No longer are my Tomte, Jólesvenier, Päkapikk, Tonttu and Nisse hiding among the branches on my Christmas Tree! I have found a perfect castle for them to spend the holiday - when they are not helping Santa that is!!!

How to Make "Punched Tin" Paper Angels

Punched Tin Paper Angels

Very simple "punched tin" paper angel ornament to make with the kids!

Since I celebrate both Guadalupe Day (December 12th) and St. Lucy Day (December 13th), I became very excited when I came up with this little ornament idea  -  a perfect ornament that blends two cultures whose special celebrations fall so close together.

Making a Christmas Elf Forest - The Beginning

Christmas gnomes and fiber trees

A sneak peak at my Christmas Elf forest! As many of you know, my collection of Scandinavian Christmas elves has been growing each year. But it is way too easy for them to disappear among the other ornaments and branches of my holiday tree, so I have decided that what is needed is a forest of their very own - a forest of "fiber trees" and mushrooms!
