I was over the New Year holidays with my family in Kavala, which is a port city in northern Greece by the Thracian Sea. It has about 50,000 inhabitants and you can find here cozy cafes, great shops, a beautiful beach and even a fortress.
You can fill the sled with a small gift or some handmade cookies.

The idea for a frog came from Claudia in Germany. One of the first amigurumi that I designed, was a little frog. Nothing fancy, but Daniela saw the picture on my Facebook page and asked me if I had a pattern for the frog.
Two weeks ago my husband came home (with a big smile on his face), he held two puppies in his arms and asked me if we could raise them. One puppy will stay with us and the other one will be with his father, once he grows up.
