I don't know how they do it

Keep their blogs up to date I mean. What with running around after a 2yr old and a 1 yr old, trying to get myself noticed on etsy and getting things made to sell. I never seem to find the time to update my blog.

Part of the problem is that I never really know what to write about.

I've just ordered a heap of design stamps from the US to use on my decorated links. I love making them and the new stamps will really increase my options. I'm also looking for some kiddies pictures to put in some resin pendants. I thought I had what I needed but unfortunately the quality just wasn't there so I've got to have another look around today.

I've recently listed some of my pierced, resin filled pendants but I'm not sure how well they're going down. We can but hope. Here are a couple of pictures, the first is the pendant I mentioned in my previous post that was my contribution to a swap I ran on a beading forum and the second is one that I've recently listed on etsy, I really hope you like them.

Where does the time go

Yes I know, I've been really slack updating my blog, what with my sons first birthday and running a pendant swap on a forum I belong to the time just runs away.

The swap's been really successful. I think I'll ask a couple of the ladies if I can do a bit of a feature on their work. I'm pretty sure they wont mind. They certainly turned out some beautiful pieces.

I'm all excited at the moment, I just bought a disc cutter, which for those of you that don't know is used to cut perfect circles from metal. My husband and I had a play with some copper last night and it's so easy to use.

Can't wait until I get a bit of, 2 kids asleep time, so that I can have a go at a piece of silver that I etched ages ago and put aside for just this time.

Well I'll close now, hopefully I'll post a couple of pictures soon of my first creations using my disc cutter.

Oh by the way, I didn't manage to get my first etsy sale in July but hey there's always August and I've been listing regularly and snagging treasuries all over the place so hopefully at least I'm getting my store name out there.
