I won something!

I cannot believe it, the London Jewellery School had a competition running over the weekend where you submitted your designs and they chose their favourite.

I submitted my 18ct gold plated Gaia necklace. These are not only my favourite design but they are also becoming very popular with Beverley Knight taking ownership of hers last month!

Anyway, to get to the point I woke up this morning to a Facebook message saying I had won, not only that I was getting a voucher for one of their courses in London.
I have a long list of courses I want to take part in throughout the year but cannot for the life of me decide which I want to do first!

Its beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

I have been feeling like a real Scrooge this year with everything that has been happening lately I really couldn't be bothered.

I was asked to organise the staff Christmas meal for work, Friday morning came and I was terrified that it was going to be a disaster. I shouldn't have worried though, the venue was gorgeous and beautifully decorated, the staff were amazing and the meal was really scrummy!

Our company is quite small with only 16 of us but everyone gets on so well. The evening was for partners to come along as well so there was lots of chatting to be had. Our table was mainly talking about cars - no real surprise as we design transmissions for lots of car manufacturers.

I gave each couple one of my Christmas Cards with their meal choices in - good job I did as everyone had forgotten what they wanted!

Rob mentioned to the boss that the cards were my design and he was very impressed, they have been so supportive of my business and word quickly got around about what I do which is great!

The drink was flowing all night and everyone was 'merry' not wanting to leave at the end of the night!

The bosses are already talking about having a summer barbecue to celebrate the companies 5th birthday (I'd better get organising!)

Makes me realised what a fantastic company I work for.

Merry Christmas everyone.
