Hope you all had a spook-tacula Halloween? But now that it’s November [YES November, hard to believe isn’t it] we can’t delude ourselves any longer. Summer sunshine is a long and distant memory, rain has started to grace us with its presence, and the evenings are getting darker and darker. Its starting to feel like I need an umbrella and a torch anytime I want to go outside.
But now that we have got Halloween out of the way, the countdown to Christmas is most definitely starting soon. With only seven and a half weeks until Dec 25, we all need to start thinking about the festive season.
My sister has finished all her Christmas shopping, and I haven’t even begun. She’s one of these people who likes to pick things up all year round – whereas I like to build up the excitement and then make my Christmas shopping day some thing to look forward to. An event that I relish in with delight. I’m already browsing through my calendar to see if i can pencil in a date.
But never mind Christmas shopping, what about Christmas crafting!? Do you make handmade Christmas cards for everyone? Maybe just a few for those special people? I’ve been looking through my Christmassy papers and am going to have a few projects to share soon, but for now I wanted to remind you of the FREE downloadable craft class which gives you free step-by-step instructions on how to make this cool Origami Christmas tree, which looks fabulous on cards, scrapbook pages and even potted in a little terracotta pot. All you need is paper, a trimmer, a little bit of adhesive and a few coffee stirrers “borrowed” from Starbucks.
This craft class is totally free for you to use, all we ask is that if you like this then please share it with your friends on by using the buttons bellow (facebook, twitter etc.). Thanks.
