Stampin‘ Up: Multilingual Color Table

If you’re a bit like me, you’re somewhat able to read a couple of languages. So for me it’s normal to read blogs in English, German, French or Spanish. And what always „gets“ me are the different names for the Stampin‘ Up colors. It’s really quite confusing to keep them all in my head. So […]

Hot Process: Unisex Shaving Soap

I bought a Crockpot on Amazon last week and it finally arrived (all the way from the UK), so I figured it would be a good time to take it out for a spin. :) In the same shipment I received two packages of freezer paper (it’s plastic coated on one side but can be […]

1st Stampin‘ Up Demonstration

Since I started making soap again, I also got interested in papercrafts. Why? Well, a lot of folks who make soap professionally, shrink wrap their soap. I don’t want to do that.. I put a lot of effort into my soaps to keep the ingredients natural.. Why should I encase it in plastic? Therefore I […]

Something to lather the stress away

If you’re a little like me, you will probably enjoy this soap as much as I will. Until recently, I’ve exclusively been using the bathtub in my parents‘ bathroom. Common side effect: dry skin, because of all the hot water. And bathing (for me, at least) means that the entire body is supposed to be […]

Upholstery 101

I have this office chair that my mum once bought for me. A professional office chair that wasn’t cheap (around 400€) and should be quite resilient to constant use. 7 years later, the mechanical parts are still OK.. The seat fabric and the cushion underneath.. Not so much. Something had to be done, therefore I […]

My first Soap in Years!

I’m currently looking for a new (local) employer, so I have a lot of downtime that I can use to get creative. Cooking and Blogging is one thing, but I always had a bit of a DIY streak. That includes a variety of areas and always occurs in phases. This time it’s soaping. I first […]

Got Balls?

People who know me tend to make fun of my general inability to coordinate my body movements without bumping into the random door frame, table or simply tripping over carpet. Hand-Eye coordination is another matter, entirely. Games where I am supposed to hit a ball with a racket or bat usually end in disappointment. Throwing […]

Landscape in Winter

Standard sized beanie. The colors represent the snow and the evergreen firs and spruces I see when looking out of my window. It was crocheted using a 6mm (J in US) hook and the official „myboshi“ beanie wool in the colors 123 emerald and 191 white. Half-Double crochet all the way and one round of […]

Apples and Oranges..

Sort of my inspiration for this beanie. It’s a little longer than my head so it droops on the back of my head. It was crocheted using a 6mm (J in US) hook and the official „myboshi“ beanie wool in the colors 131 orange and 134 chili red. I’m not really one to follow instructions, […]

I was bored…

At the beginning of 2013 I was finally cast-free but still couldn’t use my arm for much. I somehow had to regain function and crocheting seemed like a good idea. I crocheted for the last time when I was still in Elementary school, so my skills were a little rusty. Mum bought two very large […]
