My nephew Gabriele is eleven years old and he is already able to create such a beautiful creature.

He’s made it out of wonderfully colored clay he got for Christmas.

He made it and baked it and it’s done.

I love it!

A dragon – so adorable!

Just look at the tongue – such a precise work.

I am amazed!

And there’s also a little secret.

The Wizard and The Dragon have their own little brains put in their heads.

There are small red balls of clay that represent their brains.

So they are pretty smart.

I think I’ve just heard them say something…

… for Christmas from a far away land.

That is a very, very special occasion for us because we – I mean me and my parents – get to see her very rarely. Usually every three or four years.

She arrived with her husband and their lovely son and we have all been having the best time since then.

And, of course, she has brought us many adorable presents.

Otherwise we wouldn’t have let her in!


Since she decided not to use paper for wrapping this year’s presents she created something very special.

Wonderful Christmas sacks.

Just have a look…

Adorable indeed.

She has sewn this beauty on her sewing machine and added a piece of embroidery that she has made by herself too.

And it has been custom made for each of us.

For example this is a sack for my boyfriend because he loves sweets so much.

Oh, one with a cupcake.

Who could that be for?

Who loves to bake?

I have no idea.

Not at all.

The detail of the one for my Mom.

And the one for my Dad.

Dear Adriana, this must have been so much work.

You are amazing.

And this one… who could this one be for?

Somebody who loves dogs very much?


… OR! …

… for a dog itself?

Well, the second possibility is correct.

Because everybody loves our little cute Georgina.

Adriana, my dearest sister – thank you, you are the best!

Lately I’ve made some yummy cookie lollipops.

In case you wonder how to wrap a cookie lollipop I’ll show you.

It’s really easy!

All you need is a piece of cellophane, some transparent duct tape, some lovely colorful ribbons and a pair of scissors.

That’s all.

1. First you cut a rectangle out of the cellophane.

My cookies were 3- inches (7 cm) wide and had 7-inches (15 cm) long sticks put in them.

For these measurements I used a 7×6 inches (17×15 cm) cellophane rectangle.

Place the lolly onto the cellophane – with its front side facing downwards.

2. Fold the left side…

3. … then the right side and seal it with a strip of the duct tape.

4. Then fold the top side of the cellophane rectangle and use some duct tape again to seal it.

5. Now we’ve created a nice little sleeve for our lovely cookie (I wanted the sleeve to be a little shorter here so I cut it a bit).

6. To give it the last touch tie the ribbon around the stick tightly.

You can even make a bow if you feel like it.


I’m sure everyone will be amazed by your wonderful cookie lollies!
