Phone Charms & Organza Necklace

Apologies for being awol a bit recently - life has overtaken me a tad!   I am still struggling with the decorating of the lounge, and the stripping of wallpaper - but I am getting there slowly!  However, abandoned the decorating yesterday and today and did some crafting, as was feeling a little underpar.  

Made these items last night, as I had promised our sugarcraft club that I would make a couple of items for the Christmas Party Night Raffle tomorrow.  (They already have a paint fusion candle, and I may possibly wrap up another.  Depends how time permits tonight/tomorrow -  I may even make some boxes for these items!)

The first item is a couple of very simple phone charms in red and purple.

The second item is one of my ribbon necklaces with a little charm pendant.  This was an experiment with some wider organza ribbon bought from Joanna Sheen.  Also because they didn't have any silver ball ends in  our little local craft shop - I had to use gold ones - and of course all my pendant bits are silver, thus having to make a suitable charm with gold findings.   (and typing this have just realised that I was supposed to ring said craft shop to make sure the owner understood the order I asked the chap to write down for her today for the silver bell ends - and of course it's too late now - the shop will be closed!  grrr.  she isn't in every day either - have to see if I can e-mail her!)

Organza Ribbon Necklace
Right better go and feed the man of the house, and then settle down tonight to Christmas card writing, and using the flat spitty thing and the surfboard!     :-)

Thanks for dropping by.
