1st Advent... the magic begins....





I am making crepe paper angels and filling them with Advent goodies tucked in their skirts I think I will have to make some like crackers for the Yule table.



These are some silk velvet gift bags that I can put in a selection of small presents, that will be fun to unwrap, I have to sew some silver snowy sequins on this one yet.


We had the most lovely day choosing our tree  and just smelling all the trees together and seeing the magic in peoples faces, I hope you are having a wonderful Advent today.Thank you for all your lovely comments, and visits.
Hugs for a peaceful week
Lynn xxxx

Happy Advent!
Even more beautiful creations! You look very happy in amongst the trees. We plan to take a different approach this year - we'll have our tree on Christmas eve and enjoy a day of decorating it. Much later than usual, but it means I can keep my birthday separate from Christmas - something I've wanted to do for years!
Sending you many festive hugs of Advent anticipation

Hello Lynn!
Your velvet gift bag is beautiful, and the person who receives it will feel so special~~
I'll bet your home smells as if Santa were around the corner. We haven't gotten our tree up and decorated yet, but you make me want to do that right away!
Hoping you and your family enjoy every moment of the season.... and keep creating those lovely pieces so the elves have a lot to choose from!

Oh, your Christmas angels are lovely, and what a dreamy look the crepe paper gives her dress. The photograph of you selecting your tree is beautiful, surely something that should be in a frame, marking a lovely memory.

Gorgeous Angels you have made! We ordered our tree for a few ours ago from a work mate. In a few days we will have another 4 trees delivered for our childrens rooms. It will be an excitement to see when they are going to decorate them. Have a lovely week. /linnea-maria
