🎄 Happy Saturday and this photo is of the tree with homemade decorations made by a family who has @noahsarkcharity to thank for a scary time with their little boy who needed medical care.
🎄 St Michael's Church in Marshfield in Cardiff South Wales has a Christmas tree festival today where you can visit the church full of trees for lots of charities where you can donate some pennies if you feel inclined. All donations for this lovely one is going to @noahsarkcharity so thank you ❤️
Feeling soooo much better today, finally! I've been working on some new design ideas this past week while I've been sick, so there will be some new stuff popping up very soon 🙂
This decorative piece is still available for purchase by DM. It is the first in a series of cityscapes and city lights displays, check my bio for more! Looks great as a wreath center, tree ornament or wall hanging 😉
CHRISTMAS DECORATION IDEA: Cork Angel
Chances are you'll be accumulating a few corks over the festive season...here's a great way to use them!;-)
- Play around with different coloured ribbon for the wings - gold, silver, red, green or white would all look awesome.
- Use cedar moth balls for the head as they smell great too:-) #ChristmasDecorations#handmadedecorations#christmas#ChristmasAngel

We finished all of our morning work, and now we’re settling in for an afternoon of crafting and Christmas movies. First up: cranberry and popcorn garland for our tree decorating party tomorrow... and a few extra strands for our feathered friends outside! And, this is still a great learning activity since it involves recognizing patterns and sequences, counting and sorting, and fine motor skills! 🍿🍿🍿
Follow and tag @threefoldmama and @woodnutty for more natural play ideas and a chance to be featured.

Today it is getting out all my kit for mixed media fun at @cowslipworkshops in a few days. Stitching, hand and/ or machine, cutting, pasting, stamping, typing, screen printing... these days are always great fun and I have some really sweet new designs for decorations as well. I think there are one or two places left, and watch out too for a similar day at Ticehurst. It reminds me if the excitement of card, glue and glitter when we were small, and these mixed media workshops have the same feel of fun - no skills required, but often they are discovered on these ‘play’ workshops. #mixedmedia#embroidery#vintagestyle#handmadedecorations#handmadechristmas#thestitchersjournal#creativefun
