DIY and Crimbo surely do not mix?

As you may well know, it’s that time of year.

This can mean only one thing.

A visit to the big man.

The dude in the red suit.

The don, Mr Clause.

So, off we went.

Venga Bus packed full of kids.

But where were we going I hear you ask?

Well this year, the visit to the big man had a twist.

It was on a farm and had activities for the kids to do.

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, these activities were no ordinary activities.

It was “build your own Christmas tree”.

Which sounds simple, right?

Well, it started off simple.

Wood on the table, paint everywhere, glitter in our hair, the usual messy messness.

Then out came the hammers.


Yep, hammers.

Four kids, fours hammers, a bag full of nails and two very worried looking parents.

So, the next task was to nail the wooden branches they had painted onto a wooden frame.

Using real hammers and real nails.

Now, anyone who has ever seen Jude with a drum stick knows this is a recipe for disaster.

I’m absolutely amazed we didn’t end up in A&E.

Blood flying everywhere.

Like a dodgy scene from Casualty.

Or at least end up with a flesh wound or two.

But no, we escaped with all our digits.

Although we did need a (large) glass of mulled wine when we got home, just to settle our nerves.

To be honest, they looked pretty damn gooooood.

They have now taken pride in place in the kids bedrooms.

Which Ruby is very impressed with.

But that is two things that DEFINITELY DO NOT GO TOGETHER.

DIY and Christmas.

Do you know what else doesn’t go together?

Using two different companies for your print and signs.

Why on earth would you do that?

Why run the risk of two different companies destroying your brand with bad colour management.

Why not use one company?

Why not use us?

We are experts in this and it is what we love to do.

So, if you’re not happy with your current supplier and in need of some brand consistency, why not give us a call?
