Well I have to say I haven't had a very crafty week been running around all over the place what with commitee meetings orthadontist appointments and visiting a few people its been very hectic.
My lovely middle daughter went back off to College today after 4 months of working on a ship up in Scotland so we have been busy packing and shopping for last minute essentails, boy can that girl shop!!!!!!!
My eldest is 20 tomorrow so its the last day of having three teenage daughters around it lasted 10 days as the youngest turned 13 on the 4th May. Feels very strange knowing shes not a teenager any more and makes me feel ancient. Funny also how shes dreading it and shes still so young, feels only like yesterday that she was crawling about the floor with no real voice, now shes off travelling the world and could talk the hind legs off of a donkey!!!!!
Well back to the crafting mode don't forget to pop over to Wendys blog on Handmade Harbour This is a new page full of lots of ideas Wendy has made it very interesting with guest blogging and featured crafters you can leave your link and hopefully get lots of visitors to your own blog too. If you do pop over dont forget to write a little something as it makes our days to read lovely comments.
I have been visiting a place called the Hexagon centre this is where I help the clients with their beading, I have been making magnetic bracelets with them which they love as they are just simple beading tecniques
Here are a few pictures of the sort of thing we made
I also have been sorting out some workshops for my encaustic art I arranged them in 5 week courses and sent out the emails I am charging £70 for a 5 week course this is learning different tecniques with the iron to produce some lovely pictures. I am still awaiting replies but I'm wondering now whether maybe I should have chosen just morning or afternoon short workshops I suppose time will tell if you have ever run workshops I would appreciate any comments or opinions you have as this is my 1st time
Here are a few pictures of my work
These are the sort of thing that you can produce from painting with wax and of course no two pictures will ever be the same
Look forward to any comments you may have. Have a great week xxxx
