Let´s relax a little!!

Do you know that: when there´s so much daily routine, there´s sometimes only a pale face looking from the mirror back to you - but after summer vacation or a relaxing afternoon at the pool - you´re a shining star again!

My swimming pool is only small and tiny - only 3,5m in diameter - but I can´t look away from this view on hot summer days ... cooling down in it is such a delight!

So, come on and let´s relax a little!!

Published! / 2

I got my voucher copy of Stamp It! Cards: Volume 8 two weeks ago and opened page 63 first :-)

Here´s the reason, why....

... - my card qualified for this special issue, which made me VERY happy, because otherwise I wouldn´t had the chance to get my hands on this one! (due to shipping costs)

You can get it here, if you want to:

This time I share "my" page with Lynn Mangan

It´s so much fun to have a card published!

And I felt so flattered that Cath Edvalson, Trends Editor for Paper Crafts Magazine, mentioned the card on her “Moxie Fab World” blog

Celebrate with me and make yourself a special day!

I´m in the mood for a champagne miniature (one of these small bottles – just enough for 1 glass) :-)

It´s just nice to party even small events, isn´t it?!

Until next time! Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you, Stacey!

A dear crafting buddy made my day today: STACEY

I´m so sorry, that I can´t send you my "chocolate kisses" IRL - I´m afraid food won´t pass the custom´s office ...

But I dedicate these pics to you! *mwah*

Apricots everywhere!

Hi there!

For those of you who wondered why I was so quiet in the last few weeks: I was busy doing LOTS of things - one of them was processing apricots.

Our tree (earlier this year) ...

... had "tons" of apricots this year:

I had to give away lots of them - too much for 2 people!

I stewed most of them to "Marillenröster" (more liquid than jam, with bigger pieces of fruit and less sugar than jam)

I also gave away some jars to my family in Styria - they do have lots of apple and cherry trees there, but no apricots - it´s not the right climate and soil there.

As you all know we crafters do NOT give away anything without prinking it up!

So even time was tight, I made small tags for some jars...

PHEW! Harvest is over now and I´m sooo happy about that!

Thanks for remembering me :-) and visiting me today!

Have a great day!
