I used an older magnolia christmas stamp and colored it with my promarkers.
The base of the ornament is a die cut from Noor! Design by Joy Crafts.
The shaker box is made from an empty ribbon spool.

Sinterklaas surprise


Hi,

Vandaag aan de slag gegaan met de sinterklaas surprise van Duncan voor school. Het is een Ipod Shuffle geworden.
De koptelefoon maakt het ook echt af en goed gelukt al zeg ik het zelf. Gedicht is ook klaar, dus dat scheelt allemaal weer.

I want to enter this picture to Sassy's Show Me Thursday #102

This gift is made for our traditional Sinterklaas where older children and adults make a nice pressent with a poem.

Bedankt voor jullie bezoek en een fijne dag!

Liefs,
Kitty




Sinterklaas is the basis for the North American figure of Santa Claus. It is often claimed that during the American War of Independence, the inhabitants of New York City, a former Dutch colonial town (New Amsterdam), reinvented their Sinterklaas tradition, as Saint Nicholas was a symbol of the city's non-English past.[17] The name Santa Claus supposedly derived from older Dutch Sinter Klaas. However, theSaint Nicholas Society was not founded until 1835, almost half a century after the end of the war.[18] In a study of the "children's books, periodicals and journals" of New Amsterdam, the scholar Charles Jones did not find references to Saint Nicholas or Sinterklaas.[19] Not all scholars agree with Jones's findings, which he reiterated in a book in 1978.[20] Howard G. Hageman, of New Brunswick Theological Seminary, maintains that the tradition of celebrating Sinterklaas in New York existed in the early settlement of the Hudson Valley. He agrees that "there can be no question that by the time the revival of St. Nicholas came with Washington Irving, the traditional New Netherlands observance had completely disappeared."[21] However, Irving's stories prominently featured legends of the early Dutch settlers, so while the traditional practice may have died out, Irving's St. Nicholas may have been a revival of that dormant Dutch strand of folklore. In his 1812 revisions to A History of New York, Irving inserted a dream sequence featuring St. Nicholas soaring over treetops in a flying wagon — a creation others would later dress up as Santa Claus.
But was Irving the first to revive the Dutch folklore of Sinterklaas? In New York, two years earlier John Pintard published a pamphlet with illustrations of Alexander Anderson in which he calls for making Saint Nicholas the patron Saint of New York and starting a Sinterklaas tradition. He was apparently assisted by the Dutch because in his pamphlet he included an old Dutch Sinterklaas poem with an English translation. In the Dutch poem, Saint Nicholas is referred to as 'Sancta Claus'.[14] Ultimately, his initiative helped Sinterklaas to pop up as Santa Claus in the Christmas celebration, which returned - freed of episcopal dignity and ties - via England and later Germany to Europe again.
The Saint Nicholas Society of New York celebrates a feast on 6 December to this day. The town of Rhinebeck in Dutchess County, New York, which was founded by Dutch and German immigrants, has an annual Sinterklaas celebration. It includes Sinterklaas' crossing the Hudson River and then a parade to the center of town.[22]
During the Reformation in 16th-17th century Europe, many Protestants changed the gift bringer from Sinterklaas to the Christ Child or Christkindl (corrupted in English to Kris Kringle). Similarly, the date of giving gifts changed from December 5 or 6th to Christmas Eve.[23]

Kerstboom Kadozakje



Hey!

Dit kerstboom kadozakje is de duo challenge van november bij Annete's Creafarm Challenge Blog. Het knippen van het patroon was een aardig werkje, maar het resultaat is wel erg leuk. Het blijft mooi rechtop staan. Ik ga het als kerstdecoratie in mijn huis gebruiken. Vind hem te leuk om weg te geven. hahaha....

Heb besloten de voorkant nog iets aan te passen en heb de slinger in Tilda's hand voorzien van 3 plakparels en een extra swirl toegevoegd. Zie hier het resultaat.

Geen idee waarom de afbeelding zo wordt weergegeven,
op mijn pc staat hij normaal... sorry... je moet je beeldscherm kantelen.
