    I am excited and can’t wait to start organising For Christmas. It is my favourite time of year and although I am generally fairly well organised, the past few months have left me totally unorganised with piles of washing and cleaning and I’m looking forward to getting it all back together. My mum passed away 3 weeks ago, so it will be a new experience for all our family this Christmas and anything to make it go more smoothly is very appreciated.ReplyCancel

    I did a tutorial a few years back for a craft/food thing I’ve made every Christmas for nearly 30 years! Lolly Holly is great for kids to make and really jazzes up your Christmas wrapping or is a great little present for kids to give their friends.

    I hope you don’t mind – I’ve included the link below if you’re interested and I’d be happy if you choose to share it (or just try it with your own kids)!
