Second card

Made a couple of cards this evening, both using some ideas I'd saved from craft mags.

Anniversary cards

Deciding if I should use my phone cam to take my card shots. Should l put them onto Flickr too or take a second set with my proper camera? Decisions, decisions.

Finished jewellery making for a while, back to card making, lots of fresh orders and really I should start on the crimbo cards. These are a few of my recent bracelets.


Modifying some more pilgrim earrings for myself.

Fixing things

One of the best things about learning the skills for jewellery making, is being able to fix things! This was a snapped pilgrim bracelet that I was given to repair. Several pieces missing, but what do you think? Spot the new join?;)

Pick up a penguin

When I first got interested in beading I made lots of handbag charms, including some eclectic mixes of themes beads. (if that is possible?) Making some more for the next show, penguin, Russian doll and cats. Also made a few more earrings today.
I love my new phone!! It's making regular blogging really easy :)

Felt ornaments

Making ornaments in the evenings to sell at the fairs. I love how instant felt is. Also need some new ideas for Christmassy items to make.

Spent the other night crafting with Susan, she is far far better on a sewing machine than I am, but I might get there eventually. This project could possible use up some of my humungous fabric stash.. which is getting out of hand!
This is a pattern from Craft seller magazine, and this was our first attempt. It needs a few adjustments we think, but it came out pretty cool! :)
Been along time since I have caught up with my online craftingness...
