Hello Paper Bead Friends!

It’s turned out to be a fairly nice day here in Seattle…Hope it is where you live as well!

As you can see, I’ve been busy working on beads this weekend! It seems whenever I get going on several sets at the same time, other things seem to get put on the back burner…Housework, My Etsy Shop, etc. But I guess sometimes, that’s the only way I can get new things completed! The beads above are all drying and hopefully will be ready to list by tomorrow!

I’ve been on a paper hunt for new and excited designs and feel I have enough to keep me busy half way through the summer! How about you? What are you working on this weekend? I’d love to hear about it!

Until next time, Happy Beading!


My First Attempt at Mixed Media!

Good Morning Paper Bead Friends!

Happy Easter to those that celebrate! Happy Sunday to those that don’t!

As you know I’ve been in a creative rut lately and I think I have found a way out! I’m dabbling in something new that’s been an interest of mine for awhile! I’m giving mixed media a shot! Here are my first two attempts at the first two stages! What do you think?


I am not done with them as of yet… I plan to add to them and frame them as well! I think they look nice so far for my first try at it! Here is the second of the two! If you have ever tried mixed media, I’d love to hear from you! Any tips you have are welcome!


I know this isn’t a paper beading project but it is paper, right? Until next time, Happy Crafting!
