Altered Book

 Hello my dear friends,
I just started an altered book and would like to share my first page with you. This is something I haven't done in ages but it was so much fun. The heart was cut out from a mica sheet and the words are in between the layers. The window was cut out of a copper sheet and soldered.

May I also show off my first soldered crown:) 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and as always, thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave me a comment.

Hugs and love,

Welcome Spring

Hello my dear friends,

a short warm weather spill inspired me to go into my neglected studio and with the birds singing outside I created this mail art. Otherwise my focus was to convert the new garden, into a flower paradise. It is not finished yet but I made a major step in that direction.

Spring finally arrived - isn't the Magnolia tree gorgeous?
Have a Happy Easter, dear friends.

Hugs and love,

Hello my dear friends,
you might have wondered what took me so long to publish my first post in 2017.
After a good start into the new year we learned that we had a burglary into our new home in Germany.Let me just tell you that this is an experience nobody needs.
It took me a while to recover. Today I would like to share my soldered harts with you, which I created at the end of December. 
The inspiration for the hearts came from an online class I took from Terri Brush.
She is a wonderful teacher and I can highly recommend any of her classes.

At the moment I'm trying my best to get back to normal. I hope 2017 started good for you.
Wishing you all a wonderful week and as always, thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs and love,

Merry Christmas

Hello my dear friends,

first of all thank you so much for all the lovely comments and the warm welcome back on my latest post. That really touched my heart:) I took my time and visited your blogs, left comments but sadly, most of you won't know, as the old problem still exist, you won't receive an email informing you that I left  a comment. That said, I would like to share my progress with the new studio.
Did I tell you it is small?  I'm trying to get the most out of it and taking my time. Love how it is coming along and it is really nice to work in.
Recently I  finished this card.

To my delight I received already  first packages from my dear friends which I would like to share with you. 

The first package to arrive, was from dear Julia @ Vintage With Laces 
She created this truly beautiful star for the new studio for me and 

the most gorgeous fabric Christmas tree. Did you notice the tiny gifts under the tree? So adorable.

It is just perfect for  my ladder, now decorated for Christmas. Thank you so very much, dear Julia.

Dear Dorthe @ Den Lille Lade send me the most beautiful Winter angel. 

Dressed up so very beautiful with her fur hat and lace dress.

Isn't she absolutely gorgeous? Thank you so very much, dear Dorthe.

Finally I would like to share this chandelier charm which I created almost a year ago.

Since this will be my last post for the year, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all the support and friendship you have given me over the years and I'm looking forward to another fabulous year of blogging with you.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and hope dear Santa, will bring everything you wished for.

Stay warm and safe in 2017.

Hugs and love,

Missed you all

Hello my dear friends,
so much has happened over the last couple of months, that I don't know where to begin.
To make a long story short, after some minor surgeries during spring and summer, we also started to look for a new home. The project was very time consuming. Finally we found a new home and we put our old house on the market. You can imagine what kind of work is involved. The move took place by the end of September and the sale of the old one in October. We were without internet connection for a couple of weeks. After painting and refurbishing our house in finally feels like home. My new studio is still in  construction mode and a number of cartons still need to be unpacked

Nevertheless, with Christmas approaching very fast, I managed to create two Christmas cards.
Even so, not all of my supplies are unpacked.

                                                This is a peek into my new studio.

A little Christmas decoration in the garden.
I missed you all and it feels nice to be back.
Have a wonderful weekend and as always thank you so much for stopping by.
