Hi lovelies! I wanted to start this post off with saying a huge thank you to the comments I received underneath my previous post, it was so nice to have open arms and a warm welcome back into the blogosphere! As you can see, my usual blogging routine is yet to get back in full swing, but I can finally share with you the current madness that is my life. For some bizarre reason, I thought the lead up to Christmas wasn't chaotic enough, so I decided to move house and get a new job at the same time. *insert weary emoji here*. This unfortunately has led to my festive plans, both online and offline, being shunned aside, but it will all be worth it in the end, right?! (that's what I keep telling myself anyway)...During the current madness, I did manage to squeeze one event into my schedule: a Christmas craft workshop with John Lewis! I was kindly asked to choose an item from their gorgeous range of soft knit festive jumpers for me to personalise and get crafty with! Now, I'll be the first to admit - arts and crafts is not my strongest point. In fact, me + crafting typically = garish disaster, so I really wanted to make an effort with this and prove myself wrong. I decided to go for the Mistletoe* jumper as I love the subtlety and whimsicalness of it. Grey seems such a mundane shade for clothing, but I've really been enjoying the current rise of light grey shades lately and the sharp, classic look it provides. Faced with a sea of goodies from the John Lewis haberdashery shop, it was time to get stuck in! The textured finish of the mistletoe inspired me to add further pom poms to liven things up a bit. I then decided to add another dimension with a layered hem. I've been loving hemlines that are a bit different this season, from scalloped shapes and lace details, I knew this was something I wanted to touch on. I guess you could call my additions minimal and I was one of the first to complete my jumper, but in my eyes small touches like this make a big difference and I know I'll get a lot of wear out of it. During the evening, we also had the opportunity to customise a plush stocking*, however, I decided to leave mine as it was as I was happy with my jumper and didn't want to tempt fate! I'm so pleased I decided to make time to attend this event - it was so fun meeting other bloggers and, of course, being served my first pig in blanket and mince pie(s) of 2016 was a major celebration! Happy Christmas jumper day for this Friday (16th) guys! What do you think of this jumper? Will you be rocking one this Friday? *Products marked with an asterix (*) have been gifted.
