One Week On....

Hello everyone! I am back from London....and I am pleased to say the show went really well! Thank you all so, so much for your lovely comments and well wishes for my adventure, it was so very much appreciated! Pictured above is a snapshot of the space we had {limited of course...} at the show...my work is in the cabinet on the brown paper and on the wall behind shown on the printed canvases...I arrived home this afternoon and was VERY glad to be greeted by the cool air of home, London was a sweltering 32 degrees C!!

I made lots of great contacts at the show, and was delighted to win an award!! *blush, shock, cripes* The British Jewellers Association Award for One Year On was awarded to me by Gordon Brown {the Chancellor of the Exchequer}...and I was very delighted with it too!!

Sharing the cabinet with me was my friend Marianne Anderson another Glasgow School of Art graduate who makes beautiful work.....so it was a lot of fun {despite the heat wave ;P}...

When in London I was lucky enough to meet the lovely Claire Kramer who is just the most amazing person {as you might imagine} and we had great fun together!! I really feel privileged to have met her, and become friends.....it just goes to show how cool this blogging malarky really is! - I love it! You gotta come up to my town next Claire....and try out some Glasgow banter ;)!

When I arrived home there was a lovely wee treat waiting for me...the new Innocent Smoothie Book! It is a visual treat, as it is very beautifully produced..with some amazing images {see below}...and I can't wait to try out some of the recipes. Shari I know you would love this book too!!


So....now to get some more snaps from the show uploaded to Flickr, to unpack, and get to bed. Back to work tomorrow!! It's so nice to be home....so nice to back to my blog! I missed it, missed you all and my favourite reads too...much catching up to do! I hope you are all well....and surviving the heat, there really is something to be said for cold countries you know...hehe...
hugs, xox
