Handmade Christmas Challenge


Anyone else noticed that Christmas cards have made their way into Aussie Post? No point denying it anymore...we are now officially on the ramp up to Christmas.

During the week Toni from Make it Perfect, posted about her friend Leanne who recently produced a number of prints and decided to make them free for all to enjoy. They are gorgeous prints and absolutely perfect for a Christmas gift. You can download the prints here.



Toni is also, in her own right, a great jewellery maker - I should know, I purchased some of her earrings recently for some Christmas presents. Unfortunately they didn't last long in their beautiful packaging - the temptation was too strong and I ended up keeping them for myself. Toni's gorgeous creations can be found here..


What wonderful creations are you making for Christmas? Have you spied someone else's creation that would be perfect for a loved one? Perhaps you need some help with a few ideas.To join in, just leave a comment and simply add your link below.You can join in anytime during the week.

Mine is a bit 'tough love' at the moment but next week I am going to try and get more excited as I'll be able to talk more about what we're going to make for our kids.

Oh gosh, really, it's not even Spring (not counting the two half decent days yet) but i guess we're totally gearing up for Christmas at Shop Handmade (read: panic about how to package gifts quickly) & in the studio. Love Posie
