End of an Era!

Well not really quite that dramatic but it is the end of the May Listers Challenge and knowing there is lots going on in June I have not elected to join in with the next round though I know many of my fellow listers have.
So here is a little selection from my May Challenge. . .
And here are a few items from the other very talented Folksy Listers.

You can click on the picture to pop over and visit these talented artists shops.
It has been a fun month and hopefully it had brought in some sales for the people who have put in all the effort listing and blogging and promoting.
I hope those of you that continue into June have a wondeful time.
Tomorrow I will give you all the details of my 200+ twitter followers giveaway.
Thats all for now - Fiona :o)

Browns and Greens . . .

This is todays offering over at my Folksy Shop. A pair of earrings made with crystals and spacers on beadalon. I particularly like the colours I'm a bit of a brown and green person recently i've discovered.
Yesterday I added these earrings which I am also quite fond of. They are jade and silver coloured spacer beads. Very simple and delicate.

Pop over and see what else I have in store.

Nearing the end!

Well it's coming to the end of the May Listers Challenge and everyone seems to be keeping on top of things. 4 days to go. It hardly seems like a month has passed.
I have listed a jade and silver memory wire bracelet.

And below is a selection of the items listed by fellow folksy listers.

Blues and Greens and a sneaky pink in there too!
Pop over to their shops and take a look at all their other fabulous items.
Other BLUE news we had today is that our baby is a boy.
So our toddler will be a big brother to a little brother in around 20 weeks. Makes it easy as we have lots of things already that will be suitable. (And a sneaky thought did cross my mind that while they still young they can share the big room and I can covertly operate from the small room!) But don't tell hubby I said that. ;o)

I have a new banner, in my shop and now here on my blog. (Though if anyone knows how to stop it looking like it's popping over the edge i'd be grateful for the info).
I am so pleased with it. It would not have been possible without the help of the lovely Helen Jane of H J D Crafts.
She has a wonderful supply of bits and pieces for crafting in her shop. She also has a shop full of beautiful items for the home. Pop over and have a look for yourself.
I particularly like this coffee jar cover - only we don't drink coffee which is a shame.
There are so many lovely people to be found on Folksy it really is worth popping over for a look around.
Until next time - Fiona @ Christals Creations.

Busy times. . .

Well it's been a busy few days in our household what with one thing and another. And i've been neglecting my blog in the process. . . OPPS!
But i'm back. And I am pleased to say I had a sale in my FOLKSY shop yesterday.
And today I have added a similar item as my May listers challenge. It is a pink freshwater pearl bracelet with silver spacers and heart shaped clasp.
Perfect for a wedding, christening or special occassion.
There have been lots of fantastic listings going on in the Mayhemmers Challenge and it really has brought out some fantastic items from people.
Do pop over to Folksy and take a peek.
Until next time: Fiona @ Christals Creations.

Sea Breeze. . .

After naming the bracelet I added for todays May challenge 'Sea Breeze' I thought i'd see if I could find some other sea things to add to todays blog.
I have these two also available on Folksy.
A chunky nautical themed bracelet, perfect for the summer and a children's seaside themed lariat. Can be used as a necklace looped or twisted or as a belt to add a touch of fun.
There are many many seaside themed accessories for house and home on the Folksy website.
It's definately worth popping over for a look to see what you can find.

It's Listing Time . . .

Well we are all doing a good job in the May Listers challenge. Some people are generating a few sales others are having fun trying to keep up with all the listings.
I have listed a new item this morning perfect for a wedding or special occassion.

There are not many listings yet today as it is quite early but i'll show you what the early bird has brought in. Be sure to pop over to Folksy later and check all the other listings.

Here is a pretty selection of what is on offer today. There are so many beautiful and affordable one of a kind things on sale here that I wonder why we are all still spending so much time on the high street?!
I am off out this evening for a birthday celebration with my neighbour so I shan't be back to show you anymore later I am afraid.
Have a good day - See you soon.

May Listers - Day 16

You saw my earlier listing today picturing the bracelet I listed as part of this months challenge.

I had decided this evening to add a 'showcase' of non-jewellery items. This proved quite hard as there are so many of us but here is what I pulled together.

Gorgeous material from Chumley, Pretty beads from SweetPryoAngel and Wine glass charms from Fairly Girly.
Short and sweet from me tonight, it has been a long but productive day. Lots of items on ebay from our clear out, bread made, lemon meringue made, garden tidied, bins washed, lots of washing and washing up done, the list goes on.
So night all and see you tomorrow.

Sunday Lazy Sunday

Well it is a fairly nice day over in our little part of the world. Hubby has been out sorting garden debris with the help of the little one and i've been busy listing my de-clutter on ebay. I still have lots to do but it's a start. I have also managed to get my listing up on Folksy.
Todays offering is a glass pearl bracelet made to match the earrings I listed yesterday.
I am off to make some bread now but I shall be back later to show you some of the lovelies listed by the May listers.

Sunny Start!

What a beautiful morning it was when I got up today. Sun shinning, blue sky and blossom everywhere I looked. I even hung my washing outside again after all these cold days of having it strewn around the house.
My day was made even brighter when my friend came for a cuppa and playtime for the boys and she bought a bracelet and earring set she had seen on Folksy.

I was also very excited as the postman knocked with a parcel to sign for. It was my new revolving earring display for parties and stalls.

I was very excited by it. I can't wait to try it out now.

I have also managed to keep up with my listing a day challenge and today I have added some earrings to match yesterdays bracelet.This is my item for today. I am off to do some bits and pieces with the husband and sprog now but I plan on coming back later to show you lots of the exciting items on the May Listers pages today.
