snow and tea



Two little illos I made for the kids magazine SPICK. I show them because I´m waiting for the snow... and I love drinking a hot cup of tea after spending the whole day outside.

Another one octopus


I love drawing/sewing animals with bathing-cap. On the right you can see a very old picture of me and my sister Eva with our Monchichis in swim-outfit.

Dezember


Nürnberg is making preparations
for Christkindlesmarkt. The whole city is smelling of Bratwurst und Lebkuchen.

Christmas under the sea


So that´s it. I´m having enough cards for Christmas 2006. In the next week I will sew some stars and angels for friends... but for me Christmas business is over.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and I wish you´ll have a great Advent season.

Build your own Angel



That´s me in 1978 starring at three paper angels. Yesterday I created my own one...

Kleine Weihnachtsmitbringsel


Last weekend I visited a Handicarft Fair and discovered these colourful Christmas decorations.
The matches are little presents for family and friends to light candles in the dark wintertime.
And this lovely Christmas Gift Tag is from Natascha. Thank you!

Thanksgiving


Wir in Deutschland feiern kein Thanksgiving. All meine Kenntnisse über dieses Fest erhielt ich durch Filme, Serien wie Frasier und Friends oder Comics wie den Peanuts. Ich liebe diese Geschichten, in denen ein riesiger Vogel eine gewichtige Nebenrolle spielt und ich liebe diese Illu: armer kleiner Woodstock, der fassungslos vor einem toten Truthahn steht.

I love the Peanuts and I love this illo: poor Woodstock standing in front of a dead turkey.
Thank you Mr. Schulz!

Weihnachtsschmuck 2

Weihnachtsschmuck


I can´t knit or crochet but this weekend I decided to try some needlework. My technique isn´t perfect... well I don´t care it was a lot of fun. I won´t have a Christmastree that´s why I put them on my beloved cactuses like Snoopy´s brother Spike did.

First snow-flakes


We had such a beautiful warm october and today it´s so cold and it started to snow... perfect weather for making christmas cards. This picture was taken in my kitchen with a view to the backyard.

Halloween


Soon it will be Halloween. Huuhuu... I don´t even know about the exact date. I´m german and in Germany there is no Halloween-tradition. Today you can buy some Halloween candies (left). I bought them for the children of my kids-painting-class. They are crazy about them. But eating it doesn´t make me feel halloween-y.
Whatever I saw some very funny and spooky illos, e.g. on Jannie´s and Tricia´s Blogs and there is a Halloween contest Black&Orange... so watch it!
By the way is it on or at a Blog?

Weihnachtshund


I am very busy these days, but in the following week I will start creating new christmas cards.
Some weeks ago I enroled for an English course. Tomorrow I will have my third lesson. It is a lot of fun and I hope my English skills will be improved soon.
