From the early years of creativity, Kristina began her basic project of Simple Magic Things. The main idea of this project: beauty surrounds the person in every ordinary thing (snow outside the window, steam over a cup of hot tea, autumn leaf, …). The more a list of magical things, the happier a person is. Simple magical things are designed to help notice the grains of beauty in everyday life.
