Christmas Cracker!

I love the idea of making your own Christmas crackers! The gifts can be easily chosen for every guest at your dinner table...what could be better than a Christmas cracker crafted especially for you!

The Christmas cracker kit from Stix2 has everything you need to make your very own personalised crackers and they are so easy to put together.

It's great fun to decorate them to fit in with your Christmas could even personalise them for your guests. I personally think you can beat a bit of ribbon, bakers twine...and of course buttons!

Vintage Card Suitcase

I recently rescued this gorgeous suitcase that was destined for the skip! The suitcase belonged to my Mother In Laws Great Aunt and it has certainly travelled and seen a good deal of life!
I coloured some wooden letters with a Promarker and glued them to luggage labels. Lace was attached to the suitcase pocket and the tags pegged to the suitcase with wooden pegs decorated with pearls.
I can't wait for the suitcase to be used!
I would love to know what you think..
