One of life's very simple pleasures is un-ravelling wrapping paper to reveal something beautiful, unique and hand-made with absolute love. So now the season is upon us to seek out presents for those we love. Why would you go to the high st when you know there is a wealth of people making wonderful things some of them, right under your nose.
So I thought I would put a list together of makers/ artists some I know very well, some just a little but what I am really sure of is that they make work with devotion and care.
So over the next week I will share with you my 12 makers of Christmas. Hopefully they might just tempt you!
