Time for a clear out!!!!

Sitting around unable to do much since I came out of hospital, I have suddenly realised just how much craft stuff that I have! Nearly every drawer is stuffed full of beads; paper; card blanks; jewellery findings; etc,etc,etc!!!

So its time for a clear out! I need the space - desperately!!!

So I have opened another store on Folksy and am slowly filling it with craft items! If you do anything "crafty" then why not pop over and have a look - I will combine postage for multiple purchases and even throw in some extra's if you mention the blog!! (See how desperate I am to get rid of the stuff!!!)

There are all sorts of jewellery charms; paper serviettes for decoupage; orphan beads; mosaic tiles; and anything else that I can find over the next few days or weeks!!

I love to make things so over the years I have accumulated a huge stash of stuff and because I like to try different crafts, that has made the situation worse!! We only have a 2 room flat and as Hubby is an artist - well you can guess that its a little cramped for space in here!

Anyway, have fun looking!

On the mend!

Well, I'm almost 4 weeks post-op and doing pretty well considering it was a full hysterectomy!
Am going stir-crazy sitting around in the house - have managed to crochet myself 2 scarves and read 2 more of my Terry Pratchett Discworld novels - have almost finished "Soul Music"

Its a bit difficult to do anything with a husband following me around the house saying "don't pick that up" - "I'll do that" - "don't stretch"!!!!!!!!! I know he means well, but its driving me nuts!!!

Anyway, am off into town tomorrow on the bus to meet a couple of friends for coffee - will be so good to get out of the house for a while!

Have been listing a few pretty things on Folksy that I made before I went into hospital - want to have a look?
