Happy Birthday to me!!!

It isn't quite my birthday just yet, but I do turn 30 on Sunday, so today I thought I would treat myself, and make myself a pendant. I was given some lovely turquoise chips as part of a christmas present last year, from my friend Liz, and as they were a gift I wanted to use them to make something for me. So I have mixed the chips up with a couple of my own Cleo polymer art beads, a couple of tigers eye beads and some Swarovski Elements. I think it looks awesome! :)

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

Well not quite, but at least the one thing better than sliced bread, your own home baked, unsliced bread. Boyfriend and I spent Saturday evening baking bread (which is more rock 'n' roll than you would think), and then we spent a good part of Sunday eating bread. We decided we would start with simple white loaves and rolls (and some cheesy breadsticks that never got to see Sunday - yum), but next time we are planning on being a little more adventurous...

Birthday Treats!

It is not my birthday just yet, but due to other various commitments over my actual birthday, I spent the weekend seeing my family and friends. Came away with a couple of helium balloons, presents to open on the day, and birthday cake - yum yum!

I spent Saturday evening with a couple of my closest mates, the lovely Gayley had made lots of delicious curry dishes for us to gorge on, she had worked so hard, it was like going to a restaurant! She had also made plates of yummy cupcakes, she really is a talented lady :)

As it will be my 30th, and they wanted to make it special, Gayle, Lyds, and Liz clubbed together to get me a gorgeous Friendship Bracelet from Links. I love it, it is very me, perfect colours and style, I just hope I don't do something dopey like lose it, or get clay in it, I'm not sure I should be trusted with such pretty, lovely, sparkly things - I won't be taking it off though :)

They also bought me a date with them at the Pudding Club in the Cotswolds, I can't wait, I get to gorge on pudding, who could ask for more, it sounds like heaven :) It will be a lovely girly evening :)

Congratulations on your Weddin...ahem...belated first Anniversary

It feels like I have abandoned this poor blog, I just don't seemed to get round to it at the minute, I even missed out on Folksy Friday last week, even though I had planned what to do :).

I have been making and planning, and as always desperately trying to get myself organised. I have started makes for christmas, ordered materials for cards, and tried to organise my stock.

More importantly I have finally got a wedding present sorted for my friend Rachel - it should probably be noted that she celebrated her first anniversary one month ago :). It should be in the post today, I had trouble trying to package everything, resorting to making my own box for some things, I hope she likes it :)
