All 'Princessed' Out!

I have just spent the last few days making the little plaques for children that I used to enjoy creating :) I have now created about 100 of them - and now I never want to see another Disney Princess again in my life! lol
Still, if they sell at the next fete, it will all be worth it :)
Out all day tomorrow.. it was supposed to be a crafting day, but somehow think that me and my friends will end up just doing nothing (except gossiping and chatting - no mention of Disney Princesses allowed!).

Still Crafting...

It's been over a year since I blogged here - but I do blog other places too :)
So much has happened - but I'll condense it down...
Miss Violet had kittens.
Miss Violet got run over and died.
I got another cat called Kitty-Belle.
Lily-dog got old and ill,  and had to be put to sleep.
I got another dog - Yorkie called Barkley McScruffles.
Kitty-Belle had kittens.
I became a millionaire selling my crafting and jewellery items.
That last statement was not true :)
I've actually spent all day crafting and getting ready for a fete in July - I am making door plaques, pirate chests, "I'm Bored!!!" jars, jewellery... loads of items :)
Here's a few I made or finished today:

The pirate chests now have little diamante gems on the middle finger of the skeletal hands... and I so wish a photo could capture how adorable the door signs are - lots of decoupage, googly-eyes, glitter, and 3-D bits and pieces.
As I am doing a lot of fetes and fairs through until December, I thought I would amalgamate Patchwork Apples with my Elandesse business... making jewellery and craft items for children (as well as jewellery for dogs - really! lol)
I am going to save the hand-crafted more exclusive jewellery designs for jewellery parties and Etsy :)
I shall now spend the next three hours poking my nose around blogland :)
