My Scandinavian Christmas day 14

 
We're on American soil and it feels good! Sunshine on my face, In-n-Out in my belly--life is good! Day 14 of My Scandinavian Christmas is with the wonderful photographer, Charlotte Schmidt Olsen. Charlotte and I met a few months ago at Craftenhagen through crafter of Sarah Goldschadt. Charlotte is a crafter/photographer in Denmark who does fancy shoots for magazines like Bolig Liv and Alt for Damerne. I'm so glad to have her here! 

I was so glad when Brittany asked me to join her countdown to Scandinavian Christmas.

It made me think of my Christmases growing up in the seventies. I found a pattern that resembles this time to me. We did not have this bird at my home, but we had a lot that was along the same theme. We always made decorations for the home, a tree, and a lot of biscuits and coloured marzipan figures. I still love to do that. I find doing creative stuff with family and friends wonderful! 
For the bird I wanted to use copper-coloured paper, it is a colour that has recently court my eye. I found some wrapping paper, coloured paper and a page from a magazine. I used two different colours to make it sparkle. I put the birds on a small pine branch but in a window would be just a suited. 

Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much Charlotte for participating in My Scandinavian Christmas. I'm looking forward to your visit (that's a hint!). Check out her photography site here.
