Whilst I was preparing for the craft fair in June I sat looking at my clay and paired up a deep purple and summery turquoise. I decided they would look lovely, together, as feathers.

They have taken the time to write comments and like my posts… Continue reading Hello, Thank You and Teacher Gifts.
I’ve been lost recently under a pile of craft stuff. I’ve been decluttering the house (and I’ve been ruthless!) but I was adamant I wasn’t going to go through any of my craft items. I was convinced that I needed everything I had and that everything had a home. Only when the rest of the… Continue reading Fimo Necklaces
