I'm halfway through making my last batch of lavender bags this year. But I don't enjoy filling… https://t.co/JmjPYbcPh5
Today had all the good vibes. Delivering lampshades made me feel like a Christmas elf, then one of my besties did a choir performance with my daughter in it at school, and this evening I’ve met up with the @amberleyartisans to eat mince pies and talk 2019 by a toasty wood-burner at Clare’s, which very handily happens to be a few doors down from my house. But most of all this morning’s frost, and the light, did it for me. I really hope we wake up to more tomorrow. I’m not big on snow, if it goes on and on, but frost is right up my street.
It has been a lampshade finishing and nativity watching, type of week here. It’s a while since I did any shades. Ready for their new homes in time for Christmas :)
Here’s one just for you @colin_awg as I know you like this exact spot
Skies to die for on Minchinhampton Common today

Finally some colour on the greatest of grey days!
@loutonkin you inspired me to pull some (half dead) bits from the garden when the youngest was still listening to an audio book in the car. The ribbon clashes but it’ll do!
And now for something completely different... my second cd cover for the wonderful people that are @playcircle_uk is back from the printers! I first drew these characters for Playcircle when my eldest was a toddler, and it’s lovely to be drawing them again. The super talented Playcircle crew have been bringing musical magic to endless children around Stroud, and now this CD is out they can spread it further. If you’re a parent who would prefer beautiful folk singing harmonies to nauseating nursery rhymes... you need Playcircle in your life! Send a DM to @playcircle_uk to find out how to buy. I couldn’t recommend it enough.
And we’re done! That’s the end of my Christmas shows this year... time to get on with everything I’ve been neglecting! Personally, thanks to all my lovely fellow Amberley Artisans for making it so enjoyable, and to my family for freeing up my time to be involved, and of course to all the shoppers that came. Many of them, my lovely friends.
This week I will aim to get some special Christmas offers going on remaining stock. So watch this space if you’re interested.
