So, this is a post partly to wish you a merry christmas – Merry Christmas! – and partly to share a last few designs from 2013.  Some of these have sold but others are still available to purchase – a number are already on Etsy.

Thanks to all who’ve followed – or just stopped by – this wee blog throughout the last year – it’s nearly its first birthday.  And, once again, a very Merry Christmas to you all.

GIVEAWAY and FREE SHIPPING! Merry Christmas and Thank you!

A giveaway is long, long overdue!  I said I’d do one to mark reaching 200 likers on Facebook and I’m nearly at 300 now.  So, to thank you Facebook followers and to spread a bit of Christmas cheer, I’m going to give away this bracelet which featured in the Christmas issue of Beads and Beyond.snowbound


All you need to do is leave a comment on this post.  It would be great if you could spread the word about this giveaway, so if you share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., please leave extra comments saying where you’ve shared and you’ll have a greater chance of winning!  The winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday evening and I’ll get the bracelet in the post so that, if you’re in the UK, you’ll have it in time for Christmas.  If you’re not in the UK you can, of course, still enter – it’s just unlikely that the bracelet will be with you before Christmas!

Huge thanks again to everyone who has supported both my shops in the last year.  When I get to 300 likes on Facebook I’ll do another giveaway – and I’ll make sure I do it more promptly next time!

The other piece of news I have to share is that I’m offering free shipping this week up to midday on 19th December, the last post day for Christmas delivery.  Just enter the code FREESHIP when you check out.  Click here to head to the shop!  This offer is available to UK and overseas customers.  Your orders will be sent either by UK 1st Class or standard Airmail.

Thanks again!
