I hope you had a nice relaxing Christmas! I enjoyed myself, in our sort of low-key way. We usually decorate the tree on Christmas Eve, and this was done by my youngest daughter and her friend. They did a wonderful job, and the tree looked great!
Some of my favorite decorations are those birds that clip on:
Later, I found 2 more boxes of decorations upstairs! Oops. Well, it didn't matter, the tree looked fine.
We ran a bit low on wrapping paper of the traditional sort, but found some other paper that worked quite well too!
And some people found interesting things in their Christmas stockings: Kinder eggs, soap, chocolates, and even a Kinder Santa!
My big gift this year was a Kitchen Aid mixer!! Hooray! I have been looking at them for a couple of years, debating whether to get one, and so this was very exciting!! I immediately put it to use in making some bread!!

I could only think of vases of flowers to make. Very unimaginative, I think they are my default setting.

I still have this little lady cut out and am contemplating where she might go,
