One of the cool things on Flickr is getting crafty contacts via your photos. It's been no effort to find some really cool people for inspiration and collaboration.
I am particularly pleased to have joined UK Etsy Swap Madness, where I can send my surplus craft items to other members and gain points to spend on items other people offer. Nifty idea and I have had some brilliant stuff out of it.

Today I am listing these sheets of "delightful" decoupage >_< *shudders* I kept one sheet, for St.Patricks day next year!

Finished Tamina Kit

Less arty pic, more clear what it looks like. I just cant ignore the desire for clarity :)

Close up of Tamina bracelet.

Finally finished, the Tamina bracelet, from the kit from Spellbound beads.

Super keen now to try another kit, or may be this kit, with some of my own bead and design choices...

I am also trying to figure out a way to improve the fastening on this looks simple, and pretty, but its just not safe enough to risk by it's self. It's going to be hard to alter it on this finished bracelet, but I might be able to make improvements for the next time. :)

Russian Doll Handbag Charm Sold!

Pleased to have another sale on etsy, I was sure I wasnt the only person to like handbag charms of an eclectic nature, at last I have proof! :)

This is a pic of the charm, in its wrapping, ready to go!

Doing a bracelet kit I purchased at Spellbound beads in Lichfield. Really enjoying it...

It's actually alot further along than this now..I am attaching each small circle together..slowly! I might try the pattern again with some of my own choice of beads, tho it takes me quite a while, so I am not sure it would be profitable to sell them! :)

New butterfly cards...

Purcased this butterflys from a florist some time ago.. been waiting for ages to make them.. They squish nice and flat, the extra bulk, provided by the folded design, keeps the butterfly safe.

Built as per the cards below, no changes.

Linkage - Ripe Berry Set.

The "Ripe Berry" Paper/Scrapbook Kit I am loving right now is still being demo'd on the QVC website! It's by Colorbok, so I think might only be available through QVC in the UK, not sure tho.. I am hunting it out :)

It only cost me about £13 from the QVC shop in Shrewsbury. I have decided to look out for another one... I just want more of the 12x12 paper, its yummy.
