New Kids on the Block!

No.1 Daughter finished her GCSE's yesterday!

Hooray!

She has coped amazingly well, not only over the 5 weeks of exams, but the previous 2 years worth of controlled assessments too!  I'm so proud of her!

To celebrate, she launched her Etsy Shop yesterday - Poppy's Pocket!


Most of you will know that Shannon makes the most beautiful fimo creations and charms (yes, I know I'm biased). 


On the back of successful sales through school and my classes she has taken the plunge and is going to try to sell her wares to the rest of the world too!

She would love it if you would pop over and have a wee look and let her know what you think!

And not only that, she's only gone and got the blogging bug too.

The Crafty Teen is her blog, where she posts lost of fimo tutorials (on Youtube also).  If you know anyone who would like to be inspired in this craft, let them know that there is a Crafty Teen in Belfast who loves to share her ideas & inspire others.

And one more 'New Kid' to mention.

My friend & fellow Bee Blessed buddy, Tina has just started up a wee blog called Secret Ingredient: Love.  Tina is not only a fab quilter, but makes the most mouthwatering brownies, cookies and more!  (I love it when she brings her choccy nut cookies to BB!).

She is still in the early stages of setting up her blog, but I'm sure she would love it if some of you said hello!

Yesterday was a significant day for another reason too.  In the evening, daughter no.3 had her graduation service from Primary School.  Only 6.5 school days leftof P7!  My baby is growing up!  Yikes!

Have a great Thursday!

  6. So much going on in your house! You must be so proud of all of them. I am off to check out all your links and most certainly will be showing Em the blog when she gets home. That will get her even more enthused about fimo and the wait to her birthday in August is going to be a long one for her!
