December 24th

**Welcome to my little Christmas blog! Here you'll find something Christmassy every single day until the big celebration on 25th of December! Some of the things I have created myself and some have been made by you, my dearest readers!
Thank you and the Happiest Holidays!**


It's been a wonderful month! Filled with little ideas, crafting, pictures, e-mails, comments. This month has gone by so quickly! Thank you so much all, who have visited, commented and shared your memories, recipes, crafty ideas and talents with me and all of us. I will be keeping all these memories alive not only in my heart but also in my Christmas book...

You'll need:

a book or file with empty sheets
pen and glue

I bought my Christmas book a few years ago,
and it's called "My Christmas Organizer" but it's been translated into Finnish. It has places and spaces for cards, decorations,
addresses (essential! I loose them every year!),
recipes, memories, photos... And there are some thoughts and poems of Christmas here and there and some beautiful pictures.

It has little pockets to keep things in safe. Important things like cards, stamps, decorations, letters and recipes...

There's no need to get these ready-made ones, you can start yours from the scratch. Just pick up a file or a notebook and glue and pen. It's so much fun, and when years go by, you can get back to your memories and I can guarantee you go "What!? I have forgotten that!" It has happened to me many times!

It's almost time to say goodbye to this years
Christmas-book and Christmas-blog.
See you next year... But once tomorrow still!

Happy December 24th!

Yours with love,

What a wonderful idea to keep our Christmas memories Mia. Your Christmas blog has been such a beautiful crafting journey, thank you so much. I shall be back tomorrow to see your last post for this year. I'm off to work now but when I am home this afternoon our Christmas will really begin.
Keep warm.

It has been so lovely seeing your blog each day, with all these wonderful crafts ideas. You have done a lot of hard work to bring them to us, so a big thank you! This is such a great idea to keep all your Christmas memories in a book, and the pockets make it easy to store lots of Christmas ephemera. Have a wonderful time and a very Happy Christmas! Helen x

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
