My "flood" pictures

 It looked like a river outside my front door.

 The water came through this roof AND the windows and door!

 The water here is about 6" deep

Pictures of the water in my house!

I have run out of towels to mop it up!!!

However I know this is nothing compared to what some people have gone through. I feel for all of you.

Jewellery for her Ruby Anniversary

My Uncle got in touch with me and asked if I could make a Ruby faceted necklace for his wife
 He wanted it about 7' long so she could wrap it aroung about 3 times
 This is what I made. I also made 2 pairs of earrings and put it into a silver box.
I really hope they both like it.

Jewellery workshop

Yesterday I had my first jewellery workshop. Originally I had expected about 6 to attend. In the end there were just 2., but that didn't matter. We had a great time. My ladies really enjoyed it, in fact more than I thought they would. They already attend my card classes.

The workshop included a Starter Kit which has the most beautiful quality glass pearls.

I showed them the basics with some other beads and the let them loose on their kits . Below are pictures of what they made.

The clear faceted beads catch the light and glisten beautifully.

They were very happy with their makes.

I will post some of my makes later

dont get too wet! (if you live in England)

 Happy wet Saturday!!! What has happened to Summer. Looking in the bright side what perfect weather to say we have to stay in and Craft!!!

And just to rub it in a bit more our challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week is..............................

Heathers Hobbie Haven is our sponsor this week.

Instead of a card this week I have made a Suitcase! I used this great Sizzix die and covered it with leatherette style papers and added a Tag "U.S.A" (they have the greatest craft shops there....only thing is my suitcase is way to small to bring back any goodies!)

Keep dry

Mabel Lucie Atwell

 Here is a card using one of the Mabel Lucie Atwell images.
I have tried to keep this looking old fashioned in line with the stamps themselves.

Just a very basic card
