charmed I'm sure

A friend gave me some kilt pins , she thought I mightbe 
able to use them .
I have never done any beading or jewellery making
but this was a great opportunity to try .
I've started a little collection of charms and
been eyeing off my daughters bling and scheming
ways I can get at it .

This is probably not the best time
 of year to try a new craft .
My shop and my ebay shop are
the busiest they've ever been .
We are right in the middle of renovations
and the kids start school holidays tomorrow
and I have two jobs .

Of course I'll try to fit this in too
 but there's no guarantee I'll be charming about it .
