Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind them at Christmas, but before then when you are busy and you never seem to see the light of day it can be a little bit depressing!
In Northern Ireland we are soo lucky to have those long summer nights that is still quite bright at 10.30pm! I love them!
Well this weekend the clocks go back! Daylight Savings Time! I have a little offer on my button clocks that I make at the moment on my website, so today was about making clocks and taking some updated product pictures.
I have a bad habit of being excited about an item that I have made, taking a quick snap and because then I get busy doing other things that quick snap becomes the official picture. I always say, oh I must take a day and sort out my pictures- BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS!
Any hoo here is my clock! x
I cannot believe that it has been a few months since my last post! Well what have I been up to? I have had a great summer of business thanks to my lovely customers. It never ceases to amaze me … Continue reading
Last month I brought out some new flower jewellery. I have been struggling with it for a while and it can be really annoying when you cant get it right! Now thanks to new resin my whole resin life has been changed!!!
This is my new 3 pansy necklace! This delicate flower originally from Russia ( I think!) is so pretty as a necklace. I barely have had mine off since I created it! I am hoping to work on some new colours soon, but for now I really like this one!
Who doesn’t love making a daisy chain? I always made them on my lunch hour when I was at primary school. My friends and I would set ourselves a challenge to see how long we could make one! I even remember our teacher measuring it as they were so impressed!! Anyway those daisy chains will wilt and die but this one won’t!
Button earrings are probably some of the first things I ever made! I am glad to say that they are just as popular then as they are now!
I forget how popular they are and then only release I need to make more when I run out!!!
Anyone other crafters like that?
I should know better!
These cuties are available on my website
Oh I hear there is snow on the way!!! I hate snow! Brrrr! Makes crafting chilly!!
I remember all of my teachers from school. Its funny I can’t remember half the people I went to school with!! I remember those teachers though for good reasons and bad reasons! If you like your teacher or your children … Continue reading

The Bride on her Big Day!!!

The bride had a wedding charm from her mother’s charm bracelet added into the resin heart. I added all the beads and a few buttons (of Course) and I was really pleased with the way it turn out!
Yesterday evening I headed up to Belfast to the 34th Belfast Brownies to teach them all how to make button brooches.
We had 20 children to get through in 1.5 hours usually I do 15 or less in more time than that! So I was under a little pressure. With the help of my friend Zanewe took to that task!
I have to say that the girls did really well and we managed to get all the brooches finished with seconds to spare!
Check out some of their brooches!!
AREN’T THEY ALL AMAZING!!!
I would like to that the girls for working so well with me and of course the Brownie leaders!!
Great night and great creations from a true CRAFT marathon!!
Steampunk has been around for as long as I can remember. The funny thing is though, I never really paid attention to trends and styles of jewellery until I actually started to make it myself! My jewellery has always been … Continue reading
