New Toys!

Well, I decided to try crafting of a different kind - sort of scrap booking in a locket!

Here is my first locket using the kit I got from South Hill Designs.










Just to explain how it works, you get one of the glass lockets, then inside you add charms, coins or screens to express yourself.

Here are the items I used, there is a 'bone' (for my cat and dog) a 'bar of chocolate' (mmmmm... Sorry, got a bit distracted for a minute) and the word 'Love'.








The screen to the right is another element which I thought showed off the charm colours.

Here's a photo of the items in the kit. It took ages to put everything back. Lol.




If you want to see more, here's a link to see the goodies on the web.

If you would like to know more about getting some of the items, book an event to get free products (or get the kit yourself!) just call me on 07795566727 or just leave me a comment. I have some free catalogues now too, so contact me to get one.

I'm back!

And had a play in my craft room too - woo hoo!!!

Had a go with a stamp set I've had for ages but never got around to using, Stippled Blossoms.


I can't believe I've not used this set before, the artwork is stunning, so clear and sharp.

Here's a photo of the inside.



I did get some crafting done last week as it was my Hubbies Dads 80th birthday. But I remembered when we were on the way to the party that id forgotten to take a photo - doh!

Just an update on things before I go. The dog is doing great and his selective hearing when we are out walking is improving (just - lol ).

The chickens are not impressed with not being able to run around the garden due to the rubbish weather - but at least their run is covered to stump them getting wet.

Been doing lots of decorating over the last few weeks (that's the most 'papercrafting' I've been able to play with lately.

Lastly, I'm waiting for a really exciting parcel tomorrow (shame I'm out at work :-( most of the day) but it's a starter kit for a company called South Hill Designs.

They produce stunning glass lockets which you personalise with lots of different elements - based around hobbies, religion, family - seriously, they are absolutely beautiful.

The official launch of the company in the UK isn't until July but I thought I'd get in there early (you know me). I will try to post some photos and a link to the online shop tomorrow. If you would like a catalogue (or book a social event!) just call me on 07795566727.

That's it from me for now, thank you for being so patient.
