Catching up & PPF

…with sharing my latest little art pieces. As usual there seems to be not enough time for doing both: actually painting AND blogging about it. So I’m trying to catch up and post a few of my latest ‘project’ It’s initiated by my friend Gabriele (she has an awesome blog, go check it out!!! :)) […]

Mail Art on it’s way

Here are my finished postcard for iHanna’s DIY postcard swap.  I started by applying the same things to all of them (newspaper from Germany, white and turquoise acrylic paint and medium) and then they took on their own look… I had collected quite a few leaves over the last months and thought it might be […]

Can you say: ‘Happy mail!’?!

If so, then you probably know what I’m talking about. Yes, iHanna’s DIY Postcard Swap. Even though I sent out quite a few mail art letters and card over the past year, I haven’t joined one of her swaps. So, last week I signed up and here you can see the first steps of prepping […]

Birds – again (or better: still)

I have drawn more birdies and I thought it would be a shame not to share them. (I hope you enjoy them as much as I do :)) Also it’s time for ‘Glue It Tuesday’ (aimee is hosting! go check out her blog…) and so I used one of my birdies for a postcard again […]

WOYWW time

This is not necessarily my work desk, but our ‘blue table’ which is synonym meanwhile for the table with all kinds of stuff on it. I like to sit on this table and add to my journal and my boys’ smash books – especially while they’re sitting at that table too. It’s our favorite spot […]

New Mail Art and Glue It Tuesday

I can’t seem to have enough postcards ready to be sent. These days I find myself working on index cards (4×6) if I have a spare minute. Fun and rewarding – as I’m sure that I’ll receive some pretty art in return once mine fly out 🙂 Here are a few that can go out soon (let […]

Mail Art: IN & Link Love

I’m so glad I decided to start sending handwritten letters and Mail Art again. It is so rewarding! Every time I close an envelope, I feel to have done a little bit to brighten someones day. And be sure, if you ever send something my way, you will brighten my day not only a little […]


I know, that’s what I thought when I first saw it! I liked the idea of taking pics of ones workdesk – I took pictures in the past, just ‘for the record’ sometimes when crafting with my kids. Well, now I have a place where I can share it 🙂 Check it out, if you […]

Birds on Glue It Tuesday

I need to work  on catching up on my art journal (my goal is to do a spread for each week of the year). As mentioned before, I went to Stockholm two weeks ago. I wanted to incorporate a map somehow (I hadn’t been at that location before, so surely I needed a map to […]
