Just one little Fri-die

I have this pile of gatefold cards I bought a year ago at a craft fair, with a fantastic idea of what to do with them, but obviously once I got home, I couldn't remember why I bought them! To make matters worse, they are shiny card stock, so not possible to do any blending or … Continue reading Just one little Fri-die

Stencil Madness

Stencils are one of my favourite products to use as they are so versatile. They can be used as embossing folders, stamps, die cuts and just stencils! In this post I even created my own stencil from a cut file, as I wanted to join in the Stencil challenge over at Winnie & Walter's 3rd birthday bash … Continue reading Stencil Madness

I, like, totally love you

When I saw this sentiment I thought immediately of my teenage daughter. Born to a Singaporean mother (me) and Spanish dad (my dear patient hubby), raised in France and now living in Germany, she somehow managed to speak and behave like an American teenager! Like what the...!!! She does attend an International school here, but her … Continue reading I, like, totally love you

New Year’s Resolution

Its been awhile since I've made New Year's resolutions. I think its because I either forgot what they were to begin with, probably the day after the New Year's Eve party..., or because I didn't tell enough people what I was planning to do so I would be shamed into seeing it through! Well this year, I'm … Continue reading New Year’s Resolution

Celebrate

Today is St Nikolaus in Germany. The kids leave their shoes out so that St Nikolaus can leave them a little gift of normally oranges, chocolates and peanuts! In our children's school, the PTA helps St Nikolaus distributes these gifts the evening before. So last night I felt like a little German Elf distributing 200 little … Continue reading Celebrate

Its one of my favourite books and I wish I had discovered it … Continue reading Book Marks

To Have and to Hold

When it was certain that we were moving here from France, three years ago, I started gathering info on Ulm, the little city in the South of Germany where we would be moving to. During my on-line research, I met some wonderful people who spent time giving me information on the city, places to live … Continue reading To Have and to Hold
