These are the things I do to keep me busy (ha ha, not that I'm not busy enough). When I'm not in the kitchen, I'm in the sewing room or the garage. I'm the one in the family that uses the power tools (shhh, don't tell my husband). I love upholstery and painting and all sorts of things so in order to inspire you I'm sharing them here.

Bubblegum Necklace

Bubblegum beads! They are large beads, usually 16mm or more, made from either resin or acrylic. The large camelia (hot pink) coloured ones I’ve used here are covered in rhinestones – honestly, what’s not to love!
