"A post about Christmas.. In October?" I hear you cry. Yes, indeed. I'm one of those highly irritating people who get all doe eyed when setting eyes upon anything vaguely Christmassy. For me, Christmas is a time for family, friends, food, happiness and warmth and so every year as soon as the temperature starts to dip and the leaves begin to gently fall to the ground, that little spark in me is ignited.
Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of spending the evening doing some Christmassy arts and crafts with Laura Ashley and some other very nice bloggers. I'm the type of girl who looks at her DIY board on Pinterest solemnly vowing that one day I'll tick off at least one pretty simple crafting piece but the day never arrived. Until last night that was! I made a very glittery Christmas card that i'll most probably be posting to a friend, and a winter-inspired floral crown. It's a small blogger cliche but floral crowns are just the bees knees, and Laura from We Made This Home did a particularly smashing job on hers! If you're more of the sneaky purchasing type like me, Laura Ashley's Christmas range is actually up on their website at the moment and it's filled with all things glittery, bauble-y and bunting-y!
So the question is, will you be pulling all the stops out crafts-wise this festive season? Or will you be naughty like me and probably end up buying things?
Oh, by the way I did a little guest post for Laura Ashley over here if you fancy a little gander.
