Oh sunny days, isn't spring wonderful!

I'm sitting here in my NEW office/workspace (lucky me) feeling incredibly guilty as I've hardly made any jewellery this month. Just as well I've been building up my stocks over winter!

So, what have I been doing instead of slaving away in my studio you ask,  buying furniture for my new office space and spending sleepless nights putting the jolly stuff together. I'm an IKEA expert now!
It's also spring and the gardening and nesting fever has struck. The veggie patch has been dug and manured and the first green bean seedlings have been planted, the fruit trees are blossoming and many flower seeds have been planted. Herman( sweet dog) has been kind to help by digging newly planted flower seedlings up for me. If he wasn't so gorgeous..grrrrrrr

I did manage to design a few new pairs of earrings, some asymmetrical pairs and I'm really happy with them.

Art wise I have been playing at night whilst curled up on the couch with my water soluble crayons ( a birthday present I hadn't got around to using) and layering and scratching back to see the effects.This is so addictive and great fun. I have to force myself to stop and go to bed. I've also included a couple of pics of the paintings I did.

Life is great!

Bookmarks are ready!

Ok, so I spent all day taking photo's and writing descriptions about these cutest of cute Bad Kitty Art bookmarks to list them in my Etsy shop.
Wow it takes AGES to do everything and I did pick a rainy day to take photo's so.... no nice natural light pics which means I had to ajust each photo too!
Check out my Etsy shop and see how cute these guys are.
Anyhoo...all done and dusted now and  the next step is to make my cards.
