I'm Sally and I've been designing and making laser cut jewellery in my flat in Glasgow since 2006. I live with my boyfriend Keith and my annoying cat Chi who loves to smash things. I like to use bright colours and multiple layers of acrylic to make bright, unique jewellery.

Folksy have changed their criteria for submissions recently and for jewellery it seems that you cant upload anything that incorporates beads you havent made yourself. Some of my stuff is allowed on the site and some of it isnt and some of it comes somewhere in between. Despite various emails back and forth they're being annoyingly vague about the whole thing: since I make jewellery for fun, I would rather it stayed that way and I didnt spend my time worrying about whether it was "handmade" enough for Folksy. The practical upshot of which is that I have a new shop on Good
I made one of those Tumblr things: http://fairy-cakes.tumblr.com/

Hey, how have you all been? I haven't written in this journal for months, disaster. Been mostly working and EXAMS, these things always get in the way dont they?
Last weekend I decided to take a break from studying to make a cake. As you do. Tea and cake are after all essential for learning, so there's my reasoning right there. I should mention now that my previous flatmates banned me from doing any baking following the grilled fairy cakes incident and the salt/sugar mix up while attempting to make scones. Basically Im not the best baker ever and they figured it was best if I wasnt allowed near an oven. Current flatmate, however, is blissful
