Hi folks :) I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I'm sorry its been a little while since i've had a chance to post or catch up with the news from my favourite crafty blogs, November and December were the busiest months ever for Free Spirit Designs and something had to give!
It was a real pleasure to make all those Christmas pressies though...
...as i work on them i find myself excited at the thought of someone opening it up on Christmas day, almost as though i'm giving them myself! :)
Its always soooo lovely when i hear back from a customer that they are pleased with their purchase. I've has some especially touching reviews on Etsy this year which have given me a great feeling of pride and job satisfaction. I'm very grateful to those that take the time to write them xxx
I did manage to squeeze in a little bit of crafting on the home front on Christmas Eve when i collected some holly and ivy from the woods nearby to make a wreath for our front door - i used a dried ivy vine tied in a circle as the base and just poked the foliage in, and finished off with a couple of Christmas tree decorations. It didn't take long and the materials were free so i thought i'd share it here incase it inspired someone else to have a go at making their own next year!
Now we're into the new year my head is bubbling with ideas and plans, i look forward to unveiling some of them soon :) First though i'm dying to find out what the fabulous Handmade Monday crafters have been up too... i've missed you all! xxx
