My Creative Space

More Cameo brooch/pendants in different stages of progress, getting ready for the BIDM this weekend! Check out all of the talent that will be at the market on Saturday here, here, here and here.

For more creative spaces, drop by Kootoyoo.

And finally, today, I got the best ever birthday present (it was my birthday on Tuesday). We got the news that the Man is now in remission! I actually feel physically lighter and have been alternating between laughing and crying with relief all day. The Man will still do another couple of cycles of chemo and a stem cell transplant to make sure the nasties don't come back, but it's looking like we have this thing beat!

Happy belated Birthday. Love the brooches, wonderful news about your husband, its a great yet nervious feeling hearing the news about being in remission isnt it? Less than a week until the big shave..I am so excited, this week I am planning on getting my kids to style my hair with 'crazy styles' before the big chop (and shave) on Saturday.

Oh Melanie, I wish I had read this before the weekend so I could have told you in person how enormously happy I am to hear this news. And to wish you happy birthday as well!!!! I got a couple of nice photos of your stall on Saturday so I will try and get them uploaded to Flickr this week :)
