Merry Christmas

When the last Kalendersheets
flattern through the winterstreets
and Dezemberwind is blowing
then ist everybody knowing
that it is not allzuweit
she does come the Weihnachtszeit
All the Menschen, Leute, people
flippen out of ihr warm Stüble
run to Kaufhof, Aldi, Mess
make Konsum and business,
kaufen this und jene things
and the churchturmglocke rings.
Manche holen sich a Tännchen
when this brennt they cry "Attention".
Rufen for the Feuerwehr
"Please come quick to löschen her!"
Goes the Tännchen off in Rauch
they are standing on the Schlauch.
In the kitchen of the house
mother makes the Christmasschmaus.
She is working, schufts and bakes
the hit is now her Joghurtkeks
and the Opa says als Tester
"We are killed bis to Silvester".
Then he fills the last Glas wine-
yes this is the christmastime!
Day by day does so vergang
and the holy night does come
you can think, you can remember
this is immer in Dezember.
Then the childrenlein are coming
candle-Wachs is abwärts running.
Bing of Crosby Christmas sings
while the Towerglocke rings
and the angels look so fine
well this is the Weihnachtstime.
Baby-eyes are kugelrund
the family feels kerngesund
when unterm Weihnachtsbaum they're hocking
then nothing can them ever shocking.
They are happy, are so fine
this happens in the christmastime.
The animals all in the house
the Hund, the Katz, the bird, the Maus,
are turning round the Weihnachtsstress,
enjoy this as never nie
well they find Kitekat and Chappi
in the Geschenkkarton of Papi.
The family begins to sing
and wieder does a Glöckchen ring.
Zum Song vom grünen Tannenbaum
the Tränen rennen down and down.
bis our mother plötzlich flennt
"The christmas-Gans im Ofen brennt!"
Her nose indeed is very fine

Merry Christmas everyone. I wish you all the best and I hope you all enjoy the time with your friends and family.
We do!

Simon says stamp and show

inspired by Tim's 12 Tags


My  favourite technique is the one he used on his 9th tag in 2011.

Stamping with a background stamp, embossing with clear powder. Then inking the whole tag and again embossing with clear powder.

This is the tag i made today. I used some tiny red bells. The colors i used are Evergreen Bough and Festive Berries. The Christmas Tree and the chipboard piece are Graphic 45.

The cardstock with "Christmas Day" is from Authentique. Just added a blue Sem binding ribbon and some more tiny red bells on top. Ohhh, and some stickles Rock Candy on the tree.

Today is my first day of vacation. I just have to go to work 4 days in December: 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th. Then the year is over....
I hope to get some things done during my free time. We still need some christmas presents and i have to decorate the Christmas Tree. We want to visit my hubbys aunt and today we both get a haircut.
We want to make cookies for Christmas......
We had a lot of snow at the weekend, about 15 cm i would say. But its melting away, i think its warmer today.

So there is so much to do, lets get started. Hope to see you soon with some creative related themes.
