Oh My..... Where has the time gone....

I have been a really neglectful beader this year and it is bothering me!

I started work on a casual basis in the 2nd week of January this year. Nearly 12 weeks later I was offered the role of Assistant Manager. I had just got used to the hard yakka involved in 20-30 hours per week of working in a Petshop, only to go and increase my hours to over 40 per week!

Not only was it a culture shock, but my body has not done so well by me- I am tired all the time. I have also GAINED 4kgs since commencng this job! I throw bags of dog and cat food and bird seed around weighing from 8kgs all the way up to 25kgs! I should be losing weight!

So I get home at about 6:20pm at night and by 8:30pm I am crawling into bed and crashing for the night.

The only good thing so far is that I do not suffer from insomnia anymore LOL

Actually I shouldn't say only thing. I love my job, I really do. I am just dying for the day that my body learns to cope with it :)

Hopefully, I will have some things to show you soon :)

Latest Use the Muse project...Sneak Peak!

I received my kit, took one look at the beads and went "oh crap"! This kit is definately not my colours. It contains Tiger Eye, which I loathe...... and the muse just doesn't seem to want to talk at the moment.

I do however have a vague idea of what I want to do, I just don't know if it will work given that I know of one Muse that broke.....

Anyway, here is a piccy of the little I have done and the beads I have to work with (not the Muse though, because that is against the rules).

As yet un-named- but it is FINISHED!

Finally, I can tick off another UFO...

I beaded the cabochon probably close to 18 months ago, then didn't know how to finish it. After rediscovering the Cellini Spiral, I decided that it was perfectly suited to the cab.

The question then was, how to attach the spiral to the cab????

I worked through some ideas and came up with this.

My list of UFO's is getting shorter....

I have worked my backside off these past few days thanks to a new group on Facebook:

So far I have completed these two cuffs:

Triangle Earrings

I bought a tutorial off Sabine Lippert here: and used the triangle pattern to make these earrings for my sister>

I then made these grey earrings and whilst over for Christmas dinner, my stepmother snagged them.

These are such fun little gifts to make and quick too!
