Dream Valley Challenge 95 - Anything goes!

Ooooops! Guess who forgot to schedule their blog post!!! I'm all over the place at the moment trying to keep the house running smoothly while we're having our new bathroom fitted. There's so much to do.... I was really glad of the excuse to do something a little different for our new challenge at Dream Valley...


I went to the craft show at the NEC recently and picked up a few more bits and pieces to add to my jewellery making collection that I'm starting to build up. I wanted to make a nice Christmassy set.... What do you think?

This is only my second attempt at making a double stranded wire bracelet - a lot more successful than my first attempt! I added a little extension chain with a little Christmas tree charm :-)

And a little pair of earrings to match - I love how quickly I can make a pair of earrings! Absolutely loving my new hobby! Thank you to my friend, Yvonne, for the inspiration :-)

Make sure you pop over to Dream Valley to join in all the fun!

Love 'n' hugs,

Dream Valley Challenge 94 - Getting ready for Christmas!


I'm back! :-) Sorry I've been away so long - you may remember that I was packing away all my craft things ready for our house move when I last posted on here.... Well now we're all moved and settled in and (after 6 weeks of waiting!) we finally have internet connection - woohoo! :-) Things are still a little topsy turvy - not all of our boxes are unpacked and put away, and our bathroom is in a dreadful state awaiting new tiles and new plumbing and... well, new everything really. But the important stuff is unpacked so I can get back to my crafting and join in with my teamies over at Dream Valley again :-)

Goodness me! Last time I posted it was all sunshine and flowers and now we're:

Getting Ready for Christmas!!!!

So here it is, the first of my Christmas cards this year (I'll never learn to start in January, will I?!?)

And you won't be surprised by my LOTV image and papers.... I'm hoping they'll be at the NEC when I visit next week so I can top up my stash a bit more! :-)

Anyway, make sure you pop over to Dream Valley to join in all the festive fun!

Love 'n' hugs,
