Merry Christmas

So its Christmas, a time for feasting, families, friends and fun.  So we thought we would sign off for Christmas with a little picture from us to wish you all a happy time.
Also, if you haven't already, go take a look at our Pin Advent Calendar over on Instagram which showcases some amazing Pins from 2016.  If you don't get any of these for Christmas, then you can always cheer January up with some great Pin buying!
Looking forward to seeing what 2017 will bring, we have lots coming up in the pipeline and can't wait to share it all with you.
We hope you have an amazing Christmas doing whatever it is you want to do and have a very Happy new Year!
We will be around on social media over the holidays, but for the blog, see you on the other-side!
H & Sammy, xxx

Food for feasting this Christmas

I don't know about you, but all thoughts go to food at this time of year and that's even before Christmas Dinner!

Gift Wrap I Want to Try

Debee Campos  //  Humphrey and Grace  //  Homey oh my  //  Fall For DIY

I don't know about you but I am a gift-wrap junkie, I always try and make the wrap as lovely as the gift inside. These cute DIY options are floating my boat for my Christmas wrapping this year. I love the printable wrap and the hand-tied fabric! I will definitely be using that for some of my gifts, let's face it, I have no shortage of fabric to choose from. If you need some more inspiration check out my Gift wrap 3 ways post.

Sammy's Handmade Christmas Tree 2016

Every year My Christmas tree has a theme, yes, I am not sorry, I am one of 'those' people. When we add kids to our family they will get to sort out the tree, but until then it is all mine. This year I was planning to go with a kind of winter forest thing, then I saw our friend Claire (aka Claireabellemakes) was bringing out some limited edition Christmas decorations and I had an even better idea. This year all the decorations on my tree are handmade by independent UK Designer/Makers.

Lets Meet: Peas and Needles

Since meeting Lucy at the Mollie Makes Awards we have been wanting to have her on for a chat and so now the time has come - its like Christmas has come early!  So lets hear all about Peas and Needles and what she has got coming up.
