Episode 9 – Dreaming of a Handmade Christmas

Welcome to podcast episode 9.  Nearly double figures already!  Can you believe it?  This episode is literally busting at the seams with handmade Christmas present inspiration.  I’ve decided make the vast majority of my Christmas gifts this year, so I thought it might be helpful to share some of my present ideas with you.  Also you’ll hear about my latest creative obsession – Pinterest.  Finally, the Guernsey section of today’s show is all about the town of St Peter Port.

So without further ado, click the following link to listen to the show: Episode 9 – Dreaming of a Handmade Christmas

    Oh wow. Love the pics. Will try to get husband to visit Guernsey next year… Maybe for a long week-end!

    Haven’t listened yet – after dinner I will close the door and enjoy the show!

    Another excellent episode! Those photos so make me want to visit Guernsey! It looks like something out of a storybook.

    If you want a glimpse into what Greenpoint, Brooklyn looks like during the holidays,– or any other day of the week, look no further than my favorite Greenpoint blog… (Please excuse the URL name) 😉
    It’s all very slap-dash compared to Guernsey’s lovely decorations. But worth a good chuckle…


    And yes, this is a house on my street… which looks like this all year round! http://www.newyorkshitty.com/greenpoint-goodness/?p=29199

      Thanks Kristin! I loved the link – that house is hilarious. You get the sense that they are cheerful people, at least…! Very cool.

      Looking forward to your next podcast 🙂
