December News!

Hey everyone :)

I can't believe Christmas is almost here!!! I've got December's sales to announce today and also the winner of November's Customer Creation Challenge.

Also, if you're thinking of doing some Christmas shopping in my online shop please keep in mind delivery time for international orders. Canada Post is going to be busy with Christmas mail so delivery times will probably take a bit longer than the 7-14 business day estimate. Best to order sooner rather than later.

Here's a pic from the coffee shop I'm working at today (Revel in Stratford, ON). Isn't their tree lovely?! I had to share a photo :)

Sales for December

Okay, on to this month's sales... Hope you like em'!

Celtic Star 3 - $4.49

Celtic Star 2 - $4.49

Silhouette Dove Set - $5.99


Heart of Light - $4.49

November's winner is...

A big congratulations to Carola!!! Thanks so much for your contribution to last month's challenge :)

Here's a link to Carola's blogpost for these two pieces. Love the compositions in these. In the first card is Hanging Droplet Set (part of unmounted sheet - Water Effects 1) and in the second card is Raindrops (part of unmounted sheet - Water Effects 2).

Well, that's it for me... Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope all goes well for you wherever you are :)

Until next time,

  7. Sorry I haven't been around much lately, Ryn, but I've been very busy and dealing with lots of stuff... You've got some gorgeous new art on here since my last visit, and it's great seeing the use people are making of your stamps.

    I've just uploaded my latest effort with your water droplets one - a simple card to say thank you to the teacher of our soap making course which comes to an end this week. If you'd like to see it, it's here:

    If you trawl back through my blog, you will see my recycled mini-album which I have now finished! I am thrilled with how it turned out.

    Hope you are OK and not rushed off your feet!

  8. Thanks for your return visit, Ryn, and I'm glad you like the card I made for the teacher - I gave it to her tonight after we'd all signed it and she was very pleased! Last class tonight, until I do another module of felt making in Feb. Thanks for the info about posting the card on your blog - I'll have a go at it now!


  9. Congratulations Carola! Lovely cards :)
    Oh I do like these stamps that are on sale, unfortunately no news yet from the tax organisation! Busy time for everyone now, I hope to be able to enter the December challenge. I should be able to squeeze in a bit of time to produce something that I can show!
    Lovely "natural" tree - you can still see the tree and I love the non-breakable things in it (I have small children...). Or at least it looks non-breakable. (Oh that is where time is going now - making (non breakable) Christmas/tree decorations!
    Happy Holidays allready!


Thank you for visiting! I would love for you to leave me a comment :)
