Winter days and Cbloggers Secret Santa

Cbloggers 2016

Isn't this just the cutest thing? It was from Lauren (creator of all things #cbloggers and blogs here) and I was so surprised to receive it in the mail not long after my original secret santa package. It also came with one of her beautiful handmade cards too. At first I thought I'd been given to two people by mistake! It made me feel quite thankful for being part of this online blogging community full of other creatives and it's something I will treasure foooorever. I also love the details you can get through laser cutting... It's something I haven't tried yet but this is making me think otherwise.

A quick doodle! Hot chocolates have to be the best thing about winter ☕️

I hope you've all had lovely days amongst family and friends. I spent Christmas day at home with my family with Disney movies on the tv and so much food, finishing the day all cozied up with my sister watching The Office whilst drinking hot chocolate and Baileys. I received lots of lovely presents and I'm feeling really grateful for what I have in my life right now. The whole Christmas build up has been wonderful for me and just what I needed before the deadline panic sets in! Although, I'm trying not to worry too much because one thing I need less of in 2017 is stress... I'll definitely let you know how long that lasts. 

Susse goodies from Zen

Handmade details

For the Cbloggers Secret Santa I received gifts from the lovely Zen (thank you!) from Hapiness Wherever, a creative blog full of DIY posts. In the package she sent a notebook, badge and greetings card all illustrated by Susse who thanks to Zen I now love for their quirky drawing style. The hand made piece was my name written in copper wire which was really sweet! I loved taking part in the secret santa and Lauren did an amazing job of organising it, it was such a thoughtful idea and a great way to connect with more bloggers especially since I had never read Zen's blog before. 

So, I guess that's it for Christmas this year! When the new year comes around I'll most likely be sharing the best bits of 2016 and some future goals I'm looking forward too. In the meantime, I hope you have a great new years eve whatever your plans are! 😊
