Colour Themes

A few months ago I started using Pinterest. At first I didn't really "get it" but once I did, boy I was addicted. Sometimes it's nice just to be able to save pictures that take your fancy, some are just for pleasure and some are just very useful.
To help with colour inspiration posts by design seeds are wonderful.
I've started pinning some of my favourite combinations .. if you want to follow my board you can find it here!
Happy pinning!

Tickled Pink

October is almost upon us and with that is
Breast Cancer Awareness
To help raise funds and awareness I have set up a Tickled Pink section in my Etsy shop.
Here you will find a range of pink beads, and on each listing I will advise how much from each sale will be donated to Breast Cancer Charity.
I decided to do this on multiple listings instead of making say one set and donating all the proceeds for a few reasons. Firstly it gives more people a chance to participate and do their bit. And with having more than one set I can keep listing and talking about it. It's not just about the money raised, but also about raising awareness. Let's get people talking!
From experience from previous years, I have decided to wait till the end of October and add up all the donations and then pay that amount in one lump sum. When I have that amount, I will post it on here and on my Facebook page along with a copy of the receipt!
There are some beads already listed, with more to come. So please keep a look out.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
