He Finally Asked!

Hello Lovelies,

A few weeks ago nearly 9 (yes NINE!) years after me and the boy got together he proposed!

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you will have seen this update but I wanted to share a few more details here :) 

Little bit of a back story - the boy had bought me a simple silver ring about 8 years ago which I wore everyday up until a couple of months ago when it broke :(

A couple of Saturdays ago we spent the morning at London Zoo which is one of my favourite places to visit, looking at all the lovely animals and spending a crazy amount of time at the new Tiger Territory. After the boy buying me a crazy amount of tiger related bits and bobs from the gift shop we went and sat in Regents Park. After a little while he said he had a couple of surprises for me, one of which as a new ring to replace my broken one (cue a little light bulb going on in my head) but he wanted to check I liked it. He asked me to close my eyes and hold out my hands... a few moment later he said I could open my eyes and he was down on one knee!

It turns out that he had been planning the proposal for over 2 months and had actually chosen every aspect of the design of the ring - even chosen the actual diamond in the centre.

I think the fact that I am now engaged has finally sunk in although I still get butterflies when I think about it! We are hoping to get married this time next year so this little blog may get taken over with wedding related joy!

Polka Dot Dreams Update

Sorry I have been a bit AWOL! Lots has been going on in the world of Polka Dot Dreams but I am hoping to get back into documenting my crafty life on this little spot!

I have been getting more and more ideas for crochet/knit jewellery so yesterday I created some new items for the shop.

What do you think?

All this and more can be found over on my shop :)
