Christmas greetings

These two adorable, little friends like wishing you a very nice Christmastime and many blessings in 2012!

I didn't make christmas cards this year, but two, using WMS Tiny Trees.

For the sewing group I belong to I made a small box with some Merci chocolates in it. Last week I ordered a scor-pal at the shop 'knutsel en zo' (together with a paper pad from 4 heures 37, you will see work with it soon!). The scor-pal is a great help and I like making these boxes. And my sewing friends really appreciate this christmas greeting.

I don't have many Christmas decorations at home. But last Wednesday I saw this frame at the 'Blokker' and I had to buy it. The candle light holders were bought last year and it's a perfect match with the silver birds and red stars!

Christmas will be a bit strange for us this year. My husband has to work in the hospital in a dayshift. But on Christmas Eve we will have the 'family-christmas-service' in our church. And I'm looking forward to the services in our church on Sunday. To me it is important to celebrate Jesus' birth and praise God for His gift to us. On Monday we will join a choir and sing in a prison in Belgium and celebrate Christmas with prisoners. We join the services many times a year and I love doing it. It makes me silent because of my happy life and the contrast with these men. Many of them have had a miserable life till now. I hope they will feel some peace this Christmas.

Maybe I pop in coming week with a card I made today, but I still have to make some pictures. Next week we will have a short holiday in Budapest, Hungary! Looking forward to it! 

On behalf of Saartje and Pien I wish you many happy hours in the coming week!

Thank you for your visit!
