Welcome to a new travel series on this blog! Okay, this sounds enormous official, but I am really excited about what will happen in the next weeks. As the title already uncovers, I will travel back in time, when I was still a student with even less money than now and rather new friends who … Continue reading California Dreamin’ – Throwback 2012
Another subgroup of WGT-attendees are the steampunk-supporter. Steampunk is a science fiction or science fantasy related genre, incorporating technology and designs inspired by the industrial machineries of the 19th century. Fashion is often a mixture of Victorian designs and mechanic things, such as timepieces, parasols, flying/driving goggles, or welding googles. Mostly, dark and brownish colors … Continue reading DIY: Steampunk/End Time Saga Outfit (@WaveGotikTreffen2017)
Ever since I can remember (and, well, my memory is not the best one), I was fascinated by one festival not so far away from the town I grew up: The Wave Gotik Treffen (WGT) in Leipzig. I loved the dresses and skirts, costumes and different styles. I have always loved black clothes, because black … Continue reading DIY: Frill Skirt (@WaveGotikTreffen2017)
There are two ways this post may makes you feel: Either you think that this is nothing new to you or you are as excited about it as I was when I heard about it. There is a way to print whatever you want on a textile of your choice without much effort and it … Continue reading Textile printing with lavender oil
It's been a while that I wrote about my camping car project. It's more than a month ago that we brought the car to my parents' place. This was an exciting day and the weeks after were much more exciting. I couldn't do a lot, because I have no idea how to repair a car … Continue reading Project Camping Car II
It's been a while since I wrote about my latest knitting project and that might be due to the fact that I didn't knit so much in the last weeks. However, I finished the front part of it and now, there are just 3 parts left: the back and both arms. Actually, I deviated a … Continue reading 1/4 – The Norway Sweater
All of this started with a crazy idea. Last Christmas, I spent a nice afternoon with my mother and my sister. We prepared the decoration for a cake and we talked about different things. One topic was the purchase of a car. I never had a car and even when I turned 18 and made … Continue reading The Beginning of a Huge Project
Almost one month ago, I wrote about a new knitting project: the sweater vest for my nephew! Finally, his first birthday came and I gave it to him as a present. I was excited as I didn't know whether it would fit or not. I did not finish it; I left the whole for the … Continue reading The Sweater Vest fits!
I'm really glad that the weather started to be springlike. Well, I have to admit: it's still cold and the sun has not its full power back. But walking along the Karl-Heine-Kanal (Leipzig) this morning was a real pleasure. Not only because of the sun tickling my nose and sparrows hiding in the bushes. I … Continue reading Sunny days just want to be fun!
More than 1 year ago I didn't care much about the weather. Every morning after I got up, I opened my shutters, glancing outside and walking into the bathroom. Depending on the weather I just decided what to wear and whether I would go by bike or bus. Nothing else. After I adopted Voxel, it … Continue reading Awakening in a WinterWonderLand
