Christmas preparations

One of our favourite Christmas traditions is the Saturday afternoon we spend with a couple of good friends, creating decorations.

I was lazy this year and only produced the one to the right. It looks dirty, but that is because we don´t remove the plastic around the candle until we have carried the lot home.

My husband´s speciality: decorations hanging in frames.

One of my daughter´s pretty creations.

    Det ser rigtig hyggeligt ud 🙂
    Håber du får en rigtig glædelig jul sammen med dine nærmeste – og at der er lidt hårde pakker under træet 😉
