Back in the Creative Saddle

Inspired by six weeks of living cheek by jowl with nature has prompted me to get busy. I've decided to stock up with beauties ready for the Christmas rush:

These lovely copper and silver earrings can be purchased here,

Another copper and silver pair:

and a lovely pair of reticulated silver drop earrings will be listed soon:

I need to get busy making some more rings as I've had two sales from my shop and a request for another, but I fancy some different designs so watch this space.

In the meantime, I've been busy turning scrummy Victoria plums into jam:

and my first attempt at spiced chutney:

The jam is apparently delicious and disappearing fast, but the chutney needs to keep for at least 6 weeks before sampling so I'll let you know about that one.

At the weekend, little helpers came on a walk,

and one puppy went for a swim in the canal, before learning how to pick these

Unfortunately because he picked them with his mouth, we didn't fancy using them, but youngest pixie face and I picked enough to make one of these:

..and some of these:

Lovely silver earrings Tammy. I love those eatables too. Aren't the blackberries wonderful this year? I have sampled so many on walks, far more than usual.

Hi Tammy,
Just answering your question on my blog about Artfire.
I've not had that many sales there (7 since May, compared to over 100 on Folksy!) but to be honest I downgraded to a basic acc recently and have sort of abandoned it for a while.
However, they've just announced that if you sign up before 1 Oct you will definitely get the $5.95 a month deal which will inspire me to make more of an effort!
