The Purr-fect Christmas Present

Did you all have a nice Christmas? I've been a busy bee and have spent lots of time away from social media - not on purpose but just because of the family festivities. I'm very much looking forward to curling up with a blanket and the laptop and reading through all of your recent posts. 

For now though, I wanted to show you what my sister gave me for Christmas. 


How awesome is that? My sister currently works for an animation company and has bundles of artistic talents, my favourite of which is her ability to draw. She picked a Disney animation film from the year I was born (she also did the same for my other sister & two cousins) and drew a character for each of us. As you can see, I got Oliver from Oliver & Company. I just adore it. I mean, she bought us some other gifts too which I love, however the time & effort put into something personal and hand made makes anything that extra bit special I think.

Did any of you receive any hand made gifts for Christmas? I'd love to see them. In 2016 I want to push myself more creatively and would love the inspo. Feel free to leave me a link in the comments with your gift posts so I can check them out.
