Autumn bead crafts, delectable earrings.

Just a quick update to the autumn earring collection

I love beading. In less than 5 minutes you can have a completely unique pair of earrings and the satisfaction of being able to say, “I made them” well… at the very least you could say, “I assembled the component parts”.

Now I must learn how to make my own beads.

Take care



Happy accident leads to bloody hands

While I was colouring some cake frosting yesterday I made a bit of a mess. The red food colouring went everywhere and as the deep scarlet seeped into my skin I had a revelation.

Halloween hands


It doesn’t come off. After washing your hands a couple of times you can plunge into the finger food without a care in the world.


It doesn’t come off. If you have you have an important interview, or are meeting the in-laws for the first time the next day, maybe, steer clear.

If you want to give it a go, then simply soak your fingers tips in food colouring for a few seconds and then wash of the excess, use an old towel to dry your hands on as on the first couple of washes some colour will come off, and be careful not to get it on your clothes.

Now go make a bloody mess
