Going home for Christmas

Monday blog post #6

Ho ho ho!
Counting days until I'm going home for Christmas on Friday. 5 more days and I'm traveling to Croatia :)))

What I've been doing all week?
I had 2 events this weekend so I was making new Christmas brooches for that. Finished with one custom ordered painting and started a new one.

New brooches are so cool - tea cups and teapot :))) all in Christmasy colors

Painting "Background" I painted for my friend who lived in Doha, met her husband from NYC here and then they moved back to Sweden. And this painting is for their newborn son Merlin.

Another painting I started is for a little boy who likes tractors and I can't wait to see the final result!

This weekend, I had two events. On Saturday there was a Christmas party for Australian's and New Zealander's at the Rugby club in Doha and as a part of that party they organized also a pop up Christmas Market. People who came were more interested in food and drinks (especially guys) so the sale was not good for me but I had a great time with my hubby and friends Vida and Aly :)

On Sunday I participated in Christmas Lighting and Christmas Craft Marketplace at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Doha. It was really well organized, lovely atmosphere, Christmas songs... and the most important beautiful weather because it was outside at the Fountain Court Yard.

Few more days and I'm off to Croatia and before that I have one more event - on Wednesday 12th December Holiday Welcome morning at Al Jazi Garden 4, villa 20 from 10am-12 (noon).

Love and hugs
