Så nu ville jeg prøve at lave en engangs-dekoration, som jeg ikke behøver at have dårlig samvittighed over at afhænde, når julen er ovre, og som ikke tager ekstra plads op i julekassen.
Så det gjorde jeg. Ikke helt perfekt, men absolut personligt :-) og jeg er superglad for den. Den fik meget ros i går, da jeg havde inviteret favorit-familien og min 'låne-datter' og hendes kæreste til middag.
Vi hyggede os med at lave piberenser-nisser, som var en aktivitet, der gik rent hjem hos den 3½ årige favorit-storebror.
Den er solgt - This is sold
Her er starten - This is the start
Rodet - Messy
Det begynder at ligne noget - Starting to look like something
Slutresultatet, som lige skal korrigeres lidt - Det er ikke let at tæmme naturen - heldigvis
The end result, which need a bit of correction - It is not easy to tame Nature - fortunately
Yesterday I sold my designer advent candle holder in my process of making my home more me and less design magazine-ish. No criticism of anyone, who loves these things, but as said before I felt, that my home had become more and more impersonal.
So now I wanted to make a decoration, which I didn't have to feel bad about disposing after Christmas, and which will not take up space in my Christmas box.
So I did. Not quite perfect, but absolutely personal :-) and I am quite content with it. It got the thumbs up yesterday, when I had invited the favorite family and my 'daughter' (a beautiful girl, who is the daughter of my best friends) and her boyfriend.
Before dinner we had a good time making pipe cleaner gnomes, which was an activity the 3½ year old favorite person just loved. (probably needs an explanation, but I will show you later - he put everything in a bag and brought it home!).
