Shop Indie This Christmas

I wanted to do something a little different this month, and share some fab indie biz. It’s fairly officially Christmas shopping season, and it’s a great opportunity to support small business; shop indie; and spread a little love to those that may be struggling; as there are no craft fairs or the like this year!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

So here are a range of some of the handmade products from some of my friends online! If you have a small business, get in touch and I’ll happily add you to the list! Please don’t link spam; if you have a gift guide similar to this one, do tell everyone about it in the comments below!

On The Desk – Handmade Disney Cards

I thought I’d share something a bit different today, and that’s some handmade Disney cards!

I make cards as and when they’re needed; but rarely do what I did this week, which is make a few at once!

I’ve been working through my stash for ages; only buying what I really need, and this is something that I’ve had in a drawer for AGES! This was originally picked up because I (of course) love all things Disney, but it has since just sat there since, pretty much not getting used!

I found the kit in a drawer; while coming up with a card idea I will need soon, but thought, why not make up the rest too!

Getting to Know the Cricut EasyPress 2*

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

I will be completely honest, I have never given much thought to iron-on projects. This isn’t to say I’ve never had the idea, I just assumed it was too complicated or fiddly for me, as well as something at risk of being a bit of a fad, that I’d pay out for, before becoming bored with it, not using it or getting distracted with something else. This being the case, I haven’t really been aware of products to do this at home, though of course I know you can do certain projects at home with an iron. I don’t know the first thing about materials or methods.

Getting to know the Cricut Easypress 2

This seems like a strange way to begin a post about a product designed for iron-on projects, but I wanted to stress that I am a complete novice here, it’s unexplored territory for me!

Shadow Box Frame Gift*

I was very kindly gifted a product within this post from Hobbycraft,

the gifted item has been clearly marked with an *

For Valentines day yesterday, Stu and I didn’t really have much planned. Neither of us really buy into the day, though we use it as an excuse to give each other a little present, and some chocolate (because any time is a good time for chocolate!). This year I decided I was going to make Stu something I’d promised a while ago!

I worked until 9pm, so we didn’t actually see each other until the evening! So we got a kebab and chilled watching Game of Thrones (we’ve been re-watching from the beginning, ahead of the new season coming out soon!) romantic huh!?

Valentines Gift Ideas – Handmade With Love*

I was gifted some of the products within this post from Hobbycraft,

gifted items have been clearly marked with an *

Valentines Day, is something neither Stu or I take very seriously, though we sometimes give fun gifts to each other anyway! It’s only a couple of weeks after Stu’s birthday, so we’re usually pretty relaxed about it.

Valentines HC

It is however a chance to do a bit of crafting here on the blog, though I would say that although some are Valentines products, they could be made and given for many occasions, from birthdays, anniversaries to Mothers Day (March 31st UK readers),  and of course weddings!
