3rd Whimsical Exercise


As you can see, I am still sketching my whimsical exercises with a lot of hot inspiration I got from Alisa Burke's whimsical online class while it is still bitterly cold here. I am suffering from an awful cold and can't think of anything else than of the sun!


Wie man hier sehen kann, mache ich immer noch brav meine "Whimsical-Übungen". Die heißen Inspirationen kommen mir nach wie vor während der schönen Lektionen von Alisa Burke's online class.
Hier bei uns ist es dagegen immer noch zum Fürchten kalt. Ich habe außerdem eine schauerliche Erkältung und kann derzeit an nichts Anderes als an die Sonne denken ... 





P.S. I will  also link it to Jenn's APR. "What do you overlook?" is this weeks theme and what I really overlook very often are all the things I have done! 
Instead of beeing proud about all these little tasks I have finished, I am always lamenting about all the to do's I didn't do ... isn't that stupid somehow?
So this week I did my 3rd whimsical exercise, I did some knitting too, I went to the office and did my work, I cooked a meal every evening for my family, I did the laundry, I watered the flowers ... and oh yes, I sorted some holiday photographs as well ... and I am sure you also did a lot this week !!! So you all have deserved a lovely weekend!!!

Outside of my comfortzone


This week, three things made me create this collage which went far outside my comfortzone when I was in the middle of the creation process, because it became such a tricky thing with cutting an glueing and so on. I even considered to put it in the bin ... well, as you can see, I didn't do it.
One point for the idea of this tricky collage was Jen's APR theme this week related to women and the international women's day on 8th of March.


The second point was the fact that I found a lot of photographs of our holidays we spent in Madrid in 2011, on my PC when I sorted my files last week. And so I remembered that it was a courageous Spanish woman wearing a red pullover who helped me to catch a thief who steeled my handbag in the starbucks in Madrid. She had watched him steeling my bag from my chair and so she informed me immediately while he ran away and tried to hide in the bathroom of starbucks. The courageous Spanish woman together with the starbucks waitress and me we ran like a SWAT team to the bathroom as well and catched that shameless thief and so I fortunately got my handbag back and will never forget this courageous Spanish woman wearing a red pullover rescueing my handbag in a Madrid-starbucks-bathroom.


The third point is a picture of a beautiful female dancer hanging on the wall of the dance studio I visit every Wednesday for my jazz dance training. Each time when I'm sweating and gasping for breath because of all these challenging exercises I look at this picture dreaming to dance as this lady on the picture is dancing ... without sweating of course ... and light as a feather ...
 



I will link this picture to Alexandra's Sunday Sketches as well!

A lovely weekend to all of you!

2nd Whimsical Exercise




First of all, please apologize that I didn't reply to some of you who left these lovely comments on my last post. Thank you very much! My day job in the office, the laundry, the cooking and the cleaning and all these things I need to do to keep life going on requires so much time at the moment. I really wish I could create not only some pictures but also some extra hours ...
 I will take a little blog break next week and visit all of you!
However ... I fortunately found three hours to do my second exercise with regard to Alisa's "Whimsical Online Class" I am currently attending. The online class is wonderful and incredible inspiring and I made this collage from my old beloved watercolor papers.
I will also link this post to Jen's APR this week.  
Jen wants to know: What do we treasure? What things are important to us?
Well, amongst others I treasure my colors and I treasure the little old towns we have here in Germany ( I have already collected million of photos of these cute little old towns) and so this is led to my personal contribution this week.

P.S. Oh yes, I will also link this post to Alexandra's Sunday Sketches.



Nachdem ich es vergangene Woche nicht geschafft habe, allen zu antworten, die so nette Kommentare auf meinen letzten Post geschrieben haben, bitte ich hiermit um Entschuldigung und bedanke mich ganz herzlich.
Mein Job im Büro tagsüber, die Wäsche, Kochen, sauber machen and all der Kram, der Haushaltstechnisch halt immer mal gemacht werden muß, war letzte Woche irgendwie sehr zeitaufwendig. Wirklich, ich wünschte, ich könnte nicht nur Bilder sondern auch ab und zu noch ein paar Extra-Stunden hervorbringen.
 Nächste Woche werde ich eine Blogpause machen und Euch alle besuchen! 
So weit so gut. Erfreulicherweise habe ich diese Woche auch drei Stunden gefunden, um meine zweite Übung im Hinblick auf Alisa's "Whimsical Online Class" auszuprobieren, an der ich grade teilnehme. Diese Online Class ist wundervoll und wirklich enorm inspirierend und so habe ich total inspiriert diese Collage aus meinen geliebten, alten Wasserfarb-Papieren gemacht.
Ich werde diesen Post auch zu Jen's APR verlinken.  
Jen möchte diese Woche wissen: Was wir schätzen und aufbewahren und welche Dinge uns wichtig sind.
Ich gestehe, es gibt da enorm viel bei mir, was ich schätze und sammle, ja vor allem sammle. Unter anderem liebe ich meine Farben, meine alten Wasserfarb-Papiere und ich liebe diese putzigen, kleinen, alten Städte von denen wir hier in Deutschland eine ganze Menge haben (in meinem Photo-Fundus befinden sich inzwischen mindestens Millionen Photos davon). Und das wiederum führte zu meinem persönlichen kreativen Beitrag diese Woche.

P.S. Oh ja klar, ich werde diesen Post auch zu Alexandra's Sunday Sketches verlinken.



Und ich wünsche ein schönes Wochenende!
Enjoy the weekend!


Stefanie
