Crow Charm

I´ve made a crow pendant with shrink plastic, beads, and wire, using a stamp from Meer Image. You know that I´m a big fan of crows and ravens, so I´ll wear my necklace today.
Thanks Wednesday Stamper for the great idea!

Letter A ATCs

During the last 26 months I have participated in an Alphabet ATC swap which is now starting with letter A again - don´t know if I´ll make it to the end another time but here are my first ATCs. (Artig means well-behaved, Acht is eight, and Amsel is a blackbird.)

Postage People Update

Yes, life is going on fast - some swap participants have sent their cards, and I already have the entries from Martine, Abby, Cynthia, and Sabine in my hands. Others are on their way or will be soon.
And here´s another link to Patti´s great swap entry.

Button Venus

Here´s my Button Doll for this week´s Wednesday Stamper´s challenge. Venus (Cherry Pie) has cut her hair and put on her wings (Lost Coast Design)! Thanks to Joyce for the old German beads.

Postage People Update

Watch out for more Postage People by Sabine!
And there has been a sign up from Malaysia, welcome to the swap.

Skinny Book - A is for Alone

The challenge for our Skinny Alphabet Book page for the letter A was to use stripes. Remember that my book´s theme is "In the Mood" and you know why my stripes look like a cage and so the woman must be alone - even her bird who once shared her loneliness has been able to leave his cage. What is she going to do now?

Weird Mood

I really believe that if you are in a weird mood you should make some Zetti ATCs.

Journal "Mythical Creatures"

Here´s my entry for Nadine´s Journal themed "Mythical Creatures". I´m not a big fan of fairies, elves and dragons, but I AM a lover of medieval literature, and "Tristan and Isold" by Gottfried von Straßburg is my favourite medieval text - so here are the two lovers some time after Tristan has beaten the dragon, and the interwoven roses show us what will happen after their death.

Postage People Update

I doubt that he´s really her uncle - what do you think?

The first ATCs for the Postage People swap are already in my hands, thanks Martine!
There have been more sign ups from Australia.
And here´s another link for you to check out Abby´s digital Postage People.
Have fun making yours!

Here´s my King for this week´s Wednesday Stamper´s challenge.

Monday, January 14, 2008


If you think it´s boring to check out only my own Postage People, just have a look at what other participants of my swap have done - here´s another completely different style by Martine.
Oh, and then Jane had a wonderful hint for me; maybe it´s another inspiration for your Postage People!? You can use LP covers like we use Postage stamps in our swap - have a look here.

Postage People Update No. 1

Wow, you´re all great! I would never have thought of so many people interested in my ongoing blog swap! I´ve had about 15 people definitely signing up and about five more who are thinking about it - thank you! There´ll be participants from Germany, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Belgium, England, the United States, and Australia. Some of you have already been busy - wanna see some examples? Look here: Hermine, Viola, and Xela have already posted some ATCs! If you also have something to show us, I´ll gladly post a link to your blog or album in the next update, just let me know. Hope you have fun creating!

More Keys

O. k., here´s a bright and funny version of this week´s Wednesday Stamper´s theme Keys.


This week´s Wednesday Stamper´s theme is Keys.
The Card has an Anne Sexton quote (Death sits with his key in my lock - a bit hard to read because of the dimensional lock and key), the other one is an ATC.

Postage People again

I´m happy that there is another Postage People swap again - so here are my first ATCs for it.

The flying ladies came out quite different though similar
in their thoughts, but my favourite is the schoolboy.
