I made the above stocking for my friend's baby, Grace. This is a photo from my friend with the stocking in place, ready for Santa.
I think this year is definitely a year for change, and more action! Last year I was finding my feet a little with starting out freelancing and with Beetroot Press; my little business where I sell home and gifts on Folksy and Etsy.
Below is the blackberry jam I made at Christmas, from foraged berries, as gifts for family. I managed to keep half a pot for us, and it tasted pretty good, which surprised me as I have never made it before. It was also much easier than I thought it would be, you just need to buy a cooking thermometer if you don't have one. Here's the recipe I used, and make sure you sterilise the jars.
So, I hope you all have a productive and happy year ahead, and do what you love!
