Besides getting an early start on my Christmas shopping, I am one of those people that loathe anything to do with Christmas until December. In the newsagents the other day I saw the cover of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine and felt a little decorating pang.
I always buy these magazines, thinking ohhhh I can make that. I came across the very cute colour Christmas wreath and thought yeah that would be cool, read the instructions, found out I need to cut out at least 40 odd butterflies and my interest was lost at that point. I love handmade items, just not those made by me 🙂
So this year why not give a gift that is truly unique and choose a handmade one. If you are clever unlike me, why not something you have made, or how about something by someone else who is clever.
Here are few of my favourite picks to pop under the tree this year at Christmas just to get your started.

If you are looking for bright and colourful artwork and stationary then I don’t think you can go past Crackers Art.
Upon entering Crackers Art site you will find a fun and fabulous place to explore.
Sarah creates a really vibrant and fun range of paintings. There are so many designs, colours and animals available it is certainly hard to choose only a few.
These notebooks would be the perfect little gift to pop in a party bag or in the Christmas stocking this year and you can even team it up with a matching magnet or bookmark.
And even better some of those cute little characters are also available as plushie toys.
You can keep up to date at what is happening in Crackerland at Sarah’s blog.
