Which started off a little ropey with. . .
January's wisdom tooth of doom and us not moving house when we were supposed to
In February we didn't move house and I made some wedding jewellery
In March we didn't move house, I became increasingly grumpy which was relieved by a trip north
Then there was April when we said our goodbyes to the Midlands and, after seven months of house selling shenanigans we moved to the Scottish borders!
May was all about settling into our new abode and starting to finally realise the sea glass and pottery jewellery ideas which had been brewing for years
June was full to the brim with local visits, learning new jewellery making techniques and launching my very own website!
July I continued working hard, announced a new stockist in The Smokehouse Gallery and had a wee holiday when my parents came to visit
August brought visits from much missed friends, jewellery work shops and my first fair since we moved
In September we celebrated the start of a new term without going back to school, I appeared in the local paper, attended another fair, visited Crossing Borders Open Studios, made my first bezel set ring, provided Chirnside Gallery with some jewellery, foraged for elderberries and damsons and enjoyed some stormy seas
October led to two more fairs, many new jewellery designs and seeing R's painting exhibited
November brought three new gallery stockists and snow, lots of snow which was beautiful but cancelled my last Christmas fair
Now December brought festive joy and R asking me a very important question* to which I answered yes!
Happy New Year Everyone!
*yes, I meant he proposed and yes, we are very excited!
