Christmas Cards 2015. Freebies

Christmas card 2015

 

Once more, even though I’ve been pretty busy, I found the time to design, print, write and send my Christmas Cards. Some of them have already arrived to its destination. It’s a tradition that I would like to keep alive since there’s not much more mail that arrives home that’s personal and that puts a smile on your face, so that’s what I try to do once a year, put a smile on the faces of my friends and loved ones. So if you are one of them and you received yours, please take a picture and post it in Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #merryxmasdressink and of course tag me @dressink so I can see it!

This time I used this icons I found for free, I like simple patterns and I was looking for something in black and white, so they were just perfect. You can download this design for free here or click on the main image, if you also want to surprise your loved ones with a christmas card 😀

Do you have any christmas traditions? Let me know in your comments!

Rhubarb Schnaps

2

Last year a friend of mine brought some home-made rhubarb schnaps to a party, since then I have been thinking about it all the time. It wasn’t easy to find, but I found it at the end, one of the three ingredients and most important, rhubarb juice. Of course I could do it myself, but that would take longer, and like this I know it will always taste the same, and that I see as an advantage. Also rhubarb season starts in April, and I’m not willing to wait until then. If you’d like to prepare your own rhubarb juice, you can follow this recipe. I’m going to prepare a load of it for carnival 😀

Let’s get to it!

Ingredients for 1 l 

  • 0,7 l rhubarb juice
  • 0,3 l korn or vodka
  • 3 packets or 30 gr vanilla sugar
  • 1 l empty glass bottle

Preparation

Warm up the juice and dissolve the sugar inside. Once it dissolved, let it cool down a little, you don’t want the alcohol to evaporate or the glass to break in pieces. Mix everything together and let it infuse for at least 12 hours before you drink it.

This drink must be served freezing cold and in a shot glass!

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Anna!

” I’ll never get old, I’ll die before that “ – that’s one of the first things she said to me, back when we met 4 years ago. We were two strangers that met in a theater group and realized they had a lot in common. She’s been there for me in every rough patch I’ve gone through, lots of them in the last 4 years, and she has also witnessed every happy moment I’ve had. We’ve become very good friends and I’m very glad to have her in my life.

Wszystkiego najlepszego z okazji urodzin!
