Before I start, I wanted to give an update about me being less active lately: I am expecting a baby! Our little family will grow around the time of New Year and I am so happy about it....
It came a bit unexpected because after many years of disappointments hubby and I finally gave up the idea of a second child. And BAM! It happened! O_O
This second pregnancy is way more arduous than my first one. I still suffer from constant nausea and am very exhausted. At home we have a lot to do now and I have barely time for any crafts.
I will see how much time I will have for that with the new family member... :)
I am 37 and a mom of a 4 year-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! Now 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 nearly 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!
For years sewing was my favorite! Since I am a mom I have nearly no time - and nerves - for it. But thanks to the lovely @mgallardo68 I am back in sewing again! If you are interested in a private sewing swap, feel free to write me a message! :)
After the birth of my son 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. :)
I am completely into ATC-making right now and I try to work on my watercolour painting skills.
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.
But I try to do a lot of different DIY projects. I am a real self-made-woman.
Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams wrote the books of my youth. I grew up with their fantasy novels.
I read all books from Christopher Moore. He has kind of a dirty imagination and the language he uses is very... adult... :D
I also like Science-Fiction and Crime Thrillers.
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!!!
Besides familytime I love my 4 Cs:
Cats - Crafting - Coffee - Cupcakes
I love bright colors. Gold - more than silver. And glitter...
Dots - more than stripes.
I have a good amount of washi-tape and I love to use it for album decoration or for postcards.
I had lots of fun making Pocket Letters and would like to swap some again.
Flip-Books and mini-Flip-Books.
For my 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.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. I can`t throw things away! This is the reason why I need so much space for my crafting hobby.
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.
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.

◔̯◔ dirty stuff (really....)
