Festive thoughts & my addiction to glitter....

 It is the season for celebrating. Whether you celebrate Christmas, the Winter solstice or any other wintertime festive occasions: I wish you all a very Happy Holiday, Happy Christmas & A Happy New Year 2015!
 As you can see from the photos, the last couple of months my creativity has been primarily focused on making jewellery, beaded cards, bookmarks & lots of sparkly things :-)

 I have been blessed, this second half of the year, to be well enough to really grow my little home jewellery design & craft business. It does mean that I have been a little slack with my blogging & for that I apologise. I have kept in touch a bit more on my facebook pages CreativelyWellCreations & WrightStory. I also now regularly post on my Creativelywell Instagram page. But blogging is my first love and I hope to blog more regularly again in the New Year.

Other than jewellery & crafts the recent weeks have been full of Birthday celebrations & Christmassy events. This year was my son's last primary school nativity & carol service. Very emotional to come to the end of a special era. Yet as they grow they are involved in new beautiful things. For instance my daughter singing carols for the elderly & my son playing his guitar for the first time in public at a candlelit service. 
 One of the best parts of this time of year is time spent with friends. Games evenings, craft sessions, sitting around an open fire and having everyone over for dinners, drinks etc....  Lots of people have Christmas parties to go to and some of these photos show items made to match people's dresses. I love designing things especially to suit an occasion and/or outfit. The best bit is when people are happy & enjoy wearing my creations as much as I enjoy making them.

 I like making fun festive wear too - like Christmas charm bracelets or the jingly bells earrings below. They always seems to encourage a smile and a giggle.

Christmas Eve tomorrow and the excitement level is increasing in my home. I'm looking forward to us all giving each other our full attention over board games, dinners, cards, crafts and winter beach/coastal visits. Those times with the children are precious and make lovely memories. I also love having the house decorated. I am a glitter & bling addict, like a magpie attracted to the pretties! I do think fairy lights and a decorated tree are magical. And yes, I still believe in Santa.

What ever & however you celebrate this winter festive season, I wish you happiness, warmth and love. I also wish you lots of opportunities to be creative.
