My Very Own Website

As my regular followers know, I have a number of websites through which I sell my designs - Etsy, Ebay, Folksy and Not on the High Street. However now I have my very own website that isn't linked to a hosting site.

It may not be as sophisticated as the other sites, but it's mine :)

This week I am going to be making a series of screen videos of how I create my designs. It is fascinating stuff and will give you all an insight into how all my creations begin.

I will upload the videos to here and my website, so be sure to check back and take a look.

Here is the link:

Hope you will drop by.....

This One's for Stephanie

My dear friend Stephanie gently chastised me the other day for not updating my blog!! She was perfectly within her rights to do so as it has been a disgracefully long time since I did - inspite of my assurances back in October that I would be doing so on a regular basis.

Maybe 2011 will be more prolific as far as blogging is concerned!!

So here is a brief update on life in Claryce Design's world. Not just for Stephanie but for my other loyal followers - all 8 of you!!!

The biggest development in my small home based business was last November when I was invited to join which is a relatively small community of online sellers that predominantly sell their own creations. The site is well worth a visit as they are very strict about the quality of items sold and shop presentation - making it a pleasure to browse :)

The direct link to my shop is: and here is a sneek peak at what you might find there....

This image links in rather nicely with an update on new products. Shown here is one of my new lavender hearts. I transfer my images onto calico, hand sew them, fill them with authentic french lavender and lentils and finish them off with ribbon and a mother of pearl button. They look lovely hung on a door pull or peg board. You can also slip them in a drawer to scent the contents. Beautiful to look at and enjoyable to make. Here is a better photo...

Also new this season are postcards with my images on!! I originally had these produced purely for promotional reasons, but I loved the quality of them so much I decided to start selling them - and I am so glad I did!! I have 6 designs available so far. Four spring designs with flowers and birds and 2 with swallows on. I sell them individually and also in sets in a gorgeous gift tin. They are very environmentally friendly as the postcards are printed on recycled cards, they are send without envelopes and also the gift tin is reusable - how great is that!!

For all my other new tag designs you can also visit Etsy (click on button above) or Folksy -

Other news: I will be launching my own website in the next couple of weeks, which I promise to blog about then!!
