I regularly receive emails from Creating Keepsakes, one of my favourite magazines to sit and pore through. Before Christmas they sent out an email about a Christmas Ornament/Decoration Drop, and they were keen to see it go worldwide... So I thought, why not?! The idea is brilliant - make your own ornament or decoration, print off a tag supplied by Creating Keepsakes to attach to it, and leave it in a public place. The idea being that people who found them would hopefully read the tag and post a note on the decoration drop-off blog that CK had set up. Bloody brilliant!
I made a couple of extra christmas crackers and the boys and I dropped them off at two appropriate places for us - the Hospice and the Hospital. These two places were in our thoughts as Nan had only passed away a few days beforehand, at the Hospice. As a complete aside, the new wing of the Hospice is FANTASTIC, and the people who work there are amazing - I don't know how they do it, but they are incredible. Anyhoo, waffle aside, here are the pics of our drop off...

Hopefully the 'finder' was someone who appreciated our gift. I hope it brightened their day. I plan to do this again next year, a little bit of kindness towards others is good for the soul :)
