Checking my emails this morning I saw I had a message from Etsy seller Pam of P W Originals telling me she has picked a pair of my earrings for her Treasury "Im Feelin' In The Pink" ~ a lovely pick of pinks and greys. What a nice way to start a Sunday!
Check out Pam's shop for her very pretty handmade purses, totes and cushion covers.

I've also started using a mini tripod I bought from eBay a few years ago which was immediately shoved into a draw when it arrived. I took one look at it and thought I just couldn't be bothered faffing about with it but I've now started using it together with the timer on my camera so I don't have to worry about having the shakes when I'm taking photos. Those photography guides do make sense after all!
Now I just have to find something I'm happy with for my copper jewellery as the grey is a bit dark for it sometimes depending on the colour of the beads. If any of you have any tips for backgrounds for copper jewellery I would be very grateful!

My other cat Charlie was very interested in it but as he treats insects as snacks I made sure he couldn't get to it. I also saw a bright green one earlier today which I'm assuming was a younger one.

Handmade And Fabulous is a new blog recently started by Susie of Folksy shop Lynwood Jewellery.
In Susie's own words Handmade And Fabulous is "a blog dedicated to hunting down the best that handmade artisans have to offer in the world of fashion, accessories and homewares. The blog has no global boundaries; it looks for inspiration from all corners of the globe. It presents some of the wonderful clothes, design, fashion, home wares and accessories that humans are making across the globe now!"
Susie will be regularly showcasing beautiful handmade items from online venues such as Folksy, Artfire and Etsy. If it's handmade and fabulous I'm sure she will find it!
Handmade And Fabulous also has a Flickr group. Why not pop over and add some of your photos? Each week Susie is hoping to pick the three most popular items and include them in a blog post for all to see. What a great idea!
This week's picks were this lovely clutch bag from Urban Knits
And this cute Owl Cushion from Linziloop, both Folksy sellers
A pair of my earrings were also featured!
I want to wish Susie all the best with her new blog and Flickr group ~ helping to increase awareness of the beautiful items that are made by artists and designers everywhere can only be a good thing!
