bit late i know

I'm not usually on the computer this late as my husband is usually fighting virtual wars on it. Anyway, he is out and my daughter is asleep, my son is watching spongebob on the tele so i thought i'd sneek on for 2 mins :).
I went to the black sheep warehouse in warrington today, it has just had a revamp and the new set out is sooo much better. I ended up with 9 balls of wall and 2 cross stitch kits, just got to find somewhere to put it now lol.

Pictured is a lava necklace i made, i know not alot of people like black jewellery but i love this. I had the earrings to match but they sold at my last craft fair, which was so long ago now i can't remember.
I have been making phone charms too, here are 2 i have done. A kitty one...

and a skull one for the boys.
So i'll sign off for the night as i'll be in the land of nod soon (i'm shattered).

my blog is leaving me frustrated

So i decided to try and blog last week as i hadn't blogged for a while only to be overrun with spam again. Even on my 'i hate spam' post, urgh i can't stand these people!
So i decided to just delete them all and blog anyway only to ramble on for ages and when i publish the post i got an error message and everything was lost. So in a fit of frustration i turned the computer off.
I'm not sure how long i am going to continue with my blog to be honest as i just don't have the time and it doesn't seem to be getting me any business.
I have however just opened a ebay shop, not sure if it was the right decision or not yet but we will see.
Pictured is a bracelet i made for a custom order before christmas, cute isn't it? i love the colours :)

I have sorted out one of my bead boxes and these are some beads i will probably never use. I listed them on ebay but they never sold, if you are interested then each lot is £1 plus £1.50 p&p. If you would like two or more lots then there is 1 p&p to pay. Just leave a comment and i'll get back to you :).

lot 1 - large red focal, acrylis yellow heart, 2 silvertone spirals, silver plated cabochon pendant, 3 hollow hearts, amethyst pendant and a chocolate fimo heart.

lot 2 - gone

lot 3 - 3 large glass pendants, 5 silvertone connectors and 4 glass beads with flowers on.

lot 4 - cabochons

thanks jo

snow again!

I woke this morning at 5am to see to my daughter, she talks in her sleep alot and can wake a few times a night crying, so as i'm ambling back to bed i walked passed the landing window. I took a step back and had to squint to see but i realised that it had started to snow. hmm i said and snuggled back into bed. My husband then saw fit to wake me at 6.45am to tell me it was snowing, yes well next time i notice at 5am i'm going to wake him and tell him. No i'm not a morning person lol, especially with not much sleep.

I thought these pieces may be suitable as they kind of remind me of the snow.

They are both clear glass beads with white lucite flowers. The bracelet has a georgous leave toggle.

all over

Is it just me or does anyone else feel like it is all over with for another year, everythings back to normal. We had to take our tree down 2 days before new years as it had turned brown and didn't look nice. My cards came down yesterday and my house looks more like a house now :0).

Time to concentrate on the year ahead and hopefully selling our house, it's been on the morket for over 18 months now and i would really love to move!

Pictured are a silver plated ring with a cream rose cab, pretty. A glasses chain with a seaside theme, i do love those shell beads!

And some silver plated earrings which feature cream glass pearls with tibetan silver fairys, fairy things is the theme of the month for my website so why not pop over if your a lover of fairies like me :)

would like to say thank you

I would like to say thank you to all those people who commented on my last post. It's nice to see that people are reading my blog and it isn't just spammers.
I would also like to say happy new year to everyone, may the year ahead be a happy one :0).

Here are some of my latest pieces, a bag charm which i think is rather sweet.

a ring which is silver plated with a lime flower.

and a child bracelet which features a duck bell charm.

bit sick of spam

It seems to be everywhere, and not the edible type which when in the mood can be quite nice! The forum of a craft site i am on has been taken over by spam, also misi which was once a great site is now over run with spam and people selling iphones!
long story short, i no longer use misi due to the owner not responding to any problems!
Now everytime i come on my blog i have spam messages from people selling diamond engagement rings argh!

I don't know weather to carry on blogging or give up?

Anyway enough of my moaning, here are some pictures of some hairclips i have made. I have set up a bits and bobs section on my website which features hair clips, headbands, glasses chains and phone charms. Check it out :0).
