TIME TO DECK THOSE HALLS!

Hello! Happy December!
Has Christmas arrived in your house yet?? I LOVE that everyone is starting early this year – we definitely broke my own rules and bought the tree a week ago!
To celebrate opening the 4th door of our advent calendars, we thought we’d treat you lovely lot to a round up of the fabby decs and cards on offer this year.

Lets start with the decorations – here is a little list of 10 of my current faves!!

1 – HAYLEY VICTORY

Hey let’s start with some brights shall we?! (Unlike me I know.)
Self confessed colour enthusiast Hayley brings so much joy with her beautiful creations – if tassels and rainbow coloured felt are your jam, pop over to her shop to take a peek!

So there you have it – I hope you’ve been inspired to get those decs out – from your old crumbly sentimental collection, to your favourite glittery dinosaur, time to let them do their thing!

If you’re buying from small businesses this month, please do bear in mind the posting cut offs and shop as early as you can to allow them to make and ship your goodies!

Happy shopping, and happy December!
