Achica Christmas

You must have heard of Achica - the luxury members-only shopping site?

They have such beautiful items and amazing designer brands, so I was super-dooper excited when I managed to wangle an invite to their bloggers Christmas crafting breakfast workshop.

It was crafting heaven entering the room - piles and piles of materials and free-rein to make your own decos.

Somewhat intimidated, being next to Maggy, the crafting queen I produced a wreath for my front door with the help of the gorgeous materials provided by Festive.

Then Konesar helped up make fruit garlands with dried orange slices and cinnamon sticks.  The aroma was intoxicating, and we produced impressive looking results really easily thanks to the pre-drilled items.

Finally, I had a lovely chat with the people from Five Dollar Shake who do the most amazing personalised and hand finished greetings cards. All bespoke, we flipped through the catalogues and chatted about designs and styles.  They produced a gorgeous card for me to send to a friend, and I have to say, I'm really impressed with their service.  You can design your card online, approve it and then have it sent either direct to the recipient, or to you so you can write your own personal message in before giving it.

Ahh what a lovely way to spend a morning, and I sprinkled joy and happiness (and a fair bit of glitter) all over everyone on the Piccadilly line coming home!
