Making, making, making... a right Royal week

Well, another weekend event over and done with, and despite me saying "this will be a 100% making day" I've found myself thinking of everything but the jewellery and browsing through Folksy instead (always a fave pasttime!)

But I realise since the shift from a facebook account to a business page all this blog has on it is the competition entry post, so here's a 'proper' one! And you guessed it, it's a Right Royal blog entry :)

It's wedding fever! Everywhere you go in the run up to the Royal Wedding there's a red white and blue flag... we can't get enough of it! From postcards, to sandwich shop signs, right through to good old bunting and keychains, we love it.... What a better excuse for a good ol' knees up and crafty shopping.

For anybody who wants to celebrate in true Royal style this Friday, here's a pick of some of my Folksy favourites to get you in the mood :)

Click on the pictures to be taken to the seller's Folksy page :)

So many beautiful things to look at.... really must get on with the making! Have a lovely day celebrating, and good luck to any fellow crafters who are taking part in events over the weekend.

Off for a [royal] cup of tea!

Nanny May goes official- Competition entries!

Well as a lot of you probably know, Facebook will gladly rip the hands off anyone running a competition on their site- it's against the rules and I don't trust my luck not to get banned or such!

This blog entry is for all competition entrants to post that they've 'liked' my new Nanny May Facebook page and I will use random.org to enter names and generate a winner for one of three prizes of a one-off piece of jewellery!

So that's it really, just pop over to Facebook, like my page and let me know once it's done!

There will be three winners, and the prizes are:

1st name drawn.... necklace
2nd name drawn...brooch
3rd name drawn...ring

The competition closes at 12pm on 10th May 2011 where names will be drawn and winners notified via email.

Much love and happy crafting!
