Good morning ladies. A few posts ago I mentioned that looking in my shop, everything is blue. At least I think I mentioned it. If I didn't then I DID think it, but forgot to type it.
Well anyway, I decided that had to change. I started with using green on the linen pouch I made, and at the weekend I went for pink. I'm not a massive pink fan but I do buy pink supplies, I'm not sure why. I thought I had a load of pink beads but it turns out I don't have that many. I did have enough to make a set of jewellery though.
OK, so technically that's not jewellery, it's a book mark. But you could hang it on a chain round your neck or have it poking out of a shirt pocket if you wanted. I had intended to sew at the weekend, but Mr CA and the girls came home from a trip to Hobbycraft and wanted to make stuff. The girls did some decopatch, then I let them loose on my beads and they made simple elasticated bracelets. Mr CA spent most of the time fixing Miss CA's phone, then he made a shamballa bracelet. There was no way I was missing out on family crafting round the table so the beads came out for me too.
I love the lucite flowers on these earrings. I think I bought them from a stall on a day out somewhere, I just can't remember where and I wish I'd bought more. I'm sure I'll find some on line. Ready for the obligatory glass shot?
I have every intention of improving my photography. I've bought a book - Photography for Crafters, the one with the really cute felted panda on the cover, and a big flat white sheet. Now I just have to get a photography "studio" set up and take some pictures. I've only got a digital camera, but I hope I can improve at least a bit. The only problem is that the best place to take photos, light-wise, is my craft desk so I have to clear it off to take photos, I'd rather have somewhere permanently set up but it's tough!
The charm necklace is made with some charms I had all mixed up in a big bowl. They're one of those craft supplies that I often buy with the intention to use them for jewellery, cards, zip pulls, and then completely forget about so it was nice to use some here.
After the girls went home, I started making another necklace and became frustrated that my beads are all just randomly placed in those little clear compartment boxes. I then spent the next 3 hours putting them in boxes according to colour. I think OCD took over for a while.
I have some sewing planned for the weekend, wonder if it'll happen this time?
