Some of my favourite blogs
I can't believe it's already Friday! Just like Christmas is creeping up on me, so the weeks are flying by.
I was warmly received in Tamworth last weekend and there was a lot of interest in my work. A number of ladies have asked me to come back to the next handcrafted market, so I hope that I will be able to return for the last market of this year on the 21st December.
I am in the midst of packing to go to a private showing in Orange. And then next week on Thursday and Friday I have my open day in Coolah. It will be held at the Dream Dance Academy - Thursday is a special preview for existing clients from 11.30 to 2.30pm with some champers and nibblies :) Friday will be open to all from 10am to 6pm.
As well as preparing for these two shows, sending out orders, preparing flyers for the open day etc. I even managed to get some new pieces made! Creating really is the best part of my job and its even better when you don't have to push yourself but it just flows. I was lucky enough that the flow went beautifully and I have some new pieces to show for it. If they don't sell this weekend I will be sure to put them on the site next week!
I also received an award from my good blog-friend Michelle of Michabella Creations. Michelle and I met on the great little site, Skwiggazine, and we seem to hang out on some other sites too as we keep bumping into each other!
Anyway, Michelle, very kindly, awarded me with this:

1. Put the logo on your blog
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you
3. Nominate other blogs for this award
4. Add links to those blogs

Now I'm not going to leave meme notifications for these blogs as I just admire them and want to share them with you!
Here are my Cool Blog Picks:
Bent Objects - this blogger creates the most amazing critters and scenes using not much more than wire!
Collective Creatives - This is a group blog that I participate in and some very talented artists and artisans talk about various facets of their work and the challenges they are confronted with.
Lights Camera ... History - This blog is about period dramas - new films, tv shows and actor/actress profiles.
London Daily Photo - See London in a different light - a different look at the non stop city.
Luann Udell - This is the story behind the artist. Lots of great advice for anyone in the art/craft field.
Three Channels - Elizabeth is a mum of three whom she homeschools. One of her sons is gifted and gives her life an interesting twist or two!

Christa Taylor - Fashion smarts, hints and tips.
Bronte Blog - All things Bronte!
Todays pic is a beaut necklace done this week and one that I could actually keep for myself with VERY LITTLE prompting! Lovely big nuggets of turquoise (stablised), separated by little droplets of almost pure silver and a wonderful slightly oxidised silver bead as a feature on the side. Yum! I would of course love to use completely natural turquoise, but until I win the lottery will just have to be content with natural turquoise that has been treated *sigh*. It is pretty, isn't it!?
Have a great day!
