Of Thirsty Streets & Such

Von durstigen Straßen und dergleichen I noticed a while ago: Around here not only the flowers get watered. In fact, our streets seem to be much more needy. At least when you judge by the amount of water they get every day. Daily, the water truck will come by multiple times to water thee streets. First, only the public streets outside of campus, but since this semester thee streets on campus also get watered on a daily basis. I don’t mind, as long as I don’t get caught in the drizzle, which unfortunately happens more often than I like. Thee only comfort I have then is not to wonder where thee water comes from … Schon seit einiger Zeit habe ich bemerkt: Bei uns werden nicht nur die Blumen regelmäßig gegossen. Tatsächlich scheinen unsere Straßen viel bedürftiger als die Pflanzenwelt zu sein. Zumindest wenn man danach urteilt, wie oft sie jeden Tag “gegossen” werden. Mehrmals täglich fährt der LKW mit Wasser vorbei. Zuerst fiel mir das nur auf den öffentlichen Straßen auf. Aber seit diesem …

2018 December Journaling Card Inspiration

2018 Dezember Karten Inspiration Today I thought I’d show you the journaling cards I’ll be using for my December Album this year. I designed most of them for last year’s Document December Album, loved how they turned out and decided I wanted to use them again. I merely switched the colors to match this year’s project. I’d love to share them with you. However, I’m not sure about copyright/ commercial rights of the fonts I used. Of course, sharing them as freebies, I wouldn’t make any money off these cards, and sharing them in flattened png images, they wouldn’t be of use to anyone else, still, I haven’t figured out whether using them to share with you guys is legal, and I don’t want to get into trouble over something that I give away as freebies. If any of you know the details about copyright laws, etc. you’re welcome to drop a comment below to point me in the right direction. Till then, hopefully, the least these cards can do is inspire your own projects. Heute dachte ich …

Document December 2018 – A First Glimpse

Anzeige (Enthält Produktempfehlung) / Advertisement (Contains product recommendation) Mein Weihnachtsalbum 2018 – Ein erster Einblick My favorite time of year is just around the corner, and I’m truly excited. December, however, usually is also the busiest month of the year for me, what with all the traditions and the celebrations. At the same time, I love doing Document December projects to commemorate the season. Last year, I bought a pretty Christmas paper pack that I was eager to use. But all the while I was wondering: How can I embark on another December Daily journey without it taking too much of my time? The answer: A super simple album that I prepare ahead of time, and that I then only need to fill with photos and journaling. So, I can honestly say, I’ve never been so on top of things with my DD projects as this year. The album is already done, and all I need to add is the photos and journaling cards, and I’ll have lots of time for other things. Now, I just need to wait for the season to actually start. Die …

Autumn in Full Splendor | Herbst in voller Pracht

Autumn has finally arrived here as well. It’s lovely, walking around campus and seeing all the colors. It only lasts a short while, so we’re making the most of it. Der Herbst ist endlich auch hier bei uns angekommen. Es macht Freude über den Campus zu laufen, und die vielen Farben zu genießen. Lange wird es ja nicht anhalten.
