Long, long time no see! Yes this was a winter with mild temperatures, but almost everybody I know, including me, was weak and miserable. But the sun is shining and things will be better! I want it! So I decided to start with this post and get some inspiration by visiting other studios to carry on. Here is mine, more or less still the same, maybe a bit dusty.


I have been doing some things you know, things you can do lying on the sofa, like taking internet classes, making some little drawings, finishing my mini book, and I am in a swap for Letter Journaling. You know that kind of thing, where you make little journals, that fit into  a regular envelope and you send it around, so that 4 or 5 people can create in it. Supercool! I am in an international group and also in a German group. Real fun. I show you what I made so far.

I am quite happy how it turned out and I can´t wait for my copy to come back.

I finally finished my mini book, part of which you might have already seen. This was quite an interesting experience. As I was too weak and tired for a bigger project, it was a good thing having small pieces of art that can be finished quickly and leave you with the feeling having created something. It became a wild mix of found art (the underpaper that covered my desk, ripped into pieces), that sometimes revealed surprising beauty at a close sight, painting, collage, drawing and stamping with my wonderful Rubberdance stamps. I must say these stamps helped me out many times when I needed some marks, sentiments, just words, or a little creature or just an idea, when I needed one. This was my first mini book, but I started the next one, as it is so much fun and rewarding for me and even the people, who had it in their hands. This format (8,5×6 cm closed) is really something special.

Today is spring at it’s best, with bright sunshine, lots of colourful flowers and birds singing! It’s marvelous!

Have a nice time visiting all the other desks and enjoy spring (or autumn) wherever you are!

  1. Beautiful desk – not messy but USED! 🙂 Just the way I like my desk to be, too. I have enjoyed looking at your mini album pages before, and it is nice to see all of it here today. I love the „enter“ on the cover! I am glad if my stamps could help you feel a bit better and add interest to the pages that you created. Sounds like you are doing better now, enjoying the lovely season! ♥ Big hugs ♥

    • Thank you so much Bibi! Yes your stamps are always a great help for me, even if they are part of the background. They are unique and robust, which is also important.

    The Wanderlust classes have been / are fabulous. Well worth the very reasonable cost. You can join anytime. The videos are downloadable so you can keep them and there are pdfs to go with them. The guest teachers have been so interesting and inspiring.
    Thanks for dropping by the other day 🙂

  9. I love your paintings with the wonderful colours and their interesting text. Favourite here is the FAQ, very amusing.
    And your little book is terrific, it’s very small, I love little books. Thanks very much for the flip-through, that is clever how how you have shown it like that.

Thank you very much for visiting. You make my day, if you leave a comment!
