Christmas Makes 2014!

Hello there - I've not had much chance to blog lately as I was busy organising a Handmade Christmas Market and of course making things for my stall at that market!

The Christmas market was last Saturday and was a great success.  We had some fantastic sellers and a brilliant crowd of people that came along to support us.  It was a very busy day and everyone that took part enjoyed themselves.

Now I can relax and have time for other things like Christmas shopping!  Yikes I have only just started mine!!  Will be off into town today to try and get as much done as possible!

Yesterday I made my Mincemeat Christmas cake - I just need to feed it lots of brandy and get some marzipan to cover it with!  We don't like icing so it will just be marzipan for us!  Very easy recipe and you can find it here.  It's a quick and easy alternative to traditional Christmas cake!

I thought I would share with you some of the tree decorations that I have made this year.

I also made my flannel reindeers - this year I used a variety of coloured pipe cleaners including red and white candy cane!

I also made some flannel crackers with soap inside of them as well.

I still have some great items available that are suitable for stocking fillers, Secret Santa, tree gifts etc over on my Facebook page Bumble Bee's Craft Den - pop on over if you are still looking to buy gifts!!

Well - I had better get myself prepared for some Christmas shopping now!!
