50 Makes for Christmas - the list!

Following a post I made on a Facebook group yesterday it seems I am not the only one mad enough to start making their Christmas plans in June!  So I am inviting anyone who is interested to join me in this challenge I know that 50 makes is a big ask for a lot of people, so set a target that is achievable or you.

Here is my declaration  " I am going to give it a go to create 50 makes for Christmas"

If you would like to join in please post your own declaration in the comments below or on the Facebook group that I run called "Christmas Crafting", this is a closed group so if any of your makes are for gifts they should be secret unless the recipient is in the group! Please feel free to share this if you are a blogger, the more the merrier
