My writing in the later part of last year pretty much went to hell. I had so much going on. I barely made it to the gym even which is weird for me. This was me and my friend Robert leaving work on Christmas Eve as I went on well needed leave until January 8.
Randomly the only thing I was on top of was Christmas. I eased into the season this year with a relaxed mind and a happy heart. I can’t remember the last time that happened.
Christmas Eve looked like this in our house.
Under that tree is, of course, the handmade gifts are under there also. I was pretty proud of them this year 🙂
Oldest daughter is going through her hippy phase and wanted something pretty, feminine and also maybe something to do with nature. I found the bit of drift wood when out walking along the beach way back in July or August and had it tucked away.
She was super excited when she opened it and we had to hang it that day 🙂
Our youngest daughter is extremely into 21 Pilots so I made her this:
Middle daughter is going through a painful stage and I have absolutely no idea what to make for her this year so she got this:
Boys are always hard to make stuff for so after and entire year of having no idea what to do this time our son got these to go with his new home.
Then there was my lovely daughter in law and awesome trainer.
I made them fairy jars only they went COMPLETELY wrong and you couldn’t see through them in the slightest. I was so disappointed! Rather than sit down and cry I added some pretties to them, stuck a couple of candles in them an voila, we have hanging candle lanterns.
I will be trying that fairy lantern idea again at some stage in 2018.
So that is my crafting round-up for Christmas. Hope everyone had a fantastic break.
