And the winner of my June Giveaway is........

My lovely friend Avril at Sprinkles Sparkles.
Congratulations you win the lovely Malachite and Swarovski Crystal Bracelet. Please let me have your address and the length you would prefer in case I need to alter it and I will whip it into the post for you.

Everyone else, don't get disheartened, I will start another giveaway in a day or so. Watch out for it and get your comments in.

By the way, I thought I would show off something new I made last friday. My wrists are still suffering from it, but it's so gorgeous and I'm very proud of it.

It is made using the Byzantine Chain Maille weave and consists of hundreds of tiny rings (made by myself!) all connected together. Isn't it gorgeous?!?!?!? When my wrists recover I am going to make some lovely therapeutic copper ones, although this one is silver plated copper so is still really good for you. :-)

I don't often blow my own trumpet but I was very proud of this!

Craft Corner - neat at last!

I'm exhausted, and very achy but it was worth it!!!! My little corner is now organised.

My workstation exists in a corner of my kitchen, this is partly because it enables me to make jewellery while I make dinner and also because the four of us live in a very small bungalow. It is rather cluttered too, a fact that annoys lovely husband a great deal. Luckily we don't have too many outbursts about it, I think because he has had to put up with me for a long time now. If he lived alone he would probably have a bed, a reclining chair, a very large tv and his playstation! Whereas I have a bit of a problem throwing things away (I may need it, you never know!). It actually does annoy me but by then it is a huge problem to sort out so just gets left a bit longer!

Anyway, I have been struggling on in a disorganised manner with my desk being used as a dumping ground by everyone. I couldn't concentrate and my books kept falling over so I woke up yesterday and decided to do something about it. After dropping the bigger one at school, small boy and I went over to our local Argos and collected two small shelving units. On our return we then set about putting them together. This wasn't going too well until I braved the shed and went through lovely husbands tool box (shhhh!) There I found a ratchet screwdriver, what a wonderful thing, now I know his secret to fast flatpack building! Small boy was a great help, a little on the bossy side but he did well. We soon had both shelving units together.

Then came the part that always seems to happen. I began to clear my desk top and drawers so that I could place the new shelves on top and get organized. Where did all of this stuff come from, it kept piling up, falling over, piling up some more. That's when I hit the 'wish I hadn't started this' point! Even small boy had deserted me and gone off to watch tv in the lounge. But I soldiered on and finally managed to get everything put back and sorted. It looked fantastic!! I was so pleased. I sent a picture message to lovely husband to show him my handiwork. He sent a text reply saying ' looks nice!' 'NICE' He now regrets that remark!! He did admit on his return home that the pictures really don't do it justice and it is as wonderful as I first thought. Wonderful man.

So now, I have a lovely area which hopefully won't get cluttered again. An aching back and aching wrists and am exhausted from a terrible nights sleep but it was worth it.

Here is my corner.

What do you think?

Peanut Butter Cake and a Har Hoo!!

Fathers Day seemed to go off without a hitch yesterday, the boys even fell asleep so that lovely husband could watch the Grand Prix. I seemed to spend most of the day cooking and washing up. By mid afternoon I realised that there wasn't a desert!! This would not do so decided to whip up some kind of cake. Now this was always going to be somewhat of a disaster as the electric oven in this house seems incapable of cooking a decent cake!!! I previously had a gas oven that made my cakes come out huge but not this one!! Alas, they are all somewhat flat and alot don't rise at all. But this did not deter me and the cake was made. Lovely husband wanted a bit of flavour so I decided to experiment and added a few large desert spoons of Peanut Butter to the mixture. It came out surpringly well, a little flat but not bad. I did overdo the buttercream though, with hindsight I would have left the top plain.

On Saturday, I also made another toy for small boy. He appears to have become quite fond of one of the Har Hoos from his favourite program, In the Night Garden. They seem to be large balloon like creatures that don't actually do anything but he liked one in particular. All seemed to be going well until I lost concentration and attached some of the petal like things the wrong way round. Lovely husband said he wouldn't notice but he did!!! Straight away. Not doing well am I, a tractor that should have had moveable wheels and a har hoo with the colours the wrong way round. Will I never learn!!!!

Happy Fathers Day and Misi Wanderings

I would like to wish a Happy Fathers Day to all of those dedicated dads out there!! Especially, lovely husband who we all couldn't manage without. Hoping for a sunny, stress free day!!!! fingers crossed.

I feel a little slack as I missed out doing any Misi Wanderings last week. But not today!! Here are a selection of lovely items that caught my attention from the talented people on Misi.

Misi Wanderings

Said the spider to the fly wrist warmers by my lovely friend Madam Salami. These are really gorgeous.
Antique gold and chocolate baby booties by funkyshapes. These look comfy.
Full English Breakfast by sorbet surprise. I love making things in felt.
Nautical Pencil Roll by sillyoldbear. What a wonderful idea, the bigger one is always losing his pencils.

I seem to have a fabric theme going on today! I do have a large collection of sewing mounted up to do later though, maybe on my mind! I created another toy yesterday, will post a pic soon. It was a harhoo from In the Night Garden for the small boy. I lost concentration and put two of the coloured petals the wrong way round, and he noticed, bless him!!! He still likes it though.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

A box of goodies for mum and a bracelet for me!

Its been quite a tiring week!

The bigger one has been doing his sat's at school, been a little bit poorly and very tired (crabby doesn't start to describe it. Bless him!). Alot of my twitter friends will also know that Small Boy has also been rather ill with something. It started with a recurring fever, which is actually still there. Then on Thursday he came out in a rash. I took him to the doctors but she wasn't sure what it was! (This was a little disappointing because I could have stayed at home with that knowledge) She thought that it may be chicken pox, but the rash didn't look right. Doesn't this mean that it probably isn't chicken pox then? Anyway, it turned out not to be as by the next day it had mostly faded. So he isn't spotty anymore but still has the odd temperature and has now started vomiting too!! Joy for me as I always get covered in it. But thats enough of that, hopefully both of my beautiful boys will make a speedy recovery and get back to normal soon.

On the jewellery front, I have also had a creative spurt. I have just posted a mixed box of goodies for my mum. She is currently experience alot of neck and shoulder pain so we thought we would try and sort it out. Luckily she is very receptive to healing stones so fingers crossed.

The main piece of jewellery is a necklace. This consists of Blue Lace Agate, Prehnite, Hawks Eye, Clear Quartz and Aquamarine, complemented with Aquamarine and Peridot Swarovski Crystals. I had a bit of a time with this one as none of my seed beads seemed to work. I ordered some new ones and when they arrived I completed the necklace. I used Ceylon Blue and Seafoam in the end. The strange thing was that the colour really seemed to matter. As soon as I added the blue seed beads it was like the power turning on. It seemed to radiate energy and appears desperate to be worn. I also made three pairs of earrings to go with the necklace and added a different bracelet and a beautiful tree brooch made by lovely husband. You can tell this by how precise it is, if I had made it I think it would have been rather random and bushy!! Isn't it lovely!

While I was at it I just had to make myself a Prehnite bracelet. I hadn't seen any before and it called to me. It is a beautiful stone.

It's almost the end of the month so don't forget to enter my June giveaway if you would like to win the malachite and crystal bracelet.

I've been tagged!!!!

Wow, wasn't expecting that!!! I've been tagged by the lovely Kitty at Magpie Moments. Its my first time so be nice!!

The rules of tagging are:

1. respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own (don't feel obliged as it's quite long already!)

2. Tag eight other people

What is your current obsession?
I have two!! One I get to do and the other I don't!! The one I manage to satisfy my obsession with is Twitter. Somewhat addicted to it at the moment. Sometimes I tell myself 'The whole world is ear-wigging into my conversations' but it still doesn't stop me making an idiot out of myself by tweeting to my username by accident!! Again and again and again!!!
The other thing I love at the moment is the Wii game Endless Ocean. I love it, so relaxing. I think there are two reasons why I like it. The music by Hayley Westenra is beautiful, and in real life I would never have the nerve to dive in the ocean like that and it actually feels real at times (yes, I know I'm sat on the sofa) but it still freaks me out when I go down into deep valley and enter the abyss!!!

What is your greatest achievement?
Well, predictable I suppose but it has to be my two beautiful children. They are and always will be my greatest achievement. I often look at them and think 'I made them'.

Coffee or Tea?
Hmmm! Well, I do like coffee, although people that know it is more like milk with a hint of coffee! My favourite has to be tea though. I don't function without a cup of tea in the morning. Milk and two sugars (or 3 sweetners) please.

What’s for dinner?
The recipe calls it Chicken Broth but I always add more rice which makes it into more of a risotto. Chicken, Rice, Stock, Onions, Turnips, Celery and Carrots. Yummy.

What have you just made?
I am just making a healing necklace for my mum. It is to help with neck and shoulder pain. I am using Blue Lace agate, Hawks Eye, Prehnite, Aquamarine and Quartz. I am accenting it with peridot and aqaumarine swarovski crystals. I will add a picture when it is done. :-)

What are you listening to right now?
The new Nickleback album Dark Horse. Loving it too. Although since I found a great download site where I can download tracks for 9c I'm re-buying all of my old vinyl stuff. Its great, I hear a song I like, I pop on and download it. Love it!

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Am I allowed to say 'all of them'!! No, OK then. Thats tough. Could be Caramalised Pecan. I'm totally nuts anyway so whats a bit more!

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
What a lovely lady, and funny too. A good sense of humour is so important don't you think. Helps us all keep going. And that felt brooch, a lady after my own heart!

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Ok, having a small boy who doesn't sleep at all and is rarely out of our bed, I am tempted to say 'back to bed' although that may just be because I am incredibly tired and it is really early!!! I may add lovely husband to that scene as aforementioned small boy makes an effective bolster between us!!! lol. Do I need to add........without the small boy. Although they would both need to be somewhere safe, see there I go again, over protective to the hilt!

Which language do you want to learn?
I learnt french and german at school, can't remember that much but the odd bit comes back. I like Spanish. I did try to learn it once but I am really shy when it comes to languages. I don't have the confidence to use them.

What’s your favorite quote (for now)?
I think I have two at the moment:

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist" by Friedrich Nietzsche

“He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.” Proverbs

What is your favorite colour?
Very dark red, just love it. I am currently very attracted to green though! Strange as I always hated it as a child. I used to leave all of the green sweets!

What is your dream job?
Definately the one have. I love making my jewellery and playing with all of the healing stones. I am totally addicted to them. I am determined to get my business off the ground so that I can continue to do it. :-)

Do you admire any one’s style?
Noone in particular all of the time. I often see someone on TV or in a picture and think they look really good and like the things that they are wearing but not consistantly. Annoyingly, I am not currently in 'my style'. I put on so much weight with the small boy that I can't fit into any of my normal clothes. That makes me very sad but hope to be able to get on the wii fit again soon to sort it out.

Describe your personal style?
Oops!! Should have seen that one coming! lol. Well, pre small boy, I could be found in Indian Skirts and embroidered tops. Stuff like that. Hopefully they may all come out again at some point!! I don't do groomed! I have long, mad, naturally curly hair that constantly makes me look like I've just got out of bed so groomed!!! no, never! lol

What are you going to do after this?
Did I mention my twitter obsession!! I will probably twitter about it! Also, watch the same episode of 'In the night garden' again and fend off flying toys. Usual stuff.

What is your favorite fruit?
I love grapes, especially black seedless ones, although a really crisp Empire apple at the beggining of their season is also heavenly. One of those I think. No, wait...... fresh pineapple. Ate two whole pots trying to bring on labour with the small boy. Got an incredibly sore mouth but it worked!! :-) Good tip if you need it.

What inspires you?
Hmm!! Music, colours, fresh air, nature and of course my family. They inspire me everyday and I am very thankful for them.

Your favorite book?
Oh no!!! I can't choose that! I love books, all books!!!! Always have.
I don't have a favourite book. I suppose one of my favourite authors is Katie Macallister. She is so funny. If you haven't read any you definately should. You'll laugh out loud and get all hot under the collar at the same time.

Your favourite film?
Definately 'Still Crazy'. I love the music and the actors and it has several of those lump in the throat moments. Well it did for me anyway!!

Do you collect something?
Like Kitty, I collect stones. As a small child this was something to be joked about but now I have a reason. It is my job!!! Of course, most of the stones I collect now are healing crystals but I still pocket the odd rock off the beach!! Sshhh!! Can't help it!

What is your favorite smell?

I want to say fresh bread, but that may be because I am hungry. Kitty does have a point though, a freshly showered lovely husband is hard to beat!! lol Also, the boys when they were babies, all powder and loveliness.

What are you most proud of?
My family, they are my life, all of them. Without them...... don't want to even think about it.

How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up?
If only!!!! I have a small boy who wakes me up at an unreasonable hour, have to force myself awake and get out of bed straight away. Years ago I used to sleep 13 hours a night, my memory was alot better then!!

Cats or dogs?
Hmm!! I've had both and they both have good and bad points. I think the cats were easier to manage though, the dogs were always a bit needy.

What’s your biggest fashion mistake?
Probably everything I wore in the 80's. Although I don't think I was alone in that. he he!

Complete the following:
Love is: the thing that makes everything worthwhile.

The heart that truly loves never forgets.

What would you like to make next?
Something fantastic that everyone wants.

What the best piece of advice you have been given?
There has been so much, hard to choose. A piece of advice from me is to always go with your gutt instinct. it is usually right.

Well, there you go, are any of you still awake???

I now have to choose eight people to tag! Hmmm, who shall I choose?
How about:

Charms of Light
Ruby Spirit Designs
Magic Making Hands
Funky Junk Jewellery
Soul Reader
Wisdom Path Art
Sharnemania Knits

Good luck guys.

Travis the Tractor is complete!!!

Some of you will know that this weeks project was a cuddly version of Travis the Tractor for the small boy. Hot on the heels of the bigger ones pink dinosaur, this was his request.

I didn't make a pattern as I wasn't really sure where to start, so I just winged it. What do you think. ( I wanted to get a better picture but small boy thought that he had waited long enough!)

I cut cut pieces of felt and pinned them together as I went along. I then used the sewing machine to sew the main body and then added the details by hand.

He seems to like it.

Chakra Cleansing Exercise

At the risk of being labelled completely 'woo woo', I thought I would share a simple Chakra Cleansing Exercise with you. This is a fantastic thing to do when you are lying in bed before you go to sleep.

Step 1 - Find a position that is comfortable and close your eyes.

Step 2 - The first thing to do is to 'ground' yourself. This is a wonderful technique that can be used at other times when you are feeling flightly or stressed. There are alot of different methods but I will mention the two that I often use. One is to imagine taps on your feet. Turn these taps on and allow all of the stress and tension to whoosh out of your body, don't panic if you feel your feet tingle, this is perfectly normal. The other method is to imagine roots coming out of your feet into the earth. (tingling again!) You then visualise a trunk growing up around your legs, growing into branches at your arms. Add leaves, sometimes wildlife and then work your way back down to the roots again. By now you should be feeling wonderfully relaxed.

Step 3 - Concentrate on the base of your spine and visualise a beautiful spinning red disc. Notice how bright it is and the direction that it is spinning in. Make it brighter. If it is spinning anti clockwise try to stop it and start it spinning in a clockwise direction. This can take some effort. this is your Base Chakra.

Step 4 - Next move on to the area around your Navel (Your Navel Chakra) This time, the disc is a beautiful bright orange. Again, make sure that it is spinning in a clockwise direction.

Step 5 - Next is the area in the centre of your torso (Your Sacral Chakra). The disc should be a beautiful golden yellow.

Step 6 - The next Chakra is the Heart Chakra. This one is lovely Emerald Green.

Step 7 - Now we have the Throat Chakra. A beautiful Light Sky Blue.

Step 8 - On the centre of your forehead is your Brow or Third Eye Chakra. A vibrant Indigo or dark blue.

Step 9 - The last of the major Chakras is the Crown Chakra. This one is often violet but can also be white.

Step 10 - Gradually work your way back down through the Chakras to your toes and repeat one of the grounding exercises to finish. You should now be beautifully relaxed and ready for sleep.

It is not unusual to have difficulty reaching some of the colours. This can indicate that the particular chakra is blocked and needs clearing. One way of helping with this is to wear a corresponding healing crystal or just to wear that partular colour.

I would love to hear if you find these exercises helpful.

Sleep well.

New style - I've gone chunky!

I made a new bracelet last night. It is alot chunkier than my normal pieces but I really like it. Very touchy feely! It has 36 inches of carnelian in it so its probably quite potent as well!! I complemented it with Fire Opal Swarovski Crystals. Can't decide whether they should have been a different colour?

Carnelian is such an under-rated stone, a real life changer. Some of you are probably fed up with me going on about it!! lol. I have made so much carnelian jewellery for people recently though, they all seem to need it. A lift if you are feeling tired, courage for when you are overwhelmed. Not forgetting that it is incredibly effective for arthritis. Yes, its very orange, but we all need a little bright colour in our lives.

Carnelian - SiO2+(Fe,O,OH)
In the middle ages, Carnelian was assigned a blood-staunching and anger-calming effect. The Egyptians also used it as a protective stone for the dead.
Mentally - Courage, Emotionally lifting, energizing.
Physically - works with: Organs. Stimulating the absorption of vitamins, nutrients and minerals in the small intestine. Alleviates rheumatism, arthritis and stimulates the metabolism.
Chakra - Base, Sacral.

Hayfever and Crystal Spider Web Necklaces

Is it me or is everything particularly hectic at the moment? I wouldn't mind but I don't actually seem to be getting much done!

I thought I would impart a quick hayfever tip as I have been advising alot of people about it recently and it is rather useful. Ladies, if you suffer from hayfever either wear some Amber jewellery or stick an Amber tumble stone in your bra. (Yes, I did say in your bra! It is a quick and useful place to keep them!) After an experiment on Twitter the other day with my friend Madam Salami we discovered that Tigers Eye is also quite affective.
I am determined to list more items on Misi this week. I have been very lazy and just not got around to it. I thought I would be incredibly early for Halloween and list at least one of my favourite Swarovski Crystal Cobweb Necklaces. I have made three now. The first was using Black Diamond Crystals and was absolutely gorgeous, I sold it last year though so that won't be going on. After the sale I then created one in Crystal AB and one in Siam Red.

I changed my method for the latest two. They are all made using a wire frame but for the first one I used loads of small pieces all joined together. This was very fiddly and I wasn't sure of the security. By the time I had made the Crystal AB version I had found a much better method. I used two or three different lengths of wire at the same time so that there were no joins just different wires going in different directions. The end result is still extremely stunning, it was a real experience. They are beautiful for adding extra sparkle to any Halloween outfit. (I know its only June but I like to be organised)

It's hard to get a good photograph of them but they are very beautiful. The spider pendat is pewter.
I made a Halloween range last year, look out for some reappearing in Misi!! lol My favourite is my blood drop bracelet. My favourite colour!!!
Anyway, feeling a bit daft talking about all of this stuff now so will save the rest for later in the year.

Busy little week!

Can't believe it's Sunday again!!.

Where has the week gone? Managed to get quite a bit done this week. Including having a lovely bar-b-que at mum and dads rained off yesterday! :-( Still had a lovely time though.

The lovely Zoe purchased a matching turquoise bracelet to go with the earrings she won. So pleased that she likes them. The carnelian earrings are also with their new owner hatsandmore. I wonder who will win the Malachite Bracelet?

A lady who I have made quite a few pieces for caught up with me at school on Friday. She said that she was desperate for an Amethyst Necklace. This was no problem but she then mentioned that she was really tired all the time. I asked her to pop into my house on her way home as I wasn't sure that it was really amethyst that she needed. (Yes, you've guessed it. I was think of my old friend Carnelian again) I asked her to take turns holding a string of amethyst and then a string of carnelian in her hand. Her reaction was immediate. "Definately Carnelian" she said, "I feel that I need it right now!" So after sending her off with an Amber tumblestone in her bra (yes, you read correctly) for her hayfever, I created a vibrant carnelian necklace which she was pleased to receive at school collection time. I was also thrilled to hear that she had also purchased some cheap store bought chip bracelets but had realised that they weren't anywhere near as potent as the ones that I make. She thinks it may be because I usually make them specifically for the person and could also be something that I channel into them. (Who knows, but if it works don't knock it! I certainly won't!)

Misi Wanderings time.
I had a bit of bother fitting them into a nice neat box this week so please forgive me the scrappy arrangement.

Knitted Gnome By RosyTint Isn't he fab, love his beard!
Moonlit Water By Vintage This is lovely, looks like it took alot of work.
Roses By Tinylittlepixie. I love Roses.
Framed Galaxy Abstract by Hotwaxart
Multi Strand Crystal Necklace by Herosandroses. Crocheted, can you believe it!

Well, bit of mixture there this week. Well done guys.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway for the malachite bracelet.

A spot of snail watching and the pink dinosaur!

Hi All,

A few family bits and bobs today. Isn't the weather glorious at the moment, long may it continue. we actually got the paddling pool out for the kids, not sure it came out at all last year.
The other day, the smaller one noticed something through the window blinds in the lounge that caught his attention. On closer inspection, we noticed that there was a large snail sliding its way down the window. Quite bazaar! Anyway, I pulled up the blind and it kept him occupied for quite a while until it made it off the window. Can you see it?

As I mentioned in my last blog, I have been creating a pink dinosaur for the bigger one. Well, I finished it yesterday and he loves it. It is supposed to be a likeness for Ruby the Oviraptor from The Land Before time. (Still think it looks like an osterich!)
