a paper dedicated weekend

+ yesterday I visited a former paper mill, which is now a museum.
Don´t these paper maché doll  heads look kind of spooky? {some more pics on my flickr account}

+ found this link to generate free online Graph Paper / Grid Paper PDFs, very useful I think

+ there´s a short article about 3 designers for children toys in the current issue of  
Burda Style magazine. Happily one of them is me

+ have you seen the beautiful papers in Camillas picture set "paper trade"

+ off to dig into some paper containers, before they are emptied tomorrow ;)

some swinging´s going on :)

thank you for all the get well messages. After some stay at home days, I´m feeling much better again.

I discovered electronic swing and it really lifts my spirits. Thanks to  Caravan Palace 
"a confluence of gypsy jazz, American swing from the '30s and a high-energy electronic beat"   

Maybe you like it too. What´s your favorite music these days?

gold in her hands...

First frost this morning.... time for something heartwarming, maybe a movie.
I like "quiet" movies most. Séraphine, is one I missed when it was in the cinemas and I´d really
love to watch yet.

How about you, have you seen any nice movie lately?

Always heartwarming: private mail in the mailbox...Thank you, Polina!

it´s getting dark early again

the sun - early is she going to bed and getting up later at this time of year. Working with
aritificial light can be cozy but is also very tiring.
I wonder, when is the official clock change?

I was blown away by the number of blog visitors during last weekend. WOW, thank you,
hello and welcome!

Have a good start into the new week, lovelies
I´m getting in with a cup of coffee now

For one week, starting today, I´m offering this rubber stamp for a special price.

Thank you Blogger for the "blog of note" honor and thank you

I found some stickers in my collection, that make nice eyes.

Would love to walk through town... and stick more eyes, but
there´s not much time for fun like this

the grenadiers keep on deploying ...
Some of the little people are not at their places anymore and
I´d love to know who´s found them and what happened to them

Monday and I´m back

some pics from my short family and home town visit. I´m back and a lot of work is waiting for me. Thursday I´m going to visit the book fair in Frankfurt. Anybody else?
Did you bake some bread or make paper dolls?
