easter break

hello ladies, I'm a day late this week with my blog, I completely forgot what day of the week it was. With hubby being off work and my sister and nephews being down for a visit this week I've found it hard to keep track of the days as our routine has been all different this week. Its been lovely having time with our Ali, William and Andrew as well as Hubby, Mum and Matt. Mum went back with Ali and the kids on friday for a couple of weeks so it's very quiet at home with only us and matt at home.
We've not had the best weather to get out an do stuff so have been playing bingo and darts and things at home, but we've still managed to have fun. We did get out for a walk around newmillerdam on sunday, mum, ali and me had a girlie day shopping at meadowhall on tuesday while Paul and the kids had a boys day playing on the wii at home, and we all went to the royal armouries museum on wednesday.
Andrew and Paul found a den

everyone had an icecream after our walk round

my shopping on tuesday

In crafting news I've finally made the decision to close my jewellery website and sell off most of my made up jewellery and a lot of my bead supplies that I had at home. I'm selling the jewellery at reduced prices on my Andies Accessories facebook page and the beads in an auction. I'm not going to make anything likewhat they originally cost but I just want to clear the space now I've finally decided thats it. I'll still keep my tools and some beads etc and make the occasional piece for myself but I'm no longer going to make them for sale on my site.

  1. Looks like you have had a lovely fun family time.
    I am going to miss buying your jewellery Andie, but if its not making as much as your Accessories then its the best thing to do.
    I would love to buy but I am not on facbook, I guess its only done from there is it?

    1. Julie everythings just on facebook now, I think you can still view my page without being a facebook member, if theres anything on there that you like that isn't sold you could send me an email to saying what you like.

  2. Hope your auction goes well and you can claw back some money - so you can go spend it on your new hobby. Nice pictures of you all enjoying yourselves. xx

  3. End of an era Andie....
    I know how you feel though - at some point you have to think about all aspects of your business - space & storage, what sells & what doesn't etc...
    I'm not regretting shutting down my webpage as facebook has been much more successful for me, & this is obviously the case for you too.
    Wishing you continued success with Andies Accessories. xxx
    PS: Lovely family piccies... x

  5. Look as though a wonderful time had by all. Good luck with your venture and well done on your makes
