Post-Christmas Thoughts

Purple iridescent champagne chocolate truffles

Take a peek at these magical beauties that were hiding in my stocking this week; purple iridescent champagne chocolate truffles that are almost too stunning to eat!
I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday! This week I’ve been receiving some lovely emails from folk who have received some of my designed totes as presents, and it is great to hear kind words from happy customers! I’ve also managed to refill the stock cupboard this week, and I’ve spent a few hours experimenting with tweaking my illustrated pocket mirrors. (I’ll post about them soon, once I’ve finalised my plans!)

Have a wonderful New Years, and may the coming year be full of lovely things!

Merry Christmas!

 Roasted Chestnuts

The Christmas season seems to have arrived with amazing swiftness this year, and December has flown by in a blur of tinsel and gift wrap. I wanted to take this moment before I settle down to eat some roasted chestnuts by the fire, to say a huge thank you to all the friends, family, beloved customers, new followers, and fans  who have made 2012 a fantastic year all round! I whole heartedly wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year!

Pocket Mirrors, by Ceridwen Hazelchild Design

I already have a few new products and designs lined up for 2013, along with some exciting updates in the next week about changing my business name!  The New Year will bring an expansion of our online shops and I will hopefully be participating in more craft and design fairs, so watch this space!

Whilst our online shop is readily available for any new orders, all orders made during the next week will be posted on 2nd January, so that the Post Office and I can have a well deserved rest for a few days!

Jo Clark Design Christmas Cards

I love these cards by Jo Clark. What better way to celebrate Christmas than with grumpy cats adorned with festive hats?

Susan Horth Jewellery and Sculptures

One of my favourite makers recently is Susan Horth, who constructs exquisite animal and insect sculptures and jewellery pieces from woven wire and bead jewels. Each piece is stunningly detailed and surprisingly life-like. They seem so precious and intricate that time can easily slip away whilst you gaze at them. I am particularly fond of the little bee and lizard brooches.

Alice Palace Illustration

The last few weeks has brought with it a few birthdays for some lovely Sagittarian friends. Even though we may not live nearby any more, having moved to various parts of the country to pursue our dreams, we try to send tokens and cards through the post at regular intervals, and birthdays are one occasion which can’t be missed! I am a firm believer in card-giving, especially when it means you can support smaller companies and independent artists. One of my favourite illustrators in recent months is the independent greeting card company called Alice Palace.

I recommend taking a good look through their website to peruse the selection of quirky colourful designs.
