30th December 2012

Crikey, it's been a year since I wrote anything. Didn't that fly!
What has happened in the last 12 months?
Becky has set up her own social media/event management company (clever girl) and Geran is in his second year at Derby.  I completed and passed my diploma, for all the good that did, but it's done and dusted.
Beadwise I did a class with Paati Walton at Flame Off, and a couple with Di East. I learnt something at each one, just need the time to practice.
The fairs have been a mixed bag with Lincoln practically clearing us of stock whilst in Harrogate we couldn't give it away. Ah well, hopefully 2013 will be more consistent.

20th January 2012

What a busy year 2011 was, and so far 2012 is following in its footsteps.
Not made many beads, no inspiration, mojo - you name it, it's not there.

Geran is very happy at Derby, Becky has temporarily finished her stint in London & is off back to Durham for a bit.

I've been studying hard, maybe I can't manage study & beads, so come April/May I should be fine :)

The bead fair season for Fyrebirds starts in a couple of weeks, just as well I have plenty of stock. Kempton is a long drive, coming home all in the dark, so can't say it's my favourite but I do get to spend the night at Mum & Dad's so not all bad.
