So most of you know I have spent the last 10 years living away from my home country of Australia. Christmas this year was my first at home since 2006. It was also my first Christmas in a non-Muslim country (they don’t really go as all-out in Dubai with Christmas as the majority of people aren’t Christian) in 6 years and my first Christmas in a house instead of an apartment in 10 years, naturally my DIY brain went into crafting overdrive.
I wanted to share with you some images of my home made Christmas. Most decorations were hand made and I definitely shy away from red and green which I feel is a stressful colour combination and can often make a stressful Christmas Day more of a headache. It also doesn’t look very chic.
This year was my first cooking and decorating and hosting Christmas. It was very special for me to be back with my mother who has suffered a stroke.
I tried to work with colours my Mum’s house already had in the decor. Colours like gold, grey, beige, light brown and white.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. To my fans and followers from all over the world, thankyou for staying with me for all of these years.
I hope 2015 rocks your socks off and the glue gun from your hands!
