The gift of sharing crafting!

Good afternoon all, get the trumpets out I am happy to announce that a certain wee chap has gone to school this morning.  Yippee.  Mum got to go and stock up all the cupboards this morning, ready for the bad weather now.

We have no snow laying here but it was bitterly cold on my beach walk this morning, it looked very pretty, the sand was all frosty and the snow was delicately falling down.
We can see the mountains in the distance, from the beach we look out on to the North east coast of the top of Scotland.  My word there's some snow on them there hills!

I'm just away to do a couple of hours cutting and making my wedding invites, whilst I'm beavering away again I wanted to share a wee gift I got from my niece.
It is unfortunate that we live at opposite ends of the country as she loves crafting too, especially when I have boys.  Still when we do get together we usually get a little craft time in.
She sent me this......

Now to hang it up in my craft room.
My boys did get these beads when they were smaller but never really had the patience to sit and play with them.  It must be a boy thing, girls can certainly concentrate for longer.

I also mentioned that my eldest boy is doing his prelims just now, last one today and bless him, he can't wait to get it over and done.  Then it's back again in the Spring for the big ones.  Up to now he appears to have done well, he has only had three marks back, Chemistry and Maths he got A's and Biology a B.  I obviously doesn't get his brains from his mum!
I only hope he keeps up with the hard work and does as well in his main exams.

I guess that is all from me today, better get moving, enjoy the rest of your Thursday and hopefully you'll join me tomorrow in sharing an oldie too.  x

Pleased to hear the wee one went to school okay today. Love your little pressie...I agree with you about boys, unfortunately I had two and a tom-boy who had no interest in craft either!No snow as yet down here but we do have our own little micro climate! Carol x

Hello Erika, so glad to hear the wee lad went to school no problem today.
I love your little gift absolutely beautiful. I have one Grandson very interested in crafting of any kind also baking. Thomas well he would rather draw plans of roads or plan Battle Strategy. He likes War Gaming ... each to their own.
Just a light dusting of snow here so far, however the Mountains I see in the distance from my kitchen which faces North are very thick with snow.
Have a good evening

Hi Erika, what a lovely little gift, it will look good in your room.
Well done to your son on his marks, a nerve wraking time for him with exams.
Have a good weekend, hugs Kate x
