Domain name

I have a domain name -
Fingers crossed I will be live next week.
I would have to say creating a website is such hard work, with taking photos, descriptions, pricing and then there is finding a name for the necklace. I think everyone will enjoy the website....I hope so :)

Auckland Holiday

It is amazing to think that we are half way through the year - where has the year gone. We, being my daughters and I enjoyed a relaxing holiday in Auckland that involved much shopping and of course 'Bead shopping'. Of course it goes without saying that I blew my budget but I did manage to obtain some true beauties. :) We also visited Kelly Tarltons and the Auckland Museum. The museum was absolutely amazing with 3 floors of so much information, history and general knowledge. Miss 9 wasn't feeling the best, so we only saw 2 floors. Next time I will go childless and wonder by myself all day :)

First Craft fair

Last weekend was my first experience of attending a craft fair. I sold a few pieces and received many compliments on my work. This was nice to hear compliments first hand. I was working on my first attempt at a sewn cuff bracelet. I have finally finished the bracelet and am now working on a pendant. I think this might be my first wedding piece....what do you think???
