Best get some Christmas cards out quickly before Christmas. Phew, almost too late.

Here are the last of my Christmas cards. As you must have seen by now, I almost never make two of the same. For the last card, Santa on skis, I also made a matching necklace: a pair of skis. Talking of skis, I just read an article about skiing. As I might have mentioned before, Finnish children used to learn to ski before they learn to walk (yours truly included) but we are now getting a generation of children who can’t ski at all. The reason is that there isn’t enough snow every winter, especially in the south of the country. It’s not like skiing is a really important skill to have, but it’s kind of shocking: Finnish children who can’t ski! I’ve never heard such a thing before. End of an era, I guess. Still, plenty of snow up here above the Arctic for skiing, although getting a tad cold: -23C and dropping!

More Christmas cards, anyone? Now you’ve seen all of this year’s Christmas cards. At least all of those I’ve done so far. No doubt I’ll make a few more yet.

Finally, here are some Christmas cards! Since I haven’t posted anything for such a long time, let’s do a real bumper-bag of a post. I almost never make two cards the same – hence the mixture. More to come. Honestly.

Flowers

Here is a bunch of flowery birthday cards. I’m becoming (or rather I *AM* already) terrible at keeping up with postings on this blog. I keep making stuff all the time but stuff just doesn’t end up here so quickly. I have some stuff I made before Christmas which needs to be photographed yet. *faints*

Baby steps, yes?

Tag, I’m it

I’ve been using some card scraps to make tags. On this first one the black plaque is shrink plastic from my test to see what kind of white pen works best on it. This was Sakura’s white gel pen and it didn’t work very well.

‘Ota rennosti’ means ‘take it easy’.

‘Iloiset terveiset’ means ‘cheerful greetings’.

“Heipparallaa’ means ‘hello’.
