My Christmas Crafting Process

Christmas is a busy time of year for Card Makers isn’t it? It certainly is for me. For me, it is by far, the busiest crafting season.

And in my many, many years of making cards, I have developed a system of crafting for Christmas which helps me make sure I get all my crafting for the season done. On time!

It isn't a plan for what I want to make - cards, gifts, decorations etc. I've usually already decided that before I begin.
It's a step-by-step process I use to help me make sure I get everything actually made.

And get it all made in a way that helps me ...
  • to find the time I need. And plan ahead. At every stage, I know exactly how many steps I still have ahead of me. So I always know how much time I will need, (or still need!) to make everything I want. And to know if I really have the time to squeeze anything else in!
  • to use as many of my current supplies as I can &
  • keep my costs down.
  • to stay organised. And stress-free!
  • to do Christmas the way I want to do it : )

It's a process that works regardless of when I start my Christmas crafting. Early in the year. Later in the year.
A process that works regardless of how quickly I move through the steps.
I know that if I follow specific steps, in a certain order, and make time to do them,  it does help me get everything made.

It's a very simple process. It works for me.
And I'm going to be taking you through it in the run-up to Christmas this year : )

Usually, my blog posts for Christmas are about sharing my new designs, posting all the details about them along with some new card ideas. It's the standard across the industry. And it works. You get to see what's new along with some (hopefully) lovely ideas of how you can use them.

But it doesn’t reflect my real Christmas Crafting process.
And this year, I'm going to share how I really do Christmas : )

Love Liz xx
