Another day in paradise!!!

Today I thought I would show you what I made for my friend, Karen's birthday, better late than not at all. She will need to put photos of her own children in the bracelet.

Karen I think we need to put a few more beads on what colours do you fancy?

Instead of a card I thought I'd do a sign for her shop to hang. It is just a pity she didn't get them actually on her special day. I hope she likes!!

Other than that my plans for today have been scuppered as my eldest son has been sent home from school, he doesn't look too ill?!*

It seems so long since I last blogged but I have been a busy bee updating stock which was very low and coming up with some new card designs.
Thought I would just share with you the jewelry I made over the holidays whilst I couldn't get near the 'puter. The necklace is from and many thanks Tracy for an enjoyable kit, as you can see I altered it slightly!
Tracy has other lovely kits on the site, well worth a look.
The other jewelry is a remake of an early charm bracelet, which I love. The little photo frames being from Kay and co, given to me a couple of Christmases ago by Karen.
I've enjoyed playing with jewelry for a change.........must stick with papercrafts with all this stash waiting for a good home!
There are just not enough hours in the day for a craftoholic!!

Happy New Year everyone.
I hope you had a good festive season, time now to get back to normal. I haven't done a lot of crafting over Christmas although I did manage this wall hanging for Karen, guess she'll get to put it up next year! Note to self must get one made for next year.
Still I got the boys stockings finished but they've gone away before I could take a pic, a new camera too! Shame on me.
We enjoyed a good holidays at home with the boys and had friends over for a week at New Year. An invite to neighbours for ringing in 2008 made for an enjoyable evening and even the boys managed to keep going which is a first, with a trip down to the Hopeman cairn just to finish them off at midnight.
So at this point I will sign off for's wishing you and yours all the very best for 2008, may it bring joy and happiness to wouldn't that be a good start.
