Right, I have just finished my first Secret Santa make for this year... am rather relieved as it does have be in the post by Friday.
I am only sharing them with you because the person they are made for does not read my blog, so will not know that they are on their way. However, I am now worrying, what if they are like me and do not drink tea... then I thought, what the heck, it just means they have a present to pass on for next year!
Best of all a friend, Elaine who has the amazing Victorian classroom at the bottom of her garden, gave me a bag of red buttons and beads back in the Summer and I was able to use a broken bracelet for the holly berries. And if you want to make your own for a Secret Santa gift, here is the tutorial.
Now here is my second secret, when I was seven I thought that I had made the shocking discovery that there was not Santa Claus as I noticed that his handwriting on my gift tags on Christmas morning looked exactly like my mother's... I challenged her on this from my little truckle bed and quick as a flash she told me that Santa Claus had actually gone to her school and that was why they both wrote in the same immaculate Copperplate hand. So, now I can can exclusively reveal that Santa Claus went to a Loretto Convent just outside Dublin, and I know this is true as my mum would never lie to me, would she?
It's good to share...
