Something to brighten up your Saturday

Good morning. Oh what a miserable morning it is today. It is so dark and well..... just horrible.

As promised I amback with another bracelet I made a couple of days ago. I have to say I am really enjoying making other things apart from cards. This is another hugs and kisses bracelet. 

I am really happy with my photograph of this bracelet. I have been trying different angles and I think this works quite well. As soon as I showed it on my Facebook page a lovely lady bought it so it should be at it's new home by now.

I have just got another huge order this morning ... all semi precious beads so I can't wait to use them. I placed another order yesterday too (I know, I know ... I am addicted lol).

I hope you all have a really nice weekend. I may be back tomorrow with some sparkly things .... mwah xxx

A little bit of sparkle fro the weekend

Hi again, I thought I would share a bracelet I made last week. I am really enjoying making jewellery and have just place another big bead order. Sigh, I am truly addicted already but hey, it keeps me out of trouble.

This beauty has purple pearls and then really gorgeous purple crystal bicones and pink seed beads to embellish. Another of those lovely silver and crystal magnetic clasps. I am really proud of this one because it was quite fiddly for a beginner like myself lol.

I have another bracelet to share but I will post it tomorrow

Have a lovely weekend folks xxx

My first bracelet

Hi there, just a quickie to show you a bracelet I made last night. I am so proud of myself and am now totally hooked on beading!!!!

I made this following a tutorial on YouTube and it was pretty simple to be honest. I have used black Agate and Swarovski pearls and then finished with some really beautiful seed beads. I really love the blingy magnetic clasp and I will be buying loads more of these little beauties.

I will be back tomorrow to share my bracelet that I have just finished tonight. xxx

Spiderman Hat

Hi everyone, just thought I would share this hat I have made for someone. It is of course Spiderman and is really easy to make. 

Keep a look out for the New Year and lots of new crafty things from me. Finally my blog will live up to it's name and be a crafty corner ... not just a card corner. I have ordered a squillion beads and can't wait to start making my own jewellery .... honestly, it is ridiculous how excited I am about learning a new craft.

Anyway, I better get a move on. Got another couple of hats to finish and also my SSS card for tomorrow to make. One day off is NEVER enough!!

See you all tomorrow xxx

What I have been up to

Afternoon everyone. I thought I would start sharing my crochet creations here on my blog with you all. I taught myself a couple of months ago (YouTube is so helpful) and I am now well and truly hooked. 

I have been making loads of owl hats and also ear warmers and wristwarmers (fingerless mitts)

Here are just a few things I have made.

The owl hats have been really popular - I do love them a lot.

Here is a little set - owl hat and baby mitts

Cute flower cloche hats 

Really popular ear warmers - perfect for girlies who don't like hats. These are really fashionable at the moment and I still need to make myself one!

.....and some super warm wrist warmers - great for keeping warm and being able to use your mobile.

That's just a little glimpse of what I have been up to. I will start posting my creations here from now on. I have loads of other photos on my crafty Facebook page if you want to look.

Off to finish a hat for a girl at work ... promised I would take it in tonight.

Stay warm xxxxx

What’s your favourite?



Good afternoon, what a frosty day it is. I have just woken up – on nights again, sigh. Oh well, not to worry – at least I get to snuggle up in bed all day.

Over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog today we want to know what is your favourite stamp, product or tool. This is really hard for me to choose because I love so many things however I do love my sparkle.

The product I chose was gold Spray & Sparkle by Crafter’s Companion.


I made this box for my niece’s christening gift last weekend. I am so happy with how it turned out. The gold Spray & Sparkle was sprayed on a plain white flower and it really looked gorgeous in real life. Another favourite product is the Ultimate – also by Crafter’s Companion. Talk about easy construction!

Simply snowflakes



Only me again – not doing too bad with my posts considering I am on a 13 hour shift!! I always get a little nervous scheduling my posts cos good old Mr Blogger has been known to misbehave at times. Anyway, fingers crossed it all goes like clockwork!

It is now time for my DT card for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. This week we want to see snowflakes. The DT are all using Glitter Ritz products which, btw, are just divine!!!!


Now then, this is VERY different for me but I am determined to continue trying new styles. I have realised sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t but I am having real fun trying new styles of cardmaking.
