Thanks guys !

100 followers woo hoo ! thanks guys xxx

Time for a deep breath ...

I thought I would tell you what I have planned for the next year at least (this may explain my lack in posts recently as I have been busy doing this)... this week I am leaving my current job at the bank for a career break ! (deep breath) I have decided that I need to really go for it and as having a full time job is hindering my ability to make lots of items and actively keep up with sales, promoting myself and making a proper business out of 'Little Miss Crafty'.
So I feel the time is now, have a really good bash at it and see what happens, I have had lots of interest in my new ranges of stuff which I will post here in the next couple of days and due to the fact that I work in a big Jewellery area I have had lots of customers trying to give me advice and help which has been really nice.

Well it is very scary and very exciting at the same time... I just hope I can promote and sell enough stuff to make it work so I don't have to go back to the bank !!

Here are some wooden bangles I have made with my new designs, colourful and bright with some embellishments they are statement pieces so stand out all on their own and they always attract compliments.

I also have some pics here of a Valentine's swap (yes I did say Valentines swap as in february) that I did with Jennifer Chapin who has a great blog you should check out.. these are the lovely things she sent me..thanks Jen x

Just before bed...

...I know it's been ages since my last post ( sorry Chinnamommy) but I have been sooooo busy with lots of different stuff going on that I am really excited about and will tell you about next week, hopefully tomorrow but just before I hit the sack I am going to show you the magazine I'm in this month called 'Making Jewellery', I'm on pages 44-45 with my fabric necklace project and on the front cover and inside first page bio...oooh he he he excited !!! love this layout...ok off to bed see you peeps tomorrow xxx

p.s this is my favourite quote at the moment and sums me up a little bit ;)

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
