About me

Previous DT membership, Country View Challenges, from 2015 September - 2023 May.

Hello there,

Welcome here on my blog, and first of all, thank you that you want to know me.

Briefly about me: My name is Monika Gulyas, I'm Hungarian but I've been living in Luxembourg since 2004. I have a daughter (Eszter), a husband (Imre) and a bichon bolognese (Rozi).

About my blog: In elementary school I had a nickname, Gui which comes from my family name, Gulyás. The word, Gui has a wonderful meaning in French: mistletoe. So I decided to use this name on my English blog. This is why you are here on Mistletoe Home.

About me and my blog (longer version): Although I obtained a university degree of political science, I've always been a creative person. I've always liked to decorate and to make home decorating ornaments. Here, in Luxembourg - thanks for my lovely husband - I can live for my hobbies.

I can say I'm quite an adventurous and curious person who wants to try many creative techniques and who doesn't want to make just one thing. 

This is why, on my blog you can find all sorts of things, tutorials and inspiring ideas. I make cards mostly with Sizzix cutouts and stamps, I make felt ornaments, salt dough ornaments, I also make paper mache (papier mâché) figurines, decoupage (mainly from paper napkin cutouts) and other home decorations.

But I still learn and I still try to improve myself to be better and better.

From 1999 to 2004 I worked in the Archives of the Hungarian Radio, as an archivist I know how important to use many labels to find a previous work. So I hope my labels are useful for you.

Currently, I'm a designer team member of the blogs: the Country View Challenges and the Country View Crafts.

Some silly things about me: I love Christmas, but otherwise all holidays, I like polka dot patterns, I collect vintage Christmas cards, I run and I follow the paleolithic diet. 

Thank you for visiting me and please forgive me for my not too perfect English!

It's me

My two daughters, Eszter and Rozi :-)

Mon bio courte en français
(my short bio in French)

Je m’appelle Monika Gulyás, je suis une hongroise qui habite  au Luxembourg depuis 2004. Je suis une artisane. Je fais partie d’une DT (designer team) des blog Country View Challenges et Country View Crafts.

Je crée beaucoup de choses différents: cartes de voeux, toiles mixed media, boite décorée, decorations pour les fêtes et parties. Mon style est assez éclectique parce que cela dépend de la personne pour qui je crée. J’aime créer pour les enfants mais j’adore le shabby chic et le vintage. 

Merci pour me visiter ici, sur mon blog, Mistletoe Home.
