Matxalen's 2023 Advent Calendar

 Hello dear friends,

This year's annual Advent Calendar 2023, organized by Matxalen, has already started with the first of 24 miniature tutorials. All you have to do is poke on the day No. 1 on the image at my sidebar. My tutorial will appear on day 4.  If you like it, please leave a comment.

Sadly, our Hanukkah this year won't be a happy one.  The war is still on, The agreement for the return of out hostages was violated by Hamas. There are many hostages held captive.

I'm leaving you a link to an interview with a special 85 years old miniaturist who crafts stunning miniatures.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0FjHkKmCxs

I wish you a lovely weekend with blessings


  1. I watch the news every day and wait for the hostages to return safely home. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
    I watched the interview you shared and unlike her family, I think it's great that she is still creating miniatures. It's not about "creating more stuff" but it's keeping her busy and her mind active. Creativity continues all through life, no matter what age you are.

  2. PS The advent calendar with tutorials is a great idea. I "opened" the first "window" and was inspired by the sunflower tutorial.

  3. De nuevo un año más estaremos unidas por este calendario. Vi el enlace, es fantástico mantener la ilusión y poder tener la destreza a esos años realizando esas preciosidades.
    Cuídate , es lamentable la situación que padecéis. Un abrazo muy fuerte

  4. I'm going to enjoy your tutorial next... for now: Happy Hanukkah... well, as happy as it can be under these circumstances. But let's remember Pandora's box... hope is still in it.

    And thanks for the very interesting link.
