merry christmas

Christmas gift ideas & suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

thank you Maromeria!

I could not be more thrilled today for Roxana Delgado's mention of Fournier on Pirouette as one of the brands that she believes brings magic and nostalgia to us. Roxana is the founder of the wonderful store Maromeria.
Thank you so much!!! Check out the interview here!

We finally managed to bake and decorate Christmas cookies yesterday. Sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies were on top of the list. We will probably make other kind on Friday... other kind that do not need royal icing.

the advent calendars

{the making of our advent calendar}

First there were kraft paper mini bags, watercolor paper, a snowflake paper punch, red alpaca yarn, stamps & red ink... 

and of course, surprises!

Then there were fifty bags filled with surprises (25 for each of my kids), an ivory wooden pole, and a stair handrail.

Happy Weekend everyone!!
