I’m especially happy and proud to do this post because I can show you what amazing talents live in a little country I come from, Slovenia.
I’ve been following Urška Jenko on her Instagram for a long time now and that is how we became friends (as much as I dislike most of the changes the social media brought along, I sure love this one!).
Urška is a preschool teacher by her profession but her heart led her to open up a beautiful store for kids and décor Vila Malina (meaning Fairy Raspberry) in Celje back in 2005 but due to the impact the global economic downturn had on our country she had to give it up. She was crushed but very determined to keep on and find something new to fulfill her creative soul. And that is how her first paper collection was born.
She most kindly sent me her POT print and our living room never looked more beautiful than it does now. It was kind of funny how my husband and I argued over it when it arrived. He usually doesn’t care so much for these kinds of things but he loved this print so much he wanted to hang it near the couch where he spends most of his evenings but that didn’t fly with me as I want it near my work space where I spend most of my evenings. I guess he’ll have to get his own. Ha!
The most amazing collection of Notebooks, Prints and Postcard are illustrated by Ana Maraž after Urška’s ideas she got from her daily walks in the nature and they present a reflection on everyday life and the desire for freedom of the spirit. She finds the joy in a beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives and she wants to spread the same with her items.
You can order her gorgeous work on her internet site and make sure to also check out her Instadiary (a planner with 18 of your favorite Instagram photos spread inside and on the cover) and Instapic Photos – I need to order those yesterday!
Now the sweetest part of the post: there is an Instagram contest going on with the POT print in game – go see!
