New on Etsy

Why do the weekends go that fast? well i actually managed to make a few pieces off jewellery which are now on sale in my etsy shop, hope you like. I got my order off greek ceramic washers from beadsite, so pleased with them they are just gorgeous, i'm now needed to place an order for silver wire, better get ordered tomorrow. Was standing in the cold and rain this morning watching my lovely son playing football, thankfully they won but! it did go into extra time, so they eventually won 4-2 well done Daniel. Hope everyone had a fab weekend, i'm off to bed now.x

Abstract Twist

I have been playing with copper pipe again today, I have made this piece in the photo, i really need to get protectors for my finger tips, with all the sanding i will have to finger prints left.(ha) I have never left the house today as it's sooo cold outside, i have the heating on nearly 24/7 at the moment, really wish this snow would go away but! it is saying we are to get more on Monday and Tuesday. I have been adding some of my pieces to Etsy as well, so fingers crossed, still to get some fairs booked for this year so i better get moving. My diet is so so, i have done a few sit up well 100 today that is okay i suppose, but i did cheat and i have had 2 glasses of wine, start on Monday i promise. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I have another necklace featured in Febuarys issue of beads and beyond magazine, hope you like it, i have added a photo of it, but it looks much better in the magazine than my hopeless photo. Hope everyone is not too fed up with all this snow that we are having? well i just had the minus tempetures that we are having, mind you some places in scotland are in the -20's we are not as bad as this just -7 or so but still cold. The kids where ment to go back to school on Wednesday but they went back today, typical as they are only half days on a friday so they where there for 3 hours. I have been playing about with copper again and i have added a few photo's to my flickr site have a look and let me know what you think.

snow again

The snow seems to be here one minute then gone the next but it's back again, i have posted a photo of my back garden this is what snow feel just last night. I have also started my diet today, but the minute you say diet is the minute you want to eat, then count the hours to when you can eat again (ha). I also placed an order on amazon today for a few jewellery books, can't wait to get them, My hubby is back to work tomorrow, but i don't go back till wednesday, the same day as the kids start back school.

What will 2010 bring

well for 2010 i hope to blog more, set up a new esty shop as i never did anything on the last one, plus i hated the name, so will start it tomorrow, I shut my website just at the end of last year, it was'nt doing that great so thats why i want to list items on etsy. Will have to get some craft fairs booked, i had a great year with them last year so hopefully all goes well this year. Another thing is i want to try my hand at resin, more silversmithing work, enameling, so i will need to buy some books on these topics. The other thing that starts on monday is my diet yes i know what us ladies are like just after chrimbo we want to be thinner, so the diet books will be dusted of once again with my exercise machine. My freind and i are going to do a 12 mile walk for st columbus hospice in june, so we are going to get into training for that, I hope 2010 is a good year for everyone.
