Why I started blogging and an apologie to the whole Blog world.

I started blogging two years ago after a bad car accident, it was a turning point in my life.
I had to learn many things to do again.
I am still recovering from the injuries!
(Don`t want any pity, just trying to explain!)
And thought a blog would help to express my thoughts on some DIY skills!
That`s the reason, didn`t want to make profit out of it.

I met here some really nice online friends and many amazing creative persons!

A friend asked me if I never thought  about selling my paintings,
I never wanted to do that, because I just gave them away for fun,

I never wanted to make money with them.
But why not try?
If I sell some it would be nice, if not, doesen`t matter!

In my first blog post that I wrote,
I wanted people to be inspired by my work, and who ever wanted would feel free to share it, any DIY idea or painting or photo or something else they find here.
And many people did. And I think this is amazing!
I am fine with that!
I write this blog for fun!

So I started these online shops, to try to sell some paintings, like you can see, havent sell any jet, maybe would never sell any again!
So feel free to stay away from my blog and shops!
If anyone is willing to stay with me, I would be happy!

After  a whole weekend of thinking, and a whole weekend of life threatening mails and comments,
(I think people who are parents and grownup should not write such terrible things, but hey that`s my opinion!)
I think I still must apologize to the people.

Like I sad before, I never wanted to cause any harm, never wanted to be a copy cat!
Never wanted to hurt someone`s  feelings, like I apparently did.
Never had put these paintings on sale, If I had known they already exist on Etsy or somewhere else!
Never wanted to earn a cent with them!
I immediately deleted and destroyed them. wrote a mail to Etsy and explained.
I deleted any photo existed on any platform I use.
It may took about 24 hours until they were really gone.
If anyone copied them or did a screenshot of them, it maybe so!

After I removed the similar looking paintings from my platforms I searched Etsy for every horse, every dog and cat, every girl I ever painted.
And you know what I found similarities on other artists paintings too.
Because a dog is a dog a horse is a horse, animals have similarities!
I just found a exact copy of an Llama I painted ( and gave  them away to an online friend),
just in smaller version.
And a French Bulldog portrait I did back in 2010 (a best friends dog), just with an different background!
But that is okay with me!
If anyone got inspired by my work, I am happy about it!

Fell free to say anything about me what you want!
It`s a free world!

Tank`s fro reading.

Dekoläden und Ebay Funde.

Hier ein wenig Frühling im Februar.
Ein paar Tulpen, leider nicht echt, 
denn meine Beiden Kater würden diese sofort verspeisen;)
Aber Stoffblumen sind auch schön und halten sich länger.
Habe ein wenig in Dekoläden und bei Ebay gestöbert und das hier entdeckt.

Tulpen und Vase vom DEPOT

Ein paar Gläser bei Porta

und ein Pferd bei Ebay;)

Mal sehen ob ich das Pferdchen umlackiere.

I was pointed out that some of my paintings look similar to other artists work!

I was pointed out that some of my paintings look similar to other artists work!

I am so sorry to caused any harm, it wasn`t my intention!
I havent stole these feathers or the nest.
If I had known that these paintings already exist on Etsy I would have never set them on sale!
I immediately apologised to the sellers and removed the silmilar looking paintings from all of my platforms and my blog!
It may took to 24 hours until they finally gone.
These paintings weren`t a template for my art!!!
I haven`t earn any money on them and I don`t want any cent when I would hurt any other artist.
Because I know how hard it is to to live just from selling art!
You have to have the dedication and the strength to live an artist life.
The painting from my cute little cat should be copied as well, and that is really sad that you think I am a thief!
All of you have the right to be mad and the right of your own opinion, but
as I sad, I am sorry and I removed these similar looking paintings and destroyed them!
And I will check the remaining paintings if there are any other similarities to any other paintings.

Secret crafts...

Hello Lovelies, I think after nearly two years of blogging 
you know a lot about me.
I am a passionate artist, a on a budget decorator who loves a good deal!
And a rally crafty DIY making girl;)
But this secret I am offering to you today, 
you see the first time;)
I am a grown woman who loves to sew dolls!

I don`t know if you know Tilda,
 it is a doll from sweden and her inventor is Tone Finnanger
  and the www is full of her.
My passion to sew started really early, 
back in design school and I do it from time to time, 
a dress, pillows and curtains.

But to sew dolls gave me comfort and relaxation;)
I have all of her books...

I think there are more really talented ladys or guys
who have really good skills in hand sewing out there
but I do love my little creations even when they are not so perfect.
I sew really many and gave them away to my little cousins.
And daughters of friends...

After that confession, 
You wanna see some?;)

Here they come;)

Some little pigs, 

and cows, 

and of course the dolls...

The cute little chevron pillow in the back is made by me too.
What do you think?
Have any of  you a secret passion too?
Come on, be brave and share them with us;)

How the little red dress became The Dog Sitter;)

Hello Lovelies, 
I don`t know if you remember this post here

In that post I showed you my inspiration on a painting!
It is unbelievable that it took me about a whole year to get it done!

It seems that I need an unfinished project 
or painting to which I can always come back!
Strange isn`t it?
Do you have such projects too, some unfinished things?

Okay, that`s how it looks on 2, January, 2011.


Hallo ihr Lieben.
Ich weiß nicht ob ihr euch noch an diesen Post hier erinnert.

Da habe ich jedenfalls meine Inspiration zu einem Bild vorgestellt.
Es ist wirklich erstaunlich das es ein ganzes Jahr gedauert hat, 
bis ich es zu ende gemalt habe!
Es sieht so aus, dass ich immer irgendwelche
 unfertigen Projekte brauche,  zu denen ich jederzeit zurückkehren kann.

Habt ihr auch solche Projekte?
Geht es euch auch so, oder bin ich hier ein Sonderfall?;)

Na jedenfalls sah das Bild am 2, Januar, 2011 so aus.

And after a year it looks like this...


Und ein Jahr später so...

What do you think?
If you like her, you can purchase her right here;)
If you like to get a print, just shoot me a mail.


Was sagt ihr dazu?
Wenn euch gefällt was ihr seht, dann könnt ihr das Bild hier ansehen  
oder auch kaufen;)

Wenn ihr lieber einen Druck haben möchtet, 
dann schreibt mir einfach einen kurze mail.

DIY vs. Pottery Barn or the ABC sign.

Hello Lovelies, while I`m feeling better-
  I will show you some creative stuff today, as I promised...

Okay let`s start, 
I think you saw the Pottery Barn signs I mean,

thought by making them myself.
I had this canvas with the "This is your life" text.
Thought why not change them into an ABC sign?

I think it fits better.
Hmm, an empty frame looks interesting too;)

So I had this canvas...
Painted them a light brown, 
than measured the canvas and divide it into small squares.

Than took an ordinary glass and encircle it.

With some darker paint filled the circles and printed
 the ABC in a nice font.

Traced them onto the canvas 
and filled the letters with white paint, 

aded some shadows and some white half circles, and TADAAA...

Ready to hang;)

How you like em?
I think it looks pretty good on this wall;)
