May you have wonderful Christmas time and may it fill you with peace and joy!

Best Christmas wishes from re:design

(Also, we know we’re late this year but a combination of overwork and cold made these Christmas preparations intense and stressful and something had to give. Still, the wishes are a bit more intense for every hour they are late. XOXO!)

Even though most of us are still a little bit sick, we had an intense weekend, which included cleaning, ornament making and, most importantly, card making. It’s so late in the season and the post office is sure to bring the print version to people some time for Easter but at least we’re doing it (and it’s fun). (Also, we mostly send it online so it will be on time.)

In this little preview of our process you can see us cutting elements of the card out (almost all of us – we don’t fully trust our one-year-old with sharp tools yet). Come back soon for the awesome (hopefully awesome?) finished version.

And how far along are you with your seasonal preparations? It’s a mess, amirite?

May you have a wonderful time during the holiday season,
may you spend it in warmth and joy with the people you love
and may you find a moment to do something silly and fun.

This year again we managed to find time for a hand-made Christmas card which doubles as a Christmas tree decoration. The making-of process pictured below:

Just in time for Christmas cheer we want to share the most themed book on our shelf. (Also, I guess we don’t actually have so many Christmas books and that should be corrected. What are your favorites?) Marguerite’s Christmas is written by India Desjardins and beautifully illustrated by Pascal Blanchet. (We’ve got a Polish edition but you can see or buy English one on Amazon, here.) It combines two emotions which often go together during this holiday season: sense of magic and sense of sadness and also manages to say something true about the old age (thus, becoming much more than just a book for children).

The illustrations are quite artful, using colors, compositions and a certain old-fashioned style to match the atmosphere and the theme of the story. At the same time they’re very modern in their simplicity.

We know few books, particularly picture books, that would capture better the feel of a winter night.

Or the emptiness of an apartment.
