About Me

My photo
North West, United Kingdom
I am keen crafter, with a particular fondness for pearls and all things shiny and a dream that one day I might just own that little shop I've always wanted to run. I am forever making something whether it's some cards, jewellery or something knitted... the devil makes work for idle hands, but mine are rarely idle!

A satisfied customer



Last week I made a sale to a lovely lady and seller from Folksy. Well, not only did I make a sale, but also have received a mention on her blog - jennyflowerblue.blogspot.com. Why not check out Jenny's blog - it's another fabulous crafty blog. Obviously, it is lovely to make a sale and make some money - which is hastily spent on more crafting materials, but more than that is the fact that someone else loved your creation. It is lovely to receive feedback from satisfied customers - I take pride in my crafts and it is fab knowing it is appreciated.

I'm back!


I have finally made it into my craft room today after a rather long hiatus. Hopefully, I am back in action! I've made some lovely grey freshwater pearl earrings today - starting small after my break, don't want to overdo it! I love freshwater pearls - they look beautiful in their simplicity on their own, but equally fantastic when coupled with gemstones or crystals. I just love these earrings - simple, but elegant and perfect for a touch of sophistication for any occasion. These earrings are available to purchase in my Folksy shop.
I also need to use my limited time to start knitting a baby gift for my friend who is due in a few weeks time - I really need to get a move on! I have some lovely cream merino wool at the ready and just need to finally decide exactly what I am going to knit.
