I hope you’ve all had a great start of this lovely month. I certainly have – though it has been so busy. Today I’ve been at the University of Copenhagen the entire day. These days there are a big conference called An Open World – Science, Technology and Society in the Light of Niels Bohr’s Thoughts in the occasion for celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the atomic model by the Danish scientist Niels Bohr (whoa, that was a looong sentence). The title pretty much sums up the subject. My good friend Karen and I had exclusively gotten a ticket through The Academy for Talented Youth (which I’ve told about here).
It was a great experience. And I felt so grown up by walking around all those professors with my very own name badge. I had to put a picture of in on Instagram ;)
The first of December was spend the perfect way:
Our family is in a big group of friends who all meet once in a while (parents as well as children). Each year in December we meet at one of the families in the northern part of Zealand, where we eat Apple-skivers (a typical Danish christmas treat), drink glögg (another Danish christmas treat) and craft. It is SO cozy!
I love that day of the year. Best way to spend an afternoon!
This year I made these lovely manilla tags. They are so easy to make and look just lovely. I can’t wait to put them on my presents this year. I have to start thinking a little more about presents by the way.
So, how to do? Simply take some plain manilla tags. Glue some pretty christmas pictures on them (in Denmark “glansbilleder” (which are small shiny drawings) are very popular and easy to get your hands on – every little girl collects them and you can buy them everywhere – but I don’t know the name for them in english. My dictionary says it is called “scraps”, but I’m not sure that is the right word. Anyways – every pretty picture or sticker could do it). Finish with some twine.
Tadaa! Easy and pretty.
You could possibly sprinkle a bit of glitter on them. It is christmas after all.
Have a great December!
