Hello all! Had a little bit of a Christmas blog break, but it is now time to pull my head out of the box of assorted chocolates and start blogging again!
On a Tuesday evening between 7 and 8.30, I usually join a discussion with a group of lovely people known as the #craftblogclub. Challenges are set and we discuss ways to make our blogs more interesting, new crafts to try, DIY tutorials and such. Even though we don’t really have a ‘craft blog’ as such, I do mention my crafting from time to time! The latest challenge was to make a handmade Secret Santa gift for another member, chosen by the lovely lady Emma of Life is Peachy.
What do you make for someone you don’t know? This plagued most of us for a while, but I finally decided to bite the bullet and make the same thing I was making for my family for Christmas. So, Hayley Usher of the blog Showered with Love received a felt fox brooch, a scented heart hanger, a crochet bow brooch and a crocheted rose book mark. Hopefully she was pleased with it! 🙂
I received something all together different. My secret Santa was from the fabulous Gift Frippery, and I received this beautiful hand printed wrapping paper. As it is, I had already wrapped my Christmas presents, which is a good thing, as I don’t think I dare use it. Maybe for a really special gift!
