About Me

Hi! I am 35 and a mom of a 3 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 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! 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. :)

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 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.

Favorite Music

I hear almost everything - it`s all up to my mood. From Amadeus Mozart to ZZ-Top.
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

♥ Art déco

♥ embellishments for mini albums

♥ 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....)


PeliKat rated for O: Nautical Pocket Letter on Apr 5, 2018
Comment: Romy, what a beautiful creation you sent to me! I love the images you chose for your ATCs and the items you tucked in with each pocket. The little shells and anchor that you used to trim the edge are so cute! I thought the string that you used on some of the pockets was great - like the rope used on boats! And using trivia on vellum for the back of the pockets was a wonderful idea! Thank you also for the wonderful letter - I think you are a mermaid at heart as you truly love the water! Even your envelope was fun: from the variety of colorful stamps and your lovely penmanship on the address to the hand-drawn cat and cat washi tape decorating the back, this was such fun to receive! Thank you for all the care and creativity that you put into it!
Response: Aaaaaawwww..... Thank you so, so much for your lovely comment! It is great so see that you appreciate the crafting work of others so much! :) I like to use random facts and informations on the backs of my PLs. Usually I insert some fun facts about Germany but it was fun to search for some nautical facts for this swap. I never thought of being a mermaid. But you must be right... I could jump right into the water now! :D Thank you for your rating and the heart!

Comment: Hello I received the PL cards. Thanks. Just to let you know the envie was all torn up but the post office staff repackaged it. I think I got everything you meant to sent. Lovely cards, thanks!
Response: O_O What a shock! I hope no card is missing! :( Have fun using them and thanks for the rating! :)

starliphx rated for brainteaser for crafting supplies on Mar 29, 2018
Comment: oh my goodness! so many goodies and then some! definitely gave me more than what i had expected! would give 3 hearts if i could, thank you thank you thank you!!!! <3
Response: I am glad to hear that it arrived so fast and that you can use the crafting supplies! :) Thank you very much for the nice comment and the heart...!!!
Comment: The images you used for this tag are very good (the ruins) and I LOVE how you made the sheep!
Response: I am so happy that you like the sheep - it was my favorite, too! :D Thanks for your rating and the heart - I had fun making this tag...
Comment: I love the washi samples and I love your washi/confetti theme and the little bunting/banner is SOOO cute! I saw your note on the envie moistening glue, I'm intrigued! And the cotton colors are adorable. I will have to find a suitable knitting project... It's a great amount for a dishcloth, but the colors are too pretty for that!
Response: Thank you so much!!! :) The colors were the reason why I had to buy them! Well... and the fact that they are so tiny and cute... :D I`m glad you like everything. Happy knitting!!!
heatherknits rated for CPG Handmade Envies - Global on Mar 19, 2018
Comment: Love your packaging, love the envies, heart!! That is a great idea to use photoshop for the wooly envies! (I am short a printer, I should fix that, it would revolutionize my crafting.)
Response: :D Thanks a lot for your rating! I was hoping you will like the wooly envies... My mom is a knitter, too and I know her passion for everything wool! :D
ittybittykitty rated for Private ATC Swap on Mar 18, 2018
Comment: Oh I LOVE these ATCs! Thank you, I wish I had extra hearts to give! Each one is so interesting, and they are also color-coordinated even though they’re about totally different topics. Super impressive. You did an outstanding job matching up the perspectives of the cut paper on the dot ATC (plus you introduced me to the word decuman). I also love the cat cupcake ATC; it’s just super cute! I like the layers and the embellishments on the craft ATC, and my husband who is Korean-American is curious about the origins of the Korean text. It might be interesting to include other sewing imagery to add to the theme, like dotted cutting lines or lines like seams. Maybe on the back? My favorite is probably the Shaun of the Dead one, I love your drawing style! Very cool idea to focus on his shirt; it’s instantly recognizable. Oh, and a big thank you for the cool lenticular stickers! They are super cool. Let’s do a sewing swap (once my sewing machine is fixed)?
Response: YEAH!!!! I am so happy that you like the ATCs! I always thought, they would be made easily (how much time would one need to decorate such a little piece of cardbord...) but... phew... it was so hard! So many ideas. So less space... The Korean text is from a tourist information brochure from the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. Or was it the Nordic Museum...? I just like the characters and had to take them with me! I would LOVE to do a sewing swap! I really want to sew more again - just let me know when your machine is working again. :) Thanks a lot for your ideas, for doing this fun swap with me and for the lovely rating comment!!!
lorz88 rated for mini-flipbooks for two on Mar 16, 2018
Comment: Romy, Wow the stuff you send is SO amazing!! You're so great at making flip books!!! The owls are so cute and all the goodies you sent!! Thank you so so much!!! Imagine having an owl as a pet, that would be so cool!! I'd love to do another swap with you! Let me know when you have time to swap again!
Response: I don`t have lots of owl-stuff, so I had to search for every little piece for this flip book... :D I am so glad that you like it. I had lots of fun making it! I will message you for another swap when I have more time - and when my flu is gone... :D Thanks a lot for your rating!!!
Comment: Romy, All I can say is wow!!!! Everything was so brilliant! The flip book you made me is absolutely gorgeous! SO many goodies!! I love the doilies and the van Gogh postcards! Thank you so much for an amazing swap!!!!!
Response: I`m happy you like what I made for you! :) The "sceleton" of this flipbook was done very fast but I had a lack of ideas for the decoration and fillings. It took me about 2 weeks to get started with its decoration but then it worked out very well. Thank you for your lovely comment and the rating with a heart!

Thank you so much for the wonderful February wishes in the Wishlist group. I'm sorry about my delayed thank you, I just got to my mail as my Mom was hospitalized unexpectedly and life has been a little crazy. Your mail really brightened my spirits. I love the envelope you sent and will definitely get fun use out of the stickers and labels. Lots of fun to open! All the best to you and yours!
