Moving Site Issues

Hi all – I’ve managed to move my site across but I’ve just noticed that a few of the permalinks have changed which means several of my internal and external links have broken. So sorry if your having trouble trying to find a particular post. There should only be a few to change but I’m doing it manually so it might take me a bit of time. The search function on this site works really well so I’d recommend trying that if you’re really trying to find something.

If anyone knows of an easier way of doing this let me know.

Until soon,

Amelia

***UPDATE***

Ok I think they are all fixed now. I’ll double check a few again tomorrow but if you notice anything not working properly just let me know via the comments or my contact page.

PS: My Food and Beauty galleries are all done if you want to take a look. The DIY one is hopefully coming in the next few days :)

***SECOND UPDATE***

My DIY Gallery is done too now so make sure you check it out. I double checked all the problem links again today and they all worked fine. I’m still working on a few things but the majority is done now so take a good look around. I’ll see you soon :)

Site Under Construction

online-blogging-resources-2Hi everyone, just to let you know that I’m currently working on improving my site over the next week or so things may not work as expected (I’m not very technologically literate so really anything could happen!). I’m moving servers and switching to WordPress as well as changing themes and installing a (so far really great looking) project gallery.

I’m super excited about these changes as I think they are should greatly improve the site’s navigation and layout. Hopefully everything will turn out ok and I’ll see you again soon :)

DIY Glittered Resin Cabochons

I love resin flower cabochons about as much as I love glitter and sequins (which is a lot) so I thought I’d have a go putting the two together.
All I did was put a little bit of glue around the edges and sprinkle on a tiny amount of glitter. I then filled the centre with some more glue to stick on the sequin. Too easy!
I tried out a few different designs – some with a lot of glitter and more colour but I ended up liking the minimal ones best.
These are going to be earrings. If you’d like to learn how to make these into earrings too, check out either of my past tutorials – How to Make Basic Post Earrings or DIY Resin Flower Earrings.
You can get resin cabochons from Ebay, Amazon or EtsyThe particular ones I used here were the 2cm diameter Dahlia ones.

Hope you enjoyed these. If you end up making some make sure to share your pics with me by either  tagging me at instagram (@bitsquare), twitter (@bit_square), google + (+ameliamadeleine)  or posting them to my facebook page. I’d love to see them. :)

Have a great week :)

Full moon rising

 Full moon behind cloud

It’s been a nice week really. The weather seems to be picking up here and it’s starting to feel a bit like spring now (the first crocus is about to open! – hopefully I’ll have a photo for next week of it). The moon was especially stunning this week too. I heard it was a super moon  – slightly closer to the earth than usual which made it look particularly large.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)
