project 365: 337-365 / DECEMBER MEGA POST

As it's the last day of the year, here's a look into December and the last photos of my project 365: (And I promise this is the last post that is this picture-heavy for quite a long while now, haha!)

337: Winter wonderland.

338: As it's been looking pretty for the most of December, I've actually ventured out more often, ha!

339: Sweets.

340: All that glitters is not gold, but I like it anyway.

341: Stamping all the Christmas envelopes with xoxo's and best wishes.

342: Two candles lighted on Independence Day.

343: Being an absolute weirdo and also playing my all time favourite game, The Hieroglyph Game.

344: Outfit posts to come soon(ish)!

345: Orange cake that I baked! It's really simple, but also really good:-)

346: Gingerbread house baking, day 1. I made two this year; one for myself and one for my godmother who used to be the one I made gingerbread houses with every year. And I actually made gingerbread churches this year since we found ready-made moulds for a church (and I would've been too lazy to design my own house). Thinking of making a Moomin house next year!

347: Result of noticing it's almost midnight and you've not taken a project 365 photo for the day yet: the worst photo ever.

348: More gingerbread housing.

349: Even more gingerbreads and snazzy nails. I got the glittery top coat in my advent calendar from mum and there's wee hearts in it too but so far I've only managed to get two of them out of the bottle and onto my nails.

350: More northern lights:-)

351: Slippers and pyjamas day.

352: Heart-shaped Christmas lights.

353: I seem to have duvet days (or plain 'I'm poorly' -days) way too often.

354:  Fircone Christmas ornaments. We didn't have a tree, so I've basically hanged all the ornaments and baubles and tinsel all over the house..

355: Army of wee gingerbreadmen.

356: Jars of gingerbreads to give as presents.

357: Amaryllis.

358: Mini outfit post; top is self-made, cardi grandma's old and trousers from KappAhl.

359: The last of my things arrived from the UK! So I guess I'm officially and fully living in Finland now.

360: From Christmas Eve onward our neighbour's been lighting these snow lanterns that go all the way from the main road to their house. It's really pretty. Apparently they've been doing this for years and will probably continue to light them until Epiphany.

361: My lil' gingerbread house/church before the start of its destruction.

362: All the chocolate, sweets and nuts:-)

363: I may have gotten three new Moomin mugs (hooray!), but at the moment this is my favourite and also my favourite present this year:-)

364: Reading Downton book! I am so sad it's over, but at the same time happy with how it ended. Get in touch if you want to talk about Downton Abbey with me because I have emotions xo.

365: I made cheese!

366: Christmas lights.

367: My meal of the day.

I'm spending New Year's Eve in bed recovering from a migraine, which is quite typical for me. But I hope you've all had the most wonderful Christmas, a happy 2015 and that the start to the new year will be the most magical one so far and 2016 will continue to get better with every day! Love you lots and I'll see you in the new year!

P.S. Somehow my year seems to have had 367 days, don't know what that's all about!

project 365: 307-336 / NOVEMBER MEGA POST

Here's a look into my November:

307: Made panna cotta for the first time in a long while.

308: After Halloween tits and other birds kept eating my pumpkins. It was fun to watch.

309: Tried to get to the harbour again to catch the sunset but we were just the tiniest bit too late.

310: James Bond time!

311: My mum got some old magazines from the 50s to the 70s that I spent one day reading.

312: Knitting and John Betjeman.

313: My sister send a card to me and mum.

314: Catching up on Homeland.

315: Duvet days with Downton Abbey and gherkins.

316: I've been quite lazy when it comes to jewellery (or make-up) this autumn/winter, so when I do put something on it's worth documenting.

317: First snow!

318: More snow and board games. 

319: I helped quite a lot with Operation Christmas Child this year. They help people in poor areas in Europe (mainly Romania) and for example give Christmas presents to children who've never received anything. So that's quite nice. We've been doing this in our family ever since I was little, but this year I had time to be more involved and helped pack many boxes!

320: Candles, candles, candles.

321: So excited to be able to do more things with my hair!

322: My Halloween pumpkins fed loads of birds and then squirrels:-)

323: The comfort food of all comfort foods.

324: Me and my mum made am Advent calendar for my sister.

325: I baked a tosca pie for my godmother, but couldn't take it to her before sneaking a couple of corners for myself.

326: First Christmas decorations starting to go up in late(ish) November.

327: Our local kantele organisation had its 20th anniversary concert.

328: Frosty windows are one of my favourite winter things.

329: Taking a break from Uno for once and playing 'Go fish'. I don't even care about winning, really, I just want to get all the puffer fish cards, haha.

330: Planning road trips that I'd make in Finland if I had a driving license and a car. Haha. This has actually been the first year I've properly started thinking about starting to take lessons, I have to do it at some point after all!

331: Found some jewellery I've had stored in Finland and haven't worn for a while, like this necklace.

332: Burning man.

333: Who needs colouring books for adults when there's Moomin colouring books for children? (I wouldn't mind the Harry Potter one that I've seen floating around the internet, though!)

334: Knitted a sock for the first time in over 10 years! Now I only need to conjure up the motivation to knit its pair, ha!

335: Christmassy gatherings.

336: Making Christmas cards:-)

That's all I have for now, and I'll be back tomorrow with my last one of these mega posts:-) See you then!
