The Paper Bead Boutique

Sharing My Love of Paper Beading!

This is what I’m working on today!


Good Morning Paper Bead Friends!

I very rarely show my beads before they are finished…Partly because I feel the shine is what sometimes makes them so pretty! But today is your lucky day! These are the three I will seal today and here they are unfinished! What do you think? As I have shared with you in the past, the double barrel is by far my favorite paper bead shape so that’s no surprise! Be looking for them in my Etsy shop in the next day or two The beads on the left have the most beautiful silver metallic running through them! I also have some paper strips cut to do some cone beads today and I will share those with you later on!

So what are you working on today? I’d love to hear about it! Please share your Sunday projects with me in the comments section! Until next time, Happy Beading!

In a Creative Funk…


Good Morning Paper beading Friends!
Have you ever been in a creative funk? What do you do to recoup your creative juices? The above bracelet is all that I’ve been able to come up with lately…
I have been feeling less than creative for the last couple of weeks and when I feel this way, it’s hard for me to want to work on any crafting projects! I guess what’s going on around us effects our moods and in turn, our desires to get creative.
We’ve gotten my Mom thru her big move…Haven’t been feeling the best lately…Got a big ticket in the mail yesterday…Yes, I guess all of those things are effecting my desires!
If you are so inclined, I’d love to hear what motivates you when you get in that creative funk!
In the meantime, I am going to try to turn things around today and get something going! I’ll keep you posted! Until next time, Happy Beading!
