Premiere Photo Album

 My first photo book and my first book of Tablescapes

 So, recently I was lucky enough to receive a 40Euro Gift Certificate to create a photo book. Now, mind you, I am not a huge fan of these books...prefer sitting at my craft table and creating scrapbooks......but when such a great oppurtunity arises.......

 For my first photo book, I decided to create a book of Tablescapes......

As you can imagine, I had a lot of pictures to weed through. Due to lack of a lot time(this girl still has to go to work) I opted for only pictures and no text.

I impatiently waited for my book in the mail. You can only imagine how frustrated I got when the package delivery guy did not leave the book on the front porch when he tried to deliver. I had to wait a whole extra day!!! The suspense was killing me.

When I did finally have the book in my hot, griddy little hands I was happy surprised. The book looks great and my pictures look so professional!

P.S.....I am now a fan of photo books

Leaving.....on jet plane....

Living in Berlin has its perks.........one of them is I get to know a lot of fellow americans, or Expats as one calls them. Over the years I have met some wonderful families and some very special women, who have become some of my closest friends.....The downside is that Expats are here on borrowed time...usually 3 years. So, in the past 15 years I have said good bye ALOT! And let me tell you, it does not get easier.....

On June 2nd....it was time for Regina and Mike to pack their bags and leave Berlin. As I write they are on the first leg of their great travel adventure......hence the inspiration for the tablescape.

The globe comes from my husband Klaus....he had it in his childhood home

The blue globe/paper wieght was my dad´s. My son now has it sitting on his desk...

The first cut outs with my Cricut Explore Air!

The Northwest Airplane.......sat for many many years in the office of Adventure Tours and Travel.....my dad´s travel agency. When my son was small he would play for hours with the planes. So happy we were able to bring it back to Germany with us. 

My pride and joy....the Concord....I got the plane from the Air France Representiv that planned a group tour for my dad. If I remember correctly his name was Fritz Hoffein......

The Sabena Airplanes......MIke and I flew home many times with Sabena......

Wishing my friends Regina and Mike safe travels..........

EM 2016........time for some SOCCCER!


          Well, it is hard to believe that it is time for the European Soccer Championships!!!!! It seems, like just yesterday the German National Team won the World Championship! Now, I am definetly not a soccer watching blogger, but that does not stop me from creating a European Championship Tablescape.

TOR........the german word for GOAL! Loving my new Cricut Explore Air.....it was a big help making the letters and the soccer ball coasters!

My black dishes are from Ikea, the grean napkins from Butlers(i think!) and the red desert cups were found years ago at a flea market.

Wishing all of you a happy European Championship 2016....The German Team won their first game  2-1.... Here´s keeping our fingers crossed that they go all the way !
