1000th Blog Visitor Giveaway - updated with winner

Ok so technically I must have passed the 1000th visitor mark as I put the counter on here ages after I started this Blog but let's not get bogged down with technicalities. As I write this, the count is 939 visitors from 55 countries. How cool is that?
To be in with a chance to win this Chakra necklace just add a comment to this post. I suspect we will hit the 1000 mark before the end of January but I have decided to wait until then to draw the winner so all comments received up to the end of January will be included - But you only go in the hat once. The necklace is made with Quartz Crystal beads with the focal comprised of Swarovski bicones in the colours of the chakras. The clasp is Sterling Silver and the whole thing is of course hand crafted with love.

I used a random number generator and the lucky poster is Number 5...
which is GRUMPY - Matt if you prefer some man beads let me know
Congratulations to Matt and thanks to everyone who participated

The Launch of Diadem's Light Website

I want to show you my friend Sue's website. She lives in Dublin and luckily we do get to meet up now and again. I won't tell you any more about her as you can read about her on her site. I developed this site for her from a free template.

Out with the old.....

Well I am having a mass clear out and have just listed loads of things (39 and rising) on Ebay and there is something there for loads of my readers.
I have listed loads of vintage Macrame Booklets, published in the 1970s, many of which include stunning jewellery projects as well as more traditional items. There is also a copy of The Bead Maker by Mary Maguire .
For my friends who are seeking answers to the mysteries of life there are oodles of books, many of which are now out of print. All of the Conversations with God are there as are books by James Van Praag and Edgar Cayce. Other topics cover Reiki,Spiritual healing and Crystal healing
They are listed as UK only but if you live elsewhere feel free to bid and I can adjust the postage prior to payment

More New Designs

As you can see I have been busy over the holidays and these are just 3 of the things I have made. The top one uses metallic seed beads with quartz crystal chips and Freshwater Pearls, the middle one (which is for me) uses glass seed beads, Lavakite rounds and Aquamarine chips. The bottom one uses glass seed beads, Freshwater Pearls and Amethyst chips - this is a commission for my friend Genny in America but (massive sigh) I have this awful feeling that I will have to redo it as I messed up the clasp and made it too tight!!! In one way it's a blessing as I plan to rethink how I fasten them off and the new method will be more secure and if in the future the clasp fails it will be a doddle to add a new one.
I have also been busy making a lower priced range which I am selling through Ebid. You can see my items here. If you wish to join Ebid use this link

New Year Wishes 2009

--Author Unknown

In the coming year, I wish you the clarity of vision to purposefully define your dreams and set your course to reach them.

I wish you the courage to change what must be changed and the wisdom to know what to leave alone.

I wish you the energy and passion to see it through to the end, and enough successes along the way that you never lose hope.

I wish you enough laughter to make the journey enjoyable, enough support and encouragement from family and friends that you're never lonely along the way, and enough love in your heart that you will always be able to give back to them and to the world.

I wish you a deep inner knowing that you have an important role to play in the grand scheme of life that no one else can fill, and that you may remember to serve others in their needs and encourage them in their dreams, even as you pursue your own needs and dreams.

I wish you enough humility to remain down to earth, even as you soar to ever new heights, and enough gratitude that you never forget your many blessings.

I wish you mountain of confidence so you never think too small, an ocean of possibilities so you always have dreams to make real, a sky full of opportunities so you never feel stuck or lost, and enough challenges to give you a deep sense of satisfaction with your accomplishments.

I wish for you a rainbow after every storm, comfort after every sorrow, inner peace in the midst of any chaos, and a clear conscience so you always sleep well and wake up restored and ready to continue the chase.

I wish you the genuine respect you deserve, the love you need, good health, clear thinking, inspiration, creativity, and beauty in your life.

These are all the things I wish for you, and I mean them as sincerely as I know how . . . but there is a catch—only you can make my wishes come true.

May all I wish for be the least you get.

Happy New Year!
