I do not want to die...
until I have faithfully made the most of my talent
and cultivated the seed that was placed in me
until the last small twig has grown.

I have been into my SKULLpture a lot lately. the pieces becoming more and more elaborate. the Vanitas theme is my life motto. knowing I too will perish sooner or later is driving force to my creativity...
'Lady Vanitas' is still work in progress. but having the opportunity to visit one of Germany's most beautiful cemeteries she traveled with me for an early photoshoot.

Hat Project - Dracula Castle Top Hat

I share with you my work in progress in weird gothic vampire fashion.
this hat features my interpretation of Dracula's castle.... all wearable and that.
just the perfect accessoire for a vampire ball...

the almost finished hat. yet I think the castle needs to be darkened a bit more...

view from the back. looong bow with bat and blood crest

work in progress:

I cut the single parts of the castle from very strong cardbord and glued and sewed them to the hat.

black paint at the base after I covered the pieces with paper scraps.

painting is finished, now I finish the edge with satin ribbon, add bow, roses and feathers and such...

What's she doing?!?!

Lack of space is my big problem. there is very little room for sewing and crafting. now I've made up my mind to this impossible task of reorganizing everything. my desk is ladden with things, supplies, tools... and I am trying to move them onto shelfes. they end right under the ceiling but still...

dear Santa, I do need a whole room to myself, BIG one!!!
it' s not going to happen, is it?

ok, I am back to boxing, stacking and labeling in my teeny-weeny nutshell.
