Holiday Sewing

Hi everyone!

It’s been quite awhile since I last sat down to write a blog post. I have been sewing a bit during all the stress produced by my daytime job which took so much more time than usual (for several weeks I have been working full time instead of halftime). It is not over yet but I hope to get a new colleague soon.

But the last two weeks we had two weeks of family vacation of which we spend  10 days in Spain.

Prior to our trip I made some last minute holiday items:

1. Traveling Documents Holder with a clear vinyl back pocket for boarding passes:

Travelling Documents   Travelling Documents Purse 

2. Small Triangular Pouches for earphones and such…

3. Cases for sunglasses for the boys and me..

4. A little bag for the headphones I bought for the boys:

Kopfhörer Tasche   Kopfhörer Tasche2

5. And last but not least three luggage tags that I made the very morning we were leaving for the airport:

Luggage Tags

I apologize for the mixed quality and backgrounds of those photos. When I made and photographed the items I did not have a block post in mind… I already posted some photos on instagram (did I ever tell you I gave in and joined instagram?! I am @grapesandhearts over there).

Does that happen to you? That you regret afterwards that you did not put more energy into coherent photo styles?!


Well and here are some photos of our trip to Mallorca, Spain.

The boys dragging their luggage bags to the airport… waiting…

… and then their first fight… and nightly bus transfer to our hotel (2 hours… uaaah)

Lots of fun by the sea / and by the pool…

… and in the water of course (o:


Tons of fun for the four of us. We had a great family time and somehow I wish I could stay at home a bit longer. But tomorrow I will have to go back to work and the stress starts all over again.

If your holiday still lies ahead, I wish you a happy and sunny time.
In any case, I wish you a happy new week!



  1. Toll, was Du da vor dem Urlaub - trotz Arbeitsstress! - noch alles geschafft hast! So Täschchen für die Kopfhörer sind ja wirklich super. Und die Luggage Tags erst - so etwas brauche ich unbedingt auch :-)
    Einen guten Start in den Alltag wünsch' ich Dir!
    LG, Sandra

  2. Lovely holiday makes and I love the photos of your handsome boys!
