Had a load of these vintage plastic flowers arrive last week, as you can see i'm quite addicted to them, i thought i'd try them on some hair clip findings and as an adjustable ring, think they turned out quite well, the hair clips have been mounted onto thick paper/card that has a print of one of my drawings onto it.

Night out

Went to see Eddie Izzard at the NIA last night, it was our first night out for ages with out Ethan, had a really good night ,very funny (though the women sitting next to me had fallen asleep during the show, had to keep moving out of the way to avoid her head as it kept lolling to my side lol) was a nightmare to get out of the car park though, it was nearly midnight when we got home and the show finished at half ten, oh well it was worth it!!!

Just phoned my Auntie thats had Ethan for the night, says hes fine and will bring him home later, wow haven't had this much time to myself for a long time, not sure what to do with myself, should be doing housework i suppose but i don't want to i just want to do nothing as i don't ever get this anymore :) naughty i know xxx

Wow has it really been that long?!?!

Hi i'm back, i hadn't realised how long it had been since my last post (oops) i was no good at keeping a diary so i'm not surprised i'm crap at keeping this up to date as well, oh well not much to report, just been busy with making a few custom orders i've had,opening an account on stumble oh and trying to do my own website on jimdo (going very slowly)

Heres a pic of one of my custom orders from Hatastic, she wanted the beads the colour of Cadburys dairy milk wrapper purple, i was really chuffed with how close the beads (fresh water pearls) i found were to the colour she wanted :)
Visit Hatastics shop here.
We went to the Town and country show today, i actually really enjoyed myself, i remember going about 15 yrs ago (That makes me feel old!!) and feeling really bored so was quite surprised that i'd enjoyed it today. it probably had something to do with taking Ethan, he loved looking at the animals especially the parrots, he couldnt stop smiling bless him, ohh and was going nuts over the man in the bunny costume, he just kept pointing and grunting, soo funny.

Birthday boy

Well i've finally (i hope) managed to get the chocolate birthday cake up off the floor, i keep finding it everywhere!! even up his nose :),

It was Ethans first birthday on Thursday, cant believe he is 1 already, where has the time gone, its quite scarey

His Grandma bought him a chocolate birthday cake, i was giving him little pieces at first but he managed to get my big :) piece and started to eat it, he loved it, made such a mess though.

He was such a good boy, spoilt rotten though, i need to move to a bigger house just to put his toys in. Hes having a little birthday party today, i can't wait, more cake!! xx

How did i end up following myself ????????

Sarcastic boyfriends

Soo i just got an email off my partner "have you booked an appointment with the dentist or has your tooth stopped hurting again"

Hmmmm i think someones being a bit sarcastic, don't you??? x

i hate it when hes right though :)


Since i only came across the world of blogging from making my jewellery i thought it would only be right to show you a few of my faves :)

For this charm bracelet i have used lots of different beads in all shapeS and sizes, theres glass,crackle,felt,plastic,Cloisonne,lampwork, old and new,i have hand wired them to a copper tone curb chain and finished it with a copper tone toggle clasp, i think this makes a great bracelet, very big bold and chunky, will definately get noticed.

This gorgeous necklace has been made with lots of colourful vintage flowers in all shapes and sizes i have hand wired them using a silver coloured wire i have also used some lemon,orange and pink coloured felt beads that complement the flowers beautifully, to finish the necklace i have added some purple plastic beads with a silver plated heart shaped toggle clasp at the end.

This gorgeous necklace has been made with lovely lemon,orange and pink coloured felt beads that i have threaded onto an orange satin ribon with emerald green wooden beads,i have hand sewn lots of colourful vintage flowers in all shapes and sizes and pretty beads to the felt beads which i think compliment them beautifully,You can tie the necklace into a bow to fit.Beautifully bold and bright for summer.
I love making my jewellery when i get the time (which isnt very often now)

First day of blogging

Ok soo far soo good, today i've got terrible toothache, never had it before but i went to the dentist a couple of weeks ago, first time in 10yrs (did i mention i'm absolutely terriffied of dentists!!!) and he gave me a filling :( i suppose i'm lucky thats all i needed having not been for soo long, anyway i did the usual screaming and crying thing while he did his work on my mouth it was awful!!! so its been playing up ever since, its really sensitive and on Saturday i went to a wedding it was brilliant, the bride looked beautiful, the groom looked great in his kilt, it was such a good day!!We got to our hotel room at 1.30am and as soon as my head hit the pillow the toothache started, oh my god it hurt soo much, i'd had no pain at all during the day why start now?!?, it kept me a wake all night, what made it worse was the fact that it was my partner and my first night away together since having our little boy in July, we'd been looking forward to it for soo long, got the babysitter, booked a great room in a nice hotel, and this ruined it, i was just a crying mess all night and the next day, on the way home my partner kept mentioning the dentist and that i'd have to have my tooth taken out, i swear i had a major panick attack,well my hands and arms started to go numb,i was hyperventilating i thought i was going to pass out, i made him pull over on a busy road and i flew out of the car and just sat on the grass by the side of the road, he must have thought i'd gone mad, took him ages to get me back in that car, bless him. haha

So back to today, well i've still got toothache and i keep putting off going to the dentist i'm hoping its just going to fall out by itself :) i doubt it though, really don't know what to do, my partner said to me this morning as he left for work "don't forgot about your tooth" like i'm going to forget about it, IT HURTS!!!
