Haul: How we spent our Christmas money

Is it just me, or is Christmas money still a bit of a taboo topic? Everyone gives it; everyone receives it – yet very few seem to talk about it. Strange…

Anyway, here’s how we spent ours this year…

Or at least some of ours. Making this video highlighted the joyous fact that we actually still have some Chrimble money left. Woo-and-bloody-hoo!

If you’d rather read all about it than watch the video, keep scrolling…

Sticking (see what I did there!) with the theme of stationery I purchased these gorgeous washi tapes from Paperchase. I’ve used them to decorate my desk calendar at work and think they will come in useful for various toddler boy craft projects too.

I’m a bit obsessed with these Berol Fineline pens – they’re great for writing and doodling with.
