Open house

After quite a busy, stressful and enjoyable week-end ; I'm back!!!

My French association L'Atelier De Beaumont hosted an open doors last week-end!

And since my workshop is way too small to have people walking about I decided it might be nice to get people IN my house so they can actually see what i do and can do ;)

We drank tea and ate cupcakes and everyone had a lovely time and since it was particulary cold that week-end I was happy to sell my stuff from the warmth of our living room in a cosy atmosphere and not in a cold stand outside like last year!!
The extra sress and inconvenience for the family payed off as we could share in depth to different people about the association , it's purpose and philosophy! We even received orders and in the new year we aim to have at least one craft club up and going as the local crafters come out of the wood work!!! :)

That's all folks!

Advent calender

Here's our advent calender 2008!
Being a "multi cultural "family our kids enjoy quite a few different seasonal traditions!! This one comes from the Swiss German side.
Each day of december until the 24th they get to unwrap a little packet.
They are always excited about it ( apart from or nearly 14 year old who is obviously too old for such futility ;) !!!!


Don't you love change? I do!

I think humans need change to stay healthy in the mind!!!

If not,just like still water it stagnates............................................................

Well anyway that was my convincing line to hubby about changing the wallpaper in our longeroom :) It looks SO different and very bold!

If you want to know what it looked like before look under "winter blues". In november.
