Just as we're about to get knee deep in robins and reindeer the invites and paperwork for next years craft shows start popping through the door - it happens every year but always catches me off guard. I'm not one for forward planning - took 20 years to get this website off the ground ha ha - so thinking about a new business year just doesn't compute. I want to revel in the here and now, to really enjoy this slow and steady build up to the creative climax of the year. Every year, about now, I fantasise about what I'm going to make my loved ones this Christmas - the personalised photo frame complete with handpicked photos, that particular brooch to go with that particular dress, the silly in-joke stocking filler that only they will understand. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't, but when it does - it is always loved and mostly treasured. I wonder what you are planning to make this year, I'd love to hear! Feel free to comment below.... here's one I made earlier!
