This week is the 300's edition of the SC & more, isn't that a great number? Isabelle is taking part in a Creativity Fair and asked us to prepare blank notebooks to make notes and drawings on our visit. Unfortunately I am nowhere near Paris and cannot visit this amazing looking fair. I also don't need a notebook as I have several already.
Christmas time is coming soon though, so I thought of making my children a notebook each for Mass on Sundays.
A blank notebook would not make sense for my almost 3yo and my 4yo, they have one each already, a second one would be useless. Instead I alternated coloring pages with blanks pages. I found the drawings online, the very last one is from Tante Menoue who does amazing religious drawings and objects.
In our family Christmas isn't just about the presents, and there is no Santa coming. We celebrate the birth of Jesus and I am rather keen on presenting the children with religious images and stories. That does not mean we avoid non-religious stories, far from it! We have books about Santa, but for the children they remain stories.
I hope you like my little booklets. Go and have a look at the others' creations, there are some really nice ones!

Temperatures are finally slowly going down here in the east of Germany : 14°C instead of the almost 20°C we had last week. We are going to have a shock on the weekend though when it gets to almost 0°C and when the first snow flakes will start falling down!
We are supposed to get our very first snow on Sunday, just when I will be participating in my first Christmas Market of the year! Yeah! I'd better dress really warmly in order to survive the almost 8 hours out there!
That said, I want to share a few links with you today:
First, a link to a new page on this blog: my products catalogue. I have tried using DaWanda, but I don't really like it so much. So I am giving a go to online sales via my blog:
Second, a link to my Facebook public page. I believe one can have a look at it without being registered on FB, is that a correct assumption?
In any case, I hope you will like what you'll find there. Do not hesitate to spread the word and share!
Wishing you a good day

This week Nathalie wants us to "aaaaawwwww" her with sweet things. Her chosen them is "Kawaii" which apparently means "cute". I'll take her word for it :)
I am currently very busy preparing for two Christmas markets (on the 22nd of November and 5th of December) and I decided to try something new which I find super cute: Christmas tree decorations for the knitters.
I present you my mini-knitting kits! Aren't they really sweet? Totally "Kawaii" or not ?
|For the Museum|
|Knitting needles: about 2,5 cm big!|
I like them so much that I hardly want to sell them. I am very much hoping a few will be left over, if not then I'll have to make a few more ;)
Let's see on Friday what Isabelle will ask us to make. I missed last week's Panda challenge, I hope I won't miss another one!
