The ScrapUA online scrapbooking store welcomes you!
Before you go shopping, we'd like to tell you a little about our site. We opened at the beginning of 2011 - at a time when very few people in Ukraine heard about our hobby, and the assortment was placed on a dozen pages of the catalog.
At the beginning of our journey, few people knew that a postcard or an album with your own hands can be made from professional materials. Today we continue our business and are among the first in the country to acquaint buyers with new collections and instruments.
For a long time we were a sponsor of "Scraplifting" - a challenge blog, which probably not a single needlewoman could pass by. We managed to shoot two master classes for television and take part in several exhibitions “Formula of Needlework” and “HandmadeExpo”. We went to the Art Picnic of Slava Frolova as a sponsor. And about who we are - the owners of ScrapUA - you can find out on the page "About us".
Even such a magical world as scrapbooking, an online store can present in numbers. We got the following statistics:
Goods are ordered from manufacturers - this excludes intermediary surcharges. Unfortunately, our work is tied to the exchange rate, but we regularly adjust prices. When the rate decreases, you can notice how the price tags also change.
To get more for the same money, turn your attention to Ukrainian scrapbooking products. You can buy them much cheaper than American ones, because all calculations are in hryvnia.
You object to us that the cheapest materials are in joint purchases. And you will be right. The so-called joint ventures are a good way to save money. But, as always, there are "buts". You will have to wait for the order for a month or two, you will not always be able to receive money if you lose the parcel or return the scrapbooking materials to the seller. The store, on the other hand, operates in accordance with the law.
Choosing cucumbers for planting outdoors is not easy. There are varieties and hybrids, among them there are plants pollinated by bees and do not need pollination (parthenocarpics), with long and short lashes and even bush, with one stem or many-branched. Therefore, the choice of cucumbers today is a matter that requires a careful approach. You need to decide what is important for you - a super harvest or delicious cucumbers for your family with minimal hassle. The goal will depend on which cucumbers are best planted in each case.
Cucumbers are of two types - bee-pollinated and parthenocarpic. With the first, everything is clear already from their name - to obtain a harvest, pollinating insects must fly up to flowering plants and transfer pollen from male flowers to female ones. As a result, fruits with full-fledged seeds are formed, from which it turns out to grow the next generation of plants. Bee-pollinated cucumbers can be both varieties and hybrids. The seeds of bee-pollinated varieties carry all the properties of the mother plant, and they can be easily extracted from the fruits, saved on their own and sown then next year. The seeds of bee-pollinated hybrids are not suitable for obtaining their own "home" seeds - hybrids do not transfer properties to daughter seeds, i.e. the plants grown from them will differ from the mother bush, and, most likely, for the worse.
The situation is more interesting with parthenocarpic cucumbers. Many gardeners mistakenly call them "self-pollinated". This popular name is fundamentally wrong - parthenocarpics do not need any pollination at all, they are programmed to bear fruit without fertilization.
Parthenocarpic cucumbers bear fruit, but the seeds are either absent or underdeveloped. In any case, nothing will work out of them. An important thing follows from this - patenocarpics do not propagate by seeds in principle, all cucumbers of this type are hybrids, the result of the successful work of breeders. There are no parthenocarpic cucumber varieties.
As a result, the following options are available for growing (in the open field - including):
1) Bee-pollinated cucumber varieties 2) Bee-pollinated hybrids 3) Parthenocarpic hybrids
Among them, we will choose further what we need.
When choosing cucumbers, specialists should pay attention to varieties and hybrids of domestic selection, they are bred taking into account our conditions and have complex disease resistance. Foreign samples with us do not always meet expectations, sometimes they turn out to be later than stated. When buying cucumber seeds for growing in the open field (especially for varieties), it is important to consider which region of the country they are intended for. Southern varieties are not very suitable for the Non-Black Earth Region, but cucumbers for colder regions - the North-West, the Urals, Siberia - will delight with the harvest even in cold and rainy summers.
In terms of ripening, cucumbers are divided into early ones, in which 40-50 days pass from the emergence of mass shoots to fruiting, mid-ripening, ready in 51-60 days, and late, which need more than 60 days. In the middle lane, late varieties for open ground are not suitable, you need to choose early and mid-season cucumbers, in the Urals, Siberia and the Far East, you should limit yourself only to early ones.

But the shower curtain is easy. If the time has come to update the "interior" of the bathroom, but the hand does not rise to throw out the still good curtain, then it is not necessary.
It will still come in handy in the house and in the country. And at first glance you wouldn't think how useful a thing is!
The shower curtain should be changed at least once every few months. A humid bathroom environment is not the best storage environment. But this does not mean at all that the vinyl or nylon curtain will not be useful for something else and should go to the landfill. Due to the density and moisture resistance of the material, as well as ease of washing, the shower curtain can be used for other useful purposes. For example:
Shower curtain during renovation.
Have you decided to paint the walls or re-glue the wallpaper? Great idea. But so that you don't have to chase the parquet flooring, be sure to cover the floors. A vinyl curtain is perfect for this purpose: a large coverage area and easy to clean.
A shower curtain as a decoration for a children's party.
Matinees do happen, so why not do it professionally? For example, to make young talents feel like real artists. And what theater is without a curtain? Even if made of a shower curtain.
Covers for clothes from shower curtains.
With such covers, the moth will definitely not get to its favorite sweater, and a swimsuit and swimming trunks can be thrown into a backpack right after the beach and not be afraid of wet spots.
