asking for trouble

Coming Soon…

snowflake ornaments

I know it’s early, but my snowflake ornaments were unexpectedly popular last Christmas and sold out multiple times so I’ve been trying to get more organised this year. I ordered a few samples in new materials for anyone who likes a bit of sparkle!

Glitter Snowflake Ornament

Glitter Ghost fans will recognise this glittery acrylic, which will be extra sparkly on your Christmas tree with all the lights.

Silver Shimmer Snowflake Ornament

And my favourite is this shimmery silver that catches the light really nicely. I also ordered a mirrored version, but it scratches too easily so they won’t be available. If you have any other requests, let me know as custom orders are possible in a huge range of colours and finishes.

Snowflake Ornaments

I’ll be making these available for pre-order in two sizes, along with the standard white, sometime next month. I will order extra for the Etsy Made Local market in December, but I can’t guarantee there will be any left over for my website after.

5 Year Diaries

I’ve also been busy working on the 2017-2021 5 Year Diary, which will also go up for pre-order next month so look out for more information soon. If you don’t want to miss either of these, make sure you’re signed up to my mailing list.
