12 Days of Christmas 2021 – Festive X-Stitch

I wanted to do more Christmas crafting this year, but time is definitely not on my side this year. On the other hand, it has been fun to look at smaller quick projects and makes. In this post I’ll share some fun festive cross stitching, including the one piece I’ve managed to x-stitch this year.

I’ve always enjoyed cross-stitch, and find it quite relaxing. While things are definitely busy, it’s nice to take a few minutes out for a bit of mindful crafting.

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!

12 Days Of Christmas 2019 – Make Your Own Christmas Card Hanger

We have Santa and snowman themed pegs for our cards; as we don’t have much space for putting cards up. Before that we have used the age old classic string across the wall! If you want to get creative and make your own Christmas card hanger; I thought I’d share how super simple it is!

We are lucky enough to get quite a few cards at Christmas time. I usually participate in at least one card swap; as well as sending to a few online friends. Sometimes I then offer to send a handmade card or two online if I have any left; as I make them all in one go, and sometimes end up with extras! So keep an eye on Twitter!
