ABOUT ME
 



Hello! My name is Maja from beautiful Hungary in the European Union.  I grew up in Eger, a historical place with an old castle, church towers, thermal bath and world famous wines.  I attended English schools and lived in the USA, that is why I am very much influenced by the British and the American culture. 

I have a degree and title in law and politics.  I am engaged in legal practice as a lawyer and  have a vein and interest for arts and crafts.    
 
You can follow me my artwork, cross stitch designs on the following platforms:  https://linktr.ee/thesnowflowerdiaries  
 
 
I also have a degree in photography and have a photography business along my cross stitching path.  If you would like to see my portfolio, my webpage is here: PHOTOGRAPHER PORTFOLIO 

I am a happy and proud mama of three children, but I keep my private life very private. I also have a fur baby, Gorbi, a mixed breed rescue dog.    I enjoy gardening and grow a cut flower garden and a tiny English style cottage garden around my house, you can find me among the flowers, birds and bees!:-) 


ABOUT THE BLOG


I have been sewing and crafting from childhood, I love everything handmade.   My mother is a very creative and talented artist with a degree in fine arts.  My father is a math professor, also a highly creative person and handyman.   

In 2011 I was pregnant with our twins, when I discovered cross stitching - painting with needle and thread.  Stitching soon became a beloved addiction and I had already spent a fortune on stash as we stitchers all do.   

This blog is dedicated to the journey in the needlework industry.   I have started my needlework business with my - now ex - husband, I designed, he ran the business, but unfortunately our roads have departed and from 2022 I have to game up and learn to run it on my own, and I am very very excited to do so.  I think it was time! 

The blog opened in March 8th, 2013.  


WHY SNOWFLOWER? 

I love nature, the forests, the sea, the mountains, the trees, and all kinds of tiny, white flowers with decent, fresh scent.  I wore them in my hair as a bride, because they represent me so well. I am a winter girl and one of my favourite colour is white.  I liked the legend of the snowdrops: when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, Eve was about to give up hope in the long, freezing winter when an angel came, and the snowflakes turned into snowdrops as the first sign of spring...
The English name, snowdrop refers jewelry, white earings, that I found beautiful, but I liked the fine, soft melody of the "mirror translation" of our simple Hungarian word better and that is: snowflower.
