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

Schemes, Plans & Plots

4 Nov

FEAR NOT!

I am still in the land of the living!

 

Sorry I have not written for so long, I have been busy but also have been wallowing in a fug of house seller/buyer overwhelmed confusion.

 

Lets get the house bit out the way first – I still haven’t moved!  Nor do I have any idea when I will.  But things are progressing SLOWLY!  After my post on Friday 23rd we  went to London for the weekend expecting to come back on Sunday night to a nice brown envelope on the doormat full of signed stuff – NOTHING WAS THERE!  And nothing continued to be there until Thursday 28th – A WHOLE WEEK LATER!  Lets just say that I wasn’t myself that week, I was so worried that I might be trapped in that stupid flat FOREVER!  And even worse is I would be stuck with the same neighbors too!

 

But it has gone to the mortgage company who have passed it to their Underwriters and hopefully it should be sealed soon (secretly wishing for it to be done by the end of this week) AND THEN WE CAN GET ON AND GET MOVING!!!

 

But after all that I am falling apart.  Mr Sparkles is sending me to the Doctors this afternoon to get me checked over.  I have a sore wrist, which I suspect is the return of the Ganglion, I keep getting really bad indigestion or something, I did have a pain in my side but need less to say that has gone now and I was just a bit glum and emotional.  But, of course, now I feel much better!!!  Still going to go as my wrist is bloody sore!  I had one removed when I was 17 so it has come back and the scar tissue is making it press right on the nerve up my thumb 😦

 

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone I have grumped at recently!

I’m Sorry x


So now that I am back to my old self here is a list of all the half written posts and other subjects I have planned to blog about shortly:

  • Trip to London to see the International NFL game at Wembley
  • Preparation for the MISI Makers Bristol Christmas Craft Fair Explosion on SATURDAY!!!
  • My little brother’s week in Bristol
  • Things I plan to make once I get my own desk in my nice new house
  • Things I would like for Christmas!!!

So there you go, stay tuned for at least five new posts shortly 🙂

Bling Phone – Test 1

25 Sep

The other night whist waiting on my dinner cooking I decided to try and bling up one of my old phones as a bit of a test run before I do my current phone!

The results are not too shabby! I did end up with glue all over my sleeve but the phone managed to survive 🙂

Now to find some other things to bling up……
