Christmas Charity Challenge

Do you know it's only 47 days until Christmas today!! I have no idea where this year went.......

Just to add to the huge pile of projects you probably already have underway for Christmas I thought I would bring your attention to the amitie Christmas Charity Challenge.

You can use any materials you like - paper mache, clay, wood, card, origami, knitting, crochet, felt and of course fabric!

For some inspiration try here or here.

Here are some I made for a swap a couple of years ago.

The Girls!

And here are some that were sent to me.

So if you or maybe your kids have a few minutes spare during November, please consider making an ornament to hang on the amitie tree. All the proceeds will go to a really great local charity that helps give less privileged kids a bit of a break. And if you are a local, we'd love you to join us for a drink on the 30th November to see them all get hung on the tree ready for sale.

Good luck with all your other Christmas preparations. I would so love to be organised this year .......

What a wonderful idea. I look forward to checking it out! My family and I are already planning on hosting a card-making open-house in late November so that family and friends can stop by and make a holiday card that we will then send to "Cards For Kids" who will distribute them to children in shelters and hospitals.
