Early Bird Coupon Code and Christmas.....

To help with the cost of Christmas, this week you can save 15% by using coupon code EARLYBIRD15 for a 15% discount at checkout, until Midnight 4th of November.  

This year I've already started buying little gifts, to try and spread the cost.  As for food, there are offers on long lasting food and drink that I'm starting to buy as well, as I'd rather spend the time closer to Christmas baking and doing Christmassy things with the family =)

Craft Britannia's Shop Of The Week Colour me Fun...

Lego Men Inspired Crayons - Set of 8 
This week's shop of the week is bursting with colour!  Bright, blod and beautiful describes the wonderful collection of crayons that are available to buy for kids of all ages and sizes. 

 Gingerbread Man Crayons - Set of 8

If your looking for a fun educational stocking filler put these on your list, I am and prices start from as little as £3 =)

The lady behind the crayons is Danielle and to read her interview with Craft Britannia 

Something new....

Well these little lovelies are my newest addition to my shop.  They kind of remind me jewellery that might be found on a archeological site, although I have used shiny sterling silver wire to make these.

I Think that the copper beads really work well here in helping to bring out and complement the colours of the glass beads!

October Craft Britannia's Treasure-Thon...

 Thought I'd share the love and show you the collections of goodies I put together =)

Lets not forget blue at Christmas.  Bright cold blue winter skies and ice scenes from fairy tales come to mind, with snow Queens and frost imps =) 

 This treasury is a bit softer and lighter, but it still has a hint of Christmas spice.

 A more grown up themed Christmas treasury =)

And here we have the more traditional reindeer's and robins treasury.

Autumn Butterfly.....

Here's a pic of a necklace I recently made using Mookaite, which is a Australian form of Jasper, where it is considered to be a healing stone.  

As you can see this stone has lots of lovely colours and tones from deep reds, browns and yellows, to creamy whites at the lighter end of the spectrum.  Caramels, chocolate, cappuccino froth and espresso coffee all come to mind when looking at this stone.

Autumn Eye Candy.....

With it being so dull out side, I thought I'd add some colourful images of my lastest creations to my blog =)
 Will write more later, but for now I'll leave you with these lovely colours to look at!
