Christmas card and Christmas presents

These are my Christmas presents for my mum and sister - hope they like them. Mia designed them and I transfered her designs into these little hoop pictures. Mia's just finished a book about mermaids - so that's her thing at the moment.

So - here it is, our Christmas card, drawn by Mia (age 10), coloured by me (aged 44 - I think?!) printed by Andrew and stuck to card blanks. Now all I have to do is write them.

A friend said "It must be cheaper making your own" - where does this myth come from? Making things yourself is never cheaper on time or in money. But that is just what makes made things more special. Please world start to get it!
