a few analogue pics of this fading winter. right now, the sun is shining and the birds call out spring. the last weeks and months i have been missing the real cold and snow out there, but in the end there’s alway something beautiful to find.
some spring at home. a birch twig i brought home from the birch bark shooting. the first leaves show up.
yes. our home is quiet untidy at the moment. actually it doesn’t feel like a home. perhaps it never did. and perhaps it never had a chance. i tend to stuck in a ’sit and wait‘ positition, thinking „everything will be better after the move“, and in the meantime i lost the energy to make it a home.
hello, self-deception! let me tell you, „always waiting for something better“ is such a bad and off-putting habit. you suck. watch out, i“ll kick your ass!
i was kind of overwhelmed by your support in form of comments, mails, letters, links or orders during the last weeks. let me tell you like it is. i’m kind of a loner, prefering to spend the evenings at home, instead of a crowded bar or something. that’s fine with me, because that’s me. point. but since our move we got isolated from our few friends and working from home doesn’t make it easy to find new ones. so, perhaps you understand how much your words mean to me. even though i try not to get devoured by this online life.
to cut it short: there’s a small giveaway to say thank you(!).
just leave a comment until sunday to win a set of my birch bark envelopes. 5 sets to give away. international comments welcome.
write a letter to someone you’re missing to talk to. i’ll do.
winners are: marina, ivana, julimorgen, dorette and sofia. you got mail!
die aufkleber sind gedruckt, die druckplatten auf dem weg zu mir. denn auch wenn sich die prioritaeten verschoben haben, kann ich es manches mal nicht sein lassen … warum auch … und so ziehen in kuerze zwei neue stempelmotive ein
a new product in bastisRIKE product palette: envelopes. classy din long format, self-adhesive, 100% recycled paper. first design: a birch bark photo print. more motivs to follow.
tea and homemade shortbread (recipe by nina) to start into the weekend. have a nice one!
elisabeth’s blog and work has been a huge inspiration and motivation to me for years now. never dared to think of bastisRIKE being a part of it some day. yesterday was the day that finally proofed me wrong: objekt.01 moved into the fine little day shop.
still have to pinch myself …
i am so grateful for this push, elisabeth!
right now the sun is shining and we have 10° celsius outside. i really hope for some winter temperatures soon. i miss the winter and the idea that this one could pass without some really icy weeks is just horrible.
papercuts and tea are my plans for the weekend.
the hot pat pictured is made by kind alessandra aka knots. a gift i made myself for handling the pre christmas period in the shops. it’s just perfect and i love its haptics. made of linen, hemp and bamboo batting. this beauty has to wait for some other day.
our this years priorities don’t allow too much shopping those days. the shop analogue life (again, thank you so much for the link aleassandra!) makes it difficult to resist. but i enjoy to visit it for some inspiring window shopping.
today my shops will close their doors for a winter break.
i want to thank all my customers, this year has been a good one.
new challenges. new products.
and in the end i’m blessed. and incredibly thankful.
now i’m looking forward for some quiet days, to retrospect, to organize, sort out and make new plans. to slow down.
so, this is my present to marleen and her blog readers and to you. an invitation: slow down. take this room by Juan Sánchez Cotán, cleared out by me, and put in all those small things missing attention. those you forgot through the last weeks and months, those you overlooked, perhaps ignored. take time for you and your loved ones.
two more beautiful advent calendar. making me smile every day: 01 02
in october i had to stay a weekend in my childhood home to take care of parents dog. i took the opportunity to gather chestnuts on sunday early morning. glad to know those two old sweet chestnuts trees are still there.
wearing a pair of sandra’s famous wristworms. optimal with a dog and a camera beside.
to stay outside without seeing anybody is the best comfort to me. i love those quiet minutes. no cars, no people, no noise. just the flattering of leaves and thuds of chestnuts falling off the trees.
