relief

Journal Entry: Wed May 1, 2013, 9:31 AM

Yay! I got my permanent contract. It was such an relief to finally sign it (two weeks befor the old one ended). so now I can bring my mind to other projects and things. For example testing my new cam - I rewarded myself with a dslr cam. A Canon 400D. And in 3 days I have holidays, ergo much time to spend. I already made a few fotos from my cats - they really were patient models. :) but there's so much to learn. This year I already made a rococo costume for the carnival - so there's another model to take pictures of :D
But there's much on my To Do List. I have a few ideas for a new homepagedesign, a ton of fabric to make some costumes, some pearls for jewelry and stuff like that.

I'm sorry, that I haven't written in (what seems like) ages.

So, this year is coming closer to the end as it appears. I really don't know where it went. It just passed by. And it brought some changes with it. I am now in charge of Manager and Priority and Social Media claims. It's not always an easy job, but it is interesting. I'm not finnished with my study to become a healer, but I am a health coach in my company. So I am really positiv about getting a permanent contract next year. Still, it's not sure if, and unfortunately there are more things that count than how good I am.

I moved, and I am still not finnished decorating my new home. There is still so much to do! So many little things, but I cann only afford so much at one time. But it's really great fun and I have done so much yet.  

I haven't really had much time to sew this year and to make or visit nice events. My head just wasn't in it. But I hope, next year will be better. But finally I started with making jewelry and I managed to tatt. I am really proud of my first wired necklace and I hope I can tat my next one.

I also began translating my homepage into english as well. I hope my english is good enough, but if you find mistakes or something is wrong, dont hesitate to tell me. But at the moment there are only 2 sides translated ... more will come when I have some time next week.

So I hope you enjoyed the last year and have a nice time this fall/winter.

Welcome to 2012

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 1, 2012, 9:30 AM

... and a happy new year to all of you

I hope you had a great last evening yesterday and your 2011 was as great as mine.
2011 was really successfull and I enjoyed nearly every moment.
surely there were some sad moments, I lost my grandfather who in some way raised me, but I am sure that he and my grandmother are together now, ad that makes it easier to accept the loss. I still miss them a lot.

but I am looking forward to 2012. I think it will be a great year, with many challenges. Hopefully I will get a extension of contract in my firm, and the next days I will move to my apartment. I really hope I could sew more and finish some started projects. I haven't done as much as I wanted last year.
But first things first: I have to decorate my new home :D

Just a short hello for you

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 2, 2011, 2:44 AM
pretty

It's six month now since I've started my job, and now it's official, I am not on probation anymore. That's great news, because from now on I am searching for a nice apartment for me and my cat. I am so happy!
Although at the moment it's not easy to find one. Nothing really interesting on the market actually, so I have to do what I dislike the most: just wait and be patient.

But the sad side is, that I haven't got enough time for all the ideas I have on my mind. I have started so many gowns, but haven't finnished one yet. There is my chemise a la Reine, my new stays, a kind of zonefrontgown, my Francaise I still have to decorate and some gowns I would sell.

I hope I will finish them soon, so I can show you some new things


Have a nice time!

I've started my job at DPCSC and now I'm a full working employee. The first week was really tough (I had some 14 hour days because i was too nice) but I'm really enjoing myself at the moment.
My co-workers are really great ad we have a lot of fun.
And I solved two problems - my Laptop crashed (only got him a bunch of weeks :( ) and my Handy's touchscreen works wrong. But I bought a new touchscreen and hopefully I could fix that and a friend of mine has a Laptop she eventually don't need so i could geht it for a while till mine is fixed.

But now to the biggest problem: I have some events coming up, and one of that is a "rosentee" - an evening with tea around the late 18th century.
And I really don't know what I would like to wear. A chemiese a la Reine? Or a regency dress? Which kind of Regency dress? I only have 2 month left to sew the dress!!!!!! It's really tough to decide since it's really not my time.... Why couldn't I wear my Caraco or my robe a la francaise then? *pout*
And I hope that I'll soon have some more shootings up to come, and some new dresses to show soon, so stay tuned ;)

I don't know where the last few weeks have gone, but I'm sure I must have missed a few days.  -.-

A few amazing things happend the last month, for example I had 2 amazing shootings, I have sewn my first Robe a la Francaise (and I love that pattern - at first it's hard to understand and I'm pretty sure I made a few mistakes and there's still so much to do since it's not finnished yet, but it is already so lovely and beautiful) and last but not least I have an unwritten agreement for a fultimejob!!!!!

I don't know when we will start, because they need a few more englishspeaking people, but I hope it will be soon, so that I could make a few dreams come true this year :)

So let's see what will come up next .... :D

It's 2011 since a few days, and it startet really awesome
I hope you had a great start as I did

My job is good, and at the moment I am waitig for a job interview (fulltime job) and if that won't work I still have the option to sell strawberrys again as second job for a few month. So money and job is covered :D
Also I found two nice appartements I am interested in. one of theem is really lovely, and I really would love to live in it, the other one is cheaper but very small. We'll see what the future will bring

I already had a shooting this year and it was grandios- you'll see the pictures soon :D

So what's to do next? I would love to dance again, I miss bellydance and I would love to learn more about historical dance.... hopefully when I know what will come and when I have it all covered I could manage to do that again too?

I have many many shooting and sewing Projects this year. So stay tuned :D
Seems as if 2011 could really be a wonderful year.

I'm sorry I haven't written in a long time.
So what is going on here? To be true: not much.

I am trying to finde a good job, sewing, orginizing nice events (at Saturday there will be the "Petit Dejeuner" and last month we went to the Steamengine) It was really great, although my dress wasn't finnished at all - so the pictures I have aren't reallygood in my opinion. But it won't be the last time I hope :D

At the moment I have itchy feet ;) I really want to travel - there's one place I would love to be here in germany, but Scotland or Ireland would be nice too. Unfortunally I can't make this wish come true at the moment :(  

So as you can see nothing really new on this side :)

Yeah I have finally found a job. the last month I worked only one day a week, and only 3 hours - so I haven't earned really much. But today I got green light from another one which is way better. So I maybe could give my exam a second try as soon as I earned the money. Just another 400 € :(  

What else is new? My birthday wasn't really good. I was really dissapointed about it. Only my cousin and her daughter and my granparents showed up. And not even my partents had a present for me. And that was my 30. birthday. i was really sad. But then I stop being sad and be Awesome instead ;)
No honestly I think it's okay - there sure must be a reason I guess, even I don't know it by now :)

At the moment I am sweing my firt early bustle. It's amazing. I am really looking forward to finnish it. Tomorrow I will post some pictures. Hope you like it. (It will be Legen- wait for it- dary! *hihi*)

So good night!

Lent season

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 17, 2010, 1:32 PM
pretty

Carnival is over. I decided to do some fasting during lent season. Thou I am not the religious one I thought I could be something good to do.

It's not that diet-kind but its for body and mind. So I choose to eat less meat and more wholemeal, do some more sports for the happiness ;) and I started with a spring-cleaning. Something I always like.
Let go some old things and clean up some other. And everytime I realize as I am cleaning up the rooms - I also straigthen up my thoughts and my mind. It's always something that just feels right and energizing. And I hope that It's some kind of good karma for the upcoming months as well. I could use it :D
So ... lets get started!

I am very busy at the moment. It's christmas time and I have to make some presents. I have no money to buy them. The last year wasn't really good or somehow close to good.
But in fakt a few things really were great. The 18th century party, the picknick I made and meeting some friends. But I still have to fight for my money and I think the chance to get it isn't really good.
Still I haven't found a job (I am still waiting for some answeres)
But the next year will be better. I am nearly sure about that ...
I am not really in christmas mood yet but I have a faboulus christmas CD - Cthullu christmas! *g*
So all of you have a good christmas time!

An Evening in the 18th century

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 9, 2009, 10:29 AM
pretty

... with music, dancing, and amazing dressed Ladys and Gents: An enchanted evening!

But let's start from the beginning

I recived an invitation to a traditional St. Martin with roasted Goose and dancing.

It was a sight to behold - imagine you're in cologne in the middle of the city- just entering a restaurant - and with the first step into the room you enter another century. Awesome dressed Madames in flowing gowns, a really exquisite view. And the Gentlemen in their Coats, and both of them enjoying theirselfs while dancing. Breathtaking! Especilly if you're not used to see somethinmg like this.
What amazes me the most was: it was not only adorable, but it also felt so naturally! Not really like comeing home but close to it

I really have to thank Isabel for inviting me and everyone who was around for such an wonderful evening!

If you want to know what I was dressed like just take a look at my Gallery, and I will post more pictures soon

So I made it.
It was much smaller than expected but nonetheless really nice.
Some fotos will come within the next weeks.
It was really really nice, and the next will be much better.
I was a little bit sad because I couldn't finish my Caraco (I had to finish some orders) - so I had to wear some improved Empire lookalike dress. I wasn't really happy with that (although for a three hour dress it went out quite ok.)
But as I promised a friend who couldn't come: I will do it once again. So I have another chance ;)

The rest of my life could be much better. I'm fine, but my ex Boss told me that he became insolvent so it's not really possible that I will get the rest of my money. and unluckily I am a soft hearted person and no straight buisnesswomen :(
So I could really need a Lotto benefit or something like that ;)
But after all that I am really fine :D

So, it's July. Time passes by too soon. The Rokoko Picknick in Benrath (infos about that you can find here) will be next month and there is so much left to do!
I just don't know where to start!
And after that the next event is up to come! Fantasy days in November with fashion show. I am so exited!!! And if that isn't enough my exams will be on March 2010 andI I have another thing coming up - some photos must be taken for that, and it includes a story written by me. (If I could make it.... )
I am really overwhelmed.

And still there are new costumes I haven't uploaded yet... I should hurry up

At least I finally uploaded the last few "Jason Dawn" pictures.
Today we visited Contopia - a Convention for anime and Manga- wasn't as full as I expected. But it was great fun. Carola read and we played what she red.
Next Con is Fairycon  - in german "Feencn" in Bonn. I am looking forward to it. In November we have a really big event - the fantasy days in Düsseldorf. We are planning a fashion show.
There are some more things I am planning, but more about that in the next Journal.

So the last few weeks weren't very easy, and still the next few won't be easier. :( I lost my job and my last Boss still owes me a lot of money. But I'm working on it. I have to visit an advocate, and I hope it will all turn out alright.
Therewhie I had another nice shooting (I will upload a few new pictures the next few days) with the topic "dryad"... and that would be my next LARP Char :) I have the dress on my mind. But i have to loose some weight until then I guess. So I started jogging.
And now I'm another year older (or should I say wiser?)
It wasn't a great birthday. I had a pinched nerve (so I had to stop the jogging at the moment) but allthough I had to do all work by myself. :( Wasn't fun at all.
The party was okay - not the best not the worst.
The next day I got 'kidnapped' by some friends. They took me to the zoo in Krefeld, and it was a great day! My nerve seems to be okay, but today I can't even walk... :(
But nevertheless I took many great pictures - and I also decided to make myself a big present... I think I will visit the zoo in Arnheim within the next view weeks.
One present was a book for tatting, so I will try my best the next few weeks to learn it. I also found a great tatting book with patterns for Necklaces. Must have it!
So much for now. More is up to come
