...I just took a month off blogging.
It´s not like I didn´t want to blog, but at first, during our holidays, I just allowed the days to flow by - and after that it´s so hard to get started again - especially after school started.

So before I´m back with my regular tutorials/look-what-crazy-things-we-tried posts, this is just a quick catch up on what we spent our time with during January - since this my diary, you know :)

We took a beekeping class. We, that´s me, Ronni and Tim, and it was just the first class - we´ve got two more booked, and I bet there are some more meetings to follow - we´re pretty much decided on installing a backyard beehive as soon as spring´s around the corner.

We dug around in the garden. Because the winter is soft and mellow, just as I like it, and we´re looking forward to planting stuff.

We had friends over, lots of them, and made waffles and vanilla sauce and hot raspberries.

We took the time to finally finish that roller coaster Ronni won on the craft´s fair - it took ages, but it´s finally running and proves to have awesome meditation qualities:

Also, we took the time to play with our Christmas presents - assemble Mehmets little diorama houses and read many thick books and work with watercolors - man, I was so hungry for that. The kids tried working on a stop-motion movie with their Playmobil guys, and they blocked my camera for a long time - which is, in fact, another reason why I didn´t post.

We celebrated Eva´s 12th birthday, and yes, that´s Harry Styles from One Direction standing next to her cake - she got ticket´s to their concert for her birthday, oh, and that´s one nice gift for me, too :) I´m so looking forward to taking my giggly, bubbly young lady out for some proper boyband-adoring screaming :)

And we celebrated her birthday with a vampire dinner yesterday:

So, there I am. I prepared several nice, proper craft posts to follow up during the next week - but for now, I´m going to bed - terribly early for me, but there´s school tomorrow -  starting at 8, some writing in between, and then some more school until four... but I think I´ll be enjoying it.
Also, I applied for a writer´s class in spring. Trying to sell Simon Summer. But that´s a completely different story :)


I discovered this band about a month ago, and I really fell in love with their cozy, cam music - it´s so gorgeous for drawing or writing.
