welcome

December is one of those months that can easily whizz by before you know it, passing in a haze of festive prep, parties and general merriment. So, in those pockets of downtime, make sure to look after yourself, taking a minute to relax and unwind when you can.

meet the maker desiner sandeep pawar created our felt winter wreath banner

“Walking over the Sussex Downs in winter is one of my favourite things. My daughter Martha and I explore hidden routes, climb trees and collect a bounty of treats – acorns, berries, foliage and fallen petals. In fact, the greens of the foliage and the bold tones of seasonal florals inspired this kit. When I look at the finished piece I’m reminded of festive gatherings, and that warm feeling you get when you’re with loved ones. I love creating floral banners as they’re so easy to make. The rolled rose, layering of the leaves and scattered flowers give the wreath depth and opulence. I’ll be hanging mine over the dining room table – the ideal spot to inspire new adventures!” Sandeep makes kids’ home and party décor from her Brighton studio. See…
