It's the little changes that count

Good morning.

2017 is fast approaching.  Is any one making resolutions?

Mine are to be more organised with my personal stash and to craft more.

Since the new year is approaching I want to make some little changes to how XCS works.

I'm going to try to run the five day sales every 3-4 weeks, with a VIP invitation only sale a few days before for all of my lovely VIP members.

At the moment I sell all month round, but I am going to change this. There will still be pictures in the group of stock available, but I am going to take the quantities off as I will only be selling via the sales from now on.  This is to save on disappointment for those who order between sales only to find out that what they want has sold out.

If you are interested in something that is out of stock, please let me know and I will do my best to get some more in or some thing very similar.

It may not be obvious, but I have sections.  I am going to discontinue some of the current ones (Acrylics, Keys and Stick pins), so watch out for some bargains as I clear those.

As you already know (if you have seen my live videos) the new year will be coming in with a bling (see what I did there lol)  Rhinestones and some tools/storage are being added. A bunch more surprises will be added as the year progresses and there will be the odd give away here and there.

I will be adding a page to the blog which I plan to fill with video tutorials on things you can do with XCS products, project tutorials and videos of things made by myself, Tina and the Guest Designers.

On top of all of that, I hope to finally get a website that I am happy with and to get that launched.  I have been working on one, but I am still not happy with what I have created.  You know what us crafters are like lol

As always, I am on the hunt for guest design team members, so if you would like a chance to play with some of the new items that are coming in, keep an eye out for notices going up explaining what is required.

I had better get a wriggle on and do some work.

Happy crafting every one

Bling up for grabs

I'm feeling the need to spread some joy 
(I'm feeling very happy right now).

So I am going to give away a bag of 500 rhinestones in assorted colours and sizes

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to post a picture of a recent or new make here that features either a metal embellishment or some sort of bling (pearls or rhinestones).

If you are using an item purchased from Xanderous Crafty Stash, please mention what you have used and you will get an extra chance to win the bling.

Please do not include links to business pages with your entry.  Discrete watermarks will be overlooked, but obvious ones will be deleted.

You have until December 31st to post your entry.
Good luck every one.  I can't wait to see what you all show off.
