Mad Mayhemmers Finale

So armed with my Chai tea latte Mmmm..... I went on my usual lunchtime wonder of the net -Tweeted, Myspaced, know the usual and came back to the MM thread on Folksy.

As Yesterday was the last day of the Mad Mayhemmers challenge before the "June Loons" starts thought it would be lovely to share a few of my personal highlights from some of the guys and gals that took part in the MM challenge.

Some favourite Mayhemmer listings from my own shop........

Great Balls Of Colour

I have been inspired by today's glorious weather......

I'm thinking pretty flowers, playful prints and Bright colours which led me to list this bold colourful Great Balls Of Colour Felted Bead Necklace with satin ribbon tie- absolutely perfect for today's fabulous sunshiny day.

According to the weatherman it's only gonna get better so more summer listings to come.

I'm a member of the Mad Mayhemmers, a crazy bunch who have set the challenge of listing an item a day in May.

It's challenging but really a lot of fun, everyone is lovely, supportive and very talented so I'd like to share some of the listing from today.

OK soooo cheating a bit as this piece wasn't actually listed today but I think it's stunning, Spring Bead Hand Knitted & Crochet Handbag by NOfkantsCurios.

Very delicate great colour Cocktail Bracelet by Swirls And Squiggles.

Gorgeous Sterling Silver & Butter Jade Stud Earrings by Deborah Jones Jewellery.

If you would like to see more MM listing from today see Here and don't forget to stop by these great shops.

Psst.... Like this blog follow me.....oh and pass it on.

So Many Backgrounds Too Little Time

When I decided to start a blog I thought setting up would be the easy part but if you're anything like me~(a perfectionist and control FREEK!!) you'll understand what I mean when I say So many backgrounds too little time.

I just wanted my little space to be cute, kitsch and perfect.....not too much to ask so I went to the "cute, kitsch and perfect" background site....a good few HOURS later and I've finally settled on this one- still not entirely sold on it but I really can't look at any more backgrounds lol.

What do you think?
