Happy New Year!

Bit late I know but I don't know where the time has gone!? I've been mainly concentrating on my recycled denim jewellery at the moment as its doing really well. Its being stocked by another company now called Eco Emporia who stock all sorts of lovely recycled, eco friendly goodies.

I had two very successful craft fairs at the end of last year & sold a lot of stock that I just haven't got round to replenishing so I won't book any more fairs just yet & my website is looking a bit bare. Still, shouldn't grumble!

Back to School & Poultry Farming!

Wow! I didnt realise it had been that long ago that I last blogged! I didn't really blog in the summer holidays as I hardly did any crafting as I wanted to spend all my time with the boys. They are all back at school now & really enjoy it, the middle started reception & my baby started pre school so I have free mornings now. Dont they look smart on their 1st day!?
Finding it hard to motivated again now, I've been doing the recycled jewellery still as always have orders for that but couldnt be bothered with anything else. I have a few craft fairs coming up though so that has started to motivate me to get cracking!
We've also bought a couple of chickens! Speckle & Gracie have been with us for a week now, not laid any eggs yet as I think they are not quite at laying point but its been fun having them. I let them out in the garden free range for the 1st time yesterday & was worried they would manage to escape but they were fine so I will let them out more often now.

Hopefully they will lay us some eggs soon. I'll keep you posted!

The Great Escape!

The lovely Sarah of Photo Fairytales used my hubby Dean for one of her delightful images on her website. Check him out & have a look at the wonderful other gift ideas, I think they would make terrific personalised birthday gifts for someone, isn't she talented!

Busy times & holidays!

I know I've been a bad blogger recently & not been posting very often, I do try to read everyone elses though! I had a really busy time a few weeks ago as I have some suppliers of my recycled bead jewellery & had a job keeping up for a time which is a good thing business wise but I didnt have a lot of time for anything else. The first supplier is Planet Trash who have a lovely range of eco friendly & recycyled goodies.

We also went on holiday the 1st week of the school holidays to the Lake District. We were quite lucky weather wise as we didnt get that much rain & had some lovely trips out. The boys loved the Laurel & Hardy museum & have been watching DVD's of them ever since!

Been trying to keep them all busy for the rest of the holidays what with the miserable weather so thats another reason for my lack of inetrnet presence as I am nagged to play as soon as I switch the laptop on! They are out with their grandparents today hence I am able to blog! Hope you are all enjoying the holidays too........
