    I’ve seen a few other bloggers do a weekly recap of their Instagram photos, and I thought it might be kind of fun to make it a feature here on my blog. Here’s what I got up to this week…

    My first Instagram video is a quickie snippet of my daily life. If you didn’t know, I am a metalsmith and have my own jewellery business called Bella-Bijou Jewellery.

    Starting Top left:

    The week started with me breaking my trusty cutters – not good when you use them everyday.
    Then it was Canada Day – gotta represent the True North Strong and Free!
    On the drive home the other night I snuck a quick snap of the orange and pink sky – lovely
    I treated myself to the amazingness that is a Magnum Gold bar last week – Salted Caramel and Chocolate, oh my!
    At some point, my nails matched my denim. I dug it.
    The hands of a jewellery maker. It isn’t always pretty making that bling!
    The fruits of my labours, and the culprit for the blackened fingers.
    At some point we busted out the mason jars and made homemade pickles this week. As you do.
    And finally, and the most exciting of all the Instagram posts this week for me – I hopped on the scale exactly a year to the date from me trying to lose weight, and hit the -25lb mark. Booyah!

    Are you on Instagram? Are you as addicted to it as I am?
