Get Your Christmas Craft On!

Theres something about Christmas that brings out the craftiness in most of us!  I guess its all the gift-giving and entertaining.  It's a great time of year to stretch your creative legs and get your hands a little dirty!  

I've been asked by the Etsy Australia blog to write a DIY Christmas craft post as part of their advent calendar style Christmas craft frenzy!  Very exciting!  The idea is that every day of December, they are featuring a different craft idea on the blog for us to try at home.  I'll be posting a tutorial for creating your own gift wrap and gift tags using something we all have in our cupboards - the humble potato!  Potato printing is a simple form of relief printing which requires no specialised equipment, and the results are surprisingly pretty and festive.  Because I'm a native flower nut, I've gone with some of my favourite Australian flowers as the motifs.  

I'll be posting a "how-to" here on my own blog as well, early in December.  

So enjoy the countdown to Christmas and get ready to turn your potatoes into prints ...
