ive been in the workshop for a while today. i missed the purple one! it felt strange and quiet without her stories (yes people who know me i do shut up sometimes!) i was making a ring i will be giving my older sister sarah off my younger sister megan and i for her 24th birthday soon.
i would show you the ring but its part of my new collection so its all top secret and under wraps SORRY!
i will show you soon!! you can look at my ugly mug for now instead!
|i hate binding wire with a passion!|
my wedding nails have taken a battering today. i dont think nail varnish and wet + dry paper match well!
goodbye slightly girlie jess ...hello scruffy jeweller hands!
|excuse the 'im not leaving the house so dont care what i look like' look ive got going on today!|
MISSING MY PARTNER IN CRIME.
lucy im excited for you to be home i miss my workshop buddy! i need a scratch checker!
although lucy is away we have still been able to share our excitement at the amazing things that are *fingers crossed* happening soon! ive also gotten lots of photos of sun, cocktails, food, the pool, tans ...i think my eyes have turned green with envy!!
|okay this looks slightly more depressing than i was going for|
aswell as new good things happening with our businesses i have also been looking into getting my teaching certificate. if i went back even just 4 years and you told me i would be interested in being a qualified teacher i would of laughed in your face. i used to be soo shy (i know its a little unbeleivable these days) when i was young and the thought would of been my worst nightmare.
ive always liked the idea of doing workshops even when i was shy but hadnt properly realised i would have to stand and teach a room of people but in the last few years ive learnt so much and ive loved the idea of passing on my knowledge.
ive loved helping my sister with random things about her college work showing her random drawing techniques etc. my job as a technician also showed me i absolutely love passing on things ive learnt or worked out through me doing things wrong, things ive researched or finding the best way to do things. it also showed me it wasnt so scary getting up infront of people i actually really enjoyed it. i find it really interesting the way peoples minds work and how different everyones work is and teaching a technique for example and seeing what each person does completely differently with this one same thing would be so interesting to me.
i started doing my application form to apply for a course at middlesbrough college today and my student finance. made me proud having to type my qualifications in to the form, i have a personal statement to write and a cv to update mind! im going to do the course part time so that i can spend time building my own business and creative village and enjoy teaching workshops while perfecting my skills at the same time! i think il spend tomorrow writing my personal statement, i weirdly like writing them.. i think thats a bit abnormal! im not sure if cv updating is as interesting mind. It will be strange calling myself a student again after a year of being staff working with students!
