Neck Warmer

After anticipating the arrival of said neck warmer,it came today and it could not have arrived on a better day!
Picture this, rain, wind, grim and cold, this was the morning i awoke to. Suddenly the post comes through the letter box and my eldest son (who is nine) bought the post tome.
There it was a padded envolope with my name upon it!
How excited was I? stupidly excited!!(yes it always feels like christmas when i am waiting for something to arrive!)
I opened my package and there it was, the colours are absolutely gorgeous and it feels so comfortable!
As i said earlier about the weather today, horrid so i was so excited i could wear it straight away! My poor hubby (who has the flu, man flu? i hear you say, my answer, probably!) gets dragged out into the foul weather with me just so i could wear my neck warmer, and it did its job i stayed warm!
My neckwarmer,arrived well presented, wrappedxin tissue paper wrapped with thread,and i thought a very nice personal touch the thread was the same as the neck warmer.
At the moment i can not divulge who the talanted person is that made the neck warmer,as of yet i do not have their permission to do so.
What made me feel the most delighted is that i knew when wearing the neck warmer, that i had also donated to a very good cause!

Speaking of good causes, look out for features about crafters who have online shops and also donate to charities!

Please take a look at my shop when you are looking for christmas gifts, as 10% of all my sales are going to the british army benevelent fund.

I have been very busy recently, with christmas in five weeks ( i am very sorry if offended anyone by saying the 'c' word!) As ive been looking around th eonline market place i ve seen some gorgeous items for christmas presents!

All are handmade, and over the next few weeks i am going to show you as many items as i can from a range of online market places.

I have just this night, bought a lovely, girly necklace for my daughter to put in her stocking. The necklace is made by a shop called dollipops, and you can find the shop hrer at
Dollipops shop items range from hair clips and head bands to some very pretty jewelley at great prices! And you have a choose of colur for the acrylic hearts! You can choose
from pink, orange, white, red, or yellow, you also get a choice
of chain length. The choices for length are 16, 17, or and eigteen inch chain.

If you looking for somethi
ng for the little princess in your life , that she deems pretty enough to stay in her hair (my daughter is a nightmare for this!!) then dollipops' bow grips could be the answer! Pretty ribben bows with hand stiched bead centres are pretty for any little girl to want to keep in her hair!
The bow grippers come in a variety of colours. red, blue, lilac, pink.
The items in dollipops shop are great prices, for high quality items. If you are looking for something for your little (or big?!) princess take a look at Dollipops shop!
Crafteroo,( also another shop on folksy, but this shop needs everyones attention and your money! I say this because crafteroos shop is full of gorgeous and affordable items, made by the crafteroo foum members. Every single item in the shop is handmade and there is a wide variety to choose from, hairclips jewellery, cuddly toys and so on. All proceeds will go to children in need, all of the members have voluntered their own time, skills and materials, to go to
this worthy cause.
Just think when you watch someone unwrap the present you bought for them from the crafterooshop, not only will youhave made a loved one happy, but you have also helped all those men women and children, who have not been as fortunate as the majority of us.
Unfortunately the site wont let me upload the pictures at the moment, but please rest assured that as soon as i am able to upload, you shall have the pictures!
In the mean time, and what would better than waiting for me to post the pictures why dont you have a look at the shop its self!

Shameless promotion

As the title says i am going to indulge in some shameless promotion of my own jewellery!
Here are a couple of new items you can buy in my shop!
This gorgeous earring, bracelet and necklace set is made from sterling silver chain, clasps and circles. The focal point for the flowers and silver set is the gorgeous lampwork beads made by Caron fountain at halo beads ( My favourite set at the moment, iand it is vibrant and simply beautiful.

The below necklace and earring set named Pearly Hues. It is made with a four strand sterling silver clasp, beautifully coloured swarovski glass pearls. Each starnd is a different colour, pink yellow, and oranges, very subtle and classy

I've called the necklace below, winters bloom, silver and blue. Its a long necklace made with silver tone copper circle chain, and blur firepolished glass leaves strung together to make the three gorgeous flowers.

The earrings above are made from sterling silver chandeliers, black swarovski crystals and a beautiful green czech fire polished glass drop.

If you are interested in any of these items just check out any of my shops, but there is only one of each item so if you are wanting to buy you may just want to do it fast!
