The Works drawers I have used for the project below are currently on offer in The Works at just 2 for £20 which is a saving of £5 per set, making the project a little more economical.  I understand that this offer is until this coming Sunday but don't quote me.

I have looked online but the drawers are not reduced on there - so it may be available in the shops only.

I was disappointed to miss out on a Flash Hobbycraft sale of 25% on everything last week ....... needless to sale the Advent House I posted last week had sold out when I got there!

Another Advent Calendar Started

I have finally got off my bum and started another drawer Advent Calendar using the last of my wooden drawer blanks from The Works (£15) ….. and my crafting area has now been declared an official tip!

I am hoping to get two drawers done a week, while still working on other Christmas ideas.

My intention was also to work mainly in blues and greys so this set of drawers is quite different from the first one, however I have to admit it’s a hard shout as I am already finding that I am automatically gravitating towards background papers that are red and green, the idea of blues and greys just isn’t gelling.

But these first drawers have turned out pretty well, although I can almost guarantee that I will go back to them at least once to add a tiny bit of  something else, even if it’s just a sprinkling of glitter or a dollop of Glossy Accents before I am 100% happy.  Less is more is a rule that goes out of the window at Christmas!
