A christmas break and a present ...

It came without ribbons!  It came without tags!  It came without packages, boxes or bags!"... Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!  "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.  Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!"  

Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Lovelies, these days before christmas are so busy for me now, that i decided to take blog-break. But i will take time o visit each one of you. Thank you for such a great year of bloggy friendships and fun - you have made my each and every day nicer and brought so many smiles to my lips, even when times were tough. I'll be back with new ideas and a lot of exiting things lined up for you on the 7th. of January.

The cards above are my wishes for you and a little present They are my own design and you are free to print them for yourself or send them to friends and family if you wish to. If you use them on your blog, please link back to me.

Have a sparkly, delightful and cozy festive time with lots of LOVE -
see you son!

  16. Ti auguro un 2013 che inizi bene, prosegua come desideri e che termini con grandi soddisfazioni.
    Ti auguro di camminare su una strada chiamata vita, di inciampare in una pozza chiamata fortuna, di cadere in un abisso chiamato felicità.
    Ti auguro un amore sincero accanto a te che sappia comprenderti e guardarti nel cuore con amore
    per ciò che sei.

  17. Live, love and laugh! I wish you all the best and happy new year 2013!xo
