countdown to the 'ber' months...

There's a little twinge of excitement around here during what my husband calls the 'ber' months - septemBER, octoBER etc - it means that Christmas is nearly here! Christmas is my all time favourite time of year because not only is there merriment among my own family and friends but there is a general air of excitement in the greater community and all around the world people get a little festive! This feeling of unity brings me a great sense of warmth, comfort and general happiness and what better way to maintain that feeling than to share it? This year I have taken the handmade pledge which means all my nearest and dearest will be receiving gifts lovingly handmade by my family - will it be bunting? will it be cookies? will it be my secret special boozy fruity chocolate puddings? We'll have to wait and see where inspiration takes us!
If you think of this concept on a local/global level, it really is an awesome idea - not only will you be indulging yourself in creative heaven, you'll also be giving something from the heart and reducing the impact of the environment at this super consumerist time of year. So if you're interested, take the pledge! Check it out at
