For Easter I prefer to paint eggs rather than buy chocolate eggs, simply because I think it’s a bit more personal.
When it comes to Christmas gifts, I must confess I’m resigned to simply purchasing them. Easter has a gifting theme, I guess, which implicitly narrows the scope of what’s available to be gifted, which is good for craft.
Christmas doesn’t follow this pattern.
Being so open ended, Christmas gifts can be just about anything, and, being anything for anyone, craft tends to be forgotten about.
For Kris Kringle this year at OrderMate, we were given the brief of ‘Mouse-Pad’. At first I groaned at the thought of trawling websites, going through thousands of ‘yeah, not quite’ options, then the thought struck me: This is a perfect opportunity for craft!
Tada! I could yak on about it but, you know what? I’ll let the video do the talking. Tips are in the Craft page.
Merry Christmas Sarah!
