Welcome to A New Year!  Let Us Inspire You!

Hello to all our Ruby Rock-It fans.  How is it that we are nearly at the end of our first month of 2019?    Christmas is nothing but a distant memory, Australia Day weekend has been & gone and our beloved little people have all returned to school. 

My first born started school for the first time yesterday.  It was a very proud moment and I'll be honest, a few tears were shed as I'm sure many parents will relate.  I'm still trying to figure out where those last 5 years went?   One minute I was cradling my wee boy in my arms and then before I knew it he was dressed in an oversized uniform and heading off for his first day of school.  I had waited for this day since he was born but now I realise I was wishing his life away.  There's nothing wrong with looking to the future but I probably could've lived in the moment a little more.  Time certainly waits for no one. 

After my recent epiphany, I'm now making a conscious effort to live in the moment and be thankful for every day that I'm alive and well.  It's a timely reminder to appreciate the little things in life and not to sweat the small stuff.  I'll also not be in such a hurry for my kids to grow up because as I'm learning, they're only small for a very short time.

Infact life is too short for regrets, so if you haven't made more time for your crafting, this is the year to do it.  They say it's like meditating....soothes the mind and is an effective stress reliever.  Not to mention that it is so important to set aside time for yourself to do the things that make you happy.  So go on, get crafting!


January saw the launch of   our brand new paper collections which our design team featured in all their projects this month.  These included the Cosmos, Australiana, Seaside and the Steamworks ranges.   We also celebrated our new and improved Ruby Rock-it website with a 3 day 30% off Sale.  We're super excited to be offering our beautiful products online directly to our Australian customers.  

If you missed all the fun throughout January, here's a recap to inspire you to get crafting with Ruby Rock-It!


Petite Black Choker and Earrings Set by Dominique

Hi there. It's Dominique here, with a New Year's Eve themed choker and earrings set. It's sparkly, but  simple, for an effortless, yet effective look. I think this choker is also quite minimalist, which is a style that I love, and I think the lovely beads from Just Bead It work perfectly with the design, whilst remaining understated and elegant. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and hope that 2019 can be your best year yet.

Tribal Themed Necklace and Earrings Set by Dominique

Hello! Today, I am going to share with you my most recent jewellery design - a modern tribal-themed necklace with matching earrings. At first, I was intimidated by the spike beads, and wasn't quite sure how I could use them in a project since they are not beads that I would typically gravitate towards. However, it's always good to go outside your comfort zone, and so I decided to give them a go. I'm pleased to say that I love the end result, and am very excited to share the finished piece with you today on the blog.

With my pregnancy these will really come in handy, stash one in my handbag, one in the office, one in every other room in the house.
