Court & Spark Facebook Page Giveaway

Inspired by Kokokelli, I've decided to do a GIVEAWAY when my facebook page reaches 100 fans!

I’m only at around 30 at the moment so need all the Follower help I can get!

The Prize:
✲✲✲ Your choice of colour Dala Folk Horse Decoration ✲✲✲

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is “like” my page via the link below and invite friends to join …

I will choose the winner using RandomPicker tool once I reach 100 fans!!

Good Luck!!

Look What I Got!

A huge thank you to Kelly of Kokokelli for my fabulous bracelet which I WON in her Facebook Page giveaway (and I never win anything)!!

I chose the bead colours findings type and asked for a "nautical theme" and this is what she came up with - GORGEOUS!! It's so pretty and delicate...

Check out Kokokelli's Blog for more info on her excellent jewellery and greetings cards...

Matryoshka Madness!!

This is strictly a limited run as I know a lot of crafters do versions of these(!) But I found this fabric I forgot I had and thought it was a good way to use up some fabric scraps for the backings... These are now available on MISI and I'll list some on Folksy tomorrow...

BTW All my shop listings and blog posts show up automatically on my Facebook Fan Page so if you haven't "liked" me on there yet feel free to check it out - I am usually quite quick to return the favour too(!)
