Happy Christmas!

It's Christmas Eve-Eve! I'm so excited for Christmas!! :)

Today I've been busy giving RubyWren.com a bit of a face lift. I wanted to give it a bit more of a vintage botique feel, so it's got a new purple floral theme, which I'm really happy with! I'm working on adding my own shop onto the site so that UK buyers have a bit more user-friendly view of my products. Previously, I've been registered on Etsy.com, but this being American, means I can only set my products up online in US dollars, and it means if you wish to purchase, you have to register via Etsy first. So hopefully, I can enjoy the challenge of getting my own shop online! I do love to learn new things for my web design!

And, I've just bought some lovely new vintage supplies! Lots of charms and pieces that add that little extra special detail! I love working with vintage materials because I think it makes my end designs a little more unique! Vintage items are hard to find but fun to think 'this is older than me!' It's lived a life before, and is given a new purpose when reused! It's a lot of fun! Check back after Christmas to see what's new on Ruby Wren.com!

Have a Happy Christmas!!

This is my first blog on here, just redesigning my Ruby Wren website and thought it would be fun to include a new blog.

For anyone who doesn't know what the site is about, it's generally a mix of my creative outlets - photography, jewellery making, webdesign, and anything else I fancy getting involved in ;)

I'm currently really enjoying my time on Etsy.com - it's like an 'ebay' for artists and crafters. I'm having so much fun with my jewellery over there. There's so much to see (and buy!!). It's a really brilliant place and there are tonnes of talented people there! My shop is online there at:

I'm really looking forward to my Birthday at the end of the month. I've had my DSLR for about a year now but am buying a new high-end compact and am planning to take it for a spin in Liverpool :) I'm travelling up there for my Birthday and can't wait. My DSLR is so heavy so I'm looking forward to taking shots that I'd otherwise miss when I haven't got the SLR on me :)

Here's some of my recent photos. I've been having a good look through my files and found some I'd forgetten I'd taken.
