"Kisses For Xmas" Feature with Cranberry Dreams + Fabulous Giveaway



Hi everyone! If you have not yet met Londi your in for a treat, a small business owner, jeweler, designer, crafter, a lover of life, a mother first! and here she is wearing one of her beautiful felt hats, a zipper and felt necklace and a matching ring. Fabulous picture Londi!


She creates because she doesn’t know how not to! Here is a little more  info on Londi and I think you will all agree she is one very talented and amazing lady. I for one am constantly in awe of her stunning work and would like to share some of it with you.
Below is a set of her handmade gift tags and a pair of her beautiful french lace earrings which she will give to one lucky winner. Value $24


Londi originally from the U.S and presently living in France, by trade, she is a third generation jeweler, experienced in working with precious metal and stones, as well as designing, carving and finishing. For the past few years she has created works of art with felting, sewing, making jewelry and deco Christmas bulbs.



She is totally inspired by nature, lighting, flowers, children - anything from a rock to a grain of sand...a piece of gold to a piece of glitter! She loves working with color, texture and in all art mediums in every way, shape and form! As you can see from her beautiful items.



Bringing back the "Magic" of believing and old traditions past, Londi invites you to step into the "potpourri" of dreams...Cranberry Dreams "Kisses of Christmas!"

Here you will find sweet touches of cinnamon, punchy peppermint twist and delicate forms of nature, coming together to create these unique "Artisan" Christmas ornaments and home decor.

Rediscover memories of seasons past. Find the child in you (and your peppermint-patch too!), and don't ever stop believing!

And if that’s not enough then pop into her other shop and see her stunning pieces of work using zippers, felt, lace,vintage buttons and much more.

Londi has many hobbies – one of them being mushroom hunting! Her favorite mushroom to find is the Morel. She loves going high into the French Alps to find chanterelles and cep mushrooms! When it is mushroom season, you often won’t find her at home as she is always out looking for a new patch to discover! In the evenings, she prepares four-star meals with her finds! Lucky friends!!



Londi loves volunteering her time! She works with an organization call VSArt, an international nonprofit organization founded 35 years ago by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith to create a society where people with disabilities learn through, participate in and enjoy the arts. This is a hands-on effort where they supply the materials and help the children and adults with floral composition, jewelry making, painting and music! Out of everything she does, this is the most satisfying!



Where Londi finds enough hours in a day only she knows the answer to this, and she is generously offering one lucky winner not one but two prizes, a set off four beautiful gift tags and a pair of stunning earrings both hand made with her love deeply embedded.



Londi and I thought it would be a fitting  question for this giveaway to ask you to guess how many zippers are in the photo below.

Yes this woman is definitely one talented lady, I have seen this 1st hand, a delight to watch indeed. So much passion in everything she creates. All works of art too. Londi is quite fitting for such recognition and deserves so much praise for all the hardwork she does. Here's to Londi a wonderful artist. May her extra-ordinary flair and talent be shone for all to see! Great Blog Chrissie by the way! ;)
