My new art journal

At the end of 2017, I decided I was done with my old art journal, and started a new one in the beginning of 2018. Because I felt the desire for change, there were a lot of changes I made to my new art journal that differed greatly from the previous two journals, which were exactly the same in shape, size and materials. After 5 years of working in my art journal the same way, I felt like it’s time to change things up, a reflection my own personal revelations as well. But that, is a story for another day.

First of all, a look at how my journal looks like from the front:

I tend to like colours on the covers of my journal, because it makes me happy to see colours. The cover here is made from a sheet of deli paper that I used as a paint palette, so there are lots of juicy colour on that one small sheet. What’s different about this cover, is that I have decorated it, sketching a girl and then painting it in. My past two journals were completely plain on the outside other than the colours – I wanted to decorate it at the end of the journal so that the cover matched the inside of the journal, but it never materialised because I was too lazy at the end of the journal, and I was so used to the plain covers that it felt weird to finish up the covers, and then put away the journal for storage. So I was pretty surprised myself when I got the urge to pick up a pencil and draw in this girl here. But I’m glad for it, even though she’s a little dirtied during the process of filling up this journal, because it sets a theme for the journal and really gave a sense of ownership.

Another thing that is different for this journal was how I bounded it. I decided to change up the size of the journal because I had gotten too used to the 6″ x 11″ size previously, shrinking it down to half A4 size. This is also a single signature journal, much thinner than my previous two journals which had five signatures, lasting me for two years each. As I am writing this, I am more than halfway past my journal, with only a few pages left to fill up! It’s just such a quick journal.

But, the most important difference about this journal is the papers that I have used to make the pages. Previous journals used a mixture of artist paper – cardstock, drawing/watercolour/scrapbook paper, but this one is made completely out of junque – brochures from mail, paper bags, envelops, old calendars. It’s a radically different base, which I prepped for the journal by painting, gesso-ing and collaging over the words and pictures already on the paper. It’s not a perfect cover, but just enough that it doesn’t overwhelm and take over the page when I go to work over it.

I have to admit, I really wasn’t used to having junque papers as a base in my art journals. It made me hesitant to try the more artistic things that I would experiment in my art journals, like paintings and watercolours, because I was convinced that the paper wouldn’t take these mediums very well. To be honest, I’m still hesitant about using watercolours in this journal, because I don’t think the papers will absorb the paint very well, but, but, I have tried other mediums and techniques that I didn’t use to go for in the past in this new journal – oil pastels, dimensional collage, paint scratching, acrylic paints.

Here’s the most recent page from my journal (and pardon the not very skillful blurring of journaling):

The bright and bold colours really surprised me, because the junque material and gesso allowed the colours to stayed on the surface of the page, rather than soaking into the paper. I did this by dipping watercolour pencils into water, and then drew/coloured in the butterflies and leaves, and I never knew that my cheap watercolour pencils can end up looking this bright! It made me want to use them more and experiment further actually, and I love when my experiments get me inspired.

I’m having fun with this journal, and the new format is still really new and fresh to me, so I think I will keep it at this for a while longer. And there’s something interesting about finishing a journal in a relatively short period of time, an explicable sense of accomplishment, and the way I forced myself to step out of my comfort zone. I don’t think I’m an expert on junque journals, because I can’t really get over the junque aspect of things, but I’m trying to explore, while using up my stash of recyclables that I will never get to finish. Hope this inspires you to try your hand at junque journaling, or at least to try something new!

When life gives you lemons, make lemon juice

So, my computer crashed after the last windows 10 update. I couldn’t reboot it, and it couldn’t detect the OS anymore on my computer… After some fiddling, I manage to get the Windows 10 driver downloaded on it again (using my old old computer to do it.. I’m spoilt by the quickness of newer technology). But, everything is gone from my computer.

Well, not exactly everything, since it did save a copy of my Windows during the reinstallation, so I actually do still have access to my old files. Not that it’s of much use since I’ve long since learnt to save everything on cloud, or on my hard drive. What really hit hard though is the loss of programmes from my computer, and the hassle to reinstall all of them again. Or at least the essential ones. Right now, I’m feeling the loss of Microsoft Office, which I will have to dig out my old disc to see if it can be installed again, because that disc has been so used and abused (flown from Asia to Europe so that I could install it when the same computer broke down while I was on exchange).

But there’s some silver lining here too, which I am really grateful for right now, since I spent all my time trying to fix this since I got home from work (and it’s the first day in the whole month I left work on time too). OneNote works (thank you, Microsoft), so I still got access to all my writing and stories draft on this computer. And Chrome is just a godsend, remembering all my settings, down to the extensions, themes and background image (this, especially, because I spent time actually curating my new tabs background images. I’ll think about how Google is utilising all these information from its users at another time).

So yeah, the really essential things stayed, which is already good enough, and since I’m starting from scratch anyway, I decided that I’m going to jazz up my computer! Or at least, it’s going to be different from before, because I’ve been using the same wallpaper for what, six/seven years? Hey what can I say, I’m a person of habit, and it’s hard to find something that suits my taste. Considering since I drew it. Here, have a look at this rudimentary work drawn with a mouse on Microsoft Paint, it’s a masterpiece I tell ya, creatively named “elephant”:

But anyway, new desktop background and new colour schemes, and I think I’m liking where this is going, until the next time I feel the need for a change (six/seven years later, probably, judging from past trends). And a fresh start also means less clutter on my computer, with all the programmes I don’t use anymore gone until a day I need to use them again. Funny how there’s some sentimental values to computer programmes that you once used but couldn’t bear to remove from your computer because you don’t know when you are going to use them again, and it’s going to be so troublesome to download when you actually need them.

And on a really, really, bright side, I’m so glad that I finished all my resume and cover letters yesterday, before all these nonsense happened. Yay (and thank god) to me for not procrastinating (so much).

I’m rambling I aware, because my plans for today (since I left work on time and all for the first time in what feels like forever) was to to write. But I couldn’t because of the computer thing and I knew if I put it off, I’ll just be condemning my computer to never work again, because I’m lazy at troublesome things like that. So yeah, you get a rambly, crazy girl instead of some coherent, well-thought out post, and a masterpiece of an elephant to boot. Isn’t that just awesome?

And I’m just going to go before I embarrass myself even further. Not that I really mind it at the moment, but I should. Bye. T’was was fun writing this.

Ponderings: Finding time

I’m so busy nowadays that it’s been difficult to find time. Or maybe more accurately, it’s been difficult finding energy that will allow me to utilise those pockets of time I have efficiently.

I like to think that I’m efficient, and it shows in my work, the things I can accomplish when I set myself to do it. But sometimes that spark just go away, and I want nothing better to do than to laze around and not care about the world around me. Unfortunately, much as I do so, it always feel like I’m not resting enough. And on the other hand, I feel like I’m not doing enough, that there’s a lot of time that I’ve wasted not doing anything.

I’m still trying to find that balance, and I suspect I may be too much of a workaholic and dedicating too much time to work. Add in the obligations to other people, I’m barely left with any time for myself.

Art, has taken a backseat in these busy times. I haven’t wrote anything or did much arting recently. At least, not in my art journal. Started a doodle journal recently and some days I’ll just sit down for 10 or 15 min to do something in there. It’s not much, and other art journalers may say it’s better than nothing, but honestly, I feel like it isn’t enough.

I’m trying to do more art and less journaling, if only journaling seemed to have dried out or something. I guess I can only conclude that my life has gotten more boring after adulting. Funny, because I’m supposed to be in the prime of my life and having fun but I feel like a old women with the lack of energy. Is this an introvert thing?

Typing this out on my daily commute. It used to be that I have half an hour of uninterrupted travel that I could type something if I wanted, but my schedule now only offers me 10 minutes. Take 5 minutes to warm up and then the other 5 isn’t really much of a time. And my other journey is usually a sleeping journey because it’s a bumpy ride and I get bad motion sickness. But oh well. Making this work, somehow. Sometimes.

And here’s a photograph, the most artistic thing I’ve done recently that I can find in my phone:

Happy Monday.

Ponderings: Last journal page of the year and the end of an art journal

There’s always something about the new year that makes you want to start something afresh on a whole new slate. This year, this sense of starting anew is particularly strong in me, as I made my closure for the old year, and welcomed the new one with a new outlook.

On the last day of 2017, I made this journal page:

It was a simple reflection page for the New Year, something I thought of when I while receiving messages to enjoy the last day of the year.

Four quadrants, two each for each year. For 2017, sad to see it go, glad to leave it behind. For 2018, uncertain about the future, looking forward. I wanted to reflect on the positive and negative of these two years, and I picked these four phrases because I felt like they best represent the thoughts I had for this New Year.

Perhaps because the reflection was so intentional, it felt really good to be writing down my thoughts down, unfettered, all the things that I did not manage to say in my journal for the past year. To me, this exercise was really good because it really allowed me to put 2017 behind (because so much things happened and I needed to resolve my feelings about them) and to look forward to the opportunities in 2018.

It was symbolic too, because as I finished the page, I decided that this would be the last page in this art journal, even though there was still a couple pages more that I could use if I wanted to. It just seemed like a nice way to end the year, to end this art journal which had been with me for the past two years. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked this art journal, and it’s my favourite yet, but I was so done with it, especially in the last year struggling with the negative emotions that I had. I felt like I needed to change, from being stagnant, because I have been struggling with my creative process – this is the second art journal I’ve done in the same style, so that makes it five years maybe that I have been doing it this way.

I’m desperate for change, and starting the new year in a new art journal seemed the perfect way to kickstart it all and to embody the whole “start on a new slate” idea. It’s not really a new year resolution, I think, not really, but it does represent the resolve and mindset that I have going into the new year. It’ll be more clear once I get about sharing the new journal I think. Just finished making it yesterday and haven’t got around to any pictures yet.

To all who are reading, hope the new year has been kind to you so far and here’s to a great year away for the both of us.

I’m trying to blog more regularly again (and it seems like I’m always trying to do that). I think I’m still kinda unsure of what I want to achieve out of this blogging thing, because it keeps changing and I keep having grand ideas that I cannot keep up with, but right now, I think it’s about me putting myself out there and not being afraid to show a part of me that I had been afraid to showcase for the longest time. With any luck, here’s to more art sharing in the year ahead.

(That’ll be me trying to take CJ Chilvers’ advice from Seth Godin to blog everyday. It’s not going to happen, but it’s a worthwhile aim.)

Till next time.

Ponderings: (Happy) Accidents

Been a long time since I posted, but I’ve been in a creative rut for the longest time – barely anything created, anything written for so long. Words in particular, were difficult and it resulted in a lot of silences. I turned to music a lot during this period, but even then there was something missing, because how can you express what you want to express when you can’t put the words to it? A lot of things happened in the past three months, and I’m finally finally feeling more settled right now, and getting back into a groove, slowly finding my rhythm back.

Played a little in the craft room yesterday, just grabbing whatever colours suit my fancy and blending them together with gesso. Pretty much a mindless process, but I’ve always had a soft spot for colours and how they blend. Then I came across a line while reading and thought of writing out something similar to it. Unfortunately, there was a little accident in the aftermath when I saw it again today:

I had used a dye based marker to write the larger words, and somehow, the ink spread out overnight, causing the words to become all blurry like. I could still read it, but it wasn’t as clear as it was before, because it was supposed to be the focal for the page. But then I thought of turning it into a creative opportunity:

.. and rewrote the words using a white pen. It still show up too much, because it reacts with the dye based black ink, but I can see it clearer now. It also reminds me of balloons for some reason, and I like it a little better than before now. It also seems symbolic, because of what this page is about – to embrace things, say yes, and believe that it’s where you want to be now, even if it didn’t feel like it when it all started.

I’m still coping with new things and essentially a new life, but I really do enjoy where I am right not. Perhaps not the same kind of enjoyment as I would define it before, but it doesn’t diminish what it means to me right now. Even if it was kinda an accident that landed me where I am. Did I wanted it? No, not really – want seems like such a loaded word. But it doesn’t mean that I’m glad for it to happen.

Currently…

A collection of small things I want to share. 

In some stroke of funny luck, my phone died shortly before this post on hands-free photography was set to publish. Which actually means that the post is no longer relevant to me because I’m no longer using an Android phone and have switched to an iPhone instead. I do hope that the post content is still helpful to all Android users though!

I’m not a big big fan of the iPhone, and still isn’t after a few weeks of using it. Maybe I’m the odd one because I don’t think people don’t fall in love with Apple after using their products. That’s not to say I hate it though, but I do already have an iPad, so I really don’t need the same features that my iPad can offer me in my phone. But why did I pick the iPhone then? Well, Samsung note isn’t available (I’m a big big fan of the Note series) and I didn’t like the look of the new Samsung Galaxy. And the other Android phones just can’t seem to compare.

Here’s what I’ve been missing about my new phone:

A built in stylus.
The loss of it has never been so acute when I was out one day and my fingers itched terribly to have a stylus in my hand so I can write/draw something to send to someone. I do have my Adonit Jot Pro that I use with my iPad, but it isn’t really that portable with my phone (or so I feel). At least with my iPad I can just tuck the stylus into my iPad cover bag, but with my iPhone… not so much.

My makeshift tablet input. 
I used to use my phone as a tablet input, through the VirtualTablet app, which is available only for selected devices. Granted, it doesn’t work that perfectly, but at least I have the option to make it work after some fiddling. Now.. I don’t even have the option to do so without paying for it. I tend to use the tablet input for photo editing on the blog, for drawing things like arrows. I did find another way around it, as you can see in the photos from the previous post, but it’s not a direct input from my phone to the computer, so the arrows aren’t as organic as I like them to be.

Here’s what I’m enjoying about my new phone:

The camera.
I still stand by that the iPhone has a pretty decent camera. In fact, all the photos from the last post were taken by my new iPhone, and I find the colours to be a little bit more true when I have HDR activated. Of course, now I’m missing the voice-control function, but so far I haven’t felt the lack of hands when I’m taking photo, so that could mean that the focus of this phone camera is better than my old one. That, or I haven’t taken enough photos yet. Time will tell. But yeah, I think the photos I take now look nicer, so I’m a little bit more inclined to take more photos yay!

Um, I think that’s it actually. Wow, I guess I must be really not used to my phone. I hope this gets better over time as I use more of it!

Jazz up your washi tape

Today I’ve got a quick and simple tip/tutorial for you to jazz up your washi tapes. If you’re like me, you probably have lots of washi tapes in your stash, and can’t help wanting to add even more to your collection. But we all know that each roll of washi tape lasts a long time, and it will take a long time to finish up even one roll. Not to mention that sometimes, we get tired of the designs we own (even though we still really like them) and just want something different for a change.

Well, I’m here to share a way for you to jazz up the washi tapes in your stash so you can get different looks from the same washi tape – and that’s simply by doodling on your washi tapes with a pen or marker! And it sounds simpler than it actually is. Take a look at some of the ones I made:

I first laid down strips of washi tape on sticker sheet backing so I can work on them on a flat surface. I tend to keep sticker backings for projects involving tapes and handmade stickers so it’s easier for me to work on them or store them, and I can shift them out of the way easily. You can of course work on them on any surface that the tape won’t stick permanently to, such as a non-stick crafting mat/sheet, waxed paper or deli paper.

Now onto the designs! You can see from the examples above that there are many designs you can doodle on your washi tapes. You can make dots and any other polygonal shapes you want, or just make a variety of lines, such as stripes, plaid, zigzags, dashes, ‘x’, ‘+’. Really, any kind of mark making will work here. You just want something that will jazz up your washi tape and make it look a little different. Try using different colours for the same design, and you can end up with a washi tape that has a different look to it. Even adding some highlights to the original design will give it a different look, as seen in the sakura washi tape.

You can use just about any pens and markers you have in your arsenal. In the above examples, I used Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic Gold, Staedtler Pigment Marker and Kuretake Zig alcohol markers, but any gel pens, pigment markers or alcohol markers should work. I didn’t show it in the photos, but water-based markers will work as well. You do need to let the gel pens, pigment markers and water-based markers dry for some time though, and be careful not to smudge them while you’re adding your designs, because the surface of washi tape tend to repel them. I let mine dry overnight and they were completely smudge free by the morning!

I hope this blog post has given you some ideas on how to jazz up the washi tape in your stash, and make them go further, and no longer repetitive and boring. Don’t be afraid to try out different designs! If you mess up, well, it’s just a small strip of washi tape and you can always start over again without fear of ruining your whole roll of tape. Hope you have fun with your washi tape (:

Here are the links to the washi tapes that I used in my photos: plain pastel yellow, plain baby blue, purple dots, sakura blossoms. I try to link to Amazon whenever I can because I am an affiliate member of Amazon, and I will receive a small amount if you shop through the links (at no additional costs to you).

Tips on mobile photography: hands-free phototaking

I’ve been taking a lot of photos lately, particularly for the shop and this blog. Most of the time now, I take photos with my phone because it’s just convenient to reach for, and easy to transfer photos to my computer wirelessly (a feature that my trusty camera unfortunately lacks). Sometimes I’ll use my iPad too, when my phone battery is low or when I can’t get the image to focus, but the idea is that using mobile devices is convenient for me.

I’ve encountered a problem when taking photos though. I don’t have steady hands, so I need both hands to steady my phone or iPad when taking photos, which means that I don’t have the extra finger to poke the screen of my device when I am ready to take the photo. That resulted in multiple attempts at shots, as images tend to get blurry the moment my hand leave the side or stretch to touch the capture button.

A while back, I discovered a solution to my problem while fiddling with the settings of the camera app on my phone – I can use voice control to command my phone to take photos, without having to sacrifice one hand I use for steadying! That has saved me lots of time and effort in taking photos, and eliminated a lot of the frustration.

Here’s a quick guide on how to activate voice control on your phone:

  1. Head to settings on your phone’s camera app.
  2. Make sure that your voice control is turned on. (Photos can be clicked on if you want to enlarge.)

    You might also need to head to the settings of your phone to activate the voice control function.
  3. To use voice command when you are taking a photo, just give the command that is indicated on your phone settings. Mine says either “capture”, “shoot”, “smile” or “cheese”. I like to say “shoot”, because it’s just one syllable, and my phone detects it quite well, so try different command to find one that works best for you and your phone.

As a reference, I’m using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which is an Android phone. From what I can gather from the web, all Android phones have the voice command function in-built for the camera. Unfortunately, if you are an iPhone or iPad user, there is no such in-built function available. There are however, apps you can download from the app store that would provide the same function. I’m not particularly impressed with the apps I’ve found though, so I won’t be mentioning any. But you can search the web using search terms like “voice command iPhone camera” and a few apps will pop up that you can try out. I think it’s a shame that Apple devices are lacking this function, which would have been great, because admittedly, I find Apple cameras to be better.

I hope this tip/tutorial has been helpful. If you have any additional suggestions, or know of a good app for Apple devices, do share with us in the comments below (:

Card: Thinking of you

Hi friends, I’m here again today with another card to show you! I made this card in the same setting as the cards I made for the Danipeuss Card Challenge – here’s the link to card 1 and card 2 if you are interested in them. For anyone else who is interested to participate in the card challenge, there’s a new challenge up already, which you can check out here too!

This card started out as an experimentation of sorts, as I play around with supplies that I don’t usually use. I stamped the background with a striped border stamp using a red dye ink for some patterned background. It didn’t ink too well though, for some reason, and I can’t tell if it’s because I’m not using a mounting block or the stamp itself, because the results is the same when I use a pigment ink. Nonetheless, I went with it and took the splotchiness as a design feature as well by spritzing the whole panel with water mixed with perfect pearls. I got this idea from Jennifer McGuire, and it’s basically just filling a spray bottle with a spoonful of perfect pearls. You get a nice light shimmer coverage when you use this, which is really nice to add just a little something special to backgrounds. The light shimmer didn’t show up too well on the camera though, so I can’t show you how that actually looks, but it’s a really pretty and subtle shimmer.

I got some water on the card accidentally, and because I used dye ink on a super absorbent paper, there were some water splotches on the card as well. To cover up the mistake and to make it seem as though it is part of the plan, I dripped more of the perfect pearls water onto the water splotch and then elsewhere on the card. Some splotches are larger than others, and you get a nice pearly splotch if you drip enough on it, as it pushes the dye ink away. It’s also kind of meditative to watch the water push the ink away like a ripple effect. Here’s some close up look of the splotches:

You can see the slightly lighter colouring of the splotches, as well as a more concentrated dose of the shimmer.

The focal point of the card is this cute little ribbon that I’ve tied. While waiting for the background to dry, I came across this video on how to tie a ribbon in less than a minute, so of course I had to try it (and break out my stash of hardly ever used ribbons in the process). It turns out that the ribbon are really embellishment worthy if you have some nice coloured ribbons and the pink ribbon looked really nice when I auditioned it against the background. I glued the ribbon to the panel with some fabric glue, but any wet glue should work fine.

I decided to use the sentiment “Thinking of you”, which I thought would be a nice complement to the ribbon and the sweet colour scheme of the card. I wanted to keep the card basic and the focus on the ribbon, so I opted to write out the sentiment, rather than stamping it on. To echo the wide distance of the striped background, I first drafted out the sentiment on a grid paper, and then used it as a guide when I wrote out the sentiment on kraft cardstock. It’s not perfect placement, because I stumbled a little when I was writing it, but it’s close enough that I don’t scrutinise it – it’s alright to not be perfect in your projects! A tip if you like to hand-write sentiments or words like me: scrap pieces of cardstock are excellent for adding sentiment or word banners! You get to use up all the thinner scraps that don’t get much use otherwise and the thinner width makes it easier for you to align your writing or when trimming it. For the last finishing touches, I went over the entire banner with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, and coated it with a coat of Glossy Accents for an epoxy look.

Really like how that shimmer looks under a layer of Glossy Accents!

This is a really simple card put together with some basic supplies, and of course lots of play and experimentation. I hope you enjoy the various cards that I’ve shown you over the past week! If you made a card inspired by this card, share your card with me in the comments below! I would love to see what you made (:

Danipeuss Kartenchallenge/Card Challenge #043: Card #2

Following up on yesterday’s post, here’s the second card I made for this Danipeuss Card Challenge!

Hallo! Ich bin hier mit meiner zweite Karte für diese Danipeuss Karten Challenge!

Here’s how the card look like:
Hier ist die Karte: 

You will notice that I used the same feather elements as the first card since I already have them out on the table. In this design, I laid the feathers overlapping each other to make it kind of floating/falling down. I didn’t mention this in the last post, but all of the feathers are made using this Crafter’s Workshop stencil and Distress inks in a variety of colours – they make really nice elements after cutting out. The background is just watered down dye inks – I stamped a red dye ink pad onto an acrylic block, add some water and then smoosh it to the paper. It creates this kind of painterly watercolour look, which is really nice while adding some colour to the panel.

In dieser Karten benutzte ich dieselbe Federn wie die erste Karte, weil sie schon am Tisch sind. Die Federn werden mit Distress Stempelkissen aus diese Schablone schabloniert, dann ausgeschneidet. Der Hintergrund wird mit einem roten Stempelkissen und Wasser (ähnlich wie Aquarell) gemacht. 

The sentiment for this card is a mix of stamping and handwriting. I stamped them on a scrap piece of paper first to make sure they would fit and look right before I did it on the panel, because I wanted the sentiment to be on top of the pink of the background, and didn’t want to make any mistake to cover it up. Admittedly, the handwriting part isn’t perfect, but it looked alright so oh well.

Das sentiment wird mit sowohl Alphabet Stempel als auch Handschrift gebaut. Aber zuerst zeichnete ich das Sentiment-Design auf ein Scrappapier, damit alles perfekt an der Kartetafel sind. Das Handschrift fallen nicht so perfekt aus, aber es sieht nicht so schlecht aus, so alles sind gut 😉 

Again, a really simple card, but I put this one together much quicker than the first card because of momentum. The placement probably helps too because the elements filled up quite a lot of space that there isn’t a lot of empty space that I feel like I need to fill up.

Wie die erste Karte, diese Karte ist auch super einfach. Aber diese Karten brauchte weiniger Zeit zu machen, weil ich schon Momentum hatte. 

A look at the details of this card:

And that’s all I have for this Card Challenge! Hope you enjoyed looking at the cards I’ve made. It’s quite a challenge to do a write up in both English and German, but it was a good exercise and a good chance for me to practise my German again. I have one more card I made in the same setting that isn’t related to the challenge, so if you like to see that, check back again in a couple of days!

Und das ist alles für die Kartenchallenge! Ich hoffe, dass Sie für beide Karten Gefallen finden. Mein Deutsch ist nicht perfekt und Schreiben auf Deutsch ist eine Herausforderung aber ich hoffe, dass es nicht so schlecht ist! Ich habe noch eine andere Karte gemacht, doch sie ist nicht für die Challenge. Ich werde in ein paar Tagen die Karte bloggen, wenn Sie sich für das interessieren. Bis nächstes Mal, tschüss!
