I have already sent off my ATC swap for the UK Scrappers swap and forgot to photograph them. I did make an extra one for the WOYWW swap and here it is ready to be posted tomorrow.
I have used the Nuvo embossing paste on this one.
I made an extra three for WOYWW and they will be sent off tomorrow as well.
Modelled by my daughter Megan- my first 5 wrap bracelet in pastel colours.
I like the back as much as the front.
Also my first attempt at a three stand seed bead bracelet.
There are so many pretty colours to choose from.
I made my ear rings to wear at this years yr 11 prom.
I made a pair in blue too.
I have also had a go ( not that successfully ) of making wire wrapped rings. I need more practise!
I do love the bead in this one.
Well that's what I have been up to over the last week. I am no on half term break and I have four orders to make. Hopefully this awful head cold will go soon so I can get on with them.

Well I feel a bit of a fraud celebrating 7 yrs when I have only been linking up for just over a year! AND i have been MIA recently! Anyway, since I last linked up I have done very little papercrafting, a few cards and ATC's ;) ( of course). If you look really close you can see my ATC swap on the left hand side- its the bright yellow triangle .
It is a dark and dissmal day here.
I have been beading- I have made 1 necklace, two rings, two pairs of earings and about 20 bracelets since I last linked up - I am now taking orders at work - Yayy.
Here is last nights effort.
Work is manic , so I will hop tonight.
Have a lovely day xx

I finished off another Chakra style bracelet this morning and then have been looking at the Bead Festival on Face book hosted by Spoilt Rotten Beads.
I have almost finished this necklace -Tutorial HERE along with loads of others.
I just need a tassel and I am done.
This is the one on the FB page. I will up load mine when finished.
I also made some crystal earrings but I think the wire I used is a little too soft.

First up are some little bags I made to pop those bracelets in as gifts.
The SVG file is one I have shown you before and used with my Cut n Scan machine.
I also made the little flowers with air dry paper clay and flower moulds bought on amazon ( SO much cheaper than in the craft stores!) .
When dry, I painted the flowers with H2O's.
This one was given out today .
I have also made my UK Scrappers tags for May - The theme was "anything goes" - It took me a while to get started without instructions and then I rememberd my Gorgeous Prima doll stamps.
Stamped, paper pieced and then shaded with ink and crayons.
back soon hopefully.
