Christmas ideas from 2010~


Here are some pics of our Christmas in 2010.  Enjoy and hopefully you can get a few ideas of your own. Most of these ideas can be done here in Turkey without needing something from the States!

Egg Carton Advent Calender.
This project was funny..it was called the last minute 11 day late advent calender.  Tissue paper, red paint and large egg carton. Little pices of paper were placed inside each egg hole.
Annual individual no-bake Ginger Bread (Biskuvi) houses.

Hanging Cardboard Christmas Tree.
This hung in our kitchen and the kids helped paint it green and decorate.

Homemade Clothes Pin Ornaments
They were a gift for my sweet friend Alyssa.


Cutting, painting and hanging Snowflakes.

Check here for our DIY racetrack we made 
last Christmas for our son. 

Ok that was 2010... 
This year I have a different last minute Advent Calendar...however I was a week ahead this year. ;) Maybe I will post it before next year. ;)

Enjoying the Simplicity and joy of Christmas.
In our west corner.
