2013-12-06 15.21.36-1We absolutely adore Margaret Hewens‘ entry in Stockland’s Christmas Craft Competition!

Margaret made these charming personalised decorations – carved with a scroll saw and coloured with paint pens – for her daughter’s family.

“I make something every year,” she says. “Family and friends know there is going to be something special in with their Christmas card”.

“Everything I make I cut from wood and give with love”.

Thank you, Margaret, for this absolutely heartwarming submission!
