Feeling Festive…

IMG_7162I’d like to start with a festive joke –

What is the best Christmas present in the world?


A broken drum, you just can’t beat it!

ha ha ha… ok one more…

What do they sing at a snowman’s birthday party?

Freeze a jolly good fellow

Ok back to the post at hand – This year I’ve been super organised, I’ve brought and wrapped all of my presents, they are sitting pretty under my tree. After looking around on Pintrest for some wrapping inspo, I opted for my all time favorite of classic brown paper (I have a slight obsession with brown paper note books). I also illustrate my own Christmas cards each year and thought that it would be nice to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to the wrapping. As well as customising each individual present I added red and white bows and string – to give it that extra Christmasy feel!
Also make sure you read below about entering my festive giveaway!!

IMG_7190IMG_7186I’ve been spoilt by the team over at Zalando with the cutest cookies I’ve ever seen! When they offered to send me a sweet treat, I hadn’t imagined such a cute sweet treat. Just look at that instagram cookie and not to mention this years most coveted pink coat. Gold stars to the Zalando team!IMG_7179IMG_7184 IMG_7194IMG_7197As a special treat to ya’ll I’ve teamed up with HOF to run a festive giveaway, you can win yourself a Linea Winter Spice scent set.

    I like wrapping with brown craft paper, too, there’s so many things you can accessorize it!

    I’d love to win this. My wrapping skills are non-existent – all my presents look like they’ve been wrapped by blind monkeys. But at least they’re done!

    Your illustrations are ace! I was very organised this year and I’m not sure why, it is very out of character!
