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!

Blogmas 2018 – Made in Cornwall – Truro Christmas Market

I look forward to visiting the local Christmas market here in Truro every year; it’s always great fun and a great chance to see some wonderful handmade products made in Cornwall. I always try to do a bit of my Christmas shopping here; and there are usually some cheeky samples to enjoy too!


While I was having a wander, I thought I’d take some photos of some of the brilliant handmade products around the market! There were SO many stalls I didn’t get a chance to take photos of; as it was extremely busy, but here are a few things I loved!

12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Gift Wrapped Hamper

In this post I’ll share some ideas for creating a wrapped hamper with treats or small gifts. I have a great love of wrapping my presents with a particular colour scheme every year, and it’s not uncommon for me to send “mini hampers” filled with goodies to family for Christmas.


I thought I’d share some photos of a wrapped hamper I have sent, to show that there are different ways to wrap and send gifts, at Christmas, or any other time of year!

Nautical Cross-Stitch Frame – TBT Projects

I’m sharing one of my favourite projects I have used to decorate our house – my nautical mini cross-stitch frame.

I love using handmade and upcycled things to brighten up our house, as we rent; so we can’t do much about the decorating generally!

Throwback Thursday

This was a quick stitch project, which took very little time! Ideal for beginners, or perhaps you’re just looking for inspiration for something quick to fill a small picture frame.

Working takes up a lot of time, and so it’s all about finding quick and simple ways to make our surroundings more ‘us’.
