Just a few

                    listings today.

Last week I popped into the local bead shop, and bought a small selection of beads with the last £5 I had in my purse!

I always seem to be attracted to the same colours all the time, bright pinks! So this time I thought I would be a little different and choose some colours that I haven't really used for earrings before!
I went for very light pink, lilac, colbolt blue, aqua turquoise, brown and black.

So here are my makes!

All the earrings are available now to buy on Sprinkles Sparkles Online for £2.00 each, or click the links under each earrings image.

There are also many stocking fillers too, from £1!

Sprinkles Sparkles is also raising money for BBC Children In Need. A donation from each of your purchases will be going towards this fantastic charity.

Sprinks' Day Out!

Okay, maybe not a blog post about my new makes, but a post about Sprinks Day Out!
On Tuesday we went to see GREEN DAY in concert at the LG Arena in Birmingham! I had been looking forward to it for months and months.

We traveled up from Reading at 3:30pm, stopping off at a service station on the way.
After getting a little lost we finally arrived at the LG Arena car park just after 6pm. We paid for the car park (which was £8! They certainly know how to charge!), we waited in line for the bus that took us along the road to the main arena.

The queue getting in wasn't too bad. The man searched my bag, I say searched... it was more like a little peep!
We headed into the lobby and scanned the area. I found the merchandise section and stood looking at the mass crowd of people.
Sometimes it's great being small! I was able to wiggle my way to the front (very naughty I know!) in a matter of seconds, and we bought our souvenir t-shirts to wear in the arena.

We grabbed a panini and headed to into the arena to find our seats. It was pitch black, and we couldn't find our seats, let alone the row letter! The steward found our seats (i want to be a steward when i grow up, they get to stay in the arena the whole time,  see the concert, and get paid for it!).

We say down, and I changed my black strappy top for the Green Day t-shirt!
Now, if you remember the girls changing rooms at school, we were all very good at the art of changing tops without having stripe! I'm glad to say I still have the knack!

Finally, Green Day came on stage. I had already sat through their supporting act of 'Prima Donna' which the crowd were not warming too.

Then the show began!


The show ended around 11ish, I think, and we headed on out. I was absolutely exhausted! We walked back to the car, as the bus queue was ginormous. We headed on back to down south to Reading, finally getting back around 3am. We decided not to stay over in the end.

So that was my day off!
And a damned good one at that!

And on the business side... I have sold some goodies this week, through my own website, Sprinkles Sparkles Online, and on my MISI store!

New Magazine - Creative Crafting!

It's finally published!
Creative Crafting Magazine is online for your viewing pleasure!

The magazine wouldn't have been completed without the brilliant Anna, The Crystal Lady, from Mystic Earth. I was very worried on Thursday night, that Anna was going to go pop, over the stress of getting the magazine proofed by the end of the night! But we did it!

And to all the other contributors to the magazine. WOOHOO! We did it!

I hope you enjoy reading Creative Connections magazine. It's a Halloween special for issue 1.
Please feel free to leave a comment on the page, and to rate it too! We would also love it if you would help twitter, blog, and facebook link etc the magazine!
