Advent Calendar – Day 5: Chic Glassware

Chic Glassware

I’m delighted to welcome Liz Chick and Chic Glassware to our Advent Calendar.

Liz and I have been best friends for almost 20 years – wow! That’s a long time! 🙂 Liz has many talents, and it was wonderful that she started taking her crafty interest further, and has created her own business from a hobby. It’s been wonderful supporting her, and the business growth over the past couple of years.

I love creating unique gifts for people to give away to loved ones, or for special occasions. I love the challenges some people give me, and whilst I don’t (can’t) share all the work I’ve done, I love everything I create. I often don’t want to hand them over to the client!

I hand paint, then seal the paint, onto glassware. If you have your own glasses you’d like me to make unique, I can do that too for you. Bespoke hand painted glasses are perfect for parties, christenings, weddings, retirements and of course Christmas.

I enjoy creating glasses for a whole Christmas party, and hearing the stories of who will be coming for the party my clients are wanting the glasses painted for. I work from your ideas to create the unique chic glassware for you. There are some favourite designs people love, and I personalise many glasses to make them even more special for those you’re buying for.

Children seem to love having their ‘special glass’, but we’ve also done unique glasses for dinner and party guests, so no-one can get their glass muddled up!

Chic glassware can create centerpieces for table decorations for weddings, anniversaries or parties, which you can then give to special guests at the end as a thank you. If you don’t feel creative, simply give us a theme, and we’ll take it from there to create unique glass gifts for you.

We post chic glassware around the world. Last orders for Christmas 2017 15th December.

Whilst you may well already be sorted for Christmas presents this year, the glasses chic glassware created for the Christmas dinner table two years ago made that year extra special for the extended family. Consider getting Liz to create something special and unique for a special friend or for a special gift.

Contact Liz at chic glassware directly and use your creativity to make others smile 🙂

Advent Calendar – Day 1: Created4U


I’ve known Jane Fox, from Created4U, for about 10 years, and have always been inspired, and often gobsmacked, by her creations. She is so talented, bringing ceramics to life, and creating stories and memories through creating pottery and painting pictures on all sorts of ceramics. She is a true artist, and loves sharing her knowledge and talents with others.

It’s a real pleasure to share Created4U as part of our advent calendar.

created4u christmas baubleI’m Jane Fox and I make gift shopping for personalised hand painted and handmade ceramic gifts easy for you. By creating unique bespoke one off gifts for you to give to whoever you wish to. I hand paint your personalised design on to ceramic pottery items in colour, along with a name and a personalised message from you if you would like one. This saves you the frustration of trawling around the shops unable to find something unique and saving you precious time in your busy life for you to spend in a happier way. What can be better than a personalised gift created for you?

I can recreate similar items for you seen in my online shop or something different. Just tell me your requirements for each item and I will Create it 4 U!

Most handmade and  hand painted pottery creations take about 2 weeks to create, depending on design time and number of firings required in my Kilns called Katy and Kelvin. At the time of ordering it will depend on how busy I am as to how soon I can get creating for you. Please note the hand painted kitchen and bathroom tiles can take longer depending on quantities required. Once finished the hand painted pottery dinner plates, teapots, mugs and tile creations will need posting to you or collecting from me in Preston Lancashire, UK.

Created4U can create or re-create pretty much anything for any occasion. We particularly love the paintings Jane has done on plates for special presents. Watch her video on the home page & you’ll see what I mean!

Please contact Created4U directly to discuss your ideas, requirements and place your order. It doesn’t have to be for Christmas! You may know someone who’s retiring, or getting married, or you want a unique christening present. You may be decorating and want some unique tiles for that special place. Whatever the occasion, there’s nothing better than giving a gift (to others as well as yourself), which has been personally created with your ideas and Jane’s creative talents.
