When you’re listening to approximately 14 hours of Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter while crafting. When your cards are Doctor Who-inspired though…When it’s Sunday morning and the sun is shining and reflecting from white roof tops.

And stamping your own, personalised wrapping paper. Wrapping is just the boring part. Yes, let’s go back to crafting. And card making. And even more Doctor Who-inspired Christmas cards.
