Dear Family & Friends
With the coming holiday season, everyone starts getting frantic and busy to comply with the holiday practices...in fact, I believe it's getting more and more commercialized than ever! It's all becoming very stressful season...and our family shy away from the many unnecessary practices, specially the shopping bit!
|My little girl wrote a very detailed and long letter to her Japanese friend...it took her whole day!|
Remembering friends and loved ones...and bringing cheers to them have to be all year round if possible...and it shouldn't be an obligation but a true personal heart's desire, not dictated by time or what the masses are doing.
|The back portion of the letter is just as beautiful as the front:)|
Although we try our best to stay away from shops this season, yet we have been caught busy with a lot of letters to write and send (old fashion practice!!), and making little homemade gifts for the last month. We have quiet down by now.

There were a lot of birthdays to remember, families who needs a little more cheering ups at this particular time etc...My two wonderful girls got into action with a few homemade gift projects and lots of notes and letters to write:)
|Panda earrings...designed by the big girl:) Light and easy to post with an enclosed letter/mail|
I did too. I've finished a few home projects and have started another, and it's all good fun because there's is nothing much I could do outside the garden, what with all the rain we keep on getting! Next time, I will share some of my projects and tiny gifts made like the lavender sachets which can be posted easily with a mailing envelop. For the moment, all these photos above were works of the girls:)
Here's wishing you true joy...and do maintain a life above stress level:)
