So, it’s all over now again for another year!

Did you give or receive any handmade gifts for Christmas this year?  If you did, please let us know what is was, and who made it!

Also, did you have a white Christmas or just a very cold Christmas?  Snow or no snow, I hope it was a happy one!

Hopefully by now you have found, bought, or made all your presents, and have them all wrapped up – ready for the best part – giving!

We are getting closer every day, so if you haven’t got all your Christmas Cards written yet, today might be the day to sort the last ones.  If you are buying handmade presents this year, there’s no need to stop with that – you can find loads of lovely handmade cards on Folksy.com, all made in the UK by independent designers.

I have my own new designs for 2010 for sale in my Original Minnie Folksy SHOP.

Each design features pretty varigated holly photos taken by me, printed, cut, and then finished with a juicy red berry button.

Every card comes with an envelope made from recycled paper, and packaged in an eco-friendly ‘compostable’ clear bag made from corn starch, NOT plastic!

Handmade for £1.50 each, or buy in bulk and save money with 3 cards for £4.  If you would like to mix and match designs just message me and I can sort it for you!

Happy New Year!

Here’s to 2010…

Happy New Year 2010

Just a quick type to wish you all a very happy New Year for 2010!

It will be interesting to see what will happen, what creations are made, and where 2010 takes Original Minnie…  I am in the process of researching fairs and dates at the moment, so am looking forward to a new year of events and new year of designs!  Keep checking here for updates of new events as they are confirmed…

I also wanted to say a (belated) Merry Christmas, and hopes of happy festivities all round.

And finally, a big Thanks for everyone’s support from 2009, and here’s to the future!
