Ok... quick update.... talk about leaving things late... craft fair on saturday and I'm still making up stock... what do you think about my cards? I'm not entirely sure it's a bit weird for me not using stamps in some of them.

These are not for sale anywhere yet but if anyone wants one contact me or they might be gone after the craft fair (same for my jewels!)

Thanks for reading. Hope everyone is not have the very foggy time we are!

Mishaps and Manicness!

Well.......... some of you may know that I'm maid of honour at my friend's wedding the first saturday in August. We had picked and paid for the dress in February and only last month did we find out the shop had lost the dress! Back between the April Bank Holidays.......

Was promised a replacement but it wasn't what the bride envisioned and nor did it fit! So two and half weeks before the wedding no dress...... and the shop refusing to give a refund. But..... I am now getting one made! Lots of fittings to squeeze in.

What else have I been up to........ Mmm.... do you like my invitations? Bout 40 day and 15 evening ones to create and send in and yes each stamp is hand coloured! For privacy reasons I have scrubbed out the pertinent details sorry!

And a sneaky peek at some resin........

In only six days time I shall be doing my first ever craft fair and am I ready...... No not really. Life, Work has got in the way! But see what I managed to create over this weekend 19 items! Sounds a lot doesn't it but no not really..... Not sure if any will make it into the folksy/etsy shops this week so if see something you like send me a message!

My own wedding is about 14 weeks away and sooooo much left to do. Am meeting the florist on Tuesday and the only idea I have is an orchid and lilly waterfall bouquet. Yes I am supposed to be doing this on a budget so any ideas appreciated.

Hope you all are having a lovely sunday.

The Early Bird....

... catches the worm as the old saying goes.

Today I'm going to highlight one of the promotional threads that is happening on Folksy. The "One Day Sale" where there are quite a few bargains reduced for just one day.

To find these bargains click here and to see a taste of today's watch the pictures....

Mine is this heart bracelet and earring set for only £5! (Usually £8). Have a peek at some of the other great items- as the blog provider is still not working properly click on the shop names at the end to go to their wonderful items.

Thanks for looking everyone!

Celtic Inspiration

Ok I am almost upset that one of the wedding rings I've fallen for can't be shaped around my engagement ring. Why did I have to pick a twisty shape!?

I quite liked this one but sadly the search must continue.

I love Celtic designs so decided to show you some of my favourites I've seen on my travels around Folksy... I am having some minor issues with blogpost at the moment so please click on the link underneath the picture and sorry I can only have one picture per row!

Clover Jewels Celtic Fall Beaded Locket

I saw these rosary beads today and aren't they gorgeous (slightly off theme but they deserve to be shown!)

And this feature wouldn't be complete without some dragons!

I hope you enjoyed this little post- if only for the quirks of blogpost it might have been more spectacular. Any ideas on celtic wedding bands please let me know.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out my etsy and folksy shops....


Well I didn't realise my last blogpost was back in March! Mmm what has happened in that time..............

Most importantly is I've moved in with my fiance and it's been lovely so far! So nice to have own space and more room for crafty stuff. Not that I've done a huge amount (apart from buying more stock but let's keep that quiet....).

Most of my free time later has been spent on wedding prep and baking! Which is my new obsession.... Somehow I've got it into my head to create my own wedding cake and cupcakes... simple right? No as my fussy fiance will only have chocolate cake! After a disaster with a new chocolate cake recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook I have decided to try not go too mad.

But............. I definitely reccomend the HB book for it's cupcakes, brownies and muffins. Mmm tomorrow I shall be attempting pineapple and coconut cupcakes...

Now... crafty stuff. Watch this space! There is lots to come..... Have you seen my etsy shop? It will hold different stuff to Folksy and then I am toying with the idea of having an album of items for sale exclusively on Facebook. I'm also attempting to be part of Folksy July Jewels.. will share some of the Jewels delights later in the week.

I am working on a special giveaway/comp which shall be before the end of July! Now hope I've not bored you all too much but there will be more regular updates....
