I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and is getting ready for the merriments this evening!! Tonight I have my parents, sister and niece coming over for nibbles and games. We do it all again tomorrow when my husbands family come over! We have bought enough food to feed the whole street but it is better to over do than have people wanting more but there is nothing left!!!

In between shopping, cleaning and cooking today, I managed to make a necklace (Goddess In Green) and some earrings (not pictured). The necklace is a bit different for me as it is not a uniformed pattern and I always struggle with this!

Well, the big day is almost upon us and as much as I am a HUGE Christmas fan, I don't want it to come as it will be gone so quickly and then that's it for another year.

I love the colours of the Carnelian in the bracelet and earrings at the top of the post. The word 'Castor' shine, to greek.

Finally, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone. I hope Santa brings you everything you wished for!!

I have been so busy at work (my other job that pays the bills!!) and then I had a stall at the National Trust Ham House for the first 3 weekends of December so this is really the first opportunity I have had to sit down and do whatever I like!!!!

Not sure what to say about the fairs at Ham was in a marquee which was meant to be heated but a small heater at either end of the marquee didn't do much in terms of heat and so everyone was freezing!!! On the first two weekends the rain was awful and the ground outside could not handle it and so decided to come up inside the marquee and a few stalls got flooded!! Luckily mine was about a foot away from being in water!!! Despite all the this, I actually enjoyed myself as it is the best opportunity to hear what people think about my jewellery and I also got to meet some amazing stall holders selling gorgeous wares!!!

Anyway, I thought I would post just a few pictures of what I have been up to lately!!!

I am not going to wish anyone a Merry Christmas in this post cos I want to make sure I post on here again before the big day!!! Here's hoping I do!!
