Music Saves My Soul Saturday

Woohoo, MSMS has finally returned.. How excited are you lol????? Well after a break of several years and a little bit of nattering from the lovely Lydia I have decided to host it again.

What is it I hear you ask? Well, it is just a place once a week to share a music video that you really enjoy. Somethimes there may be a theme but usually it is just whatever you are loving right now.

There are no real rules other than to post your link to your blog post below using the linky. On your own blog you should share your video and it would be really nice if you also shared our MSMS piccy too.Try to help spread the word ..... the more people who join in the more fabulous music we can find. It would also be really nice if you could leave peeps a comment if they play along - we all love those don't we :)

So what to choose ..... hmm a toughie because there are a couple I would like to share this week ..............

This one I just adore since the first time I heard it ...............

One Republic - Counting Stars

That is such a fantastic song.

Ah, do you know what - I am just going to share 2 this week lol, well I have been away for ages.
It is the new Britney video. Delighted to see her back stronger than ever - there is just something I love about this girl :)

Yay, now I feel better!!

Ok, so just start sharing the little MSMS pic on your blog (sidebar would be great with link to my blog) and then add your blog post below ...... yay have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep your ears warm in a cozy craft room


Hello again, well I am back as promised with some more photos of my craft room and also a new design for me … a knotted crochet headband / earwarmer.

I do enjoy doing the odd bit of crochet. I have to admit after making so many owl hats last winter I almost got fed up of it but I am back enjoying it again. Here is a headband I made last night.


I am now crafting in my craft room. The carpet fitters returned on Saturday with my carpet and fitted it in no time. After that it was a case of taking my storage unit to pieces and then reassembling it again in my room. All that was easy cos then I had to bring everything upstairs and pack it all away. I have to admit  was blumming exhausted by the end of Sunday but no rest for the wicked – I then had a night shift to do!


So here is my room partially filled…


A very tidy desk ….. doesn’t look like that at the moment lol. I have now got a light fitting and curtains. I also have another shelving unit to be put in. I was going to have some floating shelves above my desk but I have changed my mind for now, I prefer having the space there for now ….. maybe in the future I will find something I would like there instead.

I probably won’t have a post for you tomorrow because it is my mother-in-law’s funeral however I shall be back on Saturday.

If you would like the chance to win one of my bracelets pop over to my crafting facebook page before Sunday to find out how.

Have a lovely evening x

Lady Luck


Hi everyone. It has been a few days since my last post because I have been on nights. All finished now though so that is good.

Today I want to share a bracelet I have made for Beading Friends Forever challenge – pop over if you love making jewellery because each month someone will win £15 to spend at Beads Direct.

So I discovered this beautiful tutorial on Youtube and I have to say I adore this bracelet.


I have made this with gorgeous fresh water potato pearls and Swarovski chaton crystal montees. It is so pretty in real life and HEAVY!


Here is a closer look at the detail of the design.

I am definitely going to make more of these but I think I might have a bit of fun with brightly coloured glass pearls and see what it looks like.

My craft room is almost finished now – just curtains and shelves to go up. I have moved in and am happy up here. I shall share some more pics tomorrow of the progress.

If you would like to know what I used to make my bracelet here are the picture links …..

If you would like to buy any of my jewellery please pop over to my crafting Facebook page.

See you all tomorrow xx
