**Christmas Countdown** Launch

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly

It's time to launch our Christmas Countdown!

Each week the Design Team will be bringing you some fabulous crafting ideas to help you prepare for the Holiday Season - and there will be weekly prizes, specials and challenges! You'll have TWO weeks from the start of the challenge to email us your entries. Each challenge and theme will be posted on the blog by Sunday night. Keep reading below for this week's theme. There will be heaps of variety and by no means will they all be red and green, so if Christmas is not really your thing - there will be HEAPS for you to enjoy too.

Here at Artfull Crafts we love Christmas so much - we have a whole section of our website dedicated to Christmas Products. We are still ordering more Christmas Stock - so be sure to check in often.

The store is now online and to celebrate our launch we have a couple of Specials to share with you.
