Brochure design for "The Appoloniatisses" co-operative by Irene P.

It was my pleasure and honor to design a brochure for the "First Agrotouristic
 co-operative of the women of Apollona village in the Dodecanese  "The Appoloniatisses"
Anybody visiting Rhodos Greece - a beautiful sun filled island in the Dodecanese- should absolutely try their products! Here's how it started:

In June 2005, a group of dynamic women from Apollona, a mountainous village on the island
of Rhodes, created the first Agrotouristic co-op on the Dodecanese region.

The women of Apollona, utilizing the products of their village and working in a modern,
traditional workshop, revive traditional recipes which have been handed down from generation
to generation to create products of high qualityusing pure raw materials produced locally
without preservatives and dyes.

The co-op's goal is to enhance the local economy and to spread and promote the traditional regional products.


Melekouni (a traditional pasteli sweet
      made of sesame and honey)
2.   Olive oil,  olives, honey, suma, dried beans 
      (local products of Apollona).
3.    Jams and marmalades
4. Orange, tangerine and lemon liquor with suma
      (a strong alcoholic drink made using grapes).
5.    Traditional bakery products
6. Traditional bread
7.    Fried pastry and macaroon sweets.
8. Trachanas (a thick grain and yogurt based soup) and
      Pligouri (bulgur wheat, a pre-cooked, hydro thermally,
       pretreated wheat)
9. Herbs (Oregano, mint, sage and bay leaf )

Easter is in the air! Easter crafts, gift ideas

I thought I'd share some inspiration with you. Here are some of the craft designs I made for the upcoming Easter holidays. We sometimes have litttle gifts to give our loved ones but no idea how to package or present them. This little cardboard house could be great to hold any gift-maybe even something treasured like an engagement ring! Or better yet, a cloissonne Easter egg! One of my favorites. I will be posting some soon. I bought them from a great store downtown and I think they make wonderful and afordable presents. I haven't listed this in my etsy shop yet but whoever is interested can contact me
The egg ornament is made of Fimo air drying clay. I formed the designs by pressing on it different kinds of toy parts that my boys play with and, after it dryed completely, I drew on it with aqualux porelain finish liquid colors. Leave some comments! I'd love to hear your opinion!
