The Creative Juices Overflow...

Well i must say i am totally overwhelmed at the whole One World One Heart experience,
It's huge.. and i've been blog hopping on and off all afternoon and evening and i'm still only at about 200 lol
It's gonna take forever to get round everyone in time.
But it is truely amazing to see all the different arts out there, without events like this i'd ever come across such things as the wonderful clay art dolls and handmade glassware to name a couple.
I'd like to thank everyone who's entered so far and to anyone who's sent me mail, thank you too {sorry i've not had time to reply}
I have been totally inspired and lots of creating of my own is being done, I now have about 4 or so pieces finished ready to photograph but its finding the time, i'm too busy starting the next piece so how can you win, you gotta go with the flow sometimes, even if it takes you over the waterfall !!
I promise to blog at least one piece by the weekend, and as this is my altered blog it will be a fitting piece!

Flower Power Bling.

Here is the final piece of christmas bling i made up, and this has to be one of my favourite pieces to date.
A mix of glass and lampwork beads threaded and knotted onto cord and then entwined with ribbon. 
Although there isn't alot of blogging going on from me at the minute i have been busy creating this and that, Mainly playing and making junk jewellery, plus a couple of the pieces that are top secret for now so you'll have to keep an eye out in february to find out more on that!!!

Bling and Sparkle!

Finally managed to grab 5 minutes to take some snaps of those jewellery pieces i mentioned.. This set being one of them which was a present for my partners sister.
I used a mix of lampwork glass beads and swarovski crystals to give the earings some added bling.

Sorry it's a short post, still not properly back into the swing of things yet, the old mojo is a bit hit and miss, I've managed a couple of cute cards but not had the time to get inky yet, plus I'm trying to get myself organised as i'm hosting my very first swap on UK Stampers ..
Wanna know more... if your a member hop over and check out the General Swap section!!
All i can say is the experience will be 'Charming' lol
Thanks for stopping by x

Better late than never!

Hello my ickle blogland lovies, and a very belated

Sorry I've not been on till now but the dreaded FLU {quite possibly the swine variety} attacked me on new years eve and I've been suffering ever since.
Yesterday was the first time i started to feel normal again! {hay no smart arse comments about me never being normal thank you!!! you know who you are thinking it!!}
I've not been near the old craft room for a few weeks now, but I'm hoping that as I'm slowly starting to feel better i will get chance to share a few of the pieces i made as pressies in the run up to Christmas, mainly jewellery.
I hope everyone is staying safe and warm with all this bad weather were having.
Take care out there and pop back soon as i always love having you visit x
