New Feature!!!

Just appeared on a blog called bead barmy and I have to say it looks very impressive.

It features people who design items for weddings and showcases their websites and so I'm very excited to be included on it.

I've just had another commission to create a tiara and a piece of jewellery for a bride's special day.

Getting busier keeping the shops stocked with jewellery and so now all starting to come together.

Hope this carries on!!!

Been a busy bee today making three bracelets and a beaded flower.

Some are still experimental, but have to test out my thoughts and ideas.

Now going to spend the evening just relaxing as I start work again next friday and so will have no more friday nights in front of tv (working every friday night!)

Can't believe the Scott is already so old and it is time to go back to work, still have the rest of the week to enjoy life.

Been busy keeping Zoe and Scott entertained whilst trying to jot down ideas for tiaras, running through my head.

Spent the evening making bracelets.

Visited one of the shops to restock some of my jewellery and take in a shawl made for a customer's specifications.

Tomorrow I will be jotting down more ideas, which seem to coming thick and fast at the moment and tomorrow night I will be probably trying out some of those ideas....must keep going!!!

Another item has been put onto my online shop, but may have to put some projects aside this month as I may have another wedding on the way!

My favourite and most exciting day to design for and with a query for a bride and her seven bridesmaids I'll have to get a move on with things, but I love it!

Ladies day

Well, ladies day has come and gone. A bit disappointing on the numbers that attended, but I had a few enquiries on my wedding jewellery and jewellery fingers crossed.

I managed to complete another piece for the shop and have decided to try and put a new piece in the shop every day for the month of August....may be too much with me starting back at my day job next week, but we'll see how I go.

Here's the latest addition to the shop:

Went all the way to Lincoln to get more business cards printed, only to find that the machine wasn't working.
I'll have to now print lots of flyers to hand out on Saturday, which don't look as professional as the cards, but will have to do.
Will have to pop to Boston tomorrow to get some props for the stall to show off the jewellery to the max.....have to get those sales in.
Two more days to go. I'll have to make some extra jewellery to put in for the raffle for the charity auction, so must dash and get on.

Getting ready

Just had a big parcel of boxes delivered, which was just what I needed for my craft fair on Saturday.
I spent nearly every evening on holiday busily making more jewellery for the ladies day and had nothing to present them in.
Now got the boxes, I will be spending the rest of the evening packaging them and putting the prices on the items.
Just hope I have lots of sales for all this extra work.
I have also just been invited to another craft fair at a classic car and bike show so once I see how this one goes, perhaps this will be the way forward.............

Happy Hols

Just come back from a great holiday in Norfolk. The weather wasn't fantastic, but it was better than home where it poured down.

Today I'm featured on a blog: sweetcottonthreads written by the very talented Em who also has her own great website with lots of lovely things on sale.....check it out!

Now getting ready for a ladies day at the Sleaford Cricket ground and so trying to make lots of jewellery, ordering boxes to present them in etc.

Come and visit me at Saturday 7th August 2-8pm at the Sleaford Cricket Ground.
