I’m feeling particularly pleased with myself. I made a new Light Catcher; my first one in hues of yellow. It is so pretty, like a little ray of sunshine. And it’s a gift and is just awaiting the final touches before being sent away to the recipient.
(The yellow colour in the background is more accurate than the subdued colour in the circles – yellow is hard to photograph apparently.)

And, still on the subject of feeling particularly pleased with myself, I made a new page for my blog, it’s there sitting on the black bar beneath the heading picture, can you see it?
It’s called ‘The Contented Crafter’s Gift Shop’ and it lists all my creative work in the various formats that are available for sale or on commission. I know several of you have been asking and waiting and – well – here it is at last with apologies for the delay.
The shop page also has links to two other sites where some friends sell their particularly fine wares. Just in case you are looking and need inspiration……. I had this idea of a global support network that may or may not have merit. This is its small beginning.
Now if you wouldn’t mind, and if you have the time [I know how busy you are!] I would so appreciate you taking a few moments to look and to comment with your feedback – particularly about layout, quality of photos etc; about ease of understanding the different headings or not, anything that needs fine tuning, anything that does or doesn’t appeal, make sense or offends or delights you I would really like to know about. What do you think about linking to other sites? Would you look? Did you look?
As a thank you, your name will go in the draw* for a Single Strand Light-Catcher. The winner can choose one of these:
The blue single strand light-catcher is made with large blue *chrysacolla rounds interspersed with graded blue glass square beads from which hangs a 40 mm AAA crystal sphere. Smaller crystals and beads hang randomly from the silver chain along with a few charms. Catcher measures approx 50 cm long.
*’Chrysacolla purifies the environment and can work to eliminate negativity within a person. It imparts an energy conducive to stabilising the environment and rebuilding relationships’. Love Is In The Earth~A Kaleidoscope of Crystals
The pink light-catcher is a 40 mm AAA faceted crystal sphere hanging from a run of acrylic heart beads and very pretty white ceramic beads painted with pink flowers. A variety of clear and coloured beads,faceted crystals and charms makes up the remainder of the main and subsidiary chains. This catcher measures approx 60 cm long.
*the draw: is conducted randomly with the aid of my favourite coffee cup, strips of paper with names written on them, a vigorous shaking procedure followed by a tipping motion and the randomly placed paw of one Orlando King, the worlds best marmalade cat. [Siddy isn’t allowed to take part, in the practise run, he ate the pieces of paper.]
