Oh, What a night!!

After months & months of careful planning & buying I celebrated my 40th birthday on Saturday with a fun-filled retro 70's style party surrounded by family & friends. And I can honestly say, hand on heart, that it really was the best night of my life so far, I had so much fun!! It was fantastic to be surrounded by people I love & everyone had a great time, so much so that the last person to leave didn't leave until 10 a.m. Monday morning, LOL. I recieved a mountain of birthday cards & some lovely presents, but I also got the shock of my life. My partner of 3 years surprised me with a proposal & engagement ring!! Even after 3 days of trying to get used to the idea that I will be getting married I am still in shock. I guess he thought I might be bored of having nothing to plan now the party's over, so now I have a wedding to plan!! :o)
With all the party planning going on I didn't plan on getting many miniatures made last week, until I recieved an e-mail from the wonderful Martha Puff (American Artisan) who is doing a couple of features for Dollshouse & Miniatures Scene Magazine (U.K.) & Dollshouse Miniatures Magazine (U.S.A.) who would like to feature my miniatures for the up-coming Festive/Holiday editions, so I had to quickly rustle up a few festive miniatures & send her the photos. This will be the first time I am to feature in an American miniatures magazine & I am quite excited about it, Martha has even promised to send me a copy of the magazine when it comes out over there!!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos & have a fantastic week. Kerry :o) .x.
