art journal - moonlight


moonlight enlightening and endarkening,
a glowing tree,
two rabbits enjoying their time together.

boy's summer


Slowly, I am working my way through this huge pile of fabrics which are set aside for my boys summer wardrobe. Luckily, it is mostly cold and rainy, so I can take my time. For starters, these shorts and sleeveless shirts plus some summer PJs got finished.

The grey and green combi is for J, who is more into subdued colors (and dinosaurs) when it comes to clothes. He was happy as pie and sang "I'm a monzta with rabbitz" the whole morning. Little M on the other hand needs strong colors. Orange and red were perfect for him and if he could, he would wear them every single day.

art journaling

flower 1 

This year, I gave myself permission to play. Not just creating for a project in mind. It is all about experimenting, enjoying the process and getting some exercise.

Unfortunetaly - or luckily, depending on the occassion - there are so many wonderful paints, stamps, papers and oh so funny stuff available. Thus, I have to limit myself to just the material on hand or my home would soon be better equipped than any craft store. This limitation also helps to get to know my own materials and techniques to use them, which is key.

Sometimes those pages turn out quite unexpected, not having my usual style as I try to get out of my nice little comfort zone. This page here started with some leftover acrylic paint smudged on a page and ended pretty flowery.


  • acrylic paint
  • water colors
  • ink "Leipziger Schwarz"
  • paper scraps
  • stamps, StazOn schwarz, some noname-ink in turquoise
  • Sharpie pen

little trip to nature

Last week we had a little walk and found some freshly hatched coots. They boys had lots of fun watching them swimmin and getting fed.
