Brotherly Love!

How cute are these two? They often lay together like this - usually one of them starts to wash the other and it ends in a scrap though. They've been fast asleep like this for a couple of hours.

I really could do with an early night - I'm so tired. I woke up about 6 this morning and I could have sworn I heard someone going down the stairs. I thought it was one of the boys but they were both asleep. I ventured halfway down the stairs and then I panicked and had to get hubby to go down!!

I won't be to bed very early tonight though as I promised my son I'd take him to Asda because there's a computer game that's being released at midnight. The things we do for our kids!

I should have some beads ready to go on the website tomorrow. I'm also sorting some out for free draw so keep an eye out for that.

I've got a new kiln!!

Hubby finally gave in and let me order my new kiln which arrived on Thursday. Would you like to see it? It's very pink!
I was starting to paint the studio in the beigy colour you can see in the pic but now I think I might go for a nice pale pink. What do you think - too much?

I tried the kiln out for the first time on Friday. The shelf that it's on now has only just been put up - the kiln was standing further over to the left before which made opening the left hand side difficult because it was near my torch. Silly me forgot about that, reached over to put a bead in and heard a strange fizzing noise accompanied by the most revolting smell. Let me tell you that burning hair does not smell good!! Yep, my hair got fried. Not too much thankfully but let's just say I need to visit the hairdressers pretty soon.

You may have noticed that I've redesigned my header for my website and blog. I wonder how long it'll be before I do it again!

Would you like to see some of my recent beads? Well I'm going to show them anyway...

Lots more over on the website...
