Taking Stock : May 2015

It's that time again, if you can believe it! Another month down and in just two more sleeps it's officially Summer time here in the Northern Hemisphere. I'm hoping Hamburg's weather will get the memo - June is often a strange mix of cold, but sunny & humid but gloomy days - with heavy downpours… Continue reading Taking Stock : May 2015

Look Back : April 2015

Having turned over the calendar yesterday, I realised another month has gone. Another month closer to those long, long Summer days, when the sun rises around 5am and doesn't set before 11pm. Pretty crazy how the days turn into weeks and then with a snap of your fingers, another month has passed, isn't it? April saw… Continue reading Look Back : April 2015

As it's been a couple of months, I though an April Taking Stock might be a good jumping off point this month, with some studio happenings, past and future travel plans, longer days - and even some… Continue reading Taking Stock : April 2015

Instagram: A picture is worth a thousand words

Have you joined the masses on Instagram yet? At least in my crafty handmade little world - it seems to be more popular than posting on Facebook, twitter and Flickr combined. The thing I love about Facebook posts from friends and other 'pages' I follow are their photos - so it makes sense that I… Continue reading Instagram: A picture is worth a thousand words

Travel : Happy New Year

Coming into this New Year, I am reminded how lucky I am to be able to call two amazing cities home. On average, I spend 10 months a year in Hamburg, Germany and 2 months a year mainly in Melbourne, Australia - during Summer. Hamburgers ( mostly Germans in general) dream about going to Australia -… Continue reading Travel : Happy New Year
