I passed this huge poster at the Culture House where the Children´s Museum is also situated.
The message is that you can attend a workshop at the Museum and make your own Father Christmas figures out of empty loo rolls/toilet rolls every day in December.
Than I started thinking about all homes who carefully put out these handmade figures, given as presents from small family members, children or grandchildren. They probably still make them in kindergardens, with lots of busy adults who put more work in to finishing off creative presents, than the childrens parents will ever know.....
Yes, I still have some old samples..... with a funny grin on their faces.
I guess you all have something similar. Enjoy decorating!
I am off to this years first Christmas dinner tonight...... well actually I had one in January, since it was soooo busy around Christmas last year.
Have a nice weekend!:)

Very funny, I am sure somewhere lie a couple of my old masterpieces. I'll ask my mom, or my son...
