Good News and Bad News

Got back from Bangkok very late on Sunday (slept at 4am!) and then woke up early in the morning on Monday to unhappy news that my uncle had passed away on Saturday while I was away in Thailand. He was loved by all and will be terribly missed. ): I wish I was able to make in time for the funeral, but I was a couple of hours away from where he lived. So sad. Went to work looking like a certified zombie on Monday.

The good news is, I won Punto Jewelry's necklace design competition over the weekend! Yay! Thank you to everyone who helped me vote! My mum, colleagues (were tots amazing!) and good friends have been especially supportive. Thank you guys! And Mum, I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you (:

Best of all, I received another email from Laura of Punto Jewelry, yesterday evening, saying this:

"Hi Jillian,
I've printed your drawing this morning and we are starting discussions on producing your necklace.

Will give you updates, speak to you soon ;)"

Such exciting times! Thanks again everyone. I cannot wait!

If you want to read about the journey and my experience, I blogged about the competition here and here.

P/s: Bangkok was great with the girlies. Pictures in the next post! (:

Yes this design won! Yay!
