More Christmas inspiration!!

Are you all bursting at the seams with Christmas excitement? Or are you still in the throes of celebrating Fall?

I’m a Christmas girl at heart – you know that excited butterflies-in-the-tummy feeling you get when you think about your hobbies or you’re at a quilt show? I get those same butterflies when I think about Christmas and Christmas crafting! So I am in seventh heaven at this time of year when all the Aussie craft magazines are packed to the brim with festive projects!

A friend told me that she’d seen my Christmas ornament on the front of Handmade magazine… so I promptly went out to purchase a copy!

Christmas Robins 1

There it is! Christmas Robins, a tree ornament that some of you may recognise from its reveal on Among the Gum Trees, last year.

This Country Christmas Crafts edition of Handmade also features a wonderful profile of my dear friend, Kerryanne English; together with sweet projects from other bloggy friends including Kris, Barb and Fee!

Here’s what to look out for in your newsagents:

Handmade mag Christmas

Talking of Fee – have you visited Among the Gum Trees this week? Fee is offering a sweet and useful project for her festive freebie this year.

The Gum Tree gals are back in full swing celebrating the lead-up to Christmas with weekly free projects, recipes and ideas. Aren’t they a gorgeous bunch of darlings? I have taken a sabbatical from the Gum Trees for the rest of this year, and its very exciting to be on the ‘other side of the fence’ viewing all the weekly delights in anticipation of what is to follow! The Gum Trees will also host a couple of very special guest designers this year! Can my “To do list” handle it?!!!! We’ll sure give it a try!!! :-)

I’m off to a craft show tomorrow! Wa-HOO!! And I’ve got some more Chrissy crafting to share with you too!

Until next time! Enjoy the festivities!!!

Hugs! Vikki :-)

I love Christmas too - but after so many years of pressure to create the perfect gift, I'm just burned out on making for it. I still love to create Christmas gifts, but without the pressure.
Congrats on your beautiful ornament getting published! I'm going to miss you at the Gum Tree, sweetie!

So here we all are in print again Vik. Seems we were all taken by surprise. I didn't receive a magazine either and only knew about the article via a customer enquiry. It's a great issue full of crafting friends.
