Happy Homemade Christmas time for all the senses

One of the things I enjoy about Christmas is having time to be creative in different ways to my usual jewellery making - I obviously enjoy the sparkle of Christmas, so this year I knitted this bead and wire bauble for our tree.

and these fun beaded snowflakes 

I also enjoy the homemade tastes of Christmas - I have to make vegetarian mincemeat 

so the non meat eater of the family can still enjoy some of my homemade mince pies - 

and of course Christmas at home just wouldn't be right without some seasonal smells so today I made this clove studded orange - my house now smells wonderful

you can find the recipes for the mincemeat and mince pies on my recipe page
