Latest web project

You know what its like, you're so busy doing the work, you never take care of the housing keeping! Builders' homes are always in a state of remodelling, and web folk are always working on the next company site. Well, we've been working on our new corporate site here at element78 for, pretty much years. I even mentioned it in a post here before I left on my maternity leave two years ago! Which I guess makes us very busy folk.
Well, since coming back from maternity leave a year ago, I've been working on an all new concept which looks very much like it will actually launch at the end of the month.

I'm also hoping to find the time to revisit my own site ( which has been sat stagnent for a few years now.
I'm thinking Wordpress.

Work in progress

My latest commission is for a 3 colour resin bangle using cobalt and light blue with white. I've had to source some new resin dyes for the right shades so I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

Birds & cushions

I don't know what the trend of sweet little birds is all about these days, but they are everywhere, and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I own something adorned with them.

Hopefully something like these! I've just been going through my Etsy favourites and stopped for a browse at the Olive Etsy shop and came across these beauties.

Olive: 50s Birdcage Pillow
Olive: Gaggle Of Geese - Orange and White - Pillow Cover
Olive: The Birdie Bunch
I get very drawn to cushions and do actually have the need for them but find it hard to justify the purchase of them. They seem like a luxury item. Hair cut or cushions? You decide. Mind you I find it hard to justify a lot of my purchases so maybe I just need some retail therapy.
