Have a Very Country Living Christmas

Have a Very Country Living Christmas

Huge thanks to Country Living magazine for featuring my Mini Journals in their Christmas Gift Guide. If you haven't seen it yet, do check out the December issue; it's packed full of inspiring gift suggestions, advent projects to make and heartwarming stories of seasonal festivities from rural communities up and down the country. 

Country Living is well known for championing independent designers and makers and well-loved for it too; their support makes a world of difference to small-scale makers like me, and for those looking for quality items to gift their loved ones, there's no place better to find inspiration. 

My Mini Journals are made in the same fine goatskin as my larger books, but in an adorable size and a modest price - £10. I make them in a range of colour combinations and they're great to tuck into Christmas stockings or handmade crackers. Your loved one will enjoy them whether they're perched on a desk, popped into a pocket or carried in their bag. 

As one recent customer said: "I am enchanted by them".

Happy Christmas whether its your heart or your muddy boots that are in the country, and thank you for choosing to share the joy of handmade items with your loved ones - and yourself, of course.
