Apart from changing the design, what felt like, 10 million times; I am happy with the final result. I already have a couple of members. woo hoo :)

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???

Mum's Mothers day bracelet

At the moment I am creating Mums mothers day bracelet...bit late I know but she arrives on Monday for a week with us. Its taken this long to think of what I could do ;) A few years ago she made pearl necklaces using pearl set in shells. Recently I found a fish tail design and decided to peyote stitch around it so its all protected and this will be the centre piece for the bracelet. I just need to find 5 beads that symbolise her 5 grandchildren, so far I have 2 :)

Created a website

Wow I have been busy. Still yet to do any study but I have managed to create my own website to help get my products out there :) Thanks to Amanda from Pallina Designs who recommended for website making.

It's a beautiful day in Gisborne and apparently the last for a few days :( So I should really go and hang out my washing and clean my house a bit in preparation for the rainy weather.
