Okies it's that time of year, Christmas is coming and this year is drawing to a close..... I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has bought any of my Kokokelli Jewellery & Greeting Cards this year (it really does mean so much to me) and to everyone who has supported me this year including YOU my fans and followers!
So this is me Womble wishing you all a very Kokokelli Khristmas and a very Crafty New Year!!
Okies so this year is nearly over and its been quite a weird one for me. As most of you know I was made redundant from my job of 6yrs in March and still haven't been able to find a new one as of yet :o( so here's hoping the New Year brings me one. On a good note though I started selling my Kokokelli Handmade Jewellery & Greeting Cards officially in June and have managed to make about £400 online and through friends & family so many thanks to everyone who has bought my stuff it really does mean alot to me :o) so hopefully throughout next year I'll be able to up my business even more to make alot more money (fingers crossed lol).
So as a big thank you I've decided to do a HUGE 'New Year' Giveaway over on my Kokokelli Fan Page on facebook and her's a sneaky peek at wot you can win! :o)
To enter all you need to do is go over to my Kokokelli Fan Page and comment on the giveaway photo stating what you would like to see more of over at Kokokelli over the New Year :o) eg. types of jewellery/cards or what kind of colours etc.... you only have until Sunday 19th December to get your comments in then winners will be drawn on Monday 20th December so I can get the prizes posted out ready for the New Year :o) sorry but this giveaway is for UK FANS ONLY as the postage would cost me far too much :o( I'll try and do another giveaway for everyone early in the New Year.
Just thought I'd share with you guys some of the lovely custom orders I've had from some of the lovely sellers over at Folksy and as you will see they certainly exceeded my expectations :o) so make sure you check out their shops to see more gorgeous goodies!! :o) xXx
Okies so if you've been following my blog recently you'll know all about the Diary 2011 Project which has been going on for the last few years. It involves crafters from all around the world designing a page for everyday of the year including a link to their shop or page, they are then emailed over and then eventually printed off all together thus creating the Diary Project for that year. I finally received my copy the other day and I designed the December 2011 month page :o) you can see a pic of the finished product in the flesh below........
I really enjoyed taking part and I look forward to taking part again in the future Diary Projects :o) wots even better too is if you take part you can get a discount when you purchase your copy/copies plus if you want to you can purchase them on a disc so you can print off as many copies as you want at a copy shop :o)

Okies so I was lucky enough to be given 3 separate Custom Card Orders for my Tag Cards (which I was mega happy about!) and I've now finished all 3 :o) the first order was for a set of 12 cards and the lady asked for something with stars in red/white/silver so I created this.....
The 2nd order was for a lady who had a youngish family so she wanted this to be incorporated into the design, she wanted 5 cards and she also wanted them to be cute and fun with reds & whites. So this is the design I came up with for her :o) .....
My 3rd order was for a lady who liked robins and was looking for something to represent her family as a whole. She wanted 8 cards using traditional colours yet with a fun theme. This is the design I came up with for her :o) .....
Every customer was really pleased with their orders and one of them was even from USA! So I've had one of my first international customers too!! Lookout world Kokokelli is on a mission!! If anyone else is interested in a Christmas Card Custom Order please get in touch :o) xXx
Okies so my gorgeous Dr's lil sis Stacey's Bulldog Missy has had her final litter of gorgeous lil puppies!! There were 9 all together but unfortunately 2 didn't develop properly in the womb and died a couple of weeks into the pregnancy :o( so she gave birth to 7. One had breathing problems and unfortunately died a couple of days ago :o( so she has 6 healthy puppies 5 boys and 1 girl :o) so here are the first lot of pics I promised everyone!! I'll be adding more as they grow up xXx
