Fimo Fun

Well I've been a bit lax on this blogging malarkey this week but it's just been all go.  Firstly we ran a lovely jewellery making party for a 13th birthday on Saturday followed by a fab day out at the Sincerely Yours Fair in Hinckley on Sunday.  Thank you to all that came to visit our stand and stopped by for a natter and to top up your bead stash.  Our new beginners kits went down a storm so we'll be doing a lot more of those for our upcoming fairs in Leigh, Lincoln and Cheshire.

I'm also really excited as I've been speaking to the lovely Claire at Lady Luck Jewellery this week about setting up a polymer clay demo and workshop.  This will be taking place on Saturday 7 May from 14:00 till 17:00 at Bulkington Village Centre.  We're limited to 8 places so if you're interested please get in touch.  I've attached a quick pic below of Claire's gorgeous animal print beads - can't wait!!!
We're also hoping to start doing some fun interviews with other local artists and beady people here in the coming months.   Both Claire and Sally at RedHotSal have agreed to be guinea pigs so watch this space.

Finally Mr Crook and I are off to sunny Devon for a weekend in March as we've been invited to attend a 'how to be good marrieds' course by the church we're getting married at in Braunton this June.  Not sure if that's the official title of the course but it sounds as though it'll be along those lines.  I'm just excited to be getting down there again.  Quick pic of the beach we'll be heading straight for as soon as lessons finish - soo excited!!!


  1. Love Braunton, beautiful :) You could pop in and pick up some cupcakes to keep you going on the way past ;)

  2. Hi Becky. We do too - can't wait to get down there again soon. Ooh don't tempt me - I had to stop looking at your blog as it was just pre-lunch and I was starting to dribble!!
