Get Cracking on Christmas - December 2021

Peeps! It's December - can you believe it?! 

It has been a crazy year and personally, I am delighted that it's coming to an end! The next few weeks will hopefully finally be somewhat nice, although very very hard emotionally - there will be lots of people missing this year on my Christmas list :0( Thankfully, the Christmas joy that having children brings will somewhat balance it out! 

If you are new to Get Cracking on Christmas, please check out Jenn's blog here - she is the master-mind behind this initiative, and is the best one to explain it! :o)

I have to tell you - the idea of making a few (or even one!) Christmas card each month has worked wonders for me, and whilst it might be somewhat awkward at times to create christmassy or wintery scenes in the middle of spring or summer - there's nothing awkward or stressful about having a pile of cards ready to go, come late November/early December! Therefore, I will most definitely be joining in next year again. Do you want to join our Christmas crew, too? Get in touch with Jenn! 

Today's card is something that I started working on weeks ago, and never fully finished... I am still not 100% sure if it's finished to my liking or not, but the longer I faff with it, the less ideas I seem to have, so I'll just leave it as is at this point. 

What do you think?

It is quite masculine, and not girly & cutesy, and I think this is why I am so unsure about this design, LOL! Either way, I am delighted with how the reindeer's nose turned out! 

If you want to see all my makes from 2021, please check out the blog post here.

I am not sure if I will be posting here before the end of the year, apologies for my lack of activity in 2021, I truly hope that 2022 will be truly craftylicious! 

In the meantime - I hope you have a lovely Christmas (even if it's a bit of a sad one, like mine, but let's find some hope and comfort in this celebratory time!), and a fabulous New Year 2022! Here's to a really really healthy and safe one!

Stay safe and crafty,
