Sneak portion-peaks of recent makes

Now I’ve had my sick day, which meant no making, or anything else for that matter. I am back, and raring to go.
Here are a few sneak portion pics of my recent makes and one under construction.

Once I’m done with the last one, and get the good photos done, they will be shown in their full glory, and uploaded to the website and Facebook page.

New makes and funky buttons

A couple to new things I’ve made last night and this afternoon.

I’m not sure if the beaded link on the brown focal is too much. I’m tossing up between silver wire (good) and more ribbon (too much maybe?) and maybe even leather or twine and knotted.

I like this green one, a revamped necklace, altered slightly to account for the difference in hanging.

One I am working on. Restringing the lapis chips onto 3 strands and attaching to the spider web focal. I’ll find a neat link for the other side. It will be finished with chain or ribbon, as I’m not sure if I still have a blue to match or contrast with these beads.

And some funky buttons (mum had in her show bag from a recent conference). I am already thinking of what to use them with.

Have fun crafters 🙂

New blog design

I think I have finally done it. I have tried so many different themes over the last week, activated and then played with them. Some lasted minutes, others longer.

While browsing all those gorgeous themes, this is the one that I came back to more than once. I like it as the photo column is a set feature. I wanted to have photos featured on the front page, visible straight up to visitors, and with this theme I don’t need to add any codes or hassle with any bits I don’t understand. Pictures just arrive as they are posted.

The colouring is all I seem to be having difficulty with. I like brights, but the title colour won’t do what I want. Ah well, small problems. I’ll work around it somehow.

I hope you like the new look and if you know of another theme that would look equally as good or better – and supports a picture gallery as standard and is free – or think i could change something, please let me know.

Now that I’ve done this – and wasted lots of time – I have to upload a few more items to my website and get ready for the market this weekend. I have a few plans I need to ask our manager for adding into the blog.

Have a great week 🙂
