Where has this week gone!!

Well I cannot believe its nearly the weekend again, this last week has just flown by!!!  I got up on Saturday at 6 am and dragged George out of bed and drove her back to Chester, settled her into her new house and then drove home again!!  I was back home by 2pm shattered but so glad to get off the M6!!

Here's George in her new house, she is a very happy bunny to be back at Uni.
So on Sunday I had to get up early to take Jason to work he was mean't to be away again all week and I was dreading it because I hate not having him around, espeically having to cook for myself!! tee hee.  Luckily things worked out better than he thought and he came home on Tuesday Yay!! 

I kept myself pretty busy anyway and made lots of beads, I am still playing around with my silver glass and made these with a press I have had for a while and never got round to using.

I really like this shape and so made a braclet too

Then I thought it would be a great shape to make some Animal beads so made these, my favourite is the piggy so far!!

I think next time I get in the shed I am going to play around with this idea a bit more!!  thinking maybe cows next and then maybe made some tree beads, as think would be good on this shape!!

Anyway I so looking forward to the weekend, hopefully have a day out to the seaside, I really want a walk on the beach!! 
Hope you all doing ok xxxxxx

Just Catching Up

Well I am back from a brilliant extended weekend in Surrey and now trying to catch up with everything!!
Here is where we stayed
Madgy loves it there were lots of ducks to watch and you can walk miles from the door through a big golf course and stunning scenery. This is our second stay here, its about 1/2 an hour to my best friend's house and a great base.  Oh and a wonderful pub right on the doorstep too! :0)

While we were staying there I popped out and spent as much time as I could catching up with Jayne and her lovely family, it was her Son's first birthday and she had a lovely party for him. On Monday we went to Camberley I had beads to post and we had lunch with her Mum. 
I even managed to make a couple of bits while we where chilling out in the evenings.

So the next couple of days I plan to make new beads and get them stocked back in my ebay shop and then I have a busy weekend taking my daughter back to Chester Uni and then Jason is being sent off to Essex for a week! :0( .

Hope you all having a good week

Happy Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to you all, I have been keeping myself pretty busy making lots of beads over the last week or so.


I bought some new Double Helix glass and I am really enjoying trying out different combinations to see what colour mixes I can come up with!!
 I have had quite a bit more shed time over the last week with Jason having to work in London and the girls all busy making the most of there last few days before they all return to College/School/Uni.  I love it when they all busy and out my hair!!!!  he he   On Sunday we were mean't to be going to a duck race but it got rained off!!  lol  (this is were they put hunderds of yellow ducks in the river, they are all numbered and if yours gets to the finishing line first you win!!) its normally quite a fun day but not in the pouring rain even if they ducks did not mind!!.  So we had Sunday dinner with my Mum instead and drank wine!!!!

Mum asked me to make some new necklaces for her neighbours so I made these
I plan on trying to make some more over the next few weeks as Jason's Mum likes to take them to sell to her friends near Christmas and I have hardly any made!!

I am really looking forward to the weekend its my freinds son's first birthday and she is having a party for him, he is sooo gorgeous and I miss seeing him grow up as we live so far apart!!

My ebay is also getting nicely stocked as I try to add new beads most days here is the link

hope you all having a good week and its not too windy and rainy!!
