So, the beginning of the month, I removed two fifths of my earnings and put them in my savings account.
It's actually been very difficult and very eye opening living on a very small budget. When did biscuits get so expensive?! But I got to the end of this month on budget, yay!
On the recommendation of some friends, I've dowloaded a free trial of some software called You Need a Budget. It's amazing and I will definitely be buying it at the end of the trial. I'm a complete dunce at both maths and spreadsheets, but it's SO easy to use!
And the best thing about pretending I only work three days a week is that I have the other bit of my salary left at the end of the month to buy power tools and camera equipment, hurrah!

1 clove of garlic
1 tin cannelini beans
Chop peppers and courgettes into largish chunks and roast in the oven at 180 degrees (if you have a mental fan oven) or 200 degrees.

Some of them I designed and made a long time ago, like this moustache charm:
And this rather fab chunky moustache ring:
And others are brand new designs, like my mini moustache necklace...
...my little mini moustache post earrings:
Also, a little moustache charm ring:
And some dangly moustache earrings with gemstones. The boy thinks these are a bit too mental, but I rather like them!
So, there you are then. Cute and shiny silver moustaches.
Now available here on my website...

Finally got around to photographing them this weekend - I've not had a lot of experience photographing coloured gemstones, but I was really happy with how they turned out.
Sparkly crystal ladybugs!
Gorgeous bright green crystal gecko:
And some little sparkly crystal ladybug brooches:
These are all my personal pieces, but am definitely going to order some more soon and put them up on the website. Everyone needs sparkly bugs in their life, right?

You've been emailing me asking for little moustache earrings, and that's exactly what these are going to be - I'm also looking into getting gold plated moustaches.
I also get to do another custom skate necklace, orange and black this time, sent to somewhere in Europe. Can you guess the league/team by the colours...?
I've got a super-exciting new project coming up soon as well, but I can't tell you about it just yet...
