DIY Fey Christmas Presents for the Adventurous Gourmet

Hey, how are you holding up in the mad rush of the pre-Christmas days?

We are flying out of Doha on Friday but the suitcases aren’t packed yet. Too much ginger bread house making events (every child has their own event at school because their age gap is so big), last Jiu Jitsu training before the Xmas break, Christmas concert for our young piano player …

While looking at last minute gifts, I just came across a product from a Dawanda-Shop that I thought you guys might like. The shop’s name is Erbstuecke which means “heirloom pieces” in German.

They sell a set with 6 vials with a dry dip base and 6 vials of olive oil. Each vial contains only 10 g (dip) or 20 ml (oil), so if you made your own,  you’d have a enough for several gifts from one mammoth fruit-veggie drying session.

How do these dips work?

The Italian way to sample some nice fresh bread is: pour a very good olive oil into a small bowl or plate. Drop a few drops of a mild, good Aceto Balsamico vinegar into that, add a few sprinkles of ground sea salt (or another salt of your choice), stir with a piece of bread and enjoy.

For dried dips like this, you need olive oil as a base.

You can either dip bread in olive oil and then dunk it into the dip (which works but isn’t very pretty), or you dip the bread, then scatter a tiny bit of the dip powder over the bread. We use this kind of stuff the way Dukkah powder is used in the Middle East: you add a little bit of the powder to a bit of olive oil, stir it in well and then let it sit for a bit before you scoop it up with bread or use a teaspoon to transfer it to your bread.

What’s in a dip?

Erbstücke, the Dawanda Shop, combined some interesting stuff for their dips.

They say that their dips are made from dried and ground fruit and vegetables with NO ADDED ANYTHING. (Some of the dips have sugar and salt.)

I imagine if elves do the bread-and-dip thing, they’ll use exotic mixes like these for the dip. :-)

The 6 tastes at Erbstuecke are:

  • Carrot-Pineapple: carrot, pineapple, coconut, ginger, salt
  • Red beet-Pear: red beet, pear, orange peel, vanilla, salt
  • Red bell pepper-Mango: red bell pepper, mango, almonds, oregano, chili powder, sugar, salt
  • Pomegranate: pomegranate seeds, lemon peel, cardamom, cumin, cinnemon, cane sugar, pepper
  • Spinach-Ginger: spinach, garlic, ginger, vanilla, salt, pepper
  • Eggplant-Sesame: eggplant, white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, salt, garlic

Since Dawanda is Germany’s answer to Etsy, Erbstuecke might not ship abroad, but if you have a dehydrator — or some time, patience and an oven– you can make these as Christmas presents at home.

All you need is dehydrator/oven, good quality fruit and veggies, and some nice containers with a stopper, like vials. We have also used the small jam glasses you get in hotels to the same effect. Sometimes you can buy a tray with 10 or 12 of the small glasses at the supermarket. Keep them when the jam is gone – they make lovely packaging for edible Christmas presents.

Dry the fruit/veggies in a dehydrator according to your machine’s settings. If fruit is very wet, use silicone inlays or baking paper that you poke holes into for circulation.

In the oven, heat it up to 330 degrees F / 170 degrees C, leave the door a bit open and stir fruit/veggies every 30 minutes. The slower you dry, the better the taste, but unless you have a dehydrator, you might go for higher temperature and be done in 6 to 8 hours.

Let the finished dried fruit / veggies rest for a day, then grind them in a food processor. Then play around, mixing and matching. :-)

I hope you enjoy — concoct something that would make Harcos, the elf, proud. ;-)

If you’re wondering who Harcos is: He plays a big part in my 2012 Christmas novel “Three Days of Christmas”. At the moment, I took it down from Amazon because I’ve been trying to make it permafree, without success. You can find it on Smashwords and iBooks.

Does he kiss with elven, Elfish or Elfin skill?

“Shush.” Mattis pressed a finger to my lips. “I was frightened for you.” Shielding me from view, he pulled me into his arms and claimed my mouth in a kiss. It was fierce, desperate, as if he was drowning out the world. I wrapped my arms around his neck. My arm grazed the fresh wound on his cheek and Mattis gasped with pain.

So, about that skilled kisser. Does he speak Elfish? Or Elvish?

Are his looks Elfin or Elfish, or elven?

Elfish

When I was writing Hedge Games, I chose to use “Elfish” for everything: the language, the adjective, the people themselves. The same way I’d use Spanish: he’s Spanish, he speaks Spanish, the Spanish swords are of excellent quality.

I love the word “elven” and that the language of elves has its own name, Elvish, but I wasn’t sure if using that gets the LOTR fans up in arms when used in another world.

The editor of Hedge Games concurred, and so Elfish it was.

Elfin

Now the editor of Poison Patch corrected many instances of Elfish to “Elfin”.

To my ears, Elfin sounds like a human who has Elfish/elven qualities, especially a child. It probably got that way because it’s used outside of Fantasy literature to describe someone, usually a girl or a child, with fey qualities.

So I spent the morning researching Elfin, Elfish, elven, and found interesting theories on when to use which.

Elven

My editor would point out that Wikipedia and Google finds are not a trustworthy source, especially when it comes to spelling. ;-) If you ignore that, an interesting theory from two different grammar forums was this:

  • if you write in the tradition of Tolkien, D & D and other computer games/roleplaying systems who follow in that tradition, it’s elves with a v and the adjective is elven. The language is Elvish.
  • if you write in a remotely Walt Disney kind of style or world—one poster called it “Tinkerbelly” :-)—the plural is elfs (doesn’t have to be, though) and the adjective is Elfish. The elfs in that tradition are usually based on Tinkerbell-kind of fairies or Christmas elfs which usually don’t have their own language.

One argument that nailed it for me (revisions, here we go!) was the comparison to thieves. Thief / elf, plural thieves / elves. The old noun based on that wasn’t theft but thievery. The adjective is thieving.

So elf / elves / elven / Elvish makes a lot of sense, even if you had never heard of Tolkien. I’ll change it in Hedge Games and Poison Patch. But let’s get back to the more important things ;-)

Not wanting to ask Mattis for assistance, I used elven sorcery on his glamor. Elven magic worked with intent instead of sigils, so I scrunched up my face in concentration and thought with as much force as I could, Put something decent on me.

The dress flared green for a moment then disappeared. Which left me, once more, buck naked. Ooops.

“Okay, you win,” Mattis drawled by my ear, “I prefer your spell.”

Straight from Faerie: Sea-green jasper

I just came across this heart made from sea-green jasper on Etsy (in the Laveo Beads-shop) and wanted to share with you.

Look at this beauty! Looks like it beamed straight over from Faerie, doesn’t it?

It’s drilled with a hole so I can just (barely) keep myself from buying it. (I like whole stones that I just have lying around the house); but maybe one of you can use it in making stunning jewelry. :-)

Dancing Mini-Groot — make your own from polymer clay

I’ve recently seen “Guardians of the Galaxy”. I went with no expectations, dreading that a movie followed in the Avengers’ footsteps which cast a RACCOON as one of the characters. I hoped I’d just be gently let down, if not turned off completely.

The exact opposite happened: My husband and I had a really great time and both loved the movie. Even the raccoon. Maybe especially the raccoon, for entirely writerly reasons.

Of course I also loved Groot. Since I don’t have the space or tons of polymer clay needed to build a “big” Groot, I googled “mini groot polymer clay” with my kids.

What I found blew my kids away (who haven’t seen the movie).

Take a look at the video below and then let’s say it together: 
Aaaaaaaawwwww, so cute! :-)

It’s well-done (I thought, but I’m not a polymer clay expert) polymer clay tutorial from NerdEcrafter for a dancing Mini-Groot 
Okay, he doesn’t really dance, no electricity/no moveable joints. But he looks like he could, any second now! :-D  

Escape to Faerie with these photos … or into your dreams

I’m in love ;-)

Look at the photos in this Flickr photostream. In case Rosie Ann’s style changes, I captured a screenshot.
I find the dystopian photos also intriguing, but my favorites are the ones that remind me of Faerie.

Go and have a look at Rosie Anne’s page … to dream.

Using your BBQ to indulge your spiritual side

Playing with fire is one of the best ways (especially for parents*) to cleanse the mind after a stressful day.

Fire on its own is already a great way to literally burn away stress: the warmth, the concentration on lighting the fire/coals. You can add to that effect by tossing herbs on the fire/coals — either instead of regular BBQ or after you’re done with the food.

Different spices/herbs/resins have different properties.

* Why is this a good idea for parents?

Fire is one of the few areas that are off-limits for kids. When you tinker with a BBQ or a fireplace, they need to keep their distance. Which instantly promotes that feeling of “I’m finally doing something grown-up here” after a summer-day spent running after toddlers. ;-) And way better for the figure than that other “I’m a grown-up”-action, drinking a glass of wine.

Ingredients for cleansing smoke

What you need you probably already have in the kitchen.

How about tossing on

  • a stick of cinnamon bark
  • rosemary, peppermint or thyme sprigs
  • dried sage leaves
  • dried juniper berries
  • dried camomile blossoms (the kind you can buy for tea)

You can also use mixes and resins on the BBQ which are especially sold to be used for incense burning, e.g.

  • myrrh
  • a mix of sweetgrass/juniper/white sage
  • pine resin

All of these have been used for ages in burning incense, each chosen for their different properties.

  •  Sage (on its own or in mixes) is ideal for promoting a clear head and relaxation
  • Cinnamon is perfect when you’re feeling hassled – no wonder we scarf down cinnamon rolls when we’re feeling stressed ;-)
  • Thyme helps fight feelings of fear
  • Pine resin when you’re feeling exhausted and can’t find the energy to do anything.
  • Peppermint when you’re feeling restless.
  • Camomile induces a feeling of relaxation and release.

If thinking about any deeper effects feels too esoteric for you, just enjoy the scents. :-)

How to

Simply toss a sprig/ pinch of one or two ingredients on the hot coals at a time. Don’t mix too many or you’ll run for cover ;-)

In case you’re wondering: This blogpost came about while researching relaxation techniques for my new book “Mama macht mal Pause!” (“Mom’s taking a break”). Since the book is in German, I thought I’d share some of it with you over the next weeks. :-)

Knights without shirts and the gallant undead – fantasy roleplay

Tomorrow, my son and I embark on our second excursion into another era. Another world, to be exact. We’ll join the more than 8,000 others who drive/fly/hike to a little village in the middle of nowhere, in Northern Germany. Any other day, all you can do here is watch grazing cattle and horses and buy the famous local blueberries.

In August each year, the area is invaded by Vikings, knights, undead, elves (light and dark), bands of orcs, goblins, dwarves, vampires, magicians, witches, Steampunks, mercenaries … A lot of them bring their children when they meet here to create another time and place. A fantasy-medieval world where there’s no electricity (the washing-area is thankfully exempt from that rule), but as long as it’s vaguely medieval, anything goes.

conquest_start_2014_brida_anderson

finally, the countdown is in hours, not days, weeks, months

LARP, supersized

Conquest is a huge European LARP-event. As of last year, it’s said to be the world’s largest LARP event with 8,500 participants in 2013.

For the non-LARPies: You live for five days without electricity in tents, develop stories in roleplay and attempt to be as fantasy-medieval as possible. The stories flow quite smoothly because the underlying rule is: “You can do what you can depict.” So if you pour enough ideas and heartblood into your character’s actions, chances are good that what you play becomes “reality” of the game.

Fodder for the imagination

Last year was my first Conquest and I thrived on the impressions. I don’t think there’s anything not to love if you’re a writer (or reader) of fantasy stories.

Well, maybe there is, depends on your attitude. I don’t mind if people aren’t 100 % authentic or talented — my imagination happily supplies the missing percents to make it feel absolutely real to me.

I actually also love the out-time (real) moments of it that some people find jarring. Like cueing in the provisions tent with elves at your front and undead warriors in your back, shopping for loo paper together. ;-) Or running into knights at the break of dawn who hurry to the washing houses shirtless, with towels around their necks, sword in one hand and orderly toiletry case in the other …

And when there’s no modern element to temper the effect … Man, then LARP is breathtaking.

I still remember vividly joining the defenders of our village on the 2nd day of Conquest last year. I was utterly untrained (still am), and kept in the back. Then in a mere minute, every trained fighter (men as well as women) had been mowed down at the gate. You find yourself one of the last three standing, all women, all first-timers with a weapon, facing down an army of undead warriors, all kitted out in grisly attire, looking like giants and yelling for blood. (These guys are non-player-characters. They are trained and styled to look like the real thing and to supply the suspense.)

Players are careful when fighting, even in massive battles, but when you’re not seeing this on TV but with your own eyes –  especially if your eyes happen to be at 1,60 meters height because you’re small ;-) – the pure adrenaline is mind-boggling. It’s chilling to the bone to see fifty or more masked warriors come running to your gate, skulls dangling from thick shoulder pads, fake blood spattering their clothes. And you know it’s up to you. You can’t click off the TV or lay aside the book. You stand and you have to do something – but what you do, is entirely up to you.

A lesson in self-efficacy.

That’s exactly why LARP is great and why LARP is even taught at school in Denmark: There’s a moment when you realize that what YOU do, the solution YOU come up with, is as viable as any other and that it shapes the reality around you. The same is true in “real” life, but we are often blind to the fact.

It’s not all battles, though

What I loved about Conquest last year was the mix of high intensity on one side – roleplay and battles. And slow-motion life on the other side.  Slow-motion in a good way. In the group I play with, we all don’t wear watches. From one day to the next, we guess time by the sun. Tasks that take a few minutes in the “real” world, now fill hours. We have to light a fire each morning before we can even think of boiling water for coffee. The evening before, we lined up at the “well” to fetch said water, people-watching, exchanging gossip on the storylines. Eating lunch in the sand outside the pirate tavern, taking a picturesque detour through the forest back to the camp … only to run into a band of blood-thirsty mercenaries. Back it is to high adrenaline.

If I have to pick a fav moment, I’d say the evenings. Somewhere, there’s someone singing, playing a guitar, the children are soundly sleeping after their evening mock-fights on the “village” green around the tents. The low chatter of the adults and the far-away music are the only sounds. Overhead the stars are so clear and there are no lights for miles except campfires and candles … Happy goosebumps.

So, if you’re cueing in a LARP-food tent this summer: The woman behind you sketching your outfit with her feathered quill into a leather-bound notebook might be me. ;-)

Blog Hop: Women Writing

Leanne Chapman from Claim Your Treasure asked me to participate in a Blog Hop that features new women writers and celebrates why we are writing. The torch is passed on every week and I feel honored that I can take part.

((I recently moved this blog and the images got shot in the process. Currently working to replace them all.))

I published my first fantasy novel last winter (“Hedge Games”) in a leap of faith, after years of hiding behind my non-fiction writing. The same change takes place in my blogging. I’ve blogged for years about mom-topics, now I am starting to blog about fantasy/fae-topics for my readers.

How the Blog Hop Works

Write a description of yourself as a writer and answer the 3 questions below. Then invite 2-3 other women writers/bloggers to participate.

 

 

A description of me as a writer

Even as a kid, I was already fascinated by fantasy and adventure stories. The stories that capture me most are those that create a breathing, real world and then run with it. I don’t much mind whether that’s paranormal/Urban/elfpunk/Steampunk/pirates … Just give me a world I can jump into along with the characters; make me believe, make me care. Make me smile about dialogue and funny moments. Make me fret by letting the character walk through darkness. Oh, and give me a loveplot. ;-)
That’s what I love to read – and that what I’m striving for in my fiction.
If I had to name common themes, it’d be: Finding magic in the everyday life that surrounds us. Finding out you’re special and there’s a place / a chosen family where you belong after all.

What am I working on/writing?

When our move abroad (to the Middle East) and my kids give me time enough to write, I’m working on the sequel to HEDGE GAMES. Or I’d love to be writing that. Mostly, I’ve been working on non-fiction these past months.

... when all I want to do is return to the forest for book 2 ... :-)

… when all I want to do is return to the forest for book 2 … :-)

 

I just finished a book with selfcare-tips for moms, it will come out in September. Mid-august is the deadline for my next book, my first “Aufsteller”. What do you call these books in English? A spiral bound book that you can prop upright. One side of the displayed page shows a beautiful photo and quote or affirmation. The back of the page gives a weekly instruction. I love these books when they’re nicely done and I’ve always wanted to create a book like that. So I felt very honored and happy when I was asked by Südwest publishing house to create one on the topic of “Finding Peace inside Me”.

I also experiment with different topics for blogging. It’s easiest for me to blog how-to – giving instructions, DIY topics, tips. But I want to branch out from that and share more about fae/fantasy related stuff. I’m collecting shops with elfwear, beautiful fantasy Pinterest boards, … to share on my blog. I’ll also talk more about the backstory to my elfish characters, because that’s what most questions I got from readers were about.

How does my work differ from other writers in my genre?

Since I aim to write what I’d love to read, I’m not really trying to be different from other writers in my genre. :-) But there are, of course, a lot of different styles in Urban / Paranormal Fantasy.

You’ll love what I write if you enjoy fantasy stories with romantic elements that have darkness where necessary, without ever degrading into torture porn (for lack of a different word, I use it here to encompass all sorts of very dark stuff that you can come across in fae books).
Having said that, I think there should be real danger and real struggle and the loveplot shouldn’t be an end in itself but a side product of two interesting characters meeting and battling toward their goals.

One difference could be that I find old legends, especially German ones, about elves and fae folk very fascinating and have read a lot about them. So my elves might be a tad more Germanic / central European than the ones from authors who come from an Anglo-Saxon background.
We’ve travelled in areas in Germany where the hills are considered dragons sleeping, every second village has a name with the old Germanic word for “elf” in it and local people still warn you about the lakes because the White Lady could grab any children and pull them under, replacing them with a changeling. (That this is a warping of Mother Goddess cults in the same areas could be a topic for another time, hm?) I take all these stories and add my own spin and my own ideas.

Why do I write what I do?

We have a right to — and a need for — fairytales for grown-ups. I can’t thrive if not at least my reading material brings a touch of magic. The magic that adds sparks to our lives can come from actual conjuring, sexy elves, bare-chested highlanders or watching struggling families reconcile and find their Happy-Ever-After in contemporary books.

Next Week’s Blog Hopper

… is Eilish Bouchier of http://eilishbouchier.com. Until her Women Writer’s blogpost is up, read “I do yoga to do life” from her instead. Highly recommended.

Elf-Fashion for the summer

They are here, the days of the Summer Solstice, of lying in the grass, listening to the whispering trees and murmuring brooks nearby …

To take this summery feeling back into town with you, there’s thankfully more and more “elf-fashion” around. As one of the elf-fashion creators, Babacool, calls it “fairytale clothes for reality”.

Speaking of: The guys from Babacool just sent out their summer catalogue. I have only one shirt from them so far, it’s all I could afford (maybe it’s because they’re based in Switzerland?). But seeing the photos for their newest summer elf-fashion makes me dream:

 

Babacool Summer 2014 Elf Fashion

If you get the chance, you should check out their bricks-and-mortar store in Solothurn, Switzerland (Löwengasse 4), it’s where, according to them,

… fairy-tale beings and far-east ambience embrace. […]. Even if you’re not looking for Alaadin pants, goblin jackets or elf dresses, you’ll find all kinds of wonderful things in the store, for example fluorescent jewelry, Asian carvings, airbrushed wall hangings.

While you check out that store, I’ll follow coincidence somewhere else:

I ordered some outfits via ebay to wear to a summer LARP festival. I had them sent to my parents-in-law who live in a small town in the middle of Germany. In the middle of nowhere, basically. If you want to go shopping, you drive about one hour to the next biggest town.

The ebay seller contacted me and told me to come by their shop before I left for the summer LARP, to make sure the stuff fit. Turns out,  they not only have an online-business but a real store for LARP and fantasy/elf wear – and it’s in a village next to the town where my in-laws live!

I never knew while visiting them. :-) If you’re driving by: the shop name is Ansuma Magica; they’re at Vierbacher Str. 46, 37290 Germerode/ Meißner. Opening hours depend on when you want to go: drop them an email or give them a call to arrange a visit.

I’m compiling more elf-wear addresses for you over the summer. If you know of a shop that you like, drop me a message or a tweet and I’ll include it.

My favorite is (what a surprise ;-) “I need coffee”.

The little elf/fairy just looks so blissed out that she finally got her coffee.
