Crazy Wire and Other Lovely Bits

Today my Crazy Wire Company order arrived! It was very exciting! 10 metres of 15 different colour wire, a skein of recycled Sari threads some coloured tigertail and some ribbon crimps!

 All my goodies including the Sari threads...aren't they just gorgeous colours?

All the lovely wire. I can't wait to get playing with them too!

It didn't take me long as my friend Maria predicted to get in a tangle (with the sari threads though not wire as she predicted...thanks Maria) but having got myself untangled I then had to get started making something fabulous with them! And here are the results... ok result as I have only made one thing. The threads are about 1mm thick so need beads with large holes and the only beads I had were pandora style beads but I do think it looks pretty and unusual and know I will have to go shopping for some more pandora or large hole beads!

Sadly my puppy managed to get hold of some of the threads this morning! I was very careful, honest and was sure I had taken it all upstairs but one bit managed to escape and so I think I should make myself something lovely with it as it is still very useable but I obviously can't sell it! I do always try to make things for myself as I see it as free advertising! So something pretty with Sari threads that I can have fun making and wearing to look forward to!

So what do you think? Do stop by and let me know! And I will put all my new designs on here when they're done!

Autumn at Folksy

Time to do a feature pointing you to my Folksy shop so here are some lovely items available on Folksy! As we have just entered autumn I have decided this should be my theme.

This beautiful bracelet is by Lonely Hearts

I'm currently doing a photgraphy project with a friend which you can see here. So I had to choose a photo. This one is 'Dusk in the Autumn' by Dave Amis Creative Digital Photography

 Isn't this pretty? It's a hair clip by Crown and Glory. I do love pretty hair clips but I'm not sure my hair is thick enough to carry it off!

This cushion is lovely! It really has all the glorious colours of Autumn! It's made by Sewflair

A gorgeous Hand crocheted Poncho! Perfect for those Autumn days when It's not cold enough for your winter coat but you need something just to ward off the chill!
Handmade by Candy Floss

I love this beautiful pendant especially the leaf! And I especially love the artists name ... The Whimsical Wren

I need a new notebook just to jot down things as I think of them so I don't forget which is what I do now! This is handmade by Crafted

I had to include this!! How cute is this sweet Autumn Fairy outfit? And doesn't the little model look like she is loving it too? Handmade by Ella Bella Fairy ... another great name!

And finally...

 With this gorgeous sun catcher you can make the most of the autumn sun! Handmade by Dormouse Studio

I hope you have enjoyed my picks and will pop by and visit these very talented artists! I am waiting for an order of wire and threads so look out for my own autumn creations coming soon!
