More details will be posted on this 🙂

I will love you and leave you here I am off to sort the kids out ready for school tomorrow.



Website now live.

Yes http://www.frit-addiction.co.uk is now live and stocked with some of the blends I have.  I have some blends being tested and hoping to get some results later on today if they are ok then I will be listing them too.

I have or hoping to do 10g sample bags, 30g and 50g bags for all blends.  I did consider doing jars too but with the postal rates they way they are I thought it was better to do bags cheaper for us all and you can get more per envelope.  There are 2 different size frits size 1 which is approx 0.05mm – 2mm and size 0 which is up to 0.05mm approx size.  There will also be powders for sale too that is left from fritting the glass. I am having the powder tested at the moment to see if it will be ok to use also a friend who enamels is testing it too.   So watch this space 😉

I will be hoping to do single colours too as well as blends. If you have any ideas for blends let me know and I will see what I can do.


Yes for 2 weeks only I will be having a 25% sale on my vickesbeads website. If you are like me this weather is getting you down it certainly is me.   So to try and cheer us all up I am having a sale so you can all stock up on your items to do your projects  while keeping dry.   All beads and findings on the website including my lampwork beads.

Right thats all for today happy shopping and I hope you are not all soaked and too flooded xx


Getting ready for this years fairs.

Yup getting ready sorting out stock, ordering more, making sure everything is labelled and bagged. I only have 4 fairs this year but hoping to book more if possible now a new bead fair organiser as started. They have taken over some fairs that were organised by someone else who sadly had to stop due to personal reasons.

Here is a list of my fairs this year

**Staffordshire bead fair

Best Western Stoke-on-Trent Moat House Hotel

Sunday 9th September 2011

10am to 4pm

Please be aware the venues with the **  will be the venues I will have the vickiesbeads stock at all other venues will only have my beads4breakfast lampwork bead stock.  Although if you are coming to the venues above you can order your items and I can take them along with me for you to collect.

If you are going to pop along to my first one the cheshire bead fair you may want to print this flyer off.

Along with the flyer its only £1 entry instead of £2

As you can see 3 of the fairs will be mainly vickiesbeads stock and there will be a tray of my lampwork beads. Stourbridge glass festival will be my main event for the lampwork beads.

If you are intersted in exhibiting at bead fairs then keep an eye on Sharon and Mark’s site http://www.beadyfairs.co.uk they will be going to  organise fairs and also taking over organising some fairs of a previous organiser.  I personally think they will be great and will do well and I do wish them well.   As both attend fairs themselves with their own businesses they know what traders and customers are looking for and need in fairs so will cater for those needs.

Other news is that my beads4breakfast website is no more. Due to financial reasons I have had to stop the website as customers were tending to use my etsy or ebay site so was really no need for the site. Although I do have a handmade lampwork bead section on my site you will find here. I do have some listed on my etsy at the moment and there is a 25% sale on all you need to do is enter the code ITSEASTER2012 for the discout to be done.

Right I am going to finish the rest of my Sunday with the kids ttfn 🙂

Yayyyy its friday.

Lie ins for the next 2 days wahoooooo lol.
