We did make a Mortal Kombat lamp for Joep, and an andon with animal forms on the rice paper with color-changing LEDs for Nienke, so we did get to present some home-made projects during the traditional gift-giving.
I haven't been feeling very well lately. I'm not overly fond of pre-canned 'moods', and I like the 'Christmas mood' least of all. This year, we had invited all the family of both sides over to our house (because I refused to travel to and fro again). It was actually quite nice -- with too much food. ;)
