I’ve been very busy in my studio these days. Here are a few impressions of the small workroom, where all my bags are crafted.

This weekend it was time for cleaning up the terrace and sowing new herb and flower seeds. I love it when it’s all in bloom and the leaves are deep green…

Athens

By | Travelling

After spending a wonderful week on Hydra we stayed in Athens for a few days. Here are some shots I took:

Cats all over

By | Travelling

I’m totally mad about cats. Of course, I couldn’t resist talking a picture of nearly every cat I spotted on Hydra (and that took me quite a while).
So here’s a small selection….

Ode to Hydra

By | Travelling

I’m more the nordic type, but when it comes to vacation in the southern part of Europe I prefer one special place: Hydra. This little island is just 90 boat minutes away from Athens, located in the Aegean Sea. As cars and motorcycles are not allowed on Hydra, the peaceful atmosphere is only interrupted by a donkey’s shout or the chattering of people sitting in the harbor restaurants.
I’ve been there for the second time now – thanks to lovely Dimitrios – and had a wonderful stay. It’s simply beautiful, especially at this time of the year. It was all about eating tons of Greek yogurt, swimming in the clear, turquoise water, relaxing on the sunny terrace and stroking the Hydra cats. Just perfect!

Where it all began

By | Allgemein

I’m incredibly happy. After overcoming all bureaucratic obstacles I can FINALLY get started with my Herzprojekt.. my own bag label. Yay! I’ve had it in mind for quite some time, but it took me a while to take this step.

There was one particular event where my ideas for this project started to grow: A hiking trip through Norway. It was definitely the most adventurous and exciting vacation I’ve ever done. Going by train and by foot we made it from Oslo to Bergen, passing the snowy Hardangervidda and beautiful Aurlandsdalen. We gathered so many impressions, it was simply mindblowing. I love looking at the pictures over and over again..
