December and January were again so busy with work and preparations for my course that I hardly had time for being creative, let alone write about it.
I can’t really take credit for this. I’d seen this DIY jewelry at craft fairs a couple of times before and finally thought I’d give it a try. I chose the parts and how to combine them, but I’m not made for this fiddly work, so my boyfriend heroically jumped in and did it for me real quick.
They look really nice, but I’m sure I won’t try that again anytime soon.
Decorating for Christmas
One big thing in December, of course, was Christmas decoration.
I bought a round glass vase and filled it with all kinds of Christmas stuff: a chain of lights, angel hair, Christmas tree ball ornaments etc.
I needed two tries until I liked the result, but now I think it turned out really nice:
I also got a tree-shaped Christmas plate. Whoever said plates have to be round… 😉
And those tree-shaped Christmas lights I already got last year but I still love them…
New Recipe for December
I had a package of low fat curd cheese left and was looking for a recipe to use it up. The almonds I replaced with chocolate flakes. A very good recipe that I’ll definitely add to my collection.
I finished my photo book for the year 2015 and started one for a weekend trip we took shortly before Christmas…
For the 2015 book I tried out a new format, this time a quadratic one. I haven’t had them printed yet, so I’m excited to see how this turns out in real life…
As you can see, I’m still into full images on one page.
I made some significant progress in organizing my room and supplies. There’s still a lot to do, but some progress at last!
