a butterfLy, for me!?

hey peeps! here is a quick little post about a brooch i won from Laura's Jewellery via Facebook. Laura makes pretty handmade jewellery and ive followed her on twitter for a while now. she recently had a 'market night' on her facebook page, where she offered some jewellery at some great prices, and also offered some freebies to the first person to comment on the photos of those items, and i was quick as a flash and managed to be the first to comment on a pretty little butterfly brooch, so YEY!

here is the brooch, how sweet!?

how do yah like the brooch then, ey!? pretty innit. my mam really likes it actually, and said it would look lovely on a scarf, so i might give it to her, she would like that! Thanx, Laura!

look at Lauras Jewellery facebook page:
and follow her on twitter, yeah:

have yourself a curly christmas...

ok, so this post title might be a bit confusing, but never fear, it will all become clear.

again, this blog post features the kind and talented Tim Easley, who offered to send some of his own christmas cards out to his facey b friends, and as im a fan of Tims stuff, i asked for one.

he also did a special christmas 'moustache' doodle in the middle of the card, and asked what each individual person wanted, which was cool. i asked for a really curly one, and thats what i got! first though, heres the front of the card:
heres the inside of the card, look at that curly wurly 'tache:
i love the card, thanx so much, Tim! merry xmas to you, too!

do check out Tims etsy store:
have a peek at him on twitter:
and have a look at his facey b page:
