a bit early isn't it?' I hear you shout, not really - less than 50 sleeps to go!

I love this time of year - the beautiful autumn colours and chilly mornings. Now that Halloween is out of the way all roads lead to Christmas!

All designers of Seasonal goods will know - we are all planning at least 3 months ahead. So during summer I was working on my designs for Christmas goods - artwork, giftwrap, greetings cards. Its great to see these designs finally become products and its a very proud moment when orders start to come in. So far I have had orders from the UK and also several parts of the US and its always a thrill for me to think of my designs being shared between friends and family - I love the idea that my design has brightened up someones day.

My designs provide a template for you to add your own photographs making Christmas cards personal and extra special.

if you visit my store on minted you can also see the coordinating stationery - backer, stamp, envelope, wrap.

I am adding to my zazlle site all the time and this is a great site that allows you to combine your own creative talents with my designs.

how are your festive preparations coming along?

whats the most exciting part of the build up?
