Saturday I gave a Christmas decoration workshop and it was a big succes! I had 8 students, and the oldest student was 85 years old! She was so sweet, always saying to me she wasn´t able to make the decoration, but in the end she did it with a lot of fun. It was my first time I gave a workshop, I loved it and my students loved it to.
While we had a little pause, we ate some lovely carrot cake and drank a cup of tea.
At the same time I´ve got a Christmas fair going on for ten whole days! It has been a lot of fun, beeing the youngest of the ladies selling crochet and jewelry.
Thank you so much Solange, Ana, Amanda, Marcelina, Maggie, Daniela, Isabel and D. Maria.
Here are two paintings I painted. The first one I just finished and is the Christmas present for my boyfriend, (I just hope he doesn´t come here to my blog! But I don´t think so, he´s not a internet freak like me) and the second one I already painted a while ago.
One day I would love to expose them and I know just the perfect place where to do it. But I have got to make some more for the exposition.
I painted them with aquarelle painting and used the best painting brush ever! A Pentel aquabrush, it has a water recevoir and it paints like heaven!
I still have so many apples that I picked in France, so today I made two apple pies. I wanted to try something new, so in the smaller one I added walnuts. They are delicious with a cup of ginger, jasmin and honey tea! hhhmmm I love it!
If you want the reciepe, just send me a message and I´ll tell you my granny´s reciepe.
Finally I´ve put my beautiful Christmas decorations for sale on my Etsy page!
I´m giving a workshop of these pretty little "Ojo de Dios" on the 14th of December. I´m giving the workshop in my village Monchique (Portugal) in a tea house called Óchálá from 11.00pm to 13.00am. While making two decorations we will have some cake and drink a tea, all for just €10!
