Merry Christmas

Hi
I hope you all have had a blessed Christmas.
I can't even describe how different our Christmas has been this year.
Nothing has been as usual. 


Bækkebo, where Kamilla lives, has a tradition of ending the year with a Christmas service and a posh dinner. Lars and I drove to Bækkebo, just to find that Kamilla had become ill. We sad and talked together for a while. She got a Christmas pressent and we drove back home again.

This year Kamilla celebrated Christmas at Bækkebo; and Grethe, Aske and Mads celebrated Christmas at their house.
Jimmy did a lot to make Lars and I feel like it was Christmas.
It was just so difficult, because Lars wasn't quite all right - and on Dec. 21 I had surgery, and was banned from doing anything. Jimmy made a christmas dinner for us, and did all he could to make it a special night. I'm so so thankful for him.  


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


In Nov. it was my turn to make a little "Thank you"-gift, for those on my fb-group who had ordered Stampin' Up! products. I made this little treat box. It's very tiny, just 2,5 cm x 3 cm.

Christmas Fair at Bækkebo!


Christmas Fair at Bækkebo!

It was the first time Kamilla and I tried to have a booth at a Christmas market. It was 3 fun hours where we met many different people. 
We had put a lot of thought into the things we were selling. All were made with love - but would people buy it? 
Some things had no interest, but others were sold out almost immediately. It was a really good experience.


A view of our table!

My beautiful daughter Kamilla!




We even made it the newspaper ...

The healing of music

Hello again
It has been a very difficult month of November.

Lars was admitted 2 times shortly after each other. We consulted a neuro specialist, and the answer was that there was nothing that could be done to help him.

Life is is about both ups and downs. I believe our true "self" and our sincere belief,  will show it's true color,  when we fight the harsh winds that's blowing in our direction - when it feels like we are in the midst of a storm where we have no power or influence - only how we choose to look at things.

Music has always helped me when I felt life became to difficult. 
Music can heal the heart, when nothing else can. 

Our faith has helped us a lot. We believe in a loving Heavenly Father who knows us, He knows our joy and pain. He will comfort us - if we will just turn to him.


One day, when I was feeling down, I came across a singer, Stephanie Madsen. 
You get spellbound by her voice that's clean and clear. There is soul in her music - i the way she sings! You can hear that she brings forth a message she believes in. 

Try listening, I hope you will feel like I did.

The colors are very soft blue, silver, brown and grey.


Did I tell Beccy also have a store? https://beccysplace.com/ 
She makes some beautiful stamps. If you want the traditionals stamps - or digi, she has both! Also, Beccy are so generous that she provides a ton of free digi stamps. 
I've godt a lot of her stamps in my collection. The last time I counted I had +30 digi stamps under my file: "Beccys Place". 

My favorite are:  Nativity!

Last week was a  bit of a challenge. Lars had another Transitorisk cerebral iskæmi (TCI).
He's had them before, but it is a scare each time. He's better now, all he wants and need are to sleep.

So, that's why I have not been able to follow along with the cards challenge each day.  I just manage to do so to day: yeah...

Day 10 "I"

It is:
The Sixth 
Annual Month of Holiday Cart at: 

To day it is the letter "I"

I chose to go with ICE skating. I just happen to have a magnolia stamp, whereTilda and Edwin are ice skating.It has been a quiet day to day, Friday. I have been preparing things for the Christmas fair - it is just 2 weeks away. I hope, I'll be ready in time, there just seems to be so many small details to consider! Maybe, because it is the first time I'm attending such an event, am I overthinking things? - maybe just a little!

I had to look it up...
So, here goes...
