Who knew that Aylesbury was a hot bed of musical culture in the 70s and 80s? Well the 93,000 members of the Friars Music Club probably did, but it was a fact lost on me until I visited the Friars exhibition at the Buckinghamshire County Museum recently.
I hope you are nearly there with your present buying and Christmas preparations!
One thing that I always overlook, or don’t really think about until the last minute, is laying and decorating the table for Christmas dinner. If you’re like me you’ll probably rummage through the drawers to find every mis-matching table mat available, then cover the table with candles and maybe some spare foliage or baubles. This year I am a little bit more organised and decided to make some place cards. I designed them digitally in two different designs, so they just need printing off and cutting out. As it’s Christmas I thought I would share them with you.

Since I designed and printed some wrapping paper earlier this year, I have been wondering what else I can do with the patterns I developed for them. First stop, fabric-ville: I got a few of the designs printed onto a cotton linen mix. The fabric, in fat quarters, arrived a few weeks ago and I have just got round to making something out of it, cue some gorgeous cushion covers and tissue holders.
With a little help from some sewing machine experts (mum) this is what we made. The tissue holders are now available on Etsy, with the cushion covers and, who knows, lots of other exciting goodies, will be available in the new year.
I’ve been busy designing wrapping paper lately, and the first batch of the finished designs was delivered last week. It was great to see my designs printed and even better to get to wrap some boxes up with it for a photo shoot. The wrapping paper comes in a pack of two sheets of wrap and there are three varieties; a colourful pattern set, a Christmas set, and a bright set with geometric shapes and guitars. I love them so much I could just frame the sheets as they are! They are available to buy online via Etsy.
