So here I am with my cousin on her birthday. She is a very creative lady herself and I admired her cusion covers and the chairs she had recovered.
There was also a reminder that actually we used to make jewellery when we were little. Visit the bead shop and string our selections on to elastic. Funny how you forget stuff like that.
Lucky for me a new bead shop had opened in Seaford so I bought some lovely dyed pearls amongst other things!
What a fab weekend ending with a snuggle up on the sofa with my lovely boyfriend.

I can't believe it is nearly the weekend already. I'm looking forward to seeing my cousin as it is her birthday and she's having a party in her new flat. Woo!
So creation stations are stopping for the weekend, I've made a couple of new pieces this week of which I'm especially proud of my green bead weave as it was me experimenting.
Maybe it turned out so well as I'm having a witchy week - I've got bright green streaks in my hair now and went to see Harry Potter on Weds. I was told by a man at work that I resembled the "orange Wednesday witch"! "I don't like to go to the cinema on my own!" I thought that was funny. I'll try get a picture of my witchyness!
Have a great weekend.

So the shop is up and running - it takes more work than I expected (nieve I guess), I'm a 1 stop shop - I forgot that if I sold stuff I needed suitable packing! And to my delight I have sold a few pieces and Lara and I keep joking about our international stardom! LOL! x

I like many am a list writer (hands up all of those who are with me!), I write to do lists several times a week, shopping lists, what to pack when I go away lists, they help, honest, I think without them my life would be even more chaos. The point I'm getting to is this week like any other began with a list and I'm doing pretty well.... I've designed and made some more jewellery, done lots of chores and seen all the people I was suppose to. I also decided it was about time I put a gallery together of all my designs. Above is Goldstone Glisten one of the pieces I made this week. I just love purple and orange together.
I found trying to understand the world of taking a good picture to be a challenge. My conclusion is the natural light is better but if the weather is rubbish make do with a photo editing tool (As seen above - this pic was darker)!

I am lucky enough to have an Aunt and Uncle that live in Spain. With cheap flights available I thought it was about time I made a visit. So hence the absence!
I ate soo much lovely Spanish cusine which made me question why so many tourists search for classic Brit dishes when on holiday???? This puzzles me.
Churras with chocolate!!! UUUMMMM!
I visited La Mata salt lake - this is a protected Ramsar wetland and we saw treats like the Montagu harrier, flamingoes, avocets and black winged stilts - I wanted to see eared grebes but as it was about 40 degrees we couldn't spend long birding or we would have melted! Definate unexpected treat though. Thank you Auntie!
