Diamond-Pinata

So, I got to tell you about this absolutely awesome blog I've been visiting for quite a while. It's minieco and it's so astonishing and beautiful that I couldn't quite take my eyes off it. I've already tried some of her paper-diamonds for my walls, but since I needed some packaging for my sister's birthday presents, I decided to do something huge. Meet my giant diamond-pinata!



I simply used minieco's template for paper-diamond at a giant skale and worked with cardboard, I afterwards covered in glitter-wrap-paper. To get you a rough idea of the process I made a picture of the cardbord-bone-structure as well. Enjoy :)

Ikarus


Today I kind of had all sorts of things sorted out and decided to make my very first DIY. It's a really, really easy temporary tattoo made of aluminium foil. I somehow had to go for wings, cause, well, what girl doesn't want wings on her back?

Knitting-doll-fever


I kind of really love the idea of knitting with knitting dolls and once I read about it somewhere, I had to do it again. Therefore I decided on a cord-covered rope-light-thingy, that was quick to make and looks beautiful.



I actually didn't have a knitting doll around anymore, so I used a toilet-paper-roll with pencils tapen on it. I also used 6 pencils instead of the classical 4 loops, to make the cord a bit more komplex. The whole process is quite easy: you just knit about two balls of wool into cords and pull it over a simple chain of lights. I used a thick one you can also use for writing words or something, because it has an even surface. Smaller lights might work out as well, but it is a lot more difficult to pull the cord over.


Many thanks to Julia, the best roommate ever, for taking these beautiful pictures!

Today's got to be the day....

...(respectively the evening) of me finally getting down to posting something real, something I've actually made. I'm starting slowly by posting my older stuff with the purpose of getting used to being someone really blogging ;) You gotta know I'm kind of hyperventilating in front of my screen, staring at those beautifully taken pictures showing a slightly disorientated me. Enjoy!

First is one of my favourites showing me wearing one of my very first DIYs: this sunbeam-like bangle

Well, hi ...

Well, hi, here I am sitting nervously in front of my laptop, waiting for my blog to suddenly transform into the beautiful white swan I am imagining it to be. Let me spend some more time to run up and down in front of my desk, waiting for the godgiven inspiration, that's gonna produce my first real post.
