Merry Christmas!

I've been so busy lately trying to finish everybody's presents since I decided not to buy anything (except materials) and make gifts myself . Very crafty and cheap indeed though I barely managed to deliver them on time. The pictures above are the gifts for aunts and friends.

And I even made all the gift wrapping which gave me complete satisfaction. I must say the tags I used are from Julia Rothman via designsponge.

I kept this one for myself because it turned out so good!

Things that one does when unemployed...anyway, on the same line I made this for my lovely friend Isa who loves dinosaurs and fairy tales:

Things that inspire me (but damn! they make me sad)

A song (poem) written by Joanna Newsom

Hey hey hey, the end is near
On a good day you can see the end from here
But I won't turn back, now, though the way is clear
I will stay for the remainder

I saw a life, and I called it mine
I saw it, drawn so sweet and fine
And I had begun to fill in all the lines
Right down to what we'd name her

Our nature does not change by will
In the winter, 'round the ruined mill
The creek is lying, flat and still
It is water though it's frozen

So across the years and miles, and through
On a good day, you can feel my love for you
Will you leave me be, so that we can stay true
To the path that you have chosen
