The Shop is Open!

I'm happy today to be able to reveal the new look for our shop:

It's not wildly different to how it was before, but it does make more sense!  You can now navigate around our products more easily via some funky new categories, and you can even browse our items by size, so you can now go straight to other items in a size that will complement your piece.  Ideal if you have, say, a specific cabochon you want to use and need a tray to set it onto.

The work is not all done - there are a few small blips to iron out (apologies in advance if you bump into those!), but we are getting there.  

We hope you like our new graphics and new banner!  All lovingly created by yours truly.  And the ladybird - relevance? Well, the pictures in that area will be a moveable feast, but since my little girl, who is five, has recently declared that she wants to build a ladybird hotel as soon as they arrive this year, we thought they were a fitting symbol of our little shop's refresh just in time for the sunnier days that are just around the corner!

We're very excited about these developments.  Ahh, there's nothing like a good spruce-up! :D

Uh, er, Happy New Year... *blush*

Hellooo!!  Yes, we are back to the land of blog!   We hope your 2012 has got off to a great start and that you're geared up for a busy year full of designing and creating.   

We have very been busy, and certain things, such as this poor blog and our Facebook page have been terribly neglected of late as a result.  Apologies if you were hoping to find some new projects, do check back soon and we will have some fab new ideas to share.

The good news is that the shop website is getting a refresh so it will be easier to find what you need.   That means there may be a little bit of downtime on the shop in the next few days, but hopefully it won't be too disruptive.

We are constantly looking for new and innovative products to enhance your makes so we also hope to be presenting a few of our finds in the coming weeks.

But for now, I'll leave you with a little graphic that we recently made for the website.  Make sure you visit the shop soon!
