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 Notonthehighstreet.com 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: www.notonthehighstreet.com/clarycedesign 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 - www.folksy.com/shops/ClaryceDesign
Other news: I will be launching my own website in the next couple of weeks, which I promise to blog about then!!
