This week's earrings and other creations

This week I have made a series of simple wire wrapped earrings.

I used to make earrings with these beads and use a bail to hang them, but I love the slightly untidy wire wrapped look.
So I ordered some more of the lovely Czech glass beads as in the last 2 photos, but in many different colours. They are such beautiful quality beads, so transparent, kind of like lollies!

Then I played with paper.
I bought these fabulous french inspired collage sheets from CharmedMemoryCollage and used some of the mountains of card I have to make some gift tags.

Then I got a bit carried away and used some of the leftover images from my scrabble tile necklace phase and made some more tags.

These are very time consuming and I'm not sure that they are a very sensible use of my time.
But, hey! I had fun!

In between I found time to get to the sewing machine and make this lady bug that A had designed for a commission.

Plus a prototype VW kombi for the Old Bar beach featival and kombi fest in October.
I'm waiting for a custom stamp that sugarskull7 is making of the VW logo, so Ican stamp that on the kombi.

What have you been up to this week?

I love what you've been up to. I've been trying to tweak the look of my Wuglyees shop on Etsy, to get it ready for Fall. I'm also about to maybe get my items in a new viewing location. So, I'm trying to think about what I should be making to put in there. Busy, busy!!
