Ok I haven’t updated this site for a while but I have been working on some new projects. One of those new projects is a shiny new blog called Hello and Create. The blog will still feature DIY’s, jewellery making and crafts but other posts too!
As much as I love Bead It and Weep I just wanted to have a site where I could write about a wider range of subjects. 2015 and the beginning of 2016 was a time of a massive change in my career and I needed a new blog to keep up with the shift in my interests and ideas.
Thank you to everyone who has read and/or followed this blog and I really hope you come over and to my new blog.

I work from home which has a lot of advantages, cups of tea when I want, unrestricted biscuit access, being available to take parcels and playing my music while I work.
This is a playlist of songs I have been filing invoices and designing a website to. I am particularly in love with the Jamie XX song, Loud Places.

It has been a little while since I posted up a playlist so I thought I would revive my mixtape posts. This playlist includes some of my favourite covers. I got the idea for this after I was listening to the Bob Dylan appreciation show on BBC 6Music on Sunday night. (I don’t think it was called the Bob Dylan appreciation show but that’s what I am calling) They played a lot of songs written by him that were covered by other artists and I started to think about what were my favourite cover songs.
This is my list and I am sure I missed off some great tracks. If you had written this what songs would you have included?
This is an old song by Jarvis Cocker but I love this music video…and the song of course. One of my favourites.
oh yes it is…
I love christmas and I love dusting off the old christmas playlist. I like all the christmas tunes but the same ones seem to get played all the time. To change it up a bit I have my alternative christmas playlist. It includes a song about accidentally setting fire to the tree, Bob Dylan singing about Santa and a punk version of Silent Night. Hope you like it.
