Now the clocks have gone back and the nights draw in, my mind wanders towards Christmas. This year I have decided to try and make as much as possible, from decorations and gifts, to recipes and cards & wrapping paper. Over the years we have managed to make quite a few things, last years 'grandma's garden' (a decorated box of seeds) and 'grandad's shed' (a decorated box of beer) were quite a triumph!
I want to make our gifts from foraged materials, 'upcycled' materials I have in my cupboard or if I need to, buy things from the local scrapstore - in order to avoid over packaged plastic toys and mass produced tat. It takes me a long time to make anything nowadays so I need to put my thinking cap on and choose what I can make over the next few weeks. Quite a challenge - non?
These are all the people I will be making for and ultimately need to impress!
