Try looking back more...

...on days that were slower.
Stu and I finished watching the box set of Huckleberry Finn & Friends (remember that one, bloggy-types??) It was well good, especially the episodes with Tom Sawyer in them. We also finished th New Avengers last night and have started on Hart to Hart.
I'm afraid I've not made anything for the last couple of weeks - really need to gut this room and get back into it. Every time I'm in here at the moment I just look around at the chaos and my creativity seems to vanish.
Really loving my new job, although put in a fair few extra hours already.
Nothing much else to say though I'm afraid. Will be back soon though (hopefully with something to show next time!!)

Let me take you down...

... cos we're going to...

Decided to call this bracelet Strawberry Fields. Would have had it finished last week, I discovered when I went to finish it off that my last end crimp cover didn't have a hole in it, so I had to order more.

Can't do one of the little close up photos I've been using lately as for some reason Photoshop won't work tonight (I've even tried reinstalling) so have had to use Paintshop Pro instead and I don't like using it (plus I'm completely crap at it).

Thanks for looking.

First in ages

I'm ashamed to admit this is the first piece of jewellery I've made in about a year - have so much stock and just completely lost my beading mojo. The photo is crap on this one, but the earrings are amber, turquoise and amethyst colours - they are for a colleague who has a necklace in these colours.
Thanks for looking

Eggstremely Late

Yup, Easter was well over a week away and I'm just getting around to posting the cards I made!!

First one was for Stu:

I've used Making Memories Ethan and DCWV papers/card. Bunny cut using Quickutz Peekaboo Bunny, nameplate is Sizzix and font used is Quickutz Sunshine.


This one uses papers from my local craft shop and card is DCVW metallics. Nameplate again is Sizzix and Easter Egg is hand cut and embossed using the Cuttlebug Swirls folder.


Final one uses English Paper Company papers and a Quickutz chick. Tag is a Bosskuts one and Easter Egg is again hand cut and embossed using Cuttlebug dots folder.


Finally, it was Stu's Dad's 60th on Easter Sunday, so I made him this card. papers used are Making Memories Ethan (I actually forgot I had these papers and they are so good for guy cards), number is hand cut and inked and font is Quickutz Sunshine. Thanks for looking and toodles for now xoxo
