Hi friends! How are you doing?
Me and my son have been making Christmas ornaments over here. And we’d sure love to share.
They are really easy and a lot of.
I think there’s just something really special about making handmade ornaments?
All you need is some air dry clay, a rolling pin, a couple of Christmas cookie cutters, a straw, a few interestingly textured items to give your ornaments some lovely festive patterns, brush and watercolors and some yarn. That’s it.
To make our ornaments, we first rolled our clay into about 3 mm thickness.
We used our cutters to cut out various shapes.
We used a fir tree branch and a rolling print to make a fun imprint.
We also used a piece of burlap ribbon to make a pattern.
To make sure we’ll be able to hang our ornaments, we made holes in them using a straw.
We let the ornaments dry for a day or two. And then we painted them.
Finally we added festive pieces of yarn to be able to hang our ornaments.
Easy and fun.
We are wishing you the best Holiday Season!
We love you,
Petra and her family
I am thrilled to announce that two weeks ago our little Mr.P was born. He is healthy and oh so handsome. Our hearts are overflowing with love and joy.
See you when things get a little settled around here (right now I am in the process of learning how to do just about everything with one hand). 🙂
With lots & lots & lots of love,
P.S.: Any advice on spending the first weeks at home with a new baby will be greatly appreciated…
Look what’s on our Christmas tree!
Smiley faces overload.
Oh, there’s nothing like the joy of creating your own handmade decorations.
Especially if they look and smile back at you!
As usual, I have put together a pattern for those of you who’d like to make these cheerful faces too.
The pattern contains 64 helpful pictures to make the project as easy to follow as possible.
These cuties can be used as Christmas tree ornaments, …
… you can use them as appliques for your craft projects, …
… and I’m sure your kids will love you forever and beyond if you make a happy garland like this one for them.

See you soon!
With lots of love,
This is my favorite book.
The favoritest…est…est of all.
It was absolute love at first sight when I first saw it.
I had instantly gotten amazed by its wonderful, vibrant colors.
And by the wonderful golden edges.
“Varázslatos mesék” means Magical Fairy-tales… this much I know.
And we are speaking Hungarian here, ladies and gentlemen.
Except, I don’t understand any other word inside the book.
Not a SINGLE word.
Because I just don’t speak Hungarian.
When I look at this page I see nothing… there’s no meaning to me at all.
… but this… this makes SO much meaning – the wonderful pictures and illustrations – it’s unbelievable.
The whole book is flooded with the loveliest pictures I have ever seen.
Some are really funny.
Some are dramatic.
Do you know this smart guy?
You surely do.
What a cute little girl.
And what a cute little puppy.
These lovely animals seem to be living in sweet and perfect harmony over there.
What a bliss.
I love these wonderful details – there’s an abundance of them in the book.
Look – this is me… chubby and knitting.
Yay – me again, baking – that’s my thing.
I love to thumb through this book and indulge in its wonderful illustrations.
A big THANK YOU to all the people who have put this perfect piece of art together.
(P.S.: Have you noticed?… “Illustrations: Magda”.
Who are you Magda?… Where are you?… I want to be your friend.)
