36 Hours

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Photos, The Traveling Artist

What a fun 36 hour short trip that was. This Friday I went to Munich to Scrappies to teach 3 workshops Friday and Saturday. I left the house at 7 am in the morning to get to the airport and started teaching in the afternoon for two workshops.

I had so much fun with the students that were really enjoying getting their hands messy with all kinds of paint media. I loved again how different all the projects looked like in the end!

I had also an amazing “personal assistent” – little insider 😉 Birgit was always there for me to give a helping hand – such a Sweetie!

And Sandra and Gaby, the store owners are so sweet and have a wonderful store full of yummie goodies…even the Eco Green Crafts Acrylic Paints that a lot of Germans ask me where to get are available at the Scrappies 🙂

We were all treated with an amazing yummie Bavarian “Brotzeit” for dinner – yum yum

Yep – we Germans like lunch meat and the Bavarians make the best ….(sshhhh – don’t quote me on that one because we Hamburgers actually would never say so in public…hahahaha- there is a little teasing involved between the Northern Hamburgers and the Southern Bavarians 😉 )

I slept at the most awesome old remodeled bavarian farm house- I so wanted to take this stove home with me…but I think a) Sandra would have noticed…b) the airline would have noticed too 😉

Saturday morning we had some more inky fingers 🙂 The girls rocked it!

And even though a couple students had left already- we managed to take a quick little group photo

Thank you so much girls- you were wondeful and I loved spending time with you.

Ich hoffe wir sehen uns bald wieder- ah jo scho 😉 Schee wars …(wahrscheinlich ist das total falsch geschrieben– LOL)

Then we packed all together real quick and went to the airport  – beautiful sunny day in Munich.

Where I spoiled myself…ahem…I really really really couldn’t leave the shop without it…it was yelling “Buy me, buy me”. I think they thought I was shop lifting as I went in and out the store four times, stoping each time at the bag and petting it, then going out again…just to turn around in a brisk motion the last time, grabbing it and almost ran to the cashier to get over the “negotiating time” – LOL

my new art journal travel bag with some goodies in there already 🙂

And 36 hours I was home again in RAINY Hamburg 🙂 FUN bumpy landing …NOT 😉

Thank you Scrappies and Students- you rocked!


My new Über*Media Online Workshop is here – Learn the whole Shebang about Acrylic Paints

Huge hugs
