Fun with paper and magazines

Things are only impossible until they're not.  
Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation

I love this quote today, because it helps me reach for the stars, even if, for now, they are made of paper. As golden leaves start to cover the pavements, paper leaves are covering my floor. Inspiring bits and pieces from magazines i like, and cut out paper-doillies for a little project for the Christmas-edition of KidsLife. It was such a joy this morning, to discover Hana Lynch, a photographer i worked with, has featured our magazine  in her beautiful blog, the mom tog diaries. 
We published some of her work about the makeover of her kids rooms recently, and i love how it turned out. Have a look at more of her amazing work!

The air was chilly this morning, and i actually liked it - so fresh!  For a little extra fun this weekend, visit my friend Susan. She has a lovely giveaway over at  Mary Janes Tearoom.
Love for a happy weekend!

  3. Good morning liebe Martina!

    YES, this is the only thing we can do as we TREK through the stars of our reach. SOmetimes I think that is the most important thing in this reach and build our character along the way. AND as for paper? MY FAVORITE MEDIUM. I have tried a bit of clay sculpture but PAPER GOODS are my absolute favorite to work with.
