I was not sure with which of the current works I should start after my long absence - and then decided to post something I´m doin´right now :)
A friend of mine recently sent me a page with funny little crocheted things called "Amigurumis" (編みぐるみ, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) what is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals, food, and anthropomorphic creatures, knowing I was a passionate knitter and crocheteer.
I immediately fell in love with those petite little things that I looked up the basics and gave it a try. Definately something I´ll look more into, once you start it´s really addictive!
Here are some of my first attempts.
Hope you all had a wonderful christmas with your loved ones!
My name is Bettina and I´m a 37 year old woman who lives with her beloved husband and a bunch of beloved animals in a 400 year old farmhouse in Germany/Bavaria. I LOVE my family, art, animals, nature and books and I´m a passionate Kitsch-Collector (Specially Vintage Puppets, Robots and Space Age toys)and Pee-wee Herman enthusiast. Since 2005 I´m suffering of a massive case of UF (Urticaria Factitia)and chronic reccurring angioedema what means that my skin is oversensitive to pressure, warmth and other simple daily physical impacts, what makes my life a bit more difficult than for others. Being creative helps me a lot to deal with that. My art is all selftaught, I´m not a professional - even more I apprechiate your visits and comments on my blog.
Nice to meet you, I hope you enjoy :)

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." > Elisabeth Kübler Ross
