Firing my imagination

My latest piece, Fiery Heart, is so called because of the bright, tropical-coloured beads I've used in its creation.

Inspiration for the colours used in its design came from a magazine advert for paint. I thought that the combination of brights in the room set just looked so gorgeous together that I needed to use them in my work.

Its so colourful that I almost want to keep it for myself. I won't though - you can buy it now on Folksy - just click the image below:

I love my Etsy friends. They like to send me things just because they think I'd like them. The latest sweetiepie to send me pretties was maker of hand-embroidered goodness, Laura of LAMdesigns.

There are little cobweb baggies (which some lucky customers will get things in no doubt), one of which contained a cobweb eyepatch and little wire spider. Plus there were Moo cards, and a very sweet little note on equally sweet notepaper.

Laura says that she was going through her stash and realised that, as much as she liked these bits, that she was unlikely to use them. She knew I'd like them though, and sent them on to me. Thanks sweetie! x
