An Exciting Blog Win

I was very excited to find out at the end of last week that I was the winner of the blog giveaway from Rock n Wrap. El emailed me and I got to choose the colour of stone that I would like in my earings. I fell in love with the Lolly Pink as soon as I saw it. Bit of a pink lover.

Anyway I got to pick up the earings (made especially for me) from The Handmade Expo on Saturday. I just love them.

Check out all her other great earing in her etsy store. Or see her in person at the up and coming BrisStyle Indie Designers Market on the 5th December, St Augustines Church Hall and Grounds, Racecourse Road, Hamilton.

Thanks El.

See you there.

New Addition to my work space

The other day I made a trip to IKEA. And what a fun day that was. Mum and I spent the day wondering through the lovely displays and buying things we really didnt need but wanted anyway.

I did go there for a purpose and that was to get myself some shelves for my work room, or studio as it could be called. For so long I have had boxes piled everywhere but now, oh how wonderful it is.

One of the three massive boxes that only just fit in the car.

Well today I took the 3 massive boxes and began the construction. My husband did lend a hand. I thought it would take forever because it was so big but in the true Ikea way it was easy.

I documented the progress for you all.

And finally the finished product, complete with boxes also purchased from Ikea.

All my things are now tucked away neatly in the boxes and I probably wont be able to find anything ever again, but for now I feel organised and tidy. Oh thats a great feeling. Not sure how long it will last, better enjoy it. :)
