About

As so many sellers on Etsy, I´ve been making things my whole life.

When I was four, I got a tiny sewing machine, which I took immediately to create a kind of drawing: A sad little duck with a falling teardrop, "embroidered" with white sewing thread on a small piece of blue fabric. I still treasure it!


As my father was a graphic designer and my mother a skilled seamstress, there was always enough material at home to carry out any whimsical project when I was a child.
Pencils, paper, glue, brushes, watercolor, scraps of fabric, yarns, leather, pearls, buttons and feathers in any shade of color…

On the avatar-photo for my Etsy-shop, which my father took of me, when I was about six, I´m dressed up as "Autumn Princess" -and there are many more of these photos in my drawer.

Now I´m living as a graphic-designer with my husband Christoph (same profession and creator of innumerable funny little drawings) and my twelve year old daughter, who loves to draw and make little things of her own. For example a computer, made from cardboard and rope (well, that was before WLAN).
Have a look at my husbands shop:

Our flat is crammed with books, photos and all kinds of materials, waiting to be transformed into something new. You remember -pencils, paper, glue, brushes, watercolor, scraps of fabric, yarns, leather, pearls, buttons and feathers in any shade of color…
Since my husband used to work as a cabinet maker, when we met first, we have quite a lot of wood, boards and veneer, saws and woodcutting tools amongst our belongings.
Sometimes it almost seems to be a bit much, we are bad at throwing things away...

Since my favorite animals are crocodiles, alligators, jellyfish, starfish and dragonflies, there is no possibility to have one of them as a pet in our home, so we are living in a pet-free household.
