Whilst Country Living is a nice read, I am preferring the Prima Christmas Makes as it is just crammed full of Christmas ideas, gifts, recipes and crafts. I also got this one last year and am pleased to find that this year's contains just as much inspiration!
I especially love these paper crafts using sheet music -
They're all so easy to do and sheet music should be easy to find online to print off.
I also love these flower pots which have been covered in pretty fabric, again, so easy to do at home - and they'd make a lovely gift.
I could imagine these prettily lined up on a windowsill.
My OH has treated me to an early gift - this Christmas album by Michael Buble -
Some lovely music which really helps set the Christmas mood. It's a great album, with beautiful songs and even some nice traditional choir singing too.
Evenings have been spent cramming in last minute crafting for gift ideas...a little embroidery here, cross stitch there...
And since a lot of my crafting of late is for gifts, I have to be careful what I show you on here!
I was very excited to have had my first mince pie of the season too, and homemade!
