It was a week of having hopes dashed but a few beady silver linings did appear.
All signs seemed to point to this beautiful boy joining our family...
Unfortunately it wasn't until a third email exchange and a week's time that we learned that were were in fact the second applicants for him, not the first. My fingers remain crossed (and the pupper's paws are crossed as she would LOVE a little brother) that the first applicants decide that he's just too much of a love bug to take home so that he can come live with us instead!
There also was a little thing this week with a dream home that isn't to be, but on the upside, the speech therapy app I've been working on for months went live in the app store this weekend.
Beads help make things better too! I was so lucky to receive a spectacular assortment of lampwork in a giveaway held by the lovely Lesley of Thea Jewellery. All of the beads in the collage (plus a bunch more) with the exception of the set in the bottom left corner were from Lesley's stash. She sent some awesome focals as well as some really lovely coordinating sets. The set at the bottom with the sweet little bird and nest are also a giveaway winning, that one from Marianna of Star Girl Jewelry and Lampwork Glass. They're super cute!
Of course, as is my way, I'll just hoard these babies for a little while...keep them out on my coffee table in a little bowl and admire them!
Don't forget to join up on Tuesday with your virtual design plans for this little petal pink imprinted heart!
Hope your weekend was wonderful :)
