Jewellery and journals

I've started working in yet another journal. This one has brown paper pages and was on special in a book shop, which meant it was too good to pass up, so another one for the collection.
This is good to use for keeping samples of my stamps. I never repeat the same design exactly when I carve them, so once they've gone off into the world, this book is my reference.

I've been busy over the weekend carving more stamps and making more earrings, they are all on my etsy store. I also have two necklaces which can't be shown at this point in time, but hopefully down the track I can show you.

I must also apologize to Julia from Verdigris Rose. Julia awarded me the Marie Antionette award some time ago and I've just realized I haven't acknowledged her generosity. Thank your Julia for this award, these are the rules as seen on Julia's blog

1. Put the picture of Marie Antoinette on your blog. 2. Link to the person from whom you received the award. 3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs. 4. Link to those blogs from your blog. 5. Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know you've shared the award with them.

I find it hard to award individuals as everyone who visits my blog is so appreciated. Therefore you are all awarded and feel free to add it to your blog.

Great work! I've never tried to carve stamps. Is it hard to do?

Have a great day!

These last two posts go to show that not much can keep us down. Our hearts break and then mend.

I do love the new jewelry and seeing your journal pages. Those stamps are fun!!! I must try some of that this next week.
Thank you for sharing, Ro, and keep on keeping on.

Those earrings with the amber coloured beads are gorgeous as are your new journal pages and stamps. You are so industrious Ro!!!

I am hoping that you are OK up in Belgrave today as I heard earlier that there is a bad fire up your way. I am praying that it doesnt come your way Ro and that it can be put out before it does damage to peoples properties and lives.

Take special care.

I love your home-made stamps! The earrings are really lovely. I love earrings but cannot wear them unfortunately. So you started another journal, I seem to have the same habit too, love the results here!
