Under the sea (we got no troubles life is the bubbles)

Finally - FINALLY! - I managed to finish the roll and get it developed! This is definitely the last post about our trip to France. I promise. But one of the best things to bring to our trip to France was definitely the disposable underwater camera! The French riviera probably the best place to bring an underwater camera anyway. Taking those pictures was so much fun and seeing the developed photos even more. They came out great! Some of them are blurry or dull, but that's the risk and the fun with disposable cameras - you can't delete and you never know what you get!
Here are my favorites:

An Interview with Curious and Catcat

Today, you can read my first real interview about myself and my work on the DaWanda Blog. It's actually been published on Monday, but since I spent Monday in a bus on our way back from Amsterdam and Tuesday sleeping (I failed miserably in combining those two things) I didn't get to write this sooner. The interview is in German but if you happen to speak German or bring on the Google translator you can read about myself and my shop, my tips for starting a small business and how to get/stay inspired and why Physics and embroidery go pretty well together. Check it out, it's fun!

It's been over a year since I started selling cross stitch portraits over at DaWanda. It's been quite a journey and I've been creating unique portraits for many lovely people, couples, families, friends. I've been blessed with a lot of positive resonance and more orders than my sleep schedule permits. I never had to think about ways to draw attention to my work - it happened all by itself. My cross stitch portraits have been featured in magazines, websites and in a TV spot.  I love what I do (including being able to work and watch TV at the same time) and seeing my work noticed and appreciated by so many people is more than I ever dreamed of. So a big thank you to all of you! I feel spoiled.

What do I want to wear today? // Rainy Days

Ever since we came back from France, the weather has been... meh. Meaning cold, rainy and overcast. We're at a point where I get up in the mornings when it's still dark outside and I hate it. H a t e  it. I sure feel like slipping into sweats and ugly sweaters every morning. So maybe,  just maybe, dressing in happy colors will enhance my mood in the mornings? I do have the distinct feeling the polka dot sweater wants to be my friend.
This is an outfit I would wear while dancing in the rain and splish-splashing through puddles.

Our trip to France (on video)

I'm so very happy that I finally forced myself to sit down and finally put that France video together. We had such a great time in France this summer! I love how a video is a different experience than having only pictures to look at and such a great way to capture the memories.
We recorded everything with our phones and a very old digital camera so the proper word for the image quality is probably "crappy". But apart from that the video is fun and if you always wanted to hear me sing in my beautiful angel's voice or see my  super awesome dance moves - this is for you.
Enjoy!
