Christmas is all about giving. I know the season is hectic for everyone and there’s always a last minute rush to get things done in time for the break – if you’re lucky enough to have one! However, I wanted to share a few charity appeals and local drives with you. There’s never a wrong time to think of others and I think that’s even more the case during Christmas. It should be a joyful time for everyone but sometimes, it’s not. So here are a few ways to help others in need this Christmas. Your festive random acts of kindness through letter writing, if you will.
I am really excited about today’s post. It combines two things I adore: cardmaking and Harry Potter. I have used a few products from some of my favourite companies too, which just makes the whole thing even more fun. These cards are relatively easy to make. However, some of these products might be hard to source so you may have to get a little creative if you wanted to create your own. With the same products, I made a small variety of different cards. I really wanted to try and find a few different ways to do this, so the process was not repetitive. So, without further ado, for the fifteen day of Blogmas, let me present to you my Harry Potter Christmas Cards!
For any event or holiday, planning in advance can make things a bit easier and less stressful. Christmas is no exception to the rule. It’s a very widely celebrated holiday that does take up quite a bit of time, effort and money. Planning – and budgeting properly – can make a huge difference to your mental wellbeing throughout the month and afterwards. Everyone’s Christmas Planner will look different, based on what you do and how you celebrate the holiday but I wanted to share mine in the hopes that it might give you some ideas. I have also included a free downloadable template that I used in my planner, in case you wanted to do the same.
Every year, the Royal Mail bring out the new Christmas stamps. They alternative between a religious themed set and a secular set. 2019’s Christmas stamps take a religious approach, bringing the nativity story alive. I quite like the style of this year’s collection. There are eight different stamps in the collection. It is very colourful, featuring beautiful paper-cut art and illustrations. You may have already seen these around but I wanted to share them with you, in case you hadn’t.
This year, I decided to get a little crafty whilst making some gifts for people. I really enjoy writing letters to people – even if they are super short. Often, it takes more time and effort than buying a gift and it’s really the thought that counts for me. So, I came up with a way to combine my love for letterwriting with Christmas. I decided to make one of my friends a DIY Advent Calendar this year. This could easily be changed up for occasion – or just as a random gift – though, in all honesty.
