Closing for winter holidays!

I am closing now for the holidays, will be back on January, 4.

I wish you all a very happy holiday season, a joyful Xmas and a wonderful start of the New Year!

Please don't forget to sign up for the new paper swap:

Paper Swap Januar

Just collect the papers, you have never been using. Maybe your swap partner will love them. You can also gather your own artful papers like drawings, paintings, collages, photos, tags, doodles and stuff you are not sure of and send them on.

Remember everyone is welcome! Just send me an e-mail to and you are in!

Stay warm,

yours, LaWendula

The small wisdom is like water in a glass:
clear, transparent, pure.
The great wisdom is like the water in the sea:
dark, mysterious, impenetrable.
(Rabindranath Tagore)

For this mosaic I’ve put one of my favorite art installation into the center: „Catherine’s room“ by Bill Viola.
I often think, that crafting women, women doing handwork are deeply rooted in themselves, connected to all women who have done before, doing now, will do in the future. To make your own things is to become yourself.

Music: Es kommt ein Schiff geladen (Old German Christmas Carol)


A ship is coming laden,
And rich indeed her hoard;
The Son of God the Father
And his eternal Word.

The ships sails soft, her burden
Of price all measure past:
Her mainsail, it is charity,
The Holy Ghost the mast.

The ship has dropped her anchor,
Is safely come to land;
Th' eternal Word in likeness
Of man on earth doth stand.

In Bethlehem of Judah
A child to us is born;
Sing praises ever unto him
Who saves a world forlorn.

Whoever would embrace him
With joy and holy kiss
Must share with him the Passion
Through which he comes to bliss.

Be with him in his dying,
His resurrection know,
Eternal life inherit
That he comes to bestow.
