Yes! I have a few ideas but think I am mostly going to be doing die-cut baubles, decorated with silver and gold bits and pieces, and twinkly stuff.

Yes, but made by the kids so no pressure! Last year I cut out christmas trees on green card and we stuck them on card, DD2 stuck a silver star at the top and DD1 wrote Happy Christmas wonkily on the first five or six then I took over and drew a trunk on the tree.


Might stretch to glittery stuff this year...

I hope to get motivated...and soon to avoid the stress.

I usually just go with the flow and make several different designs of my own. what sort of cards do you make Elizabeth?

I have started crafting recently too, and will be making my own :-)

We always do. Glitter, cards and fun (with children!!). No taste at all but no one seems to care!!

Yes with the wee kids so lots of fun, not much style.

I reuse last years Xmas cards as labels this year. Just cut the front off/ edit to size.

Elisabeth: I used to help out making Xmas cards at the dc nursery school, it was great fun. I made stamps out of sticky back foam, to make a snowman or whatever. They had to paint onto the foam bit with poster paint.

It was quite an intense activity though!
