Christmas is coming!

So, as anyone that has met me knows, I am relatively new to blogging- technology hates me, and I it! But I have come to realise that I need it if I am to be successful in my crafting. I am overwhelmed at the amount of support I have received from the online crafting community and it is, through this, that I discovered #craftfest.

This is my first year taking part in Craft fest and I wanted to use this blog post as an opportunity to get everyone ready for Christmas. However, I won’t be showing gifts. This post will showcase Christmas cards and decorations which, of course, are just as important as the gifts. Below I have shown some of my favourite cards and decorations from fellow Craft fest members’ stalls. I have also included links to their stalls. Enjoy!

I love these animal cards! Mini schnauzers are my favourite!

These are so traditional and pretty.

This is so simple and would go with any colour theme you’ve got.

I just LOVE these, I ordered some yesterday!

These are my fabric gift tags, something a bit different for adding to a gift.

 

There are so many other amazing things on Creative Connections (http://creative-connections.ning.com/), available to buy throughout Craft Fest and afterwards, through individual crafters own pages and shops!

Is it too early to be making Christmas decorations? Better to be prepared! I’m in the process of making these Christmas tree decorations; simply made by cutting out circular shapes on fabric, stitching them together, right side to right side, turning them inside out and stuffing them with toy stuffing!
