On the shortest day of the year, when the snow covers the world and the stars twinkle in the sky you can hear quiet sound. It is all the creatures of Winter celebrating the return of the light. If you go out that night and quietly wait, you can even see them moving around the forest. There will be elfs, angels, imps and even mother earth herself. Let's follow them and see what they are up to.
A big Thank You to all the contributors making this a fantastic Celebration! I am happy and proud to present to you all funny, beautiful, mad creatures from all over the world! So amazing that we can come together likethis eventhough we live in Denmark, Dubai, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Serbia, Spain, South Africa, Sweden and the UK!
I will leave you to it, wishing you all a Merry Christmas, as we will today be travelling up north to see Santa Clause. See you back in January!
Once upon a time there was the old elf couple of Grandpa and Grandma Christmas. They were attending the big winter solstice party and dressed in their best. They had gifts for everybody, but just as they were leaving Granpa noticed that the gifts were missing. The undercover elf Tonttu Torvinen had secretly took them! He got cought and told that he had just wanted to have some extra for himself. Grandma said that he could just have asked and that would have been fine.

This is Superfee. She is an angel who usually lives in heaven, but sometimes she comes to earth to help little kids. She has one magical power: her scarf can transform into glasses. The glasses help her find the kids. She gives them toys, books, and shoes.

Two Angels and a King.
We thought about three angels but at the end one of them is king. Now we are going to make more of them to make all persons from the Nativity.

Unfortunately a witch has come along - she is very firm and sour. She loves winter time as the snow makes everything so quiet. But she gets upset every time the snow makes her curley hair collapse. The only thing that can make her happy is...peppermint filled chocolate - so that's what she eats..

A snow creature from Poland " Śniegolud" is arriving.
He stands close to the window and takes care of the snow outside, for not to get melted too fast :)

This is Emil, the imp. He is a christmas creature, sleeping the whole year in his treehut until he wakes up the first december. Then he walks through the winterly forest, looking kindly at every animal and plant ... he shows the fox where to eat and covers the flowers with snow. In the longest winter night he is sitting on his tree, watching the twinkling stars. At the end of december he lays down in his hut again, sleeping and dreaming of slightly falling snowflakes and shiny northern lights ... until next christmas is coming.

Christmas decorations for L's birthday-twin. I cut out some japanese dolls from a fabric i have, and a backside in another, added a ribbon and stuffed it. Perfect decorations for kids to play with! I got the idea at Fabechs Fabrik.
A friend of mine got twins a couple months ago, and it gave me the idea of a twin t-shirt. The picture goes from one t-shirt to the other, so you have to draw a looong dog. The dog is appliqued on as the rabbit t-shirt.

Detta blir en julklapp till en liten flicka. Hennes mamma och jag hade kaniner när vi var små, så jag tyckte det kunde passa bra. Jag ritade av en kanin bild, spegelvänt på pappersidan av ett dubbelsidigt limtyg. Stök med svag värme fast limtyget på baksidan av tyget och klippte ut kaninfiguren i tyget, pillade bort skyddspappret, placerade ut figuren på tröjan och strök fast den. Sen sicksackade jag runt kaninen. Jag tycker det är ett fint sätt att göra en enkel tröja lite mer personlig.
A Christmas gift for a little girl. Her mom and I used to have rabbits as we were kids, so I thought it was a fun idea. I mirrored a rabbit on to the paperside of a doublesided fabric adhesive. I ironed it on to the fabric, cut out the rabbit and pealed off the protective paper. I placed the rabbit on to the t-shirt and ironed it on. Then I sig-sagged around the rabbit. I think this is an easy way to personalize a simple t-shirt.
I know, it was not until on Tuesday you would see the Winter Wonderland. But we could not help ourselves, we had to build another one. We made glittery snow-play dough, recipe here, just add a lot of glitter and no food colouring to keep it white. Then we built snowy hills and let all the elfs and animals out!

A made a tractor shirt for her grandfather for Christmas. A t-shirt, fabric colour, a plate and cars of plastic with nice wheel patterns. We had a newspaper inside the t-shirt to prevent the colour to go through. Ready steady go! I fixed the colour by ironing on it.

Christmas decorations from angels and cupcake cases. How to: Fold the cupcake case in two, and once more, glue in between to get it to stick. Stick an angel on it. Add a piece of string to hang with tape on the back. Dip the lining in glue and sprinkle glitter on it. Hang to dry.
