I've put some items on my website on sale, i have way to much stock. Even when i go to craft fairs i can't get it all on the table and have a big box under the table still full!
So i have reduced lots of things, handbag charms i have reduced to £1. Grab a bargain and help my clear some space lol www.lej-jewellery.co.uk
This necklace isn't in the sale as it is one of my newer makes, i also have the matching bracelet to go with it.
I have joined up for a swap on the misi forum, it a stash swap so we can send some stuff from our stash, worth £5 and the person then has to make something with it. I'm looking forwards to recieving mine, i wonder what it will be? i'll keep you updated anyway.

flutterby butterfly

I made these earrings a couple of days ago, i love butterfly things but to be honest i'm petrified of the real things and have often embarassed myself by running away screaming from them.
My husband thinks i'm mad as i also have a tattoo of a butterfly.
Where going to look for houses again today, hopefully i can persued OH to swing past the range on the way as i tried knitting again last night and i have got the hang of it but i think the needles are a bit to big and i'd like to get some smaller ones. I hope they sell them there, i know they do card making and cross stitch stuff so fingers crossed.

cherry quartz

I made this bracelet yesterday, it is the semi precious gemstone cherry quartz with tibetan silver spacers and toggle. I think out of all the gemstones this is my favourite. I also made the earrings to match. Both are available on my website.
My stomach is a bit sore this morning, i managed to run a mile yesterday in training for the race for life. I don't know why my stomach is sore and my legs are pertfectly fine, it's strange?
My husband woke me up when he came to bed last night to tell me that micheal jackson had died. I think it is sad, i was never really a fan but he was only 50 and it seemed like he was never truly happy.

another new bracelet

I made this bracelet today along with another and a hello kitty childrens necklace. It's quite chunky and i really like the colours.
It is available on my website.
I have opened up another shop on misi today selling my cards only. I was adding them to my jewellery shop but there were getting to be more cards than jewellery so i thought it would be the best option. I don't know how it's going to go yet but it's worth giving it a shot.
I was also interviewed for someone's else blog, pennydog makes fantastic resin jewellery, i really love her style. You can read the interview here.

purple lampwork bracelet

I made this bracelet a few days ago, i really like the lampwork bead which i have used as the focal point. I got 2 of them but wasn't sure what to do with them as being handmade they were slightly different sizes.

another custom

I had one of these vw beetle charm bracelets on my website and my other shops but it had red hearts on, it was bought by someone as a gift for her friend. The lady also asked if i could make her one but without red hearts. She decided that she would like white hearts and this is what i made for her. I really like it, i love making themed charm bracelets which are as individual as this one.

Next is my first piece of cross stitch that i have completed for a few years. It's not a custom order, after i had finished it i didn't want it to just sit in a box with all my other cross stitch so i made it into a door hanger with some felt and ribbon. I don't know what i'm going to do with it yet, any ideas welcome!

custom card

I was on one of my folksy shop forums last week when a lady put a request in for anyone who can make campervan things as it was her husbands birthday and he was buying a campervan. I offered to make her a car and this is what i made, i personalised it for her with her husbands name. I think it is really funky, i have a pack of retro papers i bought ages ago and i'm using them on lots on things lately.
Things are starting to get better on the shop front and i had my first sales on coriandr yesterday.
Things are great at home to, we haven't had any interest in the house yet but we never expected to. DS was full of cold at the weekend and now DD is so i'm constantly running round with a tissue!

little bit of sunshine

I'm enjoying myself at the moment i tend to be fliting from one craft to the next, today i have made 3 cards and i'll probably do some cross stitching later. I haven't got long to go before i finish the cover kit i was working on.
This is the card i made i got the little miss stickers today while i was out shopping. I got some mr men one's too and have also made a mr happy card. The third card was a thomas the tank engine one. I'm not sure what to do with them all yet. I have a craft fair in august and the lady said i could bring my cards aswell as jewellery but i'm thinking about giving them to my mum to take into work to see if she can sell them as i have far to many.

new necklace

I was quite creative yesterday. I made this necklace, a anklet and 2 bracelets. I bought the pendant a while ago but never knew what to do with it. It is mother of pearl and is etched with a flower design and is really pretty. I have threaded it onto a piece of pink suede and used a heart shaped toggle to finish.
