New Lace Earrings

Good afternoon. I hope everyone is fine.

As you might know I had my first Christmas craft fair over the weekend. We didn't get many people through the doors but if was fun nonetheless. I'm now working on stock for the next one on the 10th December. This one is in a different area of Kent so we'll see how it goes.

~New Listings~

As the title of this post suggests, I have just listed some new lace earrings (click the pictures to go to the listings):

These elegant tatted earrings above were created using black cotton thread, gold seed beads and black glass teardrop beads. I think they would look great at parties and proms.

Here is the white version:

~Christmas Orders~

I've listed the Christmas shipping deadlines in my Etsy, Folksy and Artfire shops. They are recommended dates so order early to avoid disappointment. 

Right I must get back to the tatting. Have a nice day.

Christmas Decorations And Events

Hello everyone. Hope you are all having a nice day.

So what have I been up to? Well I've been busy creating items for orders and craft fairs as well as new pieces that are now up on Etsy.

~Christmas Craft Fairs~

My first Christmas craft fair for this year will be next Sunday (27th Nov) at Westgate Hall in Canterbury, Kent. Find more details here. If you're in the area, come along. There will be lots of crafts stalls and fun things for the kids to do. I've been working on a new line of housewares that I hope to start selling here.

The second Craft fair I'm attending is the Past and Present Christmas Fair at St. John's Methodist Church, Whitstable, Kent. 10th Dec, 10am to 4pm.

I'm really looking forward to these fairs.

~New item pictures~

I've been taking new pictures for some of my creations. Here's two of my Christmas decorations (click the pictures for the Etsy listings):

This last one seems to be popular as it sold twice in the same day!

~New creations~

This red tatted Christmas decoration is getting a lot of love. At only $5 this makes a great addition to any Christmas tree. Find it here.

I've also made a large silver snowflake. This one will be back in stock as soon as my new silver thread arrives, hopefully in the next few days.

As well as snowflakes, I've also just started tatting Christmas trees. It took a few goes to work out a pattern that looked right and this is the result. The gold decoration below is available here:

These metallic creations are available in other colours. At the moment I have gold, red, blue and black. Feel free to contact me if you want a custom listing for your colour choice or for a different number of decorations. I love custom orders.

I've also started listing these on Folksy for UK customers here.
