things I will buy... some day...

Oh, hello! :)


Hi! I am 36 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 nearly 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. :)
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.

But I try to do a lot of different DIY projects. I am a real self-made-woman.

Favorite Books

Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams wrote the books of my youth. I grew up with their fantasy novels.
I read all books from Christopher Moore. He has kind of a dirty imagination and the language he uses is very... adult... :D
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!!!


Besides familytime I love my 4 Cs:

Cats - Crafting - Coffee - Cupcakes


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.

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

♥ stamps (clear or rubber - not postage stamps)

♥ cutting dies for my Cuttlebug

♥ 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)

hints for the Christmas calendar swaps:

♥ all my likes from my profile :)

♥ Christmas decoration made of wood (or other natural materials) or metall (no pottery, please)

♥ small fairy-lights

♥ I like Santas, reindeers, Jul, winter wonderland, Jesus... I am open to nearly everything

♥ handmade Christmas decorations and ornaments

♥ Christmas colours for me are red, green, golden, creme, brown, teal, pile and even pink - the only no-nos for me are silver and blue.

♥ handlotion (the only kind of lotion I would be super happy about!)

would not be too happy with...


◔̯◔ cosmetics and lotions (other than handlotion)

◔̯◔ food with wheat

◔̯◔ dirty stuff (really....)

Comment: Danke dir für die schöne Weihnachtskarte. Und sogar mit Weihnachtsbriefmarke. Wollte Samstag welche holen, aber die standen bei der Post Schlange bis raus auf die Straße und da hatte ich keine Lust, mich anzustellen.
Response: Sehr gerne! :) Unsere Postfiliale hat nicht mal besondere Briefmarken... Ich bestelle sie mir gerne online (versandkostenfrei). :D Frohes Fest!
pahasiga rated for CPG 2018 Flat Ornament - Global on Dec 5, 2018
Comment: Thank you so much for the shaker ornament!! I now want to try to make one like this myself. How did you get the thickness (sides)?
Response: woahr... O_O This needed only two days to arrive! I am glad you like the ornament. I couldn`t stop making them and now I have a couple for our tree... :D I used some layers of rubber foam (I hope this is the right translation) - the colorful stuff small kids use for crafting. The clear foil is some old packaging. Befor you glue something on the plastic, try some different glues. I realized that some of my best glues did absolutely not stick to the plastic. And to pevent the glitter to fall out, I put some Glossy Accents around the outside edges. I would love to see the ornaments you make...! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful box to open, and the awesomely wrapped gifts! I'm saving them for advent calendar gifts, but already I'm so so happy, due to the wrapping with cat themed fabric <3
Response: I was hoping you could use the wrapping for your quilt! :D

Comment: Thank you Romy for a lovely swap full of meaning. This is one of my 2 very first Advent Calendars and since now, a new tradition for me!! ♥
Response: {{{HUGS}}} I wish this would have worked better. But I am glad you make this a new tradition for you and your loved ones! :)
Comment: Your journal is fabulous! I have really enjoyed looking at all the pages! Thank you! Also, randomness, but the bandaids you tucked in for magpie-ness, seem to be the perfect size for my tiny fingers! I have to cut the ends off of regular sized bandaids.
Response: Thank you!!! I like doing those magpie journals but this one was a challenge because of the size! 100 pages and I wanted to make every page look different... When I worked on it with my son, we had soooo much fun because he was absolutely free in what he glues in the journal, which stamps he use and what colour of paint. I think we will do this again. :) Cool that the bandaids fit your fingers so well! Now I wish I would have some more of them... Thank you for your rating me with a heart!!! :)

Weird Profile Deco #3 - Art

I went with sculptures:

Erika Sanada

Erika Sanada - I love her stuff; it's cute and creepy at the same time.

Beth Cavener Stichter

Beth Cavener Stichter - another great artist who does weird fabulous things.

Cameron Stalheim

Cameron Stalheim - his most famous piece is a merman, but it doesn't lend itself to the 300x300 format.

Xooang Choi

Xooang Choi - Does some weird shit.
