Maths + Science + art/craft = The reef project

Our town is participating in a global project in creating one of many Hyperbolic crochet coral reefs. It will be on display for February and March in our local museum.
You can read all about the Crochet Coral Reef Project

These are my contribution to the project - the finished reef should look fabulous when all the creations are put together.

Fit for a Princess

How gorgeous is this necklace.
Features a beautiful Swarovski Crystal shaped like a teardrop. It is surrounded by white freshwater pearls to provide a mysterious treasure fit for a princess.
Mandy at Beadsme has created this beauty and many more in her etsy store.
She also creates wonderful glass jewellery in her RadicalGlass store - check it out.


Not your normal library trip..

Today we went to the library, and I was a little distracted by the BOOK SALE sign. My girls went to browse for books to borrow, and I did a frantic scurry through all the magazines for sale.
I came away with quite a cool selection of Mojo, Vogue, Collectors, Vita, Handmade...just to name a few.

New Year needs New Ideas...

With a head full of ideas, it is time to start putting them into action.
This is the first cast of a new bangle design I have done.
There will be more coming in the next few months.
This style is yet to be given a name!
If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.

This is mental!!!!!!

For more Info CLICK HERE
Kylie from Tiges and Weince is having a baby and she needs to clear some room. So she is prepared to sell off her entire range of Maybel clothing at the crazy price of $5 per item...
You just have to check it out. I have bought off her many times in the past as she has the most comfy basics around. I am talking myself into buying some more really, I have enough but you can get your hands on some great Aussie clothing at an amazing price.

Hearts for Haiti

Etsy shops are uniting to help the people of Haiti recover from the devastating earthquake of January 12th, 2010.
I have donated this
100% of sales will go directly to those in need.
Hopefully the sale of this Spoon pendant will help to feed the hungry.

Sweet comic valentine

Find of the Day

Just wanted to share with you my purchase of the day. I scored this torso at my local craft shops closing down sale - Wasn't too sure about her raunchy lacy corset which is stuck on but it is growing on me. I think I could remove it with a bit of force if I wanted to redress her.
So here she is modelling some spoon pendants.
I am going to call her Roxy

This is not the last you have seen of Roxy

Happy New Year World

By now you would have all hopefully recovered from the Christmas and New Year Celebrations and be ready to tackle all those New Years Resolutions!!! Right??
I thought it would be a good idea to write some of those resolutions down so that next year I can look back on this and see just how I went...
1. Get my crafting room a little more organised (try to claim a bit more of it for myself as it is shared with everybody elses crap)
2. Make some new jewellery designz
3. Clean out my wardrobe
4. Tackle some new markets
5. Try as many new crafts as I can, within reason, without going into a frazzled state.
6. Find some decent comfy short stetchy skirts!!

Well I think they are all reasonable requests of myself...
I am already working on number 2 so that is a good start!
Happy New Year and have fun.

Oh and don't forget my Zibbet store is having a huge sale - I want to clear all of the resin bangles to make way for new ones - great bargains to be had.
