friday 28th march 2008. WOW!

what a fantabulous day!!!!! its raining buckets, my gardens a swamp (thanks dog) and my house is only habitable for street urchins who dont mind taking the risk. BUT........................... i've just received my parcel of various coils of silver wire (that took some organising!) AND i've just discovered my first comments to my ramblings!!!!! (yes, its true, the little things in life really do make me smile :) allbeit like the cheshireist of cheshire cats!). spent most of the morning taking and uploading pictures of some of my latest peices, and have realised that i havent got as much stock as i thought!! (i am quite the self critic, and dont consider some of my other work to be exactly the creation i was hoping for). so here is some of my 'stuff'!

feel free to scribble (or should i say 'tap') some words as to your impressions of my fairy's accessories. i am now going to see off the risk taking urchins and get on with some housewor..................................... oh no, i've picked up my parcel.............i can see lots of shiny wire just begging to be shaped and moulde................................. too late, ive been distracted AGAIN!

crikey i find it hard to navigate round a site! much better at navigation in a vehicle, and i'm a woman!! haha

well today (inbetween my day job and being a mum) i've mostly been researching and planning for my jewellery designs 'enterprise'. i use the term 'enterprise' quite loosely you understand as its pretty much at the early stages (although i've had even more interest from aquaitances and 3 jewellery parties coming up!) think i'll throw in another picture here just to give the feel of what i'm about. its all very well me waffling on about my plans and progression, but if anyone actually reads any of this its not gonna make much sense without some visual back up! this is a leather choker with silver wire roughly coiled.

if i'm honest, i've also been feeling a bit guilty at not taking the kids out over easter. they had a great birthday party at the beginning (played some brilliant games that i got off the net and adapted) but the rest was mainly me doing my 'jewellery stuff' with a bit of vegging out in front of the box with some home made popcorn! at least we have plans for the end of term which includes some wild animal spotting; thats 'looking for', not changing their appearance with daubs of paint!! (*must remember camera!*)

this picture is one of my favourite places in the south east. in my opinion, the best beach in kent!(and its location is a secret as its not well known so i'm keeping it under my sunhat!)

First Blog! Monday 24th march 2008

HELLO and welcome to my blog!

It wasnt easy. Trying to set up a blogspot while Billy Elliot is on the box. Just about finished before the film did, which was just as well cos I wouldnt have seen my monitor through the blur of my teary eyes......................haaaah (*gently stroking the bottom eyelid). Thats better!

well this is me (i'm gonna relax now and not worry about capitals - ok?) . i'm not ordinary - just like everyone else! i've been creating for 8 years now, and since designing and crafting jewellery last year i've decided to take the advice of many friends and aquaintances and take it further. so this could be an interesting blogspot (if your into that kinda thing) as i will endevour to jot down my comings and goings (and succeses, naturally!)

i would also love to here from anyone who is starting a new adventure too.................

going to get some sleep now. sadly have the 'day job' to go to in the morning. one day though.........................................!
