Friday

She's gone!

Its disco night! I feel like my darling daughter is a sixteen year old not a six year old - we've had tears and tantrums over what she wanted to wear, I thought jeans and a pretty top but oh no my little madam had other ideas!! Then five minutes before she had to go she decided she didn't like her boots with the skirt she HAD to wear but needed new shoes!!!!!!!! It funny how at that age they think you can magic these things out of thin air! Now her bedroom has clothes all over the floor and it smalls of her perfume (Barbie body spray in Lollipop - bleurgh) OH my how am I going to cope when she is sixteen!!
The above bracelet is my latest work of art - now I can actually admit to this one being a "work of art" because it took forever (Just like First Kiss of Spring") I counted this time the amount of headpins - over 300 at last count! MY arm has been aching ever since but oh boy I love to make these!! I have a commission for one next and then I have many colour, gemstone combinations. So yes if you were wondering if I will take these on commissions I will - please remember that the choice of gemstone will greatly inflate the price! Oh and "kisses of Sunset" is Hessonite Garnet with my "kisses" of fine silver.

Now I'm just waiting for one tired little girl to come home for cuddles with her Mummy!

At sixteen she'll be after your make up, perfume, shoes etc..........Its no different with boys, my eldest will borrow anything remotely trendy my hubby has including aftershave and OMG, how long does he take to get ready!
