Season 1/ Episode 2 -- Christmas Preparations


Hello Angels,

How are you on this glorious day? I truly hope that your day went well and you experienced joy and love today. On my part I can say that I had laughed so much today that my abdominal muscles are still hurting me now, even hours later :) I met up with my great childhood friend and practically everything we said and also everything that happened around us brought back so many wonderful memories...
The truth is that I generally remember myself as a calm, quiet and shy child, but when I run into friends with whom I grew up and we remind each other of all the silly things we did together I am suddenly not so sure of my calmness.

Let joy into your hearts and learn to trust people as you start the waiting and celebrating until Christmas...Start lighting those candles in your hearts, stay open and let happiness into your houses, lives and hearts. Be merciful! Believe!
Wishing you a wonderful Advent,
Erika

Season 1/ Episode 1 -- Christmas preparations

Hello Angels!

Welcome to my first episode of Christmas Preparations :) Yesterday I finally decided to start preparing some "ingredients" for the home-decorations and so I did; it can never be too early to start especially since this is my favorite time of the year. What a cliche! But that's all right, because this is definitely a cliche I can most certainly live with...happily ever after...:)
Pine-cones...and that is: lots of them!
I sprayed some of them into a lovely goldish color, but I still left a bunch plain, simple and natural...And maybe next weekend I will be able to paint a few of those with white (I mean, only their edges)...Can't wait...But until then this is how my golden ones turned out.
Yet as I said, they are only the ingredients at the moment, waiting for their turn to be put into the right place.
