The past week has been a complete whirlwind for me (neglecting blog,crafting etc...) but look what came into the Jewellers today which we went and picked up that happened to magically appear on my left hand......

My engagement ring! I haven't been able to stop staring at it and watching the diamond sparkle in the light (is this normal???). One of my worries is that the band is too thin (0.1 cm) and that it will break easily but if I waited and had a hugely expensive ring a) I would be waiting another few years and b) I would be too terrified to wear it!

Anyhoos lots of happy dancing and planning mental lists for next November........ Now onto the Jesters... sadly I've not caught up yet but some brilliant sparkly ones for today.....

Please click the photo to go to the shops....




Until next time........

July Jesters- Days 1-3

Finally getting around to Jestering...... My third item is a pretty pair of lucite flower earrings and I'm hoping to add a matching bracelet or necklace later today as soon as I get some accounts proposal for a client finished.

Looking back over the days these have definitely been my favourites.....

Hope everyone enjoys the sun!

All dressed out!

Payday only a few days ago and what do I do?? Look for ways to spend it! Two dressy occasions this month and panic attack as I only own one black skirt............ Since both events are completely different one outfit could suit both. Problem couldn't be too formal as it will drive me mad! But I needed to look the part at both. One is the "Star Awards" an awards ceremony for the College I work for and the other a close friend's wedding- thankfully the friend is male so no bridesmaid duties!

After braving the torrent of rain of Thursday afternoon in Hayle to discover the only dresses left were for stick insects I dragged my friend out to shop before 9am on a Saturday morning! TK Maxx, New Look, Monsoon... everywhere possible where I was thrust into dozens of dresses hmm and ahh and eventually came away with two. One a gorgeous leftover in TK perfect for summer and the other from New Look of all places! A lovely black with some gold stud detail.

Late lunch, a stroll in the bead shop then home where more beads has arrived via postie. Having slacked off most of the week due to other duties............ I made this!

My initial thought was that it would go well for next Thursday's Awards ceremony but it is not set in stone my outfit or the shoes.. shawl etc I will wear. You can find it here in my Folksy shop which hopefully will be filling up with more goodies now..... Only one more day to catch up with being a Jester.
