Christmas day is five weeks today. Eek – five is that all… surely not?! Despite the fact that it happens at the same time every year and we know it’s coming it always seems to catch some of us by surprise. Well if you’re one of those and you still need some inspiration for some Christmas makes there are plenty of bead and ornament goodies around and here’s a little round up of some of my favourites…
