Another Month… More Projects and a Sewing Circle

Well, I’m sorry that I’ve not been around here much later but things been pretty hectic once again.

 

I have managed to do some more bits with my watercolour pencils- what do you think? And some new bits of jewellery.

Am thinking the watercolours will be turned into a fantasy card range soon 🙂

In addition this month one of my necklaces is in the Supermum’s Pop Up Marquee over on facebook- if you not been there for a browse go go go.

And… you remember that sewing circle I briefly mentioned? Well it’s set up. If you fancy being with likeminded people for chat and inspiration pop on over.

My New Favourite Thing….

If anyone is like me.. you will have loads of crafty bits and bobs lying around from wool to fabrics to fimo to beads and even artsy stuff.

After being inspired to pick up the Michael Powell stamp from Trago a few weeks ago I finally decided to try it out……. since I had enough jewellery in my shop for a bit and the sewing machine isn’t wanting to be friends this weekend.

Usually with stamps I would just throw myself in with the limited supply of pro markers I own but as I’m taking part in the Crafty Folk Round Robin Giveaway- full details here. And…. it’s arrived on the doorstop for my turn I needed to do something different.

Out came the art set… mmm I tried pastels first with some colouring pencils and promarkers thrown in- looks alright doesn’t it?

Then I remembered some watercolour pencils I bought awhile back and decided to play…. attempts 1 and 2 in order.

Number 2 is definitely my favourite! And now… I might just be addicted to watercolour pencils as I’m already planning my next project.

What does everyone think?

So with the price increases the postal service has gotten worse! I’m  used to my post being delivered before 9am now I’m lucky if it’s here before 3pm.
