Happy Birthday Babushka and Merry Ukrainian Christmas!

Today, January 7th Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas, a beautiful holiday, that comes after the New Years. We also celebrate birthday of Santino's babushka Tanya, who lives in Ukraine.

She came to visit for the month of December to celebrate Catholic Christmas, but mostly to meet Santino, as she lives too far to visit often. It took them about a week to become friends, and it was a great fun afterwards!

I helped Santino to make a birthday present for his babushka, similar one as he already made for his nonna. Here is the "tutorial".. well, more like a step-by-step explanation how we did it.
