Last Posting Dates for Christmas

Filed under: Uncategorized — Xothique @ 3:22 pm

Time is certainly flying past this year. If you were thinking of ordering a Xothique Designs mask as a Christmas gift, or for a special occasion over the festive season, the Royal Mail’s last posting guidelines are as follows:

Friday 4th December: Africa, Middle East.
Monday 7th December: Far East, Asia & Eastern Europe.
Tuesday 8th December: Carribean, Central and South America.
Thursday 10th December: Australia & New Zealand.
Monday 14th December: Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland
Tuesday 15th December: USA, Canada, Greece.
Wednessday 16th December: Austria, Iceland, Ireland, Portugal, Spain.
Thursday 17th December: France.
Friday 18th December: Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Switzerland

Monday 21st December: Mainland UK – First Class and Signed For.

Further details are available on the Royal Mail homepage.

Please bear in mind that if you would like a ‘Made to Order’ or a bespoke mask, you will also need to add 14 days to give me time to create the mask for you.

Many thanks to all of my customers, past and present, and wishing you all a joyous and enchanting Masquerade season.

Just a quick note to say that I’ll be at Dartmouth Faerie Fair & Masquerade Ball this weekend (26th – 28th November 2010), with my friend Ali Van Dam of Black Wyvern Books. Come along to meet us at The Flavel in Dartmouth, Devon if you can.

I found the following image on this website, while browsing through pictures of Venice Carnival.

Made in Venice. Not made in China.

I know exactly what they mean.

Welcome to my blog!

I hope to use this space to keep you up to date with my current projects and work in progress. In doing so, I hope to inspire the creative amongst you, and turn this into a forum for exploring new ideas. Over time this will hopefully become an interesting archive of my creative process. I would like to look back on this in a year or so’s time and follow my development as an artist.
I’m quite looking forward to the journey.
