Me Made February – Laminated

Today the biggest surprise waited in my little (real not virtual) mailbox...

... beautifully packaged...

... birthday pressies from my dearest blog reader, Christiane: wonderful events to assemble: a relaxing bath, an afternoon with your friend and even a trip to the Baltic Sea beach. Ahhh that is exactly what a stressed mum in the search of child care needs!!! Thank you so much, Christiane! What a wonderful surprise! You made my day!

As part of my Me Made Challenge I wear some me made earrings today, which I made by simply


I bought a book in Melbourne’s Chinatown – please don’t ask me what this book is about, although I studied Mandarin for a few months, I have no clue. I can read that the world ‘people’ appears on almost every page, but then which book is not about people ;-) And it was in the fiction aisle, but that’s all I know. Anyway, I simply bought it for its decorative aspects (shame on me, my dad the greatest book lover of all times would be horror-stricken!).

I then cut out a circle with a paper punch (again I can see horror in my dad's eyes ;-)) and laminated them. Then it was cut out again, a little ring and a silver earring loop was added. That’s it!

Thinking about it – I reckon I wouldn’t wear it in China or somewhere, where there are a lot of Chinese people around like all the romantic German castles or any Bavarian restaurant. Could be embarrassing when they read that I am wearing a trashy novel on my ears ;-(

I am sure that none of you is wearing something embarrassing today, girls!

Hey super Idee... und die Vorstellung, dass irgendwann wenn du nicht aufpasst ein Chinese von deinen Ohren abliest, find ich wunderbar...
