Whats new in the shop?

I need more hours in the day, I always seem to be behind with what I should be doing, like keeping you informed on here, for example. I get sidetracked too easily. I haven't listed all that much on Etsy either, I have been in a crafting mood, as you will have seen if you follow my main blog. And there are a few projects I haven't blogged about yet. But a few things have made it in ( and out of ) the Etsy shop ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/LaCroixRosion )-

I just need a nice bright day, grrr, its horridly grey and dank out there again today, no good for taking photographs.
