So I grabbed a little time to have a go at making a succulent plant, personally I love it its so cute it could do with a little tweaking but I'm thinking this will make a lovely charm necklace and or statement ring.


What do you think ?

Holiday Time In Bardolino, Lake Garda Italy

What can I say Oh My Good Bardolino has been amazing!

I've wanted to visit Lake Garda for a few years now, I'd seen all the pictures, Richard E Grants Hotels TV show and obviously the paparazzi snaps of George Clooney who has a place here.

Well what can I say it certainly lived up to my expectations.  The hotels in Bardolino where a little overpriced for us so we decided to stay in an AirBNB our first time to try it out.

We was only a short 10-15min walk away from Bardolino centre and we'd also hired a car to make sure we could take in as many sights as we could.

There are so many other towns to visit on Lake Garda, a 45 min walk along the lake front will take you to Lake Garda town itself and you can catch the lake buses to visit more of the towns all just as beautiful.

We took in a trip to Verona which was a beautiful town to see the sights but in particular Juliets Balcony.

We had an amazing meal on the lake front with the sun setting as we ate.

Oh and to my top my delight Bardolino has its own Rose Wine which was gorgeous (we bought a few bottles back) and how can I forget the ICE CREAM!

A Fleeting Visit To Venice, Italy

Now everyone says how romantic and wonderful Venice is but I have to admit it certainly was'nt on my top ten list of places to visit.

So as we were off to Bardolino in Lake Garda Italy for a weeks break we decided to fly into Venice for a fleeting visit and see if its all its cracked up to be.

So on landing we headed straight for Venice as we only had a few hours to check it out (well I did say it was a fleeting visit).

On first getting there we walked and walked until we finally worked out it was far easier to use the river buses, yes we are total Noobs!

As you can see from just a few of my snaps taken Venice is a beautiful place and I have to say it has certainly captured my heart, it was such a shame that we only had a few hours to dash around and get as many sights in as we could.

It is packed with tourists but we are certainly adding it to our ever growing list of weekend breaks for another future visit.

Polymer Clay Water Cane

Earlier this week I took sometime out to make this Water Cane, I purchased the tutorial for this cane from CraftArtEdu designed by Claire Wallis.

Its a fairly simple tutorial for those that have experience in caning involving skinner blends.

You get two tutorials for the price this water cane and another thunderbolt cane which I have yet to try.

Here's what I made with my finished cane, I did have to stretch the cane a little when applying them to me pendants but i'm delighted with the effect.

I think this cane could look great in an array of colours I'm thinking maybe red next time.
