Make Your Own Christmas: meet the makers (Part 1)

Noel Prickle PressAs with all our events, the spirit of this year’s Make Your Own Christmas Party will be all about the people who participate and share their skills. We talk to two of our makers about why they’re involved, what they’ll be doing on the day and what they’re most looking forward to.

Why did you get involved with the Christmas party and what activity are you doing?

I got involved because I wanted to help run a community event that celebrated making and creating your own Christmas rather than the commercial “buy your own Christmas” idea. I’m bringing along my letterpress and offering the chance for people to hand print a motif or festive saying on their handmade cards.

What are you looking forward to on the day?

The atmosphere – Makerhood events are always filled with such a variety of people and there’s always lots of laughter, chatter and enjoyment. I love being in a creative, sharing environment like this.

Why did you get involved with the Christmas party and what activity are you doing?

I got involved with the Makerhood Christmas party because I had such a great day at the Making Uncovered event in April. It was a brilliant event and I made some great connections. I’ll be making paper snowflakes with anyone who fancies a bit of chilling!

What are you looking forward to on the day?

I’m looking forward to crafting up a storm and making a mountain of flakes with fellow south Londoners!

      //அய்யா… எனது வீட்டின் அருகே பல ஆட்டோ ஓட்டுனர்கள் உள்ளனர். அவர்களில் சிலர் எனக்கு பழக்கம். அதிக பணம் கேட்டு ஸ்டாண்டிலேயே நின்று பொழுதைக் கழிக்காமல், வரும் வாடிக்கையாளரை இழக்காமல் நியாயமாக ரேட்டு பேசி ஓட்டும் சாமர்த்தியசாலிகள், நன்றாகவே பணநெருக்கடி இல்லாமல் வாழ்கிறார்கள்.// அய்யயோ இந்தமாதிரி வசனம் பேசாதா ஓட்டுனர்களால் என்ன லாபம் நீங்க இன்னும் வளரனும் பாஸ்

    • fint Ã¥ se deg i dag, selv om du var busy med Ã¥ selge.. lÃ¥nte et par bilder da jeg ikke fikk tatt bilde av deg pÃ¥ markedet i dag.. 🙂 og linket selvfølgelig 🙂 kaffe denne uka er et must

    • Anybody cares to explain to me why are the 30 years fixed rates increasing, if 100% probability of 0.5% point cut is here?? Is it risk based or inflation expectation based? And is there any chance of it going lower again?Or is it “Because there is no market” for mortgage – backed securities right now?The ones which are being sold stink too much???

    • Non me lo so spiegare ma la foto dell'articolo mi inquieta non poco. Il gatto bianco, con quella zampa protesa in avanti, sembra quasi in procinto di spiccare un balzo verso l'osservatore. E poi tutti quegli occhi spalancati e fissi verso uno stesso punto.. tutto l'insieme ha un che di "shining-iano", compreso il gatto che, incurante di tutto, mangia sullo sfondo 😉

    Is that really all there is to it because that’d be flabbergasting.

    #97,Good points about politicians changing their minds. I had not thought about it in that way and I believe you are correct. In fact, I can say that insofar as religion goes, I’ve even seen folks change their views there when I never thought they would. Point: Hamous.Still, the gist of Carl Sagan’s comment is valid. People tend to be much more rigid idealogues in the arena of politics and religion than they are in matters of science, where mathematics can generally be used to validate or invalidate a particular idea.
