Craft Blog Secret Santa Club

#Craft Blog Club Secret Santa

 

I join in with #craftblogclub on Twitter every Tuesday evening. There’s a really nice mix of people doing a really interesting mix of crafts. Before it started a few months ago Emma from @livepeachy and I exchanged a few tweets about whether it could work and if others would be interested. It seemed like a great idea and the purpose ,we decided, was not to be selling our goods. It was to discuss things.

Emma has taken it from strength to strength , we have topics we discuss, have projects,  show works-in-progress, ask advice and, inevitably, go off on a million tangents! Last week #craftblogclub was even trending!!! There’s success!

 

For December  (a very busy time for crafters) our project was to make a secret Santa gift and Emma told us to whom we were to send it. I struggled to decide what to do. Many of these people do knitting, sewing, painting etc. In the end I decided to print sheets of wrapping paper. I have these lovely replica rollers from Bavaria. A lady found the original ones in a market and decided to have them remade. I have bought most of her designs and it’s taught in my latest  and greatest workshop. It’s completely addictive and so much fun!

 

I received my secret Santa at just the right time. I was putting the finishing touches to my decorations for Christmas when my parcel arrived. In it was a garland which I could add to my existing one, on the stairs, and beef it up a bit. Look at the picture and you’ll see it came ready embellished with cinnamon, red and white glass candy canes and the sweetest red and white toadstools imaginable.
