Another CraftsforCharity Welcome

Hi all,

I have managed to get behind again with the 'Thank you's' for all those crafters who have recently added their websites, or Etsy/Folksy/Misi shops and blogs to the CraftsforCharity directory. So here is the first group of thanky you's to welcome the new crafters to the directory and there will be more to come later on in the week.
The first thank you goes to Carolee Crafts who creates handmade gifts and cards using fabrics, beads, ribbons and lace. Many of her creations can be further personalised with a name or message and beautiful products are added to her website weekly, her newest creations being fruit pocket aprons.

The second thank you goes to Ali's craft studio where Ali creates peelable stained glass decorations. These can be attached to any smooth or shiny surface such as door, windows or mirrors and are totally repositionable and reusable. New to her site are Ali's hand-painted keyrings which can also be customised to order.

The third thank you goes to MornieG Jewellery and her unique handmade jewellery that can be purchased from her MISI shop. All designed and handmade from her home in Wiltshire, she combines sterling silver jewellery with handmade lampwork glass, semi precious stones freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals.

The fourth thank you goes to Ciren's Call who makes jewellery in order to raise funds for the Many Tears animal rescue. Many Tears are the animal rescue that gave her Peaches, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Visit her Misi shop to admire both her gorgeous jewellery and her adorable dog!

The fifth thank you goes to Just K Jewellery who makes handmade resin jewellery and also beaded jewellery. Karen makes all her own resin pendants and beads. From bracelets and cufflinks to earrings, rings and hair accessories, all handmade from her home.

Also, many thanks to all those who are helping to promote the CraftsforCharity directory as it is making a huge difference in getting the word about.

The Craftsforcharity Blog

Hi all!

I have decided now to dedicate a separate blog to the craftsforcharity directory and therefore keep my own blog dedicated to my jewellery making and craft work.

This blog will keep you up to date with new listing (which I will always blog about), changes to the directory and future crafts and charity projects.

Crafts for charity Blog
My intention is to develop the directory into something more than a craft directory. I have already purchased other domain names with the intention of providing fellow crafters a means of selling their good and raising more money for charity. This is the long-term intention but first we need to keep promoting the directory so many thanks for all the hard work you have done so far in doing that.

If you have not yet registered with the crafts directory, please have a look and if you need any help, please ask!
