Handmade mOnday/Auction/Troops

HANDMADE MONDAY.

Its that time of week again!!! where does the time go.
Well what have I been upto this week.. Ive been so busy working on the auction, I havent had much time to make many new designs.

These earrings I made to represent my company name. Angels and Diamonds = Angels wings + Shiney faceted crystals,  not quite diamonds.. but who knows.. one day :)

And the ring i used with larger crystals and tiny metalic beads on memory wire.

Why dont you pop over to Wendy's @ http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog  and see what everyone else has been working on :)

THE AUCTION

As I mentioned above, this has taken up alot of my evenings and my weekend. Im getting nervous as its less than a week away and I havent got loads of items up yet, and I have no idea what the turn out will be :( fingers are crossed and Im hoping I can do a bit more promoting before it kicks off.

For those who dont know the details, please see my previous blog http://angels-and-diamonds.blogspot.com/2011/02/cancer-research-uk-auction.html

and visit my facebook page, where it will all be happening. www.facebook.com/angelsanddiamonds


Ok.. so i mentioned that there will be a feature item.. where 100% will go to Cancer Research.. I thought long and hard about it and decided to go with my twist necklace and bracelet, I also made some earrings to go with the set


Some of the other items you will see in the auction are:

SEND IN THE TROOPS

Also, 2-3 weeks ago a new Business Page joined facebook.... SEND IN THE TROOPS. This group has made 1000 fans per week and I have to say are great fun. they do marches on Wednesday and Sunday evenings, (you can nominate your business in their notes) on the days other businesses (such as ourselves) wait for the lucky 20 selected businesses to be listed and then we march on down to their pages, click like and leave a link back to our page.
This has been so successful. If Facebook is a big part of your business then you really should join in the fun.
I have come across some amazing pages through Send in the Troops. :)

So that is all I have for an update really... Although I will have an update mid week :) oh and maybe a new Company Logo to share with you all.. im very excited about that :D

Thank you for reading.

Love Lucie
