Welcome to my little world.

Hello there!

I’m so glad you found your way to my little project that is this blog.
tinkerabout.com is something born out a lot of passion, an outburst of bottled-up creative energy and a hint of frustration.

I started my “adult life” by applying for a biochemistry major in Berlin. I got accepted, started studying – and realized quite quickly – this is not what I want to do.
After changing to nutrition sciences and studying for a few month – I became sick.
My life changed quite drastically – everything that wasn’t worth a thought before, like
– walking to the subway station
– going grocery shopping
– walking stairs
suddenly became a huge problem.
My muscles stopped to work like normal muscles and became hyperexcitable instead.
This leads to me not being able to relax my muscles properly, which leads to stiffness, cramps and periodic paralysis.
Probably inevitable, I fell into a life crisis.
I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, what my body allowed me to do and how I would cope with everything.
For month on end – I didn’t do anything. I kinda just accepted my fate – didn’t go out anymore, wasting my days.
As you might have guessed by now – I wasn’t very happy during this time.

“Why don’t you do something creative?”

A kind of obvious question and something that Alex, my boyfriend of four years, had asked me several times before.
But this time it stuck with me. 
I started to ask myself: “Why don’t I do something creative?”
It would give me the permission to do something I am really passionate about; it would be something that my little, broken body would be able to do and: it most certainly would make me happy.

Long story short: here I am.

This blog is a weird mix of an inborn passion for crafting, a very rare genetic disease and a very obvious question someone had asked me that changed everything.
I hope you will enjoy it.

With love,
