Saloukee in love…I had to mention it…

I know, I know … it’s been faaaaar too long since I blogged … the writing of my paper jewellery book has somehow overtaken my life the last few months … and I will have to get back on track before I update my blog fully … but I simply couldn’t let today go by without a huge thanks to ‘Upon a fold’ … for beautiful things, for thinking outside of the box and for being down right genius’!

So I turned 28 … and I wrote down a small list of things that I’d like/want/need and forwarded it to my boisterous brothers. They find it some what hard to get me the right thing and I admit, I am pretty fussy ; )  On the list were a couple of useful, yet eclectic things (which perhaps reveal more about me than I care to realise!!) … car radio, yoga mat, snowboarding knee pads … hmmmm …

But on the list (which to be honest I didn’t quite expect to ever get) was and I quote: “the most beautiful gift wrapping book ever (but the shop is in oz??!!)”

And bless my older brothers heart, he bit the bullet and ordered it … though not quite in time for my birthday … it was more than welcomed when it arrived! I was just as excited by the way it was so beautifully packaged, as to what it unveiled inside … simply delicious!
