DIY: Handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments

This year I have decided to put some personal touch to my Christmas tree by making some Christmas tree decorations. I have never been a great fan of Pinterest because I haven’t had time for it. But this year is different. Even during my working hours I would covertly visit the website to get some ideas of how I could make my daily life more pleasurable.

I just liked making pictures, capturing the moment. I love the fact that I can go back two or three years ago and see how me and my friends (or ex-friends now) looked at the moment. Continue reading
