C= cookies and the sweet stuff. Christmas is not Christmas if not combined with all the good food that is so yummy in cold winter days and our kitchens are cinnamon, nutmeg and honey scented.
H= home decorations. They are essential for celebrating this time of the year.
I have to include reindeer for R otherwise who will bring Santa?
I=ice ....and snow (I have to add snow in this page!!!). Every year I'm praying for some snow here because here is so rare and nothing make Christmas crtistmasy like ice and snow, don't you think? The pocket in this page is made from a piece of acetate and covered with a piece of paper that I punched with a snowflake puncher, distressed it with some blue color and for the final touch I put some acrilic varnish so it's really like ice.
S= stockings. If you want some presents it's better to hang some stockings. Also this pocket /tahat is not very visible) is made with a piece of acetate to keep the stocking tags!
T= (christmas) TREE that is the center of this holidays and the thing that can't be missing.
M= (christmas) MUSIC. Don't you like the christmas music that warms your heart?
A= ADVENT. IN this page I create a little tag that is fixed to the page and you can open it to add some journaling or a photo and here is also the green-dotted part that is acctually a pocket for tags.
S=SANTA!!!!!! We belive!
I wanted also to say a big thank you to Cookie that surprised me today witha a special Christmas card and a present that will be used in the next days for sure. Thank you so much Cookie for your kindness and for inspiring me!!!

Christmas time is just perfect to make something extraordinary for our kids but at the same time we can make them be good with the Santa's story. So I told Kian how elfs are taking notes if he is behaving well or bad and that if he will be a good boy than the wishes he wrote (draw) in his letter will come true. But there is aproblem: Kian doesn't want to understand that you write to Santa once a year. So mostly every day he writes a new letter that is more or less the same as the one of the day before. I explained him that there is only one letter that counts and he always says that he understands and after that he immidiatly goes and picks his pencils and writes a new one. I just gave up telling him anything. I can tell you we have a lot of fun watching him every day drawing and loudly speaking while doing the drawing about his wishes.
I thought it's a nice moment to scrap and so I did alot of mini envelopes that make a perfect backgroud for this story. I love how the letters turned out. I simply used some acrilic paint and extra fine glitter pouder to make this vintage LO a little bit more festive. The picture of Kian is captured in one of his christmas wish list moments.
