2 days to Christmas

23 Dec

If all this talk of Buying Handmade for Christmas has inspired you, there are lots of places on the web now where you can purchase direct from the maker all year round for birthdays, anniversarys, thank yous, or just to treat yourself.  If you have a creative hand, you can even set up your own shop!

4 days to Christmas

21 Dec

How cool is this?

You will perhaps have already wrapped all your presents for Christmas this year, but throughout 2011 when you are buying gifts, you may want to wrap it in something a bit different.

I think the wrapping paper from Rapping Paper definitely sticks in the mind.  The concept of UK independent designer Si Hill, this paper is especially great for music lovers!
