So Christmas is over for another year. How was it for you?
In the words of John Lennon, we hope it was a good one!
However, just before it’s all forgotten, it’s a really good idea to stop and think about how well everything worked this year and whether you would do anything differently next time. For example, some of us would immediately say that next year they are definitely not going to leave so much till the last minute: others may say that yet again they bought far too much food despite worrying that there would not be enough. How wonderful it would be if we could learn from this and make things easier for ourselves next Christmas!
Whether it’s the age-old question of how does Santa get down the chimney, the eternal surprise of Cinderella’s shoe fitting in the Christmas pantomime, or the annual battle to get the turkey in the oven and the door shut …. Christmas is full of issues to do with fitting!
Christmas means many different things to different people.

So we wanted to write an article with some ideas about how to make gifts and decorations for Christmas.
But it seems that every clever title we came up with has already been used elsewhere – usually by Kirstie Allsopp! She has previously presented Homemade Christmas and Handmade Christmas – and now is presenting
Crafty Christmas, described by Channel 4 as “a festive fast-track guide to ensuring the big day goes with a bang”.
The one thing that you really couldn’t do without? Opinions vary enormously: even here at DIY Homefit we had to agree to disagree! But we’ve come up with the following list of five that we think are probably representative of the majority of our readers. But maybe we’re wrong!
If you are thinking about redoing your kitchen this autumn then one option you really do need to look at is replacement kitchen doors.
If you are happy with the basic layout of your kitchen, and the internal quality and structure of your kitchen units are sound, then why throw money away by replacing them? A much more cost-effective solution would be replacement kitchen doors.
Done well, it can transform almost any piece of furniture from old and worn to refreshing and on trend. But when not done well, it can look just like a rather badly painted piece of old worn furniture!
