Here‘s to an eventful 2013! I wish all my Readers the very best for this New Year and hope you had a magic holiday season~
Spindle tree… so pretty
How have you been doing so long?
2012 has been quite the stirring year for me with a lot of work and not that much free time and I’m afraid 2013 will stay as demanding as last year but I can’t wait to give my best and make this year exciting and prosperous.
Some of the lovely presents I got
I’m in Italy right now but instead of helping trimming the vines and enjoying the sun I‘m writing my paper about Shinhanga for the Japanese wood block prints class. Today though I woke up with the feeling I couldn‘t let one more day go by without some serious blogging and catching up!
So here I am~
I know that you’re probably tired of all the Christmas pictures by now and I’m really late this time but since I almost completely renounced taking pictures of all the festivities there are only a few to show. Sometimes it’s nice to be the person without a cam and just relax and let your eyes enjoy the beauty and joy without a lens between the world and the eye, don’t you think?
Probably the best egg salad sandwich I’ve ever eaten!
One thing I never miss during Christmas time is candle dipping! There are several places where you can learn to make your own candles, colorful or just plain with beeswax and usually I love doing the colorful ones but this year (due to uni) I only had time during one day and since dripping candles can take more than one day, I decided to make simple beeswax ones.
Have you ever tried candle dipping? It’s very meditative and beeswax smells so good! As a child I loved to dip one finger and let the wax cool down to have a shell of my finger… And obviously I still love to do it.
And how did you spend New Year’s eve? To be honest, I didn’t go partying and stayed at our house in Italy. I enjoyed looking at the fireworks down in the valley and had some hot chocolate.
That’s it for now! I have soooooo many blog posts to catch up to and I can’t wait to do so
