Christmas Crafting In No Time has a beautiful Scandinavian feel with fifty full projects. Christmas Crafting In No Time says that the holidays ¿present wonderful opportunities to get crafty and create a sparkling warm and welcoming festive home¿ and I love all of the ideas they share to help us to do so. I also really enjoyed the charming hand drawn illlustrations that accompany the step-by-step directions for each project. In the Decorations area there are adorable felt owls to hang anywhere. Lovely Table Decorations ideas are shown to help your table look its best and most festive for the holidays. The Cards and Gift Wrap chapter has lots of fun suggestions for presenting gifts. I just loved the goodie bags with gingerbread men labels! Adorable sugar mice can be left in stockings or wrapped and given as gifts are found in the Cooking for Christmas section. Handmade gifts are also detailed, like a beautifully decorated jar of vanilla sugar which would be perfect as a hostess gift. I definitely recommend Christmas Crafting In No Time if you like eye candy to look at and to make!
