Beadathon 2013 for Beads Of Courage BCCA

What is it I hear you ask!!!!  A BEADATHON that is!! Well I will tell you!

Next weekend Friday 26th July to Saturday 27th July I will be involved in this years' Beadathon which is a 24 hour marathon of lampwork beadmakers making beads for the Beads of Courage programme for children suffering with cancer  -  BCCA.

All the beads we make will be donated to the BoC programme and if you click here you can also make a donation on the Beadathon Just Giving page.  The lovely Jolene Wolfe of Kitzbitz Art Glass is hosting the Beadathon in her studio and also hosts the justgiving page. 

If you pop over to her Kitzbitz Art Glass blog she has her Robot Beep Beep beads up for adoption.

You can even name him too.

I hope you can help this wonderful charity by making a donation.

In my next post I will have some pics of my creations for the event

See you again soon

Sweet 16

I can't believe that my baby turned sweet 16 on 24th June!

Then the following week she went off on her Art Trip to Paris with school and she was most excited about visiting Chateau Pierrefonds which is the place that they filmed Merlin (TV series) as the castle  ~~Camelot.  She also went to Monet's garden at Giverny along with other galleries and Notre Dame.  This trip will be the intro to her A level Art in the sixth form in September, the theme is Architecture.

Monet's Garden

Notre Dame
She did enjoy it and I so want to go to Paris myself to check out all the Art galleries and the main art visits that just have to be done!!  One Day!!

So all thats left now to do is Billie's Birthday Trip with her friends to Brighton!  We love Brighton again its such an art inspiring place to be with the added bonus of being by the sea as well!!  We will be going on the 25th July which is the day after school finishes for the summer holidays!  A whole 6 weeks off,  Yay!!

So looking forward to that, lets hope this fabulous weather will hold out till then! 
Its countdown as school too, only 2 weeks to go!!!!!

Its been one mad, busy, hectic and exhausting year to date and finally we are coming to the end of all this mad, busy, hectic time.  Massive deep sigggggghhhh!!!!


I have the Beadathon coming up soon too. 
I will be joining fellow lampworkers to raise funds for the

Beads Of Courage charity   'Be Child Cancer Aware' campaign.  

I will give a bit shout out in my next post, so please check it out for details of how you can help us with the fund raising via the Just Giving page and what we will be doing!

See you very soon with all the details.
