I've mentioned before, a personal Christmas ritual, from childhood was always to have something creative to make. I associate the making with Boxing Day afternoon. Stitch kits, crochet... So I like to have a Christmas make. Over the years I've bought myself all sorts of fun things.... the flower weaving kit to replace one from childhood, a mini portable spirograph, fancy yarn to crochet a scarf. This year I've not bought anything.....
However, I've pinched an idea... I've filled a sketchbook with paint backgrounds, and intend to doodle, play, zentangle, as and if I feel like it. No shortage of sketchbooks in this house, but why did I buy a DL size? Time to put it to use.... so here it is prepped. Between mince pies, chocolate and fizz, it might not get used, but as I spend Boxing Day alone...... I will be happily content to play.
