Do please share this blog and anything nice you have to say about The Navigatrix. Every sale makes a much appreciated difference. Most of my materials are bought from local charity shops and the more you buy from me, the more I buy from them.

Do pop by soon…remember, everything I make is a one of a kind, each item patiently awaiting its perfect owner 🙂

Wishing you pleasant, relaxed, seasonal preparations,


Treasury Challenge

Etsy is more than just a shopping destination, it is also a community. Likeminded artists, vintage collectors and enthusiasts of many different genres gather in teams for mutual promotion, advice, support, inspiration and fun! I myself am a member of several teams but there is one in particular that I’m fond of. Probably because, of the five woman leadership team, I am one!

Recently, one of the leaders came up with a brilliant idea: to make treasuries based on one team member’s shop, using items from 16 different Etsy shops. The chosen team member’s shop is picked at random each time and placed in the top left hand corner. Here’s my contribution:

To visit the actual Treasury where you can explore each of these items and shops in depth and Favourite ♡ them, visit Guardian of Dreams. From there, you can also explore other treasuries that I have curated. 

If you would like to visit our team, pop by In Here Life Is Beautiful and see what we’re currently talking about.

In other news, I’ve recently begun using Instagram and having fun, both with pictures related to The Navigatrix and others. My username there is ‘thenavigatrix’. Genuine followers are more than welcome; likewise, if you’re on there, show me your pics! I follow those that really interest me.

Remember, you can also look up ‘thenavigatrix’ on Facebook, Pinterest and Wanelo. This being the first Winter Holiday season that my shop has been around, I’m doing as much as I can to promote it and I sincerely appreciate any and all help in this regard!

Remember, FREE SHIPPING until 22nd November!

Be well,

If something has been lent out, there will be a note at the bottom of the item description.

Visit The Navigatrix on Facebook to catch up with my latest news and offers!

I’ve been enjoying my mornings and evenings by reading Gail Carriger’s The Parasol Protectorate series, five novels about a strong female lead character, Vampires, Werewolves and Tea, with a healthy dash of Steampunkery! Written as though Jane Austen and Joss Whedon had become entangled at an aetheric level, these books are wonderfully verbose and full of witty humour. They are now available as a boxed set. 

The Navigatrix looks forward to seeing you on Etsy, Facebook, Twitter (@Reikiblossom) or on Pinterest! I love comments and feedback, so talk to me, folks! All the best, Sally-Ann
