Lovely! Thank you Jemma. I wish nicr holidays to everyone

Hi Jemma, thanks for all new and interesting ways to use nature’s way , to wrap presents and to decorate our houses with natural things. We must just learn to look outside in our gardens, or look were we walk and pick up, what we can use and construct our brains in bringing it back to life in a different natural way. My hubby is good in that way, he can take something and make it beautiful again and we both believe in natural material as far as possible. Thanks Jemma for all these free gifts and very special ideas, much appreciated. Chris you are totally right when saying, use your gut feeling, that usually is the perfect solution to your thinking and doing. At Londolozi ,you people have the perfect place to explore nature in it’s natural form. Keeping everything simple and using your gut feeling , can bring new feelings and better understanding of nature in a different perspective.

Thanks Jemma and Chris for the lovely ideas for decorations and the philosophical wisdom on nature and our bonds with it. And the leopard photos are great.

Fantastic decorating ideas Jemma. I especially like the gift wrapping, using useable napkins, dish towels, etc and baskets.

And Chris, I appreciated your thoughts on instincts. It’s a topic that is highly debated, but I think I agree with your summation. Many times we do overthink when instincts work just as well. Cheers!

Jemma, Once again you have challenged us! We love the creative decoration ideas you presented and we will do our best to follow in your footsteps going forward! Happy New Year!
