Day 1 : Making Your Festive Prop Box

Hello! Welcome to day one of my festive Advent project. Over the next few weeks I'll be publishing one short, inspiring piece of festive goodness and I hope you'll follow along! If you'd like to be notified by email each day, sign up on the main page. Today's video is all about getting some props together. Enjoy...
