What you can do with an extra hour in the day.

Typical, an extra hour in the day so thought a nice lie in would be great but the cats had other ideas but at least it gave me a extra hour to try to be creative. I have just received the wonderful free Humphrey stamps from Crafters Companion so thought i would put them to good use. I already had the full set so dusted them off and got stamping. I used Pro markers to colour the images in but must admit that the grey's on Humphrey are using the spectrum Noir pens, as my grey pro markers have run out. All of these cards will be for sale at a craft fair in my local village hall next Sunday but if you see something you like I can make to order. Enjoy..

Jewellery day

Necklace, bracelet and earring set
Yesterday was so grey and cold that I ended up sat in front of the wood burner making a few items of jewellery using the stunning Design Elements and Inspiration beads from Beaders Companion. I was so happy with the results that i will be keeping these all to myself. The beads in the collection are absolutely stunning and you just want to look at them, but i needed to be creative so I made the following items. Hope you like them...

Todays makes

Its been one of those funny old days today when I know I should be doing something but have no idea what. So as something a bit different I have made some gift sets which include  a calender, gift bag, matching gift box and a greeting card..The images were all printed of the Joanna Sheen CD The Pamela West Collection See what you think... .

Something different

A collection of glass bead  necklaces, earrings and matching bracelets
As well as card making I have started making Jewellery much to my hubbies distress. This was following last years Craftaganza with Crafters Companion where they introduced us to the wonderful Sarah Millsop and the launch of the Beaders Companion website. It is a great hobby especially to do in the evenings when sat in front of the TV as I find not so much concentration is needed......Here are a few of the last creations that I have made. There are plenty more to show but just haven't got round to taking photos;

Another Autumn Day

I seem to have lost my inspiration mojo over the last few days so didn't manage to do much creativity today but did manage to put together a few cards and 2 gift boxes. I have got a craft fair in 2 weeks time and keep wondering if i have got enough of all the different things.....but you never know what people want to buy or pay for thats going to be the hard part putting prices onto things, so any advice appreciated....
