Welcome to December Loves! I hope you're all ready for this holiday season, whether you'll be going on holiday or staying at home, I hope it's a wonderful one for all.
I've been working on a range of Christmas paper goods this past month, focusing on the parts of Christmas and traditions that fit in with our hot South African Decembers. I've never really felt that the dozens of decorations that celebrate a cold weather fit in with our holidays when we're experiencing some of our hottest summer days...
For me, the parts of traditional Christmas cheer that do fit in with our sunshine, swimming pools, and summer afternoon braais is the food — particularly the sweets. Gingerbread men, peppermints, jelly tots... So, I've worked on a colour scheme and illustrations that DO match in with the heat, but still feels festive!
I'll be launching our Christmas Paper Goods range next year, but here is a little sneak peek at my Gingerbread Town so long in the form of our monthly desktop calendar wallpaper!
Happy Holidays Loves,
