giveaway & 45 days!!

hello again :) this post has taken a lot lot longer than I wanted!! All sorts of things got in the way-- i was ill, i was waiting for my new camera to arrive, when the camera did arrive, i couldnt transfer my pictures to the computer, had to wait for my sd card reader to arrive, it arrived at home instead of uni, had to wait even longer for it... but finally, I can finish!!

I have lots and lots of new jewelry in the shop!! Im very excited about it. I've tried to keep the prices really reasonable too- for a ring its around £2.50, for a necklace its £5.00 (these arent exact because of etsy working in dollars!)- so i hope people can get them as cute gifts for christmas even if you dont have many pennys!!

All of the clay figures are still there too, and i am making some christmas ones at the moment :)

So, to celebrate, I am having a giveaway!! The item I have chosen for the giveaway is my wooden star ring, plus some little extra goodies i always like to put in packages. I like to add in pretty little extras and decorative bits and pieces for the items I sell too!! I have made lots of these wooden rings, there are hearts aswell as stars, so if you are not the lucky winner, you can find some in my shop :)

Thank you for all your kind words in regards to my rant in my last post. I am feeling much more postsive about my work now, and your kindness really helped cheer me up :) I made my complaint, as did others (she made another girl break down and cry in the middle of a seminar since my tutorial too!!) so hopefully something will be done.

Since my last post, I got ill with a chest infection, and very very embarrassingly fainted onto my tutor during a seminar. very embarrassing. he had to catch me!!! but after lots of rest and warm blackcurrant and soup and ice cream I am feeling much much better.

And I am ever so excited about my new camera!! Im still trying to work out how to use it, but me and poppy have been messing around taking lots of pictures :)

For uni I have been making little animations with a little man called timothy, who was made out of thread on the paper my gingerbread man was in one lunch time. I learning how to animate which is very exciting, im not very good but I like the shakey, old effect my un-skilled-ness gives it!! hehe :)

i have done lots of christmas shopping too!! eee, im so excited, only 45 days!!!! i have also been buying myself lots of big big cosy jumpers to keep myself warm, and making warm homely dinners (using my new cute owl salt and pepper shakers!!) and brownies , and making plans with my family and my David to visit christmas markets and fairs. And I have glittery nails and a hello kitty advent calender, waiting for the first door to be opened!! Im so very very excited.

How are you all?? Have you started planning and preparing for christmas yet??

love x ♥
