LIVe in AQUA.. summer's coming

i haven't posted in ages! sorry. i was sewing a lot, setting new objectives for future business plans, ..
 here what's NEW!

dawanda and are hosting a competition named 'READY TO GREEN'

DaWanda and are both interested in discovering fashion which is not only ethically-minded, but also has a great design and sense of style. They want to promote these ideas amongst young creatives and up-and-coming fashion designers over the long term by launching an annual fashion prize. In addition to being a great way to promote talented designers, the prize seeks to make the public aware of the importance and appeal of green fashion. ...'

if you are interested please read on here

i would definitely love to enter but the deadline is only a month from now. quite difficult to fill all the criteria to a standard i would approve with myself. but READY TO GO GREEN next year!!

another dawanda involved event

'wedding dress' for the fifth time - the festival of urban fashion and lifestyle
this is an event for your calendar grab your clothes and plan a trip to berlin. go for a vacation through art, fashion and jewelry. mark july 10th and don't miss this chance to meet young extraordinary designers!

i was planning to be there as a designer myself. i was even lucky, the team liked my work, but as i'm a one woman business at the moment, i couldn't finish enough pieces for july. i just discovered wedding dress myself last week.. but i'm fallen with the idea of  the festival and will participate as a designer next year!
yes, another date for next year!

they liked my stuff.. so why not give it a try?

.. and there are so many more.. 

well, here's our lucky WINNER

JADDY said..

i would love this necklace as it is absolutely stunning and elegant, and because i have been meaning to wear more vintage and do more second hand shopping. this would be a great way for me to find my way into a great style!
also, i have just become pregnant with my first baby. i was feeling so rotten these last 3 months that i totally neglected my sense of style, as i would just throw on whatever clothes were closest to my bed! now i am feeling better and want to start making more of an effort again to look stylish again - this necklace would definitely help :-)

well girl, you made it! you won my giveaway necklace!

thanks to you all for entering!!
well keep on following my blog i appreciate it.. i will post shop specials from time to time, maybe even giveaways as it was so much fun!
until then or until next giveaway day hosted by sew mama sew.. i will sign up again!

one special dress!

my first dawanda selling - yipeeh!
thanks amelie!
dawanda shop opening was 1st May and today only ten days later.. my first dress sold. and surely more to come!!

mein erster dawanda verkauf - yipeeh!
danke amelie!
mein dawanda shop hat am 1.Mai eröffnet und heute, nur zehn tage später ist mein erstes kleid verkauft. und es werden sicherlich noch mehr!!

 my ♥ Passion Love ♥ emerald dress
mein ♥ Passion Love ♥ smaragd kleid

i wanted to share my joy with you for starting a whole new shop and getting my first customer. this is very special to me. i'm coming back to business after my baby break with my two toddlers, daughter samaire (3 years) and son jaedan (17 months). i love my job. i love to sew. i love to design. i love to create beautiful new things. and i always wanted to share this love with my kids. not only those little sweet handicrafts little girls like (a new cuddle friend or a ruffled pants) but the real thing. now it's time, i started it.

ich wollte meine freude mit euch teilen einen ganz neuen shop eröffnet zu haben. nun mit seinem ersten kunden. das ist etwas besonders für mich. nach meiner baby pause mit meinen zwei süssen kids, tochter samaire (3 Jahre) und sohn jaedan (17 monate), komme ich zurück ins geschäftsleben. ich liebe meine arbeit. ich liebe es zu nähen. ich liebe es zu designen. ich liebe es wunderschöne neue sachen zu entwerfen. und ich wollte diese liebe immer mit meinen kindern teilen. nicht nur diese kleinen näharbeiten, die kleine mädchen mögen, einen neuen kuschelfreund oder eine neue röschenhose, sondern die aufwendingen gewichtigeren arbeiten. jetzt ist es soweit, ich habe angefangen ihnen ein teil dieser welt zu zeigen.

a nice day to you all, until soon!

einen schönen tag euch allen, bis bald!

kitchen sunday ...

where is my sunny sunday? ...
what a rainy mother's day!

wo ist nur mein sonniger sonntag?
was für ein verregneter Muttertag!

our first rhubarb this year - doesn't it look so sour sweet delicious?
unser erster rhabarber dieses jahr - sieht er nicht so lecker sauer und süss aus?

so i decided to stay at home with our two kids and have a busy kitchen sunday and do all the yummy baking stuff .. daddy is working so we have all the time.
first up, rhubarb crumble.. mhmmm.. yummy. with sponge cake muffins and double cream. heavenly! one of my favorites.. i so do love rhubarb!

ich hab mich entschieden mit unseren beiden kids zuhause zu bleiben und einen arbeitsreichen küchensonntag zu starten mit all dem leckerern backspass ..daddy muss noch arbeiten, da können wir uns zeit lassen.
zuerst einmal rhabarber crumble (ein leckerer streuselauflauf, 'crumble' = streusel).. mhmmm.. so lecker. mit biskuit muffins und extra sahne. himmlisch! eins meiner lieblingsrezepte.. ich liebe rhabarber!

i have to make this more often.. 
ich muss das öfter mal machen..

our two sweethearts were tasting everything and adorable little kitchen helpers. and this for hours! i guess this is my special mother's day gift.
unsere zwei süssen mussten alles probieren und waren entzückende kleine küchenhelfer. und das für stunden! ich glaube das war ein spezielles muttertagsgeschenk.

samaire and jaedan

can't wait
kann's nicht abwarten


next up, rhubarb jam. better rhubarb and strawberry plus navel orange jam! tried it, love it!
only two jars.. as it wasn't planned.. but i'm already looking forward to a hot cup latte macchiatto with croissant and jam.. maybe for breakfast some time next week.

und als nächstes, rhabarber marmelade. oder noch besser rhabarber und erdbeer plus navel orangen marmelade! ausprobiert und es schmeckt! hat zwar nur für zwei gläser gereicht.. war ja nicht geplant.. aber es hat sich schon jetzt gelohnt.. freu mich schon auf einen leckeren latte macchiatto mit croissant und marmelade.. vielleicht irgendwann nächste woche zum frühstück.

rhubarb jam

then i made a flaky pastry lasagna with feta cheese and a tomato soup for lunch. samaire was all 'we have to make this more often, mummy, it's so delicious!' and jace ate a whole bowl soup. even my hubby has joined us (no more articles for today!)

dann hab ich eine blätterteig lasagne mit feta und tomatensuppe zu mittag gemacht, samaire war ganz aus dem häuschen "wir müssen das öfter mal machen, mummy, es ist sooo lecker!" und jace hat eine ganze schale voll suppe gefuttert. sogar mein mann hat uns gesellschaft geleistet (für heute alle artikel erledigt!)

soup and pastry

in the late afternoon we went out for a walk. but only a short  one.. yes, still too wet. only a short visit at the near stud. there was a show jumping tournament this weekend, samaire wanted to go and look at some horses. but it was already too late, only the after tournament fries and sausages so we went home quickly - we were definitely full. samaire announced, but next time we go sooner and we don't eat that much, then we can have something to eat there, ok? kids..

it was really a nice day. and we got a late surprise visitor.

am späten nachmittag waren wir dann doch noch für einen spaziergang draußen. aber nur ein kurzer.. ja, immer noch so nass. nur ein kurzer stop bei dem nahen gestüt. da war dieses wochenende ein springreitturnier, samaire wollte hin und ein bisschen pferde gucken. aber wir waren schon zu spät dran, nur noch die nachfeierlichkeiten mit pommes frites und würstchen, also schnell nach hause - wir waren sowas von satt. samaire hat angekündigt, dass wir nächstes mal früher hin müssen und dann dürfen wir auch vorher nicht so viel essen, damit wir dann dort was essen können. kinder..

es war wirklich ein schöner tag. und wir haten einen späten überraschungsgast.

a very happy mother's day to all you mamas out there!
einen schönen muttertag wünsche ich all euch mamas da draußen!
