Oh....a widget!

Today has been a rather lazy day. It was very hot, and much as I don't like it when it is too cold...I also don't like getting hot and sweaty (well, most of the time...;-) ). Anyway I did do one Cute 'N' Creepy related thing and that was to create a widget so you can take a peek at what I sell on my site (incase you haven't been there yet...what's keeping you eh?!)

Anyway, here it is...with designs from Cal, Chris Bell, Goth Alice and of course Cute 'N' Creepy.

Chickens 'N' Widgets

First thing I did today was to go out and check my chicken and her chicks. I had been hoping that her two remaining eggs would be hatched...but alas it seems they were not destined to do so. Still four out of six isn't bad for a first time Mum I reckon.

'Now listen to Mummy when she is talking to you!'

''re not my Mum!'

If you want to see more photos you can here

Moving away from chicken related news, I put a reviews widget on the front page of the shop website today. So if you have bought from me in the past then it would be great if you could take a few moments to leave a review of the shop (it would help put me higher up the ratings...which is always a good thing).

Some of you may know that Cute 'N' Creepy produces a fantasy fiction zine called Ethereal Tales. Well, today I finally managed to finish and upload the video advert for Issue One onto youtube.

If you feel inclined it would be great if you can rate and comment in it...;-)

Lastly I saw this article about creepy gothic dolls, and it made me think I really need to do more one-of-a-kind stuff...hmm *starts thinking about future projects*

Guest book, lighters and chicks

Nope, I am not giving you the recipe for an over sexed arsonist's B&B comment...just a round up of today's Cute 'N' Creepiness.

I have installed a guest book on my shop site, and a link on the blog if you have had a peek around the shop then please leave me a message to let me know what you think of it and my products.

The other main thing I did today on the C 'N' C front is to put some new lighters on the website...

These lighters have pewter decorations on the front of them they are on sale at £6.00 each and there is only one of each design available, so if you like the look of one don't hang about as once they're gone, they're gone.
You will find them in them here

There is also another new lighter of a similar design, but the decoration isn't pewter so it costs slightly less at £5.00

and you can find it here

The last thing I have to share with you tonight is something cute...very cute in my humble opinion. It is the news that our household has had some new arrivals, some chicks hatched out today. So far there are 4, but the hen is still sitting on two hopefully by morning there may be the patter of two more clawed baby feet.

Anyway, these are the best picture I could get today...only one chick showing (I think the rest were camera shy...;-) I will try and bring you some more cuties this space!

The First Post

Ok, bear with me as this is my first ever blog post.
Yes, this (only just) forty year old has decided to dip her toes into the blog world. I am not sure whether anyone will actual read my inane ramblings, but hey...we won't know until I try will we.

So, lets see what has been going on today. Well, to be honest I haven't been as productive as I would have liked to be. However one thing I did was to sign up to Google Adsense so I can add some paying adverts to this blog, it's sister blog Ethereal Tales, as well as for my online shop Cute 'N' Creepy and my zine website Having never used anything like this before I am sure it will be a learning curve, but hopefully it will bring in a few pennies to help oil the financial cogs. Time will tell I guess, but in these somewhat hard times in business we all have to look at different areas to add a little to our incomes.

I hope to have more to report in my next blog watch this space... :-)
