Merry Christmas everyone!

Hi everyone. I hope you all have a great Christmas break, and safe and relaxing holidays.

I'm off to see my Mum up North for a few days, then down to see my Dad and other family in Dunedin. A well earned and much needed break!

My Felt store is now closed until January 6th (you can still message me, I just probably won't reply very quickly).

Have fun!

One last Felt Favs post before Christmas

Hopefully you're all getting your Christmas shopping out of the way nice and early (if you can call this early)... but if you need a few last minute (well, for buying online anyway) pressies, check out my latest favourite finds on Felt.

1) I think everyone on Felt has 'ooohhhed' over hjrddesign's Magnetic Decals. So cool and unique!
2) Be eco-fashionable this Christmas with Skipapple's Coffee Cup Eco-Sleeves.
3) New to Felt, Create Or Bust's funky brooches. I love 'Frankie'.
4) Honey Design's Alice in Wonderland Bookmarks would be a great stocking filler!
5) For the girl on the go, Ruby In The Dust's Pocket Mirror and Pouch.
6) And last but not least, for someone special, Two Wee Birds Sterling Silver Pendant by Wishing Tree.

Love them all.


Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway. It was nice to have so many lovely comments here and on Facebook - I now even have more than 100 fans, and more followers here, so welcome to the new faces!

Congrats to Rachael (who entered on Facebook) and Bee. Your parcels will be in the mail as soon as you send me your addresses!

How's everyone's Christmas preparation going? I'm so happy, only just over a week of work left for the year!!! Yay.

Mmmm, minty

He he, look at that. My cuff links made it into the Summer 09/10 issue of Australian magazine Peppermint. They're alongside so many wonderful products from people I admire and love. I didn't even know about it until a friend told me! I'm glad that I managed to track down a copy (from Swonderful), it looks like it'll keep my crafty eyes entertained over my summer holidays.... ahh, roll on holiday time!

Have you entered my giveaway? If not, snap to it, ends on Sunday.

It's giveaway time!!!

Ok, I said I'd do a giveaway when I got to 100 fans on Facebook, but I can't be bothered waiting... I've met some really lovely and talented people this year, in 'real' life and online, and would like to do a giveaway to thank everyone around me for their support and friendship throughout 2009. You can win one of two
Freedom Creative prize packs.

Each contains a Japanese Inspired Scrabble Tile Necklace, a Wooden Brooch and three Japanese Fabric Hair Ties, valued at over $40 each!

They'd make great Christmas pressies for someone special, or of course, yourself. Entering is easy, all you need to do is leave a comment (say anything!) here on my blog, or on my Facebook status update about this giveaway (here). You can enter twice (once here and once on Facebook), entries will close at midnight (NZ time) on Sunday 13th December, winners drawn at random and I'll notify the winners (make sure you leave your email address if you leave an anonymous message here).

Oh yeah, Felt now also says the number of sales each seller has had, as well as their feedback rating. I've had 167 sales... wow, didn't think it would be that many!!!

How'd the market go? Great!

The Night Market on Thursday was a great night! I was beside the lovely Rose of Rose Among Thorns and there were so many other talented crafters, with awesome looking stalls. And of course, lots of lovely customers, some who even come along just to see me! How nice. There were tonnes of people through the doors and everyone seemed to be in the Christmas pressie buying spirit!

Thanks to everyone who visted, and everyone who helped organise the night, especially Lucy. Here's a photo of my stall at the beginning of the night. I sold out of magnets and gift tags (both made especially for the occasion).
I've spent the last few days filling orders from the market, photographing my stock and updating my Felt store, which is looking a lot healthier now.

My range is ever-changing because of the papers I use and my mind not standing still, but new to my range now are custom made Scrabble letter brooches and pins, and Japanese fabric hair ties.

Check back on Monday for an awesome giveaway, two prizes to be won!
