In the flurry of the Christmas season, we’ve got work, shopping, tidying, school holidays, and Christmas menus to contend with! Isn’t Christmas time supposed to be happy? And relaxed?
As the Christmas season looms, it can sometimes be difficult to find unique gifts to give friends and family that won’t break your budget.
Well look not further! This DIY tutorial is so easy, AND it’s super cost effective!!!
It’s that time of year when we start seeing all the Christmas items pop up in the shops and my little 6 year old thinks Christmas is tomorrow! She always wants to have some yarn on the go (like mother, like daughter) and like most little kids I know, she loves to make cards. So we decided this year to combine her love of yarn and card making and to finger knit a Christmas Tree this year and then make it into a Christmas Card.
Life, the day to day events involved with our working lives, our social lives and a little downtime. Well.. If you are like Susan and I and have children it’s working lives, family lives with a sprinkle of a social life and very little downtime! While it often feels like ground hog day we have so much to be thankful for. Especially living in Australia, where so much opportunity is out there if you have the motivation and persistence to work for it.
We are unashamedly passionate about everything Australian Handmade and want to do everything we can to grow the Australian Handmade movement. This includes encouraging the next generation of makers…the mini makers! We believe it is so important to foster kids creativity and passions. We are going to feature regularly on our blog, some amazingly talented kids and their creative work.
Introducing our next talented Mini Maker, wet felter extraordinaire – Juliette!
