some little lady bags, always nice for birthday presents.
Thank god I have such charming boys who are often invited by girls- so I can play around with pink, flowers and all this girly stuff :)
And - I won't forget the little boys:
a cosy cushion with an application of a picture my husband drawed for me. He should have become a childbook illustrator, I think!

(I'm not going to tell the story about how my baby grabbed some and took them to his mouth...)
Because I think I won't be able to give them away I'll make some rings for myself.
I also found this very nice cross stitched picture which was "prisoned" behind glass. I prefered to free it and have it pure on the wall in the babys room.
Cross stitching is something else on my to do list, I really like it but more things are waiting to be finished, first. In advent time I will post my big cross stich project I did about three years ago.

This bib for my youngest (which usually has to be changed just one moment after I put it on him- a real spit baby...).
I've tried to sew this circular framed piece of fabric with stitched letter. I thougt I've seen at a tutorial here , but unfortunately I couldn't find it anymore. If you have any idea, just let me know.
It looks quite "handmade" but it does its job and for both I like it.
To be continued...

in an old photo album and I was really surprised to see that things obviously started earlier than I thought.
It's me at my grandparents home surrounded by ribbons and THE german sewing/pattern magazine Burda. Unfortunately I couldn't yet figure out what's in my hands...

It turned out as I was a bit afraid it would: deciding on crafting, blogging, care for my shop, surf the web and live my real life with family I must confess: this blog will always be last on my list :-(((
Nevertheless I try to do my best and come in by and by to show things I did or like or even both!
For example I made these little tampon holders:
and a bag with fitting tissue and tampon holders:
the button again is made with polymer clay.
They have gone to DaWanda but I love it so much, I'm working on one for my own.

The pink pair will go to my shop at DaWanda, cause I don't have a baby girl...

Meanwhile I could show you my favourite shoes:
They are from CAMPER, which has a line called "twins", where the left allways looks different from the right shoe. I really like them, but I changed the button, I thougt this one was nicer. They should be cleaned soon. You know what I use for it? - Lipstick!!!

It took me quite a few weeks to decide starting- and then establish- my own blog, 'cause what vintage plaesure expresses in her blog is exactly how I feel about it. But all the comments there encouraged me to do it , nevertheless. Although your creativity intimidates me a bit...
I decided to go here with English, 'cause most blogs I like are and I catch myself thinking English when I'm busy with some crafy stuff.
Maybe I'll change this later again, when I find out nobody understands me or words fail me, literally. So excuse me faults, please!
Anyway, I like to have a blog at least for myself to archive things and thoughts I make ,so I don't have to think it over and over again.
Reviving my hidden pleasures and talents started about three months ago. While nursing my baby and thinking about how to bridge the financial hole between his first birthday- when government stops paying "parentsmoney" which they recently shortened from 2 to 1 year- and his entrance to nursery school with 18 months giving me time to go work outdoors.
So, there should be an opportunity to earn some money while keeping the house and one thing- at least- I can do is sewing!
I made a couple of tissue-bags 'cause I like them so much and think everybody should have one.
I also think this will be the only stuff I will ever give to sell.
Instead, inspired by all of You lovely crafters I spend lots of money (if hubby knew...) to buy nice fabrics and all kinds of accessories, sewing or crafting somehow one prototype after the other which I wouldn't sell because I like them too much, myself.
Time to re-do is rare, having three lovely boys aged 10 years, 5 years and soon 5 months, who wants to be fed, dressed, entertained, hugged and so on...
In short words, throwing all insecurities and ifs or buts overboard, I finally dared to enter here and we'll see, if I can make it.
