A quieter week...

Posted on


Have had a chance to breathe this week...  (the steroids and antibiotics did their jobs) and it's actually been a pretty quiet one to be honest.

Oh...Apart from receiving this special lady... fairie  fairie.  Isn't she just beautiful??  She's completely handmade from polymer clay by Rita of One of a Kind Sculpture - Fantasy Art ..... do pop along and visit Rita's website    Each doll is unique and made from scratch!  Rita helps a Breast Cancer Fund by donating some of the proceeds from the sale of each doll to the charity!  Rita only wanted £10 for her, and invoiced me as much despite me saying I wanted to pay £15 (which I still think is a bargain!!)  I had to send an extra £5 in the end as a stand alone payment to make sure she got the extra money for her fund!  She doesn't yet have a name though.

   Am brimming with ideas at the mo....and as it's half terpink cord braceletm I am hoping that I'll get loads of them made into jewellery before next week, that's   the plan anyway!  Have made a little cotton cord and sterling silver bracelet that I plan to replicate in many colours for the Spring Fayre that I have coming up at the end of March.  I think I took too much of my higher end bits to it last year and it was a bit of a disaster.  Will be taking more day to day pieces this time :). 




Finally - I am doing a couple of giveaways.  First, to win this Past, Present & Future Friendship Bracelet  just sign up for the Lilac Dragonfly newsletter (one a month...definitely no spam....Guaranteed) by 30th March and 1 winner will be picked at random from all subscribers.

Second, I will giveaway these earrings to one lucky winner when my Facebook Page reaches 1000 likes! :)

So that's me again for this week...will hopefully have oodles to show you next week.... !!  I shall now head on over to Handmade Monday for my weekly craft blog fix.

Bye for now
