I took some jewellery into work last week and considering it didnt cost a penny to put in there I actually made a fair bit - more than the craft fair that cost me £15 for a table. I think that will have to be a monthly thing now and I am considering putting some jewellery into offices after the success. It's not really expensive jewellery, more dress jewellery but it gets my name out there.

I also think I really need to stick to my original plan of OCCASION jewellery - I kinda went off on a tangent and made a tonne of stuff that doesnt fit into my website really but I can save that for the offices and the parties.

Oh, and I have my 1st PROPER tiara commission. I am so excited about it. I will post pics up when it's done! Right off to do dinner and get ready for a birthday party and college. Phew!

Well, we had our long weekend away in Somerset and the weather was just glorious. It was so peaceful and hot and we just fished!!!! Not that I am a fan of fishing but it was a good way to soak up the lushness of the place. We got back on Monday and I seem to have been washing clothes ever since. There's an abundance of housework to be done too but I am determined to get this stock count done this week. I just want to create and having to count everything is just driving me nuts so the sooner I get it done the better really.

We are off to Ipswich next weekend so wont get much of a chance to make anything then either - we have never been so busy as we are from now until the wedding! It's just crazy. My Sister In Law to be came round as she is sorting out the hen night and I am just pleased I don't have to worry about that as there's so much to worry about at the moment - my dieting is not going well at all at the moment and I may well be forced to try something drastic if things dont improve. I have approximately 4 weeks until my first and final dress fitting so I need to get my butt into gear with the exercise really.

Anyway, enough for now, probably bored you all silly and I'm not getting anything done here am I???

Bank Holiday Monday

We are going to Batcombe Vale in Somerset. The most beautiful place in England - it's so peaceful and quiet and there's lots of green space. I can't wait, I feel like I need a break. All this wedding planning and starting the business as well as working 30 hrs a week has worn me out. I have been instructed not to take any beads with me - but I intend to use the nature around me to inspire some designs and WILL be taking a sketch pad! (Shhh! Don't tell Neil!)

I really must......

.....get to bed!!! Neil is on nights and he leaves at 9.30 which is kind of early but kind of not!!! I often end up staying up till al hours and then being so unfit for work the next day.

.....start to blog!!! I keep meaning to but life often gets in the way and I think I spend way too much time on the computer anyway!

.....stop procrastinating and JUST DO IT!!!! I'm always thinking about doing stuff but never actually DO it and it frustrates the hell out of me!

.....finish my 1st stock count cos I am dying to make stuff!!
