It's a little wasp like, made using black obsidian and crystals with yellow fresh water pearls but I like it.

I'm 28 today and I think I'm going to enjoy it. Firstly I don't like odd numbers, I always look forward to my next even number. Not sure that will be the case when I'm 29 though!
Secondly 2010 is officially my year! I have a good feeling about it. I received an order of silver wire today. I have lots of beautiful gems pearls and crystals but no wire so I haven't been able to make! then once I have made lots of lovely new pieces I can photograph them and add them to Etsy and Coriandr. I've never really given my shops the TLC they deserve. I've never spent enough time doing online marketing but now i have this beautiful Laptop I can.
Thirdly, my first Craft fair is less than two weeks away and I am so excited about that. Organising it hasn't been as easy as I hoped. Last week we had to change the venue as the local council were being very obstructive. I had to practically beg the market department to give us permission to hold the thing and then when they finally relented the charge for a license to hold it was so extortionate that we would have made a large loss. Our stall fees are low because I want to provide sellers with a great venue that wont break the bank. I was paying £50+ per stall before Christmas and making a loss. I'm happier with the new venue at www.thewhitcliffehotel.co.uk It's a lovely hotel, I got married there!
Well I have a half made amethyst and pearl bracelet that isn't going to finish it's self so I best be off.
If you are a seller and interested in holding a stall please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm having a little trouble with the A key. It wasn't working properly but I've restarted it and it all seems okay now, fingers crossed! I've become quite attached to Alexis and I don't want to have to take her back to the shop.
So now I don't have to sit on a barstool hunched over PC in the spare room. Na, the A didn't work then. Ah sorry Alexis, you're going back!
Took her back and swapped her. Alexis mark 2 is good to go!
