How Lucky Am I!

VERY! Look what my lovely friend Andrea sent me,apparently when sorting her stash she discovered that she had 2 and so she posted the spare one to me!

Andrea and I were, at college together the 80's, yeah I know, a long time ago now.We lost touch for a long time, after she moved to London.She then contacted me years later and we try to meet up, usually only about once a year, but when we do we have LOADS to chat about,You see Andrea was the only friend that crafted and decorated and all that stuff so we'd chat for hours about all our ideas.Obviously now I've found Blogland, I am in heaven as there are loads of like minded people here!Anyway if you happen to be reading this Andrea THANK YOU,I love ya loads! Here are some piccies from this gorgeous book, I can't wait to get started!

In other news I have put some Vintage items on my website.This cute little chap and his little friend Aren't they sweet!
I'm off to make some stuff now, have a great day!

Still doin Brooches

I'm still busy making lots of brooches for my wesite and for Eve(the shop in Witney)I've been working on these made from a mohair mix and finished with tiny buttons and pearl beads.I've made some lovely Jaeger Alpaca ones too but I'll be saving these until the Autumn as they're brown.I shouldn't really be writing this post as I'm still in my pj's and I've got an order for 12 Easter cards.

See you soon x

Hey,I'm back!

I honestly didn't intend to be away from my blog for this long.I've been on holiday and had a fantastic time.We've never been away in February before but I can highly recommend it.We were all very excited to be going to Barbados and meeting some friends who were already there.We all had a wonderful time,ate too much drank lots of lovely cocktails and raced canoes with our families .My son perfecting his surfing technique!
This is where we stayed, Sandy lane hotel..HA HA not really, we stayed at Sandy Bay and our beach was much better than theirs!We did visit on a catamaran.
Anyway don't want to bore you so onto other news, I will be updating my website in the next week with lots of new makes.I'm also going to introduce a Vintage section as my friend Karen has got lots of lovely things to show you, brooches, beaded bags, mohair bears to name a few.This section will probably open in the next 3 weeks so do check out the website if you're interested.

I have been busy making these brooches for a local 'French style Boutique' which has kept me very busy
I'll be back tomorrow to show you the rest as I've got an event tonight and I haven't packed my goodies yet! TTFN!
