Giveaway time whoop whoop!

Hello lovelies :-)

I said it wouldn't be long till my next blog, I have kept my word :-)

Just the other day I reached a fabulous milestone of 900 amazing people that have hit that like button on my Facebook page Catherynne's Treats and I said when we got there I would be doing a giveaway :-)

So without further adoooo here is a picture of some goodies that I am going to make into something fabulous for the giveaway :-)

Photo: Right this little lot shall be magicked into something fabulous for the giveaway prize :-)
I shall be hosting the giveaway on my blog as to not break any rules here on fb :-)
Beware though I'm going to make you work for your prize :O
I have got in there some amazing gold, brown and soft buttery coloured lampwork beads. There are some fabulous jasper coloured beads some cream wooden beads and one of Bead Me Up Buttercup's uber cute polymer clay bird hiding in there too :-)

Now this is a giveaway but I am going to make you work for it though!
Mwahhh haaa haaa haaaaa!!

I have yet to make the giveaway piece, or pieces I haven't decided yet, I will have to see what comes to mind when I sit down with them all!

So anyway it will be something beautiful I promise.

I do hear you say 'what do I have to do to win this yet to be made jewellery'?????

Well my lovelies, I would like you to give me a reason why you would like to win some of my jewellery :-)
It can be a wild wacky response, it could be a super long sob story, it could be just coz I wanna win!
It could be a zany story about how your life would be enhanced by having some of my jewellery in your life but and yes I hear you groan. I want the reason to be inventive, like super inventive and the one that is the most fun to read is the winner :-)

So there you go to win the jewellery you have to give me the best and most amazing reason of why you want to win :-)
Oh and follow my blog too! That bit is dead easy all you have to do is hit the 'follow' button on the side of the blog :-)

So get to it, get your thinking hats on and comment at the bottom of the blog down at the bottom of the page :-)
Simple, now go, go, go..................................................

Some utterly amazing handcrafted things that I own yay!!!!

Hello lovelies :-)

I need to say a huge massive sorry, I have totally neglected you lately time has just been running away with itself. It is the summer holidays and eldest treats is here and we have been spending loads of time together doing cool stuff so that is a big reason why you are all so neglected!

We are now however nearing the end of the holidays which is utter pants as I love having eldest treats here as she rocks, but it means I can get back to some sort of routine with work, treats and just normal life as it is so topsy turvy at the mo!

Anyway yes it is the holidays so I haven't had as much time to make things as I have wanted to this blog shall all be about sharing all the amazing things that I have bought from businesses on good ol Facebook, Folksy and Etsy :-)

I like quite funky crazy things. Our house isn't a crazy museum of all things weird and wonderful (it is mainly filled with toys for my daughters and work) but I do have some uber cool areas where I keep my stuff :-)

So to no further adooooo here are some of my all time favs in no particular order as I love them all :-)

First up is my Miss Purple Grumpilicious Scrumplebottom from the uberly talented lady over at Odd Sox.

She is THE most grumpiest thing ever, ever, ever and never smiles and is only ever happy when other people are miserable! She does however utterly love burnt fish fingers for her tea!

Next up is a business called Always Alternative, I love seeing what they will come up with next and I was super lucky to win this amazing little dragon. He is soooo tiny and fits in the palm of your hand :-)

Next is a keyring I have on my handbag with my daughters names on and their birthstone (good job they are both December babies) This comes from a very talented lady whose link is Ems Jewellery.

Up next is a super happy page called Happy Bunny, I am very lucky to have met the lovely lady behind the bunnies and she actually lives not too far away from me too and has the most cutest three children :-)
I have this bunny and it is so well made is is fully CE tested so is safe for even the tiniest cute fingers :-)

Next is a super cute penguin from a page called Little Penguin. They are currently closed but do keep checking back with them as I am sure they will be open again soon :-)
This penguin literally fits in the palm of your hand eeek!!!

More cuteness this time with Hambals and Friends, these little chicks are actually smaller than a 1p coin!!!!!!!!!
 Hee heee cute!!!

Next up is a business that I am totally and utterly in love with :-)
It is a lady that is so clever and can actually do magic, like real magic non of this pretend stuff I tells ya!
She makes the most amazing things from rods of glass. I have a few of her little creations and I will be expanding my collection over time I promise. It is a business called Izzybeads. Feast your eyes on this lot (polymer clay creations by me, not Izzybeads).

The most cutest tiny glass lampwork animal creations, a bee, a ladybird, two pigs and a mouse, of which I just had to make some things for them as they were begging me for their own little things to be made :-)

Right next is a lady that makes me laugh ALL the time, she is always up to something crazy but makes the most amazing things including this bot girl that is all mine, mine all mine I tells ya!!!
The zombie rabbit I made because we had a lack of zombie rabbits in our house (well you never know when you are going to need protecting).


This next picture is actually what looks over me when I sleep, it is quite a rabble and is a mix of some of the things from above but it is also the only picture I have of the zombie rabbit from fionaT (note to self, must take more pictures). It also has Miss Purple and her side kick zombie babbit guarding her burnt fish finger made by the fabulous Crafted Whimzies, Bot Girl and my zombie rabbit complete with dangling eye (obviously).


Ooooo this is a needlefelted lollypop that came this week from a super clever lady Cherry Obsidia!
Yes tiny treats did lick it when she saw it the daft sausage she is!
WOW is all I have to say for this one!!!!!

Ok I just has a quick interlude to play Party, Party, Party with my girls but I am back now, you hardly even missed me didn't you tee hee hee :-)

Now these are totally mine and they are made by the queen of hair accessories Alternate Normality :-)
They are hair clips and I totally NEEEEED some more as they are sooooo cute when in my hair :-)

Eeeek another zombie bunnie (another one I hear you cry) yes another one although this one is different to the others I promise!
It is an amazingly hand drawn with the finest pens ever invented from Little Black Heart, you also get a sneaky other business in here as in the corner of the picture I have hung two teenie tiny bird beads from Beadie Eyed Bunny as they are a pair of cheeky birds that just felt like hanging around as you do :-)

I really need to put a larger piece of card behind the picture but to be honest I was like a little kid when it came and was too excited to find one when it came and put it straight into the frame and have not tinkered with it since it came!

This is another teenie tiny (can you see a slight pattern forming here??) mouse this time from Quernus Crafts. I bought this not long after I had started sewing as it seemed very apt at the time, plus the little mouse has purple thread and button and purple is my favourite colour :-)
How cute is she???

Now that is a lot of pictures, links and uber cool things for you to look at!
I do hope you will check some of these out and help them as they are all run by individuals doing what they love and are good at so go forth make new friends and buy all their things and make them happy but also fill your house with super cool items that are lovingly handcrafted, handmade and most of all totally individual and special :-)

I really hope you have enjoyed this blog, I love all my things and I hope I have introduced you to some fabulous new businesses :-)
Let me know what you think and also if you have bought anything from and super talented businesses you can recommend to me, I am always on the lookout for new things to brighten up our home :-)

Take care and I promise it won't be as long before I am back next time :-)
