My creative space - is a mess!

I got out some beads to make some earrings -


but my work desk is a mess!
Never mind - I just made a little space and carried on.
The task of tidying up was too great and I just wanted to make something!



 I have also been supplies shopping today - just a few things, some findings, beading wire and chain.
I love new supplies.


I love the different colours of craft wire -


This and these will become earrings -


I'm joining in with My Creative Space on Village Voices over at kidspot.
Pop on over and have a look!

Five Fabulous Friday Finds from my Faves - yoga

How has your week been?

How do you like to start your week?

I start mine with a yoga class every Monday, and it's a great way for me to begin the week.

Sooooo, I thought I'd show you some yoga-ish finds.

You can never have too many yoga tops, and I love the sentiment on this one.
It looks super-comfy too.

Then, of course, you need something for the future cooler weather.
In fact I would probably wear this a lot - and not just for yoga.

Comfy pants are a must too.
There are lots of lovely ones in this shop, it was hard to chose.

What a fabulous yoga mat bag! So practical - it's worm like a backpack and has a spot to hold a drink bottle as well.
I already have a mat bag by Alipink, but this one is still on my list.

And I just could not resist this cute poster with salute to the sun on - I can never remember the order of it. This is just the job!

Do you do yoga?
Or any other regular exercise? Alone or with a friend or group?

Have a great weekend!

Cooking & something completely different....well a bit different!

My creative space this week includes a bit of cooking -

sweet potato burgers with haloumi
- and something different.
I mentioned that I'm not going to be making the tshirts for Boos Tees anymore - after I have got rid of the stock that I have at the moment, but I have a considerable amount of fabric.....so this week I took some of these -


and some of these -


- rummaged through some of this -


and made some of these -


Can you guess what they are going to become?


That's right!
Earrings!



I was having so much fun....but then I ran out of stud backs...so I have to go supplies shopping - aw, what a shame!


What's been happening in your space (creative or otherwise) this week?

If you'd like to join in or check out other creative spaces pop over to My Creative Space at Village Voices on Kidspot.

Saturday Seven - fabulous male actors

A bit of frivolity this week!
...and maybe a bit of eye candy!

The fabulousness of male actors is so subjective and they can be fab for very many reasons - good actors, great presence, funny men, versatile and long-lasting, or just gorgeous!


- Robert de Niro, a fave from way back.


- George Clooney, admired by men and women alike.



- Johnny Depp, a bit unconventional and not short on gorgeousness.



- Paul Newman - ah, those blue eyes.



- Laurence Olivier - had to put a classic in there.



- Viggo Mortensen - pretty hot in Lord of the Rings.



- Steve Buscemi - a favorite of the Coen brothers, so that can't be bad.

How about you?
What are your picks?

Leave you list in the comments or put your link in the comments and I'll pop over and have a look.

Five Fabulous Friday Finds

I feel that I am always posting the same sort of things in my Friday Faves.

I have a penchant for rings, coin purses, photographs and quirky art - that's all!

I love the simplicity of these diamond stacking rings - would love to have all three of them! (The link goes to a listing for the bottom ring only).
Hey! I can dream - right?!

Continuing my love of sweet little zip pouches - I have to severely restrain myself from buying every zip pouch/coin purse that I see!
I could easily pocket all of these -

I'm a bit the same way about notebooks - you can never have too many can you?
This one has adorable original artwork on - reminds me of children's stories, or nursery rhymes.

The next find fills my addiction to both dreamy photography and cushions!
I would need to buy some more chairs if I bought more cushions - but I can dream!
I admit that I saw these over on Red Parka - thanks Jen for sharing!

You really should go and check out this shop - it has many beautiful applications of her photographs -

.....and now for something completely different!
From my lovely on-line friend Deb of Two Cheeky Monkeys - a range of eye-popping neon necklaces.
Wow!

I promise next week I will break away from my "usual" picks and find some mad, unusual stuff!.....off I go to search....

Have a great weekend!

My creative space - drying and beading

I'm trying to be more organised and actually get some stuff done!

Today I got off to a good start by preparing some capsicums and tomatoes for the dehydrator.







They take a couple of days to dry, but I'll let you know what they look like when they are done.

I'm trying to catch up with Downton Abbey as I missed a few episodes and the third series had just started....but I managed to do a bit of beading while I was watching.




Still haven't finished both of them - the bracelet or the dvds!
Maybe tomorrow.

I'm joining in with My Creative Space on Village Voices over at Kidspot - come and have a look to see what else is going on there!
