Quick interlude: News in bits & pieces


* My new Christmas collection is currently making its way into my shop:


 White & soft blue


… with more new creations to be added by and by.


* Commitment to Mother Earth: for each of my sold creations, € (Euro) 1 will go towards a good cause that nurtures and takes care of our Mother Earth. I’m still looking into a few possible projects here. The final choice of project will be announced as soon as I’ve made my decision.

Thank you for whatever little things or big things YOU are doing to support, care for, love, heal and be attentive towards our Earth Mother! We’re all in this together, so thank you! 


* Treasury “The Glow of Snow”: Over the week-end, while I was away, my Snowy Felt Tree Ornament was chosen for the lovely Strawberryona‘s beautiful and snowy treasury. The treasury has already expired. However, I did get a chance to snatch a screen shot of this beautiful, soothing collection. Isn’t is  just beauty-full? Thank you Strawberryona!



* WeeFolkArt (full with stunning craftiness!) is hosting a Support Handmade Holidays Directory this year. Head on over to check out their growing list of entries and discover crafty new products and shops for you. And if you’re running your own crafty shop: you may want to try to get it listed, too. Awesome opportunity to be found and seen. Happy season to you all!


Want to join me in spreading a little joy?? !!!

Hello my dear, lovely readers,

as some of you already know, this year, I’m participating in a charity project called “Weihnachten im Schuhkarton” which translates into “Christmas in a shoe-box”. People are invited to pack a little Christmas giftbox for a child in need. Those boxes will be distributed to and in different countries: mainly east European countries, but also South Africa, and yes, even Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

I’m in the midst of collecting little goodies and pressies by and by for this kid out there, and am doing a bit of brainstorming about her as well.

And this is where you come in! ;o))

I’ve connected with so many wonderful people all over the world through the internet – friends, artists, crafters – so many beautiful souls. So, I thought, how wonderful it might be if “my” girl (age group 10 – 14 yrs) received many little happy X-mas greetings from all over the world in her box?!

The more I thought about it, the dearer to my heart this idea became.

So, I invite you to join me in spreading a little joy with
a short, sweet note;
a small, happy drawing;
a poem;
a photo;
anything that can be forwarded to me via e-mail so I can print it out. 

Deadline: 12th November 2008

(Deadline for dropping off the box is only 15th but I want to make sure to have enough creative time for this!)

Your note – drawing – photo – message etc will be incorporated either in the X-mas card I’ll put together (I expect it to be BIG ;o) or maybe into a handbound notebook. I will decide that when I see your contributions flooding in! I also plan on adding a drawn world map in which your rough location (state or nearest bigger city) will be marked, so the girl receiving the gift can link your individual contributions to your country.

Your contribution will remain as public or as anonymous as you wish. All you have to do is let me know. If you have any further questions on this project: PLEASE, e-mail me or leave a comment. I’ll be happy to answer! I’m also welcoming any ideas you may like to share.

Anything that comes to your creative mind is received with a warm hug!

I THANK ALL OF YOU in advance with a full heart and a dancing soul for wanting to join me in spreading some joy to a girl out there!


I am so looking forward to receive your messages. Oh, also: if you like this idea, please feel free to mention it on your blog and linking to this post here. That way any of YOUR own connections ~ pals ~ blogreaders can join in as well.

I’m totally excited and hope many of you will join me! And of course, I will post photos of the finished world wide x-mas greeting here on my blog!!!
