Oh, look!

My profile looks a bit strange right now and I didn`t figure out how to fix it, yet.

If you can`t see my ratings, groups and current swaps, just scroll down to the bottom of this page. Somehow those points managed to hide down there!

About Me

Hi! I am 35 and a mom of a 2 years old boy - the joy of my life. Me and my wonderful husband have a cute little house in a small village in southern germany. Here we live with our silly cat Emmy. We adopted her from an animal shelter when she was one year old. She was terrified about little children when she moved in. But our son is so in love with her, he cozened her with treats - her weakness! No she is very relaxed when he is around her - she even searches for him when she is hungry. He is the guy with the mouth-watering food.

Our neighborhood is very nice. In summer we meet with our neighbours and make great BBQs. And it is absolutely normal that there are more kids in your garden, than you have together with your husband.

I like my small garden and I love to make trips with my family!

I am a bit nerdy. My husband, at least, says that. I love playing video games (RPGs & Adventures) but I have no time for that anymore since I have a kid. And I like everything video game related.

Luckily my babyboy likes crafting as much as I do. He creates so cute washi-tape-cards. :D And he is using my cuttlebug like a pro!

Favorite Crafts

For years sewing was my favorite! But since I am a mom I have nearly no time - and nerves - for it. So I started with paper crafts and I LOVE it! I make mini albums for my whole family. It is something that I can do for just five minutes after breakfast or for two houres in the middle of the night. :)

But I try to do a lot of different DIY projects. I am a real self-made-woman.

In 2016 I discovered PocketLetters and had a lot of fun whith it. But since you have to pay a fee on the official PL-website, I am not a part of the community anymore.


Besides familytime I love my 4 Cs:

Cats - Crafting - Coffee - Cupcakes


On our weddingday my hubby gave me a necklace that shows my favorites soooo well: A Hello Kitty full of crystals, in a pink cupcake. And I gave him a watch. Not very creative, I think...

I love bright colors. Gold - more than silver. And glitter...

Dots - more than stripes.

I don`t have much washi-tape but I use it a lot. For album decoration or for postcards.

I had lots of fun making Pocket Letters and would like to swap some again.

Flip-Books that I can use as mini albums.

For the mini albums (I make about 15 every christmas for my family and friends) I use a lot of embellishments. I make them from scraps - I can use every small piece of paper for it.

I am a craftster and I appreciate it when I get self made stuff from others. I think that it worths a lot when people invest their precious time to create something individual.

Favorite Music

I hear almost everything - it`s all up to my mood. My favorite band is The Prodigy. I think their music is a fantastic mix of everything that I like.

Favorite Books

Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams wrote the books of my youth. I grew up with their fantasy novels. I also like Science-Fiction and Crime Thrillers.

Favorite Movies

Definitely Horror movies! My favorite one is Shaune of the dead. And the classic Night of the living dead.

But I like not only zombie movies.

I like most Disney movies, especially the classics. My favorite is Robin Hood - so cute!!!

not my cup of tea...

Sports. The nearest that I come to sports is by playing videogames...

I am not a planer-girl. I had planers years ago but now I don`t use one.

Dark colors and dark chocolate - and I also don`t like spicy chocolate.

would love to receive...


♥ bright colored stuff

♥ embellishments

♥ dotty stuff

♥ tropical prints

♥ stickers (if I don`t use them, my son will!)

♥ everything golden

♥ all about video games - especially the old ones from the 80s and 90s

♥ tiny pieces of paper - I use every small bit of paper to make embellishments (and if you have any paperscraps you don`t like, send it as well: my son loves to use his little scissors and cut paper into smithereens)

would not be too happy with...


♦ cosmetics and lotions

♦ dirty stuff (really....)

Comment: Thanks for the schmetterlinge pocket letter. Our parade is every second Sunday in September, this year on the 10th. You really should come and see it some time! And while you are here you should go to De efteling as well! About a 40 minute drive from here.(I'm so sorry, I forgot to mark the 5... by the way, the parade was yesterday and we won 4th place)

Comment: What a gorgeous pocket letter Romy! I love the adorable animals you chose (the fox with glasses is SO cute!!!). It's a very lovely addition to my PL collection! Thank you as well for the wide variety of goodies, they are a welcome addition to my stash. I especially love the one syou handmade, they're awesome! I'm tickled you love Discworld too!! Death is one of my faves, along with Death of Rats, *SQUEAK* hehe. It's hard to pick just one favourite character though....Tiffany, Granny, Nanny, the Nac Mac Feegle...I have so many! :) I just finished reading the Shepherds Crown. It was so bittersweet to finish reading the series.
Response: Thank you so much for your comment! Sir Terry did an awesome job by creating great characters. Even the not so nice ones (like Vetinari) are real cool... :D

USAFwife rated for NH: Big Washi Swap - Int'l #2 on Aug 22, 2017
Comment: Thank you for all the cute tapes. :) Loved your envelope as well. :) Did you enjoy the book, as well?
Response: Thanks for the rating! :) Well... It was not really fun to read this book but not because it was bad written! After I finished it, I thought a lot about the whole story and every single event that was a nail in Hannah`s coffin. The most important question for me was, what would I do if I was in Mr. Porter`s stead. It was no light fare but I am happy to have read it! Thank you for this hint! :D
Comment: wunderbar, danke!
Response: Bitteschön! :) Danke für die Bewertung und das Herz!

Thank you so much for the "ugly" washi RAK - I actually rather like it! :) I will be adding it to the little stash of planner-related goodies I'm giving my eldest as part of her birthday gift next month. Thanks for making my day, and helping me make her big day that much more fun! ♥

CPG: Ugly Washi RAK - The ugly washi arrived but I don't think it is soooo ugly. In fact I love it. Thanks for being so generous.
