more Christmas preparations - Vorbereitungen auf Weihnachten

Gestern wollte ich noch schnell eine Panetone kaufen - aber bei unserem Lieblingsitaliener gabs keine mehr. Oh Schreck! Weihnachten ohne Panetone geht gar nicht! Also hab ich zum erstem mal selber welche gebacken: tatata - meine Mini-Panetone!

Yesterday I wanted to buy some Panetone - but they were sold out at our favourite local Italien shop. Oh my God! Christmas without Panetone - not thinkable!!! So fopr the first time a made my own: tatat - my mini Panetone!

At Fairies with ´tudes I saw a tutorial about exploding boxes - just what I have been looking for for some special Christmas presents...;-) I am so pleased with how they came out!! Here are mine:

Free art!!!

Saw this idea on Dot´s blog and thought it was a great idea ( I have done this a bit earlier, but no harm in doing it again, right? )!

The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of art made by me. The only catch, of course: as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own blog as well.

I will be away over the Holidays, so please dont expect me to sent out anything before January...;-))

Don't be shy, sign up!! And please leave me a way to contact you via your comments i.e email so I can get your address.

Nikolaus Stiefel - Saint Nicolas boots

This is what we usualy do here in Germany:
on the night from the 5th to the 6th of December it´s Saint Nicolas eve. The kids have do get their boots clean and put them outside ( we only put them near the front door, since we live in the middle of the city...;-) ) and if they have been good kids, they get a little present and some sweets. If they have not been so good they get a twig ( with sweets hanging on it...;-). Since my husbands name is Nicolaus, he gets something in his boots, too.
I always have weired things in my boots, because they mostly forget the " Nikolaus" behind this: this year I had a broken chocolate Nikolaus and a book I already have* rollingeyes*

Last Sunday I sold some of my jewelry at the Advents market...unfortunately I have to say : ONLY very few!!! I do not know what the problem was, exept we had three power failures and so some time were our boot was only lit by candle light, very romantic, but imposibble for selling jewelry!! My poor sister ( how shared the boot with me) did not sell anything at all!!!

Letzten Sontag war ich auf dem Adventsmarkt um meinen Schmuck zu verkaufen.....lieder muß ich sagen, dass ich SEHR wenig verkauft habe. Ich weiß nicht wirklich warum alles so schlecht ging, ausser, das wir drei mal Stromausfall hatten und so war unsere Bude zeitweise nut mit Kerzenlicht beleuchtet. Sehr romantisch aber zum Verkauf völlig unmöglich! meine Schwester, die den Stand mit mir teilte, hat überhaupt nichts verkauft!!!!

I did a lot of preparation work for the market and so I am quite frustrated now. I really do hope it goes much better next Sunday on the Angel Market!!

Ich habe ganz schön viel Vorbereitungen in diesen Markt gesteckt und bin jetzt doch ganz schön frustriert. Ich hoffe nächste Woche auf dem Engelmarkt wird es besser werden!!!
