Happy New Year

I would like to thank you all for the wonderful support and lovely comments you have made throughout the year.


Time is like a flowing river, no water passes beneath your feet twice, much like the river, moments never pass you by again, so cherish every moment that life gives you and have a wonderful New Year!

New Year's Eve at the Beach

I'm leaving now, for a short trip to my favorite place at the Baltic Sea * Timmendorfer Strand*. A bit relaxing for a few days, having a great New Year's Eve Dinner and the biggest New Year's Eve Open Air Beach Party, i've ever seen. A German Radio Station is live ON AIR at the Beach from 9.00 pm and there are more than 10.0000 people coming every year.



The picture below is done at 6.00 pm ( last year)


This is, how it looks at 0.01 am


I wish you all great start into the New Year 2013

Meet my Gnoms

I'm a member of a German Forum, which is closing at the end of this month. I've tryed my best for a lot inspiration for the last Advent Calendar. These are the Gnoms i've made, after i've seen some pictures at the Holiday Crafts Magazine someone was showing on YouTube. The original Gnom was made from wood pieces. I used some polystyrene balls and because they are too *lightweight*, i used a plaster heart for feet.


  If i can get some of these little bells, i'll sew them on later, on top of the hat / cap





They all need a home, too (:o)
That's why i had a play with Tando Creative Mini House Trio, i bought at






There's not much room left on my window bench now (:o)


Again, we are waiting for snow now

Enjoy this wonderful season
