Worth a Pretty Penny... Litereally!

Firstly thanks so much to everyone who sent nice comments wishing us better. We're pretty much healthy again, except for that annoying cough that's always left over after a cold. But we're much happier (if a little stir crazy from being in the house after all the rain we've had... which I'd never complain about!) and peaceful at night :)

I've been getting my butt into gear creating presents and more jewellery trees.
We're going to Melbourne again this weekend for my cousin's girlfriend's 21st birthday party. She's a lovely girl and is studying law so she's got some brains upstairs too. Which is kinda disappointing for the rest of us, seeing as she's a stunner and a half! Some people get it all!

Anyway, this is what I made for her birthday...

It's a Australian penny that was left to me by my Grandfather when he died. He left me a lot of them and I had no idea what to do with them. Until Bonnie said she liked this necklace I made for my Mum. So again I find a use for the things laying around my house! :)

I really hope she likes it!

Today I'm setting off on the train to Melbourne all by myself. My parents are bringing the boys down tomorrow.... which means dinner and a movie with my husband tonight. Oh my god! I'm so excited, it's been so long since we could do something alone together!
It's so great of my parents to offer to have the kids for the night, they know the strain we're under and do their best to help. We're so fortunate to have such an awesome family! Thanks guys!

Well, wish me luck! Pictures of Jewellery Trees to come tomorrow.

Oh wait, this arrived last week...

I'm in love!
