Last year has passed and it went very fast, especially the last month. So much to do at work and home to prepare for Christmas. I didn’t even decorate my home this year. I did however make a lot of Christmas cards, mostly for selling at work where we had some sort of market/shop with stuff I and three other people make and or sell. I don’t think anyone of us sold as much as we hoped for. I did however sell two cards, one bracelet, eight angels and got 4 orders. Not too bad if I may say so myself!
Here are the cards I made and sent to my friends and family. My goal was to use up a few papers from a Christmas long, long ago. Barely made it!
My new favourite technique: coloring the card and stamping in the lighter middle, coloring parts of the stamp with promarkers and or stickles. Just love this stamp!
The Christmas presents all wrapped up and ready for Christmas eve!
All the ingredients for my Christmas candy this year, didn’t use all of it but quite much!
Chocolate dipped marshmallows with sprinkles and sort of Mozartkugeln
Mozartkugeln wrapped in stashed aluminum sheets and a few without, rocky road and my favourite: nougat and marzipan bars covered with chocolate and cut into slices. So easy to make and so damn delicious!
Most of the candy I made was wrapped up and sorted in cellophane bags as giveaways for my family. Another use for my old stashed paper and stickers! The labels which I stapled on the bags. They were very appreciated!
A very special Christmas gift for my oldest brother, I used one of my caldendar presents to color the tag, stamped the text and tied it to a bunch of papers.
My awesome Christmas calendar! I want one next year too!
The stuff I got from the calendar:
