Since the beginning of December, and particularly since yesterday, St. Nicholas’ Day, we’re in a Christmas preparations mode. Well, as much as deadlines permit. It’s mostly a lot of cleaning but we also try to make handmade decorations with our kids and, to make it at least a little bit design-oriented, we have set a little challenge for ourselves. (This is the first challenge of this kind we’ve ever tried.) Since December 1st we’ve been posting one small Christmas image in our Instagram stories and we’re planning to keep it up till Christmas Eve. (Above: a scrap paper Santa for St. Nicholas’ Day; this was really a spontaneous collage that gave us the idea.)
“Day 2” image.
Yes, we baked ginger cookies yesterday and they are delicious, thanks to our friend Z’s recipe. We struggled a lot before with inferior recipes.
This is a rare case of unretouched photo of paper craft that we post so yeah, the edges are rarely sharp at this stage.
Come take a look (and say hi) if you’re interested, all images past and future to be seen here.
