YULNISSE COUNTDOWN calendar
While shop hoppers buzzed in and out of Satin Moon
3 elves magically came into being.
Design Diva, Lisa Girard, of Tivoli Designs
over saw the construction
of yet another advent calendar whimsey.
Julnissen are helpful household fairies that bring good luck to the home,
important components of Lisa and my childhood memories .
First colourful body parts and appendages,
and hats were created.
Jumpers with pockets to hold goodies,
enlivened with cute as a bug ribbon from our children’s section ,
and appliques ,artfully cut by Lisa
and skillfully sewn
were readied for the waiting bodies.
Time to get dressed!
A few little tugs and
Uff da ,and they were ready,
to jump on the Christmas express train ,
and get to the village
so they can get to work
on Christmas delights ,
