The Creatives Christmas Party

Last Saturday I travelled up to London with Rachel, Harriet and Luke for the long awaited Creatives Christmas Party! 

Emma and Stacie had been incredibly busy organising this special day for us all, and their efforts really showed!

As we walked in the door we were greeted by a plethora of delightful and delicious edible treats. My personal favourite was the apple cake, but it was also lovely to start the Christmas season off right with a good old mince pie!

There was also the opportunity to decorate our own gingerbread man, so Emma and I decided we would decorate ours to match our own outfits. What do you think?
We were lucky enough to be given a goodie bag each, I was amazed by the wonderful sponsors generosity! Scroll to the bottom of the post to see what I got.
There was also a fantastic prize draw which caused much excitement! Again the sponsors had been incredibly generous, just take a look at the spread below.
I was very lucky to have picked the ticket which won me some amazing Smug goodies!
I won 3 prints, including this gorgeous piece by Harriet! My walls are pretty bare at the moment, so I am looking forward to framing these and deciding where to put them!

I also won 2 Wrap magazines a guinea pig hanky and a Smug bag. I think I did pretty well!
As promised earlier, here is a sneak peek into the delights that were hiding in my goody bag;
First of all I was stunned to pull out a Dr Haushka Powder set and Bodymilk! I have always loved their products and the companies natural and ethical ethos, so I was super chuffed!

In the picture above you can also see a (rather delicious looking) card by hiya pal on the left, and Christmas gift tags by Hollie McManus  to the right.
This little pocket mirror by Sweetoxen is the cutest! You can buy your very own from here, it would make a great stocking filler. I also love this pretty feather card by Emma Margaret's Doodle Designs.
Above you can just about spot a chirpy christmas robin card by Nikki Miles. Also pictured is a festive christmas light pendant from bottled treasures. Teapigs also gave us some delicious looking teas to try!
This pretty 'dream big' keyring came courtesy of Auntie Mims in a association with Stacie Swift Illustration.
The contribution from Ladybird Likes didn't disappoint either, with a cute heart brooch and 4 motivational postcards! 

This rather sweet mammoth card was given by Ohh Deer, illustrated by James Barker.

We were so lucky to have had some amazing sponsors for this party, if you haven't already you should check out all of their shops, I'm sure it will help with your Christmas Shopping!

Huge thanks to Stacie and Emma for organising the day. It was great to have a chance to catch up with some people I had met before, as well as meeting a whole new bunch of lovely creative people!
