Hello and Happy December!
A little later than usual, but better late than never - my new desktop wallpaper for all the lovely people on my mailing list has been mailed out today, so please keep an eye out for it in inboxes.
This month embraces winter and hopefully sets a beautiful festive mood featuring a nordic reindeer in the snow.

In other news for December, Folksy have created a lovely little animation for the festive season to showcase products from their makers. It's part of their '12 Days of Folksy' over on their social media. You are able to view the first scene from the film over at Folksy's Instagram. Along with the film, they are running giveaways from featured makers throughout the 12 days.
I'm so happy to say my 'But First Tea' print has been included in the film and giveaway. To be in with a chance of winning this print, you can follow Folksy here:
I wish you all a very wonderful festive month!
