Frau Schade (formerly known as Frau von Elm-Dings) was born as an Aquarius in 1970 to a painter and an astrologer & currently lives with her 2nd husband and 3 sighthounds in southern Germany.
After finishing an art oriented upper secondary school she worked as a freelance graphic designer mostly for her brother-in-law’s arthouse cinemas and filmdistribution company. Together with her ex-husband who was developing software for cinemas and distributors she attended filmfestivals, trade shows and set up hard/software and trained staff around the globe for over 12 years.
From 1999 until 2005 she studied architecture – including internships at a carpenter, varnisher, drywall installation company and spending a whole term at an architect’s office, mainly building models for presentations. She gained a (sort of) BA (Vordiplom) but quit just before finishing her MA.
In april 2014 a strange muse – in the form of a bearded dwarf – appeared in Frau von Elm-Dings life, causing her to wake up her sleeping artistic talents once again and also follow in the footsteps of her astrologer mum by musing about this unusual muse and immersing herself in the Richard-Armitage-fandom.
So this blog featured – from june 2015 on under the name ‘frauvonelmdings.com’ – posts about Frau von Elm-Dings various art interests, occasionally including the art of cooking & the art of stargazing … expect crazy & creative posts in (sometimes bad) english and german – all non-stargazing-related posts can now be found in the ‘things from dings’ section 😉
From december 2019 on the focus will be more or less purely on the astrological side – hence the new name ‘planet Schade’.
Here’s to much enlightenment & ‘fun with planets’ in the future!
