Merry xmas!!

Damn it's been a while, isn't it? XD
The thing is that when I leave for Torre del Greco I know when I leave but I don't know when I go back home XD In fact I'm still here..
This Christmas has been cool though, I had fun, we're 17 people at my grandma's place. A mess!! But I like it this way. Definitely!

Here I'm with the best buddies I'd wish for: my cousin and Lù :D

We made an awesome tour in Ravello and Salerno! I took tons of photos and I think I'll use them soon to make my photography posts!

I've thought about a lot of projects to make for the new year, since, while shopping for xmas presents I saw a lot of cool things that was obviously too expensive for me, so the next thought was automatic: "No money? I'll do it myself, go to hell!!" XD

I'd like to make this awesome shirt + corsage:

Aaaaand I've an external hard disk.. I want to make a case and I want it to be like this:

I also stole an old ipod like mp3 player from my dad and I need a case for that also:

No sheep though, I want it to be a dino *O*

True or False?

This was a funny swap to do :D

"Send each partner one written postcard (store bought or hand made) with one true fact about yourself and one false fact. When you rate your partner, you will add the fact you think IS TRUE. Your partner will reply with the correct answer. If possible, try to choose two fact that have the credibility of being true, making it hard for your partner to guess--do not include something that may be a giveaway in your profile. It can be anything (an event, an unusual gift you received, a generational fact...)

Ex: I would write... T/F * I took flying lessons. T/F * I was involved in a shootout."

Both my partners were American.

This was hard to guess XD

The ones I sent

to Germany

to Russia

Guess which one is true? XD

#2 photography post - Let it snow

This morning I woke up with a blanket of snow covering everything. Apart from the cold it's very beautiful, so this photo seems fitting.

November challenge @ Bloggers United - 4th (and last) week

"What is your ultimate gift you have received, and what is the best gift have you given"

The best gift ever received I think is the one I got from my bro this year for my

Not to Dublin though, we changed our destination, it's Paris now :D

Along with this, from my parents:

it's a 1L beer mug with a 1L can of Paulaner inside <3

About the best given gift.. well you don't even know when people actually like a present you give them or they don't. But I'd say that handmade gifts are the best I give. They're very special and made with care and surely unique! And they're the one that I enjoy to make the most!

Aww this was the last question of the "November challenge", I'm sad it's over D: I had fun writing the posts! Hope it was nice to read them XD
