Hi guys, sorry haven’t been around lately as you can see I have been a little busy.
I made a few signs for a little shop in country Australia and they sold really well so i went a little overboard and made some more. All the signs are found online you just have to pick and choose what you want to do. The welcome signs etc are patterns I had except you can get the HOT glove pattern online for free. HERE The neclaces and earings are my first attempt at laminating. With these I also sealed them with a resin to give a nice thick coat and sheen. The knife and spoon is another new interest of trying to make jewellery out of cutlery….YES cutlerly. Considering these are pretty much the first try, they turned out pretty well. They look soooo much better on, than in the picture.

-- Theresa,

Wow, that “is” a lot of stuff. Look at all that jewelry!
I really like the HOT pad thingy, I’m going to look for it online.
I hope I can find it or I’ll be hitting you up for it. Nice job
on everything, love the jewelry.

since i quit my job i have what you call a little time on my hands! so this keeps me somewhat busy.
So yes I will be putting them in a shop to sell (CWA shop in Forbes, should really look a little closer to home tho!) and only time will say what sells and what doesn’t!! But at least it will give me a little pocket money to play with!
