PCG Today! - 13th December 2013

As 2013 draws to a close (very quickly if you ask me!) how has it been for you?

Have you started a new business, revamped an existing one. Have you been super busy or has it been a really slow one...

Do you have any big plans for 2014?

♦ ♦ ♦

Jane Galley Finally beginning to feel things are falling into place. Love to have more of the same next year x
♦ ♦ ♦
Tracy Warner Started Glasspirations been very busy and want to grow in 2014 xox
♦ ♦ ♦
Sam May It's been an odd year for me, other things have distracted me, but 2014 better be ready because I have plans for it x
♦ ♦ ♦
Raychel McGuin Working full time so not had much time to paint, hope to do more in 2014!
♦ ♦ ♦
Linda Wild The year started off ok, but round about October when I expected sales to start picking up they suddenly dropped off. They are only 25% of last years sales for this time of year! very strange. Going to try and give my makes a definite style next year.
♦ ♦ ♦
Diana Coe I revamped "Beautiful, Beautiful Beads" to become Beadwork & Coe this year, but it didn't really give it the desired push I'll keep working on it in 2014 and hope to find the right recipe ...
♦ ♦ ♦
Janet Morgan Due to illness my plans for my business have been put on hold....until 2014 - Watch out Glitterwitch is coming!

PCG Today! - 9th December 2013


"Enormous thank you to Anna at the PCG for helping to negotiate and secure a massively important order from a huge Plc, great day when such a company chooses handcrafted over mass produced, thank you xx"

It was fabulous working with you Claire from Heartfelt Occasions and such a good feeling to go up against big London print houses and win the order.

If you are looking for invitations for a party, wedding or any other event then Claire will do a wonderful job for you and offers a truly wonderful service.

Elsewhere in the PCG!

I'm off on an early start over to North Wales this morning to visit the lovely Tracy from Glasspirations This talented crafter really has gone from strength to strength during 2013 and is creating some wonderful items. Just look at this gorgeous Butterfly Explosion Soap Dish! 

♦ ♦ ♦

Next I am whizzing off to Nottingham to visit Tom from Stonelaughter Flutes. Tom Crafts hand made native american style flutes. These really are gorgeous so you must pop over and take a look. One of Toms flutes would certainly make a very special Christmas gift this year. You can't beat the gift of music can you. As a flute player myself I rather fancy a go. who wants to buy me one?

 ♦ ♦ ♦

Just hopping over to Sheffield to visit Premium Guild member Jane from Loopy's Place. Jane is a fabulous lady who is seriously nifty with a pair of knitting needles! Perfect Christmas gifts for the winter coming up, who doesn't want a fabulously colourful pair of gloves like these in their stocking!

♦ ♦ ♦

Now we are off to visit David from WeirdWood. Over the years I've watched David do incredible things with pieces of wood, the grain he can capture is just breathtaking. One of my very favorites is this lovely mirror (that would look perfect in my hallway!).
♦ ♦ ♦

I'm now off to West Sussex to see another Guild Member that I feature rather a lot as I love her creations. Meet Vanessa from Vanessa Maile jewellery who is marvelously talented with wire and creates beautiful jewellery.

♦ ♦ ♦

Back to my home county of Devon to meet Flick from Perfect Patchwork I do love Flick's wall hangings. These would make ideal Christmas gifts. The colours are just gorgeous!
    ♦ ♦ ♦

We are going to stay fairly close to home in Devon next while we visit Jas from Lojango Design who creates fantastic flat pack hats! Very useful I'm sure you'll agree. Jas also has other hat collections for all occasions. Check out this funky PVC rain hat! Perfect for our current weather.

  ♦ ♦ ♦

I'm on my way back over to Wales to visit Guild Member Gill from Bowerbird Bears. Now Gill makes gorgeous bears but she also does a fine line in mice! Yes, mice! Just look at this little fella!
A Yule Mouse

♦ ♦ ♦

Over we go to West Yorkshire to visit Rita from My Bowtique who offers a fun, unusual option for Christmas Gifts. Shoe Clips! Rather colourful, fun ones at that.

   ♦ ♦ ♦

Running across over to Essex now to visit Carole from Waterlily Cards - Personalised Handmade Cards for all Occasions to look at her lovely creations. Cards and Keepsakes for any event you could need.
