Well, it started as a joke. Remember the very first lockdown? I visited the plant nursery with my little monster – and it escalated a bit. We bought like ten new plants. I made the joke „A new plant for every week in lockdown, haha.“ – Here we are now. Every nook and corner is filled with plants. Don’t get me wrong, I had plants before. Like maybe fifteen. Now it’s more like fifty.
So if you want to join the plant club and you are looking for a chubby little Panda to spice up your gift tags or flower pots – I got you.
Just click right and save the image.
Of course I created some sentiments for Taco! Feel free to grab some and get creative.
have you washed your hands today? Well, I hope so.
The world is still a huge mess. We all try to stay postive, but I can tell you – I cry a lot at night. The kiddo is happy with all the craft supplies around her and all the crafty stuff we do. At least we can craft to stay sane. Kind of. But to be honest, it’s so exhausting. I wish I was like some of the artsy Instagram Mums with all the cool stuff, curricumlums and big smiles. I’m not. Working from home with a toddler is a nightmare. It’s freaking hard. But. But, but, but – we still have the crafty stuff.
Our newest obsession is soap making. Yes, soap making. It’s really not that hard and the three year old Munchkin is helping a lot. She made lots of soaps for her Kindergarten friends and her aunties. Our kitchen smells like strawberrys and coffee, that’s quiete nice. Since I can’t find a nice soap related stamp in my collection, I doodled one. That’s the backstory. A thriller, isn’t it? So here it is, a new digi stamp for you.
It’s Pebble in a washing tub with lots of bubbles. I just love his little face so much! Ugh! I wish I could show you some cards with him, but well – maybe you can show me some?
If you’re into soap making too, here are some free labels for you. Who doesn’t love free labels, right? Feel free to create your own.
That’s it for today. Thanks a lot to my beloved husband and partner in crime for taking the Munchkin out today, even if he’s as exhausted as I am. I owe you a pizza, mate.
trigger warning, this post is a bit personal. I haven’t posted a lot in social media because I’m aware some people are reading this – and those people have choosen not to be a part of my life anymore. I was like „I don’t want them to hear a single word from me or my family after this shit show“ – but this way they are taking away a thing from me I really love. Doodling, beeing creative, card making and beeing a little weirdo in public. So no more eggshells. I’ll stomp my way back to this stuff, just because I love it.
I suffer from PTBS and Depression. It’s not a big secret to my peers. I’m doing fine btw. Well kind of, most days. If you know me a bit, you’ll know that I gone through lots of shit. And by writing this down I will change nothing to the people who aren’t part of my life anymore. So here is a big f*** you for blaming me for stuff I can’t change, for your lack of emphathy or your privilege that makes you blind to people who aren’t quite like you.
So, this said – I’m back. New old me with not so much free time on my hands but love in my heart for all of you. And if you are suffering from a mental illness or something else – you are a fucking little wonder and you are precious.
I learned almost everything the hard way and I’m still learning. I try to be better, nicer, kinder.
Last week a mother I knew a bit, almost cried, cause we finally met again at the playground. She knows I’m the only mother around playing with all the children, including everyone and got enough toys for everyone around. I don’t mind if I look goofy playing with my daughter and her little friends, baking little sand cakes. She said I made her son smile for the first time in ages. The other kids don’t want to play with him. Why? They are toddlers, for fucks sake! Another Mom I met was almost losing her shit cause she doesn’t know how to handle everything right now and everyone else is like „I’m fine, I’m soooo fine, this ist great.“ No. No, it’s not. I checked – nothing is.
We all struggle. We all have problems. We all are so fucking stupid. We all are afraid. We lie about our feelings. But please be kind and try to be better.
So, after this rant you really, really, really deserve a new digi stamp! Enjoy your little chubby unicorn with his list.
It’s axolotl time! I showed you a sneak of them like years ago – yes. You are reading this right. I said years. So thanks a lot for your patience and now get ready for some axototl action!
Her name is Lotte the axolotl (try to type this without looking; I am looking and still don’t get it right, ugh!) and right now she’s the favorite thing of my daughter. Yes, I let her colour my own stuff. She prove colours everything and she loves pink right now (I know! Damn it, pink!).
