It’s been a busy couple of weeks here in our little cottage. I’ve signed up for two Blog Hops and celebrated three birthdays. The birthdays were my mother’s and the parents-in-laws and the blog hops are for the Challenge of Color and the Memories and Thanks Blog Hop.
I’ve received my colour palettes for the Challenge of Color and I’m so excited about the colours. The photos for the palettes are from the Earth as Art image gallery, Landsat images donated by NASA. I’ll show off the palettes and the homemade bead soup I created next week.
Here are some photos of the parcels delivered last week. The postie has visited again today with some polymer clay pieces this time. The polymer clay heart pendants are from OddBod Beads, an online shop that has a select range of Australian artisan beads

Easily the biggest pendants I’ve ever seen, at least 85mm across! At the opposite side of the size spectrum, I also received my order from Humblebeads etsy store today.
These lovely beads make me want to get my polymer clay out again, I do have some very old buttons stashed away that it wanted to make some moulds of. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with some of these, but the pink chrysanthemum link is MINE! I want to make a bracelet for myself.
Before I go I’ll leave you with a birthday cake, made by my sister-in-law. Father-in-law is a bit of a fishing nut!
