Nothings sends me around the twist more than Christmas decorations (and I mean that in a good way), although when the magazines release their festive issues it always makes my heart skip a beat. The latest issue of Inside Out mag not only covers all things Christmas, but it manages to mesh the themes of the silly season with one of my other great loves: crafting. Buckle up, Creatives, this is an all-stops train to Blissville that’s sure to inspire you to get your DIY on!
Something really must be said about traditional Christmas colours; they take me right back to being a child in the eighties, before stylists turned the festive season blue and pink and orange and lime green. This year, IKEA has released its Christmas decorations in hues I can’t help but smile over; glorious gold and silver plus a generous dose of green and red. What can I say? I want it all and I need it all – immediately if not sooner! No, really, someone get me to IKEA before I throw a tantrum (just like in the eighties).
