In den letzten Jahren ist Weihnachten immer mehr an mir vorbei gegangen, da ich von all den vollen Geschäften und hochglanz Werbung genervt war.  Aber nun, mit nem kleinen Zwerg zu hause, hat Weihnachten wieder eine ganz neue Bedeutung bekommen.

Daher mein erster eigener (vereinfachter) Adventskranz:


In the last few years christmas went passed me more and more, because of all the packed shopes and shiny adverts. But this year, with a little one at home, Christmas has a new meaning again.

Thus, my first own (simplified) Advent wreath:

Materialien Adventskranz

Man braucht nicht viel.


That’s all what it takes.


Fertiger Adventskranz

Und das is er. Der wird nun bis zum Jahresende bei uns auf dem Tisch stehen und Lilly freut sich hoffentlich an den folgenden Sonntagen bis Weihnachten über jedes neues Lichtlein.  🙂


And that is the one. It will stand on our table until new year and Lilly is hopefully delighted about each new light every upcoming Sunday until Christmas eve.  🙂

Angestiftet von Frau Liebe, gibt es hier ab und an 7 Sachen, welche ich mit meinen eigenen Händen an einem Tag gemacht habe, zu sehen – egal ob nur 5 Minuten oder stundenlang.

Incited by Frau Liebe, from time to time I will show 7 things I have done with my own hands on one day – no matter if for 5 minutes or several hours.



Die 2. Pinnwand angebracht. Jetzt kann mir keine Idee mehr entkommen und das Arbeitszimmer is nun eigentlich so gut wie fertig.

The 2nd pin board mounted. No idea will escape anymore and finally the work room is finished.



Die mini Babywäsche abgenommen und schön gefaltet. Wäsche zusammenlegen grenzt für mich schon fast an Meditation, erst recht, wenn es so kleine niedliche ist.

Took down and folded the baby laundry. Folding laundry is almost like meditation, especially if it is so cute and little.



Ich hab meinen 1. Auftrag angefangen. … und so soll es später mal aussehen.

I started my 1st order. …and that’s how it should look like when it’s finished.



Die letzten Kastanien gesäubert. Damit ist die Kastanienzeit vorbei und der Korb für Lilly voll genug um darin zu baden. Das war das beste Geschenk, welches man zum 1. Geburtstag machen kann.

Cleaned the last few chestnuts. Now the chestnut season is over and the basket for Lilly is full enough to take bath in it. This was the best present ever for her 1st birthday.


Mal wieder Butter selbst gemacht. Selbstgemachte Butter schmeckt doch immer wieder gut. Die Anregung hab ich von hier und die super Anleitung gibt es hier.

Made butter out of double creme once again. Self made butter is soo tasty. The recommandation came from here, but a good tutorial is here.



Abendessen gemacht. Gute Hausmannskost: Kartoffeln und Quark. Mmmmhh!

Prepared dinner. Down-home cooking: Potatoes and quark.


Und zu guter Letz, mein neues Projekt angefangen. Aber dazu später mehr. 🙂

And last but not least, I started my new project. But more of that another time. 🙂

fabric hunting

Last Sunday was the fabric market (Stoffmarkt Holland) in town. It must have been thousands of sewing enthusiast who flocked to Potsdam.

My mom and I got up early and made our way there to be on time for the opening at 11 am. It was soo packed!! You really had to push here and there to get close to a stand. It was like there were no other places than this one in and around Berlin to buy fabrics and sewing supplies.

After about 2 and half hours my wallet was empty and our stomachs were asking for lunch. Also my mom had to catch the bus back to Dresden at 3 pm so we had to leave either way.

Here’s the catch I made:

Fabric catch of the day

Some basics and some new fabrics I haven’t worked with before. Let’s see how these ideas I already have for some of these fabrics will end up. But first of all I have to decide if I wash the loden before starting the project or not. Difficult desicions to make, you see. 🙂

The next fabric market of this kind will probably be in January or maybe even March. But I definitely need to make a list of fabrics and supplies I need to stop myself from spending too much money.

And now, off to the idea board …
