Christmas Greeting Cards / Weihnachtskarten


Do you remember in the past, when we had these beautiful kitschy Christmas cards with lots of glitter? As a little girl I was crazy about these cards. Every time the postman brought the mail, I ran outside and emptied  the mailbox. The cards were  put up on a shelve,  and sometimes I even tried to copy them. Also the Christmas calendars were decorated with glitter. And behind the little doors there were motives, which corresponded to the illustration on the calendar.

Erinnert ihr euch? Früher gab es doch immer diese schönen kitschigen Weihnachtskarten mit ganz viel Glitzer. Als kleines Mädchen war ich ganz verrückt nach diesen Karten. Jedesmal wenn der Briefträger die Post gebracht hatte, bin ich gleich nach draußen gerannt und habe den Briefkasten gelehrt. Die Karten wurden dann aufgestellt, und manchmal auch von mir abgemalt. Auch die Weihnachtskalender waren mit Glitzer verziert. Und hinter den Türchen verbargen sich Motive, die der Illustration auf dem Kalender entsprachen.  


Since 2014 I have been writing and illustrating books for children, mainly for preschool age. In the meantime I have published three animal stories. More picture books are in progress. If you are interested in readings (Kindergarten), my books or any illustration work, please feel free to contact me. I live with my family and a funny poodle in the beautiful Weserbergland, Germany.
