Ahhh! Today was the last Christmas post day and now I feel like I can start winding down for Christmas. It's been a crazy season, thank you all who have supported Bonbi Forest this last month or so (indeed, this last year!), you have run me ragged and made me a very happy lady. THANK YOU!!
I have a few things to show you next week and a heads up to look out for too...but before all that: On with the 29 project, days 200 - 211...
Day 200: Thursday 9th December - Where the cat has been. This must have made for some cold paws!
Day 201: Friday 10th December - New things I will be playing with soon! The mirrors that is...I have been waiting to crack on with this little project for MONTHS! January is looking exciting to me, wait and see...(remember that little bird?)
Day 202: Saturday 11th December - How to recycle a fridge: Use it as a store cupboard for bicycle paraphernalia like Mark does. Handy.
Day 203: Sunday 12th December - A day off for Christmas Tree shopping! How exciting is this? A field full of little trees ready to be chopped, decorated and admired. We followed this by a roast with friends and then watched, like the reality TV fans we pretend we are not, the X-Factor final. A very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday.
Day 204: Monday 13th December - We decorated the tree! I love this time of year.
Day 205: Tuesday 14th December - Scarf tags. I am very happy with these:
Day 206: Wednesday 15th December - Ugh! A little corner of the studio chaos...when all the packing is done and the tees and jewels re-stocked I may find time to clear some of this chaos away! The rest of the studio is mainly piles of tees and far, far, far too many cardboard boxes for a room this size...
Day 207: Thursday 16th December - Bjorn Wiinblad plaques! After seeing a friend's completed collection earlier in the year I have really wanted to start my own...They are a lovely set of twelve (more about which I will have to create a whole new post for!) and these are my first two. I have more on the way and I can't wait, L O V E them!
Day 208: Friday 17th December - A rare kind of beauty. This stunner is the angel that perches atop my folk's Christmas tree every year. I think she may be older than me. Check out her stylish stapled dress and her coquettishly angled halo!
Day 209: Saturday 18th December - This last weekend Mark and I took lots of Bonbi goodies down to the Jubilee Wharf Christmas fair in Penryn for two days. It's always a fun fair and it's really nice to go back and catch up with some old faces and see some of my favorite customers who come back year on year. Here I am showing you my best pulling in the punters face:
Day 210: Sunday 19th December - Jewels at the fair. I always like how they look all hanging together...
Day 211: Monday 20th December - Good colours. Back to packing the last few orders and I liked how these unfolded jewellery pouches looked lined up like this. Pretty.
I think that's enough for now...I will be back with more and a few peeks of the things you can expect in the shop soon. I hope everyone has a good few days finishing off the last of their shopping and wrapping and general festive preparations!
