When Claire from Bottle PR asked for people to do some arty Xmas stuff on fabric I thought “why not?”. I like messy arty stuff, Kieran adores it. A few days later these 3D fabric paints arrived in the post:

HUGE panic, I don’t have an iron, I’ll mess it up, I can’t cope well with anything that contains glitter! After Claire talked me down and reassured me that they didn’t need ironing and would just set in about 4hrs, we got to work.

 When I say “we”, I mean Kieran, aka Mr Independent. At 5yrs he was more than capable of designing his own Xmas tshirt and had a fantastic time doing it.

The end result….

It has indeed set overnight and has been great fun. I would say though that avoiding huge blobs is the better idea as otherwise it takes much longer to “set”.

There is plenty left over and we are going to hunt out some more from this range, which is available at John Lewis and Hobbycraft, because there is no end to the projects we can do, festive and otherwise. Kieran wants to get some plain fabric bags to decorate and put some home-made biscuits in for his Aunt’s, another lovely Christmas idea.

Great fun and a new way for Kieran to create, I can see us doing many more projects involving Dylon in the future and look forward to playing with the other items in their art & craft range.

Christmas decorations are on sale, Christmas fairs and events are starting and before long the advent calendars will be opening. The festive season has definitely started!

Tesco recognise that are budgets are tight these days, and that everybody feels it even more at Christmas. A recent survey by a high street bank found that across the UK people will spend on average £378 on gifts alone for their immediate family. And that’s not including what we’ll spend on going out, eating and drinking over the festive season.

To celebrate the launch of their Christmas ezine Gift Guide, the lovelies from Tesco Magazine online would like to help with the load by offering one of my readers a 1 x £100 Tesco gift voucher.

For the first time, this year Tesco has created their Christmas Gift Guide exclusively online. This easy to navigate and quite frankly blooming gorgeous interactive ezine is packed with shopping inspiration, fashion and party glamour and sparkling ideas for festive entertainment. Be warned, it is not for anyone with scrooge-like tendencies as it is the ultimate festive feeling guide.

For gift ideas, gift wrapping, fashion inspiration for around the festive season and much more it really is a must read!

 The competition!

Visit the Ezine here and leave me a comment telling my what your favourite page is. For example my entry (if I were allowed) would be:

I love the Get The Look section, I never know what to wear on Xmas day that is comfortable but looks great in the photos!“.

It really is as simple as that. Do make sure that you are following Tesco Magazine on Twitter  for more chances to win gift vouchers and goodies for Christmas! Good luck all!
