I lied!!

 About the paper craft...I DID have every intention of paper crafting ..but.... there were all these beads and cords on my desk.
SO another bracelet.

 I made this double wrap bracelet using the mini macrame board bought at Spoilt Rotten Beads. They also have some great tutorials and starter kits.

 It took me a few tries but I think I have now mastered the square stitch.

 I just started this one this afternoon.

I have no idea how it will turn out yet but will show you when its done.

Still beading

 I made this one for a friend, it wraps around twice.

 A Green one with lots of diffeent beads - also wraps around twice.

This was done on the loom and is made to look "patchwork".
I will be back with some paper crafting soon.

More Beading

 It's been an incredibly busy week this week and not in a good way. I had snatched a few mins. here and there on the loom. The above bracelet is for me ( I LOVE those colours) and just needs to be finished off- I am waiting for supplies.

The glue is drying on this one and then it will be taken off the loom.

Even more mess than normal - I did make a couple of cards at the weekend so there are bits left over from that. Started a new bracelet as well. after a manic first day back at work, I needed just half an hour to be on my own and this was just right.

And if you think this is a mess - you should see my other desk ! Trying to sort out ID cards and bus passes for my younger two- it would be easier to give blood!

To join in with the hop - Start HERE. I shall do my visiting after work.

Back to Card Making

A simple card really. I stamped onto a piece of card that I had already inked up with distress inks and splashed with water.I also used a stencil ( for the stripes ).
I used a clear embossing ink and white powder.

 I painted the image with twinkling H2O paints and I really like the way the background colour has come though.

The background paper is from Bo Bunny.

Three More

 I haven't stopped scrap booking or card making, I have still been making cards but they are part of a secret swap so I can't share just yet.
In the meantime, I can show you three more bracelets. this one uses seed beads that I have had forever and was just threaded randomly. I have edged it
with some brown beads and this is my first attempt at the leather closure. I am waiting on an order with silver beads to finish it off and also some clasps for the other two.

 I quite like the way this looks and it is the cheapest one to make.

 This one is made mostly with fire polished beads and frosted purple Miyuki beads with a splash of silver.
The same pattern made with frosted 4mm beads and the dark blue fire polished beads. Also a few silver seed beads added.

Back to work tomorrow and it is exam season , so not as much time to create :(

On making these now- I am still learning though and this was a little tight in the end . I also want to be able to finish it off a little differently and need to get some suede to have a go.

Still quite happy with the finished bracelet although reading the pattern took a lot longer than the other one AND the beads were a lot smaller too , so it took a few hours longer to make. I like the pastel colours.
