Notebook workshop

Yesterday, we had the chance to organize a nice notebook workshop! We were 8 participants with a lot of creativity, and we can see it in the results. During two hours we cut, sewn, sticked, … and each participant had the chance to leave with a original and unique notebook. But it’s not finish, next time, we will learn the technique of calligraphie, and everybody will write in it. I let you discover the result with these pictures.

You were not in the notebook workshop, but you want to learn the technique?

Don’t worry, I will explain you how to create yours with this tutorial :

For the material, you need :

white papers (around 6 pcs), a cardboard paper for the cover,  120 cm of string and a big needle.

– Cut the papers and the cardboard in two. Then with a pen, draw on one of the papers, 7 holes at 1.5 cm from the edge. The holes should be spaced from 3 cm.

Then create the holes with the needle through all the papers.

Now you can decorate your notebook as you want.


Do you want to have a speech with someone in English?


Cheers guys how are you? Don’t believe in someone who might tell you English is tight language, not true. It is simple and easier if you have courage to develop it on your own. As it is used to be on headline , I picked up ” tricky ” word to say instead ” to talk, to speak ” which means English goes to its own way sometimes differently than other languages.

It is required to working a picky workshop and lessons with help of someone or sometimes by yourself practising every day and taking quizes up.  Don’t  get bored, make it more fun.. The example is to listen English songs, or find some American in the city by chance 🙂

I have repeating Interactive English learning activity which will be held today from 17.00 in Asociatia Colors, Mircea Cel Batran Nr. 4 , it won’t take much time at evening, however what you’ll learn is worth to come over us 🙂  We’ll be friends with Funny American Author John Pearson who has written the book called Learn me good. We ‘d take fun quizes too. Let’s build  up together! ( We got dictionary 😛 )  I wait for you all, I’ll be there! 485042_565274576823629_1856168730_n

March activities with the elderly


The beginning of March arrived with two interesting activities for and with Colors‘ seniors.

A few days before the 1st of March, we met with them in Mansarda Baiulescu in order to create self made “Martisoare” for friends or family. While I started to get desperate about the sticking, sewing and cutting after felt 5 minutes, our elderly didn’t even need a full instruction for creating a Martisoara and could do it all by themselves.

In the end of the activity, all of us made a (more or less…) beautiful Martisoara which is probably now in the hands of lucky friends.

Yesterday, the volunteers and elderly were in the mood for playing. Bingo, chess, Dixit and a game including a wood tower became part of Tuesday morning.

However, this was only the warm up for the party on Friday for “Ziua femeii” which is going to start at 4 pm in Colors’ office, Mircea cel Batran no 4 – we are curious to see what the elderly planned for this evening!2 3

Enjoy with Hippo games for kids and teenagers

Posted by on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 · Leave a Comment 

Hippo was the idea in which we can able   teach and play some non-formal games with kids and teeangers, to be more spesific, aged between 2-18 included in door and outdoor games. In last summer, Volunteers of As Colors as whole were in Tractorul Park. We played outdoor games which make children excited and fun.  We wished that we can do it again although winter condition came back strongly.  So we found a way.. Amusements never ending for young generation. We created a serii of week including Hippo indoor activities that contain Board games, Puzzles, Creative workshops, Painting on paper or on wall, handmade stuff, Origami, Music games, Instruments, unsatisfied adrenalins and gifts for lovely kids. Some weeks ago, a group of children visited us to play games . They were amazing, so talented, clever and open-eyed.  We had fun too as well as they had fun with us. They created, they became happier and their parents as well. 382327_556527744364979_871766663_n

enjoy making friendship bracelets

Posted by on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 · Leave a Comment 

one of our last workshops was the friendship-bracelet-workshop. my collegues and me tought around 15 people how to create bracelets from different colorful wool. the technic has its origins in southamerica and is very easy. you need to learn only one type of knot. you will repeat it again and again to create different patterns. we explained two different patterns which are less complicated for beginners. for some people it was really easy. they already knew the technic and were very fast and creative. others tried this for the first time, but we didn’t even need to help everybody seperatly because the participants were in a good mood, talkative and helped each other as well. It was a nice atmosphere and in the end people were happy about their results. now they can give the bracelet as a present to their friends…

Posted by on Friday, March 1, 2013 · 1 Comment 

Tomorrow is the 1rst march and for the occasion, I will show you how to make a friendship bracelet, red and white, perfect to give as a present.


– First, cut 8 strings of two different colors (around 1 meter).



– Knot the strings and attach them with a safety pin to something (your jean, a pillow, …).



– Take two strings and wrap around the others. Then take two strings of the other color and do the same.




– When the bracelet is long enough, end it with a knot.




Enjoy your new bracelet…

Enjoyable and creative moments with kids in Directia Social Service

Posted by on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 · Leave a Comment 


Since   the beginning of January, I started to go to ” Day Care Center for Children” of Directia de Servicii Sociale Brasov.  It was almost one month ago when I met lovely children from there and their teacher Lily.. from my observations, She is nice, caring person of all her kids under her responsibility . First time, I was confused when I hugged all kids put smiles on their face, they’re full of life, energy and they do every thing with wistfulness in that Social service.  We go always  from the behind of school and trying to be on time.

In January, We went there  with other volunteers Oggy, Anna,Carmen and me.   The Idea was to play creative and non-formal games  with children ages ranked as ” 7-8-9-10-11-12……”  We went there in the morning and gathered all children in one big room and basically we started by playing ” Energizers” with them.  Energizers were supposed to be like catching fingers,  throwing balls and introductions and games were supposed to   played  such as Magician-tiger..,  also I made suprise teaching to children  ” Turkish words” They learnt so good, We became fastly friend with them.  Eventually, we hugged them and landed a kiss on their chick. It was lovely day….

After one month,  once again My collegues  Mirelle, Jennifer and Mahilla  , we went to same social center  and made ” Martisoare  ” with kids teaching them methods and how to do about, and then in rest of time We gave them cards with soil and seeds which we made for Photo exhibition of National parks of Romania. One of boys already opened the soil and feeded his plants immediately 🙂    Children had fun so much and I’m pretty sure they learnt something from this workshop on which they will repeat in future by themselves.


Thank you Lily for hosting us and giving us chance to work with you, I hope we will go there again to make children suprise up again.

Have a nice week

Journey on the Romania map!

Posted by on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 · Leave a Comment 

Salut, ce faci?

Have you ever searched of richness and beauties and interesting cities of Romanian on its map? If you did not try, better start, you will meet a lot suprises on the road! 🙂  Romania is located in the middle Europe and its position important. Here’s only country around Balkans where you can find  and see and observe every natural beauty at the same time and rich culture that changes from region to region.

To mark point you wanna go makes distance shorter and more visible for you.. then let’s mark together I believe it will be useful for you to know what is to travel in this beautiful country:)

The city in which we live right  now probably the best city in all country., Everyone accept it as the fact. However there are places to be seen as well. I make points considering you saw all brasov surroundings 🙂

If you go to Ramicu Valcea, You can visit” Cozia National Park and Buila vanturarita.. such beautiful..Boromir bread and cozonac fabrics in Valcea is very famous, don’t neglect to pass through Coloniel nuci :))  If you wanna see ” Petrol”, facilities, not so many beauties but if you’re interested in ” industry” you must see ” Ploiesti” , could be boring city but you gonna get used to it.  Let’s talk about ” Fagaras” … this place is amazing located between Brasov and Sibiu. It has Transfagarasan, Cetatea Fagarasului and the Balea Lake , worth to go there ( there is also waterfall there )

If you ‘re curious about a great mountain rows, you supposed to go to Rosia Montana that is locaed 77 km from Alba Iuila. You can pass through Sighisoara ( where every year in july summer medieval festivals happening regularly)  and pass by also Medias!! ohhh, stai un pic, Medias is great place .. in spring and summer, it has great green landscapes looks like heaven when we looked over from top point.  You can visit there ” Pestera Medias” ( Medias caves) City Alba I. is also worth to visit … people says it is like dream city.. castles have been settled over clouds.. There are important castles ( castele ) there  and they opened its door for you.


If you go to way for West of Brasov, you can go to” Volcanii” that is part of Buzau. This place is good to see enermous volcana massives and beauty even in winter time can be visited with friend group. Buzau is not special city  but around of it very special. If you got time to go, make a good plan 😉   if you wanna see a lovely national park , you must go to Braila and  Macin that is  located near Galati . That area is incredible… a lot of objective to see..time won’t be enough.. Of course Don’t forget to take a glance to ” Danube delta” you will loose yourself in his deep beauty,,, when storks and ducks and sea animals got to swim on surface of delta… and bushes.. There could be alligator 😉


See ” Sibiu” that was European Capital of culture in Romania in 2007, it is beautiful city and highway and connections ways are so professional. City design is interesting.. Come’n let’s discover down to Romania. we go to Turnu-severin to see ” Baile Herculane” where you find famous hercules baths and termal waters…. all sessions working.. when you drink something , at other hand , enjoy hot water , but don’t hesitate to visit National park ” Domogled- Valea cernei ” 😉

In Resita city, the bridge that pass through city is remarkable, not the best one but city design will make you confused there, also people are so warm-hearted . By the way, Resita is only some Km away from Serbian border. In exit of City, you will see Serbian city names as well, who knows 😉  By the way If you go to Resita and Baile herculane, you must eat watermelon and cheese and salad thats all ( i mean in summer) cuz there’s so hot in general.  Timisoara without questioning one of best city in Romania. It is enough big.. always recomended to go there and stay couple of days and see how trade potentional high and city is old.. great bridges and flowin rivers  its pluses. ..

if you go to near Hateg and Hunedoara zone, don’t hesitate to see and visit ” Retezat” National park, I bet is one of most special in the westeast of Romania…. Retezat is neighboorhood national park to Domogled valea cernei, don’t forget 🙂  Nearby Petroseni which is near by Targi Jiu, there is another famous national park called “Defileul Jiului” for sure you must go there, a lot of species.. different animals.. natural protected area…  If you ask me what’s going on on north of Romania, I can tell many objectives… starting from Baia mare.. firiza lake.. and Valea neagra must be visited… amazing lake.. and silent nature . If you want to be closer to Ukraine.. then you go to Sighetul Marmetii… where you find famous museum Victims of Communism.. haaaa , i was about to forget.. There is biggest Minereology  Museum in Baia mare and entrance is very cheap.. alot  of worthy stones there.. and On the tip of border ” Cimitrul vesel” ( happy coffins and graveyeards) will be waiting for  you… funny stories on coffins and grave stones.. teasings and jokes.. 😉

If you go to sighetu.. why don’t u go to Vatra dornei through Borsa? there’s awesome , simply the best.. also famous with termal water facilities and city’s design interesting River flowing all through and trade and commercial is rich. People are more conservative and may be speaking faster than Transilvnia 😉  See Suceava.. may be most attentioned City in Moldovian part of Romania… Cetatea… a lot of Monasterie.. ( it is called ” City of Monasteries” ) such as Voroneti.. dragomirna.. Roman is not special city but you will pass from there when you go Iasi 😉  I though that You have viisted Cluj many times, thats why I did not mention it 😛 it is probably one of best city in Romania as well.  People calls there ” INternational Student and fun city with a lot opportunity” .  As far as I remember, There was ” salt cave” in near Targu Mures.. you can go there and have some bath too if you got health problems .. Piatra neamt is good place to make skii and snowboarding.. and shape of Neamts mountain looks like a bit ” Poiana Brasov” In summer time, City does not pull much tourists.. but in winter very social city . Between Piatra Neamt and Bicaz , you will see ” Ceahlau National park”.. it is gorgeous there, please visit 🙂  and feel the calmness of lake ” Izvorul muntelui” . In the zone of Bistritia Nasaud, find ” Rodnei Mountain” and prepare for a good climb!

I wish you great and long journey, enjoy it….
