Fall – Winter 2022

Hello my Dears!
My goal for the week was to write a blog summarizing the past months and the autumn-winter fairs.
The last time I wrote a post was in June.
Next month, I would also like to write a newsletter or a blog so that the many experiences that happen to me and do not pile up.
Maybe its all better for us because I don’t have to write a novel 🙂
I save time for myself and for you too 🙂

Who’s up with procrastination?
Did you think that I was the Queen of procrastination? 🙂 A friend of mine told me this week that we procrastinate because
we can’t decide which task to start with, which exists in a huge bubble in our head, so we need to write it down, as a goal,
as a daily task and break it down into parts.

I have to give her credit.

Blogging was such a bubble for me. My God, I wrote a blog half a year ago. It will be enough this time to write about the present and a short summary of the fairs.
I divided the content of the newsletter over two days, so it took much less time.
I am proud of myself 🙂 I wrote the newsletter instead 🙂
It’s okay, I had to write that too.


Hello again!

First of all, I would like to say THANK YOU to my existing and future customers who trusted me to create their unique stamp art pictures. 2 of them traveled abroad. One to Finland (Papillion dog) and one to Italy (portrait of Queen Elizabeth II) and both arrived safely. The other 3 remained in Hungary (Portrait of the dachshund, the little mermaid and Her Majesty on a pink background.)
I can’t show you the last one yet, because a very lucky lady will receive this as a birthday present in December. )


PS: You can place your individual order until November 27. You can order without frame as well.
I post worldwide (without frame)



New products are on the way…

…and they are also very colorful, like my personality 🙂
I can’t live without colors. The more, the better 🙂
I started painting with iridescent watercolors, I even tried to make them myself (so far with no luck). I bought everything: pigment powder, gum arabic, glycerin, mica powder, painter’s knives…only I didn’t have the recipe…that’s why it didn’t work the first time. Maybe next time 🙂

In my hands, not only stamps, but also old, antique, antique-effect frames and mirrors are reborn.
Let me show you my first attempt.
I asked my followers on IG and FB who would have liked the blue frame better:
For Marie-Antoinette or Cinderella?
Cinderella won 🙂
I will keep this, but the rest will be available at the fairs and hopefully in my webshop next year.

In the image below you can see how my first iridescent watercolor painting turned out with the addition of some die cut postage stamps.

Summer of 2021

My dear Followers and Customers!

More than a year has passed since my last post, but what a year it was !! Bad and good things have happened to me, but let’s focus more on the good things and within that this summer.

The market season was opened by Kiskert Piac ( Little garden Market) on May 30, 2021, on the Seagull Promenade at Mom Kult. This fair was pretty successful.

Many people stopped at my booth, they were interested in my stamp art pictures, we talked a lot and some of them came back… The first picture I have sold was the map of Italy that I have made out of 100% used Italian postage stamps.

Another location for Kiskert Piac has been Anker Avenue, next to Madhouse in the 6th district.

In the summer I have found a new location, namely the Agárdi Almárium in Gárdony next to Lake Velence, which is about 50 km away from Budapest. Agardi Almarium is a Producers’s Market, Bistro, Culture Park, and a Distillery at the same time.
All the markets I have attended during summer, I had the biggest table there 🙂

See below:

This producer market has stolen my heart. It is a very family-friendly place with live music, champagne, breakfast, live theatre for kids and last but not least great people. The organizer, Kriszti Virág, is a man of all hearts, who was very positive about my products after our first letter exchange 🙂

Here I met Ildiko right at the first fair, whom I invited to my booth and after she came over, immediately fell in love with the Hand of Fatima and all my other stamp creations.
After talking with her for a long time, I learned that her great love was Ecuador because she has worked there as a missionary in one of the miserable colonies 20 years ago. She told me a lot about her experiences in Ecuador and the Galapagos islands.

We agreed that if I could find Ecuadorian stamps, I would make her the Map of Ecuador.

None of us seriously thought I was going to find Ecuadorian stamps within a short time…

I ordered them at the end of July and in 2 weeks, just on 13th August, which was a Friday, it arrived by post. There has never been a Friday 13 so lucky day in my life. As soon as I received the envelope, I opened it and saw that one of the stamps was stamped with 1889-1890 !! I was holding a 126-year-old stamp in my hand! I thought I was fainting. From whom I bought the stamps, I asked her where she bought them and she replied that she got them at an auction. It belonged to an old man who had a collection of four garage stamps …

I immediately called Ildiko to tell her the good news … she was completely fainting too. I told her I wouldn’t have time to start the map in August, but it would be ready in the first week of September. That’s how it happened, but we still had to wait for the handover. First, she got sick, then I did.

Unfortunately, I was not present at the handover because I handed over the wrapped picture to her parents, later that day Ildikó called me crying that it was prettier than she thought and thanked me for putting the island of Galapagos separately because Ecuador is an integral part of Ecuador and is visible on every map. The color of the stamps was the same as the colors of the Ecuadorian flag (yellow, blue, red) and I compiled the map with this in mind.

Ildikó gave me free hand in everything. Here is the result. The picture is now next to an Ecuadorian weaver in her bedroom. Every morning she wakes up, she returns to her memories to where she was once very happy. I am glad to be a part of her happiness.

I also traveled to Ecuador a bit in my thoughts 🙂


3 fairs were planned in September, but unfortunately, I could attend only the last one.

I had sinusitis in the first 2 weeks of September … no matter how much I wanted to go to fairs, I couldn’t because I knew if I didn’t rest, it could last longer, risking my health.

On the last Sunday of September, there was also a designer fair during Anker Avenue , where I arrived with a new collection.

I combined the stamps with the collage technique, which took me to a new dimension. In addition to the collage, this year I will also decorate my pictures with metal leafs and colored foils, which will give my works a special atmosphere.

Noémi, my jewelry designer friend also visited me 🙂

Thank you for reading my summer stories.

My next fair will be in the Szimpla Kert on 20th November, 2021 from 12-18.

I hope to see you there.

My first market in Gozsdu

Dear customers!

I am 4 days after my first market which took place in Gozsdu  udvar on the 1st August 2020 in Budapest.

Many of you does not know what Gozsdu is.

Gozsdu udvar is actually a courtyard which is between Király and Dob street. Designers, artisans, antique and retro vendors are selling their own crafts. A market with a unique atmosphere in the heart of Budapest every weekend. Combined with the many restaurants in the Gozsdu courtyard, it is a great place to relax and have fun.

I used to live in the 7th district. Dob street is in the 7th and Kiraly street is in the 6th district. I used to come here frequently many many yrs ago and in my mind Gozsdu was something different. Not a flea market as it is now. Maybe I was  “blind” and it was always like this.

It has several courts and we were located in the 5th courtyard, next to a restaurant which was closed and thanks to this we could use an extra 2 meters for the installation beside the 2 meter long table.

Most of the people ( I was amazed that there were many foreigners) were in the first 3-4 courtyards and the rest just passing through.

(1 week before my first market we visited Gozsdu to see what to expect. I was a kind of disappointed… only 3-4 sellers were there, maybe because of the bad weather…)

It was one thing that people passed through, we were counting with it as well. What we did not count with were those little bugs which were coming out from the closed restaurant. Because of this we did not dare to put down my back pack which I brought the food in .

Because of this feeling what if we will bring home them , did not give us peace.

The morning we left home to Gozsdu I told my husband, that I will be happy if we sell 1 thing from our products. Well, we sold 1 thing 🙂

The waiting itself was very tiring. By the end of the market I head a huge headache and it lasted for 3 days 🙁

I’d like to mention that my husband was a huge support and help before, during and after the market. 🙂

He is my handyman 🙂 Thank you for being there for me!

He was creating a “little car” where we could put all the framed and unframed pictures, paper bags, washi tapes, stampels, stickers… and bring to the scene as you could not go in the courtyard by car. We were lucky to find a parking lot nearby.

His work are the stampels  as well ( featured image on the top) what you could try at our table and you will be able to try in the future as well.

 Lesson was learned.

  1. Check the place before you even apply for. Even if you know it or were there before.
  2. Check one more time 🙂 because what you did not see at first, you will see second time.
  3. If you are not satisfied with the offer ask for a better one.
  4. Don’t go to a place you were not invited.

I beleive that everything has a reason. So, that day supposed to be like this and grateful for that we could learn from it.

While waiting we had several ideas what we should do different on our next market, which will be on the 5th Sept 2020, in Szimpla Kert , at the Szimpla Fashion Hungarian Designer Market where I was chosen among 25 Hungarian Designers.

Hope to see you there!
