Number Ten of 2012 - Jolene of KitzBitz Art Glass

That's how I would describe Jolene's work. Utterly nommable and gorgeous.

Jo is a lampworker and a bit of a dabbler in polymer clay. Glass is her main focus though and boy, am I glad about this because I love seeing new beads come up on her facebook page. Each bead makes me go ooooOOOoooOOOh! Quite literally.

I was luckily enough to receive some of her beads from my boyfriend for my birthday and I just can't stop looking at them.

Jolene is very lovely and hardworking. Apart from making all these delicious beads, she is also the main woman of the wonderful Craft Pimp forum having set it up just over a year ago and working very hard to make it the successful and brilliant forum that it is (I think I may be a tad biased, but I'm telling the truth, promise!).

All I can say is she better keep on making all these wonderful beadies because she'll have me to deal with if she stops, teehee! She is has a really good eye for colour and pattern and I shall leave you now with a few of my favourites from Jo's range of beads :)

And here is where you can find all the loveliness:

I was also a complete plonker and forgot to mention that Jolene also sells a bunch of glass supplies for all you lampworkers and glassy people out there. This is the link to follow if you're looking for some fun supplies:

New post soon with some funky new things from me :D
Have a good few days :) xx

Post Nine! - Mel of InkyDoodleCrafts

Hey peeps!
Been a bit of a long gap between posts again, apologies!
This week I am blogging about another fellow Craft Pimp-er, Mel, a greetings card creator :)

I've just been having a plod round her online hideouts and found a few cards that appealed to me because I can relate to them at the moment:This one touched me because I am almost at the 'pre-exam-panic!' Exams start in a little over a month and I think I need one of these cards to give me that extra boost! I really love the colour scheme of this card as well :)

This next card is a 'Thank you for being bridesmaid' card. I haven't been bridesmaid yet, but will be in July so my thoughts are quite weddingy at the mo. Mel has a range of thank you cards along the same lines as this, for example, a Page Boy thank you card.
And this last one I am going to share with you is purple because I love the dinosaur! Everyone needs a dinosaur greetings card in their life! And everyone needs a dinosaur costume... I'm not quite sure why but it'd be fun to be a scary grr t-rex for a day, teehee! I am however incredibly sleepy now. It's been a lovely day of pampering my mum for Mother's Day and also some t-shirt altering has been done using my sewing machine for the first time! Lotsa fun :) Though I do tend to get in a right tangle.
So as I am off to sleep I shall leave you with all the places on the tinternet that you can find InkyDoodleCrafts and the lovely Mel :)

8th post of 2012

Just a quick post really.

Been working on some new bits over the last couple of days. Very colourful, very fun and also practical as they are buttons! Made about 9 sets so far and they're pretty funky :) I'll put up photos once they're baked and varnished.

Also just bought another few blocks of clay so that'll be even more fun :D

AND I just got my sewing machine thready stuff through the post so I can hopefully have a play with that sometime soon. Could be interesting as sewing machines tend to blow up when I'm anywhere near them :P

Post No. 7 - Laney of IzzyBeads

Hey peeps!
This is the first post of the new blog ring I am in - essentially I will be writing about a bunch of crafty peeps over the next few weeks. There will be a variety of crafts being talked about and the Lovely Laney is the first to be featured.

Now, where do I begin?
Laney works with glass, she makes really cute beads, is an animal lover and she is also slightly mad :P Mad but loveable and the CraftPimp Forum wouldn't be the same without her about!

I do love her quirky beads, they're just wonderful to look at and she is brilliantly creative with what she does and brings cuteness and humour into her work. You really need to go and look at where you can find her work, I definitely recommend doing just that! You can find the links underneath the photos I've included of my personal favourites of Laney's work :)

These photos all come from Laney's Etsy shop.

And here are the links:

and her eBay shop :)
Go enjoy!

Have a good week everyone!

Ooh, P.S, just a quick bit about me - we picked out my bridesmaid dress this weekend for my boyfriend's sister's wedding! It's goooooorgeous :D And have enormously high heels (also gorgeous!) to wear with it :D
