Where did 2014 go?

Posted on


It must be that I am getting older but 2014 just whizzed by. I hope this year doesn't do so fast! I have had a great year, spent time with friends and family, had some fantastically successful craft fairs and some not quite so good.
I have learnt a new set of skills by attending a short morning workshop with Melanie Muir who is a polymer clay artist based in Nairn, Scotland. I hope that by getting so many helpful tips and advice from Melanie that I have nailed the Mokume Gane technique to use in my handmade jewellery.
I have plenty to look forward to in 2015 too! Firstly I am having a weekend to the place of my birth, Manchester, going to the theatre, having dinner with family and much more. the weekend after that I am off to Bristol to another polymer workshop. People attend from different parts of the world and I am sure it will be fun. I will keep you updated nearer the time
In the summer, my husband and I are going to Paris. I have already rented an apartment and I will be looking for more and more inspiration.
I have sent out a newsletter with a 20% discount off my website today and if you pop over to my Facebook page, there is a 10% discount for everyone else. Offer open until 5th January 2015


Today has been a wee bit of a groundhog day. I have made a bracelet bar from polymer clay (mokume game of course!) and wanted to add a bracelet of seed beads. Oh well it was one of those days where I kept threading and re threading the beads as I kept dropping them. I also successfully made some bead cone caps too! I hope it was worth the hours I spent on it!!!
