such a busy weekend, keeping me still busy
it was so nice to meet some of you in a quite beautiful surroundig
a sweet girl asked me to make her a BEATEN BRACELET in silver
and it turned out so pretty i decided to put it in the shop, too
it´s still ever so grey and dreary
so the picture of a  lovely little surprise form JULIE turned out really dull
though it made me very happy and i can´t wait to put it to use
when making her berberis caramel candy
thank you so much!
those cookie cutters need a bit of scrubbing to get rid of the rust
and i´m afraid the dog is a German sheep dog
who needs a bit of pink icing to get rid of its brown past
he can peacefully retire here
the bunnies are really fun, too
also some custom made FESTIVE PENDANTS
i´ll do whatever you wish for :)


it´s pretty neat when all those tiny pieces are stored away
in MUJI soap and pill boxes for a Christmas design market tomorrow
so in case you´re in Regensburg stop by at DILLYDALLY and say hello
i´d love to meet you
since i´m not used to real life contact to customers (only digital)
to guzzy myself up and make me presentable
i even tried to pluck my eyebrows with a pair of tweezers i normally use to douse candles
when i read the description of this piece by Martin Margiela for H&M
"oversized cashmere sweater" i thought "i want to go to there (yes, i really like 30 Rock)"
and this must be an interesting fact for those rheumatic ladies out there:
i was this close to start sweating in there 
and i was only wearing two undershirts and one woolen kidney cozy under it
so i´m keeping it
(isn´t this TABLECLOTH awesome?!)
a little something for a friend who´s cat just died
yes, those two are quite hideous... but maybe they have a cheering effect
also i´m waiting for not so dark weather to take pictures
of some nice things i got


some ladys were so nice this week
and put lovely post up saying kind things about WSAKE:
ALMA wünscht sich was
JULIE is happy about a lot of mail in her postbox
TINE is in a Christmassy mood
and a golden LIGONMAG
 you are the sweetest and i say thank you with the last hydrangea in the garden

just when i was thinking about coming up with some minimalistic lamp ideas
for my apartement
i found this quite contrasting floral chandelier on the fleamarket
but maybe living with both styles is the golden way
to deal with any kind of mood
here are some things i found and liked this week:
 a lovely HAT from Wiksten i don´t have time to knit right now
looking for gifts at BASTIS RIKE and in MY WHITE ROOM
(two gift guides with awesome things: ALMA and TINE)
and an other magazine: ARTIG & FEIN



my days are spent quite boring lately (well, actualy almost always...)
after hopping out of my cosy bed
there is a lot of work at the computer and never getting done enough
feeding the cats
and petting one of them - she loves it very much now
walking between my feet which makes getting along rather complicated
she´s very pretty with her single white whisker
then i feed myself
almost burned those QUINCE SCONES
which made sense after my mother filled the whole house with smoke
since apparently something got stuck in the chimney
(not so cosy in my bed this night due to wide open windows to get the burnt smell out)
looking good and ready to send out
have a nice Sunday night!


we just put quite a few merry little things in the shop
- find all of them in the CHRISTMAS SECTION -
lots of cards, FESTIVE PENDANTS (embossed with kind words), TINY GARLANDS (made of iron twine and vintage glass beads)
and i dug deep in my archive of printed goods
and decided to offer a little COOKBOOK on Christmas sweets and a whole bunch of greeting cards
i printed back in art school
it´s a semi-automatic silkscreen print
meaning after a lot of fiddling and adjustments and putting in the paper by hand
you push a button and the screen + squeegee do the printing on their own
even though i became allergic to the chemicals involved i LOVED printing
so i have quite a bit of boxes full of prints i thought i would share with you
the BLACK AND WHITE CHRISTMAS CARDS do still give me a bit of grief
they arrived yesterday from the printer
their edges fringed and awful but they are going to be reprinted and should be ready by 15.11.
now i have to come up with an idea for a thousand greeting cards
i probably cut them into tiny gifttags
and ideas?
take a look at the lovely ZIERRAT UND GOLD gathering
there are amazing pictures to find at those places: NINA, JULIE and SUSANNE
i wish i could have been there...


my sisters say my moodswings are my most annoying habits
meaning me getting into a bad temper
so i try to avoid things making me angry
like watching political discussions and reading articles on some topics
they make me want to roll around on the floor kicking and screaming sometimes...
but i think they are okay with me getting angry this morning reading Sarahs post on SAIPUA
women´s rights always get me started... 
so i try to listening not to closely to news on Mitt Romney´s campain
also i thought of one of my professors saying in the first lesson
places to study graphic design for girls are a waste (at least two thirds of the class being girls!)
because we would all become mothers at some point
and then we would stop working anyway
like this would be our fault if we would choose to go this way
when really it is all about money - more money for men
becoming a mother and stopping working for a bit 
(there are still not that many and affordable oportunities for childcare for small children) 
equals no career in a lot of cases
it´s not like we can wait until we´re at the peak of our career in our late forties
get a young husband and start popping out those babies
the most disturbing scene in Mad Men for me 
was after Peggy had fired a guy making an offensive drawing of Joan 
she told her now everybody thinks she´s just another humourless bitch
it´s still like that - we´re meant to laugh about it
when this business isn´t funny for sure
grewing up my sisters and me were always told girls could do anything
(my dad thinking they could do it even better)
and with parents splitting housework and child care equaly
it is kind of hard to step out in the real world
and i actually sometimes do not know what to do
so probably starting to sing like those awesome girls is a good start:
also: an arrangement for my grandmothers grave
and another guest at the cat food station
very much respected by those felines
