Something a bit different ....

My fab blog buddy Tab has been giving me private lessons in jewellery making. I wanted something different for my 25th ... ahem ... birthday from Fae, something that i could keep. I thought it was about time i had a decent dressy watch seeing as i have 2 wedding's coming up soon and only have my trusty tigger watch with a black leather strap lol! So, thanks to Tab i sent Fae off with a shopping list and pointed her in the direction of a fabby online shop that Tab had told me about.

This afternoon whilst i had a few minutes to myself and not being bothered to make a card, i decided to make my watch. Fae's been asking me for a couple of weeks now if i've done it and it really needs to be made for when the Thai bride gets here .... long story ... will leave that for another day ... lets just say DH's family are weird!

So, this is how it arrived ... well it came in a jiffy bag not actually like that lol!

And, this is what i ended up with ... gosh aren't my wrists thin? I was gonna take a photo of it on but decided against it. I've got really hairy arms and didn't want to scare any of you! No, i'm not a werewolf lol! Let me know what you think. I need to go, Andy has just taken a leave of his senses and is preparing something for tea thats not even on the menu lol! You ask a man to do a simple task .... beyond him! Must be all the excitement of passing his theory test. God help me when he actually is given a license to drive unsupervised. Think i might learn to fly!
