Feeling Festive…

December 18, 2014

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. It takes inspiration from the essence of Christmas to create the ultimate festive feeling that you can have in your home. All you have to do is leave a comment and your email address in the comment box below – you could tell me a festive joke, tell me about your favorite wrapping styles or just say hey! The giveaway will end Sunday (21st December 2014 😉 ) at 6pm, the winner will be picked at random and I’ll announce who has won in Monday’s post. Sadly this giveaway is only open to UK entries – I will try run a world wide giveaway in the new year!IMG_7169IMG_7168

    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!
