It really is the simple things in life that make us smile. Check out this bunny. Sienna dressed her with the Calico Critters toilet seat covers.

Christmas is almost here. So exciting! I can't wait to see Sienna's face when she opens up her main present: a keyboard. She has a little kids' one that she loves to play (she's learned to play songs on her own). The one she's getting is full sized and makes all sorts of sounds, not just piano sounds. She's going to be in heaven, i tell ya. Love it when you can find the perfect gift for someone. To top it all off: the keyboard has earphones. I'm pretty happy about that. Not always fun listening to kids practise. :) 

I finally bought a new wallet. My old one was over 20 years old! Crazy, isn't it? I just never seemed to find a wallet I liked. I've been looking for a new one for years.

Now it's time to take a break from blogging and enjoy the magic of Christmas with my family.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I made this card for Sienna's teacher. :)

...and I'm using my kirigami snowflakes to decorate Christmas gifts.

You might want to show this to your kiddos. Super cute!

Gotta love Christmas. Piparitkin on jo paistettu.

{sunrises and Christmas art}

Some gorgeous sunrises we've seen lately.

Sienna started making her own nativity.

Chocolate boxes wrapped as snowmen. These large ones are for Sienna's teachers. I think we'll make small ones for her class mates.

Here's a link to beautiful Bible videos of Jesus' life. Just in time for Christmas.

{ideas for home}

Sure love picture groupings like these.

Great ideas for us who love felines.

I would love one of these! Fresh stuff all year long.

Thinking of lazy summer days on the porch swing.

Even cheap frames look good when grouped together.

Check out some more ideas I've collected here.

{19 sleeps!}

It's starting to feel Christmasy in our house.

I'm slowly changing red/green into silver/white/metallic colors. One day we'll have a white Christmas tree (with lights already in the tree). Until then: mix and match. So be it. :)
Only 19 more sleeps...!

Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää kaikille Suomalaisille! Y
