Haven't Blogged For Like...Forever! Ha!


Feels like a lifetime since i last posted on here. So today i decided to do something about it!

Firstly thought i would show you the face behind the name...hehe..and of course my two beautiful inspirations : ) xXx♥♥

This is me and my 8 month old daughter Honey Ava xXx♥ (Not the best pic though!)

And this is my little man Jack aged 2 in this picture at the time but he's 3 now! xXx♥

Any way on the business side of things, for a few weeks now i have been trying out various new packagings for my jewellery , and have decided on lovely little eco, ribbed, brown pillow boxes with pink organza ribbon tied around it, or lace? Haven't settled on one yet : ) Both look verrry pretty, if i do say so myself! And then for added cuteness some pretty little sparkles are added inside the package too (and little note aswell). hehe!

I really think the packaging plays a big part in encouraging customers to return to you. Not only have they got the excitement of recieving their gorgeous new jewellery buttt it's also beautifully wrapped, like a special little gift! I know that's the kind of thing that keeps me interested!

I will try and upload some piccies of the new packaging, when my camera stops playing up! :-/ Grrrr!!

This is a really random post i guess, but just missed the blog world! : )

Hopefully i will get back into the swing of things and start blogging regularly again. ♥

Have a lovely day...Miss Eclectic xXxXx

You will find a page with things that i love..everything from shoes to cakes! : )
A page filled with handy, beauty hints and tricks, and also lots of exciting news of my up-coming work, promotions and give-aways!

Freshly Baked...x

Last year, i was invited to a family members baby shower.
Having never been to one before, i was so excited and wanted to take a gift that would be really special and be a real treat for the reciever!
But i struggled to find something that wouldn't have already been thought of by someone else! Being hugely pregnant myself at the time (1 week away from due date)i thought about what kind of things i would love to recieve!
I put my creative, craftyness to use, and decided to have a go at making a nappy cake.

I had never made one before, but found it was really really fun and fairly easy to do! To be honest i was quite impressed with the finished 3 tiered cake cake too!

And here it is FRESHLY BAKED! hehe! Cram-packed with goodies for mummy and baby, including approx 36 newborn nappies, baby towel, muslin cloths, loads of baby tioletries, wash cloths, baby toys, brush & comb, weaning pots, teether, nappy pins, bibs and a feeding bottle secretly hidden in the centre of the cake!
All finished off with cellophane and pretty yellow ribbon around the tiers. Shiney curling ribbon on the outside and some cute jingley, silver bells (it was nearly christmas) All on a useful, reusable cake base.

I have to say it was the talk of the night *blushes* and the reciever was thrilled with it!! Nappy cakes are fantastic centre pieces and gifts for baby showers or just a lovely gift for new parents!

Since then i have made them for other baby showers and for freinds and family!
I have also created some other alternative baby shower/new baby gifts.

For baby showers they make great favours! It includes an Avent baby bottle, with a rolled up baby vest inside. Finished off again with cellophane and lots of pretty pink ribbon and a handy dummy also tied into the ribbon! Such a lovely gift but sooo useful at the same time!

All nappy cakes and favours can be made in any colour scheme, style, size & theme (subject to availability of some products)

If anyone would like any more information on nappy cakes or baby shower favours then please do contact me either by leaving a comment here or emailing me at i will be happy to discuss any custom nappy cakes/gifts ideas that you have!

Thanks for reading, i would love to hear any comments!...xx
