Hi everyone and happy Monday! I had so much fun with the cupcake giveaway this weekend. Stay tuned next month for a Halloween giveaway! OooOOoOOh! And now on to business. Beautiful button business, that is ;) The jewellery sets here are all made by the one, the only, the wonderfully talented, super sweet and fabulous Collette of Noodlefish. I love this chick. BIG time! First up is this awesomely funky black and polka dot set. I had an idea. I emailed Collette with the idea. Collette made jewellery. And all was fantastically right with the world 'cause DAMN! See what she does? She drives me to curse! My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw what she came up with here. I LOOOOVES it! I originally ordered just the necklace.. but can you blame me for asking for a matching bracelet? C'mon, you know you wouldn't have been able to resist either ;)
Next up is no surprise.. it's cuppycake madness! Again, I say 'cupcakes' and she creates this yummilicious treat! And have I mentioned Collette's an absolute DREAM to work with? I tell her what I have in mind, she sources the buttons, creates the layout and sends me pics. I am free to alter the design if I so choose. And, while we're talking about that, a note on the subject: anytime I want to tweak something, she does it happily.. and then I have her change it right back and she doesn't hate me forever and ever. Bonus! Anyway, so after I've chosen the final layout, she then creates the jewellery and I'm an extremely happy bunny.
Did I mention I collect her sets in holiday themes too?! For St. Patrick's Day she made me a FAB green set (which I lovelovelove) and this Halloween set is just as awesome! Again, Collette specifically sourced these jack-o-lantern buttons just for me (aww, she's the sweetest) and created this fun set. The pictures don't show exactly how awesome it is but, trust me, it is The Awesomest! While I was at it I also ordered a set for Kaia for a Halloween gift (and a cupcake set for a Christmas gift.. Kaia loves Collette's jewellery too!)
Everything arrives well-packaged and in the cutest wrapping. All of the jewellery is very comfortable to wear and I get TONS of compliments on it!
So just to summarise: Noodlefish = awesome. Collette = wonderfully talented, patient girl.
What are you waiting for? Go check her out! I'm sure you're gonna love her stuff just as much as I do!
Have a great week everyone :)
