First of all in the post from a dear blog friend and truly amazing artist, I received my compo charm I won. I can’t believe I got chosen, I mean I know everyone says it, but I never win anything and this came at a time when I really needed cheering up. Not only did she send me the truly inspiring Charm, she also sent me a blown up version in picture format which is going up in my craft room, but hey I may make a nice frame for it first(watch this space). You must all go and check out Christine’s Blog it is such a great read.
So BIG THANKS to Christine of Bellacole, now to decided how I should use it?
Now on the subject of soldered charms, big thanks also to Erin, I told you it felt like my birthday, well I asked Erin (after seeing on her blog) if she would make my sister and I soldered name charms and she did, so I then went to work and made us both a pretty Necklace. I can’t show you Shannon’s though as she hasn’t taken it off long enough for me to picture.
Well then it hit me, do you know what I have only 4 pieces of my own creations so I thought as I have not been in the beading mojo of late I would make myself a nice simple Black Necklace as I have no Black, so using Hematite and the old faves Swarovski Crystals in Lilac, voila..
So it seems slowly but surely I may return to the world of blogging and crafting, next weekend will be the test as dear hubby is on a Boys Car weekend, which means I am left alone with no form of transport so its just me, the TV and Craft. Woohoo.
Take care, love to all and hope your weekend has been fun.
