Today's Thrill: There is nothing like seeing something I designed come back from the printer, whether it's a poster, a brochure, a book, a newsletter, whatever. It gives me such a rush. :)
I read or heard somewhere a couple of years ago that 99% of all Swedish households own at least one Advent candelabra.* I love them! They light up the gloomy afternoons and evenings all over Sweden, and really help you get in the Christmas spirit. When we lived in Malmö, in an apartment building, there was one in EVERY single window. We used to joke that the windows sporting straight versions of the usually triangular advent lights were deviants...or immigrants. Last year, Anders' parents gave us their metal advent stars to hang in the windows as well. They'd had them since they got married. :) They're gold and perforated with tiny holes in decorative patterns to let the lights shine through.
