As I mentioned the other day, I have been pretty stressed recently with university and as a result, I have been ill on and off for a few weeks. It has also been a difficult week for my Mum as the sale on my Nanna’s flat has finally gone through after she passed away in summer 2011. While the sale of the flat has come as a relief after falling through once and several legal problems on the way, it has also been pretty upsetting as it finally brings everything to a close.
On Thursday night however, just as I was going to bed I got an email from Martine at iMake, saying I had won a giveaway! As usual, I had completely forgotten I had entered a giveaway so it came as a lovely surprise! What was even more exciting was that I had entered the giveaway on behalf of my Mum!
Both me and my Mum started silver-smithing classes a few years ago to make silver jewellery but sadly I had to leave because of university commitments. My mum still goes to the classes though and she loves it, which is why, when I saw that this was one of the giveaway prizes, I knew that I had to enter to try and win it for Mum!
I was so intrigued by the idea of stamped jewellery and the designs on the front cover were so appealing that I entered straight away and it really made my day getting the email! It also made my Mum’s too after a final day of removing the furniture from the flat before handing the keys over on Friday. We can’t wait for the book to arrive so that we can have a proper look at it and I’m sure it will give her plenty of inspiration for her next project at night class!
