New Tatting Pattern

Good morning everyone. Hope you're well on this cold Sunday. I've got lots to talk about today. So first things first: I have a new tatting pattern online.

For the past few days I've been working on a pdf of my rose bookmark pattern and after a lot of drawing, writing, proof reading and more proof reading, I've finally published it. I really hope you like it. This happens to be one of my favourite designs I've created since I started tatting.


Find it on Craftsy and Etsy.

Next: I have something exciting to share.

I will be opening my very own online boutique this month.


It will be packed full of my tatted lace jewellery, home decor, bookmarks, tatting patterns and much more. Can't wait to show you all!

As well as all this I've been busy creating new items:


'Rosa' bookmark in a stunning mix of raspberry, yellow, peach, purple and green. This was created using the bookmark pattern above.


'Janessa' bookmark in lilac and grape. This uses another of my motif patterns, available here.


'Valencia' napkin rings in foxglove purple.


'Amaryllis' beaded pendant in variegated pink.


'Christina' earrings in blush pink and ivory.

More new creations coming soon.

Have a lovely Sunday,

Handmade Monday is here

Happy Handmade Monday!

This is the first annual Handmade Monday. Similar to Black Friday / Cyber Monday, you'll be able to find lots of handmade sellers with sales on. 

So what am I doing?

~SALE~

Well first of all I'm running a 20% OFF store wide SALE in my Zibbet shop. Prices have already been marked down.


You can also get 20% OFF in my Etsy shop. Use code TRHANDMADE20 in the coupon box during checkout.


Both are valid today only up to 11am EST / 4pm GMT

Find more sale announcements today on twitter.

~Competition~

I will also be running one or more competitions and specials throughout the day.

Keep watching my twitter page and my facebook fan page for details of these. I will be doing some on each so if you're only on one of these two sites, you'll still have the opportunity to enter.

The 1st competition will be at 10:45am GMT / 5:45am EST on twitter.

Have fun today!

I'm In A Magazine!

I'm in a magazine!

A few weeks ago I received a message asking for some Christmas decorations for a GoodHomes magazine photo shoot (UK publication). Exciting! So I made them up, sent them off and here is the result.


My small white and silver beaded tatted lace snowflake is on the bottom left of p96 in the GoodHomes magazine Dec / Jan 2014 issue, along with some other Etsy sellers.

I was literally dancing round the room when I found it in there.

This issue has just come out so it will be in shops for a while.

On a completely unrelated note: As we're getting closer to Christmas, I've added some new collections to my Folksy shop. There's now a section for £5 items and Under, then I have Under £10, Under £20 and Under £50.

Have a great day,
Heather
