My first ever 'Featured seller' interview

Please click here to read my first ever 'Featured seller' interview on Traceyann's blog  http://artisansilver.blogspot.com.
ArtisanSilver offers gorgeous handcrafted jewellery and keepsakes including silver designs inspired by nature. 
My favourite item in Traceyann's Folksy shop is this 'Love me Love me not' Necklace.


Prizes claimed.

You may remember my last giveaway (I was giving away a personalised silver necklace to the winner and a small keyring to the runner up), well both prizes have now been claimed and here they are:

The winner Katie has chosen to add the name of her son Seth on her necklace and the runner up Jo wanted her name on her little keyring:


I think both winners were happy with their prizes, here are the comments I have received:

My necklace arrived!  I LOVE it! xD thankyou so much xD  Katie x 

Thank you so much for my gift, it is really pretty! Jo X 

The lovely Katie from MadBrilliantIdeas has even done a blog post about her prize and my products, please visit her blog to read it for yourself (thank you so much Katie, it has made my day!)


Thanks again to everybody taking part. Click here to enter my brand new Blog Giveaway.

How cute...

I have come across this lovely 'Sitting Stanley - cloth doll pixie' while browsing through Folksy so I thought I would share it with you. It is sold by Smockerysmart and I think it is beautiful!

Photo Necklaces - New Designs

I have been busy with my new Personalised Treasures shop and have been neglecting Personalised Photo Jewellery a bit...
To make up for it, I have just listed 3 new photo necklaces! In these designs, I have combined photo charms with stamped name charms.
There is more to come soon so keep following.

And the winner is...

As I excitedly reported earlier, I have now found 50 followers (41 from my Personalised Photo Jewellery blog and 9 from my Personalised Treasures blog) and so it finally is the time to draw one lucky winner to receive my silver personalised necklace.
My 2 year old daughter has been a great assistant and here it is...



The lucky winner is 'Madbrilliant ' who will be contacted shortly. Congratulations!

But wait...this can't be it? I feel so sorry for the other 49 that didn't win! Therefore, I have decided to draw one more winner who will receive a small personalised gift:


that winner is 'Glass primitif'. I will be getting in touch shortly. Congratulations.




Thank you to everyone who chose to become my blog follower. Don't be sad if you didn't win! I have 2 brand new competitions coming up soon (one for each blog)... so watch this space. Thanks again. Martina x

Competition now closed...winner will be announced soon!

Yeeeaaahhh! I have now reached 50 followers (from both of my blogs in total) and so the Silver Necklace Giveaway is now closed. I'm just preparing the tickets (and looking for a suitable hat) and the lucky winner will be announced soon. So watch this space! I'm sooo excited!

Nectarine Cream Flan

I was just flicking through the free Asda magazine when I came across a lovely picture of a Nectarine Cream Flan. It looked really tasty, very summery so I thought I would have a go on making one. It was quite simple, although I'm not a big fan of doing pastry flan cases (it never comes out right). Surprisingly, this one turn out quite nice and tasted delicious. Pick up your free mag in Asda and try it yourself (or email me for the recipe details). Here are some photos to tickle your taste buds...





And to continue the 'flan' theme, here are some lovely handmade creations I found on Folksy. Click on images below for more details on each item.
