Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 11-15

Christmas tree design on Look Fantastic

It is really blowing my mind just how quickly Christmas is approaching. Perhaps it is based on how busy I have been and how many different illnesses I have had to deal with since the start of December rather than actually being in the Christmas spirit or doing almost anything festive. If you missed the […]

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 6-10

Flamingo in front of Christmas tree design
