Hi! I have been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to sit down and write. My aunt, mother-in-law and I just got a little space that we are renting in a market. I have been busy sewing and filling the space. It is a lot of fun, a little bit of a gamble, not sure we are in the right spot for us, but it is a start. Then next week I am going the “Sewing Expo”. I am so excited! Four days of classes and products and people who love to sew. And Nancy Zieman (Sewing with Nancy) is going to be there. What fun.
Today I am looking at paper beads. They are fun to make and most of us have the craft supplies we need at home. Recycle junk mail or old magazines, a little glue, tooth pick or wood skewer, and a foam tray are about all you need. I like to add a gloss finish. I have included a few DIY’s so you can decide how you want to make your beads. Remember how you cut the paper makes a difference to the shape of the bead.
