Operation Christmas tree

 The three of us went together to buy the Christmas tree and we all know how we want it, but it is not necessarily the same, one want a very very big and vide tree, one want a long but thin tree and the third, well somewhere there in between. So it took a few moments and many trees later to find one and the poor salesman used all his patience on us. But off we go with the one.

Inside the house and ready to be dressed. 
Little by little the jingle bells are hanging,

Sunna  enjoying the moments of decorations, 
playing old Christmas songs from Iceland.

 Christmas decorations from New York and Stockholm.
I love :)

I hope you all had a merry merry Christmas

A creative evening


So much fun, few friends gathered to create something nice for Christmas, wreaths for the front door or small cute decorations. Listening to Christmas songs and sing along.

Fill a gingerbread form with moss and decorate it with small berries and a ribbon, nice little decoration to give away or hang in the window.   

Happy creativity everyone

Christmas Cards

These are last years Christmas Cards, I am still work on this year cards, I will put them on the blog later, when everybody has gotten theirs. I make about 60 cards every Christmas to send to relatives and friends all around the world. I think that is a great way to stay in contact with people that have crossed your path on your journey of live. I always have a theme but no two cards are exactly the same.

Happy card making

Christmas at Macy´s

We where in New York the other week, yah the same week as Sandy. So our trip was not quit as we had hoped for. Everything was closed and a big part of Manhattan was with out electricity, but we where lucky and we had light at our place. But on our last day Macy´s was open and we had few hours to do some shopping and I could not believe my eyes when we came to the top floor, the Christmas department, it was just amazing for a Christmas crazy person like my self,  but I got only 10 minutes there, not enough time, not enough I promise you. But Sunna and I found a few Christmas decorations for our tree, we here so happy and we can’t wait until we can hang them in our Christmas tree.

Jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way
