December Herbs on Saturday:

 Win a Cath Kidston Christmas Decorations Book

Welcome to the NEW December Herbs on Saturday Challenge! Before I tell you about the special challenge I have planned for your this month, I would like to say a HUGE thanks to Jen over at Blue Kitchen Bakes for guest hosting the event for November! She has posted a LOVELY November Round-Up, so do pop over there to see what herby delights were entered last month. This month I have a very CRAFTY project for you, not only am I accepting recipes with HERBS in them, but I am also accepting ANY crafts that use herbs of spices…..homemade Christmas decorations, or potpourri, or even wreathes, they are all welcome here! All you have to do is add your blog link to the linky at the end of this post and that’s all that is needed to enter! The best entry at the end of the month, will win a lovely book –  Cath Kidston Christmas Decorations Book

“This Christmas, why not let Cath Kidston decorate your Christmas tree?

Make Your Own Christmas Decorations includes templates and sewing instructions for 12 different felt ornaments. The book also contains sheets of coloured felt in six different shades, pompoms, and embroidery thread (stuffing not included), which can be used to create a delightful collection of felt ornaments including a Christmas Pudding, Gift-Wrapped Present, Striped Stocking, Frosty Snowman, Winter Reindeer, Holly and Berries and, of course, a Festive Stanley. The book details exactly how to use the enclosed pack of materials to create the ornaments, with each stage detailed clearly in the explanatory step-by-step photographs.

Make Your Own Christmas Decorations is perfect fun for all the family, for that homemade Christmas feel.”
