♥ Handmade Christmas Presents ♥

I didn't make many presents this year, unlike last year. But I still made my usual batch of jam for the family. This year I tried making raspberry & also cherry, which both tasted pretty nice (I made some for the household too). The cherry was really sweet though, the raspberry had more flavour!

The only other thing I made were these coasters for my Grandparents'. I wood burned different plants/trees on them, & then dotted them with while acrylic paint & varnished. Lined with red felt to stop them scratching tables. I think they liked them, anyway! For everyone else I just bought gifts, I bought a record player for my Mum, who is always going on about how much records are better than CDs/mp3s, haha.
