Christmas is here…along with my rapidly emptying wallet! I went to the shops to find decorations for our Christmas plant (there’s no room for a tree in our tiny house), and everything i liked was so expensive! 5 euros for 1 decoration! What the…!!! If i am not mistaken, is there not a crisis in Greece at the moment?! Who the hell is going to buy anything at that price! I dont even want to know how much money you need to decorate a huge tree!

So Christmas has been suprisingly busy this year, work wise. But i’ve also had alot of fun projects. Like making Christmas cards with the kids i teach English to…

And i also managed to whip up a poster and flyer for my good friends at Dress Affair who had their Christmas party that was as usual a massive success!

Merry Christmas!
