Today, no work, all play!

Have had a great day makes, no work on the shop today was all about family. Myself, my kids and my Mum all went to see my gorgeous Hubby recieve a medal from Prince Andrew. The Bugles Pipes and Drums were playing, the Rain was pouring and the wind was blowing but nothing could dampen our spirits as "the hubby" beemed from ear to ear when recieving his medal. Makes the 7 months apart seem somehow worthwhile. After the Padre's service and the March Off an RAF helicopter saluted the crowds and whirled off into the distance.....A day to remember for a very long time!!!! x

I've had a bit of a play today and come up with a new design for my Personalised Handbag Charms. It's made using Chain, Glass Beads and Charms. With Tibetan Silver letters. I made a green glass one for an order and liked it so much I made myself a blue one. It's available through Facebook or Folksy. I love the way the beads chink together as you move about.

Tomorrow I'm having a day off jewellery making as my Mum has come to visit and we are spending the day together...can't wait seems like ages since we spent some time together. Busy day on Saturday will tell you all about that going to be a very proud wifey!! x

Watches and Bangles

I am really into European Style Beads at the moment..I love the effect they give and the boldness of them. I've made up a couple of Watches and a bangle so far. I'd love to know what you think?


I've done it...after lots of ums and ahhhs I have finally set up my Folksy Shop. At the moment it has the same items as the Facebook page and the Website...but I am working on some new bits and pieces to list in it. The way I figure it is the more ways for people to find me the better lol.....not quite sure if that's the way it works, but it's all got to help...surely. One of the pieces up for grabs over there is this Rose Quartz Tumbled nugget Bracelet...I think at the moment it's my favourite piece.

Love this poem! Recipe for the perfect Family.

How To Create The Perfect Family 

by Katy

You will need:
1 large house
3-6 people, depending on how long you want to wait for it to be done
3 cups of pets
2 cups of patience
3 ounces of anger/frustration
3 quarts of laughter
4 teaspoons of trust
And last but definitely not least,
Lots and lots of love

First, open the house, and make sure that it will be the right size for your family. Mix the desired amount of people with the pets, carefully so you don’t damage them. In a separate bowl, stir the love and laughter together. Set aside. Taking each person separately, evenly distribute the patience and trust, making sure that each one gets an equal amount (Failure to distribute evenly may lead to different recipe! See recipe for “My impatient family” for details…). Carefully open the bottle of anger/frustration. Using a Q-tip, dab small portions of the anger/frustration onto each person. Lastly, take the love and laughter and sprinkle it all over the house, pets, and people. Let sit until all parts of the recipe are thoroughly combined, and voila! Your Perfect Family is complete.

Working hard.

I have had a busy few days on the shop, lots of behind the scenes work such as SEO and tweaking. It's not my most favourite job but I have let it slide a bit in the last few months and it's one of those jobs that just HAVE to be done!! I've also been working on a couple of ideas for some wedding favours. I decided to make up some samples of wine glass charms with Swarovski Crystal in their own organza bags. These Wine Glass Charm Favours look really pretty and can be matched to any theme.

I have also been working on a new design for a chunky summery Necklace I would love some feedback on it. Let me know what you think. x
