We are 8!! Happy Birthday NAJB!!

November 2017 marks our 8th birthday and therefore we thought we’d share the amazing story of how Not A Jewellery Box came to be all those years ago. Starting with initial problem, Owner Emma decided that if she couldn’t source it- she’d make it! An idea which started off as a stall at a craft fair on her own to becoming a full time business ran from her home .

Hocus Pocus, It’s Halloween!

Deathly Decorations, Creepy Costumes and Gory Goodies…. If you’re a bit like me and can’t resist a good opportunity to dress up then now is the time to channel your inner vampire and get your creep on! Halloween 2017 is upon us and we’re here to help you make the most of it with a few of our own little touches, plus a little inspiration from our fellow Small .

What your star sign says about you – Neat & tidy or bung it in a box?

When it comes to jewellery storage, we at NAJB like to think outside the box, literally. We pride ourselves on our quirky designs which finally makes jewellery storage a breeze… twisted chains and missing earrings?? No. Thank. You. Whether you’re a trend setter or one to jump on the band wagon, our designs are as wonderfully unique as our own personalities. So, just for some fun we thought we’d .

Back to School

In this house, we tend to start the new term full of resolutions for keeping tidy, having a good routine after school, making packed lunches the night before, getting homework done when it’s set, not at the last minute. It’s a bit like the first of January really. How about you? You know, and we know that making a tidy bedroom helps with getting homework and music practice done, .

Love UK Handmade

So, just in case I wasn’t busy enough here at NAJB HQ, I’ve kind of invented a new thing… it’s called Love UK Handmade, and it began as an Instagram page, for all things handmade in the UK, with a focus on pretty, fun, and lovely, of course! (https://www.instagram.com/loveukhandmade/) We have all kinds of items featured there, from giant knitting, to jewellery, to baby things, and plant pots, and .

Summer is here! We hope…

And if the weather is nice, you’re probably planning holidays, sandy beaches and ice-cream. And if it’s not nice, maybe just wishing for holidays, sandy beaches and ice-cream. Either way, we’re right there with you! Here are our favourite things that will make your summer easier. Let’s start with summer at home. You know what it’s like – you have three pairs of nice sunglasses, and a ratty pair .

Alternative Father’s Day Gift Ideas

What to give the man this fathers day who has everything? Well, something to store it all in, obviously! Dads often get a rough deal at this time of year – socks, chocolates, something for the garden or their hobby… how about being original and giving them something practical, and personalised, that will last all year? Plus, there’s a 20% off order code (Enter DAD20 at checkout), so you .

Ok, so its not jewellery storage… But Hey! They look Good!

Here at NAJB HQ, we’re very pleased with our new range of name plaques for doors.  You may recognise some of them from our Hair Bow Holders. We know that every child is different and had spotted that many businesses selling name labels have simple pink-or-blue variation. Is your child a cookie-cutter pink girl, or blue boy? Nope, I didn’t think so! Plus, there are so many beautiful and .

Ideas to store your jewellery

I’ve been really getting in the mood of Spring Cleaning recently. You may have seen the March blog about re-purposing jewellery. This one is Part 2 of my Spring Cleaning binge. Part of why I like having a really good tidy-out is putting everything back into the cupboard neatly afterwards. There’s something very satisfying about a perfectly organised space. Using boxes, or hanging pockets to keep things in line .

Upcycle Your Jewellery Box

Looking out of the window, it might actually be spring soon. Perhaps… maybe… So I’ve started thinking about Spring Cleaning. I like to have a tidy up every now and then, going through clothes, books, kitchen cupboards and the rest, clearing out the things that are out of date, not worn, not read, not needed. Some of it goes in the bin, obviously, but some things are still good .
