Currently almost July!

The linky is early for July!  I bet when I go link up with Farley I'll be about number 458 on the list even though it's still June for another day. :)

Listening: Chris had a few changes to make on a customer's engagement ring design so he has been busy on his computer.  I've been listing to him tap away while I read some blogs and check Facebook.  If you need a custom jewellery piece that will be gorgeous and special I can sure point you in the right direction...!

Loving: No explanation necessary!

Thinking: Tomorrow we are off on a roadtrip from Calgary into the Okanagan Valley.  We are stopping for lunch in Banff, spending a night in Revelstoke on the way to visit my cousin in Summerland. Then we have 2 nights at a B&B in Kelowna.  I'm so excited!!

Wanting: Only one more week of holidays... boo! Hopefully those days go nice and slowly.

Needing: I had planned to get myself super organised for school so I don't feel like I'm chasing my tail all of next term.  As of right now I've done nothing... maybe I can get a heap done on the plane home! Haha.

Blogging Tip: Don't compete with other blogs, especially those that have huge followings. Blog about what you are excited about in your classroom/life and even if only a few people read each post it will be worth it.  Eventually you'll have some followers and friends in the bloggy world. :)

Happy almost-July friends!



  1. Isn't is so crazy how we end a school year, start summer, and then feel like we need to get organized for school again!? Ah! I am jealous that you are currently relaxing with your lovebird! Mine is on a business trip and I have a few more days until I see him! Wah!

    1. Hi Bridget,

      Yep - it seems that there's always something school related to think about! :)

  2. Great advice! You are right... no matter how many people your posts reach, as long as there are a few that are enjoying/laughing/learning from you it is worth it!
    Enjoy your vacation, it sounds like so much fun!

    1. Hi Paula,

      This ring design is not for me. :) It was butterfly inspired so is not my style but very special to the man who ordered it for his girlfriend.

  4. Okay yay, I assume that beautiful piece is for you, so that's awesome. :) Oh, and great advice...we all want to have 500 followers immediately and I learned quickly that doesn't happen right away.

    1. Hi Brandee,

      This one isn't for me! Chris designs lots of engagement rings every week so this was another one. He works with the men who buy them to make sure that each one is unique and has a special meaning for the couple, so there's always nips and tucks to be made once the initial design is finished and the ring is made. :)

  5. What is organization without procrastination!?!! Haha. We always have good intentions but it doesn't always work out that way! I'm your newest follower!
