Spotlight Saturday Sale!

I know.... Thanksgiving is coming first in America... and in my country we have our own “Sinterklaas”.
When I translate that it means Santa Claus. He arrives half November with a big boat from Spain. It’s a really big thing in my country. And the day that the holy man arrives it is a special live program on TV as well.
Children till the age of 7 till 9 still believe he exist And from that day the children can put their shoes in front of the chimney and sing special songs for the old man with beard and his black helper. And for the horse there is a little cup with water and a carrot for his horse. He comes over the roof with his horse and his helpers and brings presents to the children in their shoe the next morning.
And on December 5th we celebrate his birthday with all kind of presents for the kids. And the older once we build surprises about something that is funny that happened that year and hide a present in it. Of course there is a large poem add to it that needs to be read out loud in the room. Mostly it’s about funny things that happened that year and making fun about it.
And on December 6th he leaves our country to go home to Spain again.


But now I have grown up children and we do celebrate this day with suprises and poems, I noticed that I’m also already busy with the Christmas Cards and making embellishments with crafting supplies in my home.
Today I made this lovely Candlelight wrapper. I added an image from Michelle to it. It’s called Snowman with Heart and can be found HERE!
And guess what?? Today we start with something very special. The image that is in our spotlight is also for sale in the store.
