quality and durable. And although wool felting was already counting centuries until humans learned to weave textiles, we had to make an extra effort to learn to manage this material with precision. Thus in a couple of years of daily endeavour and search the first CITYSHEEP cases were born. Inspiring user responses urged us to move on…
 Today we use genuine leather and natural German-milled 100% Merino wool design felt which is appreciated world over as very high quality and durable material, preferred by renowned fashion and interior designers. For some of our collections we use a truly unique and precious vegetable tanned leather.

So let us start our acquaintance with CITYSHEEP genuine leather and felt cases for iPhone, iPad, MacBook devices, and in the future we promise to present you an assortment of clothing and interior accessories refined to the smallest detail.

Felt clothes and accessories by DressInFelt

Felt story by DressInFelt and her SHOP

I started hand-crafting when I was at school. I sewed a lot, even participated in various competitions.
During studies I took a step back from practical hand-crafting and concentrated on learning instead -- articles about the history of costume in Lithuania was part of my studies.
 I came back to crafting when my baby daughter was born -- she inspired new ideas. I started researching felt and what possibilities it had for me. Felt is like clay -- you can mould it to any form you desire - from a ball to a thin dress, thick coat, carpet, yurt or a painting. This attribute of felt is what inspires and impresses me, what creates a challenge in my work.
When I felt I think about the person that I am making a particular piece of clothing for, so I felt in positive emotions and feelings.
Most of all I love to felt for the littlest of us -- babies and toddlers. Even an indirect connection with little children gives me unbounded joy so I make these articles with great love.
I grew my hobby into my daily business so I can create with love every day.
