back on track in 2009

well- now, it has been a reeeeeaally long time since my last post, this blog is so outdated it's a shame! sorry for that. first, i hope you all had a good start to the new year! second, let's go back in time and see what happened:

last time i have posted i was all soaked up in the winterleuchten mania, preparing for the annual christmas market, making new prints, collages, souvenirs, getting order in my stuff, labeling, pricing, packing etc. two days before the show i was installing the shop in the winterleuchten art hut, giving interviews to the newspapers, freezing my ass off, the excitement rising higher with every hour. the next day, though, which was also my birthday and which was meant to collect last resources and energies for the upcoming weekend, started way off track: i was sent to the hospital in an emergency and they kept me in for 4 days. DRAMA!! this meant i missed the whole winterleuchten action!!! an event that was planned and organized for months, an event to which i have counted the days from the last winterleuchten on and worked so hard for.....damn, i can tell you, this was quiet a shock!!!
so surreal to stay in bed while my friends and family took care of the whole action just a few kilometres away from the hospital and i had a really hard time to realize this and be practically out of control. this was nuts!
my friends brought me winterleuchten food in the evening, pictures and stories to tell and i can' t be more thankful for having such great people around me, who gave all their energy, love and effort to make this last winterleuchten happen.
thank god, my health was not in too big danger, too. i probably had overestimated my superhero powers (haha) and as i am not alone in my banging body anymore (another HAHA), i had to cut low, stay in bed and keep my feet quiet. since then, the troll in my belly is growing steadily and i had to learn NOT to be a workaholic. imagine! life can be cruel ... ;)

so here are some pictures (thanks, j!) and some more here on my flickr.

thanks from the heart to j my love, my little sister conny and matze, to weiny and mo, chris, christoph, tabea and fab, and all the awesome yard people, who made the winterleuchten2008 another blast! i love you all ....

to all you lovely people out there: all the best for the new year 2009, may your life be blessed and your garden full of flowers...i thank you for all your support and for making 2008 such a bless for me. DANKE!!!

thank you so, juliane! it's a snow white winter dream here, too...

unfortunately this probably was the last winterleuchten at nordbahnhof, as the whole area (and era) has to come to an end by September. they build a new train station, a huge maniac project called "Stuttgart21", which will cost billions and therefore destroys many of stuttgarts beautiful places.
if we manage to arrange a springtime festival, i'll let you know...;)

oh, i know about stuttgart21. my godfather works as a "statiker" in stuttgart. he is not involved, but informed. too bad!
we were thinking about a festival in karlsruhe as well. but this year are too many projects to come... one you can see here www.kuschelpop.blogspot.com
we are having this plattform during the time of the art fair in karlsruhe. maybe you could take part next year with some friends?
