I am a 42 year old mom to a 2 year old and teenager. We live in Charlotte, NC (with my husband/their dad). While I live in a suburb I have been very heavy into edible gardening for about 6 six years. Because it can take so much time I did not think I had time for another hobby (obsession?). My mom helped change that.
My mother has been beading obsessively for about 2 years and has a huge stash of beads and supplies. During her last visit she “accidentally” left boxes and boxes of beads at my house. When I was straightening up I got into the box and started playing with them. Within an hour I was hooked.
While I used to let her assemble the pieces I designed I have now put together a few necklaces and earrings. I am really looking forward to creating more. Now I just have to find some way of wearing them all!
