Read on for all the latest news from a festive Dee-Daw land – including some fun stuff like last minute shopping and making mini Christmas stuff – enjoy!
Each new blog entry appears here, with the previous posts available below it – so the very latest news is always the first thing you see!
Don’t tell me – let me guess, you are all organised for Christmas, presents bought and wrapped, the big Christmas food shop done and now you can relax and enjoy the festive season (as much as you can in 2020!)
Well not everyone is so organised (namely me!) Christmas has snuck up on me while I was nose deep in commissions! I just raised my head to touch base with the world and realised Christmas is next week! OMG – PANIC!!!
(Above – a Christmas Scene I dressed last year – it all looks so perfect – I bet Santa has just popped out to check Rudolph is OK in the stables!)
So I have grabbed a few minutes to put together a few things to mark the festive season – The good news is there is still time to pick up a treat in the DEE-DAW SHOP – last posting dates are on the Home page (UK buyers have until the 22nd December and buyers in Europe until 20th December), and to say a little thank you to all my customers (past, present and future!) I have created a 10% DISCOUNT CODE valid for any purchase in my online shop (excluding my Featherstone Hall Hotel book) valid until 31st December 2020 (discount does not apply to shipping cost – only the item cost). Simply type in deedaw10 when purchasing to have the discount applied.
If you are seriously organised and have nothing to do, you might enjoy the FREE CHRISTMAS MINIATURE MAKES from the downloads page of this website. Simply print out, cut out and make – some are simple and some a lot more challenging!
There are two sheets to this month’s Downloads – the first is the actual pieces to print and cut out, and the second is a sheet of instructions how to make up the more complicated pieces as well as how to finish them off and ideas on how and where to display them. Visit the DOWNLOADS page of the MAKES & ADVICE SECTION to get started.
The sheets include Christmas presents, Cards, envelopes, letters to Santa, wrapping paper, party hat and a fabulous (if tricky!) cracker.
Some of the Christmas cards, envelopes and letters to Santa you can make.
Edward just had to get in on the act with his party hat!
Check back in to the website after Christmas as I will be adding a special new gallery page of some of my favourite commissions of 2020 along with a bit of a review of the year in the random thoughts page on the INSPIRATION section.
Until then stay safe and have the best Christmas possible in the current circumstances – fingers crossed for a better 2021!
