There is one thing that I dislike about autumn and that is the speed with which everything turns Christmassy. Don't get me wrong I *♥* Christmas but I also love the excited feeling that you get when you know it's coming - that kind of feeling is difficult to sustain over a 3 month period, the novelty wears kinda thin.
Any way I have been forced to get in the festive mood as it is Weft Studio's Christmas preview night this coming Friday and I have been frantically making stock like Santa's elves on Christmas eve.
There are very few occasions when I actually make something that I like [the eternal perfectionist constantly tempts me to throw it in the bin] however I definitely *♥* what I have done this time.
A veritable bunting bonanza! The flags are made with chipboard and covered both sides with a variety of papers from my stash, the letters are cut on the Craft Robo, the gems are from the £1 shop - a serious bargain! There are a variety of stamps too; including Prima, magnetic poetry, Love Elsie, Scrappy Cat and Studio G. The bunting is strung together with Jute string and finished off with American Crafts ribbon.
I hope that you can find some *peace* and quiet to create soon, if that's what brings you *joy* and I hope you end up falling in *love* with what you create.
If you want to check out some more festive sneak peaks take a look at Weft's new blog which has some rather yummy bits and pieces.
Right I'm off to avoid anything else festive for a while.
