“The Leaders & Best!”


Description from Kadie: This weekend is the Michigan vs. Michigan State game, and, for those of you that don't know, it is a BIG rivalry. If you ask anyone in our state their opinion, you'll probably hear about how their family has been cheering for one of the teams for generations.

Much like our state, the battle lines are drawn pretty clearly at LimaBeads. Our new friend Kate is always talking about the lovely color combination of green and white. What she apparently doesn't know is this is enemy territory. In the warehouse alone, we have 6 students/alumni of the Maize and Blue.

My fresh pick is a combination of not only two awesome colors, but also, a grouping of some of my favorite products! Blue Tiger Eye is a great shade of blue, and I love the glimpses of yellow running deep in the stone. Botswana Agate is another favorite of mine because of the movement happening within the stone. The versatility of leather, waxed linen, and our different threads blows my mind! And, pave beads, lets just say you should look at the comments to see a little something special I made for this weekend...
