Whovian New Years!

This year I'm not very excited about New Years...
Most of my friends are with their families or on vacation. I don't really want to go dancing, mostly because of the prices and all the drunk idiot strangers you don't want to spend New Years with...

I just want to spend a nice quiet evening. But I feel on New Years everyone has to do something or you'll be stamped as a bore....

Nevertheless I'll be having a nice evening with my boyfriend <3
Vegan Bavarian veal sausages and pretzels for dinner!
aaaaaaand lots of Doctor Who episodes!

My DVD boxes finally arrived ! yay~

the view from my window this morning <3 snow snow snow!

oh noes!

I did it again.

I bought some more books. (get me a support group!)

I finally purchased "1Q84" by Haruki Murakami.
English version, 16€, Hardcover and all three books in one seemed like a good deal!

I also bought "Super Sad True Love Story" by Gary Shteyngart. Actually the cover got me a few weeks ago (yes I often buy books if the cover suits my taste). Nevertheless I put it aside and yesterday when I was watching an end-of-the-year marathon of a german show called "Der Marker" with my boyfriend, there was a contribution about this book and the author was reading some lines from it. I liked it from the beginning! 

I'm very curious about both books but I still didn't finish "Skippy Dies" by Paul Murray and "Across the universe" by Beth Revis which I'm halfway trough and totally digging!
I also pre-confirmed the next part called "A million suns" on Amazon!

And for Christmas my boyfriend got me "Der Geschmack von Chlor" by Bastien Vives, which was the one graphic novel I still wanted to have! <3

P.S.: I also finished that job at the bookstore, which is kind of sad because I had some really nice colleagues, but also good because it was reaaally stressfull...
But I already got a buttload of money from tips! and the wage will be on my bank account in a few days as well!
I sold another two bags (yay), and I got money from my parents and aunt for Christmas.
So I can buy looooots of books....lots lots lots! (And the Doctor Who DVDs!)

latest events

I've finally got two days of work off, so this is a small update what happened lately :)

5 days of work are yet to come. I also have to work on the 24th, which is not that bad because I'm staying at home anyway, and the shift will end at 2 pm.

I figured working at a bookstore is very dangerous for my wallet. (because of the staff dicsount....)
I bought some books for my parents as christmas presents, but I also got myself some graphic novels

I started with "Asterios Polyp" last night and I really had to keep myself from reading it straight through.
And I still want to buy "Der Geschmack von Chlor". 

Also some bad news, I didn't take any pictures at the Kafe Kunst Fest, but it was really worth it! I sold some bags, and the pompon cape! Which is why I could buy the books above <3
And there was another Sale over at a friend's studio on friday, which I couldn't attend because of work, but I sold another two bags. YAY

Yesterday morning I got to meet some friends at a vegan brunch, which was super yummy! and I also got my first christmas present a little early but I loooove it <3
and it toally fits my blog :D

Also I managed to decorate a little for Christmas.
My dad and I decided that we won't have a Christmas Tree this year (even if one of the neighbours could get us one...)
so I put some spruce and fir branches on my wall and hang some owlies and bows on them. The owly template can be found here

working 9 to 5

not really though. I'm working 9 to 8 
and at the moment I don't really have the time to do something for myself. but it's only three weeks and I'll get a buttload full of money :D

Nevertheless I'll spend my free day at the Kafe Kunst Fest today!
I'm so excited!
got everything packed and I'm ready to go :)

Tuesday I also got a day off, if I find the time I'll surely post some pics :D

portable paintings ~ prices!

finally stated the prices for all bags and cloth I'll sell

every "under the sea" bag will cost 18€
click here for details for each bag ~

I had to state the prices a little higher than I wanted to at first. But since ever one is unique and they're not printed with screen or similiar, but handpainted it's a lot more effort.
So every one of them is somekind of portable painting and special

last preparations

something had to go wrong. it always does.
so it seems the snail mail screwed up or whatever, but I still didn't get my labels, which is indeed a problem because today I need to give the stuff I'm selling to a friend who will set up my stand on Sunday because I've got to work.

nevertheless I've also decided to sell some clothes I've sewn :)
also I managed to sew an all new piece
a rectangle shirt/cape with a pompon brooch

under the sea ~ finished bags

I finally finished the bags for Kafe Kunst Fest, just in time, which is taking place next week's Sunday.
only thing missing now are the Team Weltretter labels, which should be coming by snail mail tomorrow.
and I still need to state the exact prices, but as I said they will be around 10-15€ I guess.

note: if you can't visit the Kafe Kunst Fest and you still want a bag leave a comment!

all bags are handpainted, dyed and embroidered. click for details :)
