Creative Life - A Very Merry Creative Christmas To You!

Merry Christmas Creative Humans!

As you have probably been able to tell from my recent posts, Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year to get creative. From Baubles to Baking, its just the perfect excuse to live out ALL of your creative cravings.

This post is a quick round-up of all the the Christmassy things I've been up to this year. I'd love to hear what you've been doing too!

Manchester Christmas Market
This is me and my sister in the pouring rain (typical!) at Manchester Christmas Market. Still, like true Northerners we stuck with it and saw some amazing crafty and foodie stalls!

Advent Cards
I brought out my downloadable Advent Cards towards the end of November. I loved designing & using these!

ALL the Chocolate
Christmas = Chocolate. I loved making chocolatey treats for friends and family! I've not had a lot of time to bake this year, so I made simple stuff instead! Crispy cakes, rocky road & hot chocolate <3

Mini Baubles DIY Decorations
These cute mini baubles were so easy and fun to do, and I loved using them on my christmas gifts too!

Illustrated Advent
As a personal project this year I decided to do a little illustration for every day of advent. I posted them on my instagram each day.

Creative Christmas Gift Wrapping
Theres not many things that I enjoy more in life then putting on Elf/Home Alone/Love Actually and wrapping all of my christmas presents. Its a personal goal to get more creative with my wrapping every christmas! I used a load of different ribbons & mis-matched wrapping papers to personalise each present and used my mini baubles as gift toppers!

Decking the halls!
I've moved house recently and it was so nice putting the Christmas decorations up in the new place! I couldn't resist making a little paper hat & scarf for our ceramic giraffe! And I used my cute little baubles for the mini tree in the kitchen.

Creative Makes - Christmas 2017 - Mini Baubles

There is nothing that makes me happier than walking down the christmas decoration aisle and basking in the immaculately colour themed baubles all lined up. However, what makes me even more happy is the trend towards more unique, fun and personal decorations. 

For christmas this year I decided to try out decorating my own baubles. I bought these mini white baubles on Amazon, and a couple of Sharpie permanent markers (I used these fine point ones), and basically just went crazy! It was really fun to try and come up with a unique design for each little bauble. 
Perfect for the christmas tree and to use as christmas present decorations!
