Empty promises...

Oh dear! i owe myself and you an appology, i failed to post images of my work and studio up for you...
I do however have an excuse.... i lost my camera in my house! Yes, because of the chaos that is currently my house my poor camera got lost beneath the clutter, as i said in my last post, I'm having some work done and all of my belongings and half a kitchen are currently residing in my bedroom. This not only makes getting out of bed difficult for me but also means i cant find anything!!

I thought this week id make a little summary of what i have been doing this year, it sometimes feels like I'm not been very productive, neglecting my blog, Etsy, Facebook etc so i think reminding myself what i have been up too is a good start to getting back on track...

Im feeling very positive that the rest of march is going to continue to get busier and more and more productive! I already have a To do list for the rest of the week, my organisational skills look to be improving.
Exciting times ahead for me and my crafty creations!
Thats all for this week im on a lunch break, time to finish off these head dresses!
