Well that is another month gone, and another giveaway has come to an end. I popped all the entrants names into and picked a winner for the May Giveaway over on OTTBS blog and i would like to say a huge thank you to all the entrants.
You can find all the info here
Congratulations to Tammy Norton on winning the Inspiration Travel Tin.

I shall be busy this week listing more beady inspiration travel tins in my Etsy Shop. There will be a few of each to start, until i have a chance to make up different selections.

So far this week i have designed a new pattern which will also be available in my Etsy Shop once i have finished writing up the instructions and taking pictures.

Here is a sneaky peek in the form of a bracelet.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Happy Beading

Playing Around

Yesterday I was playing around with a stitch called 'Craw' Cubic right angled weave. While I was busy making a strip of bumpy bubblicious craw I started thinking what would happen if I did this??? Hmmm then the beads started taking a different shape, and the design ended up looking totally different.

I guess the moral of my story is... Unless you take a different thread path, you will never know what you will be capable of.

I will be making a tutorial on how to make my bubblicious craw pendant soon, so watch this space ;)

Happy Beading
