Grungeboard Bracelets

These are two of my grungeboard bracelets.
The blue one is made of rectangles linked with jump rings and a lobster clasp.
The pink one is a single strip of grungeboard with a small push through knob to hold it together.
I love making them because they are easy yet really effective.

Sock Creations

I've been a bit busy of late, but these are my latest creations. I'd like to introduce you to Frankenstein's bunny, Floral and Pink the piggies. These three little cuties are made using little socks and a few funky buttons. I've had a book full of ideas for sock characters and I'm planning on getting the sequel too.
It was touch and go there for a while though I made the mistake of letting my twins take the piggies to nursery the day after I made them. I arrived later that day to collect the twins and the piggies to find number one daughter holding the inners of Floral and sobbing about the rest of the piggy being missing. We found the outer sock of Floral on a shelf in the nursery. Panic over I think to find number two daughter grinning at me minus Pink. When I asked where Pink was the response was, 'I've lost it but you can make me another Mummy!' Thankfully the nursery teachers managed to find Pink and she was returned to us the next day. Kids who'd have them??????
