New Year Wishes

I am having a good old clear out. I have decided that if I do not know where to put something then I can throw it away!! Drastic maybe but having spent all day yesterday hunting out all of my receipts and invoices for the accountant I REALLY need to get my act together!

Thank you very much to all of our customers this year. We have sold far more online than we imagined we would and love you all because you appreciated our jewellery etc. Our accessories have been successful too so they will stay. Along with a new line in Seed Bead Jewellery and a new.....shh Jean.
New Year resolution? Oh Yes I have one! I am determined to push forward with our shops, we will be listing the kits (as picture) so that you can become as addicted to beading as we are.
Happy New Year to you all. Whichever way you decide to spend New Years Eve, have fun and look forward to bigger and better things for us all.

Happiness is.....

One: Jean at Little Scruffs, this teddy bear is an early Jean Grogan! I bought her for a friend at the Misi Event. Can not bear to let her go....she even has a pair of earring now! I am calling her Bette (Lynch!)
Two: The little sectioned dish next to her is from Noseks Just Gems. It is for my swarovski crystals. I love boxes with sections.
Sad, but true!

New bracelet

Hello all. How is the Christmas rush going for you. I am very calm here drinking a gin and tonic watching Spooks. Scares me to bits, although I do not always understand it all. Roz is not centre stage today and she is my favourite character.
This is my newest item. It is not listed yet as still warm from the crimping pliers!! It will be tomorrow. Red holly berry colour teamed with chunky black polished lava beads on wire with a huge Karen Silver toggle. I love it. Tempted to keep it for me!! That is the gin talking!!
Night night girls!

Here they are Mo, if they are what you were expecting I will pop them over to you.
Mo is a Misi friend and she asked for custom angels.

Misi Wiltshire meet up! Now look at our faces and you would be thinking, 'Thank goodness I could not make it'!!!!
But, the lovely chap taking the picture at the pub in Rowde, took so long that we had frozen smiles....We had a great time, all of us got on really well and had fun over lunch. Mo very kindly brought along goodie bags for us all. Thank you Mo. Very very kind.
Left to right: Taz Bride, Jewels of Isis, Talking Beads, Talking Beads, Mornie G, Rosy Tint.
Thank you girls for a lovely lunchtime get together. Why don't we arrange another one, Mo.

More decorations

These decorations, plus an angel, were inspired by the story about Indie-Meadow. A baby who died a little over a year ago. She is much loved and missed by her mother and big sister Paris Angel.
If you buy these I shall donate all of the sale price to the hospice where she and her family spent her last little time together.
They are in my misi shop.
Here is the link I could not get to grips with earlier. Tells you more than I can.

As there is no picture to go with this post I am putting one in of me!! Shy little thing that I am. I was at the Misi Event. You can see our jewellery and decorations on the picture too. Anyway, I digress:
I found this on Misi Forum. They are swopping Christmas recipes. I fancy this one! I think it came from Natty Needles, but perhaps I picked up her name when I was doing the past and copy bit!

'How about homemade Bailey's Cream:
1 tin of condensed milk1 pint single or double cream depending how thick you like it - double is better!
About 1/4 pint of whisky or if you want it Irish use whiskeyAbout 4-6 heaped teaspoons of instant coffee granules, espresso is best.
Add the coffee granules to the whisky and stir til dissolved.
Mix into cream and condensed milk. Mix well together and place in a sealed container in the fridge until chilled.
Drink and enjoy.
This is made very much to taste so it is essential that you taste as you go and increase the amounts of coffee and/ or whisky until it suits your preference.

I shall let you know if any more yummy stuff gets listed! Happy Sunday x

Custom order

This little collection is for Amy. She ordered a set of three decorations in red, white and silver. I also made her a little dancing angel as well as the discount she was entitled to for buying three did not work on Folksy.
I hope she likes them, the picture is a bit dark, but you get the idea.
We are doing well with the dex and have our last fair on Saturday.
No time to make any more tomorrow as working at office all day...
:-( I miss those little lovelies when I can not make at least one a day! Just as well Amy wanted three!
