Woo hoo! first blog post of 2012!! How very efficient of me!
Here is Our Home Made Christmas Presents Received blog to follow on from our 'Given' blog a few days ago.
Considering the time restraints with this little project I think we all did a jolly good job!
From mum and dad we got a chicken clock, here's a picture of it sat next to my brothers VW home made version he got from them.
My mum went on a felting course last year and she put the things she learnt to good use on this bag, absolutely love it!
The best gifts I have to admit came from my brother and his girlfriend Katie.
The first of which was this creation;
I've wanted a bird table in my front garden for a while so this was just perfect, and Mr Robin our main front garden resident has already staked his claim on it. It will be interesting to see what other birds attend the garden over the next few months.
We also got this stunning chopping board - perfect for our kitchen and its chicken parafanalia!
Katie also made me some of her lovely soap. Katie makes all of her soaps at home and sells them (Helping Hands Company), she is a truly talented lady. For presents I got Cucumber and Mint soap, and Apple and cinnamon. She does many different types if you would like more information on her or any if her soaps please contact her at the following email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
They make great favours at weddings etc for all of you that are getting married at some point soon! ;)
Son qall in all I love all of my presents that were made! Roll on this year, apparently the mission is home decorated festive jumpers!! Should be highly entertaining!!!! Maybe Mel and I should make each other one for gifts!?
All the best!
