I have just arrived back from a few days away visiting my Grandad over on Anglesey with my sister and her new baby Isabella. We are well rested (and well fed!) and ready to get back to the torch tomorrow... I do miss it when I`m away.

There have been a few changes in the world of 'Beads by Clare Scott' over the past few months. I thought I`d give you links to all things 'Beads by Clare Scott' - your one stop reference point!
I have decided to open an outlet for 'made to order' beads on my website. Sometimes it is pretty hard going creating new designs all the time... so I decided to make past designs available. They can be seen here...

Please remember if there are ever any sets from the past you would like, just drop me a line and I`ll see what I can do. Some beads are one offs, bt some I can re-make. Obviously they won`t be exactly the same, handcrafted art never is... but I`m sure you wouln`t want that anyway...
Ok, next in line is my Artfire shop! It is very much like Etsy. Keep your eye out for discounts on the right hand side of my shop page.

I`m so excited to tell you about my latest endeavour.... Photography.
I am having so much fun with my new camera. I absolutely adore being outside, taking pictures of all things nature.
I have just joined a local Camera Club, where I entered six photographs into their Club Competition. I was astonished to find my photographs had won 10th, 6th and 3rd (out of 80 photographs) in the 'General' Category. In the A3 Size Category, my photograph won 3rd place (out of 18 photographs). In the Black and White Category, my photograph won 3rd place (out of 30 photographs).... and last but not least I won 2nd place in the 'Projected Image' Category.
Beginners luck I reckon!
