Jolicious is Forty-licious

This week has been a bit strange. I turned 40! I don't know why but that number seems to be such a milestone. I'm not sure how I feel about it - it's a mixture of good and bad. Unfortunately I have no means of stopping the wheels of time - it waits for no one! I guess I'll just have to accept it!

Anyone who knows me will know I am not a party animal or even that sociable! There was no big party just a quiet Dinner with my hubby who constantly reminds me that he is still in his 30's! We went to Claridges and had some great food at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant. I was even presented with a teeny weeny cake with a candle!

I received a fabulous gift from my friend Anne. It is a Pastel portrait of my three boys done by mutual friend and Artist Sarah James. I took it to the picture framing shop to be framed yesterday and can't wait to get it back to be hung in pride of place!

Sarah has recently set up her own Blog and Facebook Fan Page so please pop over and take a look at her pages - she is very talented.

My birthday celebrations aren't over yet! Next week I am having a long weekend in Florence with Hubby!

Before that I will try and get on top of listing new items in my shop. Here is a sneak peak of some of my new creations

I still have a tiny piece of the birthday cake the boys picked for me, so I might just go and finish it off before the return from school!

Hot Head Adventure!

I thought that some of you would like to see the results of my Lampwork Bead session with Beverley Hicklin at the London Jewellery School recently. So here goes!!

I really enjoyed the day and I am now the proud owner of a brand new Hot Head Torch! All I need is some time and space when the kids start school on Wednesday to get stuck into my latest venture!

Here of my personal favourites

I will be having a clearout in my Misi Shop soon and restocking with some new creations for the Autumn so I will keep everyone updated with that. It'll soon be Christmas!
