I'm really sorry for not blogging for over a month! I've been incredibly busy with college work and my Dad has unfortunately got very ill so obviously he's my main concern right now.
Its just been a bit hectic but hopefully over the Christmas holidays I'll be finding more wonderful handmade creations to blog about! =]
And remember, do leave me a comment if you want me to advertise your online shop in this blog.
Merry Christmas. =]

This online shop isn't officially open but when I saw the blog of sneak peeks of what will be avaliable to buy I got really excited and had to blog!
My awesome friend Kirstie is running this shop and she is extremely talented with Polymer Clay. I have seen all these little cakes and believe me they look so much more amazing when they're right in front of you! As you can see from her pictures all the pieces of cake/pie fit together!
Also as I've already seen them I can reassure you that they are made in the highest quality. No finger prints, scratches, dents or marks and she spends a long time paying attention to detail to make them look realistic and pretty!
I like how she has picked a popular theme in jewellery and completely transformed it into a "gothic" style. I can see her jewellery becoming very popular =]
She's working on the website at the moment however if you become a follower of her blog, you will see that she is happy to do custom orders while the site is being made. =]
Please do check her out!

These plushies are so cute!
Featuring one character named Alfie who likes to dress up each day as different people. As you can see from above, you can find him dressed as a dinosaur, a ninja and even Batman's sidekick Robin! I admire how each photo has been shot to capture each personality of Alfie's characters :)
Other plushies to be found such as weather clouds with different personalities and Pies that are Pie-rates!
Fun, humourous and original plushies. Definitely go check the shop out!

I am now starting to update again. I have no excuse =p Just been a bit lazy the past week!
As you can see from the earlier post that I have written about the same shop again. If you've already been written about, I am very happy to do it again :) If you've got new products you want to show off or a sale/promotion then please contact me with all the details email@example.com :)
And of course, I am always looking for new online shops, just e-mail me with a link and tell me what you make. :)
My Folksy shop is back online so please have a snout ;D
That's about it!
Since I first blogged about Kawaii Boutique, Sam (the genius behind the store) has added more things to the website! A video page giving you lovely people tutorials on how to make certain things using Polymer Clay. Currently only one video is up which is about making cupcakes. Everyone loves cupcakes! Very useful if you're new to Polymer Clay. Happy Japanese Pop music in the background, so you feel like you're getting your groove on aswell as learning. xD
More beautiful jewellery has been added :) Lots of limited Halloween creations made just for October.. yeah, bit pointless telling you that NOW however, imagine all the goodies she'll make for Christmas!
Also check out the custom items page. :) The penguin necklace is adorable!

The one thing that I dislike about Folksy is that I can't use HTML on the main page and therefore, I can't write about my shop TERMMMZZ. So please, have a read before you buy :) I'm a nice seller! ;D
Days I am able to post: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Fridays. All orders over the weekend will be posted the Following Monday.
I will contact you the date of when I will send it to you or contact if for some reason I can't make it to the post office. (For example, away from home, bank holidays, bad weather conditions, you get the picture ;D)
I accept international buyers! Please check each items listing for P&P cost. Please allow up to 20 days for your items to arrive. Again, I send by first class and will obtain a certificate of postage. Sorry - I do not accept refunds from international buyers at this time.
Please leave feedback once the item has arrived to you in satisfactory condition! I'll then leave feedback for you :) If you're not happy with what was sent (for example, it arrived broken) please e-mail me straight away at email@example.com (More likely to check my e-mails first!) with your Contact Name, Address, Telephone Number AND item name. Please also state the reason for return. I will e-mail you back with my address.
Items must be returned in original packaging and within 7 days of receipt. Once I have received the return item, I will give you a full refund of purchase cost and original postage cost.
I hope that covers everything! Please leave any comments if you want to know anything else. You're always welcome to message me on Folksy or e-mail me. :)

A lovely range of handmade coin pouches with amazing surface designs! Honestly, each page made me more and more excited with how adorable the designs were!
The "Kawaii Cuties Pouch" is my favourite (third picture down listed above!) as it features all my favourite cute things: polka dots, flowers and animals!
She makes other items out of felt such as pins (the pumpkins are very sweet!) garlands (great for different seasons or holidays!) and even magnets!
She also has a range of earrings mostly designs of nature; leaves, flowers, deers and owls!

Hello everyone ! :)
You may or may not know that "Ducky Charms Jewellery" is ran by moi!
I am currently on eBay, however the fees are driving me MAD. My balance is currently at £11 for just this month so far! The irritating part is when you pay fees for items that don't even sell in the end.
So I have decided to open a Folksy account. I was a bit iffy at first, because I had no luck with Etsy. However judging from some of the handmade shops I've looked at, people are having some luck with it! :)
So, I'll be slowly adding items on to my Folksy. You can find me here http://www.folksy.com/shops/duckycharmsjewellery :)
I've only got two Lego Men necklaces for sale at the moment xD But I'm a massive loser this weekend with no plans, so hopefully more stock will be up for sale. :)
Oh and one other thing, if you know me personally you'll know that I've got BAL-LOONY (I stole that joke from Cineworld =p) with balloons at the moment. - http://www.cineworld.co.uk/up?nickname=kawaiiducky - If you follow the link and answer the easy peasy question, you'll give me 10 balloons. I'm entering a competition to go to Disneyland Paris so I'd be very very VERY grateful if you help me! :)
Take care everyone :)

The following was taken from Nelli D's Folksy profile:
"I caught the creative bug as a child and as far as I'm aware there is no cure!
By day I am an art teacher, by night I am a designer!
No stone is left unturned in my quest for the next big Nelli D thing and I attend courses, buy books and learn as much as possible to make my wares better and more exciting ! so check back often to see some newbies....
All of my Nelli D gifts are lovingly made, with buckets of enthusiasm, time and sparkle. Then like a maniac I applique, quilt and embellish everything!"
This shop has the most beautiful handmade bags and clutch purses! I have recently developed an interest to Surface Pattern so as soon as I clicked on the link to the shop; I fell in love! I absolutely adore the floral patterned fabrics used to create these items and they are so very tasteful and elegant! Perfect for any girl who is going for an indie look!
Lots of lovely handmade jewellery too, made out of resin. I really admire the crystal clear resin hearts with something irresistible in the middle such as a gingerbread man! Other necklaces include funky skull and crossbones and pretty unicorns!
Make sure you definitely check out this shop out - lots of beautiful items made from what it seems a very busy and enthusiastic lady!

The following sentence was taken from Dollipops' Twitter profile.
"I handmake beautiful jewellery and hair accessories for prices I would be prepared to pay myself!"
It has everything; flowers, cute foods (such as donuts, cakes and lollipops) to fairies, ballerinas and angels! Lots of necklaces, bracelets, rings, brooches, hair slides and even head bands!
I truly believe that any girl can look at this shop and fall in love the beautiful items Dollipops has to offer!
