Here is the Tote Bag I Received...

From Amicrafter on Crafteroo...
It is just 'me' and the chocolate that was in the bag was very yummy too!

CRAFTEROO - Tote bag Swap

I decided to sign up for this swap as I fancied a change from beading for a while. Then I started getting orders for beaded Christmas decorations and began to regret signing up :( This weekend, I decided to just get my sewing machine out and get on with it - well, it was a bit of a failure! I made a bag but would not be happy to send it to anyone as I had twisted the handles the wrong way! Today, I found some plain tote bags that I had ordered ages ago, with the intention of doing up. I decided to use one as the foundation for mine, and incorporate the handles into my make. So, today I made a bag that I love. The plain tote is the lining for my own make, and I have included a little extra to the design which I think is cute. I hope the recipient likes it - full pics when she has received it.

A few more things. Some of my jewellery photos seem to have disappeared but I will track them down hopefully!

Some Christmassy Bits

A couple of cards that I have been making lately.
I managed to upload my camera photos (and by 'I', I mean my husband lol...)I will be putting some on here soon.

Hey All!

Well, I HAVE been crafting lots of things. I have 400-odd photos on my phone, waiting to be uploaded (admittedly not all craft), but my laptop doesn't want to play ball. I tried taking photos on my tablet, so that I could update this blog from there, but the focus would not...erm, well, focus! :( Once I have managed to upload pics, I will also be re-opening my Folksy shop, in time for Christmas - it just might end up being Christmas 2013...

Loopy Garden Bracelet - Commission

Here is another one of my Loopy Garden Bracelets (the pattern for which has appeared in Bead Magazine). It was a commission for my next door neighbour and made me think differently about my usual choice of colour schemes. I tend to go for browns and teals, but black and white is definitely something I would consider exploring more!
