New Years Resolutions!

So, with a week to go before Christmas and after the craziness of the past few weeks Neil and I decided that we had perhaps better do some Christmas shopping!
Baby sitter in situ (cheers Nanny!) off we went last night. Now I like to class myself as a professional Christmas shopper as I have done it on my own for the past few years, focussed with a list of who we need for, dont get in my way!
However, Neil likes to look and think, look some more, think some more then make the decision. Any other time would have been mighty frustrating, but it was the first time we had been out alone together in years and with everything going on it was nice to share the decisions.

We got some really great pressies for loved ones that weren't overly expensive, thankfully as we are on a tight budget after Santa took his cut.

Taking the time to look really made me think about how we could make nearly everything that we bought! I mean, thats what we do here at Nice Buns, Nice Life Hq, we make things! So why, the week before Christmas, are we out shopping for gifts?? The answer is quite a simple one, disorganisation! lol

I have made the coolest gift for our little niece Eva which I know she will love and the best bit has got to be the amount of love that went into making it. That you can't buy.

So the first Nice Buns, Nice Life New Year resolution is that we are not going to buy anyone any gifts for the entire year of 2013. Everything will have to be made. In order for this to work we will need to be organized, this one could be more difficult!

                                          How about knitting a cupcake? No seams, no small parts,
                                          perfect for littlies. Our girls use them in their play kitchen!

So with this in mind and alot of family birthdays early in the year I have cast on the first pressie this morning for our nephews birthday in January. I will share it with you when im finished.

If you love this idea of making and giving with love but are not confident enough or have never tried knitting, sewing, baking etc then get in touch with us and book a workshop. Not only will you learn a new skill but its a great evening out as well.

New Year, New Skills.

Love n hugs,
