my creative space ....

My creative space involved something new this week - a bit of jewellery making with little fabric scraps of Swizzle ...


I was flitting around blogland, visiting some people who had left comments and I stumbled across this little kit from Miss Milla's.


These types of kits are tradionally used with paper, but I really wanted to try fabric, and I think it worked really well! There are a few stages and some glue drying time involved, but it was such a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a gloomy afternoon. I could have made dozens! Lucky for me, and for you, Kirsten from Miss Milla's is offering free postage until 31 July - just enter the promo code NJFREESHIP at the checkout - thanks Kirsten, your note and offer were such a lovely surprise.

More creativity at this lovely place - noticing a lot of good stuff over there!
