One little Word – January

The January task was to look at the new word for the first time. I answered the “January Prompts” using Ali Edwards journaling cards. For the starting point, I have designed a double page. I’m currently not sure whether I will include these pages in my photo book 2022 or whether I will collect the pages. Maybe in a few years I will have a pure OLW book printed from them. The first page starts […]

One little Word 2022 – Focus

This is the third time I’ve participated in Ali Edward’s “One Little Word” workshop. This project is about choosing a word and this word is your constant companion for a year. You engage in different work tasks during the workshop and try to relate the tasks to the chosen word. Every month all participants get a new challenge. This involves answering questions about the chosen word, taking on a photography challenge or creating a collage, […]

Sew baby shoes yourself!

Good news! The new neighbor’s baby hatched a few days ago and I wanted to quickly finish our gift. After sewing a baby body with matching pants for the first time, I had the courage to try a pair of baby booties. The pattern for these booties are from Thimble Lamb Pattern and are available for purchase on Etsy under the name “Stay on Booties”. The shoes are actually quite easy to recreate with the […]

Birthday Cards – Part 3

In the third part of my card series I show you my fairy cards. All the cards are made from my rich paper stash that has built up over the last 5 years of creating my Project Life photo albums. The stickers used are certainly older than 3 years and if I remember correctly, the fairies were included in a mixed sticker set. So far, I’ve had trouble finding a use for these stickers. But […]

12 of 12 – January 2022

It’s hard to believe, but in the meantime the new year is already 12 days old! Like last year, I would like to participate in the photo project “12 of 12”. In this photo project, you capture the daily routine in 12 pictures and then publish the pictures on the blog. If you want to see more 12 of 12 posts, you can select that in my menu item of the same name. Lots of […]

Lion-Body with matching pants

In the coming weeks, 3 babies will be born in our circle of friends. To make the parents a little surprise, I got myself patterns for children’s clothing and sat down at the sewing machine on the weekend. It was my first time sewing clothes for children. So far I have only made clothes for my husband and me. Sewing the small pieces of fabric was a nice change. The colorful fabrics bring me great […]

Birthday Card – Part 2

I would like to present you one of the first cards that I made myself. The card is made of scrapbooking paper. At the top is a layer with watercolor paper glued, which I have printed with a large rubber stamp. The stamp with the text “Congratulations “was included in a set I bought at Action* some time ago. I created the blue background with watercolors. The shimmer is caused by the metallic pearlcolors from […]

Birthday Cards

At the beginning of the new year, I always think about the areas of my life where there is room for improvement. I don’t make traditional New Year’s resolutions. Rather, it is a “listening into myself”. This usually results in new projects that I can pursue in my free time, and that’s how these homemade cards came about. After sending homemade birthday cards to my loved ones last year – and the response was overwhelmingly […]

My festive dress

For a long time I have cherished the dream of working with lace. The holidays offer me the perfect opportunity to retreat to my “sewing cave” and spend time on the sewing machine. This time I made a simple black dress. I used the lace fabric for the sleeves and the top. The dress is made of black jersey fabric. Front and back are made of one layer of jersey on which I sewed another […]

I am back – in english

In the meantime, a few months have passed during which I have not published an article in English. I had doubts whether my blog is not only visited by friends, but also pleases foreign readers (from all over the world). Again and again I think about whether it is worthwhile to have a blog at all. All communication has been going through the pages of social media channels for a few years now. I find […]
