So here we are in the no man's land between Christmas and New year.
It seems I not the only one to find this time a little bit nondescript!
The excitement of Christmas Day has passed, the presents have been enjoyed and packed away ready for another day, the turkey has been eaten in a variety of ways along with a mountain of other delicious goodies and the time has come to reflect on the year that has passed and to think about the opportunities, hopes and dreams that the new year will bring.
We had a lovely relaxed Christmas but I am now getting a bit twitchy for the new year to start.
As I get older the need to keep the tree up until the 12th day gets a little harder to keep, in fairness our tree does go up on the 1st of December so we have enjoyed it's loveliness!
I have already used some of this in between time to pin new ideas and inspirations to my pinterest boards, with one friend commenting that I was so over Christmas as I pinned an Easter themed pin on Christmas day!!!
I'm also thinking that it's time to organise another swap to get my creative juices flowing again - anyone interested???
I am making use of a notebook sent to me by Kimberley over at Creative Chaos to list the things I would like to make over the next 12 months, and I have also been using this time to reflect on my makes and swaps that I haven't had time to share with you in the run up to Christmas,
here are just a couple of things that I made that were opened on Christmas Day.
It is strange to think that people all over the world have things in their homes made by me!!!
Here are just a few of my November and December makes
japanese knot bags
make up bags
personalised half aprons
angel wing hearts
and finally a personalised brownie blanket!!
Phew, I'm not sure how I managed to cram that lot in before Christmas Eve!!!
