I’ve just been sent an AMAZING box full of crafty goodies (all everyday items) to take part in 8 craft activities. From baubles to making your own crackers through to paper lanterns and snowman cakes! I’m incredible excited and can’t wait to get started! I do hope you’ll join in. I look forwarded to tweeting with you Monday! 

The gift list which gives a little more.

A couple of weeks ago I did a Christmas gift list from various stores but I wanted to share with you a gift list where with the gift to the person whose receiving you will also be helping others. My favourites are Traidcraft perhaps because I’ve seen their work first hand in Africa but also their products are rather fabulous too! Just look down at the phone speaker! Just look at some of these amazing ideas from Traidcraft!


For a start I just adore this speaker. The Boozik Iphone Amplifer. It by far beats all the plastic tinny ones out there and the price too! And the best thing? No batteries or cords needed! Just imagine how great this would look in the kitchen or on a desktop.

Next up for the lady in your life. Now I was looking at these ponchos or scarves over a year ago. These Alpaca ponchos are thin but warm and can be tied or buttoned into a variety of styles. They are universal because of this and it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing underneath. Just fling this one and style how you’re feeling that day and you’re stylish, elegant and ready to go! (ps these are half the price of all I’ve seen and of course the money helps others out!)

And as for children. It’s a tough choice between deciding on these dress up dolls or a farmyard set. I think though by far my favourite is the fire engine! The ladders move, you have a lovely set of fireman plus they all store away inside the fire engine! Pretty cool huh!

If I were you I’d take a look over on their site and just look at the amazing gifts you could buy for your loved one while providing much needed help to the creators of them.
