Handmade Men

Pin It Came across a fabulous blog a few weeks ago called Handmademen.  They were looking for suggestions for their Hot Picks feature so I decided to suggest handmade cufflinks.  You may or may not realise that I make cufflinks, you can check out my range on Etsy.  Since I revised my tags on Etsy last weekend they are proving to be quite popular as I have sold 2 pairs in the last week.  Guess I should get on and make some more!!!

Craft Britannia Shop of the Week - Colour Me Fun

Pin It Over on Etsy I am a member of many teams one of them being Craft Britannia - this is a team for UK based Etsians and is a really great and supportive team.  One of the fantastic things they do is have a shop of the week where a different shop is chosen and we all help to promote them by tweeting, posting on Facebook, hearting things in their shop etc.  So I thought I would write a blog post dedicated to this week's shop - Colour Me Fun.

Colour Me Fun makes fabulous crayons in a variety of shapes and colours from dinosaurs to crowns, even your name in letters!!!

One of my favourites has to be lego crayons!!!

New beaded beads

Pin It Spent the evening last night trying out a new beading pattern for beaded beads from The Crimson Moon.  These ones have a wooden bead as the core.  Quite straight forward once I got the hang of it!!  Think I will make a matching one and do some earrings...

Blog revamp!!

Pin It After neglecting my blog for far too long I have decided it is time to give it a make over and start using it again!!!  So I've changed the banner to match the new one for my Etsy shop and changed the template.  I think it looks much better now!!  Now I just need to remember to update it every now and then :-)
