I'm usually a bit of a 'Bah Humbug' person until much nearer Christmas but I do love giving presents and this year I'm in the mood for doing it a bit earlier than usual.
2011 has been a year of change and new starts for me and has just flown by. During the course of it I've had a great time and met some wonderful people, many of whom I now consider to be friends even though I'll never meet most of them. This is one hell of a community we have going here.
Much as I'd like to, I can't give gifts to everyone (I've had a word with Santa though...) so to say thanks to all my new friends, customers, followers and fans I'm having a special Christmas giveaway with 3 gifts which everyone has a chance to win.
A lovely lampwork pendant in a gorgeous deep burgundy red embellished with drops of fine silver melted into the glass. Accented with Karen Hill Tribe fine silver beads, It hangs on a burgundy leather cord with sterling silver fittings and a hand made sterling silver clasp.
Next we have the result of one of my other creative endeavours...
This hand knitted cranberry red and silver ruffle scarf that's not just beautiful (don't be put off by the look of disdain on my model's face!) but long and cosy and will keep someone 'snug as a bug' all winter. I make these scarves when I'm watching TV in the evening as I like to have something to do with my hands - I tried jewellery but that got a bit messy! I'm getting quite a collection of these now and will probably be adding some to my Etsy shop soon.
And finally...a little bit of festive fun...
One of my bag charms featuring cheerful red and green handmade lampwork beads and a pretty bow - can you get any more 'Christmassy' than this..?
