Sue Kavanagh of Liberty Rose gave to me: a tutorial on ...
Yes it's a little way off to Christmas yet with barely a whiff of autumnal chill to the air but for those of you vowing to be organised this year - we thought we'd start to share a bit of crafting loveliness now. The idea is that we bring you 12 projects - one each week from now until the week before the big day. That way you've got plenty of time to have a go at them all without getting flustered trying to fit them all in. We have enlisted the help of some truly amazing makers to help smooth the path to Chrimbo and to kick off we have HQ's neighbour at the Barn Courtyard, Wendover - Sue Kavanagh of Liberty Rose.
Liberty Rose is a tiny lifestyle store selling vintage found objects and unique handmade gifts, cards and things for the home.
Nestled in the heart of the Chilterns, she just happens to be right next door to the Courtyard Gallery in Wendover where we have our little shop and oh - it's dangerous having her so close!
I think in my mind I have given almost everything in her shop a home - mainly my own - but best of all, Sue takes commissions!
So if any of her creations have turned your head, you can have your very own bespoke version. A little piece of French inspired beauty could be yours. Particularly delectable are her little inspiration packs which make beautiful and unique gifts.
But on with the creative cleverness - how to make your very own, very grown-up advent calendar (not a moulded chocolate in sight!) Take it away Sue....
Now doesn't that look beautiful? Thanks for sharing this with us, Sue.
Pop back next week when we will be sharing another project designed to help you on your way to a very crafty Christmas.
Enjoy your week!
