Bye Bye NaBloPoMo – It’s a wrap

recap Nablopomo challenge

And just like that November is over and I finished another NaBloPoMo challenge. It is always surprising how – once you are in the middle of a challenge the end is coming up so fast. A lot of fun posts appeared on this blog in the past 30 days. One of my creative role models Elise Blaha Cripe always says “creativity is breeding creativity” and I couldn’t agree more. I have so many ideas of blogposts and just couldn’t write them all.


Nougat Buttons – A favorite Christmas Cookie

I don’t like nougat that much but these nougat buttons are a favorite in the Christmas Cookie Jar. They get made envy year. At least for the past 10 if not longer. I like recipes that are quick and easy and don’t take too much time. This is one. And it taste wonderful too. It has a very smooth almost velvety texture, a chocolate-nougat taste and the white chocolate gives it the extra flavor. I know I am raving but you really need to give them a try. I promise you won’t regret


My winter bucket list 2021

winter bucket list 2021 craftaliciousme seeking creative life

Today when I opened up Instagram my bookclub people from Munich showed the snowflakes dancing. So it is close to winter. I know it officialy starts December 21 but I always feel like December 1 is the day we can say it is winter. Meterologist predict it will be a very cold winter in Germany 2021/22 and I don’t object. I love it. Bring it on. If I can make a wish: let it be freezing cold for a week so all the ice in the lakes freezes all smooth and then add a bit of snow to make the rest of the country look great too. Best winter conditions. Oh I am ready. Can you feel it? Of course I share my winter bucket list for 2021 again.


My new favorite Spot

I finally did it. It took me only a total of eight years. To find my new favorite spot? No, that is only the final result. It took me eight years to finish my “craft lab” aka my now home office. The first time I talked about this space here was back in 2013. I was writing my blog in German back then. My thinking process about the color scheme is one of the most visited posts.

In one of my previous NaBloPoMo postings I talked about the fear of a blank space and why I think I can not tackle this project. The project of having a blank room and can do basically anything. I had put this task on my to-do list. On my yearly intentions list and even on my 1000 in 101 bucket list. This year I gave it another go. Probably because of Covid and I was staring at the chaos during my video calls. So I finally fixed the ugly corner.


Lunch Date with Mr. ♡

How can you get excited about changing tires on your car? When you make it a Lunch Date with Mr. ♡. I hate that job of changing tires every 6 months when we need to put on the winter tires and back to summer once. It always feels like 90 minutes of wasted time. You drop off your car at the shop and then need to come back 90 minutes later. There is nothing around in the area. I actually try to refuse doing anything car related as I hardly use it anyways.

But Mr. ♡ manages to convince every so often that it could be fun if I tag along. So happened yesterday. He suggested we use the time in between for a lunch together. And eating out. I can not remember when we have last done that. Oh well maybe during summer vacation. But that is vacation and always feels different.
