International Christmas Swap 2011

I did join the International Christmas Swap from organized by Catarina from /http://leminisdicockerina.blogspot.com/
This is what Cristina Diego made for me, a wonderful decorated Christmas tree with real working light! and that's not all, she also made a lovely bowl full of Christmas sweets, abunch of flowers and she also included some nice old fashioned mode pictures (not on the photo). I feel so spoiled, thank you Cristina. I love it!
Because my photo is coming out blurry all the time, i don't know why, i borrowed Cristina's photo.
So you girls and some guys can see how much Cristina spoiled me.
This is what i made for Kaisa, i had so much fun making it.

I also received by mail(i know a blurry photo again)this crocheted wreath made by Carmen,
i joined her give-away and she made some extra prizes, so i was very lucky.

If you want some more eye-candy, klick on the colored names of this lovely ladies and you have a link to there blogs.
Hope you all did have a nice Christmas, mine was wonderfull and as you can see i was very spoiled.

My Christmas roombox, your Christmas and more

This is a roombox i made years ago but i still love it, even my skills wore not that good back then it really have a cosy Christmas feeling.
The tree is made from pipe-cleeners and the lamps from a Bic pen with buttons and beads, the woodburner is made from old earrings and the cards are all having names and wishes from my family members.

 I hope you all did have a lovely Christmas.
I did have a lovely but very busy time.
My family was at my place and i made luch and dinner for 9 people.

At Christmas eve i opened the Swap gift and the extra give-away prize i won, oh they are so lovely and i am so spoiled but more about that tomorrow. I first have to make better pictures of those, the pictures i made of my gifts are to blurry to publish.

Day 13 of the hobby corners of my mum and me

We worked the whole evening on just a (not working) bareau lamp and a pair of high heels.
I also painted the thing for holding pens etc. 
It was made by little pieces of straw glued together, seen in on my earlier posts.

Nice weekend
don't forget my Give-Away
