Today is for lovers!


My husband is not a fan of Valentine's day, he says he doesn't need a special day one day a year to show me how much he loves me, he does this everyday throughout the year. As much as I like to believe that, half of me thinks he is just bah humbug and a bit unromantic!!!!! I love everything about Valentine's day; hearts, roses, pinks and reds everywhere, good food, yummy chocolate and wine (not a fan of champers!) and people generally being nicer to each other!

So, if you are part of a couple, put aside any normal arguments and differences you may have and enjoy a lovely romantic day today.

If you are a happy singleton, go and treat yourself to a feel good movie, have a lovely box of luxurious chocs and crack open a nice bottle of bubbly or some yummy wine and celebrate not having to share them with anyone!!!

Don't forget, the Haiti auction ends tomorrow (Monday 15th Feb) at 8 p.m. GMT. If you haven't already, check it out here...there are still bargains to be had!

New charity auction - Haiti

Calla Lily Necklace is up for auction

as part of The Collective

As mentioned in a previous post, I am a member of 'The Collective', a group of designers who get together a couple of times a year to raise money for charity. Due to the crisis in Haiti, we are pulling forward the first auction of 2010 and I have donated a necklace made with my favourite beads by Becky Fairclough.

This auction has some beautiful and unique bespoke auction lots available for you to bid on, with gorgeous and generous donations from:

Laura Sparling
Crystal-Garden Lampwork Beads
AMI Designs
Monkey Gang
Clare Scott

Ray Skene
Beverley Hicklin
Flame and Glass
Crafted Gems
Chameleon Designs

and me, KEBO Jewellery,

Every penny raised by the charity will go to Haiti via Oxfam. As we have all seen the Crisis in Haiti is catastrophic and every penny that we raise here will make a huge difference to the lived of the Haitian people.

The auction lots have been divided in to jewellery, beads or cuddlies. The Auction starts
at 10:00 a.m. GMT on Monday 8th February and finished on Monday 15th February 8 p.m. GMT. Please do pop over to The Auction page and bid, this is a fabulous cause and the items are truly unique and really beautiful. If you have a moment please do pass this e-mail on to anyone who may be looking to buy some amazing bespoke jewellery, beads, unique cuddlies or anyone looking to buy you a present!! As The Collective is still very new, we are still building up an audience so you may grab yourself a bargain whilst helping a good cause at the same time.

If you have your own blog, please feel free to write about the auction, all publicity is appreicated for this good cause.

Have a lovely week.
