Acrylics, Pearls, Metals


Acrylics, pearls, metals and stamps just look so good together don't they?? These are made using the designs in the Polymer Pizzazz book.

Saturn beads

  







I call these my Saturn beads and I'm sure I don't need to tell you why. 


Made up as a necklace.

Comment Moderation

Although most of the comments I get are genuine and lovely, I am having some problems with getting links to porn sites. Therefore, I am now using comment moderation to deter those nasty comments.


Thanks to all who have left great comments!


One good thing though is that in setting up comment moderation, I realised I was on an old post editor. So I have updated and hopefully this will prevent the problems I've been having with formatting my posts.

The Diva strikes again...





Oh boy, I am such a Diva! I have just spent the past few days trying to take the best new kitchen shots I could, and none were good enough...



...so these will have to do!







Firstly, I should explain my obsession with getting a new kitchen. I had been putting up with this teeny, tiny and mismatched one for over 5 years now. The door on the right opened inwards which took even more space out of the room.

The next photo shows the same angle but with the kitchen extended, a new door and window that overlooks the garden and with new units (cupboards etc).






The photo doesn't do it justice!

The cats really like the new kitchen with its easy access to the garden. That's Shadow heading out for a stroll.









More direct garden view














I now have bookshelves for my cookbooks!!

For anyone who is vegan and/or suffering from a gluten intollerance, I fully recommend the Flying Apron's Gluten Free and Vegan Baking book which is the one on the bottom left. Absolutely delish baking recipes!

More bookshelves but also the first new wall casualty when I tried to tap in a nail to hang something. D'oh!










A bigger view of those units.















View from the garden.

Shadow is doing "coy" there peeping out from the units on the left.











And the best part....

my clay oven has a home. Hurrah!
