..... on the move...;-)

...hope you weekend was as good as mine..;-) Saturday I have been at the shop opening of creavil. There weren´t that many people there, but I did meet some friends/customers from the shop I used to work for. And that was great!!! Nice to see them again and being able to tell them were I had disappeared to! Dani´s shop is very nice ( did not take any pictures, DH needed my camera) and I hope she will be very successful with it! I could not help, but I had to get me some stuff. Seams like I have got a soft spot for Tim Holtz...;-)
In the evening we were invited for dinner at a friend´s house and we had so much fun there, haven't laughed this much in quite a while...! I sat next to one Italian and one Spanish girl, on they were both much fun!
Sunday we were mostly home and had some good family time, played board games with the kids, had nice tea and later dinner. I spent some ( long) time on the phone, talking to my dad, my auntie, a very nice lady from Karlsruhe, who helped me a lot with sorting out the school situation for my daughter. I still have to do some thinking and sorting out, but looks like it will be MUCH better for finding a prober school that will help her with her dyslexia that I could ever dream about here in Berlin! Keep your fingers crossed it will happen!!! I so wish it for her! And it would take such a burden of my shoulders!! My dad offered to help us with the moving. He does not own his own truck anymore, but he will hopefully be able to arrange something for us.
And I signed in for Corinne´s Scrap-a-licious WS in March. It is not the best of timing for me, becaus it will be like the first weekend we live in our new home, but I just have go do it somehow!! And I will!! Looking so much forward to this!
Oh and while were were still sitting at the table eating I got a phone call from Canada, from one of my best friends. Guess what: she is moving, too!! Ism´t that just hilarious!! But her move will be much bigger than ours: from Vancouver to Toronto!!!! With three small kids!!! I don't envy her at all!! She will come to England over Christmas to see her family and she asked me if I can make it to see her at that time!!! I wish I find a way to do it, but how???? We are thinking about if we can leave Berlin at Christmas at all, But hoping over to England as well.....if my bank account would be well filled there was not even a second I would think about it, but alas its not.
Have a good week and stay in touch...;-)

oh, what a .....!

.... ( insert any given period of time!) live is so hectic right now I can not believe it! Well try to give you all the details: first of all I will not keep my secret any longer: we will move!!! Out of Berlin!!! I have now lived here for 22 years!!! Can you believe that??? The kids are outraged that we can do such a terrible thing, but me and DH are absolutely positive it is the right move for us now. We BOTH have been given opportunities that we will not get her in poor but sexy Berlin. And I am craving for going back into my first job love: back into architecture!!! Yeah!!
We will move down South, nearer to both my DH and my originally family. And the thing that gives me the creeps right now is we will leave pretty soon!!! Looks like February right now, but its not set yet!!! Oh Boy!!! Tons of things to organize!!!

Next topic: DH is having his operation today, in fact he is under the knife right now!!!! Hope all goes well!!!! Will know more later in the day!

Yesterday was my workshop....and it was sooo good!!! Not as many people as I had hoped for some very late cancellations.... but the ones how were there had tons of fun!!! ( See picture!)
I had some very sever migraine attacks last week...just what I needed when preparing my workshop.....oh well, I managed somehow....
Kids have got lice...AGAIN!!! I HATE those little buggers!!!! Good it got sooo cold now, so I can put moste of the cuddly toys just outside to get them clean again!!! Last weekend it had snowed for the first time this winter!!!! Sooo early!!

Some more layout I had not shown for the Finding you workshop and one for the last scrapjack...;-)

Ahhh and before I forget it: I have a little toot for you: one of my photos got published! Look here!
Now I better go....more things waiting for me!!! See you soon!

....paper work and organizing

..was nearly all I did last week!!! Its unbelievable how much you can get covered in that stuff!! I do love paper and working with paper, but I do hate sending and receiving letters from banks, town councils, school boards and the like!!! I am really proud that I managed to get such a big pile cleared!!! And now my head is free to do other things again...;-)

Like this layout I finished for the "Finding you" workshop by Corinne Delis...;-)

I got featured on ScrapScene again!!! How cool is that!!! I am really happy about this... seams like I am getting some recognition for all the pub work I have been doing....

I am having some big news, but I still can tell you...there will be some definite changes in our live soon!! But what I can tell you is that because of the changes lying ahead I have got the gardening bug!! And I want to go much more green!!! Great season for that!!!

I found some really interesting and cool sites and information!! Look here:

Keeping chicken

kitchen waste digester

Dirt blog

Seedy Sundays

Guerrilla gardening

Grüne Welle ( also in English;-) )
