our handmade Christmas

1 comment
Want to hear about my plan? For those who know me I *heart* Christmas and plan early (and today is the 1st June so its already the middle month of the year)!

decorations made for our advent calender

Last year I had a grand plan to hand make family members Christmas presents. I found that this was really fun and satisfying but also overwhelming having to myself make handmade gifts for everyone. I also every year enjoy making all our Christmas cards.

This year's plan is to buy HANDMADE from others. To buy things friends have made or could make (when I ask) and be supporting others. Or even the idea of making things and swapping. I myself have things listed on felt so the plan is to make a few more things on felt to sell/gift to others and keep a look out for things to buy. I also plan to include buying handmade items for/to add to our Christmas cards. I am posting this early because I like to be organised and hate the mad rush in November/December when people seem to freak out and notice Christmas is a few weeks away and with Handmade items they are not mass produced and they take time and love to make.

Would love to hear your ideas for a handmade Christmas or things you do already for a Handmade (with love and purpose) Christmas, or if there is a skill or talent that you have that would make an awesome gift (feel free to post a link when you comment)!!
