A creativity flare brings new projects – and products!

It’s a wonderful feeling to be getting creative again! That means I pulled out my old beading tools… it has been a while indeed!

I find myself with a lot of time on my hands these days to heal and reflect, which is bittersweet as I’m often not one to have a lot of time on my hands on account of I like being busy. Call me a creature of habit, but I did just that – got myself busy.

That means I’ve finally got something to show you after months and months of silence! Oh how fickle life can be. Anyways, there’s a bonus this time… I’ve decided to actually sell some of my creations! Yep, every thing I’m showing off in this post: I made it and I’m selling it in my brand new Etsy store!

Enough of that, here’s the juicy bits: click on the pic to see the listing on Etsy.

I fell in love with these blue glass crystals and had to make something a bit fancy with them and some Swarovski crystals I already had…

And then was obliged to make some coordinating earrings:

I realised I hadn’t made much using gold yet, so I gave it a go and was quite pleased:

And this one I just wanted some matchy-matchy fun with copper findings and the copper sparkle in the glass beads. I made matching earrings for this one too! I will list those soon…

Then I got stuck into the feathers. But the feathers, thankfully,Β did not get stuck on me.

And lastly I made a gorgeous hair barrette from some New Zealand paua seashells I bought on our holiday there some time ago:

So after all this time, I’ve finally made a crafty post instead of just talking about it! How does it feel? Feels like I’m needing to write quite a few more… but first, a nap! Like my cats.

Yeah, I still got it. Stay happy!

My handmade store’s humble beginnings started in my much loved yard in the sun. With no office job at the moment, I needed something to keep me happy and crafting has always been it! Miss dreamed up one of my favourite first designs while having a nap…
