Who would have thought I’d have had so much fun making up little cardboard pop-ups? I didn’t, and yet (as I’ve said earlier), doing so was wonderful therapy for my hand.

I must admit, I declined the first offering of pop-ups. “Why would I want them?” I asked myself. But then, the next time I was at the supermarket, I saw the $3, three-tiered, pop-up tree to put them on and thought “Why not?”
Why not indeed. I’ve been like a six-year-old with a new toy, revelling in what I’d get to make next, and then to be told “Take as many as you like” by the checkout supervisor the day I asked if there were any left-overs, I was beside myself – literally! Kate was like “OMG MUM!”, but I didn’t care and nor DID I take all of them 🙂
I bought my little treasures home and each night sat and constructed a few more until all but a few were erected and proudly displayed in my little Christmas Villiage. I’ve added my colour changing LED Christmas Tree, and a string of LED lights, as well as a little cotton wool, to create an ‘authentic’ (northern hemisphere) Christmas scene.
This little village occupies a shelf of a display cabinet that measures a little over 30 x 30 cm (12 x 12 inches), and just for those of you who may be wondering what I will do with them now, I have a couple of empty shoeboxes for packing them away for next Christmas.
I hope you can yours have had a lovely Christmas, my family and I certainly did.
