Monkey Keyrings for 2013

Good afternoon everyone and sorry for the lack of posts this last week.
It`s the start of the run up for christmas and i`m gonna be pretty busy, with making some of my january 2013 creations for my shop, then there`s the schools and clubs.  I still love this time of year though and have been able to take five and have a nose around and getting all inspired with the lovely decorations, that people have created. 
I made the christmas cake on tuesday, which was a bit later then I had planned, this was suppose to be on sunday, but just didn`t get around to it.  Which meant I wasn`t able to have a merry little tipple while making the cake because of the school run.  But never fear, the cake enjoyed it instead, YEAH!
One of the boys is helping the years, reception, 1, 2  and 3 with christmas shopping up at the school today, this is done every year for the whole school over 2 days, it`s a great fun event for all the kids and teachers.  Then tomorrow he`ll be doing his own with the rest of year 4, 5 and 6.
So he`ll be coming home with a bag of christmas goodies tomorrow.
I`ve been able to keep up to date with my orders, which is great and means, nobody has had to wait, i`ve managed to keep ontop of things, but has been alot of hard work, but really enjoying it.
I`ve been well organised, which for me is a main key.
I`ve been able to make a new batch of my felt monkey keyrings, so these are now ready for the new year, which is a great start.
I will still be selling my poppy brooches next year as well, as I make a donation for each poppy sold to a worthy cause. THE BRITISH LEGION.
Anyway, i`m hoping I won`t leave it too long next time I blog
Catch you all later

Christmas dates for shop.

Good morning everyone, just back from the school run and what a lovely crisp morning.  No rain and not alot of wind, it was just lovely having a brisk walk, up to the school.  The christmas street lights are up and on, so it`s beginning to feel alot more like christmas is around the corner.
I`m going to close my shop early this year, as the schools seem to have alot more going on, with the run up to christmas. 
I`m going to close on

Monday 10th December
and open on
Tuesday 8th January 2013

I`ve started to prepare and make some new lines for the new year and so i`m going to give you a peek at the heart brooches i`ve just finished.

I`ve padded these out a little, so they stand out a bit more.
If your interested in buying these before they go into my shop in the new year, you can contact me by email.
Anyway i`m off to finish off one of the sock creatures i`m in the middle of completing.
Have a great day!

Yeah i`ve been posted on Laura`s Show and Tell

Good afternoon all and hope you`re not getting tooooo wet with all the rain.
The kids came back home from school soaked, like drowned rats and feeling sorry for themselves.  Poor dears!
Anyway I got a suprised email today from Laura at bugs and fishes to tell me that she had put me onto her show and tell,
i`m sooooo chuffed to bits and had forgotten all about this, as i`d sent her some pics of the lovely felt owls i`d made using the felt she sells a little while back.
I`m hoping to make a start on the felt goodies, I showed a little teaser of a couple of days ago, so hoping next week I can show these off to you.
Have a good evening

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has bought one of my felt poppy brooches.
I`ve been able to donate £20 so far to The British Legion.
Please keep buying from either my ebay shop or you can contact me by email, for this worthy cause.   These are for sale all year round.
Thank you.

Little teaser for January

Good afternoon everyone, just a little update and a bit of a teaser for what I have instore for january.
These brooches i`ve just started, so I can only show you a smidging of whats to come, but as it`s Valentines Day, then Mother`s Day, these would be ideal for both.  I`m hoping to have these completed in the next 2 weeks as my customers orders are coming in thick and fast, so I proberly won`t get them finished before then.
 When completed i`ll pop these on here first before they go into my ebay shop, so you can have a little look and also a chance to purchase one if you wish.
Until next time.
Ta Ta for now, Val xxx
