I have spent large chunks of this past week doing really tedious things like spreadsheets - ugh even the word makes one want to yawn. I've managed to find a work-around for the fact that Paypal UK will not let vendors set overseas postage rates. This last task took up a vast amount of time I could have better spent with scissors and glue but heigh-ho it was necessary and is now out of the way. On to prettier things!
I have made some new altered steel washer pendants and these are they.
I love these, love the polka dots, the cherries, the tiger print - all of 'em.
I made some altered steel washer rings too.
Hopefully I should get these in the store tonight or tomorrow if I can stand to part with them. Not the teapot though, I seriously need that one.
I've also been on something of a mini envelope kick. I found one I'd made ages ago and thought it would look nice in my filofax, I could keep train tickets in it or whatever.
Obviously when I saw how good it looked I had to make some more. Well you would, wouldn't you?

The ones on the left are the same size as the ones in the filofax, once I saw them I wanted even smaller ones to fit a business card in (above).
I've been looking at various blogs to find out how people organise their organisers and have a great love for stickers, tape and post-it note type page markers. I've been using punched out mini tags but I'm not keen on them, they lack something. I remembered I had some re-moistenable adhesive, or lick and stick glue if you'd rather (I know I would) so I thought I could cut strips of paper, coat them in the old lick and stick, shove a pretty die-cut or sticker on the end et voila! Pretty page markers! The good thing about using lick and stick is that I can keep the markers in the acetate pocket and they won't stick nor do they require a backing sheet. This one is only the first experiment:
Now that I know it works I'm going to experiment further with fancy scissors and different papers.
