Recently a few of All That Glitters creations have been featured on Cuteable.com and the Sew Scrumptious blog!

 

The lovely Lynsey at Cuteable.com picked the Button Up Necklace in Rainbow for their Flickr week pick of the MISI pool!

Button Up Necklace - Rainbow

 

I’m afraid to say that some lucky person snapped up the Rainbow version at the MISI event on saturday!  But fear not you can still get the Button Up necklace in Blue!

 

Louise from Sew Scrumptious was my ‘neighbour’ at the MISI event and she bought one of my teacup pin cushions for her Mum’s 70th birthday.  She is on a mission to get 70 presents for her and the teacup pin cushion made prsent number 41!  You can follow her quest here.

 

After a very big discussion involving many people from around the room Louise went for the Spring Martini rather than the Pink Daisy.

Teacup Pin Cushion - Spring Martini

 

Even thought Louise bagged herself one there are still a few left on MISI including another one in Spring Martini!  (Can you tell it’s my favourite!)

MISI Event – The During & The After

9 Nov

The All That Glitters stall at the MISI Event

 

 

I have now recovered enough to report back on the MISI Makers Bristol event which took place on Saturday.   It was a long but FANTASTIC day.

 

 

 

The first 100 people through the doors grabbed themselves a nice swag bag in what seemed like 5 minutes!  It was busy all day long and a big HELLO! to everyone who stopped by to see us.

 

 

 

But I got it wrong again!  All the things I thought would sell didn’t and all the things that I thought wouldn’t did!  I just can’t seem to guess what you crazy public want!

 

 

 

From a personal point of view it was great to meet some more MISI sellers and to see the Bristol lot again!  And it was lovely to spend the day with my MISI neighbours Susie from The Wool Sanctuary and Louise of Sew Scrumptious.  And a HUGE thank you to Cherri Burelle florists for the gorgeous flowers in All That Glitters colours 🙂

 

 

 

Here are a few photos from the day:

MISI Event – The Before

6 Nov

The MISI fair is TOMORROW!!!

Somehow it has sneaked up on me and I haven’t done half the things I planned to do.

Some of the things I have managed to do are:

  • Ordered some lovely flowers from Cherri Burrelle the florist at Unit 2.7 in the Paintworks.  They will be running some taster workshop throughout the day on Saturday so pop in and see them.  Or give them a ring on 0117 972 1356.
  • Made some more Whole Lotta Love rings in Fuchsia & Crystal and Emerald.

  • Made some ‘Bling Your Thing’ samples (they will be for sale at the MISI event if you have a special love for them!)

I was going to take a picture of the massive pile of junk that I am taking with me tomorrow but I forgot 😦

 

Don’t forget to come early to be in with a chance of getting one of the 100 Swag Bags for the first people in!


And you can also sign up for one of the workshops running!  Am very jealous as I want to do all of them 😦  Might see if I can leave All That Glitters in the capable hands of Mr Sparkles and sneak off to make a T-Shirt bag 🙂

 

There will also be mince pies and mulled wine.  At the moment I am trying to decide what the earliest time is that I can have some mulled wine without looking like a right lush 😉

 

I will, of course, report back in full after the event.

 

If you are stopping by please come and say hello it would be lovely to meet some of the people who read my blog x

Weekend Project Update

21 Sep

On Friday I blogged about my project plans for the weekend so here are the results!
.
Project 1: Button Necklace & Bracelet

After seeing all the buttons sat together I couldn’t bear to separate them so here are 2 multi coloured button pieces!

Project 2: Swarovski Crocheting Bracelet

Sadly this was a non starter 😦  I got distracted making cakes for my office’s Macmillan Coffee Morning today.  I made Snickerdoodles (thanks to Chy & her sister for the recipe) and on request from Mr Sparkles a Banana & Walnut loaf (thanks to Delia for that one)!

Project 3: Tea Cup Pincushions

Tea cup pincushions are complete!  So complete they even have matching pins!  more pics to follow later 🙂

Project 4: MISI Makers Event Swag Bag Gifts

100 crystal heart mobile phone charms complete!!!!  Will post a few pics later.

So that was my weekend.  Today was cushioned by the serious amount of cake consumed at work 🙂

Hope you all had a good one too and here’s to a great week ahead x

One thing at a time? Not me!!!!

18 Sep

I was sitting here during my lunch break trying to decide what to do after inhaling my horrible cheese and pickle sandwich.  (CREATE really need to get a better sandwich maker in, they are going down hill FAST!)

 

So I had a nose in my bag to see what I could make!  About a million half started things fell out at me.

 

So by revealing them to you I vow to actually have the finished by Sunday night and to post them on here!  And if I don’t you can call me names or something 🙂

 

Project 1: Button Necklace & Bracelet  

The other week I bought a big bag of lovely buttons from the Shiney Company shop at the Paintworks in Bristol.  I plan to make a multi-colour necklace and bracelet from them.

Project 2: Swarovski Crocheting Bracelet

Yesterday when I got home from work there was a jiffy envelope for me.  Mr Sparkles asked as to what it contained –  I had a sudden panic: had been ordering beads in my sleep or something???  I couldn’t think!

  

BUT FEAR NOT!  I HAD WON A PRIZE 😀 

 

I completed an online questionnaire on the Swarovski Create Your Style website ages ago and was entered into a draw to win a bracelet kit.

This one might not get done!  My crochet isn’t very good and Swarovski instructions are sometimes a bit random to follow! 

    

Project 3: Tea Cup Pincushions

OK so not actually in my bag but they still need finished!  Making them, well, because I wanted one!  I will be selling these at the MISI Makers Event in Bristol.  I’m sure a couple will also appear on my online shop.  ONCE I GET THEM FINISHED!!!!!!!!!

Project 4: MISI Makers Event Swag Bag Gifts
