1st December

I just love Christmas! It's the inner child, I love the cosy log fires, the excuse to eat mince pies and the magic in the air. 

It's a busy time of year for us potters, I am full time in my studio, busy making bowls, candles, egg cups, mugs and dishes. I love the buzz of being busy and knowing that most items I make will be Christmas presents under the tree, it gives me a fuzzy feeling.

My dog often wanders in my studio, thinking, are you still here!

Looking out I see the stillness of the fields, the cold crisp blades of grass bracing themselves for the night time frost. 

At the weekends I fill my house with the scent of essential oils that I blend for my soy candles, the rich Christmas spice is my favourite. 

Daily I wrap orders lovingly with tissue and twine adding my swing tag and a personal note. 

I hope December gives you all that you wish for and happy dreams that come true.
