It's the WEEKEND !

YAY - it's late afternoon and that counts as the weekend for me in my book !  Unfortunately, there will be a slight delay since my husband is stuck on the M56 motorway due to it being closed after an accident :-(  Hope no-one is badly hurt and I'm sure my weekend can wait until they're all cared for.

No craft fairs this weekend which makes a pleasant change - I can get on with all the other things I should be doing - washing, cooking, cleaning, ironing..............  I think I'd rather be at a craft fair !

Ah well "HAPPY WEEKEND" to you all

Motor Neurone Disease Charity Ball

Well I actually had a night off last night !

We (husband and me!) went off to Stoke on Trent for a Charity Ball in support of this fabulous and tireless charity.  It was a fantastic night and the Auction raised a huge amount.  One item alone (for Take That tickets and VIP hospitality) went for way over £3,000 !!!!

Anyway, as I said, a good night was had by all and today is a little quiet (recovering lol) but I'll be back at the beads tomorrow with a few goodies that should hopefully be added to the site by Monday night :-)

See you all at Port Sunlight next Sunday !

Journalistic Talents

I just had to share this with you and I thought it warranted its own entry !

My 16 year old son has always wanted to be a journalist or commentator on motor sport and is trying very hard to break into this highly competitive arena, so you can imagine how pleased he is and how proud I am that he's won a competition organised by MotorSport Vision (MSV) who own Brands Hatch, Oulton Park and a few other racing circuits in the UK.

The entrants had to watch a re-run of a race on the web, then write a race report about it in less than 300 words (quite a difficult one to do in that small amount of words I think).  Anyway, my son submitted his and got a phone call yesterday from our local MSV circuit with the good news that he's won.  As his prize, he gets to do a Young Drivers Day at the circuit, gets his competition entry published in the local newspaper, and gets to write a report on his driving experience which will get published in the programme for a major event to be held at Oulton Park (our local circuit)

How proud am I ????

Congrats Andy x

Back in the Land of the Living again - I think !

I'm so pleased that my nasty cold finally seems to have run its course and is backing off, leaving me free to get on with my day to day life once again.  My eye is still a bit nasty but at least I can see again now - thank heaven for Opt**x Eye Drops - can you get addicted to them hee hee !  Can't believe it's over a week since it struck me down so badly; I mean who gets hit with a cold for THAT long ???  Answer - ME !

Anyway, back to normality as I said and yesterday I got a big push in the right direction with yet another of my jewellery creations being featured on a TV Jewellery Making show - fame at last perhaps lol !

Here's a piccie of the one that was shown - it's not actually on the website as yet as I did originally make it for ME !!!!!!  Perhaps it's gonna have to go on sale now though :-(

I had a delivery of gemstones on Monday which I haven't looked at yet and am waiting on the 2nd part of it today so hopefully I can get some creativity going soon and start moving forward since I've not really made anything for over a week now !

Managed to put about a dozen pieces on the website last night.  They've been sat waiting for what seems like forever - it just takes so long to photograph, them, crop them down, measure them, write the descriptions, oh dear the list is endless !

Anyway, that's enough about jewellery.  On Saturday I'm off to Stoke on Trent to a charity ball with proceeds going to the Motor Neurone Disease Society - should be a great night and hopefully will raise loads of money for this terrible disease.  Will get some pictures done on the night and you can all have a giggle some time next week at them :-)  Anyone else going ?

Back to normal - almost !

Hi everyone - sorry I've been 'blogless' for a few days but I was struck down with a terrible cold/flu-like 'thing' over the last few days, culminating in a lovely eye infection which has left me with one eye partly closed.  Luckily it's starting to get better but I'm still struggling to see properly so today's blog will also be pretty short in the hope I can give my eye another day to rest and be back to normal tomorrow :-)

Anyway, not much has happened since my last blog since I also couldn't see to make any jewellery, haven't been out anywhere as I couldn't see to drive and really I've been living a bit of a boring life over the last few days.  Doesn't it make you think how much you value your eyesight when something goes wrong with it.........

Catch up with you all later - will have a crack at making some jewellery or photographing the bits that are sitting waiting to go on the website later so will let you have a look at something tomorrow :-)

Take care
