Late Christmas crafting


Eurgh, I mean you didn't think I was finished did you?! What with all the travelling I've been up to? No chance! And to be fair, how many of you finish everything before the 25th? What about those people you want to give a little something to, but won't get to see until the new year... there's no rush is there? Which is the situation I find myself in, although I'm meeting up with the friend in question this weekend, so I pulled my little socks up and got crafting.


The friend in question has been going through some rough times emotionally, has felt quite lost at times, not knowing which direction to take. I've tried to help but I feel this little reminder of what really matters will help her even more to stay focused. Life has its ups and downs, but surely, there's bigger better things out there that we should concentrate on rather than the multitude of negative thoughts, fighting to get our attention.


So that's my little summary of it all: Live, Love, Hope


What do you reckon?


I hope she likes it!

Oh my goodness, I want to squeal but I won't because I'm sat at my desk and work and eyebrows would be raised. But if I was by myself a small shriek would escape.

It's absolutely beautiful you clever person you. Is that linen that you've used? Argh stop with your creativity - you're too good!

Thank you, but as well, inspiration from Melissa at Checkout Girl! All I did was adapt the design slightly and add the words etc - anyway, thank you! And yes, that's linen I used, the same type I used last time, it's Irish linen apparently (but true to my eco warrior convictions, I only went and bought it in Dubai last year... but then I didn't go there just for the linen!)
