Counting to 100…
I set myself a little challenge a few weeks back – 100 posts by the end of the year. 24 posts in 34 days. Given my distinct lack of output lately, can she do it?
I think the answer is yes, for Christmas is almost upon us and if one thing boosts my creative output, it’s my love of Christmas!
Here’s some of the decorations I made last year- this years will feature over the coming weeks.
I made these star decorations for myself last year and friends the year before. They’re very easy to do – tiger tail, crimps, beads and crystal stars and look quite pretty. Prettier than the photo!
Last year I decided an inexpensive way to fill up my new, slightly excessive, tree would be to make felt stars. I made so many felt stars I though they would never end! I was pleased with the results though.
The entire banner spells out ‘Christmas’. This year I have a some gingerbread men cut outs to make a garland from. They’re sitting on the ‘I’ll get around to it soon’ pile!
