Today I was very honored to be invited by Hans-Werner Guth to join him and some more origami enthusiasts from around Cologne to spend an afternoon in the sun, folding modular origami and eating yummie cake. I have never really done origami before and – as always – I picked one of the most difficult models to start with – the one you see on top. Isn’t it amazingly beautiful? I have to ask about the name again.

The folding of the parts was actually pretty easy, but the assembling is really quiet tricky. I got about half of it done – yay. I will try to do the rest at home – will see how that works… And I’m definitely looking forward to the next "Faltnachmittag"…

Airmail postcard: Hello

I’m so excited to finally post about my airmail postcards. They’re the first thing I ever had printed and I’m superhappy with how they turned out.

Some of you probably know that I’m a bit obsessed with everything airmail (you’re invited to join my airmail flickr group, if you feel the same). A while back I cut out a striped airmail frame and it’s been sitting on my desk waiting to be made into something – until one day I looked at it and thought how fabulous it would be to have a simple airmail framed postcard that you can draw on or cut out or or or…

There are so many things you can do with them, so I’m pretty sure you’ll come up with a lot more creative uses… Last night I had lots of fun making little postcard packs to put in the shops – you can find them here or hier.

Or win one of two airmail postcard packs with 5 cards by doing one of the following until Monday (Dec 7th) 10 a.m. german time (that’s 4 a.m. New York time / EST) :
