Happy New Year!!

This is my first blog of the year :) and if its your first time reading my blogs I’d like to say a big hello and welcome! I would also like to take this opportunity to give a few facts about myself ......

• I am turning 39 this year!

• I am married with two children (two girls 8 and 9), both are a lot of work lol.

• I started learning how to make jewellery in 2009.

• I worked as a biomedical scientist until my first child was born.

• Not only do I love jewellery but I also love the sea!

I’m hoping these facts give you a little insight into who I am and I plan to add more throughout the year.

I’m not sure about you but as the year comes to an end I start thinking about myself and what things I would like to improve on or what skill I would like to give a go. Firstly, I think I would like to nurture the relationships I have with family and friends. Last year I felt like I just got busier and so as a consequence of this I feel like I didn’t spend as much time just chatting and being with those I love, so this year I want to make a more conscious effort to spend time with those that are closest to me. My thoughts towards the end of the year kept going to the building amount of sea glass I have and that I should start using them in my jewellery. So, this year I would like to make a new collection of sea glass or incorporate it into existing collections – watch this space. Lastly I couldn’t think of a new skill I would like to learn however my eldest daughter announced that she would like to learn how to surf. I will not say what my initial reaction was but as I thought about it, I thought its something we could maybe try together? So I aim to at least give it one go….but maybe once the weather gets a bit warmer lol.

I would like to hear any ambitions you have for this year in the comments below. If your looking to learn how to make jewellery I have two classes coming up very soon – silver clay class 19th January and beaded jewellery class 26th January. If making jewellery isn’t for you but you would like some new sparkle then sign up my newsletter and you will get 10% off at www.kljewellerydesigns.com or if your already a member then check out the 11th day of Christmas offer, its valid all of January.

Well folks that’s all for today.

Until next Monday
