Handmade by Evantine

Since I was a little girl I liked to “craft” various things, to make myself or to adapt things that I need, starting with bracelets, necklaces or other home objects. During the winter of 2016 I started making for relatives and friends little handmade boxes, painted or using napkin technique. Since the first products, my friends and colleagues have supported me, encouraged and recommended me (and I thank them for that). By their guidance, I created a Facebook page, “Evantine – Handmade“, to make my projects known to the others.

I like creating for people and for my soul, I enjoy their smile when they receive my handmade objects and I like to know that part of me is with them. Over the time I’ve bought brushes, canvases, colors and tools for drawing and calligraphy, building for myself various things while looking at tutorials on the internet in order to learn techniques and find inspiration. Many people ask me how do I combine my hobby with the job that I have, given the fact that working for a corporation isn’t quite easy and it takes most of my time. There’s never enough time for all the things that i want to do, however I’m very relaxed while painting or crafting, usually after work hours or during weekends.

I’m sure I won’t get rich by taking this hobby to the next level, though I wish I’ll have enough patience and time to take new projects or even invest in myself by taking some courses in order to better my technique, experiment drawing on glass or fabric and develop the calligraphic side.

De mica mi-a placut sa “mesteresc” diverse lucruri, sa imi fac sau sa imi adaptez lucruri de care am nevoie, incepand cu bratari, coliere sau diverse obiecte pentru casa. Din iarna anului 2016 am inceput sa fac pentru rude si prieteni cutiute handmade, pictate sau prin tehnica servetelului. Inca de la primele produse, prietenii si colegii de serviciu m-au sustinut, incurajat si recomandat (si vreau sa le multumesc pentru asta ). La indrumarea acestora, am creat o pagina Facebook, “Evantine – Handmade“, pentru a face cunoscute proiectele mele.

Imi place sa creez pentru oameni si pentru sufletul meu, sa ma pot bucura de zambetul acestora cand primesc o lucrare de a mea si imi place sa stiu ca o bucatica din mine este alaturi de ei. De-a lungul timpului mi-am cumparat pensule, panze, culori si ustensile pentru desen si caligrafie, facand pentru mine diverse lucrari, incepand prin a ma uita la tutoriale pe internet pentru a invata tehnici si pentru a ma inspira. Multa lume ma intreaba cum pot imbina hobby-ul meu cu meseria pe care o am, avand in vedere ca munca in corporatie nu este chiar usoara si imi ocupa destul de mult timp. Timp niciodata nu este suficient pentru toate, dar pe mine ma linisteste si relaxeaza atunci cand pictez sau mesteresc, de obicei seara dupa serviciu sau in weekend-uri.

Din hobby-ul asta nu vreau sa ma imbogatesc, dar imi doresc sa am rabdarea si timpul necesar sa pot face proiecte noi, si chiar sa investesc in niste cursuri pentru a-mi imbunatati tehnica, sa experimentez desenul pe sticla sau pe material textil si sa dezvolt mai mult latura caligrafica.
