diy: lantern

I had a diy night the other day, we made laterns from paper.

In Germany it is a tradition to make lanterns and walk with them outdoors during the dark time of the year, ususally during fall. Mostly it is done by children with their parents. But who cares?

I made this matryoshka lantern, with a pattern I drew myself. First I wanted to make an owl, but the body turnded out a bit different and simply screamed for a little doll.

 This is what we came up with. The snake was made before, and modeled for us. ;)

Of course did we take the lanterns out too, it was really fun and nothing was set on fire. ;)

I think I might use my lantern as a decoration from now on, because I think it turned too out cute not to be displayed. And if stay in the room, it will be save - especially if I put the candle into a little glass and then into the body.

What you need:

- an idea/a pattern, selfmade or f. ex. downloaded
- thick cardboard
- transparent paper
- scissors
- glue
- wire, for mounting the stick.
- a stick
- a candle, I used a tea light and it worked fine

It was last year when I first thought of you in a more-than-friends way. It was this summer when I thought of you more often than usual. It was this September when I realized that I have fallen for you.

I woke up at 3 a.m. and the thought of you was in my head. I couldn´t go back to sleep. Adrenalin wouldn´t let me. The range of my heartbeat reached the sky.

Uncertainty was killing me, I wanted to know. And you let me close. So close that I could hear you heart beat, literally. I was sure. But it was to good to be true.

I told you. And I had to wait almost 24 hours until you would come to my place, so we could talk in person. You came up the stairs and I could see that you were sorry. Too good to be true. You said you were sorry for sending me signs. Friendzoned, happens to girls too. You looked guilty. You´d better still be.

The first day after the talk was good. I was happy and felt almost free, it felt good to know.
The second day was horrible. Hearing is not understanding. Understanding is not accepting. The meaning of your words kicked in when I sat in the library, supposed to work.
On the third day did I leave town. We´d been together at so many of my usual places. They all reminded me of you. Leaving changed nothing.

Now am I only empty. I wake up in the morning, my first thought goes to the uselessness of my thoughts of you. I get up and wonder whether it´s ok to feel this worthless.

Knowing, we wouldn´t have matched anyway.

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was formless and empty. Darkness was on the surface of the deep. God's Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters.

3God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4God saw the light, and saw that it was good. God divided the light from the darkness. 5God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." There was evening and there was morning, one day.

since last time.

Fall has come. For real.

October ended.


Cinnamon is it.

Two friends of mine showed pictures from their trip to Brazil in last August.

 I´m still in the library every day. It´s going towards the end though.

The thesis will be ready soon.


I made a little smth for our door.


I organized a swapparty for clothes.

Autumn really is my favourite.

And here´s my favourite coffee.

If you´re into Science Fiction, even if not really, I recommend to watch Interstellar.

my own heart.
It´s getting ridiculous.
