Shuush! Secret Santa

It’s Chriiiiiiiiistmas! And I’m making a little something for my Secret Santa. I have to confess that I’m enjoying the ‘make do and mend’ aspect of this recession. It gets you thinking about things in a different way which can only be a good thing. Making something, with my own hands holds a lot of meaning for me. It’s more; heartfelt, individual, handmade, personalised. Even the fact that it’s time-consuming is a good thing because it gives you time to think about the person you’re making it for.

Here’s hoping my little Secret Santa loves my handmade gift. Ah ha!… you thought I was going to say he or she didn’t you – but you see I’m smarter than that :)

    Totally on board with what you’ve posted here; this year again we’re doing a ‘£5 Christmas’ – you either buy the raw materials for under a fiver or just shop buy something for £5. Either way, it really gets you thinking about what you’re giving and how you can make it special.

    It always nice to receive something handmade and know that a lot of care and love has gone into making it – far better than mass produced goods.
