Just finished this frilly scarf for a friend...

I'm taking orders if anyone wants one!

My apologies for the rotten photo - I need a new camera!  Can you tell?

Pink Hearts for Japan

Hello Everyone,

It's been a long time since I posted on my blog and even though I've been making many handmade things, they haven't quite made it up here...!

Jojoebi from "A bit of this, a bit of that" in Japan is opening an auction for our dear Brothers and Sisters in Japan.

I'm putting up this pink glass heart bracelet and pendant in order to raise funds for those in need in Japan.

I'd be really happy to send them to a new home knowing that the proceeds may go to helping others find a new home.


Go to (United Kingdom) or (United States) and make a donation.

Every $5 donation or 3 pound donation entitles you to one raffle ticket.

After you have made your donation, come back and leave a comment on this post, telling me how much you donated (ie how many tickets you have bought) and your receipt number.

Don't forget to leave your e-mail address in the comment too - you can write it as name 'at' yahoo 'dot' com if you are worried about spam.

If you make a mistake or need to change your comment, please go back and delete your first comment and rewrite it.

Open to anyone, anywhere in the world!

The raffle will close at mid-day Japan time 26th March and the winner will be drawn at random and contacted by email.

For help with the donation you can refer to this post

The raffle being held on this blog, and others around the blogosphere, is held in conjunction with A Bit of This and A Bit of That. We are in no way affiliated with global giving, that's just our chosen method of getting funds safely to the affected area.

Later this week Jo will be putting up a list of all the blogs involved in this appeal, each of which will be hosting their own raffle or auction, each requiring separate donations. So if you're not interested in fabric, there will be lots of other things to tempt you. Do please check out the others and enter as many as you can afford. Let's do what we can to help those in need. And if you blog, or Facebook, or Tweet, or have friends in real life, please do spread the word!

Thank you and blessings to all,

Crystal Cave Creations Premiere Edition!

I have been inspired to get this site up and running now by way of an auction on Today's Creative Blog that is currently being held for the Nielson Family. Stephanie Nielson is a very creative and active blogger via her own site, The NieNie Dialogues. As written on the Nie Recovery Website:

"On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. John's Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital. Christian and Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on ov er 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie's body was burned over 80%. For the past four years, Stephanie has welcomed us into her charming abode through the NieNie Dialogues. Far from being a product of creative editing, the Nielson's don't just shine through the selective lens of a blog. They are ingenuous examples of family devotion, eternal romance, and Christ centered faith. This site is dedicated to their welfare and recovery."

Kim from Today's Creative Blog has asked that everyone who can, get involved in order to help the Nielson family - and one suggestion was to have an auction of hand made/crafty things. Here are my initial submissions to the auction - and if anyone wants to put in a bid on any of the items, write to me at and I'll make sure to send you instructions as to how to bid on them via Today's Creative Blog. All donations will go to the Nielson Family. If you'd like to donate to the Nielson family in any other way, you're welcome to click here:
