Create Make Share #2

What a treat the first month of Create Make Share has been. I’ve loved all the festive projects that have been shared, from mouth-watering recipes to inspiring crafts – thanks so much to everyone who added their link and joined in.

I’m definitely leaning towards a simpler Christmas this year, and this approach influenced my favourites from the linky.

I’m a big fan of crafting but I’m also very partial to a time-saving short-cut, so Katy’s wreath-making for cheats was right up my alley. I’ve made my own printed Christmas cards this year, but they’re nowhere near as gorgeous as Jenny’s beautiful mistletoe cards. After a foraging mission with the twins at the weekend, I’m all about greenery around the house – Katie’s simple bunch of foliage looks perfect in her bedroom. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of homemade advent calendars, and I love all the little details on Esther’s brown envelope calendar. I’ve been busy with the air-drying clay at home (secret Christmas present projects) and having seen Chris’s clay Christmas lanterns, I’m going to try making some with the twins (ours will definitely be on the wonkier side).
