Close up of the owl

Its made it all the way to america in reord time so i can post it now. I loved doing it and am very proud of it and will definately be doing more.

Hope you like it
Tea Wallet and necklace I have made

The picture doesn't really do the tea wallet justice, the material is a blue/gold/green color which shimmers as the light hits it.

The necklace is on hemp cord and is a wooden bead with a chainmaille mobeus ring on the botton in pink.

I can finally show off some of the stuff I have been making lately as they have been received so it won't ruin any surprises

Firstly my OTT swap, I made a set of stitch markers based on veneitian carnivale masks and put them in an altered altiod tin. I made these using Air Dry clay and it was really easy to use, then i painted them using acryllic paint, which was slightly more tricky since i'm not very good with paints!

Earrings and lots of beads for my Bead Soup Swap

I've had a couple of busy weeks.....I've been doi ng lots of crafting, but its all for swaps i'm in at the moment so i cant show any, hopefully they will be received this week.

I was lucky enough to get to go see Take That at Mancester last week :) It was a fab day out, me and my sis went, The Script were on first and they were brilliant and then Take That and the Circus came on - WOW is all i can say, the most amazing show and best entertainment i've seen in ages
