Funkytime Magazine ♥ Valentine’s Issue

February 6, 2012 |  by  |  Blog, DIY, Holidays, Online Mag, Valentine's Day

Hi everyone,
I’m excited to present you the first issue of Funkytime Magazine. It’s a ♥Valentine’s issue♥ and packed with cute DIY projects and even a freebie, which you can download!

About 2 weeks ago the thought of making a Valentine’s issue got kind of stuck in my mind. I guess I really need the pressure, lol. It was a lot of work and very little time. We were also waiting on our furniture to finally arrive from Canada. What a timing, it did arrive- 4 days ago!

So you can imagine me sitting in our huge apartment without furniture (exactly one chair and one little desk) with my little laptop and my camera, making my little magazine for 1 1/2 weeks.

Now the rest of the time I had big moving boxes stacked up next to me, furniture everywhere, 2 kiddos and a hubby who thankfully made everything go smoothly!

I am literally ‘Reif fuer die Insel’ ! (You can see the translation on the 2nd page of the magazine)

Again a big thank you to all, who participated, you guys ROCK!♥

Make sure you enter the paper straw giveaway!

Xoxo, Sibylle

    • thank you Lynn! yes, we lived in Quebec before, I hated it, lol. My husband lived in Vancouver before and loved it, anybody there told him “make sure you say your are from France, not from Quebec!” Nobody seems to like the Quebecois, haha. Well, glad i am out of there;-) Just miss my friends now (which are also not from there;-) ).

  20. Sibylle,

  25. Liebe Sibylle,
    ich habe eben ganz in Ruhe in deinem herrlichen E-book geblättert und bin ganz begeistert von den tollen Ideen und Fotos. Wahnsinn, dass du “nebenbei” auch noch umgezogen bist.

    Liebe Grüße, Nadine

  26. So liebe Sibylle,

    jetzt hab ich’s endlich auch gelesen ;-) (der ipad reader kann’s leider nicht darstellen und am Rechner arbeite ich eher selten ;-)). Super klasse, ein echtes Kompliment, da warst Du wirklich fleissig! Wie immer tolle Ideen, super schön präsentiert, darum schau’ ich immer wieder gerne bei Dir rein ;-). Ich freu’ mich schon auf die nächste Ausgabe. Ganz liebe Grüße – maks :-)

    • Danke Maks! Ja auf’m iPad gehts nicht:-( Aber die naechste Ausgabe sollte auf dem iPad lesbar sein (laut issuu). Das waere dann Ostern! (Auch wieder super stressig, da da lauter Geburstage in der family sind und ich Besuch aus DE bekomme).

  27. ohgoodgolly I’m just speechless…your magazine is glowlingly gorgeous and brilliantly designed! I used to do this sort of thing for a living so I know how much work goes into it and oh how very talented you are at it! Thank you so much for sharing it…I will definitely share this link with my friends. :)
    Arrived via Today’s Creative Blog…cheers!
