A Hip Handmade Holiday Guide for Xmas

The Craft Pack
Im getting all Christmasy here at My Handmade Heart, I have a small market stall for charity at work coming up soon and im busy making Xmas bunting and gift tags and decorations and thinking about putting some stuff in the store.

Im also prepping our little apartment for the holidays with a Xmas tree drawn in chalk on the inside of our yellow front door, decorated with Polli design decs and a Gods Eye tree topper and finishing off painting pinecones in multicolour harlequin pattern ready for the proper tree to be set up!

I cant reist a bit of colour at this time of year (who am I kidding, I cant resist colour at all!) and usually cant handle the traditional or matchy matchy Xmas colours and themes that seem to repeat themselves every Xmas. I think this is possibly a hangover from my Visual Merchandising days when Christmas started in September and consisted of dust and glitter, "fluffing" trees (yes thats what they call it, I was a great Fluffer!) and garlands and scratches all over my hands and arms, although I have to admit there is still a big part of me that misses it and i've found myself fondly staring at the PO boats sail past our beach recently, even though I hated decorating those the most!

So Christmas is on my brain and I wanted to share this GREAT Xmas Craft pack I found the other day.
Its made guessed it The Craft Pack, the Craft Pack consists of three crafty geniuses that are dedicated to sharing fun, accessible, and well-designed crafts with the world.

The holiday guide they have designed is seriously AMAZING, the projects are unique, funky and modern with a nod to the traditional and for once there are some REALLY great crafty gifts for guys!
Always a hard one only $10!

 Now all I have to do is decide which crafts to make...........and then find the time!
