I am a graphic designer by trade, and in my spare time I use my skills for other creative endeavors. I’ve been beading since I was 12; ever since the bead store opened down the street from my childhood home. When I was old enough to get a job, the first one I chose was to work for the woman who owned the shop, designing necklaces and earrings. She has since moved and sold the shop to a long time customer, and I’ve moved out of town but I still buy just about all my supplies there. I opened an etsy shop in August 2010 to support my beading addiction.
I also enjoy knitting/crochet, cooking, and gardening. This blog has evolved into a home for all my creative outlets, not just the one I am building into a business. If you’ve got a question about a project or how-to, feel free to leave it in the comments section and I will do my best to answer it!
