I'm still here!!

Good grief where does time go? It's been 7 months since I last blogged. Somewhere during that time my cardmaking mojo seems to have vanished, the last card I made was for Lola's 2nd birthday and guess what I haven't even made a single Christmas card either!! 
Even though the ole cardmaking mojo is awol, I have been having a go at something else and it's all thanks to my wonderfully talented friend Tracey Drage-Baillie. I have been messing around with beads and I'm actually enjoying myself, even though in the beginning my mantra was "I am not getting into beads!" ha ha ha I can tell you that no matter how much I repeated my mantra it didn't work and I have enough beads now to open a small shop!

I have been making bag/key charms, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and recently stumbled across Macrame. 


The top one is made using black cord with metal beads, the middle one is black leather thong with purple crystal rondelles and the last one is made using green cotton thong and 12 beautiful green Swarovski beads, all three bracelets have a sliding knot that will adjust to most wrist sizes. 

Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them. Thanks for popping by and I'll try not to leave my next post as long. Bye for now xx
