I really enjoy bead shows. The last show I went to I literally spent hours looking at all of the beads and gems. This time I will have an actual list of the supplies I need and am looking for.

Do you attend bead shows? What are some of your favorite items to purchase?


Happy New Year Friends

We are playing games and had our traditional take out Chinese food. All of us are fighting a little bit of a flu bug, but are still celebrating the coming of 2012. I wish all of you a wonderful 2012 full of art, love, and paying forward.

Looking forward to sharing more great art with all of you and supporting the art communities locally and online.
