Christmas pompom angel decorations

It’s December already, so Christmas isn’t far away! Yay! I love everything about Christmas, from braving the shops to find the (as close to) perfect gift whilst listening to shopping centre Christmas carols, to putting up our lights and decorations, and walking around the streets seeing what other houses have done with their lights and decorations. And I love wrapping presents….just not really late on Christmas Eve!

If you follow my Facebook page, you may have seen a few little things I have shared lately, although I will probably share them here too quite soon 🙂

Today I have for you Pompom angels. They are very cute, colourful, fluffy angels and I have tied them with black satin ribbon. Last year I made a string of these, which hang by our front door. I will be making a few more in yellow and white to match our colours for this Christmas, and hang them in our back windows.

It’s amazing how the simple pompom can be transformed 🙂

As you can see there are many colours to choose from. I am selling them for AUD5 each, plus postage. You can contact via my Contact page, or send me a message through Facebook.

I haven’t seen anything quite like these in the shops before, have you?

Simple but effective Christmas gifts

I have a beautiful group of friends among whom Christmas cards are shared. I’m not much of a Christmas card sender, but I do try to make an effort 🙂

Most of them are interstate or in New Zealand and, for the most part, we have never met in person. We were/are members of a particular website, and ‘met’ via the forum where we found we had similar interests, likes, and values.

So, my goal was to find something that I could make, that was flat and easy to post, and was a bit special.

I decided on these cute little star ornaments, then thought the ornament hangers would be a perfect accompaniment. I have to finish up the last few, then I can finally get them in the mail.

I know quite a few of the girls will read this, sorry to ruin the surprise, but I hope you enjoy them x

Do you have a special group of friends that you send cards and/or gifts to? What do you find is a popular item to send or receive?
