Just poppin' in...

... to let you know I'm still alive !!!

Life has been quite busy for me lately. One of my projects at work is making me work too many extra hours, is keeping my mind too occupied and is causing too much stress to handle at the moment. Plus in my case continuous stress frequently leads to migraine attacks now and then, such fun.

Aside from that, I sort of just realized Christmas is not too far away, so I'm currently hooking, crafting and knooking a couple of presents I can't show you until the end of the year.

So please be patient with me for another couple of day. I have a thrifty Halloween crafting series coming up starting October 1st so stay tuned :)

Photo Album Iceland

A few of you might remember that I spent a week in Iceland in August 2012. It took me a while but I finally started working on a photo album. And this time it did not take me as long as it took me to make the photo album for New York City :) I printed the photos last week and glued them into the album this weekend (using good old photo corners) along with the descriptions - et voilĂ , done!

I hope you had a great weekend so far! Well, my one-week vacation is coming to an end this weekend, I have to get back to work tomorrow. So I plan to enjoy this Sunday as much as possible :)

A Beanie for Fall

Fall is just around the corner so it's time to stock up on cute accessories that are keeping you warm! Therefore I decided to make my last crochet project a nice and simply crochet beanie. I think it took me about three days to finish it hooking up to two hours every evening.

The wool I used is Schachenmayr Cotton Bamboo Batik. Consisting of 50% cotton and 50% viscose it's super soft and also nice to hook.

Happy Fall Y'All!

For me the beginning of september marks the return of autumn! (not just meteorologically ;) ) So yesterday it was high time to finish my Fall Bucket List 2014. I don't have as much on my list as last year. But it's still enough to do. For all of you who can't decipher my handwriting, here's what's on my list:

Fall Bucket List 2014
fly a kite
corn maze!
make peach liqueur
wander through the woods
bake pumpkin cookies
go on a fall picnic
visit a pumpkin patch
fall playlist!
drive home for halloween
knit christmas presents
make a fall simmer pot
start a christmas cake
Harry Potter marathon + Dead Poets Society
Enjoy Cozy Evenings With A Book In My Hands And My Dog Next To Me

So despite of the things on my list, I think I'll sneak in some points of Uta's marvellous Autumn Bucket List in my this year's fall season :) It's the best season of the year and there's so much to enjoy! So
Happy fall y'all!
