Home again and recycled





We are home from a WONDERFUL holiday in Morocco, laden with lots of goodies, refreshed and ready for more creations! Our new blogging friend who lives in Marrakech, very kindly met up with us and showed us around, thanks Elizabeth! Have a look at her blog here:

Above are photo's of Toby's collection for a special exhibition in Spirals, of Hebden Bridge, for 'The Big Green Weekend' - all things remade and recycled. I was the delivery taxi after school yesterday, and within 5 mins of Toby laying out his display in the shop, one of the bracelets, the chunky one, was sold!!

Lovely bracelets, I am not surprised one has already sold. The little button charm is really cute. It's so hard putting these 'mix and match' things together so they 'make sense'.

Great to hear you enjoyed your holiday and you're full of new ideas.

Glad you had a good holiday - hope there are photos to come. I'm not surprised either that that bracelet went so quick - it's so interesting!

Welcome back :)
And happy belated birthday Penny!

Great that the bracelet sold so fast. There's a real skill in putting bits of ephemera together to make a strong design, not to mention knowing how to physically connect it all to look so professional.
