Give Courage to Someone - ENcourage them

PIC #1 is an awesome drawing my husband did. The 2nd is a photo of my husband that his bro, Rob, did. I just love it - so moody. And PIC #3 is our new baby, Timmy Schmal..I am in love with him - we both are.

Had a pretty hard day today. My rat Edwina's dying, I had words with one of my family which hardly ever happens and I miss Gracie. Plus the OCD is bad today - random unwanted thoughts, guilt and anxiety - the usual.

Are you going through a hard time? I listen.

My girls, life is hard isn't it. When you're sensitive like me EVERYTHING is felt to the fullest - loss and pain and joy and laughter. It's a bit of a rollercoaster ride (no I'm not bi-polar but I do understand it :) )

We put up the Christmas tree and I think it's our best one yet! :) Sweet and simple.

I want to bless you with my jewellery, I hope I do. I hope you feel the love behind the brand.

Love Annie xx

A Normal Blog

My husband of 7 years today: Andrew Killick - THE Man.
Above: Timmy is the black one on the right :)
Lance and Andrew in the firetruck :)

A very tired me - I suppose we should all show at least one truthful shot ;)

Ooooo - the firetruck was actually fun :)

Hey Beautiful People!

Thought I'd do a normal blog instead of an advertising one (if you want a good deal, see the blog below this one ;) ).

I'd love to know what you think about Annie Blackberry. I get a lot of lovely emails from amazing people and it makes my year. But sometimes it's lonely creating for people you can't always see and a lot of the time you never even know what they think about what they've got.

It's been a year of loss for me. We lost a baby (miscarriage), our baby dog, Gracie (the love of our lives) to a horrible accident that we witnessed and I've lost a lot of friends with whom I've really tried to work things out. Sometimes I feel like Job. I'm scared to receive incase I lose.
It's also been a year of incredible change and hope. I am finally starting tog et well after 12 years of chronic illness, Annie Blackberry has gone further than I ever dreamed, I am meeting some incredible people from the fashion & TV folk right through to the little old lady who sits on her walker seat and talks about how her eyes have lost their colour. Everyone is special. And God's chosen us a wee puppy, Timmy. He's below.

I hope I can be there for as many of you as I can. I hope I can bless you in some small way. f you need prayer or a listening ear, or want a piece of jewellery made that has meaning and significance to you I'd be honoured to do it - email me at

A shout out to Kelsey for being who she is - I love your blog, you are truly unique. Also to my sister, Deborah, for being the best sister a girl could ever have.

Andrew and i have been married 7 years tomorrow - am looking forward to the next 77 :) What amazing adventures are yet to come! We WILL get to Paris and London :) Thank you for looking after me.

God bless you one and all,

Annie :) xxxxx
