Frosty mornings

How is your new year going? I hope you have lots of lovely plans for 2017!

I've been hard at work making some super new designs and I will be posting them shortly. They're mostly earrings and necklaces so far, super creations in glass, semi-precious beads, and pretty colours for spring and summer.

My Twitter posts are now up to 250! 

Its been cold and foggy here, and with thick frost in the mornings. Talking of Frost (see what I did there?) how about a little poem?

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of the easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Happy New Year! I predict this will be wonderful year for everyone reading this post...

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas/holiday?

The shop is back up again. I've had a little break from making – well, what with the whole Christmas thing, and other RL paraphernalia, its been difficult finding the opportunity! However, I shall start making again this weekend, and I can't wait. I've got so many ideas to try, lots of new lines coming up, and I need to get on with my upcoming Spring and Summer jewellery, too.

Before we finally say goodbye to 2016 though, I would like to share a couple of Chrimble pictures.

The first is my Christmas cat, looking somewhat miffed by it all...

And you might be in interested in a local tradition. Residents of the town knit Christmas or winter scenes to decorate post boxes. Its fun and quirky! As an example, how about this one:

Happy 2017 everyone!
