Restarting my weekly journal

I have decided to restart my weekly Journal with a different Approach: find something positive each day and write it down. The Little gifts of the week that are passing by so often unattended.

I am sorry that I have not been much around lately, but currently the Access to my Computer is quite limited (sharing it with my daughter). And lately - when I am "allowed" to use it I am asleep on the Couch.

ALPHA DICTIONARY CHALLENGE - LETTER Q as in quantity and some running journal pages

Like anybody else participating at the letter Q challange


 I was going through my little dictionary. It was not an easy one, but when I discovered this Quote I thought it would fit perfectly

By the way, the glass was made with my Sizzix die  bell jar, some packing (that might have even gone with that one) and alcohol inks.
participating as well at:
Last Weekend I was in Bad Aibling, spending a complete Weekend with my crafty friends from Munich. And having seen the "running Journal" on YouTube we really had to give it a try (actually 3, but one was given away as a present).
You don´t know what that is? Each participant has 3-5 minutes for a single page, and then the next Person brings in her ideas to that page...in our case we were mostly 8-9 persons. So here´s what we did - art by 9 one a single page
Sounds like fun? It was !!!!

So here we go

I really do hope you all come and play along with us.

Hugs, S

Guest designer at de Stempelwinkel: Fred´s Bar

This is my last project for this month as de Stempelwinkel guest designer. The base for the bar was recycled packing.

Adding lots of tissue paper and black acrylic colours ......


Hope you have enjoyed my Halloween work for de Stempelwinkel

Montag, 28. Oktober 2013


I needed a really happy page with all the unhappy stuff going on in my life right now, so I made some houses (love to do that) and used some left-over scrap from a children book. I guess it would be fun to live in that neighbourhood.

have a great week, xx

sometimes life is a rollercoaster....

Guest designer at de Stempelwinkel: when monsters travel

Once again inspired by artfully musing I made a ballon, with a lot of clear embossing and inking the paper afterwards black.

Details on "how-to" you can find here:

http://artfullymusing.blogspot.de/2013/07/steampunk-spells-carnival-curiosities.html with a link to YouTube to watch how it is made.

in Detail as the balloon is bigger than really fits well on a photo

Guest designer at de Stempelwinkel: Poison bottle

Of course a bottle of poison should not be missing as a Halloween deco and so I altered an empty martini bottle in a whitchy poisonous bottle

Who knows what happens when you drink out of it :)
