Another mixed bag

I've been busy trying to add new things to my Etsy store, it's a very time consuming process. Here are just a few of the things, I will be adding more over the next few days.


This is a necklace I made recently, its colour theme is teal and silver.



This is a close up of some of the drops.



This is a small journal I've made, it has lots of decorated pages but plenty of room for you to add your own art or to journal.





















The last image is the cover with a fabric spine.




One of my favourite designs is the pomegranate stamp SOLD.



This one's a Japanese blossom stamp.





I'm slowly adding things to my store. I'm also experimenting with new jewellery after taking Susan's workshops. So much to do with so little time. I spent quite a large portion of yesterday painting the princess wall, it's slowly growing, my little adviser wasn't happy with two of the faces, so I ended up painting them out, I will start them again next week.

Thanks again for all of your kind comments, I'm hoping April will be a little less hectic but it probably won't be.

The Princess wall is looking fantastic...your little adviser is quite the task master. Beautiful little grand daughter!
Lovely soft colours in your latest necklace. That teal looks wonderful with the silver and another amazing journal. You're such a busy person, I'm always amazed by how much you have created.
Enjoy your nearly acquired skills from Susan's class. Sounds like it was SUPER!

How gorgeous is your painting supervisor. The wall looks great. Your necklace and journal are fantastic Ro. You certainly have been busy creating all that and stamps.

Everybody is a critic......you have a particularly adorable one. I, for one, think the wall looks amazing.

Doing all of this great work in a busy month. I give you so much credit.

Fabulous color combination on your necklace, and the components are beautiful. Love the journals and your little stamps too, Ro. Had to chuckle when I read about your demanding "client"! LOL! Seriously, you've done a heck of a job on the Princess wall! Hugs, Terri xoxo

You are very busy! I think your journal is exquisite and as you say...plenty of room for a person to write and make it their own. Good luck with sales!

Your journal pages are so lovely - and would translate beautifully into stitch, I bet.

I have just read of the passing of your dear mother, Ro and am so sorry.
I'm glad, though, that you have been able to make such beautiful art and that it is helping you to heal, and your workshop looks incredible... I would love to have been there with you and those other wonderful artists/teachers.
My favorite page in your small journal is the stiched seed pod. But I love all your pages.
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog... life will go on... roxanne

Beautiful necklaces and I love the book. So many beautiful pages. Your Princess wall is definitely a labour of love and will be stunning when it's finished.

Thank you for your good wishes for my Mum. She is till in hospital and we have high hopes that her pacemaker will be fitted soon so she can come home.

Your little Princess in chief must be thrilled with your mural!!! Your other work is stunning as always!!! i am having trouble finding good carving rubber all of a sudden. My stuff is very shreddy not sure if they ahve changed their formula- very frustrating. Your rubber looks almost like soap- almost glossy. What brand or variety do you use- if you don't mind telling?
Big Hugs!

Love your new necklace Ro. Such lovely and soothing colors. Ands the Princess wall is coming along beautifully. Can't wait to see what your creative soul comes up with after your classes with Susan. I know these classes will add another special dimension to your art.
