Long time, no blog...

...again!! Just where does the time go?! I have no idea, all I know is that there isn't enough time to go around in our household!! So much to do ;-)

Well I have been mega busy this past week. I've done a couple of really good jewellery parties, the first time I've done any since Christmas I think!! And I have more booked so that's great ;-) The market in town wasn't so great last week but I'm hoping this week will be better.

I have had some commission work to do which I've just about finished now so that's all good.

I sold out of all my coasters...can you believe it?! I'm really chuffed but my poor kiln has been working it's little socks off (as has the kiln operator!). I have some really cute designs in the pipeline (well, I think they are anyway!) so I will post some pics when I have completed them.

I met a really nice lady called Christina who's told me all about a new monthly craft fair so I'm going to give that a try next month :o)

Before I go, I just have to share this picture of my boys having a little go on my lovely Dad's Tramper... they just love it when Grandad comes round on it because they get to have a ride up and down (and up and down, and up and down...) the drive! Just look at the joy in their faces - all 3 of them ;-)

Right, I think it's about time I hit the sack now, it was a late one last night...and the night before....and the night before.... and I'll be all crabby tomorrow if I don't get some sleep SOON!!!

Night night all,

Catch up...

Feel like I'm constantly playing catch up at the moment...have got out of the habit of blogging already!! I've had a little go at 'tweeting' on Twitter , you can't write as much so maybe I'd be better suited to that (sometimes!). Then again, I do like writing when I actually sit down and get going ;-)
Anyway, we went to a grey and wet art market on Saturday which was a bit of a dead loss to be honest...seemed to be plenty of people around but no-one stopping to look. There were only 7 art stalls so not sure whether that was something to do with it...not really a lot to entice people I suppose, is it?!!
So because of the weather and the way we consequently laid the stall out to keep the goodies and customers dry, I didn't get chance to make anything on Saturday. But I have made up for it!! Oh yes! Here are some that I actually took pictures of:
a silver plated Swarovski ring:

a Swarovski set in capri blue and crystal AB:

a really long green Czech glass necklace and clipon earrings:

I have also finally finished off the picture for my friend's newborn baby, not great sewing but then I haven't done any for about 20 years...oh, and please excuse the rubbishy photo, I was in a bit of a rush...catching up ;-)

(I think the pictures will all enlarge if you click on them) x
