My Creative Roots & the Beginning of Christmas

My creative roots most certainly came from my mum, by far the most creative woman I know. For as long as I can remember she has been crafting or creating for pleasure, business and everything in between. She has provided me with continual inspiration and support through my journey here at Dunne with Style as well, being the ideas woman when I've had one of 'those' creative failures (you can read more about them here), the encouragement and quality control when I create a new project and the second pair of hands I always seem to need in helping prep, pack and post those orders. 

But whilst her levels of creativity are sky high her affinity with technology has never been so loving. But over the past 12 months she has had a 'coming of the tech-age' and equipped herself with every Apple product one could need, fell in love with online shopping and recently decided she'd like to join the 'blogging' world. So with a little help and a few phone calls to me (whats a URL again?) I now find my mum uploading photos and typing blog posts in amongst the usual whir of the sewing machine. 

This year mum has created a little 'family' of Christmas friends which she has for sale through her blog (here) and I am so proud that she now has a platform to share her talents and know that every home needs a little of her Christmas spirit. To celebrate her new blogging venture she is having a little giveaway today (here), so pop over and a little Christmas Creation may be able to join your family for the festive season. 

So as the festive season draws near I look forward to sharing with you what Christmas looks like and means to our family, but here's a little peek of what one corner of my parents magical house looked like last year. 

I hope you are looking forward to the festive season as much as I am and have enjoyed a little look into my Mum's overwhelming Christmas spirit. 

Happy Monday x
