sew fabulous

That's the mini album I did for Beth.
She is not only my friend, she is my family & she is sewing beautiful things.

Sometimes you need to see what you do, to realize how great it is.
I thought an album to collect what she is doing will be a good idea.

more snow

We are having tons of snow!
It looks gorceous!

This christmas we will be celebrating alone, because it's imposible to drive & my father in law and his wife can not take the risk of driving the long way.

my 1st, 1 page layout

Our lovely friend Manu has birthday 1 day before christmas. I don't really know if it's a bless or not, but I know we are blessed to have her as our friend.

Since she is one of my loyal blog viewer & it's always leaving beautiful comments, I knew she will be happy to have a "selfmade" present from me.

This layout will be hang as a picture.
The photos were made by my son while we had a delicious afternoon at her garden.

Dear Manu!
I hope you can realize how special you are for us,
even if everybody it's kind of christmas stressed,
we love you & love sharing your day with you & darling Jackie.

We are friends for 10 years now!

Because Christmas for me is summertime, 36°C, cold tasty food, & I've been described as the funny colorful scrapper our christmas decoration speaks for my image & is a summer brise.

Our Adventkranz :-)

This tiny houses for our tree, are made with My mind's eye colorful christmas (wich fits we me really good). The background paper is Mme as well (fine & dandy).

Sorry for the pictures, I can not get the bright color out of it!

Here in Cologne we have tons of snow & I love it!
It looks gorceous!!! Like powder sugar all over the world.

Tonight we are trying to get to the christmas market to see it in this special snowy mood.

bird houses

Last week I saw this little cutie houses by:
Gudruns papirblog  & I had to try it!!!

The first one I did... without reading the directions :-) That's the reason why the roof is not able to open :-) But in my second prototype it works.

I filled it with two little candles & a matchbox wrapped with the same pattern paper

mimi tag

Hi everybody!

This thousand of tutorials, christmas projects, workshops in the diferent blogs are getting me in a spiral of working power.
I love it !
I can wait to be ready with my work @ home to scrapbook christmas presents or favors :-)

Here are the pictures of the mini book I did for my lovely friend Sigrid.
She spreads positive energie with her smile & her point of view for life.
We are lucky to have her as a friend, she is even sharing her adorable mother with us.
My son says: that's my Mimi too. That's the name her grandchildren say to her. She is like a Grandma for him.

I'm not posting more fotos, because not everybody wants to be online
