Darker day



These December days can be dark, gray and almost miserable. But add little snow, some color and lot's of imagination: it all seems much more brighter, fun and festive!




And even the days are busy (and lists get longer and longer), and sun seems to be permanently somewhere else, there's something that helps. Just the thought that my work will probably make someone else smile, makes me feel better too. Unfortunately I do not remember this every day - but then, suddenly, comes an email, letter, feedback at my shop... Something to remind me why I do what I do.




...And then I am smiling too, and everything I do makes sense, come rush or deadline.



Happy and bright December 7th!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. Giveaway here until December 15th! And I still would love to add, that if you, for one reason or another, can't use woolen mittens, not to worry! I still would love to see you all participating! And should you be picked as winner, I definitely can make you something else and (hopefully) equally cute. Set of fabric-coasters, a brooch, wall hanging... So please, feel most welcome to throw your name into the hat! Thank you.

......and out of darkness always comes some light. What a lovely post Mia and it made me smile to see your dear birdies in the snow. When I see them outside I think of your fun post with Super Bird! I am glad you are enjoying all the rush up to Christmas...it's all such fun. It's also SO good to see you blogging each day and putting some happiness out into blog land.
Enjoy your evening,keep snug.

Dear Mia, thank you for a lovely post! I'm so happy to hear often from you - especially now when my mind is so often 'up there'!
Your birds look so cute on the tree! My favourite is the white/grey with closed eyes!

Who says birdies fly south for the winter.....not in Mia's Finland! I love all your birdies and they sure look bright and cheery. Thanks for sharing your lovely birds and spot of snow. "You" make the days lighter! Have a great week, xoRobin❤

Hi Teje,

I am happy to show you some wintery pictures, even we haven't got that much snow yet - just that you remember home :) We're off to Helsinki tomorrow again, I am going to try to get some Chtristmassy pictures from there too!

Happy day!
