I'm sorry, I have been a terrible blogger just lately. My only excuse is that I have been buying so many new beads and trying to come up with brilliantly amazing designs for them, that everything else has gone by the wayside - honestly, you should see the dust in my living room!!!!! (my excuse - what's the point in dusting? It just settles somewhere else!!!)
And now, I have to tell you that I won't be blogging for another week, because I am going on holiday again!!!! Yes, I am off to sunny Chapel Point, near Chapel St Leonards. Staying in a lovely little chalet about 200 yards from the beach. I have informed Rose that she needs to pack her collar, and she has bounced around suitably!!!
When I am back, I promise I will have photos of some of my new creations, but in the meantime, here are some of the gorgeous beads I have bought this week......
I am really pleased to announce the winner of my first ever blog giveaway is Di of Adien Crafts. Congrats Di, and thank you to everyone else who took part. Just goes to show how many Goddesses there are out there!!!!
Okay, as I have now got over 50 followers, I am doing my first giveaway.
I am a bit of a history and mythology geek so thought that I could tie the two together. So to win, all you have to do is leave a comment below to say what Goddess you are and why. It doesn’t matter what culture your Goddess is from, it can be Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Celtic, etc. etc.
And the prize.......
This necklace, taken from my Folksy shop. It is made with purple cats eye beads, and some lovely purple cloisonné beads, great for the summer months.
I will run the giveaway until Friday 16th April, then will announce the winner.
Don’t forget to leave details of how you can be contacted, if not linked to a Folksy shop.
Well, got back from holiday on Saturday, and started back to work today. No enthusiasm whatsoever, so..... Decided to upload some of my holiday pics. We didn't really go very far. The weather was not brilliant, to be honest we spent most of the week sitting in the conservatory, drinking tea, eating, and reading the 14 paperbacks I took with me!!!!! Also took some great pics of all the birds in the garden. There were quite a few that we don't tend to see where I live, like...
a Blue Tit, and there were a couple of gorgeous squirrels, that came for their nuts every day.
And of course, Rose was with us as well. Here she is in her special holiday bed!!!!All in all it was a lovely, relaxing week. But now I am ready for the next one!!!
I love jewellery, so much so that I decided to make it for myself. After making jewellery as gifts for friends and family, I was persuaded to sell online and set up my Folksy shop, www.folksy.com/shops/jewelbox. I work fulltime in the office of a construction company - you couldn't get much further from jewellery making!!!
