A whole new months appeared!


I knew I wouldn't be very good at keeping up to date with my blog! I just seem to have so much else on the go at the moment.

First things first I have been busy updating my website with some of my latest jewellery creations which are ready for Christmas you can see them here

and heres a pic of just one of my necklaces to whet your appetite.

Hang on ..... don't dash off just yet I have some rather exciting news to share.

I recently entered the stamper of the year contest in Simply Stamping magazine. Now although I wasn't the lucky winner of one of the fabulous prizes I have had a letter from the editor saying they liked my work and would like to feature some of it in a special article with the best of the entrants who entered but didn't win!

Thats good enough for me, I've never had any of my work featured in a proper magazine before!

It will be in Issue number 8 which I believe is out early in January 2007 so do keep an eye out (even its only a tiny picture)

Finally sorry to Kathy and friends for still not having a go at the daring cardmakers challenge - the stuff everyones producing is just brilliant http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/

and I do keep having a look at what you've all been up to even if I haven't contributed much yet.

Hi Jan - didn't realise you had a blog - found you at Kathy's place. That necklace is gorgeous!!! I still haven't done any more than the one you showed me when you were down - too many things to do and not enough time these days now I am back at work.

Good Luck with the fair
