Atelier Schmidt. Have a nice night, dears.

It is a bit embarrassing to admit, but I am a moon person. Half devoted to the brain and to logic, and then again, very emotionally driven on the other side. I am always kind of torn between realism and a good dose of spirituality. Over the years, I have learned quite well, to deal with those antipodes in my head. I guess it is much harder on my surroundings to get along with this, than it is actually for myself. When it comes to full moon situations though, this is a point I have totally given up on any kind of scientific explanation. Wether I know about the fact, that there is a full moon hanging in the sky, or I don't, I will not sleep. Usually, a sucker for sleep, I simply will not get to that certain moment of rest. No matter what. So, instead of forcing myself to sleep and ending up totally worn out in the morning, full moon nights have become my secret playground. When there is no sleep, why not enjoy reading for hours, or sitting in the dark and listening to my favourite music, while the rest of the Fishbowl is snoring. I do watch the most cheesy girl movies or read inspirational books. Being self employed means, it is possible to manage a tiny midnight holiday and get enough sleep in the morning then. Since I have decided to give into the rhythm of the moon, those nights have become very precious. So for today, it is to the moon and to taking things as they come.

Studio Dinner. There are speckled trouts filled with herbs in the Fishbowl kitchen, beetroot sorbet awaits us in the freezer and the studio, ones again, is filled with spring flowers. Another make believe, I know, but it seems to help a little, as there is sun too. It is still freaking cold, but today I'll go with the small wonders. Before I am setting the table, I will have another cup of coffee and catch a tiny bit of all that light outside on the bench. I wish you an inspiring day and a bright weekend too. Watch out of the little things.

Seven days filled up with everything, and I mean everything. The Fishbowl has been buzzing. There was a not so glittery anniversary, some socially bulldogs showed up, running through this place like in a manic stampede, and there still was a lot of work. But then came extensive sleep. Twelve hours at a strecht. This quite obviously has been the game changer. Together with a superhero moving in, a marvelous Spiderman Cake. We've celebrated chilled out cooking sessions, dinner in front of the television included, there have been friends over, we've been talking all night and laughing a lot. There was chocolate and red wine, we had homemade pastry and some more chocolate. In the end, we didn't even care about the weather anymore. Who does seriously think about the cold, when life is good. This week's Queen of Colors is far too rich to decide for one shade only. The week has been blue and green, it was yellow and it included a lot of red and pink as well. This week has been vivid and I cannot thank everybody enough, who has been part of it and who made me feel very special. Taking all this bright into the next week and sharing it with you. Too a wonderful new one.

Are you in the mood for a little present? Actually, this was about to start in January, but sometimes things take a little longer than expected. You know.
Fom now on, there will be a sparkling fresh calendar page each and every month. Made by me for you. You simply have to click on the calendar link, which in fact, leads to my Flickr site, and there you'll have it. Waiting for you, ready to be printed out and to find a place above your desk or in the kitchen maybe. This is my way to say thank you. Thank you, for all the support and the inspiration you have shared with me since The Tiny Fishbowl Collection came to life. I hope you like it as much, as I had fun creating it.
