I´m Erica
and I´m working as a designer. Mostly I work with crochet and I love colours and patterns.

This christmas is the first with our son Jack. He´s almost 10 months old and it feels very special. I have always loved christmas and christmas decorations.

This year we don’t have a christmas tree since Jack thinks that everything within his reach counts as toys and he just loves to play which is great, but not for a christmas tree.
Therefor I made these christmas tree balls and put them in a christmastree outside our appartment complex. I think it looks really nice and Jack really loved helping me hanging them there.

Merry christmas to you all!
