Last minute wrappings

Gift wrapping is one of the most fun things in Christmas. I give a lot of selfmade gifts, and I want the package to reflect the same kind of do-it-yourself feeling. Yesterday I found this great tutorial showing how to make a nice little paper bow. It's quite easy and very addictive, I already made a dozen of them. They are gonna make cute finishing touches to my gift wraps.

Have a peaceful and warm Christmas everyone!

How could we survive this season without candles here in the dark North! I'm glad for all the extra light there is available, wether it's real candle or electric christmas light. Although you must be aware of the high cost of electricity these days. That's part of the reason why I have a huge pile of candles to feed my appetite for atmospheric light.

Saucers in the upper picture are flea-market finds. Vintage die-cuts will be hanging in the christmas tree this year.

Sweet couple

I want to share this lovely little music video by Anssi 8000 & Maria Stereo. They are a very cool married couple who make music together. I've totally fell in love with their sound. Hope you like them too. The song is called Bachelorism.
