2012 drawing to an end...

Good morning my lovelies, 

After Mother got a Samsung Galaxy Tablet for Christmas this year I will actually be able to blog more often...I know I have completely neglected you for almost a year. Blogging often will have to be a New Years Resolution! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I was spoilt this year, I received a Vivienne Westwood orb necklace and a Cambridge Satchel Company satchel from my boyfriend. *lucky me!* Amongst other things....Downton Abbey boxset, which I'm very much into at the moment, so much drama! I love it! I also got 2 onesies, a hello kitty one and a creamy coloured bunny, I feel like Max from Where The Wild Things Are when I wear it. I just need a crown. I will have to get some photos when I'm running round screaming 'LET THE WILD RUMPUS START!!!' 

So what kind of year has 2012 been for you?

I started the year with a holiday and then a few weeks later had a left leg the size of an elephant and was in hospital with a blood clot. Although I met so many wonderful old ladies whilst I was there, I could not wait to be home in my own bed and eat nice food! Being off work for a month was nice, yet so very boring at times. 

I also started doing craft fairs with my jewellery, its been quite successful but there have been a few losses along the way, but you never know unless you try. In December Vintage Cottage in Bromsgrove has started stocking my jewellery, I've not heard of any sales yet, but I've got an open mind and fingers crossed things might take off in 2013. 
I have so many ideas bubbling away in my brain that I need to start taking time out to makethem happen, otherwise I'll probably lie in a pool of regret and wish I did make time for things.

Happy New Year and lets hope 2013 is a healthy & creative one!

OH! I'm still here!


I am still live & kicking. Sorry I haven't updated in like a year! I have had computer issues, then I took time out from laptop technology for a good while as I was sick of it being so slow, then I thought it didn't work but little did I know, it did! And I had just neglected it! Silly me. I have a page on Facebook called Little Ginger* that I would love you followers to like & show some love on if you haven't already & there will be a jewellery giveaway at 100 likes! Not far off :)

CLICK HERE to be directed to my Facebook page.

I have jewellery treats on there, so go on, take a peek, maybe you might find something you like :)

As for the design front, I haven't really put pen to paper and drawn in a while, this is where I feel mad at myself for not doodling! I miss uni and having motivation everyday, I feel like I need a kick up the backside!!

I have been creative in other ways, jewellery making, I have recently discovered shrink plastic jewellery making, so I have been doing a few hand drawn aztec print charms, which I liked so much I made myself some earrings and a matching necklace *smiles.*

I've done a few craft fairs this year too, hopefully will have a lot more on the run up to Christmas. My most recent one was Saturday at Morton Stanley Festival, (my local park) there was music, ice cream, various acts such as an african circus or something or other, demonstrations, a craft tent (which I was in) and lots of charity tents. Unfortunatly I didn't do to well, but hey ho, if you don't put yourself out there, you will never know what could happen or who you may meet. Luckily I had support from some of my friends who came down, made a few purchases and Naomi brought a little picnic down for us, chocolate eclairs, yum! Anyhow even though I did pretty pants at that craft stall, I had a much better day at The Old Needle Works in Redditch in July 2012, I made a pretty nifty profit and treated myself to a vintage shirt to celebrate! :-)

I know I should probably stop babbling on and post some photographs for you little munchkins now!
