Whirlwind 6 weeks!

WOW! The last 6 weeks has flown by! Although my shop was closed for 2 weeks, I had no down time. I took everything out and completely redecorated, from floor to ceiling. The new rug and light colors provide a lovely, light and airy backdrop for the hundreds of other colors displayed inside.

New classes are well underway, and new students have joined the Creative Beady Buddies group. I have had a marvelous (if too-short) visit with my super creative designer friend from Florida, celebrated my daughter’s birthday in NYC, and finally have begun to settle back down into a “normal” routine.

The class I am teaching now is a netted design; a 5 year old pattern. It’s a great refresher for some, and a great introduction for others, using virtually all seed beads. In a couple of weeks we will work on a slightly more advanced netted project with a staggered edge and spectacular crystal drops.

If you are in the area and would like to visit the shop, or are interested in a private class, be sure to let me know!

For now, Bead Happy, Judi
