I have decided to once again wrap in brown paper, so these bright burlap bows will give a touch of colour. I did use a bow maker for the bows above and adjusted the rods to get a variety of sizes. The Christmas music is now on and Gerard can often be heard singing along. We like to get our jobs done and sit down for a film together about 3 o' clock, it is usually the Christmas channel.
Then I added to the pile some poinsettias adorned with a beautiful button, you do need wired ribbon but again they can be differing sizes. One very quickly becomes two and so on.
I have also added some more soap, this time small Christmas trees. Once again using melt and pour base soap and adding the scent of Christmas tree.
These have been put into a couple of glass jars and a linen stamped topper used to finish it off. The stamp used was a Christmas tree to reflect its contents. The perfect solution to any gift that needs adding to or spares for those unexpected guests.
It certainly is a wonderful time of year. Although I am aware how hard it can be for some. The list is going down quite quickly as I cross each little thing off. At one point I was adding more than I was ticking off, the frenzy before the calm. Are you a list maker? I have added some more Harris Tweed notebooks for that very thing, list making. Another little gift, made with love.
Gerard is going across the moor today for his assessment I will go with him and have a walk around the town and the new An Lanntair display. We are then across again tomorrow as I have an appointment with the Consultant regarding my shoulder which is still very painful.
As always I thank you for your visit, support and comments.
See you soon.
