If you are a fellow instagram addict (my husband is getting a bit cross with me already!) then you can find me over there as @moonriversilver.
I've spent the morning working out how to import my pictures to a blog - my guinea pig was the blog I run for Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Centre (click here if you'd like to take a look) and now I'm messing about with my own.
Here are a few of my photos:
If you'd like to put your instagram pics on your blog then I recommend using SnapWidget to generate the code as I found it really simple. Just remember to add the source as https rather than the http in the original copy and paste (trust me, if you try it this will all make sense!)

It's a bit after the event now (doesn't time fly during the summer holidays!) but last month saw my first foray into the world of teaching.
I'd been invited to run a two day course for Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Summer School, so I diligently packed up my work shop and relocated to a local secondary school.
I have to say that it was a bit strange being back in a science lab again, it was not my favourite subject at school (and yes - labs still look and smell the same)!
I had a great two days with eight lovely and willing students. Over the two days they each made four pieces of jewellery, including a silver leaf and a gemstone tree of life. One of my ladies even made a silver ukelele pendant!
Sadly I was so busy teaching that I forgot to take any photos to show you (maybe next time).
I'm hoping to run some short classes of my own soon, so if you'd be interested in classes in Gloucester then watch this space or sign up for my newsletter here.
