A Christmas card for all of you

imgI haven't sent out cards in years and I don't mind at all. I get a few, but less and less each year. Reciprocation plays a big role in the Christmas-card-business ;)

However, I wanted to post a digital one, one I made years and years ago (actually had them printed too, last time I sent out real cards). So there you go. My Christmas-card to the world, very personal ;)

img In my search for it I found another image I had forgotten all about, but did not want to leave out.

Happy stuffing! :)

Christmas - back in the day.

imgFrom my earliest Christmases I don't remember much. I know we had a tree, I know this one time my sister and I both got the same doll. She got the yellow one, I got the pink one. I still have it, in a box though. In the years that followed we always had some sort of tree, and decorating it would result in a big mess cause we'd forget to put the lights in first, or they wouldn't work and we forgot to check. We'd also have hot chocolate with it. As a tradition, we (the kids) got a plate full of candy and snacks, a German tradition I think. We'd exchange the candy we didn't like and it had to last the entire Christmas-break. We could eat it all in one day, but that would mean no candy for the rest of the time. Excellent tradition! :-)

One thing I also remember fondly: getting knitted jumpers my mom made in the weeks before. She'd sometimes let us pick the colour, but no more than that. This month I've thought a lot about starting to knit (usually I crochet). Digging through my harddrive I found this little drawing I made years ago, about knitting. I stil like it. :-) Considering patching it up a bit though.
