So this is X-mas and what have you done?

I have done these

I love the song Happy X-mas written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. It's one of those songs that you can't survive without singing too high. And we all know it doesn't sound very good...competing with children's choir isn't the greatest idea. And I have to admit it has a quite powerful video in YouTube. If you survive with no tears at all - that is almost impossible...I think. But there you can also find this longer video which is about John Lennon and Yoko Ono speaking about the way of the world, people and violence. You can find it here. In the end of this video there's also the music video of the song Happy X-mas. Why I'm writing about Lennon's song, I'm not quite sure but when I began writing my post I was going to write about what I have done and that sentence reminded me about this great X-mas song and what it represents...without going too deep and hopefully without sounding too shallow let me tell you now about what I have done - my handmade presents.

I made a wrapping paper out of an old writing paper and decorated it with polka dots made by woodblock printing. And I used also sewing machine to make a one single line going through the paper. And also if you remember I had a x-mas gift card project in process few weeks ago and now as you can see - cards have come from printing house.  Yey!

This is hard to write about these two so different matters in same post. But that is reality.  Even though you can spend your time with doing nice things like presents to your beloved ones it doesn't mean that everybody can. So let's keep that in mind when we are making our perfect X-mas.
