I wanted to make something using some of my viny stash this year; but I wasn’t sure what to do for ages. Not for a lack of ideas, but quite the opposite! If you’re anything like me, you’ll know there are SO MANY ideas for using HTV; (Heat Transfer Vinyl, or Iron-On Vinyl) available online. In the end I decided to use up some of my pink glitter HTV; to make a vinyl t-shirt with a bit of festive sparkle!
This post is not remotely sponsored but uses items from Cricut I was gifted in the past.

There’s something super cute about all the little gonks around at Christmas! I adore the little gnomes, and wanted to have a go at making some easy handmade gonks of my own.
I wanted to make something a little different, and keep it as simple and easy as possible! These are so versatile, and of course could very easily be altered to create a whole host of festive characters!

It’s been interesting juggling a lot of work hours, Christmas prep, and Christmas crafting; it’s lead to finding some fun projects to work on in a small amount of time! Like today’s project, a cute knitted bobble hat!
Knitting is still a great chillout project for me, so this was nice to knit over an evening after work. Along with scarves, and mittens, hats are a great Chrismas present, and a really easy handmade gift, for beginners or experienced knitters alike!

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.

It’s Day 2! In this post I’m sharing how I got creative with a wooden Gingerbread House! It was a great excuse to do something a little bit different, and try something new.
As much as I love the idea of making a real gingerbread house, it’s not something I could leave out at Christmas, because of the cats, and because generally I think it’s kind-of gross. And also, because we REALLY don’t need more treats and stuff at this time of year! So a wooden one seems practical!

It seems like far too recently I was posting Christmas content! This year, has without a doubt been one of the strangest! But here we are bringing some shine and festivity to the end of the year; with 12 Days of Christmas 2020!
I’d go out on a limb and say this might be the last one of these for a while, but you never know what’s going to happen in a year! After all, this blog is almost one year old now, and somehow I’m now self-hosted, and things are very different , but also somehow the same. And if you know me at all; you know I LOVE Christmas!
Most of these “Day 1 of blogmas” posts start with a plan…

I planned this a little while ago… Well, when I say I planned this project, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas cushion. It was choosing the design that took a little more time!
Way back when I planned the Halloween Cat Cushion, I also planned this project! (How’s that for organised?!) So when I picked up the plain black cotton cushion cover in Ikea, I also picked up a red one!
