We have all been conflabbing about how and what we are going to do,and we haven't even got our beads yet hahahahahaah.
Janine's beadwork is amazing and Julie's BoHo jewellery is stunning and yet we are all so nervous about it (and excited) anyhoo watch this space i shall probably be asking for HELP !!!

Other news from Faerystone Castle,well September is going to be WONDERFUL and thats official,my gorgeous daughter "Wild girl and my 2 beautiful grandchildren My Heart and the Diva (oh and the son in law) are coming over from the USA for a couple of weeks,oooo can't wait i miss them all soooo much (yep even the son in law)

Before i go i just wanted to show you this pic of a necklace i made which is winging (sorry) its way to the Netherlands as we speak,its a gorgeous Bo Hulley Angel Wing with a beautiful lampwork bead by Flame and Glass hung on a delicate sterling silver chain, and i loved making it.

Love hugs and everything else a very excited and happy Ramble Bunny xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Two Huge Thankyou's a Big Sorry And a Lovely Challenge

Hello its me again,oh my god your thinking she's going to be on every hour,hahahahahahhaah not quite but i do need to get these things out of the way and then i can go and play with my beads>

Two Huge Thankyou's

I cant tell you how grateful i am to the lovely Lesley Watts and the fabulous Pippa Chandler if it wasn't for them you probably wouldn't be seeing this post ( no you cant blame them you clicked on it) I was so proud of myself for writing and posting this blog and had sat back quite smug,when a lovely friend (Claire Braunbarth from Smitten Bead oopsie slipped that in again ) said to me ermmm lovely RB but where's the follow button.................................What the ....... is a follow button so by now you are getting the idea how much of a plonk i can be with this sort of thing!!!!
After faffing about on google and blogspot for what seemed hours and screaming at my poor little lap top...................where's your dashboard ? ahem and various expletives i needed to call in the big guns.
So i shouted to Lesley on Bead Smitten and both she and Pippa answered,giving me very simple and detailed instructions (they both know how much of a numpty i am) on how to get a follow buton,so there it is on the right waiting for you to click on it. ..........................go on you know you want to!!!!

A Big Sorry

If you have read my previous post you will see that i forgot (hangs head in shame) to include my children in the info about me,and as my daughter said ..."Nice Mother " i thought i had better resolve it or they will never forgive me.
My son who is 33 (The Boy) my daughter who is 30(The Wild Girl) my Grandson who is 11(My Heart) my granddaughter who is 2 (The Diva) and last but certainly not least my mum who is 89(Little Mum).
SORRY SORRY SORRY hope that's sorted that.

The Challenge
Photo: So then...who fancies joining Caroline and I for a bit of a challenge with some bargain art beads...

Go on you know you want to...

Now this is the challenge i want to do i hope i have posted it ok,look at all the gorgeous beads and pretties i neeeeeeeeed to i want to,oh dear sorry got a little carried away there.But if any of you lovely people would like to have a go at this challenge i promise not to growl at you (well not much lol)

So there we go hopefully you will be able to follow me now and hopefully the children will speak to me again,love hugs and everything else Ramble Bunny xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I have no idea what i'm doing

Well here goes,a lot of my friends and family have told me i should write a blog,oh dear god whats one of those i reply,knowing me as they do and knowing how absolutely useless at anything technical i am i was shocked that they though i could do it (think they were too really)But here goes,now if i get anything wrong i will expect all you clever peeps to sort me out.

About Me

Oooooo how horrid to have to talk about ones self (and why do i suddenly sound like the queen lol)
Ok so my name is Lucy (Ramble Bunny to you) and i live in a small village in the wonderful county of Lancashire.Yep i'm from "Up North" I live with My Hubby and two terrors (terriers) and one cat in a little semi facing the village green.
I have always worked in catering up and even had my own little business up until a few years ago when i had a really bad fall damaging my spine.This stopped me from working and so i had to find something else to keep me sane (well sort of).

What I Do

Soooooo a couple of years ago i found BEADS woohoo and jewellery making yay and i LOVE IT.I started off like most people stringing a few bits and bobs on to wire,getting my information from books, you tube,and the local bead shop.Then i was invited to join a fabulous bead group called Bead Smitten WOW WOW WOW i have never looked back, so much info so much laughter and so many wonderful people,my jewellery has taken on a life of its own and i am learning more and more every day.

What I Will Blog About

I have know idea anything everything,Hubby, dogs, the cat, my children (oh yes i forgot about them) silly things, serious things and of course BEADS ,whatever my daft brain comes up with lol .

Sooooo come a long with me on this new adventure it should be FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

Love hugs and everything else Ramble Bunny xxxxxxxxxxxx
