Have you ever made your Christmas gifts? As you can imagine, I have in the past. Most years it’s been something really nice and festive to do but I do remember with a real lack of fondness, the year I was far, far too ambitious! I even roped Nick in and the poor boy spent an entire day cutting the pages I had designed for my tear notepads. Then the frosted glass spray paint didn’t work for the personalised bottles I’d dreamt up, peeling off as it dried and I had to come up with a different idea on the fly to rectify this disaster. See, even DIY bloggers have fails sometimes and needless to say the whole day wasn’t the most enjoyable.
