Who lives in a house like this?!

After cleaning my pet out last night I realised I had put a little too much paper in for her! The only time ive seen her today is when ive come with ginger nut biscuits!

Can you guess what it is? Her name is Monkey as she likes to climb.

She's a rat! She is absolutely lovely. She has a real personality and incredibly fond of food!

And this is her trying to get her ginger nut!

On the subject of monkeys would you take a min to fill out a quick survey created with Survey Monkey. You will automatically be entered into a draw to win a black agate pendant

Todays Makes from Old Bead Stash

yI have decided that before I purchase any new beads I am going to clear out the ones I already have.
I bought loads in the past and when I received them had no idea what I would make with them but they are ALL going to be used now.

These are todays makes so far. I made two memory wire bracelets which I really dont enjoy making but thats the last of the wire now YAY!

I also made a necklace from Strawberry Quartz, Pearls and Peridot with a rose shaped Shell pendant.

What do you think?

I'm going to use the money Ive saved on buying beads to go towards some new flyers to promote my jewellery parties.

What a day!

I had my first craft fair of the year today. I got up bright and early drove to the venue with an hours set up time but couldnt find the building anywhere!

In the end I got some help from a lovely parking warden! I know! He walked with me to the gallery which I would never of seen on my own.

There was no parking which proved a real pain too.

The event turned out to be a complete washout there were so many jewellery stalls and virtually no passing trade.

As it was so quiet it did give me time to get making and I did this. Its made from handmade lampwork glass beads in clear and crystal cubes (excuse the pic)

I also met a lovely man called Dave. He and his wife make jewellery made from real flowers. They are truly stunning. I have seen them at events before but never had the chance to talk before today.

These are some of their items.
