Giveaway - win a months free advertising!

Would you like to win a feature all about your work and a months free advertising on this blog, just like January's lucky winner?  Details are at the end of this post (it's easy peasy and open to everybody!)

The winner of the December advertising Spot is...



I was really excited when I drew this months winner as she comes from North Devon, I lived in Instow for 4 years and then Bideford for a year before relocating to Hertfordshire. So when Lorraine mentioned on her website that she sells her Jewellery in the fantastic Bideford Pannier Market approximately 20ft from my old house I was stunned - small world or what!



North Devon is beautiful, with gorgeous and dramatic coatslines and cliffs, it's a great place to surf too, and it's full of welcoming and creative people, just like this months winner, Lorraine who is behind the Folksy and Misi shops, Fairly Girly.  Lorraine is a part-time working mum and makes all this pretty jewellery from her North Devon home.  She uses a selection of lampwork beads, crystals, glass beads and silver. This collection of bracelets above has to be my favourite, I love the Keats poem that Lorraine uses as her background - just a little excerpt but it's so sweet.
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:

Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness...


This pretty bookmark and earrings would also make a girly valentines day gift - take a look at the Fairly Girly shops for more jewellery featuring these cute little hearts  http://www.fairlygirly.com/
